What’s the best hunting camo? Take your pick

best hunting camo


We all have our favorite camo and have our opinions on the best hunting camo, but have you seen them all? 

Did you know that there are a bunch of camo makers on the market today? There’s a lot that I am sure you have never seen and wished you would have.  The variety of designs is staggering and they all will work in my opinion. So how do you decide?  That’s up to you.

For me, I like something different. The trees and leaves are great and they do the trick, but I just want something different. I’m not going to mention my favorites on here, but you should have the idea already what I like.  Everyone has different tastes in any clothing. The same goes for camo. You’re either a traditionalist and stick with the basics or you’re like me and tend to sway towards the cool factor. Neither is wrong, it’s up to you.

Below you will find every camo designer I could find. You’d be surprised how many on this list don’t show up on Google when searching “hunting camo”.  That’s a hint to all you camo makers out there. Make sure your websites get found. What you see below is just the companies with one sample of their patterns. Most of them have several designs to choose from for all terrains.  So when picking out your camo for the hunt, most of them will have options for in the trees, in the rocks, in the weeds or even on the water.  

Take a look at this list, visit the websites and check out all the designs. Then tell me what your favorite is in the comments. 

There’s no order to this list.

    I am a fusion guy, First Lite all the way!

    • Austin May 8, 2018 at 1:28 am

      First lite fusion for me as well.

    I think the versatile abilities of Predator Camo are hard to beat.

    The best camo is called “sit down & be quiet” your granddaddy hunted deer in a red plaid coat … Fred Bear

      100% correct. Spend your money on scent control, concealment and quiet. All these patterns are to trick human eyes. Look at how hard it is to see a whitetail…there a fairly solid color and white! Spend your money on scent control, quiet equipment, and true concealment (in a tree or a blind).

    Badlands approach!

    I’ve gotten away from wearing a lot of camo’s on the market due to their suceptabilty of exposing one to the animal I’m in pursuit of, (deer) due to ultraviolet colors used to produce most camo’s, namely blues. I wear more earth tone garments and do quite well as a result.

    I like realtree and mossy oak but regardless of the camo you use , when you hunt from the ground like I do; you better remain still as much as you can .
    I put my back against a big tree and use whatever is around me to make a naturel blind .
    Worked for the last 30 years .
    Good luck all !

    Realtree Hardwoods Green for early season, and Mossy Oak Treestand for late season are my picks.
