Wicks Means Sweat-Free Vision to Enhance Your Athletic Performance

Having sweat pour down my forehead into my eyes certainly is annoying when shooting on a hot summer's day -- since I had to stop frequently to wipe my eyes. If you're tired of blurred vision or stinging eyes from sweat, try a pair of Wicks. The company has come up with a strip that keeps the sweat from your eyes that can be used while hiking, gardening, fishing, boating, riding a bike, kayaking or, performing any sports activity or while working. They are great for any physically demanding activity where “Sweat Free Vision” is a must. When sweat drips into your eyes or onto your glasses it blurs your vision and stings your eyes.

After trying to wipe my eyes one crash too many, while mountain biking, the inventor - Joseph Vanderwoort - says he hought there had to be a better way to keep sweat out of his eyes and s came up with WICKS. Standard Helmet Pads and Head/Sweat Bands just aren’t as effective, functional and simple as Wicks are.
THE SWEAT DOESN'T STOP, BUT YOU CAN KEEP THE SWEAT OUT OF YOUR EYES WITH WICKS!

Wicks comes in 10 pair backs for $7.99 and in an assortment of colors. For more information, please check web site http://www.eyewicks.com.

No More Slippage - Koola Buck’s Anti-Microbial Carcass Spray

Slipping, slippage and hair shedding are terms that  taxidermists use to describe hair loss on capes, hides and skins when the hair falls out of the hide. It is a term that you don’t want to hear. Epidermal slippage can occur before, during or after tanning and occurs due to bacteria getting into the hair follicles.  Basically, the follicle starts to decay and the hair falls out of the hide. To prevent this from happening, you need to properly prepare the hide in the field by spraying it with the Koola Buck Anti- Microbial Spray.

Surface PH at the time of harvest is neutral at 7.0, as heat, dirt and other debris begin to contaminate the surface the PH begins to rise. By applying the Koola Buck Anti-Microbial Spray, the PH level is significantly lowered on the cape, which incidentally greatly lowers the growth of bacteria thereby eliminating hair slippage. Simply put – avoid bacteria – avoid slippage. Spray Koola Buck Anti-Microbial Spray.

 

The Koola Buck Anti-Microbial Spray is ideal for use on game meat as well. Game meat is a precious commodity and hard to come by, so why not give your meat all the care it deserves. Simply spray the Koola Buck Anti-Microbial Spray directly on the meat to keep bacteria from growing.

 

 

Each 10-ounce bottle of Anti-Microbial Carcass Spray will treat two to three deer or an entire elk, moose or large-game animal. To use, simply apply generously to the carcass to prevent flies and insects from laying eggs in the meat. The use of the Koola Buck Anti-microbial Spray significantly lowers the growth of bacteria and mold, in doing so, you can ensure the quality of your hide and age your carcass longer with less waste and spoilage, while ensuring the safety of the meat you feed your family and friends.

 

This new Anti-Microbial Carcass Spray is available at www.koolabuck.com and at select dealers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $12.99. To find a dealer near you, visit http://www:koolabuck.com/dealers.com/.

Trekking's Extreme Ultralite Backpacking & Travel Towels

No matter where you're going or what you're doing, pack up one or more of Trekking's Extreme Ultralite Backpacking & Travel Towels. It's great whether you're sweating or drying off -- and especially useful if you're involved in archery, boating, fishing, picniking, camping, hiking, shooting and more.

I tried the large 58” x 34” towel that weighs under 6 oz and packs into very small spaces. It’s large enough to wear as a sarong or wrap, and perfect for swimming or bathing! It makes an instant shawl for sun protection, and a wonderful travel blanket for the plane, car or train. I even tried it to cover my legs while paddling my kayak! For the serious backpacker, the 3 oz. half-size 34” x 28” towel is just right. Either size dries so fast, you won’t think you even had it wet.

For traveling minimalists, there’s an even smaller version weighing about 1.3 oz and about 19" square. Use it as a towel, neckerchief or headgear.
The Extreme Ultralite Backpacking & Travel Towel dries faster than any other towel on the market. Unlike microfiber towels that can take time to dry, the Extreme Ultralite Backpacking & Travel Towel dries quickly and is ready to use again in no time!

These towels offer superior odor resistance due to their Silver antimicrobial technology, so no need to worry about funky odors that come from bacteria. The Extreme Ultralite Backpacking & Travel Towel will stay clean and fresher between washings!

Both beautiful and functional, the Extreme Ultralite Backpacking & Travel Towel comes in vibrant patterns and colors that won’t fade. These towels range from $14.95 to $59.95.

Unlike standard aloe vera gel that seals in the heat from a burn and cool, Unburn removes the heat for fast healing and relief. It's a great product to have on hand for archers, hikers, or anyone spending a good amount of time outdoors.

• The gel controls cooling by acting as a heat exchanger
• The gel promotes heat transfer through the gel into the air

Formulated with 2.5% Lidocaine, Unburn gives you quick pain relief in addition to Vitamin E and Aloe to soothe the skin and prevent peeling.

Unburn is available available in 2 oz. and 8 oz. bottles and available at Walmart, and other stores nationwide. An 8 oz bottle of Unburn is family-sized, good for vacations, barbecues, and camping trips and sells for $11.99.

Keep Your Gear Dry With SeaLife’s Moisture Muncher™ Packets and Capsules

 Being certain that your expensive electronics and camera gear will remain dry and completely operational when enjoying outdoor activities has always been a major challenge—that is, until now. With SeaLife Moisture Muncher Drying Agent packets and capsules, moisture can be quickly and easily removed from the containers that hold your valuables to prevent fogging, mildew and corrosion, saving you the heartache of equipment failure that leads to product replacement or, even worse, losing irreplaceable images on a camera.

Moisture Muncher packets are conveniently small, measuring 3 inches by 5 inches with a thickness of just a quarter of an inch, and they weigh one ounce. They are very easy to use; simply place a Moisture Muncher packet inside an airtight storage case, container or resealable plastic bag along with your personal items you want to keep dry. The area inside the container will quickly become a moisture-free zone. Each time the container is opened, the moisture level may rise, but when closed again, the Moisture Muncher Drying Agents go to work to remove any moisture that entered the container. The more you open the container in humid environments, the harder the Moisture Muncher will work.

The capsules work to remove moisture in smaller enclosures. Measuring 1 5/8 in length and 5/16 in diameter, each capsule weighs less than a gram. The capsules are for use inside of underwater camera housings and other small, sealed containers and dry boxes.

Each Moisture Muncher can absorb up to 20 percent of its own weight in water vapor. Starting out blue in color, the Moisture Muncher crystals turn pink as they absorb moisture. Once they are completely pink, you’ll have a visual indicator that they are at maximum moisture capacity and need to be replaced.

The one-ounce Moisture Muncher packets come in a resealable package of three, and the capsules are available in a resealable package of 10. It is recommended that a one-ounce package be used for every cubic foot of container space. You can use more, depending on how well the container is sealed, how often the container is opened, and how high the level of humidity.

AMMUNITION ---- FOR RIFLE, SHOTGUN, HANDGUN

BERGER BULLETS

Berger Match VLD Field Testing Results

The VLD (Very Low Drag) design incorporates specific features that creates a bullet with a higher than normal BC. The primary design feature is a secant ogive. This sharp nose shape (secant ogive) allows the VLD to shoot flatter and be less affected by the wind. The VLD bullet has the ability to penetrate from 1 to 3 inches in the animal before it starts to expand. The VLD's delayed expansion allows it to open up deep inside the organs creating a devastating wound channel. This massive organ damage is too much for an animal to handle which leads to the animal dropping fast. 

Berger VLD bullets are available in 6mm, 25, 6.5mm, 7mm and 30 caliber. Berger VLD's are also available in 22 caliber but the 22 caliber are not recommended for use on big game.

For more information write to Berger Bullets, 4275 N. Palm Street, Fullerton, CA 92835 or by calling 714-447-5456. Or, check out their interactive web site at www.bergerbullets.com or send an email at sales@bergerbullets.com.

BASCHIERI & PELLAHRI

The first set of premium pheasant loads was manufactured by B&P America, a firm located in Dallas, Texas, and from Baschieri and Pellahri, a world-renowned Italian firm that has  been making shotgun shells since 1929 that is used in Olympic shooting events. Tested were 12, 16 and 20 gauge loads of ultra-hard polished lead, number 6 shot, on both pheasants and chukkas and found them to be outstanding. The loads were easy on the shoulder and appeared to add 5-10 yards on to our effective shooting range.

Hornady announces 375 Ruger loads

The engineering expertise of two American shooting sports legends collaborated once again to create practical, useful and hard-hitting large and dangerous game cartridges for the brand new 375 Ruger. Similar to the 30-06 in overall length, the 375 Ruger delivers performance that exceeds the 375 H&H — long considered a benchmark cartridge for African big-game hunters. The cartridge was designed from the ground up to provide greater knockdown power with a shorter cartridge from a standard action and a 20” barrel. Thanks to optimized case geometry and advances to propellant technology, the 375 Ruger improves on the velocity of the 375 H&H by 150 fps.

Hornady produces the 375 Ruger in three different loads, including a 270 gr. Spire Point Recoil-Proof, 300 gr. Round Nose and a 300 gr. Solid. Hornady took the conventional spire point design to a new level with their Spire Point Recoil-Proof bullet. This bullet has a longer give and less exposed lead which helps protect the bullet from deformation under recoil in rifle magazines.

For more information, check web site www.hornady.com.

Hornady introduces the 308 Marlin Express

The 308 Marlin Express offers devastating long-range performance along with high-tech propellants, optimized case geometry and a highly refi ned 160 grain Evolution bullet. It is an extension of Hornady’s LEVERevolution® line and combines Hornady’s revolutionary FlexTip™ technology with a profile similar to match bullets. New technology in the jacket/core construction offers extraordinary expansion, deep penetration and high weight retention. Combined with the most advanced propellants that deliver exceptional velocity at conventional pressure, the 308 Marlin Express is the pinnacle of performance from a 30-caliber lever gun cartridge, all with less recoil than the 308 Winchester.

Hornady's Classic Big Game Load in the 450/400 Nitro Express 3"

Hornady engineers replicated a 100-yearold African legend using modern technology and manufacturing processes to perfect the 450/400 Nitro Express 3" ammunition.The 450/400 Nitro Express 3" comes loaded with either a 400 gr. RN expanding bullet or FMJ-RN Solid. Hornady went to great lengths to ensure these loads will regulate in double rifles.
The ideal ammo for hunting hippo, buffalo and other thick-skinned game, the 450/400 Nitro Express 3" also features cutting-edge propellant technology ensuring consistent performance in all weather types.

For more information check web site www.hornady.com.

Hornady Updates the Classic 9.3 x 74R

The 9.3 x 74R was originally designed in Germany during the early 1900’s. Hornady offers a contemporary update on the load by offering a 286 grain Spire Point Recoil-Proof bullet loaded to factory specifi cations and designed to deliver controlled expansion and devastating terminal performance on big game from a double rifle, while regulating.

Featuring a high-tech propellant, the 9.3 x 74R provides maximum case fill for consistent ignition while providing temperature sensitivity in extreme climates.
This load also features cartridge cases manufactured in-house to the same exacting tolerances of Hornady Match brass for maximum consistency.

For more details, check web site www.hornady.com.

Hornady’s new 30 T/C offers reduced recoil, smaller size and more performance.
Quite possibly the most technologically advanced cartridge ever developed, the new Hornady 30 T/C was specifically designed for Thompson Center’s new Icon bolt-action rifle. Built on the premise of optimal ballistics, Hornady has perfected the balance between case volume, bore volume and burn rates for both the 150 and 165 grain offerings. The 30 T/C is slightly smaller in capacity than the 308 Winchester, but delivers ballistic performance exceeding the 30-06. With a muzzle velocity of 3000 fps, the 150 grain load outperforms the 308 Win by 180 fps and outperforms the 30-06 by nearly 100 fps. The 30 T/C provides a 15 percent reduction in perceived recoil, ultra smooth feeding, full magazine capacity, a short bolt throw, longer barrel life and delivers full ballistic potential in a short action case. Similar to an ultra high precision race car engine, the 30 T/C delivers astounding performance with cutting edge design, propellants and a close collaboration between firearm and ammunition engineers.

Packaged in boxes of twenty, the item number for the new 30 T/C , 150 gr SST is 81004. The 30 T/C 165 gr SST is item number 81014.

REMINGTON AMMO

Remington's new Wingmaster HD for Hi-Performance Hunting Ammunition  

Remington's Wingmaster HD, the ultimate in high-performance hunting ammunition.
Utilizing Remington’s proprietary composite of tungsten-bronze-iron metal (approved for waterfowl hunting by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service), Wingmaster HD outperforms existing products with distinct and measurable advantages in pattern density and overall multi-range effectiveness.

With “Drop-Dead Better” Performance - Wingmaster HD exhibits the following advantages:

12.0 Grams/CC Pellet Density | The optimal pellet density for an ideal combination of pattern energy and dispersion without sacrificing pellet count at extended ranges – unlike some competitive loads.

Round, Smooth, True-to-Size Pellets | Wingmaster HD pellets are smooth and round, resulting in true flight for dense, efficient patterns with no flyers. Every pellet is consistent in size and shape and equally effective in performance.

Choke Responsiveness | Changing hunting conditions often call for an adjustment in pattern diameter. Wingmaster HD has a hardness rating similar to steel shot resulting in improved choke tube responsiveness – a benefit not previously obtainable with high density shot materials.

Equal Energy in Every Pellet | Because Wingmaster HD pellets are true-to-size and round, individual pellets maintain consistent velocity and energy for deep penetration at long range – better than competitive products of comparable density.

In recent years, non-toxic shotshell ammunition technology has advanced dramatically, forever changing the sport of waterfowl hunting. Remington Premier Hevi-Shot gave hunters the capability to effectively harvest birds with a degree of lethality never before attainable.

Winchester Introduces the Traacker Shotgun Load

Ever try to figure out why you didn't hit the clay? It's pretty difficult to do. That is - until now - with Winchester solving the problem. The company's new Traacker load gives a visual clue as to where the shot missed. How? Inside the wad is a donut-shaped cavity that holds about 1/8 ounce of shot and gives the wad enough mass that it will fly with the shot column for about 40 yards or more. This gives the shooter an immediate clue as to where the shot was in relation to the target. After about 40 or more yards, the wad veers off to the side.

The wad is offered in two colors - bright orange for use in lower light conditions, and black that's good against the sky when it's sunny.

The load is available in 2 3/4-inch 12 gauge # 7 & 8, and is about a dollar a box more than the regular AA loads.

Winchester Unleashes World’s Fastest, Most Powerful Modern Rimfire Cartridge

Coyotes, prairie dogs and other varmints, beware. Winchester® Ammunition has armed small game hunters with the most revolutionary rimfire cartridge in the company’s almost 150-year history – the .17 Winchester Super Magnum.
 
The .17 Win Super Mag offers the downrange performance of a centerfire cartridge at only a fraction of the cost. For the first time in history, hunters can expect pinpoint accuracy and devastating performance from a rimfire cartridge at ranges well past 200 yards.
 
The .17 Win Super Mag will initially be offered in three bullet types: a 20-grain plastic tip in the Varmint HV® (High Velocity) line, 25-grain plastic tip in the Varmint HE® (High Energy) line and a 20-grain jacketed hollow point in the legendary Super-X® line. Each .17 Win Super Mag bullet will far surpass the long-range wind drift and bullet-drop limitations of popular rimfire calibers like .22 Win Mag and .17 HMR, while depositing more than 150 percent more energy than both.
  
.17 Win Super Mag specifications:

Symbol Sub Brand Bullet Weight/Type Muzzle Velocity S17W20 Varmint HV 20-gr Plastic Tip 3,000 fps

S17W25 Varmint HE 25-gr Plastic Tip 2,600 fps X17W20 Super-X 20-gr JHP 3,000 fps
 
Each of the brand-new .17 Win Super Mag symbols will be offered in a 50-round box and 1,000-round case. The ammunition will be available at Winchester dealers by April 2013. For more information on the .17 Win Super Mag, visit Winchester.com in January 2013.
 
With a company heritage dating back to 1866, Winchester Ammunition was there for the taming of the American West, the Allied Forces’ victory in World War II and through the years, millions of fond memories made in the great outdoors and at the range.
 
Known as The American Legend™, Winchester is a global leader in sporting, law enforcement, military and personal defense ammunition production. Winchester continues to raise the bar with innovative products like Blind Side® waterfowl and PDX1® Defender™ personal defense ammunition.

Winchester Introduces Blind Side Waterfowl Ammunition - Stacked Fast & Deadly

Winchester® Ammunition has introduced one of the most innovative shotshell loads in the brand’s 144-year history. The new Blind Side™ ammunition combines ground-breaking, stacked HEX™Shot technology and the new Diamond Cut Wad in the most deadly Winchester waterfowl load available. Loaded with 100 percent HEX™ Shot, you get more pellets on target, a larger kill zone and more trauma inducing pellets than ever before, meaning quick kill shots.

“This is a superior duck and goose load that we’ve spent a tremendous amount of time designing and perfecting”, said Brett Flaugher, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Winchester Ammunition. “As the industry leader in innovative new products, this product is without question, a quality product that waterfowl hunters can shoot with confidence.” 

Key Features of Blind Side™ Ammunition
· High Packing Density
With the unique shape of HEX™ Shot, Winchester can literally pack the shot into the wad shot cup more efficiently to give the hunter up to 15 percent more shot pellets per shell.

· Hex™ Steel Shot
Six-sided, multiple-edged shot provides increased trauma and wound channels, resulting in fast kills and 250 percent more trauma. The shot is designed to hit waterfowl like high-velocity tumbling bricks—preventing over penetration and maximizing energy deposit and knock-down shock within the bird.

· Diamond Cut Wad
The Blind Side Diamond Cut Wad is designed to maximize pattern performance of Hex Shot, resulting in consistent patterns that increase the kill zone up to 25 percent. Blind Side™ HEX™ Shot and the Diamond Cut Wad system is also choke responsive, providing consistent patterns through improved cylinder, modified or full choke systems.

Drylok Super Steel® System
Important to duck hunters is keeping your powder dry. This system seals out water and moisture and is corrosion resistant for improved patterning and consistent velocities.

Winchester Ammunition Awarded U.S. Army Contract

The United States Department of Defense recently announced that Winchester® Ammunition has been awarded a $43.4 million award from the U.S. Army for .50 caliber SLAP ammunition. “Winchester has a proud tradition of providing dependable ammunition to our military and law enforcement agencies,” said Dick Hammett, president of Winchester Ammunition. “We are truly honored that the U.S. Army has selected Winchester ammunition to use in its mission of protecting and defending the United States.”

SLAP stands for Saboted Light Armor Penetrator and is designed to defeat lightly armored targets. The .50 caliber SLAP ammunition was first used in 1990 during Operation Desert Storm. It uses a reduced caliber, heavy metal (tungsten) .30 inch diameter penetrator wrapped in a "plastic" sabot of .50 inch diameter, which is much lighter in weight than normal ball .50 caliber ammunition. The velocity of SLAP ammunition can also be increased in an original M2 Machine Gun to construct a very fast round with a flat trajectory to enhance impact on the target.

According to U.S. Rep. Jerry Costello, D-Ill., “half of the work will be done at the company’s plant in East Alton, Ill.” The contract is to be completed by 2016.

The Original Winchester Name is Back

The Morgan, Utah based makers of Winchester rifles and shotguns have announced the historic return to the original name given the brand nearly 150 years ago. In 1866 Oliver Winchester named his company - and the brand of rifles he was selling - Winchester Repeating Arms. Going forward all Winchester branded sporting firearms will fall under the Winchester Repeating Arms banner.

In the mid 20th century the usage was often shortened to just "Winchester." In recent years reference to Winchester firearms fell under the umbrella brand of Winchester Rifles and Shotguns. Today, with the launching of the new Model 70 and the entry of the new Speed Pump shotgun, it is fitting for the company to return to its roots.

DELTA WATERFOWL

Delta Waterfowl Is The Duck Hunters Organization and continues to evolve to serve the needs of ducks and duck hunters across North America. President Frank Rohwer lays out organization’s strategic plan in the Spring Issue of Delta Waterfowl magazine.

Duck Hunters Today: Creating and Safeguarding Opportunities
Area closures, access issues and regulations all impact hunters — in many instances, they stop hunters from enjoying time afield. Study after study has documented that quality access is the No. 1 issue for hunting participation. Yet rarely a week goes by when we don’t hear from our members and volunteers about a proposed restriction on access.

Delta Waterfowl is the voice of duck hunters in North America. Delta Waterfowl partners with hunters in communities across the United States and Canada to maintain access, often when local hunters had no other group in their corner. And Delta has been a leader on a host of issues ranging from scaup harvest regulations in the United States to eliminating the gun registry in Canada.

Delta is resolve in its unflinching commitment to fight on every level — federal, state, provincial or local — in partnership with our chapters and members on any issue that threatens duck hunters today.

