I need your help!  I will be heading to hunt pronghorn in August, a 2,300 mile trip to high plain deserts surrounded by breathtaking views and I am looking to get a new set of hunting camo.  I have hunted this area before and I know what the surround area has in store for me.  I will be attempting Spot and Stalk and blind hunting methods so where the camo will really need to prove itself, is in my spot and stalk hunts.

Pronghorn do have a protanopia type color blindness, but their vision is different than deer because they shape of their protruding eyes allows them to see like they are looking through a set of 8X binoculars, are able to pick up movement at 3 miles away and see 300 degrees of the area around them.  With vision like that blending in is crucial.

My goal is to obtain a warm weather sun blocking hoodie, lightweight pants yet durable pants and a light jacket for mornings that might be a little chilly.  These choices won’t be apples to apples but I am trying to assemble a set of those three items for a warm to hot sunny days with little cover and cool crisp mornings.

I am going choose several sets of camo from different brands and let you see the environment with each camo pattern.   I am keeping the number small so we are not trying to pick from the 130 plus patterns I have on the Camo Matrix, I am just picking 6 that seem to have a good color scheme and have hot weather selections. 

The Choices are: –First Light Specter, Forloh Exposed, Gulch Gear CrossCover Brown, Hiden Aride Exile, Kryptek Obskura Transitional, Kuiu Valo

I will let everyone chime in with their choice after watching this video and I will purchase and wear the number 1 pick on my trip this August, share the trip and my findings on the real world effectiveness.

Here are a few shots of the area I will be hunting that I took on my last trip.  This area is heavy sage and very open with some pockets of green where herds of pronghorn will water.  Below you will see the patterns on these backgrounds and a link to a YouTube Video placing each camo pattern on the background. When you think you have the best option, submit your choice. 

Pick Your Favorite

For selecting your favorite, I will enter you in a raffle to receive a camo matrix hat.  This page will also have information on each one of these choices so you can investigate the features each item has to offer.  On top of that, if you head over to Instagram and find the Pick My Camo post, tag a buddy, make your choice and you will be entered twice along with your buddy.  If you are your buddy are selected, both of you win a hat.  The number of hats being given away will be based on the number of guesses I get and of course the number of hats I have to give.
