Got Camoflauge?

Does anybody else like camo? I recently moved to CA and totally new terrain and vegitation than my old hunting grounds. The hills are weeds with blue oak trees and shrubbery, while the wide valley bottoms are full of grape vines and fruit trees. Around here it looks like this:
Hunting, Fishing & Camping
I went for a hike and brought along some of my camo to test which pattern, if any, would do.
Hunting, Fishing & Camping
Hunting, Fishing & Camping
It seems that the best pattern for concealment near cover was Mossy Oak, followed by Real Tree Hardwoods, and then the original Real Tree (with eucalyptis leaves). I suppose Real Tree Xtra Brown and Advantage would work well too and probably Desert Tiger Stripe for cover in the weeds, but I don't have any. Woodland camo stuck out like a sore thumb.
Hunting, Fishing & Camping
Can't hardly see me, eh?

No, but I can smell you And as soon as you make a little movement, I will pick you out from 500 yards away. I am deer, watch my tail as I vanish over the next hill.

HAHAHAHA

as for the camo... your terrain is about the same as we have out here in AZ. at least in the lower desert. i'm in the process of making up a guille jacket to use for predetor hunting. i'm mainly using mossy ok break up with some added medium brown and tan fabric. i use a sheet of MO breakup as a cover for my pack. the small amount i've completed dissapears in the low desert but i need to come up with some kind of addon mesh for when i hunt up in the high pines.

Ithaca,

You may want to check out some surplus Swiss Alpenflage. The pattern would probably work very well in that area. I know Cheaper than Dirt carries it on a regular basis.

Sharpshooter, ever hear of Natgear camo? It looks perfect for that terrain. I'll see if I can find a link to some. Meanwhile, if you have a Cabelas catalog, I believe they still have it.

Edit: Here's a link to Natgear brand camo.
