SITKA® BIG GAME
Big game hunting conditions can vary a lot depending on where you are and what you’re going after, but they have one thing in common: traveling miles through landscape and wilderness to get close to animals that are year-round residents where you are just a visitor. SITKA Big Game products are specifically designed for hunters facing these unique challenges. From the hottest early seasons to subzero late seasons and tight timber to vantage points on skyline ridges, their highly-tuned systems are built to enhance performance with advanced fabrics, specialized design, and the only concealment patterns on the market that are scientifically designed to confuse the vision of big game animals.

SITKA® Whitetail
Compared to humans, whitetail deer have super-powered senses of smell and hearing. On top of that, they can detect the subtlest movements, even at long distances or elevated angles. SITKA Whitetail products feature advanced fabrics and designs that minimize noise, scents, and regulate body temperature across a wide range of conditions. This allows the hunter to enhance their focus and precision while remaining comfortable. Best of all, they utilize GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Elevated II, the only pattern scientifically engineered to confuse the vision of deer.

Our Why
Hunting is no longer a matter of life and death for most of us. We do not rely on wildlife for food, shelter, clothing or tools. The systems of modern society provide what we once had to earn on our own, which raises an interesting question: If you don’t need to hunt, why bother?
Why wake up hours before dawn to navigate a swamp in the dark? Why spend your weekends grinding out hard miles in the mountains or perching yourself in frigid stillness to find meat when you can simply buy it at the store?
Whether out of necessity or preference, the decision to hunt is empowerment through self-sufficiency. It is a conscious choice to value quality over convenience. This doesn’t only change how or what we eat; the hunting experience informs our relationship with the natural world and gives us a connection to self rarely afforded in our increasingly busy and industrialized world. The very act of hunting makes us more aware.
SITKA Gear was born from the belief that the experience of hunting is as important — if not more important — than the harvest. Going places few people go and enduring weather that keeps most hunters home is the fabric of our Tribe. We live for the uncommon experiences and awe-inspiring moments found through the pursuit. Hunting offers a focus rarely afforded to us in the constant distraction we face in our day-to-day lives. It provides a meaningful connection to the wild around us, and it awakens the wild still within us. This connection grounds us, gives us much-needed perspective, and shapes our lives far beyond a day spent in the field.
