Saw and handled the new Sitka Subalpine pattern and specifically the Ascent Series. Will be my new go-to gear for hot weather hunting here in New Mexico!

The heat seeker hot doe test kit ranks right up there with turkey scent! I see no practical use for it. The cheap shot broadheads are kind of intriguing though. Not sure I would use them on anything other than varmints.

If the heat seeker works I think it would be kind of cool. It might confirm the full moon theory.

Where is the new mechanical from SlickTrick?

The Sitka definitely looks great! Too bad the guy had to sell his entire face to afford it.

LOL. Sorry, I just had to. Seriously, nice looking stuff.

Many of these websites are not updated yet to reflect their 2017 products.

The video on the Cheap Shot is impressive for a plastic broadhead.

With such spokesmen as TBM, the good folks at Cherokee Sports were already behind the 8 ball, the iCall is not likely to improve their standing! LOL

The heat seeker could be helpful deciding when to use the vacation days in the fall. Think it could help me breed my horses??

I'm thinking give Heat Seeker kit to all boys entering the 9th grade.

The remote antler rattle interested me until I found out it was anchored in the tree your in and worked from a pull cord. I already do that with real antlers.

The Aerial Archery throwing machine looked like a lot of fun but out of my budget for just personal use. For now I'll have to stick with another person tossing up the discs.

That Multi Weapon Pack from Insights Hunting looks slick.

The Thin Maxima Reds from Carbon Express will be nice too. Anxious to see the GPI.

You put a pinch of that deer pee dip in between your lip and gums and you're going to score for sure! Ha!

Really like the new stainless slick tricks. Very good chance those will be on the end of my deer/elk arrow this fall.

It's great when the company websites aren't even updated for 2017...

I really like the subalpine pattern from Sitka. I'm a camo nerd, it's a bit ridiculous and likely not an issue in any success I have hunting, but that stuff just looks great and the quality is super.

Plastic broadhead, didn't we go down that road in the early '90s? About the same time that the Punchcutter can around.

So I tried not to editorialize within the article. Here was my favorites: Loved the new Sitka Gear, it's not only a kick-ass camo pattern but they also made it lighter with some new products in the line. Very sharp.

I am not a mechanical broadhead guy at all, but I must say the ST head is the sturdiest mechanical I've seen to date. I told them I won't use it and they were cool with that. I liked the looks of the ST Stainless heads but I've never had any problem with their standard heads so I will probably just stay with them.

The incremental changes on the Ripcord, MBG Ascent Verdict, were super nice additions to the line.

Liked that Wiebe knife. I have been using a Havalon and liked it, but this new knife appears to be every bit as good except cheaper and with a lot more blades.

Really liked that MWP pack. It's not a excursion pack but perfect for a day or two hunt for elk and a hike to a distant treestand.

Loved that Koola buck unit but the price point is just too high IMO. Same with the target thrower.

Moultrie keeps raising the bar on their cams and lowering the price. They have a great performing camera for under 60 bucks now! And that's MSRP - I bet you can get it on sale for $49 and the pics were Awesome.

Then there's the ridiculous stuff - I'll let you figure out what that is.