Duck Hunters Tomorrow: Recruiting Hunters
All of us want to see waterfowl hunting carry on for generations. Yet, with declining rates of hunting recruitment and participation, the long-term future for duck hunting is in question.

In 2001, Delta launched a mentored hunting program that morphed into today’s First Hunt program. First Hunt has become the largest waterfowl specific hunter recruitment program in North America. Delta’s program vision coupled with the dedication and hard work of our volunteer committees across the United States and Canada, ensures the next generation of duck hunters get a proper introduction to the duck blind. First Hunt participants are mentored by local volunteers, mentors who are passionate about duck hunting. The program provides skills, techniques, equipment, and access to opportunities to hunt ducks and geese.

By instilling and sharing the knowledge and traditions of waterfowling with thousands of people annually through grassroots recruitment efforts, Delta strives to ensure a bright future for duck hunters tomorrow.

Delta’s Plan is Your Plan
Delta Waterfowl’s new strategic plan is built upon our historic organizational strengths, but organized around the key needs of duck hunters. This work, coupled with our legendary capacity as a research organization, ensures Delta’s mission and programs are built around the right efforts to address the most pressing needs of ducks and duck hunters.

“We are charting a course based on these very real needs and these program solutions,” Rohwer said. “With a clear, well-articulated plan, Delta’s success in securing the future of ducks and duck hunting is a lofty, but attainable goal. Hunter support is a critical to Delta Waterfowl. As The Duck Hunters Organization, we are on a path to ensure the betterment of ducks and duck hunting, both today and well into the future.”

Delta Waterfowl Foundation is a leading North American waterfowl conservation organization, tracing its origins to the birth of the wildlife conservation movement in 1911. Visit www.deltawaterfowl.org.

DUCKS UNLIMITED LTD (DU)

DU celebrates more than 5 million acres conserved in the United States

Ducks Unlimited is proud to announce the successful conservation of more than 5 million acres of vital waterfowl habitat in the United States. It’s a conservation milestone 30 years in the making.

In 1984, Ducks Unlimited launched its U.S. habitat program, which was a logical extension of DU's longstanding mission to conserve and enhance North America’s most important wetlands to waterfowl. Thanks to decades of abiding by that single mission, Ducks Unlimited is now the world’s largest and most effective private, nonprofit waterfowl and wetlands conservation organization. DU is able to deliver its work through partnerships with private individuals, landowners, agencies, scientific communities and other entities.

“Ducks Unlimited’s mission of wetlands conservation continues to be driven by science to deliver the best possible outcomes for waterfowl in the highest priority landscapes,” said DU Chief Conservation Officer Paul Schmidt. “Our team is proud of what we have accomplished and we look forward to conserving the next 5 million acres as efficiently and effectively as the last.”

Conserved acres are habitat Ducks Unlimited, with its thousands of partners, has protected, restored, enhanced or managed for waterfowl. DU considers habitat conserved if it is under an agreement that lasts at least 10 years or is owned by a public agency that assures its long-term dedication to wildlife.

DU restores or enhances habitat using direct management practices such as improving water control and hydrology or establishing native vegetation. Although DU often protects and restores or enhances the same land multiple times, those acres are only counted once.

Continentally, more than 13 million acres have been conserved in the United States, Canada and Mexico, thanks to the contributions of Ducks Unlimited’s millions of supporters.

For more information on DU's work, visit www.ducks.org. Connect on Facebook www.facebook.com/DucksUnlimited, www.twitter.com/DucksUnlimited and watch DU videos at www.youtube.com/DucksUnlimitedInc.

FIRST LITE

Backcountry Hunters & Anglers Teams with First Lite to Fund Hunting's Future

Via an innovative new initiative that lets sportsmen designate the beneficiary of their conservation donations, First Lite is raising awareness of groups such as Backcountry Hunters & Anglers all while making supporting conservation as easy as ordering outdoor gear.

First Lite's "Round up for Conservation" program gives its customers the option not just of making donations to conservation via gear purchases but of selecting the recipient from a menu of national sportsmen's groups that share First Lite's commitment to sustaining and enhancing the lands, waters and outdoor opportunities enjoyed by American sportsmen.

The desire "to do more" drove the decision by First Lite founders and owners Kenton Carruth and Scott Robinson to launch the initiative, which they hope will provide a blueprint for other gear manufacturers whose business depends on the responsible management of public lands and waters. "Part of the First Lite lifestyle is enjoying the outdoors and spending time in the immense public lands that surround Ketchum, Idaho," where the company is based, said Robinson. "Through this simple platform, we hope to establish the link between purchasing gear and making a donation towards protecting, preserving and improving the places and resources we love."

Outdoor recreation is a significant contributor to the U.S. economy, annually generating $646 billion in consumer spending and 6.1 million jobs. Particularly in the American West, this economic engine is inextricably tied to public lands and waters, with close to three-quarters of Western sportsmen depending on public lands for access to hunting.

"Historically, American sportsmen have led the way in funding conservation," said BHA Executive Director Land Tawney. "In the 1880s, Theodore Roosevelt and his compadres established the Boone & Crockett Club, spurring a conservation ethic that is an essential part of the American fabric. And by buying hunting and fishing licenses and paying excise taxes on purchases such as firearms, ammo and tackle, sportsmen and women continually put their money where their mouth is.

Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is the sportsmen's voice for our wild public lands, waters and wildlife

MULE DEER FOUNDATION

The Mule Deer Foundation (MDF), in partnership with eleven different state wildlife agencies, the Jicarilla Tribe and the San Carlos Apache Tribe, sold big game hunting tags to raise funds for the management of mule deer, black-tailed deer, elk, bison, antelope, turkey and other game species. Over 93% of the money goes back to the state wildlife agencies for management programs or is spent directly on habitat projects.

Its goals center on restoring, improving and protecting mule deer habitat, which result in self-sustaining, healthy, free-ranging, and huntable mule deer populations. MDF achieves its goals through partnering with state and federal wildlife agencies, conservation groups, businesses and individuals to fund and implement habitat enhancement projects on both public and private lands.

Recently MDF has created M.U.L.E.Y. -- to act as a gateway program to inspire, instruct, and introduce youth to the shooting sports and conservation ensuring their continued growth. The name stands for Mindful - What it is to be mindful of, and show respect towards wildlife. Understanding - A proper understanding of the relationship between the sports of shooting/hunting and wildlife awareness/conservation. Legal - The legal use of shooting equipment including rifles, shotguns, handguns, bows, etc. and Ethical Youth - What it means to be an ethical hunter.

LEICA BINOCULARS

Leica's Aquadura Hydrophobic Coating Provides Significant Performance Enhancement In Any Weather

Leica's AquaDura hydrophobic lens coating meets the high demands of hunters, birdwatchers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world. This new coating, currently available on the new Ultravid HD binoculars and the coming new Televid 82 mm and 65 mm spotting scopes, provides significant performance enhancement in adverse weather conditions.

The AquaDura˙lens coating allows water to run off of external lens surfaces. The coating keeps lenses cleaner as dust, dirt and oily fingerprint residues will no longer adhere to the lens surfaces. This new coating will prove ultra-useful in the field as it will allow the user to spend more time viewing the subject and less time wiping off and cleaning the optical lenses.

For over 158 years Leica has led the industry in producing the most innovative, highest performing optical instruments in the world. This tradition continues with the introduction of the new Ultravid HD binoculars and Televid spotting scopes with the AquaDura˙ coating.

Headquartered in Germany, Leica has been an acknowledged leader in the optics industry for over 150 years. Throughout that time, the company has built a solid reputation for producing high quality, durable products due to their commitment to optical perfection and mechanical precision.

Leica Began Manufacturing Binoculars Over 100 Years Ago

In May 14, 1907 the first binocular designed by Ernst Leitz went into serial production. After three years of research and many different design changes, the 6x18 binocular was ready for production in the Leitz/Leica facility in Wetzlar Germany. Therefore, this year Leica is proud to celebrate its 100th anniversary of binocular production.

Two initial patents, No. 191758 and No. 192762 were dated June 14, 1906 and September 25, 1906 respectively and were the basis for the development of the first Leica binocular. However, after continued research and the desire to improve the design, the Leica engineers decided to design the binocular housing out of a very light weight and durable material called Magnalium (a mixture of Magnesium and Aluminum). The drive for perfection also continued as engineers patented a better protection system for the inside of the binoculars against dust and moisture. The final production of the first binocular was further delayed by a final patent that allowed for a new and innovative mounting of the prisms.

Founded in 1849, Leica's capabilities in producing Legendary Lenses provided the foundation for the long history of precise, high performance sport optics products.   From the initial binocular introduction in 1907, Leica continues to develop innovate cutting edge products that sets today's standards for optical performance and field reliability.

Leica will continue its historical platform of providing the most state-of-the-art, high performance sports optics products available. New innovative products are continuously in the pipeline and will be introduced over the coming years. Headquartered in Germany, Leica has been an acknowledged leader in the optics industry for over 150 years. Throughout that time, the company has built a solid reputation for producing high quality, durable products due to their commitment to optical perfection and mechanical precision.

Leupold Increases Number of Binoculars With Natural Armor Coating

Leupold® has expanded the number of binoculars protected by its most popular armor coating, natural.  Leupold’s Green Ring Cascades, Olympic and Pinnacles series are now available with natural armor coating.

Blending well with most camouflages, the natural armor coating provides protection against the bumps and knocks that occur in the field.  The coating protects the binoculars from the elements and provides a sure grip in all conditions. Available in 8x42mm and 10x42mm models, the Cascades have a roof prism design, and feature multi-coated lenses and phase coated prisms to enhance clarity, color fidelity and contrast while delivering a bright sight picture from dawn to dusk.

The Olympic binocular features aluminum enhanced, phase coated prisms.  Combined with fully multi-coated lenses, the Olympic’s lens system optimizes image brightness, clarity, contrast and color fidelity.  Olympic Series binoculars with natural armor coating are available in 8x42mm, 10x50mm and 12x50mm.

Featuring interchangeable eyecups, the Pinnacles series binoculars have L-coated prisms and silver enhanced, phase coated prisms to reduce glare.  The binoculars are available in 8x42mm, 10x50mm and 12x50mm models with natural armor coating.

Leupold Golden Ring Binoculars With Switch/Power Technology

Golden Ring® roof prism binoculars with Leupold’s® exclusive Switch/Power Technology allows hunters to make instant transitions between magnification levels while keeping game centered in the view, with minimal need to readjust focus.

 “With Switch/Power Technology, hunters will be able to change from 7x to 12x or from 10x to 12x with the flip of a switch,” said Mike Slack, marketing communications manager for Leupold.  “When zoom binoculars move up in magnification, the visual field narrows and doesn’t remain in focus – this can cause the hunter to lose sight of game.  Switch/Power Technology allows users to experience a full, immediate power setting transition without having to lower the binocular.  No other binocular has this capability.”

With Switch/Power Technology, users can go from power settings of 7x to 12x or from 10x to 17x, depending on model.  Regardless of magnification, the object being viewed remains in the center of the visual field between transitions.  Other multi-magnification binoculars can be very large and heavy, or require changing each eyepiece individually.  The 7/12x32mm and 10/17x42mm Golden Ring binoculars with Switch/Power Technology are 5 and 6 inches in length and weigh only 21.4 and 23.9 ounces, respectively.

To ensure the highest image quality, the binoculars feature multicoated lenses for superb brightness, resolution, contrast and color fidelity.  The binoculars have phase coated roof prism and L-coat enhanced auxiliary prisms that give hunters a sharp, distinct image.

Available in both 7/12x32mm and 10/17x42mm models, the binoculars come with  contoured, side-flared eyecups for normal use as well as flat, padded eyecups for use with eyeglasses.  Rugged and waterproof, the binoculars are covered by Leupold’s Full Lifetime Guarantee.

For more information on the Leupold Golden Ring binoculars with Switch/Power Technology or to locate a local Leupold dealer, contact Leupold & Stevens, Inc., P.O. Box 688, Beaverton, OR 97075-0688; (800) LEUPOLD; or check web site www.leupold.com.

STEINER BINOCULARS

Steiner's New Predator Xtreme Roof-Prism Binoculars

Continuing to produce state-of-the-art optical innovations that outperform its competition, Steiner introduces the new Predator Xtreme roof-prism binoculars, which offer a special proprietary lens coating that filters light and adds contrast at the peak sensitivity range of the human eye. Steiner has been perfecting its high-contrast lens coating for many years and the innovative Dynamic Coating Technology available on the new Predator Xtreme represents the sixth generation of the company‚s exclusive contrast-enhancing optics.

Steiner's Predator Xtreme binoculars overcome the challenges associated with high-contrast coatings, which previously resulted in decreased brightness, reduced light transmission or altered colors. The Dynamic Coating Technology filters out a small amount of light in the middle of the visible color spectrum, making your eyes more perceptive to certain colors, especially in low-light conditions. The increased perception occurs because the human eye reacts differently to different color wavelengths. The end result is that browns, reds and other wildlife colors found on most game animals pop out against green backgrounds.

A new ergonomic design employs a rigid polycarbonate chassis that is extremely durable and waterproof. The binoculars are positively pressure-purged to 14 psi with dry nitrogen and argon gases for absolutely leakage-free performance in all weather conditions.

The Predator Xtreme lineup features 8x22, 8x42, 10x26 and 10x42 models. Each binocular comes equipped with a padded travel case, removable neoprene rain-guards for the ocular lenses and objective lens caps. A padded neck strap is included with the 42mm models for comfortable carrying and viewing at all times.

Available at retailers nationwide, the suggested retail price for the new roof-prism Predator Xtremes are 8x22- $179; 8x42 - $399; 10x26 - $199 and 10x42 - $499.

BOOKS

New Book from Gun Digest Highlights Legendary Gunsmith P.O. Ackley by Fred Zeglin

A new book from Gun Digest Media, P.O. Ackley: America's Gunsmith by noted author and gunsmith Fred Zeglin, takes the most comprehensive look ever into the life and work of P.O. Ackley, the eminent gunsmith, barrel maker and cartridge developer. The book isavailable exclusively at www.gundigeststore.com.

In P.O. Ackley: America's Gunsmith, Zeglin's extensive research highlights not just the history of cartridge and rifle development, but a never-before-seen look at a humble man who influenced nearly everything we know about shooting and ballistics today. Ackley's ideas on reloading, rifle accuracy, safety, cartridge choice, and wildcat use are just as relevant for modern "gun cranks" as they were in Ackley's heyday.

Most shooters today know P.O. Ackley because of his "Ackley Improved" cartridge designs. But those cartridges are only the tip of the iceberg. Zeglin uses this work to share the most complete collection of accurate dimensions, loading data and history for the lifetime of cartridges created by Ackley, the most influential gunsmith in American history.

This hardcover, 256-page study of P.O. Ackley's work is the first in Gun Digest Media's Heritage Series celebrating the iconic guns, designers and manufacturers who shaped today's firearms landscape. The book is illustrated with never-before-seen photos from personal archives of Ackley's friends, family, and associates -- a veritable who's who of giants from the firearms industry who went on to shape the shooting sports as we know it. From the dusty, oil rag-covered machine shops of Ackley's early years, to stunning modern-day firearms chambered in Ackley's timeless wildcats, the full-color center section brings to life this colorful character and his accomplishments in gunsmithing and cartridge development.

P.O. Ackley: America's Gunsmith is available at www.gundigeststore.com or by calling (855) 840-5120 (product number R3744).

BURLESON SPORTING COMPANY

Bug Out Clothing

I, and thousands of others like me, attract every kind of insect on Earth. And they bite, hard, and swell and itch and drive me crazy. But I finally found a solution to this problem - and that is wearing special insect-proof clothing made by Bug Out.

I sampled the head cover, jacket and pants while out hunting and came away without one bite!! In the meantime, some who laughed at the Bug Out clothing placed over my regular street clothes were screaming and running all over the place away from the tiny insects that were chewing on their flesh and making them bleed - while, for a change, it was I who had the last laugh.

The bug repellent clothing is made of 100% polyester and even the no-seeums couldn't get through while I was taking photographs and not being disturbed at all. Best of all, this clothing could be worn over any clothing beneath it; insect repellent could be used without harming the material, and it was used and tested in the military.

The relaxed fit design features extra long sleeves, a three position pull-over hood with draw strings that provide a complete enclosure for your head, ears and neck. Easy to see through and pull back if necessary. The draw string with cord lock allows you to adjust the bottom of the jacket to provide a secure and comfortable fit around your waist. It even comes complete with a pouch pocket for your hands or for storing items. Available in Olive Drab, sizes samll, medium, large, extra-large, and extra extra large.

Premium Bug Out Pants sell for $20.00
The relaxed fit design features an elastic waist band that comfortably fits under the jacket when the draw string is pulled and the cord lock is secured, adding another element of protection. The pants feature elastic ankle cuffs that fit securely around your boots. It comes in the above sizes.

The Jacket:

This unique design provides you with the ultimate in head and neck protection. Just slide your arms through the elastic straps, put the headnet on and you are ready to enjoy the outdoors in comfort. Its compact size makes it great for easy and carefree storage; and since it uses the same original no-see-um mesh with micro fibers you can relax in comfort knowing that Bug-Out is at work guarding you against biting and stinging insects! This is one of the best face masks available!

Size: One Size Fits All
Color: Olive Drab
 
Bug Out Outdoorwear helps guard against biting and stinging insects like no-see-ums, blackflies, mosquitoes, gnats, ticks - even the nymph stage of the deer tick. So whether you are digging in the garden, fishing at the lake, relaxing in the backyard or doing any other activity that requires you to be outdoors; Bug-Out Outdoorwear offers you ultimate in bug protection. Now you can fully enjoy your time outdoors without the use of potentially hazardous, dangerous, game spooking chemicals, sprays or repellents. The Bug Out System keeps biting and stinging insects out and lets air flow in. The relaxed fit design guarantees you will have time to enjoy the outdoors instead of the outdoors enjoying you.

Bug Out Outdoorwear uses a durable, lightweight see-through mesh that is 100% chemical free and is made of a chemical resistant material. This means if you want added protection you can apply deet or permanone to the material and it will not deteriorate the fabric, unlike some competitors' suits. Not only does the material help guard against biting, stinging, and crawling insects, it is proven to even help guard against the nymph stage of the deer tick, a most aggressive biter that causes Lyme Disease.

The Bug Out System has even passed the U.S. Military's extensive testing and approval process. It has been used in Somalia, Africa, Bosnia, Haiti and South America. Bug Out Outdoorwear is the preferred brand of insect protection. The patented design creates a total enclosure that protects you...but still allows for visibility and comfort.

Girls with Guns® Clothing Improves Fall Line of Women’s Hunting Apparel and Accessories

As an answer to the limited selection of technical women’s hunting gear, Girls with Guns (GWG) Clothing has listened to customer feedback and is excited to offer an updated hunting line for female hunters.

The feedback GWG received was crucial to the design phase of the Fall 2016 hunting line. Removing the overtly feminine color accents, improving the fit of the plus-size offerings and adding new accessories and outer layers to the GWG signature layering system were a result of listening to fellow female hunters and over 300 days of field testing.

“Female hunters have been at the mercy of sized-down men’s gear or extra-large youth sizes,” said Jen O’Hara, co-founder of GWG. “Even as women became the fastest growing segment in the outdoors industry, technical hunting manufacturers were slow to embrace their newest customer demographic.” Recognizing the needs of their fellow female hunters, O’Hara and co-founder Norissa Harman debuted their first generation of GWG Huntress technical hunting apparel in 2014.

“Built by women for women, with a fit designed for a woman’s body and the field functionality to rival any men’s brand, the 2016 GWG Huntress collection challenges all female hunters to take their passions to the next level,” said Harman. “Whether it’s a light or mid-weight layering system, an insulated waterfowl set, or a hunt-enhancing outer layer, GWG Huntress has you covered. And, with a price point well below any other women’s brand, you’ll save big without sacrificing quality or warmth.”

Launched in September 2016, GWG’s new partnership with Muck Boots™, featuring 100-percent waterproof, pull-on boots with negative-forty-degree insulation in Mossy Oak® Break-Up Country® with a pop of teal helps Girls with Guns Clothing keep you covered from head to toe.

ROBINSON OUTDOOR PRODUCTS/SCENTBLOCKER®

ScentBlocker 1.5 Performance Shirt Now Available in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country

ScentBlocker®, has announced the introduction of the ScentBlocker 1.5 Performance Shirt offered in Mossy Oak® Break-Up Country™. Because when it comes to lightweight performance, next to nothing means everything.

At its core, the ScentBlocker 1.5 Performance Shirt is made from ultra-lightweight, breathable, technical fabric with 4 Direction Stretch and Microwick™ to keep the wearer cool and dry. It also incorporates an advanced S3® silver antimicrobial treatment to reduce odor-causing bacteria. This keeps garments smelling fresher, longer. But the foundation of this innovative product is ScentBlocker’s revolutionary new synthetic Trinity™ Technology that absorbs human odor like nothing else.

