Still trying to find a last minute Christmas gift for the bowhunter on your list? Whether you’re trying to stuff a stocking or needing something more…the following gifts are sure to please!
Badlands Sacrifice Backpack
One of the hottest new offerings this year for hunters looking for a more comfortable backcountry hunting experience is the new Sacrifice pack from Badlands http://badlandspacks.com. The difference in this pack starts at its core, the pack suspension and frame. The Sacrifice is the first hunting pack on the market to offer a heat treated rail inverted frame. What this means to hunters is, they get a fully functional internal frame which weighs less than 8 ounces, but offers the support of some of those frames weighing 8 pounds! Every gram of weight put into this pack was scrutinized, taken out, weighed, and re-scrutinized. If a component’s usefulness did not match its weight, it was tossed. The Sacrifice is the lightest pack in its class.
EZ Fletch Mini
The crew at Arizona Rim Country Products continues to expand their product line in 2010 with their new EZ Fletch Mini http://ezfletch.com. The E-Z Fletch ‘Mini” lets you fletch vanes up to 2 ¼” with maximum helical for more accurate arrow flight.

Other benefits of the new E-Z Fletch Mini are faster broadhead stabilization and tighter groups, for the ultimate in precision shooting.

V3 Easton Expandable Varmint Point
Easton Archery taps an entirely new side of archery with their V3 Expandalble Varmint Point http://eastonarchery.com. It’s the first mechanical small game head with an exploding expandable action unlike any other product on the market. The head offers field-point flight, replaceable blades, and helps prevent lost arrows. The V3 is available in 100 grains.
Trophy Taker SmackDown
The SmackDown arrow rest is the newest member of the Trophy Taker http://trophytaker.com family and is without a doubt one of the best arrow rests the industry has seen yet. Using the limb or up-cable to operate the rest allows the launcher to raise early as the bow is drawn, lifting the arrow long before the broadhead approaches the bow and long before the cams break over into the let-off position. When the bow is shot, the arrow travels along the launcher for nearly the full length of the shaft resulting in increased arrow guidance time. The increased time that the launcher guides the arrow during the shot makes tuning challenging bows much easier. At the last instant, the launcher is pulled down out of the path of the vanes and held firmly in the down position. As an added bonus, the SmackDown promises to be the quickest and easiest rest to set up and tune that Trophy Taker has introduced to date.
Ever since the beginning of my archery career, I’ve been removing the quiver from my bow prior to shooting. I’ve had some great quivers over the years, but they all placed an unbalanced feel to my setup when at full draw. All that has changed with the new TightSpot quiver http://tightspotquiver.com. The TightSpot Quiver is the first bow quiver designed to help archers shoot better while keeping their bow quiver attached to their bow. The TightSpot Quiver fits tight to your bow, minimizing torque and improving accuracy. It’s the first bow quiver to complement, not compromise, the performance of your hunting bow.
HSS 360 Extension Limb
When I saw the 360 Extension Limb, I knew that someone had finally solved the answer to all those neck-strangling moments in the treestand when rotating in the stand as you prepare for the shot. The life-saving tether connection from a hunter’s fall-restraint system has always been the very thing that can prevent full 360-degree shooting. Hunter Safety System has eliminated this problem with the introduction of the new 360 Extension Limb http://hssvest.com. The 360 Extension Limb is a reinforced steel branch that attaches to the tree in place of the standard tree strap. The 360 Extension Limb allows the tether to move freely and silently above the hunter, providing for easy shooting in any direction, while automatically adjusting to the direction of the shot.
