10 Innovative Bowhunting Products for 2012

With every new year comes more bowhunting goodies from around the industry. Now that we're a couple months into 2012, we've decided to take a look at 10 of the most innovative new products to hit the market, including some hot new bows. Bet you can't wait to try these out for yourself -- we sure can't!

Big Green Targets

Made from heat-bonded layered foam, Big Green Targets' archery targets are long lasting and totally weatherproof. The two-sided targets are made from 100 percent recycled foam, and can be used for both standing and hanging, and can also be used with broadhead arrows. With excellent stopping power and easy arrow remover, these targets are a must-have in the backyard or at the range.

Bear Archery Anarchy

Want a bow that's both durable and lightweight? Bear Archery Products has you covered with the brand new Bear Archery Anarchy. This bow features dual stainless steel sealed bearings with 25- to 31.5-inch draw length in half-inch increments, along with a 4x4 roller guard for a smoother draw. What's more, the Anarchy weighs in at just 3.8 pounds with a 35.25-inch axle-to-axle and a 7.25-inch brace height, allowing for complete control in the field.

Bowtech Insanity CPX

New from Bowtech is the Bowtech Insanity CPX, which amps up the technologies previously used by the Destroyer and Invasion CPX. With some of the best factory strings in the industry, the Insanity CPX comes with a 6-inch brace height and a 32-inch axle-to-axle, and features an amazing 98-ft-lbs. of kinetic energy. Not only is this a fast bow, but it's a fast bow you can control.

G5 Prime Series

G5 introduced its brand new G5 Prime Series, featuring two models: the Centroid LR and the Shift LR. Both bows feature Prime's Parallel Cam Technology, offering more consistency and accuracy. Both bows also feature the forged 7000 series aluminum riser, making them lighter without sacrificing durability.

IQ BowSight

It's fairly common to see accuracy fall dramatically at 40 yards or more, but the brand new IQ BowSight looks to solve that. Using Retina Lock technology, the IQ BowSight puts the shooter in perfect alignment every time, offering instant feedback every time the shooter torques the bow. Once the dot is centered, fire away. Quick and easy to use, what's not to love about that?

Moultrie M-80XT and M-80 Black

Moultrie rolled out two brand new trail cameras for the new year. Succeeding the popular M-80 camera, the Moultrie M-80XT features motion freeze, allowing for clearer images at night, plus an updated Plot Stalker smart time-lapse mode and a new fast-fire mode. The M-80 Black features a true black flash that is undetectable to the human eye — there's no chance of spooking big game or trespassers with this camera.

Realtree RT Edge

Soda bottles are probably the last thing you think of wearing while you're up in that stand. Nevertheless, Realtree rolled out its newest line of camo, RT Edge, made from — you guessed it — recycled soda bottles. While spun from recycled plastic, the fabric is soft and quiet, and feels no different than other polyester blends. Featuring base layers, waterproof outerwear and everything in between, this camo gives whole new meaning to the term 'œgoing green.'

Stealth Cam Drone

Can you see that big buck now? If your camera is powered with a Verizon cellular modem, chances are you can, and that's just what you'll get with the Stealth Cam Drone. This new camera allows you to check your camera remotely in real time from your computer or mobile device. The Drone also offers a control panel that allows you to view, download or delete images, change camera settings, check batteries and memory levels, and more.

Hoyt Carbon Element RKT

Combining its award-winning carbon bow with the lightning fast RKT cam, Hoyt rolled out its brand new Hoyt Carbon Element RKT for 2012. The RKT cams feature Ergo Draw technology, allowing for a smoother draw by adjusting the cam profile. In addition, the tough, hollow carbon tube riser offers a lightweight, high-performance setup in addition to excellent appearance. The Carbon Element RKT features a 32-inch axle-to-axle with a 6.75-inch brace height, and shoots at speeds up to 330 FPS.

Bushnell Gforce 1300 Arc

Want a precise, yet compact, laser rangefinder? Bushnell's got you covered with its brand new Bushnell Gforce 1300 Arc. Featuring angle range compensation, the Gforce measures in terms of true horizontal distance between the shooter and target, ranging out to 1,300 yards reflective, 900 yards to objects and 500 yards to deer.