Composed of a patented polymeric resin that took more than 10 years to perfect, Trinity has properties that provide qualities unattainable in other scent-absorption technologies; it’s lighter by volume, exhibits stronger attraction for human/organic odors, and lasts longer over the life of a garment. Testing shows that Trinity even leapfrogged the efficacy benchmark of their own industry-leading Cold Fusion® carbon odor-absorption capacity. And by leveraging ScentBlocker’s proprietary application process, Trinity Technology is fused into the fabric of the garment — in this case, the ScentBlocker 1.5 Performance Shirt in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country.

Mossy Oak Break-Up Country elements are true to nature’s size and provide the perfect amount of depth and shadowing, which make the pattern adaptable to a number of hunting situations and light periods throughout the day. As a component of ScentBlocker’s System Layers, the 1.5 Performance Shirt is classified as Layer 1, meaning it can be worn next to the skin by itself, or as a base layer under other garments.

 About Montana Decoy
Created in 1996 by Jerry McPherson, Montana Decoy got its start from an average hunter trying to improve his bowhunting success. Tormented by an uncooperative bull elk, McPherson returned to his truck, thinking about how he could design a packable decoy without adding bulk and weight. McPherson got inspiration from folding band saw blades. He utilized the same twist-and-fold concept to hold open the decoy image.
Montana Decoy offers turkey, elk, whitetail, mule deer, antelope and predator options along with a Moo Cow confidence decoy. All share the same ease of use, light weight and ultra realistic HD photography.

Montana Decoy Has a New Line of Turkey Decoys

Montana Decoy has introduced a new line of turkey decoys using a new process that gives them a new look. The High Definition (HD) process and two-sided strutting image makes the Mr. T the most realistic decoy on the market as well as provides several set-up options.

No more carrying bulky full body decoys because Mr. T takes up less space than a seat cushion. Turkeys are very visual and no other decoy can compete with Montana Decoy’s HD photography. Decoy assembly is easy, the twist and stake set up is a hallmark of all Montana Decoys and the new Mr. T turkey decoy is no exception.

RedHead Reality Series Decoys: Gobblers fooled by new turkey trio

Turkeys of a wild feather tend to flock together. Wise hunters deploy decoys to bring wary old gobblers into shooting range. While the use of decoys is no new tactic, turkey hunters are constantly on the lookout for ways to make their spread more efficient and effective. That’s why the release of the ultra-realistic RedHead Reality Series Turkey Decoys will have hunters flocking to Bass Pro Shops this spring. 

Each lightweight decoy in this revolutionary line is constructed of flexible and durable Life Rubber—making them 40% lighter than comparable models. Each bird readily perches atop a tough, two-piece, metal folding stake, conjoined by a shock-cord. This cord keeps the stake sections together at all times—when in use and when stored—and reduces the time for decoy set up in the field.

The RedHead Reality Series Decoys also feature ultra-realistic painted heads and incredibly detailed feathers that truly bring the birds to life. They utilize a Life Valve on the decoy’s bottom that aids with easily popping the decoy back into shape if it gets smashed, creased, or dented during transportation and storage. This is a valuable bonus feature when approaching gobblers require rapid decoy deployment.

The first choice for hunters wanting to create their own flock is the new RedHead Reality Series Ol’ Wet Hen Turkey Decoy. Known for dominating the forests and field, this Ol’ Wet Hen Turkey Decoy has the look—and posture—of a real boss hen. For turkey hunters wishing to double the appeal of life-like hens, the Ol’ Wet Hen can be accompanied by another feathered female—the new relaxed Brood Hen Decoy. This decoy is positioned in a receptive breeding posture that every gobbler readily recognizes. The Brood Hen Decoy can be placed directly on the ground for a more submissive setup, or can be paired with a stake for increased visibility.

Hunters wanting to present a bigger—and more antagonizing—wild turkey flock can incorporate the new RedHead Reality Series J-Bird Turkey Decoy. This jake decoy, shaped in the popular 1⁄4 strut posture of a young, cocky jake, relaxes hens but infuriates gobblers. This true-to-life jake is complete with a snood and multi-strand beard protruding from the chest. Seeing this J-Bird could be the last straw for a strutting gobbler who may otherwise hang-up out of range.

There’s even better news for undecided hunters who are looking for a bargain. The new decoys are offered in a RedHead Reality Series Trigger Turkey Decoy 3-Pack containing the Brood Hen, J-Bird and Ol' Wet Hen. Another option is the RedHead Reality Series Breeding Pair Turkey Decoy Combo—a package that pairs up the J-Bird and the Brood Hen to present a breeding pair. Retail prices range from $49.99 for a lone hen decoy to $139.99 for the three bird flock.

FOOD - For Animals & Humans

Food For Animals

Terminal Attraction - Hunting Plot Basics by Todd Amenrud

If you manage your property for whitetails you probably plant some of your food plot acreage right now, during the late summer or fall. Much of what will be planted during this time are crops that are meant for attraction. Some of the plants also have great nutritional value as well, but most hunters really don't think about that, they want a plot that will give them harvest opportunities. For this type of "hunting plot," plant selection, plot design and timing are very important determinants for success.

Deciding "what to plant" and "plot design" go hand in hand. In my view, variety is a noteworthy key when designing a hunting plot. Because of all of the changes happening in the whitetails' world during the fall, you should never "put all of your eggs in one basket."
With a "hunting plot" the goal is to draw them in so you can kill them, or to use it as a magnet so they can be intercepted on the way to the plot. In these plots it's best to "leave the table set" for them throughout the season. If you just plant one thing you are limiting the attraction timeframe to only when that specific crop is at its peak. With more choices, more plants will peak at different times.

I like to plant in sections, or better yet, strips. Obviously plot design, shape and size has everything to do with which (strip or section), but if the situation allows, I like to plant strips as wide as my sprayer's swath. This way it's easy to treat Roundup Ready crops or spray selective herbicides. I may divide a plot into two, to as many as six sections, depending upon how large the plot is. You must have adequate acreage to do this "variety tactic" justice. For instance if you have only a 1⁄4 acre plot you're probably better off planting just one blend. Otherwise, there's not going to be enough of any one cultivar to keep them coming back. When a plant turns attractive they'll wipe you out too soon.

Depending upon where you are in the country, some of my "hunting plot" choices are spring planted items - for instance; if I have enough acreage, corn will be on the menu (or a corn-soybean blend). I might also add some annual legumes like soybeans or iron & clay peas. During the late summer planting season, three of the main plant types I will choose will be brassicas, perennial legumes and cereal grains. With these four types of plantings (a perennial with clovers and chicory, corn, several varieties of brassicas and a blend of cereal grains) there will be a plant type that will keep them coming to the site from before bow season starts until the season ends or the plot runs out of food. These four choices are simple and easy to plant. I may plant a number of other crops, but these are definitely the mainstays to a good hunting plot.

Day in and day out clovers can be very attractive to whitetails and at certain times chicory is one of the best magnets I've ever seen. Clover Plus is the blend I will typically choose for this job because the New Zealand clovers are more attractive and produce more leaf matter then our US clovers do. Here in the south, Premium Perennial or Perfect Plot may be a better choice because of the flush of annual brassicas for the fall hunting season. The following year I may over-seed to fill in the spots vacated by the brassicas with straight Clover Plus.

With the corn and soybeans we have another angle covered. The carbohydrates that the corn produces will attract when cold temperatures arrive and depending upon what time of the season it is they will consume the soybean leaves early and the dried beans during late season.

Brassicas are, in my view, the best deer food God has ever created. They are a great choice for when cold temperatures convert the plant's high levels of starch to sugar - when that happens - look out! I have not seen a better late season draw.

Whitetails will react differently to brassicas in various areas and habitat types. Some brassicas may be better off for a wintertime food source in a "nutrition plot" than a source of attraction for hunting time. Test different brassicas and see for yourself. Deer Radish and Winter Bulbs & Sugar Beets are my favorite crops for hunting time attraction.

Lastly, Outfitter's Blend, Last Bite, Trophy Oats, or a blend with a high ratio of cereal grains is the final piece of the puzzle. The energy that plants like oats, wheat or triticale produce will be desired by both bucks and does during the fall. Timing your planting is important with these plants since most cereal grains are generally palatable during their first 45 to 60 days of growth. You want to plant them so that are at the peak of their attractiveness when you want to hunt the site.

The variety of crops is also important because of the wide range of conditions your herd will face. During early season as an example, they may be eating your perennials heavy, but then a twenty degree temperature drop occurs and they change to your cereal grains. It's best to be prepared - if you have adequate acreage to devote you should have a plant available that covers their needs regardless of the time or the conditions.

I'm not saying that you are going to sit on the edge of your hunting plot and knock over a trophy buck standing in it. You may need to set up an ambush to try and intercept him on his way to the plot several hundred yards off. However, if you do things right and don't put pressure on the spot, you can harvest Pope & Young size whitetails right in your plot. Regardless of where you set up for the ambush, your hunting plot and the crops you have chosen are the reasons he's traveling to the area.

Six Tips for Drought Proofing Your Food Plots

Despite the ample rain we've seen through much of the country, there are parts of the whitetails' range that are under a drought right now. Normally a manager shouldn't bet 100% on a drought, but they should hedge their bet and follow these steps. It can mean the difference between having some food, or a complete withered failure. 
 
 1) Select the right location. You can't just select any open spot and expect success.  As an example, if you choose a spot that has beach-sand for soil you shouldn't expect much. First and foremost, the site needs to be able to sustain your selected crop.
 
2) Time your planting properly. While we definitely have predetermined windows for when specific crops should be planted, one should be adaptable and open to planting when there is ample moisture to germinate the seed and get the new seedling off to a good start. Obviously if you're an absentee landowner you may have a prearranged date on which you have to plant, but if you have the flexibility you should wait until just before a rain event to ensure adequate soil moisture will be present.
 
3) Soil preparation may be the most important detail. These ideas will help to make more moisture available to your plant's roots. A) If soil moisture is limited or dry times are expected it's best to reduce the amount of times you turn the soil. Every time you work the soil valuable moisture is lost.  Frequent disking dries out the soil and leaves less moisture available for seed germination. B) A tiller requires fewer passes to achieve the same results as a disk. They can create a suitable seedbed with a single pass where a disk would require numerous passes to achieve the same results. C) If you have a hard-pan, removing the hard-pan by sub-soiling periodically allows the plant's roots to penetrate deeper so they're able to access moisture that would otherwise be unavailable if a hard-pan is present. During dry conditions the presence of a hard pan causes the topsoil to dry out more quickly. Deeper roots result in increased drought tolerance.
 
4) Eliminate weed competition. Unwanted competition will steal valuable moisture from your crop. Controlling competition with the correct herbicide is vital if you wish success during dry spells. Once your crop becomes established it will often shade out the competition which also helps to conserve topsoil moisture.
 
5) Balance your herd density with the available food. The higher your density, the more browse pressure negatively affects your plants. If your food plots are being browsed heavily due to a high deer density, the crop will be stressed. The more stress the plants receive, the closer you draw to a complete catastrophe. Combine heavy browse pressure with a drought and you have a recipe for failure.
 
6) Choose what to plant carefully. Selecting the right crops should depend more upon your overall management goals than whether or not they will survive a drought. However, a drought can negatively impact your food plot success, thus upsetting these management goals, so hedging your bet with some drought tolerant food plot plantings can be the difference between having
some forage for your herd or a complete dried-up disappointment.

Want to Attract more Gamebirds this Year? by Austin Delano

Early June is a great time of year to think about getting some food planted for turkeys, quail, or other birds you plan to hunt. WhistleBack is a warm season blend of sorghum, three varieties of millets, Egyptian wheat, and sunflowers. This mix is designed to produce massive amounts of seed and at the same time offer cover for many species of upland birds. WhistleBack contains varieties that all grow and mature at different heights offering food to birds as small as quail and doves on up to pheasants or turkeys. Our modern day food plot planting practices are not very conducive to feeding quail, turkeys, etc; we plant every available open piece of ground for our deer and figure the birds will be fine. It doesn't take a large area to feed a lot of birds and designating a third or a quarter acre section out of some of your deer plots for a strip or perimeter of WhistleBack will go a long way in feeding your game birds.

The plant varieties in WhistleBack will mature around 90 days and once the seed heads mature and dry up they will begin to naturally drop seeds providing feed for your birds through the fall and winter. This blend also makes a very good bedding area for deer when planted in larger plots and it can also be used for a buffer or a transitional zone between the woods or bedding areas and your other food plots.
 
The seeds in WhistleBack are all fairly small and ground preparation should be as follows. No-Till drills work great for this blend, most drills have a setting for planting millet or sorghums. If using traditional planting methods, I would suggest spraying the area to be planted a week to ten days ahead of planting with a non-selective herbicide, such as glyphosate, to kill all existing vegetation. Ground to be planted can then be disked or tilled and then cultipacked to create a firm seed bed. WhistleBack can then be broadcast and lightly dragged or cultipack again to incorporate seed ? to ? inch into the soil. 
 
WhistleBack can use about 250 lbs of 13-13-13 per acre, or an equivalent. All the seed varieties in this blend are nitrogen lovers and it would benefit growth and seed production to implement a secondary nitrogen application 4-6 weeks after germination, much like you would corn. Do your part this year and designate some ground for feeding your game birds.

Tips for Understanding Your Soil Sample by Austin Delano

Fertilizer and lime recommendations can be confusing. All the different numbers and suggestions can really make it difficult to understand what your soil and crop needs to perform its best. Let's simplify things with a few quick tips to understanding your soil sample.

1.      Soil pH is the first thing you need to get right. Although some crops are more tolerant of acidic soils than others, your plot will perform best with a pH of 6.5-7.0. Lime is relatively inexpensive and is the key to successful plots. For perspective a plot with a pH of 5.5 is 100 times more acidic than one at 6.5. Over 50% of fertilizer added to a plot with a 5.5 pH is wasted because it is not able to be used by the plants. One to two tons per acre of ag lime is very common to get your plots where they need to be.
 
2.      Remember that the 3 numbers on bagged fertilizer (N-P-K) are based off of 100 lbs, not 50. In a 50 lb bag of 13-13-13, there are 6.5 lbs or units each of actual nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. If your sample says you need 40 lbs each of N-P-K, you would need 350 lbs per acre of 13-13-13. This would give you 45.5 lbs of N-P-K.
 
3.      An advanced soil test is needed to get current levels of micro nutrients like copper, iron, zinc, boron, etc. These micros are usually not present in bagged fertilizer. Although they are needed in very small amounts in comparison to the macro's (N-P-K), it can be worthwhile to do an advanced sample every 3-4 years and keep the micro's up to date.
 
4.      As a general rule of thumb, cereal grains, corn, and brassicas are nitrogen lovers. Legumes such as clovers, peas, beans, or alfalfa fix their own nitrogen from the atmosphere and need very little at planting time. For example, once established, clover can be fertilized with a common 0-20-20. At planting time, a low nitrogen blend like 5-20-20 can be used to give the young clover a small dose of nitrogen while it develops a root system and begins to affix its own from the air. On the other end of the spectrum, corn can use 100-200 lbs of nitrogen per acre for maximum yield.
 
Keep in mind if your soil sample comes back with a pretty acidic reading like 4.5-5.5 that your plot is not a lost cause. A couple of tons of lime to the acre can really change how successful your food plot plantings are. Lime is relatively cheap but is often the most overlooked tool to growing good crops for your wildlife. Continuing to spread fertilizer on highly acidic soils can be counterproductive and frankly somewhat a waste of good money. I would much rather see a guy with pH levels below 6.0 spend some of his food plot budget on lime rather than fertilizer.
 
The time it takes for the lime to begin to breakdown and start to neutralize the acidity on your soil can be dependent on several factors. One of these is how fine the lime has been screened at the quarry. Lime that is screened through a very fine mesh screen is more of a powder consistency and will begin to breakdown in the soil quicker than a more coarse lime screened through a larger screen. Once you have added lime to a plot according to a soil test, it could be 2-5 years before you need to spread more. The amount of time in between applications can vary with different soil types, rainfall amounts, and other factors. Obviously soils that are very sandy will typically leach lime and other nutrients quicker through the root zone than heavier soils with a higher clay content.

Be sure to contact your local farm supply or co-op to spread your lime for you. If your plots are accessible with larger equipment, they can spread the lime for you very efficiently. Another option is to have the lime delivered and dumped on your property and spread yourself. Lime and fertilizer spreaders can often be rented from your local co-op or extension service very reasonably if you have a means of loading it yourself.

UPTIME

UPTIME’s Streamlined Energy Formula Fuels Greatness

It can strike as an afternoon slump at the office, pre-workout motivation drain, or the day after effects of an all-nighter. Energy depletion is a chronic problem in today’s fast paced world where e-mails never stop flooding in, but social lives, relationships, gym sessions, and down time still need to be packed into the day. Rather than reaching for a coffee, soda or synthetic energy drink that will only provide a short-lived jumpstart, there is a beverage being reintroduced called UPTIME that only contains carefully selected, premium ingredients for balanced energy.  

UPTIME is formulated to provide an invigorating combination of ingredients to boost energy, increase production, and sharpen mental clarity and focus. One of the most non-invasive energy drinks on the market, UPTIME contains a mere 484mg of active ingredients. Other major energy drink brands have anywhere from 1600mg to over 7000mg of active ingredients.

UPTIME’s streamlined ingredients help avoid sudden energy bursts, shakes, jitters, and crashes that can be brought on by other beverages. UPTIME provides a balanced energy boost with 142mg of caffeine, about the same amount as a cup of coffee, as well as powerful nutrients such as calcium, Vitamin C and potassium to help support overall health and other natural ingredients including Ginseng, gingko biloba and coenzyme Q10.

Available sweetened with cane sugar or sugar-free, UPTIME blends together the clean tasting citrus flavors of lemon, lime and orange and has light carbonation. The clear beverage is packaged in a sleek, single-serve, 12-ounce aluminum bottle with a re-sealable twist cap.

UPTIME beverages are available at retailers throughout Southern California including convenient stores, natural food and health stores. UPTIME will be available in more locations nationwide later this year. For more information and online ordering, visit www.uptime.energy.

FURNITURE

CHAHEATI

Chaheati Heated All-Season Chair

I tried the new Chaheati Heated Chair and found that it not only works during cold weather when you may be out in the field, but in any season, especially since it helped my backache! And for sitting while waiting for your turn to shoot clays, it can't be beat!

Similar to many of the lightweight, collapsible canvas chairs owned by milions nationwide, what sets the Chaheati apart is the cordless carbon fiber non-wire heating elements throughout the chair. The patent pending technlogy of the Chaheati offers four temperature settings ranging from 98 up to 145F and rapidly heats up in less than 20 seconds. Ideal for use in a variety of settings, including camping, tailgating, hunting, cool weather sporting events and practices, and more.

The Chaheati's safe low-voltage heating technology sports digital circuit protection. The high efficiency, lithium-in rechargeable battery provides up to six hours of heat per charge and lasts for over 500 uses. The warmth of the soft, flexible ultra-thin heating element in the chair can eve help relieve light and aching muscles and joints. Chaheati's heating system is optimally positioned to produce a comfortable even heat across the entire back, buttocks and the back of the thighs.

It is a sturdy chair desiged for comfort and durability. The fabric is rugged and comfortable and is desiged to be fire and water-resistant. The seat is oversized and can accommodate any body type up to 280 lbs. Its dimensions are 23.6" wide x 23.6" deep x 36.21 high. An AC car adapter charger is sold separately.

The inventor of the Chaheati is Kyle Smith with his wife ReAnna. Kyle notes that the idea for the Chaheati came about "On a cold night in front of a bonfire when we were all warm and toasty on the front of our bodies and a block of ice on our backsides. I was watching my frustraed wife repeatedly sit, stand and turn like a turkey on a rotisserie to warm up. I thought she needed a heated chair. After researching the market and not finding one, we decided to create one -- and the Chaheati is the result."

I can truthfully say that after trying and using this chair repeatedly, I've often used it indoors for the help it does for my aching back!

Available for $89.99 on-line or from the company at web site /www.chaheati.com/store/

Hunter's Specialties Brings Four New Digital Electronic Callers To The Johnny Stewart Line

Johnny Stewart® Wildlife Calls has set the industry standard for nearly 50 years,
building rugged dependable game callers that use the original high quality Johnny
Stewart sounds. Now four new electronic callers are available that feature leading
edge technology to help hunters, whether novice or expert, be more successful in
the field.

The four models include the Jury, Bloodhound, Gallows and Executioner. All four models include a separate remote control. The Bloodhound, Gallows and Executioner
remotes operate on rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The Jury remote runs on a single 12V alkaline battery. The main units have a unibody base and speaker design and are built from a tough impact resistant polymer. The speaker can be rotated to modify sound dispersion for different calling situations. The weather resistant speaker yields clear, accurate and authentic sounds. The base unit operates on 8 AA or 8 C batteries. The callers have a power save mode to extend battery life, yielding 6-8 hours of continuous play. The top three units have USB ports to connect to a computer to enable both new sound downloads and potential firmware updates.

