Does anyone know of a source for camo overalls that do not include light colors? I know this is all the rage with modern customers, but my experience and success leads me to favor the older style camo with dark colors that matches the tree trunk that I sit against. I have tried Google and even though I include "-bib" in my "shopping" search, and specify "verbatim", most of what comes up are bibs and none of the coveralls exclude bright white patches.

After photographing a couple patterns that I have and like, I realize that they look a lot brighter in the photos than they do in real life. I guess I need to go to a store rather than buying online. Unfortunately, the "sporting goods" stores around here have mostly become fashion clothing stores for the would-be sportsman. I guess that is the market, and I am outdated.

This pattern is pretty good. Just need to find it in a hunting coverall without the black wear patches. The other one posted has the new white strips that can be clearly seen when you zoom in. If they would leave the white out of this pattern, it would be quite good:

People who don't hunt wear them around town. "Look at me, I'm outdoorsy" LOL.

Guess we are just lucky to do the real thing. I'll be pulling my dark camo fleece shirt and pants over the faded coveralls for another season.

Worked well as always. Another big doe in the barn. Now I am just trophy hunting. Looks like I have pretty close to the desired 2:1 doe to buck ratio that I have been going for.

We have wasting disease here. Our veterinarian told me about three years ago that he personally would not touch a local deer anymore. I think overcrowding contributes to the wasting disease. Cannot grow a garden here, even in town, unless fenced, due to the deer population. Twenty years ago, you could pretty much grow a garden anywhere in the suburbs without a problem.

We have the same problem here with CWD. It was first discovered in Illinois near Roscoe which is only 15 miles from me. The state has hired sharpshooters the last several years to thin the deer population. Last I heard, they remove 25/year in each square mile. The meat is all tested and the healthy meat goes to local food pantries. We are talking thousands and thousands of pounds of venison going to the food pantries. Last report is that thinning the herds has reduced the percentage of infected deer significantly.

This is part of the reason to cut the local herd by 75% in last few years. The second reason is related to taking the stupid young bucks by some locals that works against my herd goals. Luckily, my place is a haven for deer so I have more control that my acreage might indicate. Just like managing a pond. We have had no local disease issues, but they are not far away.

Update: Bought these online (local "sporting goods stores had no insulated hunting coveralls - did not stock them at all).

A lot cheaper than my old ones but the zipper gave out after a lot of years of good service. Not the color that I wanted but I hope they are warm. May need to put on a cover suit on top to hide the bright colors. I'll report back. Will need to layer this evening.

You can always wash them with a brown dye to darken them some. You might be able to put dye in a spray bottle to control it a little better.

Maybe tumble them with some black walnut husks... Would add a cover scent too!

I wish these were still available. My first set wore out and I'd love another.

X2 on the soaking them with black walnut husks for a while....that'll darken up ANYTHING. Just be careful not to leave them in too long, or you'll have black overalls.
