Lock Down Scents By Boar Down

boardown

The company that brought you the first 3D Hog Decoy  continues to innovate and they have come out with an ingenious scent bottle. I don’t know about you but I have gotten scent on my gloves and hands from spray bottles and regular bottles dripping or not sealing properly. No one likes a doe urine scented backpack either.

Applicator and scent wick in one!

Boar Down solved this problem with the patent pending Lock Down Scent bottle with applicator tip. You can wipe scent on branches, rocks, your boots or any where you want the animal to stop and smell. After you have applied the scent with the sponge the included string allows you to hand the bottle creating a scent wick. There is enough string to loop even on large branches.

Enough string to hand on a large branch.

Placing the bottle by your trail camera can bring the animals in or you can place it as an attractant and distance marker for hunting. The contents can freeze so if you are hunting the late season make sure to take the bottle with you when you leave for the day.

The bottle does not leak even when tossed about in your backpack or shoved in your pocket for checking trail cameras.

The Lock Down Scents come in a variety of scents for hog and deer hunting or even hog trapping.

ACU Archery Lock

logos

The highly visible Econo Lok deters dry fires and theft. Lock through the d-loop to prevent the Lok from being moved up the string.

“Are you Locked, or Loaded?”

It seems that the  first instinct that some people have when they see a bow is to pick it up wrap their fingers around the string and try to draw it, even if they have no intention or permission to shoot it. Protection is needed for your bow to keep curious friends, children, customers and TSA agents from potentially damaging your bow or themselves. Zip ties can be easily cut and replaced so the solution would have to be a reusable keyed lock.

ACU Archery introduced their Archery Safety Lock after seeing a need to protect their investments in their own store and their customer’s homes. Highly visible, the ACU lock deters anyone from drawing a bow. It can be locked on to the string or cam the ACU Lock works for both compound bows and compound crossbows. The ACU Lok also works in securing your bow when you are out of the field is a requirement in some states, check your state laws.

IMG_3017

The ACU Lok can secure cams as well to prevent draw on a compound bow and compound crossbow.

Theft deterrent is another use with its high visibility and its ability to be used with a cable to be secured to an object.

The ACU Lock comes in two styles, molded Enoco ACU Lok and Aluminum ACU Lock.

The Econo ACU Lok is sturdy and great protection at a minimal cost and is a great option for those that have multiple bows to protect such as archery programs, pro shops or archery passionate families. Available in Orange MSRP $10.99 or Pink MSRP $11.99

The Aluminum ACU Lok is key operated, has all aluminum construction, with Teflon impregnated anodizing and laser engraved. It also has the ability to be customized with most bow manufacturer’s logos at an additional cost. Available in black, blue, green, red, orange MSRP $29.99, pink MSRP $31.99 and Lost Camo MSRP $36.99.

Alien Nitro by Martin Archery

martin logoalien_camo_large

Introduced for 2014 the Alien Nitro is truly out of this world!

With an incredibly light 3.5 pounds, axle to axle of 32” and its sleek design makes the Alien a perfect hunting bow for both women and men. Accommodating draw lengths between 25.5” and 30.5”, the Alien’s smooth draw and forgiving 7” brace height combined with the adjustable 80% let off creates a fast 335fps IBO. The parallel limbs are offered in peak draw weights of 50, 60 and 70 pounds.

Martin’s vibration escape system components work together to make the Alien one of the quietest bows in the world. The shock suppressor and the string silencers decrease noise and vibration but Martin doesn’t stop there. Embedded in the riser are 3 of Martin’s exclusive Vibration Escape Modules (V.E.M.) with suspended steel stabilizing weights and the Integrated V.E.M. Arrow Shelf combine good looks and function by absorbing shock and decreasing vibration.

The lean riser is artistically crafted with details that are woven together so subtly that what looks simple from a distance is incredibly intricate close up. The alien themed details include ovals that bring to mind UFOs, alien eyes and even the Alien logo etched into the wood centered in the comfortable and solid grip. Along with the decorative details there is a seemingly small detail that makes a huge difference for a shooter, there are 3 holes for sight installation. The flexibility that this feature allows is a major innovation for optimum sight placement.

The Alien Nitro is available in camo, carbon, red, and white and has an MSRP of $934.99

Martin Archery Bows are Proudly Made in the USA by a company with an over 60 year history and dedication to quality and customer service.

Quick Knot by UPPER HAND

logo

The only thing worse than not seeing any fish while bowfishing is not being able to get back to shooting quick enough when you are surrounded by fish. Losing an arrow, breaking a nock or tip used to mean being out of the game for many valuable minutes while you try to securely tie a new arrow on. Now, with the introduction of the Quick Knot, that time has been reduced to mere seconds.

