I don't know what the best is, but I just use Realtree AP. It seems to work well enough for me.

I have seen hunters take deer not wearing any camo at all. In fact they wore blue jeans and a red flanel shirt. I would be willing to bet that anything that breaks up a difinitive outline with no UV brightners would sufice. I prefer camo though, to hide my presence from other hunters that might otherwise decide the grass is greener in my tree.

I agree & I Too prefer to camo during bow season I use mossy oak obsession in the early season then change to mossy oak treestand or the realtree AP when the leaves change or drop this all depends on the area I am hunting I just try to find a pattern that will blend best for where I hunt

I have a little of both, mossy oak and realtree, plus some cheap fusion stuff from wal-mart too. All works the same in my book.

yeah i dont get too fussy on camo patterns, I think they all work well as long as they are washed properly to kill UV brighteners...

I don't think camo is as important as being as still as possible.
