    I just bought a g-20 blind in tangle camo. Will the fact that I didnt get a "good camo" like mossy oak or realtree hurt my hunt?

    I agree... Scent control is more important.

    camo is marketed to make money.... i have filled deer in blue jeans and a black t-shirt with my bow at 20 yards.... yes i still buy it though.... use my Guillee more tha anything else though ( it hides you from people better ) if you are still and quiet and as scent free as possible thaqt is what matters

    Tangle is just as good as RT or MO in my opinion. Like outdoorsman said, it's mostly marketing.

    I agree.. I shot a deer before after I got out of school and grabbed my old pse fire flight and headed to the woods w/o scent control or camo. just school clothes.. lol.. there was none whn I was a kid. Just acorn cover scent... anyways I just played the wind right and got my oportunity.
    Though camo does help you blend in better. a smart old dog of the woods can do it w/o...
