The first hundred years or so of my hunting career I wore jeans and a red & black plaid shirt. When I hunted Colorado, Utah and New Mexico, where they had regulations that specified a certain number of square inches of International Orange material had to be worn, that's what I wore. Always got my deer, even without camo. Now, hunting coyotes, bobcats and foxes, particularly when you're setting up and calling at ground level, breaking up your silhouette is more important. I've also found that camo is a good choice when going after pronghorns; the dudes have some fabulous eyesight, and the wide-open country they inhabit don't offer a whole lot of places for the hunter to hide out. Blending into the background when turkey hunting also improves your chances, since they have some pretty sharp eyesight.
