Field Test: Mossy Oak Mountain Country Camo

posted on October 3, 2016

For decades, elk hunters have resorted to camouflage patterns designed for the whitetail woods. That custom has begun to fade in recent years thanks to additions to the pattern arsenal. One addition was Mossy Oak Brush, calculated to fade into the backdrop of sage and desert backgrounds. The company, an innovator in whitetail and turkey camouflage, entered the Western world in 2005, and Brush has been a staple of predator, mule deer and elk hunters ever since.

Now, Western hunters have another option: Mossy Oak Mountain Country. With a vision to help hunters disappear in the mountains and foothills of the West, creators at Mossy Oak used the latest in digital technology to blend the broad trunks of conifers and aspens with their boughs for a large pattern of precise focus. Melted into the background is the image of dull sagebrush interspersed with juniper and rocks. The gray and green pattern blends well in open country and timber settings alike, making it a great choice for hunters who routinely move in and out of Western forests.
