Gear and Gadgets.....

7 posts in this topic

So i've been spending a lot of time looking through cabelas magazines lately wondering what to buy for this fall. With all the new gear on the market, what is one thing you've bought that turned into something you absolutely love and won't go into the field without.

One thing i love is a sling for my shotgun while duckhunting. it is so useful to throw your sling on your shoulder and have your gun by you at all times and the sling makes that super easy.

I second the sling idea, but the one I like for my hunting is the Primos Bow sling. It has 2 molded cups for the cams on the bow and a shock-corded type sheet for around your strings. Nice for over the shoulder or across the back while hiking.

I also got a Cabelas headlamp last year for christmas and love it. No more holding my flashlight in my teeth while I try to find something in my bag. The LED's are brighter than the spot and keep the batteries much longer.

another vote for the sling on the shotgun. range finders are awsome (don't have one yet!!) I will have to try the bow sling. I think that my vote would be a pack of some sort for hunting. last year i got a cheap camo backpack ($5 walmart special) and i cary all my stuff in it and i can fit lots of clothes for when it is colder. It does seem kind of big at times though.

A headlamp. I bought the $10 one at Walmart and love it, frees up your hands for carrying your bow and other gear. When bowhunting is done, it goes in my icefishing gear, great for that walk off the ice in the dark.

How does a bow sling work? Do you take it off when you're in the tree?

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