New sounds can be downloaded at www.cdtdigital.com/hunterspec/.The Jury has a USB port to allow for downloading of sounds only. All four models will also play 2 sounds at once for an almost endless mix of calling scenarios.

registers and an LCD display. The base unit also comes with a full set of controls and can be operated without the remote.

The Gallows features a built-in GPS feature with up to 16 recordable waypoints, allowing hunters to mark their favorite calling stands and return to the spots where they had previous success

The top of the line model in the new Johnny Stewart line is the Executioner, which has 100 pre-loaded time-tested Johnny Stewart sounds. The unit has 4GB of internal memory and 32 pre-sets (16 on the remote and 16 on the base unit). The remote has a 300 yard range, 16 quiet soft keys with touch registers and an LCD display.

KOOLA BUCK

Keep Your Elk Harvest Safe With Koola Buck Anti-Microbial XL Game Bags

Koola Buck has expanded its line of popular Anti-Microbial Game Bags with the introduction of the XL Game Bags, sized specifically for elk and similarly sized game quarters. Treated to protect meat by reducing bacteria eight times more than standard game bags, the new Anti-Microbial XL Game Bags are packable, lightweight and very durable.

Each of the four cotton/poly-blend stretch-fitting quarter bags are permeated in a proprietary blend of all-natural flavorless acids and bacterial inhibitors to protect the harvest from spoilage without changing the natural flavor of the meat. The Game Bags also protect the meat from insects and their eggs. Bacteria grow most rapidly in the range of temperatures above 40 ° to about 140 °F, doubling in number in as little as 20 minutes. This range is known as the "Danger Zone” and why it is advised that one not leave food uncovered and unrefrigerated for over 2 hours. Because hunters generally process animals—particularly elk and other large game—in less than sanitary conditions and often in temperatures above 40 degrees, the Koola Buck Anti-Microbial Game Bags are an extremely important means to ensure the safety and quality of the meat that you harvest and process. By putting them in these special bags the growth of surface bacteria is significantly slowed, providing additional time to get the harvest to proper refrigeration.

The new Koola Buck Anti-Microbial XL Game Bags are available in a vacuum-sealed, bacteria-free four-pack at <http://www.koolabuck.com>www.koolabuck.com and at select dealers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $34.95. To find a dealer near you visit www:koolabuck.com/dealers.com/

Headquartered in Brookville, Pa., Koola Buck is a leading designer and manufacturer of portable refrigeration systems, meat hooks, anti-microbial game bags and game-processing videos.

Signature Products Group (SPG) Introduces the All New Browning Billy 1700RT Lumbar Hunting Pack

Signature Products Group (SPG) has introduced the Browning Billy 1700RT Lumbar Hunting Pack, which will be available in stores this summer. This lumbar pack boasts 1700 cubic inches of storage space, handles heavy loads with ease, and weighs merely 2.5 pounds.

Staying true to Browning's mantra, "The Best There Is," SPG has completely redesigned the Browning hunting pack line, incorporating innovations such as Hypo-Sonic™ and Mountain Crawler™ systems made specifically to enhance stealth and endurance on any hunt. Gone are the days of bulky, heavy packs that weigh more than all the rest of your gear...this ain't your daddy's hunting pack.

The Billy 1700RT features a revolutionary Baumshell™ fabric as well as the industry-first Hypo-Sonic™ closure in place of a traditional noisy zipper. Woven Baumshell™ fabric is roughly twice the strength and half the weight of traditional knitted pack fabrics. Additionally, it is "whisper quiet" for state of the art sound suppression. Baumshell™ fabric is water resistant and the pack is constructed with reinforced stitching for years of hunting.

The Hypo-Sonic™ closure is located on the waist belt storage pocket. This innovative toothless zipper is water resistant and virtually silent due to its unique materials and welding methods. It is perfect for quietly accessing vital gear like game calls and rangefinders in the final phases of the hunt when silence is critical.

For long days in the field, the Billy 1700RT utilizes the Mountain Crawler™ system to make carrying the pack a breeze. Included in this system is an asymmetrical waist belt design which permits a larger, more functional waist belt storage pocket allowing for "cockpit access" to critical items while still wearing the pack.

Also part of the Mountain Crawler™ system, the "Center of Gravity" lumbar design vastly enhances the ability to carry heavier loads with less fatigue. To do so, shoulder straps are padded with high density foam and the webbing connecting the shoulder straps to the pack is attached to the rear of the pack resulting in a more upright load and drastically more comfortable carriage than the competition's traditional lumbar packs.

The final Mountain Crawler™ system feature is the "Infinite Loop" shoulder strap innovation. The Billy 1700RT's shoulder straps move with the hunter's shoulders, independently of the pack's weight, allowing for maximum versatility and comfort whether climbing a tree or shooting a bow or gun. The Infinite Loop shoulder straps result in balanced weight for maximum comfort over any terrain.

The Billy 1700RT also features a Roll-Top opening for quiet and easy access to the generous main storage area of the pack. On the inside of the pack there is a Hunter Specific Organization System which provides suggested storage and organization for important hunting gear. The pack also has large pass through side and front pockets for carrying more gear.

The Billy 1700RT is hydration compatible and has low profile lash points for easy external gear attachment. The innovative waist belt cam buckle adjusts easily and much more quietly than traditional buckles.

To help keep hunters cool and comfortable, the Billy 1700RT utilizes Tri-Vent three-layer padding. This padding creates a wicking, breathable, comfortable, and cool back panel.

The Billy 1700RT is available in four camouflage patterns with unique tonal color blocking. Available camouflage patterns include Realtree Max-1®, Realtree Xtra®, Mossy Oak Country®, and Mossy Oak Bottomland®.

REDHEAD

New RedHead® Turkey Decoy BagPack makes carrying decoys safer and more convenient

While the average decoy spread for turkey hunting looks nothing like the ginormous faux flocks that snow goose hunters use, it’s not uncommon for turkey hunters to set up two, three, or even more decoys. The new RedHead® Turkey Decoy Bag makes toting those decoys to the field easier and safer. This bag means that you can put an end to stuffing your decoys and stakes in the back pocket of your turkey vest. The bag’s main compartment is so big it will easily accommodate a strutting gobbler/jake decoy and at least two hens. The 24" wide x 34" tall BagPack works great with any brand, no matter how bulky the decoys.

A separate pocket for your decoy stakes, including the RedHead® Remote Strut Stake, makes them easy to find even when you’re in a hurry. The stake pocket’s heavy duty reinforced nylon bottom will keep stakes from poking out of the material while the Decoy BagPack’s brushed polyester material is sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of turkey hunting. You can make the bag fit your frame with the adjustable backpack straps.

In addition to convenience and durability, the RedHead Turkey Decoy BagPack provides a safer, smarter way to transport your decoys while hunting.

The RedHead® Turkey Decoy BagPack is available www.basspro.com/RedHead-Turkey-Decoy-BagPack/product/13092606511610/.

FLYING FISHERMAN SUNGLASSES

In addition to producing sportfishing programs for television, Flying Fisherman® launched its line of polarized eyewear in 1985 after years of research and development in the Florida Keys, its home base since 1972. The extreme sun and harsh conditions in the Florida Keys, along with the tremendous variety of game fish, provide the best fishing opportunity in continental America, and phenomenal product testing grounds.

During the production of the company's sportfishing TV programs, polarized camera lenses were used to reduce glare and capture the action. Sight fishing and deep-water action revealed the obvious need for polarized eyewear as well, just as local sportfishing professionals needed polarized sunglasses to do their daily job. Add the three big reasons for "turn over" -- glasses being lost, scratched, or broken -- and the company discovered a need for quality, affordable, polarized eyewear.

Flying Fisherman® Polarized Sunglasses are designed by fishermen for fishermen, and are a quality alternative to expensive eyewear. Every fishing environment out there, except for ice fishing, is available in the Florida Keys…from gin clear to brackish brown water, the deep blue Atlantic, sand and grass flats, and more. It's here that top sportfishing professionals assist us every day in field testing and developing new products...before the Flying Fisherman® brand name is put on them.

The Quality Alternative to Expensive Eyewear

Flying Fisherman Sunglasses are designed to provide quality, affordable polarized eyewear. More than 35 frame styles and a variety of AcuTint™ Sunlens options make up the collection, from classic, traditional models to sleek wrap around designs and mirrored lens treatments, Flying Fisherman Sunglasses are both stylish and fully functional, and offer uncompromising clarity, performance and value.

Polarization & UV Protection

The process of polarization uses a special filter to absorb glare producing light waves reflected off horizontal surfaces. Flying Fisherman AcuTint™ lenses eliminate glare with minimal color distortion, sharpen visul acuity and reduce eye strain.

Flying Fisherman Sunglasses provide maximum protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays, and meet or exceed FDA, ANSI and European(CE) standards for general purpose eyewear.

AcuTint™ SunLenses

Flying Fisherman Sunglasses are offered in five durable lens materials.
• Precision Ground & Polished Polarized Glass
• Virtually Indestructible Polarized Polycarbonate
• Polished Polarized Glass
• S13 Hard Coated Polarized Plastic
• Premium 1.1mm Polarized Plastic

The color of the sunlens is critical to the ability of your sunglasses to function under various conditions. Flying Fisherman AcuTint™ sunlens system offers the most effective lens tints in the color spectrum.

Smoke - Best for bright, sunny conditions such as deep water, lakes and offshore fishing. Blue mirror coating available with some styles.

Amber - Excellent for shallow water fishing, cloudy or rainy days, or other high contrast conditions. Green mirror coating available with some styles.

Yellow-Amber - Great for fishing in extremely low light, like early morning or late evening.

Vermillion - A favorite for sight fishing, muddy water and low light conditions. Red/Gold mirror coating available with some styles.

ONOS TRADING COMPANY SUNGLASSES

About ONOS Sunglasses

No matter what brand I purchased or where I purchased the sunglasses from, I was always disappointed because they couldn't be adjusted so they'd feel right .

Finally, I tried ONOS, and they are great. Not only can I wear them at the beach, around town, or when fishing or hunting, because I have a full range of vision, and the bi-focal part helps me read outdoors or while tying a fly on my fishing line. They come in different focus lengths if you want the bi-focal style, or plain, in a variety of lens colors, if you don't need the bi-focals. What's great, too, is that I can see right into the water while fishing or kayaking because they are

ONOS, according to the manufacturer are the first sunglasses ever to combine all the features active adults want and need into one total package. Best of all, active farsighted people can enjoy outdoor activities without the hassle of switching glasses as I had to do before discovering ONOS. With ONOS polarized sunglasses with readers built in, you can enjoy a new dimension of comfort, convenience, and style without the prescription price of bifocals.

The Polycarbonate lenses are lightweight, optically clear and more scratch resistant than standard lenses; the frame styles with polarized lenses offer additional relief from horizontal glare; the lenses provide 100% protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays; the integrated reader lens is positioned low in the lens for active outdoor use; the lens colors are designed to enhance the true color spectrum resulting in clear and brilliant vision; and reader strengths are available in a wide assortment of magnification strengths.

By combining the polarized lens with our unique reader magnification enhancement, the company has created a product that eliminates the need for bi-focals or to switch glasses to read or perform other close-up tasks when outdoors. The pair I chose is so lightweight that sometimes I forget they're on my face! Next, I think I'll buy an extra pair to keep in my ski bag or when I go snowshoeing.

Brownells® Introduces Broken Shell Extractor

Cartridge shell case head separation can ruin any shooting experience. Brownells® comes to the rescue with a new broken shell extractor (stock no. 080-000-441) that allows shooters to easily remove broken cases without losing time.

Ideal for AR-15/M16 shooters, the .223 caliber broken shell extractor easily removes over-fired or out-of-spec brass. The tool removes a damaged case from any firearm chambered for either the .223 Remington or 5.56 NATO cartridges. "AR-15/M16 style rifles continue to grow in popularity as does reloading for these rifles," said Frank Brownell, company president. "Trying to squeeze the most power out of the .223 can put a great deal of stress on cases, as can excess headspace. The unique design of the Broken Shell Extractor allows shooters to eject broken cases without needing to disassemble the rifle. "

Adjustable for overall length, the tool completely engages the edge or lip of the case mouth, making it possible for the gun's extractor to pull the Broken Shell Extractor out of the chamber, along with the remains of the case. The compact, steel Broken Shell Extractor is one of those valuable tools that you don't need often, but when you need it, you need it a lot!

U.S. Commercial Markets Get First Chance at New Taurus Military Pistol

In an unprecedented move by a handgun manufacturer, Taurus International has announced that it will release its next generation military pistol to civilian and law enforcement markets ahead of the now-postponed Joint Combat Pistol (JCP) system trials.

The new 24/7 OSS™, available in .45 ACP, .40 cal and 9mm, was designed and built to exceed all requirements originally set forth by the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) for its new sidearm and is capable of firing tens of thousands of rounds in virtually any environment for unprecedented reliability, accuracy and durability in real-world situations.

The performance of the new 24/7 OSS™ is due in part to Taurus’ most recent industry-changing innovation – the Single Action/Double Action trigger system. Firing normally from single action mode, if the primer ever fails to ignite, the gun reverts to a double-action mode to provide a life-saving second or third try at a faulty cartridge – giving the 24/7 OSS™ a failure-free reliability no other pistol on the market has matched.

When field-stripping the 24/7 OSS™, users will discover an 18.5 lb. recoil spring that cycles the slide faster, a heavy Match Grade 5¼” barrel forged from ordinance grade steel and a stainless steel guide rod that adds just the right amount of front end weight for improved recoil control and rapid fire accuracy.

The 24/7 OSS™ features an aggressive checkered grip that allows a glue-like purchase on the gun even with sweaty hands.  Ambidextrous Indexed Memory Pads™ along the frame provide an automatic finger locator for safe firearm handling as well as an aid for quick and accurate aim when using a traditional two-handed grip.  An integral Picatinny rail system that accommodates slide-on lights or laser sights, a SA/DA indicator on the rear of the slide that shows whether the pistol is in “cocked” or “decocked” mode, front slide serrations and a reversible magazine release combine for increased versatility of the new OSS.

The Taurus 24/7 OSS™ DS model features ambidextrous decock/safety levers that allow the user to carry the gun with the striker cocked and ready to fire, and can then be kept in safety-on “cocked and locked” mode. The user can also release the internal striker without discharging the chambered round by simply pushing upwards on the safety lever, which then places the pistol in double-action mode.  You can then carry the gun in double action mode with or without the safety on.  The 24/7 OSS™ is also available in a D model, with decocker only.

Both 24/7 OSS™ models come standard with a visual loaded chamber indicator and the unique Taurus Security System® that allows users to securely lock the gun.   The new Taurus 24/7 pistols will carry an MSRP of about $600.

Browning X-Bolt™ -- The New Benchmark in Bolt-Action Rifle Design

The Browning X-Bolt produced in 2008 builds on the proven success of past Browning rifles, and adds numerous improvements that will position the X-Bolt at the top of bolt actions offered to today's discriminating sportsman.

X-Bolt Feather™ Trigger has a new adjustable three-lever Feather Trigger system that offers the best feel on any Browning rifle ever and provides a clean, crisp pull with no take-up or creep and minimal overtravel. The trigger is screw adjustable from 3 to 5 lbs. and factory pre-set at approximately 3 ∏ lbs. An alloy trigger housing contains the hard chromed steel components that are highly polished on all critical surfaces. Precise engagement angles gives the X-Bolt Feather Trigger a lighter trigger pull feel that stays that way through many thousands of rounds.

Bolt Unlock Button feature a new bolt unlock button that works with the top-tang safety. Conveniently located on top of the bolt lever, the bolt unlock button allows the bolt to be unlocked and opened with the safety in the on position. The safety blocks the trigger sear and features a firing pin block for added safety.

Inflex Technology Recoil Pad. An all new Inflex Technology recoil pad is standard on every X-Bolt rifle. This ultra soft pad offers the best recoil absorption available on any rifle. The proprietary construction and material promote a directional deflection of recoil forces, pulling the stock comb away from the face to reduce felt recoil and muzzle climb.

X-Lock™ Scope Mounting System.  The X-Lock mounts feature an all new four screw per base design that replaces the traditional two screw system. This gives the X-Bolt the most stable scope mounting system possible with the bases being secured on all four corners rather than only attached at the center of the base for more accurate placement on the receiver.

An all new detachable rotary magazine is incorporated into the X-Bolt. Constructed from a durable lightweight polymer, the magazine is designed to feed cartridges directly in-line with the bolt, instead of offset as with traditional leaf-spring magazines, for a straight shot right into the chamber. The magazine sits flush with the bottom of the rifle for a sleeker appearance.

Other features found on the new Browning X-Bolt will include a short 60º bolt lift that provides fast cycling and allows the shooter to work the bolt more quickly without the scope getting in the way. The bolt has three locking lugs to provide exceptional bolt strength. The X-Bolt barrel is free-floated by bedding the front and rear of the action for stability and to help maintain barrel to stock spacing.  A recessed muzzle crown helps protect the rifling from damage.

The new Browning X-Bolt is offered in Hunter and Medallion models with wood stocks and in Composite Stalker and Stainless Stalker models with composite stocks.  Short action composite model weight is 6 lbs. 5 oz. and long action wood stock models weight is 7 lbs. Calibers offered from 243 Win. to  375 H & H Mag. Suggested Retail $799.00 to $1,049.00.

MERKEL RIFLES

Merkel Officially Launches Its MHR 16 Bolt-Action Rifle in the U.S.

In 2016, legendary German firearms manufacturer Merkel tested the waters of the American market with the company’s first exceptionally affordable bolt-action rifle. The market responded very positively to this rifle that combines the classic hunting rifle style with old-world craftsmanship and the latest manufacturing technology. Freshly renamed the MHR 16 for its official full production run, this bolt-action rifle was designed and manufactured specifically to exceed the expectations of American hunters and shooters.

Available in both wood- and synthetic-stocked versions, the MHR 16 rifle is a platform that is a functional, practical and beautifully refined, yet it is surprisingly affordable for the American market. The MHR 16 features a cold-forged and precision-machined receiver. The rifle’s full-bodied bolt has three lugs for maximum strength and safety, and a 60-degree throw allows it to glide effortlessly for fast follow-up shots. The receiver is mated to a Merkel’s world-renowned cold-hammer-forged barrel in a standard contour.

The MHR 16 features a direct trigger that breaks at just less than three pounds. The rifle’s safety is located behind the bolt handle and acts directly upon the sear. It also features a separate chamber lock, which allows safe unloading while keeping the safety “on.” The detachable box magazine is removable by way of an innovative release built to surround the front of the trigger guard. Optics can be mounted with standard Savage mounts.

Merkel offers the MHR 16 in two versions: a grade-one walnut stocked version and a fiberglass-reinforced, black synthetic-stocked version. Both versions are available in standard and magnum calibers: .243 Win., 6.5x55, .270 Win., .308 Win., .30-’06 Sprg., 9.3x62, .300 Win. Mag. and 7mm Rem. Mag. The walnut MHR 16 weighs 7 pounds, 4.4 ounces, and the synthetic version weighs 6 pounds, 9.8 ounces.

The suggested retail price for the walnut MHR 16 is $899, and the synthetic MHR 16 is $799. Rifles are now on dealer’s shelves wherever Merkel firearms are sold. The Merkel MHR 16 rifles will be in the Steyr Arms and Merkel USA booth at SHOT Show, #10246.

Weatherby® introduces the Vanguard® Adaptive Composite rifle with adjustable stock                                                                                                       

Dialing in the exact fit between rifle and rifleman is critical to precise long-range shooting. Now Weatherby shooters can achieve just that in the new Vanguard® Adaptive Composite rifle. It features a revolutionary, specially-designed stock that allows each owner to adjust pull length, comb height and buttstock angle for a true custom fit.

“At Weatherby, our creed is that Nothing Shoots Flatter, Hits Harder, or is More Accurate®,” said Jason Evans, Vice President, Sales & Product Development of Weatherby, Inc. “That said, accuracy is the one Weatherby virtue that also rests squarely on the shooter’s shoulders. To perform at the highest level, the fit between gun and gunner is of utmost importance – which is why we worked so hard to develop the fully-adjustable, adaptive Vanguard,” Evans added.

Visually, the rifle’s attitude is as serious as its performance. Stock adjustments can be made quickly, whether in the shop or on-the-fly in the field. Rubberized grip panels ensure that wherever skin comes in contact with the weapon, a secure, comfortable, non-slip connection is made. Within that adaptive stock lies the backbone of the Vanguard – a 20-inch #3 contour threaded barrel, chambered in either .223 REM, 6.5 Creedmoor or .308 WIN and guaranteed for SUB-MOA accuracy. The barrel is cold hammer forged with a flush thread cap for fast, easy suppressor enhancement (suppressor not included). The blue steel is matte bead blasted for non-glare stealth.

