Default Best camo pattern for Ohio terrain?

Hello fellow Ohioans,

Just wondering what everyone thinks is a good camo pattern for concealment while on the move? Say I need to grab my BOB and run for the hills. We have mostly wooded areas, so has anyone tried different camos? Multicam? Hunting camos?

Depends on the time of year IMO. Realtree or Mossy Oak are pretty darn good for most of the year. If there's snow on the ground, you'd be best served to have something with white in it to best blend in. I believe Realtree or Mossy Oak makes one with white in it.

any reason why not to use A-tacs all day? I think it's a good choice though.

Muticam is predominate in NG/Military & Law Enforcement (Good Guy) pattern and it works well in the Wooded terrain you are hinting at ... Our Militia testing has consistently shown Light color A-tacs to be wildly successful in Night time conditions ...

Best to get samples and try them in the field of operation you think you will be operating. For all four seasons in Ohio. Then forget you are wearing camo and practice movement behind terrain and cover. Practice preparing posting areas that allow you to remain for long periods of time including a place to urinate and deficate without moving. And pay more attention to the ability of your camo to shed water, dry out quickly and protect from cold. Plus obtain something portable that can be carried with you that will allow you to construct makeshift natural camouflage from right where you are......like an umbrella shell. Camo is for remaining still. It is for the most part irrelevant on the move.
