With waterfowl season upon us, we're going to take a quick look at some of the camouflage options currently available.
Realtree® Max-4 HD™:
Advantage® MAX-4™ HD was designed to give hunters maximum effectiveness in open terrain. The pattern incorporates cattails, millet, milo, corn stalks, dead sunflowers, oak and maple leaves, cedar and oak limbs, plus a variety of other plant life into the largest camouflage artwork on the market. It melts into marshes, grasslands, deserts, broomsage, croplands - even the open canopy of a treetop. It's ideal for deer, turkey, waterfowl and western big game.
Mossy Oak® Duck Blind™
Duck Blind was designed specifically for avid duck and goose hunters in all flyways from the east to west coast - to be equally effective in marshes, potholes, riverbanks, reeds, tules, bottomland, corn fields, wheat stubble, rice fields and just about anywhere a waterfowl hunter would want to be hidden from the birds' view. Duck Blind is built on a base background of true dirt colors with different tones to represent wet and dry ground, with elements of millet, wild oats, corn stalks, phragmites, Johnson grass, soybeans and native grasses selected and placed to achieve maximum effectiveness. Unique shadows enhance depth and create the ultimate 3-D effect. Finally, muted shades of brown, tan, gray and soft black are incorporated for blending into harvested fields, marshes and wetland environments. All you have to do is sit down - and be the blind.
Mossy Oak® New Bottomland™
Bottomland is Mossy Oak's original camo pattern, created two decades ago. This pattern preserves the original design while applying advanced technology for increased stealth and effectiveness. The same field-proven components and colors, the same dirt and bark elements, the same ability to blend into dark environments and obscure a hunter's outline from every angle - all carefully enhanced with digital technology for even greater subtlety and realism.
Mossy Oak® Break-Up Infinity™
Featuring unprecedented depth, unequalled detail and elements with remarkable contrast, Break-Up Infinity truly offers hunters another dimension in camo.
Each element – leaves, limbs, acorns and branches – was selected to create unmatched realism and contrast to break up a hunter's silhouette. Then they were placed over multiple layers of actual images from the woods to create a multi-dimensional depth of field unlike any camouflage ever created.
Break-Up Infinity is the first pattern ever that you can actually look into much the same way you look into the woods.
Mossy Oak® Original Shadow Grass™ From tons of requests, we've learned that Original Shadow Grass is near and dear to the hearts of many waterfowlers. Whether hunting geese in the corn fields of Minnesota or greenheads in the rice fields of Arkansas, hunters everywhere swore by its effectiveness since the pattern was introduced in 1997.
Drake's Old School™ Camo As a company steeped in heritage, Drake Waterfowl Systems wanted to bring back a little bit of the magic found in our younger days hunting with our fathers and grandfathers. Brown camo was their choice of camouflage and it was extremely effective in the field. So with the nostalgia of days gone by merged with the innovation of today, Drake presents Old School Camo, the field-tested, time-honored camouflage pattern guaranteed to withstand the tests of time.
Drake's Old School™ Timber Camo With the overwhelming success of Drake's Old School Camo, they received countless requests for an "old school" pattern designed for timber hunters. Drake answered the call by developing Drake Old School Timber, a pattern composed of cypress gray and muddy water color tones with the same classic inspiration behind our brown Old School pattern. Old School Timber matches the unique terrain found in flooded green timber, buck brush, or willow and cypress brakes.