True to the Vanguard line, this rifle has a match-grade, two-stage trigger that’s creep-free for consistent let-off and hand-honed for a clean, crisp break. The bolt body is longitudinally fluted to reduce weight, decrease bearing surface area and eliminate binding for a butter-smooth action. A one-piece machined receiver comes standard with an integral recoil lug for the utmost in strength and structural integrity.

For shooters born to compete at the range, in the field or in their line of heroic work, the rifle must become an extension of themselves. With the Weatherby Vanguard Adaptive Composite, this rifle adjusts to become that perfect extension.

Browning Introduces New Cynergy Classic Trap Unsingle Combo

Browning's diverse line of high-performance trap shotguns now includes the Cynergy Classic Trap Unsingle Combo that will give trap shooters one of the most advanced over and under shotgun designs to use in either singles or doubles competition.

The new Cynergy Classic Trap Unsingle Combo set includes an adjustable Unsingle Rib with single barrel and an over and under barrel set, all in an aluminum case. The Unsingle Rib can be easily fine tuned for sight picture and point of impact adjustments.

It offers the benefits of crisper feel and lighter pull, plus greatly reduced locktime and overtravel.

Remington's Wingmaster HD

Remington's Wingmaster HD, the ultimate in high-performance hunting ammunition that's perfect for the waterfowl season. Utilizing Remington's proprietary composite of tungsten-bronze-iron metal (approved for waterfowl hunting by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service), Wingmaster HD outperforforms, says the company, existing products with distinct and measurable advantages in pattern density and overall multi-range effectiveness. With "Drop-Dead Better" Performance, Wingmaster HD exhibits the following advantages:

12.0 Grams/CC Pellet Density -- The optimal pellet density for an ideal combination of pattern energy and dispersion without sacrificing pellet count at extended ranges - unlike some competitive loads.

Round, Smooth, True-to-Size Pellets -- Wingmaster HD pellets ae smooth and round, resulting in true flight for dense, efficient patterns with no flyers. Every pellet is consistent in size and shape and equally effective in performance.

Choke Responsiveness -- Changin hunting conditions often call for an adjustment in pattern diameter. Wingmaster RD has a hardness rating similar to steel shot resulting in improved choke tube responsiveness, a benefit not previously obtainable with high density shot materials.

Equal Energy in Every Pellet -- Because Wingmaster HD pellets are true-to-size and round, individual pellets maintain consistent velocity and energy for deep penetration at long range.

Remington's Model 105CTi™ Autoloader  

The 12-gauge, 3-inch magnum Remington® Model 105CTi shotgun is a technologically-advanced, gas-operating autoloader that combines great looks, smooth handling and reliable operation in our lightest weight (7 lbs.) and softest recoiling, autoloading platform ever.

The Model 105CTi autoloading shotgun has many patent-pending and unique design features beginning with the core of the Model 105 – its skeletonized 12-gauge receiver, fully capable of handling 3-inch magnum or light 2 3/4-inch loads interchangeably. Constructed of aircraft-grade Titanium with a carbon-fiber shell, the receiver provides unparalleled strength in a slim, compact design which reduces the overall weight of the gun. The ambidextrous “Double Down” bottom feed and ejection system provides for quick, smooth reloading and no distractions from shell ejection. The TurboFeed™ loading system allows for the first shell to be loaded directly from the magazine into the chamber; provides rapid loading; faster follow-up shots; and equally as fast unloading.

The Model 105CTi autoloader reduces the shock of felt recoil through an innovative, four part process with up to a 50% reduction in recoil. The Rate Reduction System, located in the stock, provides for consistent and reliable feed, regulation of bolt velocity and reduction of felt recoil through its patented oil-filled cylinder. Addition of a newly designed, convex R3® Recoil Pad further reduces recoil and provides for ease of mounting the Model 105CTi on the range or in the field over bulky outer clothing. A simple and efficiently-designed gas operating system features a one-piece, inertia sleeve and gas seal. In addition to reducing recoil, this design reduces maintenance of the Model 105CTi by requiring less cleaning with fewer parts. Further reduction of recoil is achieved through the overbored barrel (.735 inch diameter) with lengthened forcing cones. Overboring also reduces pellet deformity and increases pattern performance.

Durability and performance features on the Model 105CTi have not been overlooked. The hammer-forged, carbon steel barrels come with twin bead sights and are available in 28 and 26-inch lengths. Unique to the Model 105 is a stylized vent rib crafted of carbon and aramid fibers, which further reduces weight and provides increased strength and protection against damage. The overbored barrels are equipped with the high-performance ProBore™ Choke Tubes to optimize patterns and each Model 105 comes with Improved Cylinder, Modified and Full flush choke tubes. Our patented, multilayer TriNyte™ coating protects the receiver from scratches and corrosion and adds to the gun’s durability. The unique rotating bolt lock-up reduces friction and increases the smooth and efficient operation of this autoloader. A critical feature of any high performance shotgun is the trigger and the Model 105CTi features a new patent pending trigger designed for crisp, consistent trigger pulls (set at 3 1/2 to 4 pounds from the factory) and has a traditional cross- bolt safety, which is reversible for left-handed shooters.

The Model 105 CTi design does not stop with reliability and performance, this autoloader has great looks, too. The satin finish on the barrel and modern, aesthetic appearance of the receiver compliment the American walnut stock. Custom laser cut checkering, satin finish and commemorative grip cap, recognizing Remington’s “100 Years of Autoloading Shotguns” manufacturing, complete this handsome stock. The eye-catching Model 105 CTi logo is featured on the fore-end and receiver side. Ready to take afield or to the range, the Model 105 comes complete with a rugged, lockable hard case.

The Model 105 CTi is available at a suggested retail price of $1332.

'Note: The ProBore choke tubes are not interchangeable with standard Rem Choke tubes.

Remington's Model 1100 G3 with 2 3/4 and 3-Inch Capability

The Remington® Model 1100 autoloading shotgun has earned a solid reputation worldwide on the range and in the field for over four decades and continues today to be the most popular autoloader in the marketplace. Now you can count on the same reliability, smooth handling and soft recoil of the Model 1100 in a new, enhanced 2 3/4 and 3-inch version – the Model 1100 G3 in 12 and 20-gauge offerings, delivered in a lockable, hard case.

The performance-driven design of the G3 autoloader makes it capable of handling 2 3/4 and 3-inch shells and incorporates features that enhance the gas-operating system, reduce wear and improve cleaning of the time-proven Model 1100. Starting with the solid carbon steel receiver, the G3 wears a Titanium PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating which provides an attractive, yet durable finish. All internal operating parts (action bars, action bar sleeve, action spring, locking block, hammer, sear and magazine tube) are honed and feature a nickel-plated, Teflon® coating as do the trigger and extended carrier release. Other improvements include a pressure compensated barrel which enables the use of light 2 3/4-inch target loads interchangeably with heavier 3-inch magnum loads and the recoil-dampening R3® Recoil Pad, which significantly lessens felt recoil for quicker target acquisition and follow-up shots.

The 12-gauge versions of the G3 have overbored (diameter of .735 inch) vent rib barrels which utilize the new custom-designed ProBore™ choke tubes. Choice of a 28 or 26-inch barrel length is available with Skeet, Improved Cylinder, Light Modified, Modified and Full ProBore flush choke tubes. The 20-gauge versions feature the versatile Rem® Choke system on the carbon steel vent rib barrel and include Improved Cylinder, Light Modified, Modified, Improved Modified and Full choke tubes with choice of barrel in 28 or 26-inch lengths.

REMINGTON RIFLES

Remington Introduces the Model 798™ Centerfire Rifle – Based on the 98 Mauser Action and the Compact Model 799™ Mini Mauser Centerfire Rifle

A survivor of two world wars and over one hundred years of service, the widely popular, classic Model 98 Mauser action has served faithfully as the platform of choice for many successful bolt action rifles and is sought after by today’s hunters and shooters. Now Remington is pleased to announce a line of bolt action centerfire rifles based on the Mauser 98 action – the Model 798 in four popular standard cartridge chamberings (.243 Win, 308 Win, .30-06 Sprg, and .270 Win) and four magnum chamberings (7mm Rem Mag, .300 Win Mag, .375 H&H, and .458 Win Mag).

The Model 798, with its square bridge receiver is true to the Model 98 Mauser lineage in every way. Standard features include two dual opposed forward locking lugs, rear safety lug, flat bolt face, non-rotating claw extractor for legendary controlled round feeding and fixed blade ejector. Additional features include a solid steel trigger guard with integral magazine well, steel hinged floor plate, steel magazine follower and a single stage trigger with a two-position sporter style tang safety. Hammer forged barrels deliver outstanding accuracy from the bench or in the field. Receivers are drilled and tapped for scope mounts and feature a rich, high-polished blued finish as do the barrels.

These high-performance bolt action rifles combine the inherent Mauser action accuracy and reliable, controlled round cartridge feed in an aesthetically-pleasing, brown laminate stock designed exclusively for the Model 798 with the American shooter in mind. In addition to classic American lines, the stock features a one inch rubber recoil pad, sling swivel studs and distinctive cut checkering.

A modern variant of a timeless classic, the Model 799 Mini-Mauser is available in five traditional short action chamberings (.22 Hornet, .222 Remington, .22-250 Remington, .223 Remington and 7.62x39mm). The Model 799 features many of the same characteristics of the Model 798 including solid steel receivers and trigger guards as well as a single stage trigger with two position safety. The Model 799 forgoes the heavy non-rotating claw extractor for a Sako-style extractor well suited for feeding and extracting smaller cartridges.

Like the Model 798, the Model 799 features a clean, hammer forged barrel for exceptional accuracy. Both the barrel and solid steel receiver have a polished blue finish and are drilled and tapped for scope mounts. Rounding out the list of features are a handsome brown laminated stock with sling swivel studs, butt plate and hinged floor plate magazines (.22 Hornet has a five-round detachable magazine box).

Known for positive cartridge feed and ejection with claw-style extractor; strength and reliability; fast lock time and accuracy, the classic Mauser 98 action platform is the core of the new Remington® Model 798 and the foundation for the new Model 799. Combining these attributes with a handsome, wood laminate stock and Remington’s assurance of quality a Model 798 and Model 799 should be in every shooter’s gun safe.

Available at a suggested retail price of $599 (standard cartridge offerings), $635 (7mm Rem Mag and .300 Win Mag) and $839 (.375 H&H and .458 Win Mag).

SAKO RIFLES

Sako A7 Designed For The American Hunter

The Sako A7 meets accuracy and dependability straight out of the box. Available in 2008 as the new benchmark for the perfect American hunting rifle, mixing the world's finest out-of-the-box accuracy rating with superior value, the new Sako A7 offers the rare combination of unprecedented accuracy and ultimate reliability at an affordable price.

The Sako A7 improves upon the world famous Sako 75 design, featuring a machined forged-steel bolt, match-grade hammer-forged barrel, adjustable single-stage trigger (adjustable between 2.2 and 4.9 pounds), detachable magazine and synthetic stock. The A7 also integrates the new Total Control' Magazine Latch introduced on the Sako 85, eliminating any chance that the box magazine can come loose during operation. This new rifle is available in two finishes: blued and Sako's no-glare Stainless Steel. The A7's bolt offers a silky-smooth movement with a 70-degree throw. Together with Sako's super-crisp trigger, the A7 provides an incredibly fast total lock time of less than 1.3 milliseconds.

Since 1921, Sako has led the industry in accuracy by setting the standard by which all other rifles are compared. Each rifle must place five shots within one inch at 100 yards or they don‚t ship. Serious shooters know that in order to obtain consistent sub-inch groups one must start with a high-quality firearm and move forward from there. The new A7 not only holds the same level of accuracy as its brother the Sako 85, but it offers a price that makes the A7 the hands down best value in the American market.

The new Sako A7 rifle series is a superbly executed medley of tradition, technology, out-of-the-box accuracy and unprecedented value.

INSECT REPELLENTS

DON'T BUG ME

Innovative Don’t Bug Me! Skin Patch Provides Effective All-Natural Insect Repellent and Protection for Up To 36 hours; DEET-free and Safe for Children

 Don’t let mosquitoes or other pesky bugs take a bite out of you this summer.  While bug bites are often seen as a necessary evil of outdoor activity, statistics show that these bites can also be dangerous – leading to increased incidence of West Nile, Encephalitis and Lyme disease and even illnesses such as Malaria acquired through international travel.  And then there’s the annoying itching, swelling and redness that also occur when a nasty bug takes a bite out of your skin.

Just in time for summer, the Don’t Bug Me! insect repellent patch offers a first of its kind solution -- a transdermal skin patch that delivers a combination of protective Vitamin B1 and aloe combination throughout the body. One patch protects against bites from pesky, disease-carrying mosquitoes, gnats, ticks, chiggers, sand fleas and no seeums for up to 36 hours.

Concerns about increased prevalence of West Nile, Encephalitis and Lyme disease in the United States and also exposure to Malaria and other diseases have helped fuel sales of insect repellent, up over 30 percent since 2001. The potential of disease, coupled with concerns about the possible side effects of DEET, have led a growing number of consumers, particularly parents, searching for insect repellents that work but have low or no toxicity.  This summer, the Don’t Bug Me! Patch may provide the answer.

Vitamin B1 is the key effective ingredient in Don’t Bug Me! Patch, and when applied to the skin, provides protection from biting insects.  The thiamine-based formula is absorbed into the bloodstream through the transdermal delivery of the Don’t Bug Me! Patch.  Excess B1 is then secreted through the body’s pores, creating an odor that is almost undetectable to humans, but offensive to mosquitoes.  This odor forms a protective barrier around the body that shields the user from mosquitoes and other biting insects.  Aloe, the other active ingredient, accelerates the absorption of the B1 and serves as an anti-inflammatory, and in the event of a rare bite — it helps reduce the reaction, particularly for those who are sensitive to mosquito bites.

Don’t Bug Me! Patch offers the following positive attributes as compared to messy sprays, lotions or towelettes:

  • No DEET, safe for children and adults alike
  • Easy, no mess application– just apply a patch to your skin
  • Protects skin often missed with a spray, such as ears and scalp
  • Waterproof, no need to re-apply after swimming or exercise
  • Protects up to 36 hours
  • Patent pending, all-natural formula
  • Incredibly effective

Early testing with select Boy Scout groups, members of the U.S. Army and professionals who spend their days working outside in bug-infested areas has brought in rave reviews about the effectiveness of Don’t Bug Me! Patch More specifically:

·       EODT, a security company for the U.S. government while helping to rebuild Iraq used the patches and re-ordered when they realized the patch works against sand fleas, a larger problem than mosquitoes in Iraq.

·       More than 30 soldiers in the U.S. Army tried the product while in the deep woods near the Arkansas river and found they were effective during their three-week stay in the chigger infested woods.  They reported NO bites from mosquito, chiggers, or ticks.

The Don’t Bug Me! Patch is available at natural food stores and major retailers nationwide.  The product comes in a five-pack for a suggested retail price of $4.99 and a 10 pack for a suggested retail price of $7.99.

THERMACELL

ThermaCELL Mosquito Repellent --- Great When Hunting Or Any Other Time!

ThermaCELL, manufacturer of the only portable, butane-operated, area mosquito repellent, offers an attractive upright lantern that provides not only unmatched protection from insects, but ambient outdoor lighting as well.  No more swatting, no more lotions or sprays, and no need to buy expensive bug tents: the ThermaCELL Lantern is up to 98% effective at warding off mosquitoes, black flies, and no-see-ums.

The ThermaCELL Lantern is silent and odor free, has no messy wax, and turns off automatically if accidentally tipped over.  It operates on a single butane cartridge, which heats a mat releasing Allethrin, an insect repellent that is a synthetic copy of pyrethrin, a natural insecticide found in the pyrethrum flower, creating a 15 x 15–foot comfort zone.  Each mat contains enough repellent for four hours of protection and each butane cartridge will operate the unit for 12 hours.

The Lantern is available in a standard clear, as well as a mood version that provides a vivid, ever-changing “color show” of rainbow light.  The Mood Lantern is best viewed in low-light conditions and adds ambiance to any patio, deck or campsite. 

The Mood Lantern can be used as a Mosquito Repellent Lantern, as a Mood Lantern, or as both at the same time.  The “color show” uses a proprietary battery-operated LED unit imbedded in the base of the lantern and is activated by pressing the “ON” button on the bottom of the unit. The zone of mosquito protection is activated by inserting a butane cartridge and repellent mat and lighting the lantern.

The Lantern comes with one butane cartridge and three repellent mats.  The Mood Lantern comes with one butane cartridge, three repellent mats, and 4 batteries.  Both lanterns are 8.5” tall and 5” in diameter at the widest point. MSRP is $24.99 for clear and $29.99 for the Mood Lantern.  Both are available at mass merchants, hardware stores, and outdoor retailers.

ThermaCELL, a division of The Schawbel Corporation of Bedford, Massachusetts, utilizes patented technology to create cordless, portable appliances powered by replaceable butane cartridges.

Hi Mountain Knives

Hi Mountain Seasonings Introduces the Ultimate Jerky Cutting Board & Knife

Hi Mountain Seasonings, the flavor leader in jerky and seasonings, has introduced its innovative, patent-pending Ultimate Jerky Cutting Board to make quick work of safely and easily slicing uniform strips of meat for making jerky. The HMS Ultimate Jerky Cutting Board is also perfect for slicing fruits, vegetables, or any other item used on a conventional cutting board.

The Ultimate Jerky Cutting Board is molded of extremely durable polypropylene polymer. It features a 1/4-inch depth on one side, and a 3/8-inch depth on the other, with a rim around the outside and down the center that guides the knife blade for consistent cuts. Ridges on both sides trap excess liquids, and textured surfaces on the ridges grip meats while tenderizing to help seasoning penetrate the meat.

The Ultimate Jerky Cutting Board also has a textured hand protector that provides even downward pressure while keeping the blade safely away from the user's hands. The hand protector locks into the 3/8-inch side of the cutting board, and the included 13 1/2-inch jerky knife nests inside it for easy storage. The Outdoor Edge knife features a surgically sharp, high-carbon, 420 stainless steel blade and an easy-grip, ergonomic, nonslip rubberized Kraton Handle. A carry handle is conveniently molded into the top, making it easy to grab and go and the nonslip rubber feet on each corner of the Ultimate Jerky Cutting Board hold it firmly in place while cutting. Simply flip the board over to use the flat surface to strip-cut jerky slices or for any other conventional-cutting board uses.

The HMS Ultimate Jerky Cutting Board is dishwasher safe, and each one is proudly made in Riverton, Wyo. It is currently available at your local Hi Mountain Seasonings retailer or conveniently online at www.himtnjerky.com for a suggested retail of $29.99.

Hi Mountain's entire line of products, cooking tips, instructional videos, and recipes are also available at www.himtnjerky.com. Hi Mountain products also can be found at high-end sporting-goods stores, farm-and-ranch stores and many local grocery stores.

Outdoor Edge’s New Grill-Beam Tongs and Grill-Beam Tong/Spatula Cast a New Light on Grilling

I've tried just about every grill light known to man or woman over the past few years -- and all failed to please me. They were either bulky to hold, wouldn't stay attached to the grill, or fell apart shortly after purchase.

Now I'm a happy griller -- for Outdoor Edge, the company that combines functional design with the sharpest steels and hand craftsmanship to create high-quality knives and tools, has made the barbequing season a delight --- with the introduction of its new illuminating Grill-Beam Tongs and Grill-Beam Tong/Spatula combo. These innovative, patented grilling tools are so easy to use and lit up my outdoor barbeque perfectly.

The Grill-Beam BBQ tools integrate powerful, 22-lumen AA LED flashlights in their spring-loaded tong pivots to put the spotlight on your culinary masterpiece. Designed for versatility, both the Grill-Beam Tongs and the Grill-Beam Tong/Spatula feature unique sliding shafts that telescope and lock for the option of a shorter, more controllable 14-5/8 inch tool, or expand to a full 17 inches in length to safely work a flaming grill or campfire. Both Grill-Beam models keep the chef happy and hydrated with a built-in bottle opener. The Grill-Beam Tong/Spatula combo feature an added grill cleaning notch and serrated edge to cut into the meat and check for doneness.

Crafted of sturdy, dishwasher-safe, 304 stainless steel, matched with a heat-resistant Zytel glass/nylon handle, the Grill-Beam tools are built strong enough to lift a heavy roast and will ensure a lifetime of use. A clip mounted at the end of each Grill-Beam makes them easy to close and store away. They are also lightweight, weighing in at only 16.6 oz.

The Grill-Beam Tongs and the Grill-Beam Tong/Spatula have suggested retail prices of $35.95 and $39.95, respectively. The Grill-Beams are available at retailers nationwide as well as conveniently online at www.outdooredge.com. For more information on the BBQ sets visit the website or an Outdoor Edge retailer.

Bushnell G-Force DX Receives Outdoor Life Gear Test Great Buy Award for its G-Froce DX Laser Rangefinder



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineBushnell, an industry-leader in high performance sports optics for more than 65 years, was awarded the Great Buy Award for the G-Force DX laser rangefinder in the 2014 Outdoor Life Rangefinder Gear Test.
 
