Default Why does it have to be black or its variations?

Sometime ago I read that it was demonstrated that deer have a tough time seeing colors in the red part of the spectrum, so Im thinking in camouflaging one of my hunting ARs in orange/brown/red.....

Lets hear your opinions, see your examples of colors and patterns.

Thanks to all.

With so many folks painting/coating their "black rifles" you'd figure more companies would just make them fde or gray or green as a base color. Remington does a great job on the R-25 G2 IMO ... lots of reds and browns in that one!

I just checked the pictures of the R-25 G2:

I like the pattern and colors but it seems to be designed more to fool human or bird eyes and not deer eyes.
Two objectives it doesn't meet, is that it doesn't break the siluete, and another one, is that it has black parts which is supposed to be non existing in nature. For now I consider the black thing as a hearsay. I remember reading about it but I don't remember the source or its authenticity.
And by the way, I have painted a couple of ARs with RustOleum camouflage paints and the results have been nice. Not perfect or awesome because I'm not an artist but good enough to blend in the bush to the human eye.

Yesterday afternoon I went "hunting" for flat orange spray paint. Neither my local Lowes or Home Depot had any. They only had gloss and fluorescent. Like always, Ace Hardware solved the problem. I bought there two different shades of orange, not flat but satin. Both Rust Oleum. One is orange and the other is cinnamon.
I'm thinking on making a pattern using those two colors plus OD Green.

The design and colors are inspired by the Red Rat Snake of Florida

Do you have any black snakes where you are? Stones and rocks that are black or burned wood/trees that turn to charcoal?

Real trucks dont have spark plugs.
