MSRP: $29.99 - $100 | onxmaps.com

Rage X-TREME 4 Blade

Rage x-treme 4 blade

MSRP: $34.99/2-pack | ragebroadheads.com


Montana Decoy Deer Rump

Montana Decoy Deer Rump

The Deer Rump from Montana Decoy is a great decoy at a great price. It weighs 32 oz., folds to a size that will easily fit inside your daypack, and comes with two teaser tails that move in the breeze to further fool whitetail bucks. This is definitely something you’ll want to add to your bowhunting arsenal, especially during the rut.

MSRP: $70 | montanadecoy.com

Scott Quick-Shot

Scott Archery Quick-Shot

The Scott Quick-Shot is a single-caliper release with a roller-sear design that produces crisp trigger breaks. It has a leather buckle strap and a rope connector, which allows you to adjust it to the exact length you prefer. This feature makes a big difference in overall shot execution.

MSRP: $45 | scottarchery.com


Lumenok HD Orange Combo Pack

MSRP: $49.99 | lumenok.com

Bee Stinger MicroHex

BeeStinger Microhex

Bee Stinger brings stabilization to a new level with the MicroHex. Available in 6”, 8”, and 10” lengths, the MicroHex uses proprietary Countervail Technology — a material integrated into the carbon rod that substantially dampens noise and vibration. The MicroHex is also equipped with three independent 1-oz. end weights, and its micro-diameter profile minimizes wind drift and improves stability. The MicroHex is compatible with all current Bee Stinger hardware mounts, including the new MicroHex Counter Slide that takes bow balance even further.


MSRP: $74.99 | beestinger.com

BLOCK 6X6

Block Targets 6x6

It’s pretty tough to beat a BLOCK 6X6 for dependability. This 18”x18”x16” target is designed to be shot at on all six sides, which provides years of usage. Sporting a bunch of different aiming points, it’s pretty darn hard to wear this target out.

MSRP: $110 | blocktarget.com

YETI Camo Rambler

YETI Camo Rambler

Need a drink-holder that keeps hot stuff hot and cold stuff cold for hours, and looks cool too? Then pick up the new 36-oz. Camo Rambler from YETI. It’s covered in throwback camo, is dishwasher safe, and is perfect for an all-day hunt during the November rut.

MSRP: $55 | yeti.com

Trophy Taker Tripwire

Trophy Taker Tripwire

With the Trophy Taker Tripwire, you’ll get an accurate drop-away rest at a price that’s pretty darn hard to beat. Lightweight and tough, it’s driven by your bow’s buss cable and provides maximum fletching clearance for better downrange accuracy. Windage and elevation are adjustable, and a built-in dampening system guarantees a quiet draw and release. It’s available right and left-handed.

MSRP: $39.99 | trophytaker.com

Browning Trail Cameras Command Ops Pro

Browning Trail Cameras Command Ops Pro

With the Command Ops Pro, you’ll get crisp 14MP pictures day or night, as well as 720p HD video with sound (5 seconds–2 minutes). The .5-second trigger speed combined with the 70’ flash range means this camera won’t miss much, if anything, that passes in front of it. Program it to take up to four Multi Shot or Rapid Fire images, or set it to time-lapse mode. Picture delay is also programmable from 5 seconds to 60 minutes. Everything it captures is stamped with all the information important to hunters. It accepts up to a 32 GB SD card.

MSRP: $119.99 | browningtrailcameras.com

Tree Saddle Hunting: Best Platforms & Ring of Steps

We all need a spot to place our feet in life … and even more so when in the saddle. The two options are a platform or ring-of-steps. For longer hunts, platforms are more comfortable and most familiar. Ring-of-steps are lighter and easier to pack for shorter-duration hunts and long hikes.