For the gear test, Outdoor Life evaluated six laser rangefinders and scored the performance of each device based on the following criteria: accuracy, clarity, edge clarity, speed, display, low light performance and ease of use. The G-Force DX received a four-star rating and was noted for its ranging speed and overall value for the price. The G-Force DX also scored highly for its crisp perceived image and clear resolution in low-light scenarios. Testers commented on the G-Force DX's abundant features, such as Angle Range Compensation (ARC™) technology, and the rangefinder's ability to be mounted on a tripod for rock-steady, long-distance ranging.
 
Featuring a second generation E.S.P. (Extreme Speed Precision) processor, the G-Force DX combines range finding capabilities out to 1,300 yards with unprecedented precision and speed. The device offers ?-yard accuracy and 1/10 yard display precision from 5-125 yards and +/- one-yard accuracy beyond 125 yards.
 
Incorporating two patented Bushnell technologies - Vivid Display Technology (VDT™) and ARC - the G-Force DX provides unmatched ranging capabilities. The redesigned VDT features four brightness levels and a 15 percent brighter display while ARC technology accounts for terrain when calculating the distance to target, giving users precise shot angle information (from -90 to +90 degrees) and true horizontal distance in bow mode or precise holdover data (MOA, Mils or inches) in rifle mode.
 
Protected by a machined metal housing, durable rubber armor and patented RainGuard HD technology, the G-Force DX is ready for the toughest conditions. The G-Force DX has a built-in tripod mount and includes a neck strap, carrying case and CR123 battery.
 
The G-Force DX is available in gun metal grey and Realtree Xtra for minimum advertised prices (MAP) of $399.00 and $419.00, respectively.

CRIMSON TRACE



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line

Smith & Wesson New Lasergrips® for Compact M&P Pistols Available Now



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineCrimson Trace has developed a revolutionary new set of Lasergrips for the Smith & Wesson M&P compact pistols. The LG-661 fits the compact M&P chambered in .40 S&W, 9mm and the.357 SIG caliber of pistols. Suggested retail price is $329.00.

The compact LG-661 is as unique in design as the full-size version it mirrors, the LG-660. It replaces the stock M&P back strap grip insert and slides into place in just a few seconds using existing factory parts. It is instinctively activated by a pressure switch built into the backstrap of the polymer Lasergrip. Simply grasping the firearm in a normal shooting grip activates the laser. All electrical components fit into the Lasergrip, which is the same size and shape of the original M&P medium sized back strap.

There are two #2032 batteries located in the palm swell on the sides of the Lasergrips, providing over 4 hours of a constant-on beam time. The master switch is also located on the backstrap and uses a new touch sensor switch versus a mechanical switch as found on other Lasergrips. This allows the user to turn the unit on or off even while using gloves. Users simply press and hold the recessed pressure switch to turn the power on or off. The texture of the unit is almost identical to the stock S&W grip. Rubber overmolding on the backstrap covers the master on/off switch and the activation button, providing improved grip while shooting. This fully integrated laser sighting system is another Crimson Trace first in the marketplace.

Another feature of the LG-661 is that it uses a smaller 3.3mm diameter laser diode versus the standard 5.6mm diameter diode that is found in most all other brands of laser sighting devices. This results in a lower profile diode housing and a laser that emits the same brightness as one almost twice its size. As with all other Lasergrips, the LG-661 has both windage and elevation adjustments for shooters to make adjustments on their own. All Lasergrips come with an accessory pack that contains batteries, hex wrenches for laser adjustments, a cleaning cloth and several cleaning swabs. A three-year warranty is standard.

Lasergrips are made in the United States of America. Crimson Trace is the world's only manufacturer of grip-integrated laser sighting systems. Police, all branches of the U.S. Military, and responsible citizens' worldwide use patented Lasergrips. Crimson Trace Lasergrips are recommended as an essential accessory by some of the world's top firearm instructors.

Model LG-405 Crimson Trace Laser Grips



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineCrimson Trace has announced the latest advancement in J-frame Lasergrip technology for the Smith & Wesson small J-frame revolver. The new Model, LG-405, offers the mot ergonomic and slimmest grip ever designed with the advantage of built-in laser with the proven performance Crimson Trace is known for. Previously, the company provided two options for the S&W J-frame. The hard polymer Lasergrips, (LG-205) for ease of draw from deep concealment, or the more comfortable LG-305 that offers a rubber over molded construction for comfort during extended shooting sessions. With the new LG-405, you get the advantages of both.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineThe LG-405 features recoil-reducing rubber on both the front strap and the back strap while including a proprietary hard polymer for both side panels of the grip. A revolutionary airspace is located in the backstrap so when the recoil hits, it is reduced by the rubber backstrap giving a little into that air space, much like a car's hock absorber. This latest advancement makes shooting a lightweight Scandium frame .357 feel more like a .38 special.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineThis new model also features innovations over the current offerings by using an integrated one-piece design for easy installation, snap-in battery retainers, generous relief in the side panels to facilitate speed loaders and a master power switch. The Lasergrips are sighted in for 50 feet at the factory but can be zeroed in at different distances by using the windage and elevation adjustments. Patented Lasergrips, the world's only grip-integrated laser sight system, incorporate a laser sight and pressure-sensitive activation switch in the ergonomically designed grip. The LG-405 utilizes a front activated, rubber-overmolded switch to turn on the laser's bright, steady beam when the firearm is held in a normal firing grip. No other laser sighting system has this 'instinctive activation' feature.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineThe suggested price is $299. For more information, contact Crimson Trace Corporation, 8089 SW Cirrus Drive, Beaverton, Oregon 97008; 800-442-2406, or check web site www.crimsontrace.com.

Beretta® Bobcat/Tomcat Lasergrips from Crimson Trace®



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineCrimson Trace has released a new Lasergrips model, the LG-490, that fits the small semi-auto Bobcat and Tomcat from Beretta.  This new model complements the company's offerings of grip-integrated laser sighting systems for concealed carry firearms. The LG-490 has a unique front activation button that is located near the bottom of the grip itself, and is instinctively activated with the ring finger of the shooter, a first for Crimson Trace. The Lasergrip itself has been ergonomically designed to increase comfort and control of these small firearms while shooting.  Incidentally, while this Lasergrip was designed to fit right-handed shooters perfectly, there is a slight indentation on the right side of the grip that provides a left-handed shooter an ideal place for the middle finger to wrap around the grip.

Another break-through feature of the LG-490 is that this is the first model to use a smaller 3.3mm diameter laser diode vs. the standard 5.6 diameter diode that is found in all other laser sighting devices.  This advancement in laser diode technology allows an even crisper and clearer beam, and makes the LG-490 the slimmest unit yet. The entire grip is molded from a hard polymer to decrease drag while drawing the small semi-auto from a pocket or holster. As with all other Lasergrips, the LG-490 has both windage and elevation adjustments for shooters to make adjustments on their own.  All Lasergrips come with an accessory pack that contains batteries, hex wrenches for user adjustability, a cleaning cloth and several cleaning swabs.  A three-year warranty is standard. Suggested retail price on the Model LG-490 is $269.00.

Crimson Trace is the only manufacturer of grip-integrated laser sighting systems. Police, all branches of the U.S. Military, and responsible citizens worldwide use patented Lasergrips.

Redesigned Overmolded Lasergrips® for Small-Framed Taurus® Revolvers



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineCrimson Trace has introduced the second generation of Lasergrips for Taurus small-framed revolvers, the LG-385.  The LG-385 incorporates rubber overmolded construction to provide enhanced grip and reduce the shock of felt recoil. It is contoured to be both comfortable and secure in your hand while shooting.  Slight indentations allow the shooter to grasp the small revolver in a natural shooting grip that will instinctively activate the front-mounted pressure switch with the middle finger.  The two-piece construction covers both the front and back of the revolver grip with a tactile rubber overmold.

The LG-385 uses the same common CR2032 batteries as the majority of the other models of Lasergrips and provides a constant on time of four hours.  Shelf life is five years on these batteries and should provide several years of heavy shooting laser life.  As with all other Lasergrips, the LG-385 is user adjustable for windage and elevation.  For those wanting to have the laser turned off in certain situations, there is a master on/off switch located on the bottom of the Lasergrips. Installation is a breeze with the new LG-385. Simply remove the stock grips and attach the Lasergrip using the supplied screws.  The Lasergrip is pre-sighted at the factory for 50 feet but can be changed by the shooter by turning the elevation and windage adjustment screws located on the laser diode housing. All Lasergrips come with an accessory pack that contains batteries, hex wrenches for user adjustability, a cleaning cloth and several cleaning swabs.  A three-year warranty is standard. Suggested retail price on the Model LG-385 is $299.00.

Lasergrips Now Available For Ruger GP-100™ and Super Redhawk™



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineCrimson Trace Corporation has added yet another revolver Lasergrip to its ever-growing stable. The LG-344 is a unique Lasergrip that fits the Ruger GP-100 and the Ruger Super Redhawk line of revolvers.

The new LG-344 has several features that make it unique. One distinction of the LG-344 is that it is constructed of a rubber overmold with removable inserts. It comes with checkered black hard-polymer inserts that can be removed and replaced with the stock wood panels that typically come with the pistol (see fit notes). Unlike any other of the company's handgun Lasergrips, the LG-344 uses a CR123 battery for up to 20 times the run time of our other Lasergrips. That means about 20 hours of constant on. That is more than enough battery life to last a good 3 years of regular shooting. Other features that have been integrated into these Lasergrips are a storage space for the Allen wrench that adjusts the laser sight as well as a slot for the Ruger disassembly pin.

The grip itself has three distinct finger grooves molded into the front of the grip for added purchase and offers the latest front activation switch to give users ambidextrous, instinctive activation. The master on/off switch is located conveniently on the bottom of the grip.

The LG-344 has been torture tested at the range with the Ruger Super RedHawk Alaskan chambered in the powerful .480 Ruger. The company used COR®BON 275gr DPX to make sure the Lasergrip could take the recoil of the larger caliber revolvers. Even after hundreds of rounds of this powerful cartridge, the Lasergrip held true to Zero. Targeted retail price on the Model LG-344 is $299.00.

LaserLyte Announces New Side Mount Laser for Taurus Revolvers



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineLaserLyte® has announced the Side Mount Laser (SML) that fits nearly all Taurus® revolvers including the Judge, CIA, Protector and Raging Bull series. The new and inventive SML is easily mounted underneath the rubber grip of the revolver and is the only laser system available that allows the customer to use factory or custom grips and holster the firearm. This is especially exciting for Judge owners because the SML allows the user to utilize a laser, retain the factory Ribber Grips® that reduce felt recoil and holster the firearm.

To install the SML simply choose one of two included base plates that fits the revolver, temporarily remove the grip and screw the unit into place. Sight in is simple with common X and Y adjustments. The SML’s activation switch is strategically placed at the back of the laser and is easily turned on by pressing the button on draw or when holstered. First press of the button produces constant on mode, second press produces pulse mode and third press deactivates the laser. The SML also has a customer-requested auto-off feature that displays a unique flash after five minutes of operation and automatically turns the unit off after six minutes. Press the button at any time to reset this feature that prevents accidental activation and battery depletion. The unit is also easily moved from one Taurus revolver to another.

The compact base unit contains all components necessary for operation – laser, switch, battery and circuitry. The unit body is constructed from 380A die cast aluminum and the plates are made of 4130 hardened chromoly steel. The SML is powered by four 377 batteries that provide five hours of normal usage in constant on mode and ten hours in pulse mode. Normal usage is defined as one minute on and one minute off.

ADVANCED FOCUS SYSTEM™
Traditionally, light-focusing systems have consisted of either a lens, or a reflector. The Advanced Focus System (AFS) is the patented combination of a reflector AND lens to create a light system that provides both a focused beam for long-distance and a homogenous spill-beam for up-close reading. AFS means whether you’re reading a map up close or focusing down the path to a landmark in the distance, your light will be easy on the eyes, clear and bright.

Canon's VB-C300 PTZ Security Camera Delivers Widest Angle



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineCanon expands its acclaimed line of Network Video Solutions products with the addition of the VB-C300 Wide-Angle Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) network camera, addressing the confined quarters and wiring limitations often faced by small businesses. Offering the widest angle of view of any PTZ camera on the market, the new feature-packed VB-C300 PTZ Camera, along with the introduction of Version 1.3 of Canon's versatile VK-64 / VK-16 Network Video Recording Software, are the company's latest innovations for security and video-monitoring professionals needing to capture high-quality video and deliver it via a LAN or the Internet.

Offering a wide 70˚ horizontal angle of view, the VB-C300 PTZ Camera pans bi-directionally at ± 170˚ to deliver a total viewing angle that exceeds 360˚. This feature makes the VB-C300 PTZ Camera well-suited to tight, indoor spaces. The camera comes equipped with a high-sensitivity progressive-scan 310,000-effective pixel CCD that helps deliver crisp, well-defined images of even rapidly moving objects, as well as powerful low-light (1 Lux at 1/30 shutter speed) performance. In addition, an Automatic Day and Night Mode switches from color video to light-sensitive black & white video, depending on available illumination. Incorporating a Genuine Canon 2.4x Optical Zoom Lens with 4x Digital Zoom, the VB-C300 PTZ Camera has an Auto Focus system designed to keep the majority of the camera's image plane in sharp detail. The advanced lens design reduces the "fish-eye" distortion typical of extreme wide-angle lenses.

The integration of Canon's next-generation video codecs in the VB-C300 PTZ Camera provides many additional advantages, including high-performance data transmission that maintains a high video frame rate even during simultaneous access by multiple viewers. The VB-C300 PTZ Camera's built-in network server allows for viewing for up to 15 clients at the same time.

Full duplex, two-way audio support allows the VB-C300 PTZ Camera to both send and receive audio simultaneously, which enables security professionals monitoring its video to hear and speak to people appearing on-camera, while using a microphone. Security professionals can speak into a microphone connected to their monitoring PC and be heard at the camera's location through a powered speaker connected to the VB-C300 PTZ Camera. VB-C300 PTZ Camera also offers 20 pre-set pan, tilt, and zoom positions to further facilitate monitoring.

The VB-C300 PTZ Camera's Power Over Ethernet feature allows the camera to utilize a single Ethernet cable for data transmission and to power the camera. Because Power Over Ethernet makes a separate cable for electrical power unnecessary, this feature simplifies installation in single or multi-camera systems, particularly at sites where AC outlets are not readily accessible, resulting in faster and more cost effective installation. For installations not requiring Power Over Ethernet, however, the VB-C300 PTZ Camera has connectors enabling it to be powered via a 24V AC or 12V DC source. Built-in terminals for connection to external devices such as alarms and sensors are also included.

Optional indoor Dome Housings with either a Clear or "Smoke"-tinted dome and a Ceiling Bracket for the VB-C300 PTZ Camera provide a compact and attractive installation designed to provide an effective range of view while also being unobtrusive. In addition to its ability to pan bi-directionally at ± 170˚, the VB-C300 PTZ Camera also tilts at -25/+90 in upright mode, and +25˚/-90˚ in reverse mode installations.

VK-64 / VK-16 Version 1.3 Network Video Recording Software
Complementing the new VB-C300 Wide-Angle PTZ network camera is Canon's introduction of Version 1.3 of its optional VK-64 / VK-16 Network Video Recording Software. This software enables the VB-C300 PTZ Camera to interface over IP with all existing Canon Network Video Solutions PTZ and stationary ("fixed") cameras. Canon's VK-64 Version 1.3 Network Video Recording Software provides the ability to view and record high-quality, full-motion video over IP from as many as 64 Canon Network Cameras on a single PC storage server, while the VK-16 Software provides the same functionality and control for up to 16 cameras. Because this video is nonlinear, archiving and search functions are fast and efficient. Video can be recorded, managed, and accessed by computer, simplifying storage and playback.

Canon's VK-64 / VK-16 Version 1.3 Network Video Recording Software features a wide variety of new recording and playback options, including Camera Control, which gives viewers an array of camera-adjustment choices such as exposure, white balance, and auto panel. A new Status-bar display shows total frame rate, CPU activity, a video window, and display events. VK-64 / VK-16 Version 1.3 Network Video Recording Software also provides support for NAS (Network Attached Storage) to enable users to expand the storage area over their network easier than if they expanded their PC servers.

When used in combination with other Canon Network Video Solutions products–such as the new VB-C300 Wide-Angle PTZ camera–Canon's VK-64 / VK-16 Version 1.3 Network Video Recording Software provides security professionals with a versatile means of addressing their unique needs and applications. For more information on Canon's Network Video Solutions products log on to www.canondv.com/nvs.

The Canon VB-C300 PTZ Camera has an estimated selling price of $999.* Canon's VK-64 / VK-16 Version 1.3 Network Video Recording Software has an estimated selling price of $2499 and $999, respectively.*

All models may be purchased at authorized Canon dealers.

TIMNEY MANUFACTURING HAS New Innovative Remington 700 Replacement Trigger with Safety Included.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineTimney Manufacturing, one of the oldest and largest trigger manufacturers in the world, has been making replacement triggers for the very popular Remington Model 700 for over forty years. Their new Remington 700 w/ Safety trigger is the only after market trigger that comes ready to install with the safety included. Its safety blocks the trigger not the sear, which is a totally new design, and is easily installed with no screws, drilling, or tapping required.  By simply removing existing pins, replacing trigger, and inserting new pins anyone can replace a trigger on a Remington 700.

Installing the Timney Trigger will bring a whole new realm of accuracy to your trusty Remington rifle.  Each Timney Trigger is geometrically identical with tolerances less than .0005‰. The trigger housing features machined work surfaces that are milled from solid billet. All working parts are CNC machined with all contact/wear surfaces hardened and polished to provide you with years of dependable service. The trigger components are machined using state-of-the-art electrical discharge machines (EDM) from high-grade solid steel. Installing a new Timney Trigger will reduce the lock-time, or time it takes the firing pin to hit the primer from the time the trigger is pulled, which increases the overall accuracy of the shooter.

A completely new design, it utilizes a trigger blocking safety completely geometrically toleranced to give the same feel every time. No more guesswork! Cut from solid billet, no stamped or riveted parts here, each trigger is individually tested and calibrated in a Remington action before it leaves our factory. This is the perfect sporting trigger, solid, creep free, and adjustable from one and half pounds to four pounds.‰   

Since it was founded in 1946, Timney Manufacturing has built a reputation based on the quality of its products. Because of the precision machining and workmanship that goes into each and every Timney product they are often referred to as The World‚s Finest Triggers and they are used exclusively by some of the world's best custom gun manufacturers. Timney celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2006.

Cannon Safe Introduces Tru Rackä



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line

Anxious to solve the market’s problem of overstated rifle capacity in safes, Cannon has designed the new Tru Rackä.  This new rack offers a barrel down or barrel up gun storage interior, allowing the owner to use every slot in the rack.  The Tru Rackä is capable of holding up to 25 percent more than competitor racks and always holds exactly what is claimed.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineBarrel down storage is not only encouraged by experts, but also allows more rifles to fit.   The stocks generally take up a lot of floor space, therefore, by storing some barrel down the available space is increased.  Experts agree that storing wood stocked firearms barrel down is critical in preventing excess oils and unwanted condensation from damaging the wood stock.  Also, with the soft padded interior floor, the crown of each rifle will always be protected.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineAdditional benefits of the Tru Rack interior include: a notch in the top shelf for storage of long firearms, adjustable side and top shelves, shelving upholstered with ultra-clean, lint-free automotive grade material, and the system may be used in half-left, half-right or all-rifle modes.

SUV Security Measures - For Tool Boxes and Gun Locks



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineH&R 1871, Inc. reminds hunters driving SUVs that many states have specific regulations about the storage of guns and ammo within the confines of a vehicle, and that “a responsible hunter should always contact the state law enforcement agency in any state you’re planning to hunt for a list of specific regulations on firearms ownership and transportation. Most regulations are more easily met in a normal car trunk or a pickup which has a lockable tool box bolted to the bed, but the SUV has no such non-accessible area. In many cases, a trigger lock applied to a cased firearm can help offset this concern.” H&R 1871, Inc. also points out that even if there aren’t state requirements, “it’s always a good policy to apply a trigger lock to a cased firearm when traveling. Many companies manufacture lockable, hard cases for firearms transport. Unfortunately the majority of these are too large or bulky for the hunter’s needs when afield. A soft case and a quality trigger lock can provide an excellent level of safety in this case.” Remember, too, that a gun case in view within a SUV can be an invitation to thieves. Always cover or disguise your gun case and other hunting related items if the vehicle is to be locked and parked away from your sight. As responsible gun owners,” H&R notes, “we must always be vigilant so our firearms and our ammunition never falls into the wrong hands.”



