This should be in /g/ear...
But my answer is Vietnam War-era tiger-stripe, like this CISCO tiger boonie, issued to recon units, MAC-V SOG & CIDG.

This is an oldie but goodie.
Choose based on your biome #1.
For hunting, whatever you pick make sure you have that blaze orange hi-viz on over it. You do NOT want to be mistaken for a 4-legger.
I chose Marpat myself years ago before multicam came into being. Milsurp is also easy to locate.

Rhodesian Bushwar Era cammo. With counter insurgency shorts.

This is the most OPERATOR of cammo's. Anyone who argues is a Floppy or Commie Sypathiser.

holy fuck I didn't even see the CADPAT for a while. I was so focused on the bunny and then the others.

I got myself some surplus woodland camo (which are supposedly even the kind that soldiers wear for possible chemical attack prone areas, but I have my doubts) since I live in the Puget Sound. Seemed closest to what I've noticed bumbling through the woods, and I've never bought camo before so...*gestures widely*

Note also that CADPAT is darker than most of the others, and the gentleman wearing it is standing in front of what appears to be a partially shadowed depression in the ground. If he were standing ten feet to the right or left he'd stand out almost as badly as the guy in the repro tiger stripe. But also remember that any camouflage pattern printed on cloth is going to be a compromise.

Modern reproduction tiger stripe cammies from companies like Rothco seem generally to be printed with the same four colors as M81 Woodland, and have much too much black in them, plus shades of brown and dark olive drab that are way, way too dark. Look at Bat Guano's posts, >>18110 and >>18111, for images of what real actual period tiger stripe cammies actually looked like. The current copies mostly seem to be trying to shrink the original pattern by 50% or more (why? I don't know, but look at catalogs and note that the pictures of the repro gear show a much smaller, finer, denser pattern of skinnier black horizontal stripes than the originals). Between the smaller scale pattern elements and the much darker colors, trying to reproduce that pattern with the four colors of M81 Woodland results in a pattern that "blobs out" into muddy brownish greenish almost-black from more than fifty meters away, as you see in the picture. It could be much worse but there are better patterns out there.

If they were going to redesign the pattern anyway they might as well have put more khaki in it--well, really, the lightest color in some newly printed M81 Woodland, the "tan," is almost exactly the same shade as some companies' "coyote brown" or "flat dark earth," and the brown and green are nearly black. To work with the four colors from Woodland, it needs wider stripes of tan around the black stripes, for more of a disruptive effect. It might work better with the four colors from Green Dominant ERDL, or even from DPM, with its lighter green and khaki providing more contrast and breaking up the outline a bit better.

And yes, the biome in which you will use it is the determining factor. UCP only works well in very specific environments, for example.

I am given to understand, if I may be slightly more serious, that various of the US military's spec-ops units have been for the past decade or longer been using uniforms and web gear made in various civvie deer-hunting patterns for specific circumstances and specific environments. They have used various patterns created by Mossy Oak, Realtree, and a smaller company called Longleaf.

Copies of some of this stuff are supposedly being made in Russia for Spetsnaz use, as well.
