I'm looking at getting a ghillie suit this year. I here they are very effective in getting you close to game. A lot of guys are using them now in the States for deer and predator hunting. What say you guys ?

Always wondered how they would work but never tried one. I know they work for our army snipers.

I could see useing it if the area hunted had zero blinds available. I think they look good, the snipers that use them remain motionless for as long as it takes, so I say if you can remain still enough they should work well. One other thing to consider is the scent factor, how hard are they to clean? more material means more area for scent to get on. also can you draw a bow well with it on or does all the strips get in the way. hope it works for you, let us know what you decide.

Good questions Final. You trim away the suit so it won't interfere with your bow and use a knee sock with the foot part cut out of it on your bow arm to keep everything out of the way. Noted Ghillie suit deer hunter Marc Anthony also bathes his suit in carbon. He's uses the Bush Rag brand, two piece with detachable hood.

They are expensive though, $200+ for a two piece outfit. Still looking for a bargain.

where I hunt , there is a lot of prickly ash and burrdock. I always figured that if I wore one that it would be coverd in burrs or I'd be hung up in a patch of prickly ash.

Right, that thought crossed my mind also. I'm thinking I'd put it on when I got to my stand/blind. For a spot and stock the hunt would hit a snag. Smile
