Back in 2000 I was totally dissatisfied with the camouflage clothing available to us here in Australia. The features always fell short in function & practicality & more important the patterns while looking great up close in the store when taken to the field actually made you stand out , totally opposite of what it was designed to do! Time for a radical change! I had been hunting for 40+ years & it seemed to me that shape is a dead giveaway, we see a animal via its shape ( movement also, which I’ll come back to ) & it makes sense that they see us in the same way.
Studies into game animal vision ( dichromatic ) revealed that they view the world in shades of black, white & grey. It also revealed that deer can see into the ultra violet spectrum ( blues ). So colour was not the main concern, although we hunters tend to favour a pattern with a least some green. Movement, well years of trials showed that you can indeed let a animal see you, the trick is not to be a threat to their life. When you no longer become a threat you are treated more with a curiosity, something to be aware of, often animals will come in close for a better look.






























THE PREDATOR/PREY RELATIONSHIP; we humans are a predator species, our eyes are located on the front of out face & we look at our prey ( the stalk ). Prey animals have eyes positioned on the sides of their heads. This affords them with 300+ degrees of vision so  they can see a predator approaching. Game animals have a pretty simple life, no mortgages, credit card debt or plasma tv to pay for, they eat, sleep & reproduce. To them its about surviving, so racing over the hill is only performed if it’s a mortal threat. Their could be another predator waiting over that hill, so better to sit tight, conserve energy & work out that strange shape that has just appeared. Here’s the good bit, if your human shape is now “ broken up “ you now have become a shape rather than a predator about to pounce.
BLACKFOOT BREAKUP is a series of lines & shape scientifically developed to make you a mere shape in the field. If your cover is blown you now have the time to access the trophy potential of that Stag ( thats if you are exposed, most times our hunters reveal that they approached to mere metres without being discovered ).
It’s   been 11 years   since   the introduction of Blackfoot Designs & many of our top bow hunters & 
rifle hunters bought Blackfoot Camouflage in it’s early days. These guys are in the field on a constant basis & many have clothing given to them for testing. I’m proud to say that on a growing basis these hunters CHOOSE to hunt in Blackfoot Designs clothing. As they say “ the proof is in the pudding “
Take the time to browse the site, remember all clothing & accessories has been born from years of practical hunting, not checked off by a hot shot business man who has never stepped foot into the Australian bush, let alone stalked a trophy stag or forded a swollen creek on route to camp. Thank you for visiting & good hunting to you.

See attached picture of a boar I took on Dunbar Station along the edges of the Elizabeth River in Oct Last year.

It was my first time wearing Blackfoot products and although I am new to bowhunting the remainder of my camo sits neglected in my cupboard. Yours is always first choice.

I look forward to the Southern Hunter Jacket keeping me warm out at Glen Innes.

Keep up the good work mate. Briggsy

JUST ARRIVED!!. Some time in the early 2000’s I sent some gear off to a guy in the US. Little did I know that in 2014 after many years of hard service Mark would battle altitude sickness to experience the “ roof of the world “ & take a magnificent Marco Polo Ram, undoubtably the worlds most prized trophy. His latest order of Blackfoot gear has just arrived Stateside & contained in his thank you email was this statement : 
The package arrived today. Perfect job on the sizes, so please do retain them in the file for my next order!! All of these items are absolutely magnificent. Of course, I expected that based on how superbly well all prior clothes have served me over the years. The value, function and style of each coat model, vest, and hat that I just received is incomparable with anything else on the market. Thanks for the vision that created them as well as the care applied in so finely producing them.
Best regards,