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineH&R 1871®, Inc., offers a specially priced trigger locking device, developed specifically to immobilize the trigger of all rifles and shotguns produced under its New England Firearms®, Wesson & Harrington®, or Harrington & Richardson® brands. Thisgun installed on any firearm when the chamber is loaded, and this trigger locking device shouldn’t be used on any other make or brand of firearm. Since December 1, 1999, all H&R 1871, Inc. shotguns and rifles have been shipped with this trigger locking device to assist in the safe storage of the firearm when it is not in use. For a limited time, current owners of the above mentioned firearms can directly purchase Trigger Guardian™ systems from the company.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineThe price per unit for current owners is $5.95 including shipping.

Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineHunter Safety System offers the lightest weight, most flexible harness to hit the market, the new Ultra-Lite Flex. Named for the freedom of movement it gives the hunter, the HSS Ultra-Lite Flex features a series of individual hexagons that allow padded comfort and unprecedented flexibility in any direction the hunter may twist or turn.

This new Flex stays comfortably snug to the body, which allows unrestricted movement from the time you put it on through the moment of making the shot. It also features the new HSS 1 1/4-inch upper-body webbing, tether and waist buckle, which replace heavier, bulkier material while continuing to offer extraordinary strength for complete safety and confidence while hunting off the ground.

Available in Realtree Xtra®, the new Ultra-Lite Flex improves upon the popular Ultra-Lite X-Treme and Ultra-Lite to offer the ultimate in lightweight safety, security and flexibility. Like all the Hunter Safety System harnesses, the new Ultra-Lite Flex comes standard with a lineman’s climbing strap, primary treestrap and a suspension-relief strap, which doubles as a deer-drag strap.

Weighing in at a mere 2 lbs., the new Ultra-Lite Flex is the ideal harness for anyone who has to travel a long distance to the treestand or who prefers to feel unencumbered while staying safe. With a suggested retail price of only $99.95—including a lineman’s climbing strap, a primary treestrap and a suspension-relief/deer-drag strap—the Ultra-Lite Flex will be available at retailers nationwide this spring.

New Hunter Safety System TreeStalker II



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineHunter Safety System has completely redesigned the TreeStalker harness. The new TreeStalker II has been reengineered to be lighter, safer and more comfortable than previous models—all without increasing the price.

By utilizing revolutionary smart fabrics that wick away moisture, maintain durability and reduce weight by up to 25 percent, the new Treestalker II is not only more comfortable, but it is also incredibly lightweight. For added comfort, this new harness features new Comfort-Touch edging around the neck area, and Right-FitÔ panels in the sides to allow the harness to comfortably expand for larger sizes, while remains snug and compact in the field.

While the TreeStalker II is lighter and more comfortable, most importantly, it is also safer. Designed with the new, thinner tether, the TreeStalker II reduces weight, yet it is stronger and provides more shock absorption during a fall than older models. As always, the patented Hunter Safety System of webbing eliminates dangerous dangling straps and weave-through buckles, and it is the easiest and most comfortable harness to put on, especially in the dark.

Available in Realtree Xtra, one of the most innovative camouflage patterns available today, this premium vest is available at retailers with the same $99.99 suggested retail price as the original TreeStalker that it replaces.

Hunter Safety System's Lineman's Belt to Keep You Safe



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineHunter Safety System now offers The Lineman's Belt. Although today's tree stands and accessories are stronger and safer than ever before, more hunters are injured each year in tree stand incidents than any other type of hunting accidents. Most all of these accidents and life changing injuries could have been avoided if the hunter had taken the advice of the experts and/or used the appropriate tree stand safety devices.

To protect the hunter during these times, Hunter Safety System offers The Lineman's Belt. The user simply wraps the belt around the tree and then snaps it directly onto the loops manufactured on the sides of the Hunter Safety System vest. The unique design of this belt not only distributes the pressure created from a fall but also provides a secure means that allows hunters the benefit of using their hands while hanging lock-on style stands. Accommodating trees with varying diameters is no problem either with the HSS Lineman's Belt. Adjustments can easily be made while the climb is taking place by simply sliding the lineman‚s belt through the locking knot located at the hunter's side.

Making the HSS Lineman's Belt even safer is the Quick Connect Tree Strap that comes packaged with each belt. Whenever a limb or obstacle is encountered during the climb, the hunter needs only to attach the Quick Connect and the vest's tether above the limb to stay safe before disconnecting the Lineman's Belt to proceed upward. The Lineman's Belt was designed to be worn in any tree stand situation while keeping the smart hunter secure.

The Lineman's Belt is made of a durable cotton/nylon material and is 10 feet long. It has a suggested retail price of $29.99.

Want More Wildlife?  Think Like A Farmer . . . Know What to Plant



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineAustin Delano says, "One of the biggest problems with warm season food plots is weed competition. Some are grasses and some broadleaf weeds, but they are all an eyesore and steal moisture and nutrients from your wildlife plots. Here are two of the most common food plot weeds in the south. It seems to be giving a lot of food plotters problems this year in their fields across the country. Most anyone who has spent time farming or food plotting is familiar with Johnson Grass. If you don't have any to deal with on your property, count yourself blessed. It is a notorious invasive weed that is very drought resistant, fast spreading, and can be tough to eliminate.

"Johnson Grass is a tall perennial grass that is adapted to a variety of habitats that range from old fields, to wetlands, farm land, and everything between. Johnson Grass is a very aggressive plant that spreads quickly through seeds and rhizomes, and competes heavily for root space in food plots and row crops. It also puts off a toxin that keeps other plants from being able to grow in close proximity. Johnson Grass can be controlled with non-selective herbicides such as glyphosate based Round-Up or grass specific herbicides including BioLogic's new Weed Reaper Grass Control or a chemical equivalent using clethodim as the active chemical.
 
"The key to controlling Johnson grass in plots is to spray when it is young (less than 18 inches) and in an aggressive growing stage.  Left untouched it will go to seed stage and grow to 5-8 feet tall, creating a scenario where a non-selective herbicide is your only choice. Mowing is not recommended especially if it is in a seed stage as this will only spread seeds and encourage new growth and spreading of rhizomes. If you spot Johnson Grass or any other unwanted invasive grasses in your plots this year, be sure to spray when they are young to get a good kill and control these unwanted plants. They can quickly overtake a plot and spoil your hard work.
 
"Another very common food plot weed in the south is the Cocklebur plant. This problem weed is a herbaceous annual easily recognized by its prickly bur like fruit that sticks to clothing and are most painful on accidental contact to skin. The burs, which contain two seeds, help spread the plants by clinging to animal fur and people's clothing. In North America, there are several species that grow, all which are very similar in appearance. In row crop fields, floodplains, and unattended fields, they can grow to be solid stands and are also very poisonous to livestock.
 
Cockleburs can become problems in many food plots, CRP, and other plantings that are meant for wildlife improvement. Cockleburs are readily controlled with the herbicides and should be sprayed and eliminated when young plants begin to develop. In annual summer legumes such as peas, beans, or lablab, cockleburs should be sprayed with imazamox which is soon available in BioLogic's Weed Reaper Broadleaf Control. 2,4DB is also a good choice of herbicide to kill cockleburs in legume plots, corn, and sorghum.
 
As big of a nuisance this plant has been to farmers and ranchers for so long, the plant has some unique characteristics that have led to some surprising discoveries. Known as a short day plant, cockleburs flower anytime a single day has less than 15.5 hrs of light. This stimulates the bloom and production of the burs. The plants ability to tell time so precisely has led to it being used in countless experiments and studies on plants response to day length and photoperiod.
 
Another less known fact about this problematic weed was its part in the invention of one of the most useful and well known fabrics in the world. This wonder fabric called Velcro was pioneered after a Swiss engineer noticed his wool socks and dogs fur were covered in the spiny fruits of the Cocklebur plant. After further investigation, the microscopic hook shape ends were revealed and their ability to stick to fabrics, specifically ones that had a closed loop. This process was duplicated using nylon fabric and called Velcro."

Keep Your Plot Clean 



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineOne of the most common problems in food plots, especially perennials, is weed competition. Weeds rob your plot of essential nutrients, water, and root space. Given time and opportunity, weeds will quickly mature, produce seed, and overtake a well intended food plot. The use of herbicides is one of the greatest tools a GameKeeper can utilize to keep weeds under control and get the most out of your plantings.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineHere are a few tips by Austin Delano to get the most from your efforts.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line1.      Read The Label-the information on the herbicide labels contain great info and will identify what weeds they control and what crops it is designed to protect.
2.      Spray when grasses or broadleaf weeds are young and thriving. If you wait to spray when they are tall and mature, the results will often be less than desirable. If weeds are already tall and maturing, mow first and return 7-10 days later to spray the new re-growth.
3.      Spray in good conditions. Cloudy and still days are best. Windy and rainy days do not make for good conditions to spray in.
4.      Make sure spraying equipment is functioning properly and carry some spare spray rig parts to the field. There's nothing worse than having a busted hose or clogged tip in the field and be without the tools to fix it.
5.      Make sure to add a surfactant or crop oil when called for, many grass specific herbicides do not work well without one.
6.      For optimal results, add M.E.E.N Green water soluble fertilizer to your tank mix when spraying selective herbicides like Biologic's new Weed Reaper Grass Control.  M.E.E.N Green will increase the effectiveness of the herbicide by helping the weeds readily trans-locate it to the roots for a good kill, at the same time it will foliar feed the plot with essential macro and micro nutrients.
7.      Know the size of the fields you are going to be spraying so you can apply the appropriate amount of solution. To practice and calibrate your sprayer, find a field and measure it with a GPS or use a range finder to determine the acreage. Fill your spray tank with just water and take note of the speed you travel and the amount of water you apply over the known area. This will help take a lot of guess work on applying the correct amount. Most herbicides work best when 12-20 gallons of water are used over an acre with the appropriate herbicide.
 
Another very common problem is the flush of weeds you get after planting warm season annuals such as soybeans, peas, or lablab. Anytime you disturb the ground with a piece of equipment like a disc, harrow, or tiller you are likely to get a fine crop of weeds that germinate from seeds that have been in your soil profile for years waiting on their chance to grow. Many times these weeds will outgrow the crop you have planted and end up choking it out. I typically use this sequence in the spring when planting my warm season annuals, keep in mind that glyphosate (round-up) is a contact and non residual herbicide. If it doesn't contact something green and growing it is basically in-active. It does not have any residual activity in the soil and will not affect seeds you are preparing to plant.
 
I generally spray the area to be planted after a good portion or all of the plot has a good flush of spring weeds. In the South this is usually around early to mid April. Wait around a week and go in and work the soil with a disc or tiller or whatever your primary tillage equipment is. This disturbance of the soil should create a new flush of weeds over the plot in a relatively short period of time, after I see a good carpet of weeds starting to emerge, I spray again with 41 % glyphosate (generic round-up). Wait just 3-5 days and lightly prepare the top couple 3-4 inches of soil again and plant. This second spray application seems to really cut down on early weed problems in spring planted plots. Giving the plot you are planting time to get established and canopy out to shade the soil will drastically cut down on the amount of weeds that can grow.

BERGER BULLETS



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line

Does Shot Placement Still Matter to Hunters?



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineWalt Berger insists on getting the most accuracy out of his rifle. Since 1953, he has spent much time and effort figuring out what makes a bullet shoot accurately. Today, Berger Bullets is a result of his dedication to achieve the highest level of accuracy and his dedication to accuracy is at the core of the Berger manufacturing process.
Since the key to accuracy is being consistent, each bullet is formed using one set of match grade dies, the highest grade of materials available, and hold their jacket thickness to a concentricity of .0003 or less on every lot of bullets produced. Using state-of-the-art pressure sensing technology allows Berger Bullets to provide the shooter bullets that are as consistant as possible.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineBullets are available in a wide variety of weight options from .17 caliber through .30 caliber. For big game hunting, try Berger Match VLD bullets. The VLD (Very Low Drag) is designed to provide a bullet with a high Ballistic Coefficient (BC). The VLD design allows the bullet to shoot flatter and be less affected by wind than conventional bullets. Combine the VLD design with Berger's tight consistency and you get a more accurate bullet resulting in more effective and repetitive shot placement.  By virtue of the small hollow-point and unique profile of VLDs, which incorporate a secant ogive, VLDs tend to delay expansion during penetration. All of the energy is spent inside the game animal, which puts the animal down quickly.

SLINGS/SWIVELS



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line

Vero Vellini Slings 

Vero Vellini Slings Are More Than Just Comfortable Rifle Totes 

Shooting aids increase accuracy, and they come in all shapes and sizes—from bags of sand to adjustable rests built from sturdy forged steel—but the most lightweight and expedient shooting aid in the field may just be the item that carries your rifle, the sling. World-renowned for its handcraftsmanship and comfort, Vero Vellini makes slings that will tighten up your field-expedient shooting position for increased accuracy this hunting season.

When properly employed, a Vero Vellini sling can create a solid base that ties the rifle to the body, all the while greatly reducing muscle fatigue during the hunt’s most critical harvesting moment. A simple wrap of the Vero Vellini sling around the support arm cinches the rifle down, creating a rock-solid shooting platform in any position. This is especially important when shooting from the often-dreaded standing position, as some hunting scenarios simply won’t allow a hunter to move into a more stable body situation like sitting, kneeling or prone. But even those positions are greatly enhanced by wrapping a properly adjusted sling wrapped around the support arm to tighten the rifle butt into the shooting shoulder.

While all Vero Vellini slings are a pleasure to carry the rifle into the field, as a shooting aid, the Classic Air Cushion Slings offer the most flexibility between positions, but by design their stretch is limited, thereby providing excellent support. The company’s Premium Leather Slings tend to be more rigid, due to the sturdiness of the thick, richly tanned cowhide, but their inner neoprene linings provide just enough give to achieve a solid shooting position when adjusted properly.

This hunting season, be sure of your shot with the added support of a Vero Vellini sling.  Vero Vellini slings range in price from $24.99 to $159.99, and they can be purchased conveniently online at www.vero-vellini.com.

Vero Vellini is the acknowledged leader in comfortable, handcrafted gun slings. For more than two decades, the company has been crafting these beautifully detailed and highly durable slings in Germany. Vero Vellini created the Air Cushion concept, which sandwiches neoprene and other natural and synthetic material to create an almost weightless feeling when carrying a firearm. The company also boasts the most slip-proof sling available from the use of a unique, highly durable rubber backing. Vero Vellini also manufactures fast-access cartridge cases and slings for binoculars and cameras. For more information on Vero Vellini, contact: Pioneer Research, 97 Foster Road, Moorestown, NJ 08057; call 800-257-7742; or visit www.vero-vellini.com.

Vero Vellini Classic Rifle Slings Available In Realtree MAX-5®

Vero Vellini, world renowned for its hand-crafted, comfortable slings, now has three of its popular Classic Air Cushion® rifle slings in the Realtree Max-5 camouflage pattern. The standard Wide-Top sling without quick attached swivels, the Wide-Top sling with swivels and the 1-inch Air Cushion sling with quick attach swivels will now be available with this new popular pattern.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line

The Vero Vellini sling is comfortable, has shock absorption offered from the unique Air Cushion design of Vero Vellini slings, and the handcrafted slings are not only beautiful, but provide superior durability for many years of field use and have an exceptionally clean design and beautifully detailed styling.

Available in a variety of colors and sizes that will accommodate any firearm, as well as Camouflage patterns for those desiring complete concealment, and blaze orange is available for those that need added safety color. All slings are available in the more basic black and green colors. Vero Vellini slings range in price from $24.99 to $159.99 and can be purchased conveniently online at www.gunslingsdirect.com.

The new Realtree Max-5 has been designed with waterfowlers in mind but can really be used for most hunting situations as it features a pattern of cattails, reeds, cane and grasses that blend into flooded marshes. The corn, wheat, oats and sunflowers in the pattern uniquely blend in open fields and the branches, twigs and leaves work perfectly in flooded timber.

These three new Classic Air Cushion slings are crafted from weather and thorn resistant ballistic nylon for maximum wear and durability. All the edges around the entire neoprene pad are piped to prevent fraying, and the ballistic nylon is carefully laminated to the neoprene surface for a smooth, even finish.

All three of the new Realtree Max-5 Classic rifle slings are available at retailers nationwide or conveniently online at www.gunslingsdirect.com. Suggested retail prices are $52.99 for the standard Wide-Top rifle sling and $54.99 for the Wide-Top with quick attach swivels and 1-inch Air Cushion sling with swivels.

Birchwood Casey® shoots new life into Shoot·N·C ® Reactive Target lineup



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineBirchwood Casey, the leader in reactive targets - including their popular Shoot·N·C products, has added fluorescent red aiming points to its extensive line of targets. The addition of the aiming point is the result of meeting the growing demand of shooting enthusiasts who require more target visibility when using optics. The bright red aiming point provides a contrasting color for open sights and also for crosshairs found in modern optics. An added benefit is that the new aiming dot also creates great contrast for laser and red dot scopes.

Just like the rest of the target face, the center aiming point will also "react" in a manner that allows the shooter to see exactly where their shot hit - instantly, and without the need for a bulky spotting scope.

Shoot·N·C Targets also come with repair "pasters" on each target sheet. Pasters allow the shooter to extend the life of their target by "repairing", or covering up existing bullet holes on the target so that they can be reused - giving the shooting enthusiast 20% more shots taken per target, and more value per target!

Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineThe G3 Sport Upland replaces the Sport 65 BPR, has more features, and sells for the previous price, including Beeper.

100% Real Hunting Television Show Eliminates Re-Created Hunting Scenes 



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineIf you’re tired of watching re-created hunting scenes and set-up videos, then there’s a new option for you. Bass Pro Shops’ 100% Real Hunting TV has a unique format that features 100% authentic hunts filmed just the way they happened in the field. Unlike most hunting TV shows that feature re-created scenes for the camera, Bass Pro’s new hunting show will show only authentic events that occurred and were filmed as they happened on the hunt.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineBass Pro’s hunting show sports a new name -- Bass Pro’s 100% Real Hunting TV to call attention to the shows realism and uniqueness. It features the Redhead Pro Hunting Team hunting across the globe. Unlike other shows, it will not feature pro hunters attempting to be actors. “Hunting with two cameras is pretty tough,” says Hunt Team member Bob Foulkrod. “It’s like a small posse going through the woods, but it’s working. The camera shadowing the hunter has gotten some pretty incredible footage, which will make some great TV. “It’s amazing what you can learn from 100% authentic shots. I’ve picked up things I was doing I never realized I did until I saw myself on the new show. I’m picking up hunting tips from studying the footage of the other Pro Team hunters. This is going to make a big difference in how the public views hunting TV.”



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineSteve Hargis, Bass Pro’s Director of Productions says, “Our Pro Team hunters have always disliked doing re-creations. They didn’t like ‘faking it.’ Our viewers have been looking for more realistic hunting TV, we just had to figure out how to give it to them. “Test audiences have been very excited about what they have seen. They are picking up on small things like eye movements, body language, and raw emotion. Stuff you would never see on re-created video. Realism draws audiences into the hunt and keeps them there. They are not distracted by awkward scene changes and re-creates. Our new format is a 100% improvement. It’s good for our audience and it’s good for hunting.”

Post Rut Tips



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineMost hunters quit hunting after the peak of the rut because they think they no longer have a chance for a big buck. What they don’t know is bucks still seek ready-to-breed does for weeks after the peak rut. Does that weren’t bred during the peak will come into estrus about a month later and bucks will be looking for them.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineDuring the post rut, focus on food because that’s where the does will be. Dominant bucks are extremely wary and often nocturnal so get in your stand an hour before first light. In the afternoon, stay in your stand until the last second of shooting hours. Remember that post rut bucks will be jumpy, very cautious and alert to every smell and sound but they aren’t invincible.

Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineIf your deer season is winding down and you still haven’t taken that big buck, don’t give up. Here are some things you can try to take that buck of a lifetime at the end of the season.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line• Don’t hunt where anybody else has hunted.
• Don’t hunt at times when everyone else has or is hunting.
• Use strategies no one else has tried.
• Move your stand to places neither you or anyone else has ever hunted.
• Now is also the time to get right into that bedding area you’ve been avoiding all

For Fall Turkey Hunting Success, You Need To Get Down-N-Dirty



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineFall turkey hunting can be as exciting as spring turkey season, but it certainly takes different technique and a lot of patience. Gobblers are not gobbling to mate at this time of year, but with some scouting and persistence, the birds can be put into a pattern, and your pay off can be great. According to champion caller and co-owner of Down-N-Dirty Outdoors game calls, Jason Kidd, “By far, one of my favorite and one of the most effective ways to hunt turkeys in the fall is by scattering a flock and calling them back. First, you locate a flock, and get into a position where you can effectively scatter it, Keep in mind, that for this tactic to work, you have to scatter the birds in all different directions. This means you have to get relatively close to the flock before you scare them off. Within about 20 minutes of scattering the flock, the woods will come alive with turkey sounds—yelps, kee-kees, cutting and cackles. This is when the stage is yours to put on a show. I like to yelp and kee-kee on a mouth call, and I even do some yelping and clucks at the same time on a friction call. Keep in mind that you want to command your presence and lead this show. The DND Arsenic three-reed mouth call from the Poison Series has long been my go-to for fall turkey hunting. It has the traditional cutter style cut with a small slash in the back that gives it a pitch that is pure turkey. It gives me a nice clear kee-kee followed up with some high-pitched raspy yelps. Simultaneously, I will be yelping, clucking or cutting on the DND Soul Crusher Slate call. Personally, I like the slate call because it is more forgiving.”

