  • I can't remember what month issue it was, but one OL mag. showed a bow with fake leaves zip tied to it to give it a more 3D look

    I can't remember what month issue it was, but one OL mag. showed a bow with fake leaves zip tied to it to give it a more 3D look in the woods. I tried it and have had great success (or just lucky). Anyone else try this or have any other secrets they use to give them that extra-stealth edge?

    You might want to check out Sneaky Leaf (Google them) and see their products which I have used to good effect for several years, now. You don't have to worry about your foliage wilting on you and the leaves would be easy to attach to your bow with zip ties.

      I mostly wear brown canvas overalls like you get at the hardware store. I have found that camo has little effect on hunting success.

        Yeah, I've always been intrigued by that product, but wondered if it was noisy at the shot, but guess not. Bet it'd be great for turkey hunting!
        One trick I use is my "bargain ghillie suit" You take bunches of fake grass (you can find it in many outdoor stores in the waterfowl section) and zip-tie the bunches into bundles. Then you safety-pin the bundles to a piece of regular camo. It works great - as good as store-bought 3D camo, although it's kind of easy to rip off the bundles when going through brush, and you do want to make sure none of the safety pins have opened before sitting down!
