Deer vision HOW THEY SEE US IN THE STAND

I just read about how some people wash their hunting clothes in a UV blocker detergent. The article said deer see in a ultraviolet way and your camo appears blue and almost glows in the dark at dusk. Do any of you do this? Do you think it has helped? me and my dad and brothers have hunted for years and have never used this stuff but it makes me wonder have i missed alot of deer over the years because of this. please let me know your comments.

haha i was getting paranoid when i read the article. i tried to look up some of that UV detergent stuff on bassproshops.com and i couldnt find any. i think just breaking up your pattern and being still is the key. let me know if you use that stuff man. thanks for the comment.

many of the hunter's clothes wash detergent do not include UV brightners,. Tide, cheer, most name brand detergents have UV brightners to make the clothes apprear.... bright, something we don't want the camo to have,

I'm not one to know either, but I wonder what kind of percentage of hunting clothes have this problem, whether it's by brand/price/material I dont know but I think I have bigger things to worry about like my scent first.
