How a deer sees you
University of Georgia wildlife biologists Dr. Karl V. Miller and Dr. Gino D’Angelo spent years researching deer vision and the anatomical structure of deer’s eyes. Taking this knowledge, they gave recommendations on choosing a camouflage pattern that is most effective for deer hunters.
“Because of the deer’s limited acuity and poor depth perception, you need not be overly concerned with the fine details of camouflage patterns. Instead, set up with a sufficient background of cover similar to your attire. Focus on breaking up your human form by playing on the major visual themes common in most natural scenes – muted colors and large visually distinct elements.” *
The major failing of most camouflage patterns is having smaller elements that all blend into one large blob from a deer’s perspective, making the human form actually stand out versus blending into cover.
Cordia camouflage does exactly what Miller and D’Angelo suggest; breaking up your silhouette with large, visually distinct elements similar to the South Texas background cover you’ll be hunting.
