Ghillie Suit Link

With dove season fast approaching I am curious which brand of ghillie suit the THF hunters use? Let's hear what works for you.

Time is getting short to stock-up on everything we need for a succesful dove season. banana2

I wear one similar to the one you linked when in my layout blind. I don't recall the brand, I got it at the surplus store. It came with a jacket, pants, and hat with mask. I don't really like the mask though, as it blocks my mouth and hinders my ability to use my dove call, so I usually just use face paint instead.

Do you really feel a full out ghillie suit just to hunt doves? I've been hunting doves 10+ years and I do just fine in camo T-shirt and blue jeans...

I mean I could MAYBE understand if you were in a layout or duck or goose hunting... But dove?

I would be more worried about heat exhaustion than a few dove seeing you.

I just broke out in a sweat looking at that thing - 104 today and probably still in 90's on opening day.
Snake boots - camo shorts and shirt and that is too much! ninja

White shirt, jeans, ball cap, and beer. All that's needed for dove......and shotgun can't forget that, even though I'd be fine with just the beer lol

The Ghille may provide a tactical advantage.

If the dove
1) Do not see the hunter they will
2) Be more likely to land next to your mojo and,
3) Save shells by shooting them on the ground

I just grow my chest and back hair out and go shirtless. Same net effect.


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

I've shot my limit of birds sitting on the tail-gait of my truck.

How's that for a tactical advantage?

Camo tee and what ever pants are clean. Oh, and a hat to keep my shiny bald head from getting sun burned. Although after seeing that super sweet bird suit i might switch to that.
