    You would think that black or dark colored clothes are best.
    So a cars head lights shines across the field your detecting. Your stand out, dark against light brown soil.
    So what's your thoughts on camo at night.

    I have done really very early hunts before and I must admit to liking very early to going out late. But its hard to get up to early then not feel tired later in that day.
    Its easier to go out in the evening and back at a reasonable time. Especially now the dark evenings are drawing in.

    Some places that I hunt I want to be seen especially during hunting season. So I wear bright orange to keep from getting an arrow up my butt !

    If you have at your front... your back part is still unprotected... we don't talk about super experienced hunters from wild part of Russia. Remember about that... ;) Don't think this way ;)

    Use reflective stripes in these case. Put them on both arms:

    Police won't be hunting for you at night time. In any case you can set a guy at high point to track down police. If police is spotted, he informs you by radio