Fall turkey hunting is not only an opportunity to harvest a great bird, but also a time to really listen and learn from the turkey. Not as many hunters flock to the woods for turkey this time of year, so the competition from fellow hunters is less. Enjoy this time—get out there, and get Down-N-Dirty with some birds this fall.

Through their experience and determination, Down-N-Dirty Outdoors has come to offer hunters the most advanced line of game calls available today. From the unique-looking diaphragms to the exceptionally designed pot calls, the entire line is built by hand with one goal in mind: to create the finest quality, affordable game calls that absolutely mimic your prey. There are no gimmicks; no pretty faces; no bull. The calls from Down-N-Dirty Outdoors are just the finest calls available on the market today, and they will make you a more successful hunter now and in the years to come.

Seeing Deer Tips by Bob Foulkrod -- co-host of 100% Real Hunting on Versus Network®



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineThis may sound funny to someone who has never hunted deer, but one of the hardest things in deer hunting may be simply to see a deer that’s there to be seen. Mature bucks are seldom caught standing in the open in broad daylight. Instead, learn to look into and through bushes instead of at them. Try to pick bits and pieces of a deer out of the bush. With your eyes and binoculars, look not for a deer but for something different; a shape, color, line, shadow, reflection, or mass that doesn’t quite fit into the scene. The clue may be nothing more than a few inches of antler, a white horizontal belly, or the shiny blackness of an eye, and then all of a sudden the whole animal takes shape.

Waterfowl Hunting Tips With Hunter's Specialties® Pro Staff Member Denny Pitman



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineAccording to Denny Pitman, some of the mistakes made while hunting waterfowl is not using a mix of decoy species. "A lot of people hunt exclusively over mallard decoys, but if there are pintails, widgeons or gadwall around," he says, "use a few decoys of those species to make your spread more realistic. Another important point about using decoys is to be sure they are clean. Use your best looking decoys around the landing area you have created in your spread. It seems like pressured birds are looking for any excuse not to land. You are a lot better off using two dozen clean decoys than six dozen dirty ones."

Good camo is also very important. "You definitely need to blend in with your surroundings. The most important thing is to be sure your blind doesn't stand out. I have seen blinds in a cornfield that were brushed in with oak branches. Pressured ducks and geese will key in on anything that doesn't look natural and shy away."

As to using flags for geese, Pitman suggests 'going out and watching how geese land and how they flap their wings when they are on the ground. Many hunters try to imitate a spinning wing duck decoy when they flag and do more harm than good. Geese are a lot different than ducks. Try to imitate geese landing in the spread when the birds are a long way off. When they get close, switch over to mimicking the wing beats of geese on the ground stretching their wings."

To increase the odds of being successful hunting spring snow geese, Pitman advises that "Snow geese require a different decoy spread than Canada geese. Their behavior is different. You also can't just put a big blob of snow goose decoys in a field and expect them to land. I use a large number of decoys, but try to mix in full bodied, rag and silhouettes together. You still have to provide an opening in the spread for the birds to land. Snows will work the upper 1/3 of your spread, so put your best decoys there. That is also where your blinds and best callers should be. Snow geese are also susceptible to flagging. Remember, spring snows have been hunted hard, so the more realistic you can make things look, the better your chances. Since snow geese are on the move, it is important to do some scouting the day before you set up. Once they clean the feed up on a field, they will leave, so they may not be in the same place more than a couple of days. Moving and setting up again can be a lot of work, but it can also be well worth it."

Hunter's Specialties® Predator Hunting Tips With Pro Staff Member Al Morris



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LinePredator hunting is one of the fastest growing segments of the hunting market. Al Morris, a champion coyote caller and member of the Hunter's Specialties Pro Staff notes, "I know it sounds cliché, but you need to hunt where predators live. Scouting is king in my world. If I see coyote or bobcat sign in an area while I am hunting other game, I make a point to log it in so I can return to these places later. Tracks and scat help you see where the animals are concentrated. Coyotes will serenade you at night, as well, giving away their general location.

"After locating a good spot, proper set up is important. You need to learn to find spots that make it easy for a predator to approach your position without seeing or smelling you. In a perfect world, the sun would be at your back and the wind in your face, but you will seldom find those conditions. Use the terrain to your advantage and remember predators will usually always try to approach from down wind. If possible, try to have a shooting lane down wind. I like to use Hunter's Specialties Scent-A-Way products to minimize my human scent. This often gives me closer shots because even though they are down wind, they don't smell me."

According to Al, "The easiest calls are, of course, the electronic ones. The Johnny Stewart Attractor and PreyMaster Callers are durable and affordable and feature the authentic Johnny Stewart sounds, which I consider some of the best available. It is always good to learn to blow a mouth call as well. Don't get too hung up on technique, because everyone is a little different in the way they call. Just learn to put plenty of emotion into the calling series. Remember, you are trying to re-create the sound of an animal in distress."

"Regarding equipment, I usually recommend first-time predator hunters get a good caller. After that, it is decent camo, something to sit on, and your favorite deer rifle or turkey gun. You may want to get a rifle more suited to predators later on, but start out with a minimum of equipment until you decide to get more serious. It's important to learn to hunt outside the box; scout in areas where others do not. Sometimes a hunter that avoids the wide open areas where most people go will find success in thicker cover using a shotgun. Don't be afraid to try different sounds. If predators have heard plenty of dying rabbit calls in your area, use a bird or fawn distress to get their interest."

Turkey Hunting Tips



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineOutdoor journalist Mark Kayser, a member of the Wranger ProGear Outdoor Advisory Team, has a good tip if you attend a turkey-calling competition. “Be sure to take note of the realistic tones and cadences used, but be conservative in your presentation. Don‚t mimic the loud and contentious calling style.  Less is best when you want to bring a gobbler into white-of-the-eye range. Calling too much risks having a gobbler stop and wait for the turned-on hen to arrive.”

Spring Turkey Hunting Success With Eddie Salter Of The Hunter’s Specialties® Pro Staff



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line“Sometimes people get the idea that the morning hunt is over after the first hour or hour and a half. This just isn’t true. If you are not successful early, be patient and listen. If that old gobbler is with some hens, he may start gobbling again later in the morning and you can call him in. If you are in a state that allows all day hunting, don’t overlook the afternoon when the hens have left to go lay their eggs.”

A common mistake hunters make is “Hiding too well in your set up. If you are hidden to the point that you can’t easily swing your gun for a shot, or can’t see the approaching gobbler, you will miss a lot of opportunities to take a bird. Use good camouflage and depend on it to hide you.”

Regarding calling “Learn to use multiple turkey calls. Don’t depend on just one. Each turkey may react differently from one call to another. The same bird may like a different call on any given day. And, if you use decoys, “Decoys can be very beneficial, especially if you are hunting around fields. The gobbler hears calling and expects to see a hen when he is coming in. I like to use two hens and a jake. A dominant bird will often come running when he thinks a jake may be breeding hens.”

If yoou don't hear any gobbling “On silent or bad weather days I will go where I have seen or worked turkeys in the past. It is a good time to set up a blind and make an occasional call. If turkeys frequent the area, they will more than likely come by. Another tactic if you have plenty of ground is to keep moving, or ‘run and gun’. Keep a close eye out for birds, especially in fields and openings.”

*Set up against a tree that is greater in diameter than the width of your shoulders and taller than your head whenever possible for maximum safety.
*Should you see other hunters (especially close to your line of sight) call out to them in a loud, clear voice. Their presence has already compromised your location and a soft call may only confuse them instead of alerting them to your presence.

KNOW YOUR BIRD

Before you shoot, be sure the bird is a gobbler. Don't depend on the beard to determine the turkey's sex since some hens do have beards. The beard of a wild turkey is a group of hair-like feathers ranging from 2 inches to 12 inches in length located on the center of the breast. Bearded hens are not legal game during the spring season.

During the spring breeding season, toms or gobblers are not difficult to distinguish from hens. Look closely at the head of the bird as it comes to your calling. Gobblers' heads are naked and very colorful. Their heads are a brilliant red, white and blue. The head of a wild turkey hen is blue-gray in color and may have a line of feathers up the back of the neck. Hens are not as colorful as gobblers.

After checking the head color, look at the color of the breast feathers. Dark black feathers indicate a tom, while the hen appears to be dark brown. If the head of the turkey is naked and colorful, the breast is black and the bird has a beard, you may be confident it is a gobbler. If you have any doubts, simply don't shoot.

Hunter Safety System Important 'Stayin, Safe Reminders



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineYou're likely to be spending a lot of time scouting trails, checking cameras and getting ready to hang treestands. But before you hang those stands, Hunter Safety System has a new list of 'Stayin‚ Safe Reminders' to help you enjoy an accident-free hunting season.

First, inspect your tree to ensure it is alive and straight with a circumference that is within the size limits prescribed by the manufacturer of your specific treestand. Do not attempt to climb or attach a treestand to a leaning tree.

Second, sacrificing safety for economy can be a very costly mistake, so never use a homemade stand. Only use treestands that are certified to Treestand Manufacturers Association (TMA) standards.

Third, always wear a full-body harness when installing your stands, steps and accessories. If you are installing a lock-on-style stand, use a lineman's-style belt in conjunction with your full-body harness.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineBe sure to check the Hunter Safety System web site each month for important, life-saving safety tips. Log on to www.huntersafetysystem.com and click 'Stayin‚ Safe Reminders' at the bottom of the page.

Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineBuilt at the request of customers, the new Hunt Comfort Double Gun is designed for hunters who want a more comfortable option for their two-man stands. The most spacious seating platform built by Hunt Comfort, the Double Gun, measuring 13 inches by 40 inches, fits most wide-format hunting stands.

The Double Gun is a new version of the Hunt Comfort L-Core cushion series announced last year with the popular Fat Boy Lite. The dual-density cushioning element provides three inches of generous, cradling support that holds form under pressure and eliminates the "bottoming out" effect felt with other cushions. Softness is enhanced with Hunt Comfort's waterproof and durable Comfort TEX outdoor seating fabric. The six-pound, seven-ounce Double Gun is lightweight for easy carrying and set up.

L-Core, light core formula, is Hunt Comfort's more affordable answer to how to build a lighter seat core without gel content. Introduced in May 2006, the L-Core formula is a lamination of two foam specifications only available from Hunt Comfort. These foams are built with high-tech chemistry and cost less than gel-based cores. Compared to less-expensive foam cushions of the same dimension, these seats feel more substantial. Super-plush soft seating with the benefit of outstanding support is the hallmark of L-Core seating.
The Double Gun, available in Mossy Oak® Break-Up® is backed by a three-year warranty and has a suggested retail price of $69.95. Get yours at select sporting goods stores or by calling 888-757-3232.

HUNTER SAFETY SYSTEMS



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line

Hunter Safety System Introduces the New and Improved LIFELINE™



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineHunter Safety System continues to set the standard in hunter safety products with the introduction of its new HSS-LIFELINE. Incorporating a woven-in reflective strip that makes locating a treestand in the dark as simple and quick as pressing a flashlight switch, the LIFELINE also houses its Recon Carabiner in a new sound-dampening Cow Bell Cover for absolute stealth while climbing and hunting.

Statistics prove that 86 percent of all treestand accidents occur while climbing in and out of the treestand, and when properly used in conjunction with safety harnesses approved to TMA standards, the HSS-LIFELINE is the most critical piece of equipment to prevent those accidents. With the LIFELINE, the hunter stays attached to the tree from the moment feet leave the ground until they safely return.

An exclusive feature on the new LIFELINE is the Cow Bell Cover that prevents the carabiner from clanging against the ladder or stand. The Cow Bell Cover is made of soft yet durable silicone, and it completely conceals the carabiner after hooking up the harness tether. Also new to the LIFELINE is a reflective strip incorporated into the rope. When hit with the light from a flashlight, the LIFELINE lights up, making the stand much easier to find in the dark, but it remains virtually invisible during the day.

The HSS-LIFELINE completely protects the treestand hunter from the risk of life threatening injury when getting into and out of the stand and is hands down the simplest, safest way to stay attached to the tree from the ground to the stand, during the hunt and back again. The LIFELINE accommodates stands up to 30 feet high, and the Recon Carabiner is rated at 3,500 pounds.

While the quality and value have increased, the price has not. The suggested retail price for a single LIFELINE is $39.95, and a three-pack is $99.95. The new HSS-LIFELINE is available at all major sporting retailers and online at www.huntersafetysystem.com.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineThe HSS-Hybrid quickly became one of the most popular safety harnesses in the Hunter Safety System lineup after its introduction in 2012. The company has taken the Hybrid design to a new level by incorporating its Flex Technology into the upper portion of the harness to create the all-new HSS-Hybrid Flex. The Hybrid Flex is extremely comfortable to wear, and it offers hunters unrestricted freedom of movement in the upper body combined with the functionality of a multi-pocketed vest on the lower portion for the best of both worlds.

The Hybrid Flex features 1.25-inch upper-body webbing, tether, and waist buckle. The upper portion of the Hybrid Flex harness is wrapped in a series of individual padded hexagons for comfort and breathability, and soft-touch edge piping resists abrasion around the neck. The Hybrid Flex was designed to be comfortable while sitting and standing, without the need for adjustments once in the stand.

Made of soft, quiet and water-resistant Tricot “smart” fabrics, the lower portion features two zippered security pockets, two hand-warmer pockets, and two deep-well pockets that all add up to provide plenty of storage space for your hunting necessities. The Hybrid Flex also has a new mesh interior pocket that’s just the right size to keep a smart phone handy for both convenience and safety. Removable binocular straps allow you to keep binoculars, rangefinder, calls or other key hunting items at your fingertips. The straps can easily be removed and safely stored when not in use.

The patented HSS harness design eliminates dangerous dangling straps and weave-through buckles, and the lighter, thinner Flex Technology materials are even stronger than the materials that they replaced. The new Hybrid Flex weighs in at just 2.5 lbs., and it meets or exceeds all standards set by the Treestand Manufacturers Association.

Featuring Realtree® Xtra™ the HSS Hybrid Flex has the same great price of $129.95 as the original HSS-Hybrid. The Hybrid-Flex package includes a lineman’s climbing strap, an adjustable treestrap, a suspension-relief/deer-drag strap and instructions, and is available at major sporting goods retailers nationwide and conveniently online at www.hssvest.com.

Take The Worry Out Of Hanging Stands With The Tree Stand Setter Hoist From Hunter’s Specialties®



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineBeing able to safely and quickly install lock-on tree stands has always been a challenge. Hunter’s Specialties® has taken the worry out of the process with their new Tree Stand Setter Hoist.

The hoist consists of an “L” bracket that straps to the tree, a locking ratchet pulley with 45 feet of rope, a safety orange carrying bag, and instructional DVD.

After installing climbing sticks or steps to the desired stand height, hunters can attach the “L” bracket to the tree. The ratchet pulley is then hooked to the bracket and enough rope is let down to hook to the stand. Hunters can then climb down and hoist the stand into position. This eliminates trying to hold the stand with one hand while securing it to the tree. The ratchet pulley locks into place while you work and can easily be released for use. Once the stand is locked on, the “L” bracket can be left on the tree for a bow or accessory holder.

The new Tree Stand Setter Hoist from Hunter’s Specialties makes hanging tree stands safer, easier, and more enjoyable. Suggested retail price is $49.99.

VIDEOTAPING HUNTS



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line

Tips For Videotaping Your Hunt With Phillip Vanderpool



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineMore and more hunters are videotaping their hunts or their friend’s hunts these days. With turkey season just around the corner, here's what Hunter’s Specialties Pro Staff member and professional videographer Phillip Vanderpool had to say about some tips for taping your hunt.

To ensure up have good footage of their hunt, “Practice using the manual focus on your camera and learn how to use it. If you use the auto-focus feature, the camera will be focusing on things close to you and not on the approaching turkey. I like to manually focus on an object like a tree at the distance where I think the turkey will come in. Then when I see the bird, I can get him in focus quickly. On most cameras you adjust the focus knob clockwise as the bird walks toward you and counterclockwise as he walks away. If you can use a tripod, the shots will be more stable and zooming in and out smoother. Also remember to zoom in and out slowly for better effect. If you are taping for another hunter, set up close enough that you can communicate with each other. The cameraman should be able to see the same thing as the hunter.”

Essential items to carry with you:

“Be sure and carry extra tapes and batteries. You should shoot plenty of scenery and ‘set-up’ shots of the hunt. I like to record the whole experience, not just the kill. The last thing you need, though, is to have a battery go dead at the moment the bird comes in. Get a good lens cleaning cloth and make sure there is nothing on the lens when you are filming. I always throw a trash bag in my pack to cover the camera in case it rains.

“The only way to get good at filming is to get out and do plenty of it. Learn from your mistakes and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Eventually you will get comfortable running a camera and get some great footage that you will be able to enjoy for years to come. Another thing I always encourage hunters to do is take plenty of photos with a still camera as well. Take along some Scent-A-Way towels or wipes to clean up your animal after the hunt and then shoot plenty of photos. Use the flash if it is cloudy or shady to get rid of shadows. With today’s digital cameras, it doesn’t cost anything if you have to delete photos, so take plenty. Learning how to compose photos and work with lighting will help make you a better videographer as well. ”

WATERFOWL RESEARCH

Delta Waterfowl and Mossy Oak® Team Up for Waterfowl Research



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineDelta Waterfowl has announced a new partnership with Mossy Oak to support Delta's decades-long commitment to waterfowl research on behalf of North American waterfowlers. Mossy Oak has donated grant money to bolster Delta's ongoing predator-management research in North Dakota by Louisiana State University student Matt Pieron, who is seeking his Ph.D. For the last two years, Pieron has been using Delta's numerous predator-reduction blocks in North Dakota to test for density dependence in ducks, a natural force that scientists say tends to regulate population size. In short, Pieron's work will test for the effects of duck density on duck production.

Delta Waterfowl has been managing predators in North Dakota, since the early 1990s, in targeted areas where duck breeding densities are highest. This year Delta has expanded its predator-management research program into South Dakota and Saskatchewan. Countless studies have demonstrated that predator control is a cost-effective management tool to offset nest failures and supplement existing habitat.

CAPE COD WEATHER GLASS



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label Line

Tired of relying on inaccurate weather forecasts? Do what I did -- buy a Cape Cod Weather Glass. It’s a fun way to predict weather changes, and just as sailors who navigated clipper ships had to rely on weather glasses to warn of approaching storms, today’s weather glasses can be even more accurate than the weather station’s news. All you have to do is watch the rise and fall of colored water in the glass. Predicting weather up to 24 hours away, a rise means a storm is approaching; a fall means clear weather.



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineAvailable from Gardener’s Supply Company (128 Intervale Road, Burlington, VT05401; 1-800-427-3363), it’s available in a brass holder or black holder for $26.95 plus postage.

Davis Instruments Ultrasonic Wind & Temperature Meter Offers High Accuracy



Browning Introduces Five New Knives to the Popular Black Label LineSailors and boaters can now measure wind and temperature using a handheld device with no moving parts and nothing to wear out or break. The sophisticated WindScribe from Davis Instruments uses patented ultrasonic technology to read wind speed, temperature and wind chill.  An ultrasonic wind barrel employs advanced sensors and microprocessor circuitry.

Simple to operate, the portable WindScribe just has to be pointed into the wind. The versatile unit calculates wind speed from 0 to 150 mph, highest positive speed (headwind), lowest negative wind speed (tailwind), 5-second average and running average. Users can select from mph, km/h, m/s (meters per second), f/s (feet per second), f/m (feet per minute) or knots. It's accurate within ±3%.

The state-of-the-art WindScribe can determine current temperatures from -40° to +150°F, maximum and minimum temperature and wind chill. The precision instrument measures temperatures in tenths of a degree and can also display temperatures in °C.

An easy-to-read, large LCD display has an update interval of 1.25 seconds. Convenient buttons allow for quick change of temperature and wind display modes and units. Compact, the 5" L x 3" W x 9/10" D unit weighs only 4 oz. The resilient unit is constructed from durable ABS plastic. A CR2032, 3-volt lithium cell battery has a life over 600 hours. To save power, after 5 minutes of no button use and zero wind speed the unit will automatically shutdown.

The user-friendly WindScribe doesn't require calibration.  For multiple application and installation options, the unit includes a lanyard, tripod mount and mounting bracket.

The suggested retail price of the innovative WindScribe from Davis Instruments is just $129. Incredibly handy, the WindScribe is an advantageous tool in a variety of fields and sports, including windsurfing, aviation, mountaineering, weather forecasting and numerous other uses.
