Do you use, or have you used a Ghillie Suit for hunting?

I was thinking about buying one for deer/hog hunting on private land.
I know very little about them. Are they worth the money? Pro's-Con's?

I don't know too much about them but I think they make a scent free suit and I would use them if I had one. I think that if the US Military uses them them they have to be a great product. My .02 cents.

Great for turkey hunting! I don't know if I would want to use it with my bow though.

I use one once in a while. I bought it a few years back when I switched to hunting with a recurve off the ground. it definitely breaks up your outline better than any other camo, but it can be inconvenient. I mainly use just a leafy net suit now that does almost as much good at concealing, but is less bulky and it collects fewer stickers.