IMG_3106

Quick Knot by UPPER HAND

The Quick Knot is a simple yet genius connector that is made from spring tempered 320 stainless steel wire that creates a secure connection by taking the place of  a knot, functioning similarly to a fishing tackle swivel but one piece that will not open or break apart.

Easily change arrow in seconds!

Strong and secure connection.

Even the installation of the Quick Knot is so easy you can go from package to ready to fish in less than a minute; all you have to do is tie a knot.

???????????????????????????????

From package to ready to fish in seconds, all you have to do is tie a knot.

The Quick Knot was developed by two brothers with a passion for the outdoors and a truly innovative spirit.

Not only does the Quick Knot solve the quick arrow change, it has many other benefits as well. If you shoot a pass-through on a fish, you can quickly detach the arrow and pull the string back through instead of trying to thread an arrow nock first back through a flopping fish. Benefits also include storing and transporting your bow or big fish/alligator floats without the arrow attached.

The Quick Knot is truly a game changer when it comes to speed and convenience in the bowfishing arena. No more cutting your line every arrow change or trying to pick apart a knot that has been tightened down by reeling in hundreds of fish.

 

UPPER HAND put together a great instructional video.

M-Pro 7 Tactical Soft-Sided Kit

One afternoon in late September, while hunting black bear in Maine, I was able to fill my tag with my first bear. As I lowered my rifle from my tree stand, the rope slipped from my hands and my rifle stuck barrel first in the soft earth like a flagpole. When I climbed down and retrieved my rifle, there was a solid dirt plug jamming my barrel.

I returned to the lodge and rummaged until I found a rod that would fit into the rifle barrel to dislodge the plug. I immediately began my search for a travel size cleaning kit to take on my hunts. After searching several stores, both in person and online, I became frustrated with the lack of finding a complete cleaning kit that was small enough and that came with a metal rod versus a metal cable.

Compact and light weight, this kit has everything you need.

Woodland Buck by Rinehart Targets

Shooting at a flat target is great for improving accuracy and dialing in your sight but there is no better way to prepare for a hunt than using a 3D target of the actual animal you are going to be hunting. Knowing the anatomy of the game animal being pursued is critical in assisting the hunter in making a quick clean kill.

For deer hunters, the Woodland Buck by Rinehart is a great 3D target for practice and perfecting each shot. The Woodland Buck’s features allows for an archer to shoot and review how accurate the shot placement is. Knowing where to place your shot in the simulated vitals on the Woodland Buck and practicing for perfect shot placement allows you to be confident when the moment of truth arrives in the stand.

Woodland Buck
The Woodland Buck’s body is completely molded from strong Solid FX Foam™ with no fillers ensuring archers receive the best value for the price point.

The Woodland Buck is double-sided with the left side featuring visible outlines of the heart, lung, liver, intestines, as well as the shoulder and leg bones. The right side features the visible outlines of the shoulder, legs and intestines with a 3D cut out of the heart, lung, liver for higher details and visibility aiding in precise accuracy of the vitals.

IMG_3251
Left side with outlines of vitals, guts and shoulder bones.

The target body is completely molded from strong Solid FX Foam™ with no fillers, ensuring archers receive the best value for the price point. The target’s vitals feature Rinehart’s exclusive patented replaceable locking insert, made of Solid Rinehart “Self Healing” foam. This self-healing foam is the same material that is in the Rinehart targets that were selected in 2012 by the International Bowhunting Organization (IBO) to be used exclusively as the target provider for IBO National and World Events.

IMG_3249
Right side with cut out vital area for easy viewing at greater distances.

The self healing vital core is approved for field tips, fixed and expandable broadheads on carbon, aluminum and wood arrows shot from traditional bows, compound bows and even crossbows. Pulling the arrows is extremely easy; according to the manufacturer archers will not need any lubricants, gimmicks or pullers. The foam will heal itself within 10 seconds; ready to be shot again over and over. Not only will the replaceable core feature allow archers to save money but it will allow the target to last for years to come.Even hits to the main body seem to have “self-healing” properties. I have hit my target outside of the vital area and the hole is hardly noticeable.

The Woodland Buck is designed to simulate the body structure of a 100lb mature 8-point buck. The antlers and head are removable for easy storage and portability. Included with the buck are two metal stakes for easy set up and stabilization of your target. Weighing approximately 16 pounds, moving the target out for practice is very easy.  

The Woodland Buck has a MSRP of $179.99 and the replaceable insert is $51.99. The products are available at select Rinehart dealers and online stores.
