Guys,

I'm curious about what you all wear when hunting in a box blind? Do you wear anything to help conceal yourself from being silhouetted by the deer? Camo? Black? Head and face covering? If so black or camo?

Thanks,

Kinda depends on how far I am from game, bow I am more conscious of what I am wearing, 150 with a rifle not so concerned.

It helps to black out the rear windows of the blind, I have a curtain that is easy to move for a shot out the rear. The deer can see movement really easy with windows on both sides. I think making the blind dark inside helps. I have one blind that I will wear a face mask in because it is a bit close and the sun will light up my face in the evening.

If I plan on just hunting the blind dark clothes, black top jeans bottom. If I plan to walk and stalking camo. I also have curtains over Windows, wife made out of camo fabric, keeps sun out and concealed.

I don't think it matters in a box blind

I cover the opening behind me with a piece of siding and wear a camo hat, jacket and may include one of those camo net bavaclavas. Covering the opening behind me is necessary, the camo may or may not be.

Street clothes. Typically a t-shirt and shorts up until it gets below 50 or so. When it gets cold I wear insulated bibs and a coat. Usually not camo.

I have my blinds against some trees so the opportunity to be silouetted is minimized. Hoping to catch some deer unaware this year. I always wear camo whenever I go hunting in case I have to get out and stalk or if I want to change spots and coyote hunt or anything. Being prepared to whatever situation presents is the way to go for me.

I mainly bow hunt so if blind hunting I wear black shirt and baklava. I control shooting windows to allow least amount of light in. Rifle in a blind, usually in Missouri, I'm required to wear an orange vest and hat.

Does the baklava attract flies? Isn't it sticky to wear? I could never wear a baklava.

I have been in a blind in south texas with nothing but shorts on - boots and socks off as well as shirt - when it is 90 degrees in Oct-Nov all I am worried about is staying cool

The stickiness is offset by its deliciousness.
