Predator Xtreme’s Readers’ Choice Award Winners

The ballots have been counted and the winners announced for Predator Xtreme’s first Readers’ Choice Awards.

“Our focus at Predator Xtreme magazine has always been to provide our readers — America’s most serious predator hunters — with cutting-edge information to help them become more efficient afield,” says Editor Bob Robb. “The Predator Xtreme Reader’s Choice Awards are a unique reflection of the gear they prefer to help them become more successful.”

When we ask our readers what gear they trust in the field they don’t hold punches. They live by Predator Xtreme’s slogan — Hunt Hard, Shoot Straight, Kill Clean, Apologize To No One — and they didn’t apologize when they told us exactly what products they count on. So here are the unfiltered winners of the 2013 Predator Xtreme Readers’ Choice Awards.
