A confrontation is not always the best solution when protecting yourself. There's always the probability of getting hurt even if you have a good weapon or martial arts skills. Hiding or evasion would pose the wiser option because after all, being a survivalist or prepper is all about living for another day.
On the other side of the coin, background matching helps hunters go for the kill without being detected. When your game gets a scent or clue that you are there, it will not come closer but run away. The animal will not be able to see you, hence it will act naturally and move around the area. Once it's close enough, it's time to use your hunting weapon and get your prize.
Camouflage provides many advantages whether you are the hunter or the hunted. You are saving your own life if you have other people coming after you. A deer will not suspect that a human is around as long as you used the right techniques. Time and again, blending in the background with your clothing or hideout has proven its benefits.
