Elk - Deer - Antelope


Team ZGF believes that one of the most important parts of your hunt is your camouflage clothing and footwear. Nothing ruins a hunt faster than overheating, underdressing, using the wrong camo pattern or blistered feet. That it is why we couldn’t reinforce KUIU camo anymore than we do. There is just no better product on the market that is lighter, stretches more, cools faster, warms quicker and blends better than KUIU ultra light camouflage. KUIU is hands down the best camo we have ever worn and strongly recommend it for your next hunt.

Primary Footwear

Below are two choices of footwear companies that we know and love and highly recommend for your summer, spring and fall hunts. The footwear listed below are not necessarily the specific items we recommend but more of about the company themselves. These companies have a proven track record for high quality and comfort that is unmatched in our experience. Team ZGF recommends two types of boots for your hunt. 1) A summer light wight hiking boot- We find these have less aggressive soles are more flexible and tend not to heat your foot in those summer & fall months. 2) A waterproof over the ankle boot is recommended for your second pair. This boot will tend to be louder because of an aggressive sole but protects the ankle from sprains and wont allow your feet to get wet on those early morning stalks.

2090 Pro Evo GTX RR




Expedition boot for technical mountaineering, including climbing on high-altitude routes in the mountains and on glaciers.  Ideal for use in extremely low temperatures and where crampons are recommended.



Quest Origins 2 GTX®




Imagine yourself in a classic Alpine Movie, hiking and backpacking among high mountains and Chamois. The Quest Origins 2 GTX® combines a classic leather look with Salomon’s fit and technical innovation, so you’ll be able to keep going long after the credits roll.
