A common theme in the hunting industry…

Danner Boots

I wanted to search for 50 of what I considered to be the most well designed hunting Websites. What I found is that hunting business owners and managers like dark graphics and backgrounds. There is a lot of reverse type (light text on dark background).

Some of the sites I liked the most put their product images front and center. I loved how companies actually showed their products – from many angles too – rather than highlighting text. Descriptive copy definitely has its place, but I seemed to find the ones with expert design and imagery the most intriguing.

Summary

What’s Popular

  • Dark Backgrounds
  • Reverse Font
  • Big Images

Good Elements

  • Big Images
  • 3D Look
  • Light Backgrounds (Danner is my favorite)

    What a great line-up! I especially love the Buck Knives design. I’m glad to see someone other than a designer putting out a post like this. Show that not only artistic designer folks appreciate great designs. Thanks for sharing these :)

    Great post Dayne. I aspire to someday have Wired To Hunt make the list! It’s amazing how much influence a great/bad design can make on a users experience with your site.

    I feel that way too Mark. Design goes a long way to establishing trust between user and site owner.

    i feel a website is missing from your line up. I live in arkansas and one of the new hunting sites here has recently redesigned and blows a couple of the sites above out of the water. http://www.arkansasoutdoorsonline.com

    I like the design of Arkansas Outdoors Online, Charlie. Thanks for sharing.

    It follows a similar theme as some of my other favorites above – outdoor feel with the fence-like background and old paper overlay images. Very cool.

    Plus I love the white background behind the text. It makes it easy to read.

    I like the tips you have in the blog too. Especially the post Wildlife Photography Tip: Rule of Thirds

    I have to agree… I visit the Buck Knives site regularly and it is one of the best designs I have seen. The banner ad is really cool on the actual site itself… Here is another recently re-designed site that you should check out… http://www.sharppocketknives.com/

    As a web designer, I get to see things from both sides of the fence. What looks good to humans, yes the sites above are very impressive looking, hurts the search engine efforts of the site. What improves search engine optimization, is actually poor for human consumption. You have to serve two masters, humans and search engines. Web designers are being pressed more and more into striking a balance between what the customer wants, what the search engines want and what works.

    Good list of sites – all very clean. I’m surprised you included free open source templates with minimal changes but that’s the power of open source nowadays, always getting better.
