Pole Mountain Outdoors Bow Cases
Looking for a tough-as-nails traveling bowcase? One of the best I’ve seen hails from Pole Mountain Outdoors…the new Hardcase BII that can hold two compound bows or one with full quiver attached. Is this case really tough? One of the “can’t-miss” demo videos at the Show was in the Pole Mountain booth…a clip that showed company Sales Manager Jedediah Forrest (pictured) attempting to damage the case with a baseball bat, even riding (and surfing) on it while being towed behind a pickup…on a gravel road. Look into Jedediah’s eyes. If this guy couldn’t break one, nothing will.

The Breath Taker
Smart whitetail hunters, especially, are always looking for ways to reduce human scent. A smart solution to one of the biggest offenders, your mouth, is The Breath-Taker disposable active carbon face mask. Priced at about $13 per 5, you can get a couple hunts out of each one before simply disposing it and starting with a fresh, odor-trapping mask, designed to adsorb 99 percent of all breath odor.

It is no secret that laser rangefinders are one of the handiest gadgets a bowhunter can use. What is most exciting is that this technology is getting easier and handier to use, a good example being the new Opti-Logic Micro-1 Rangefinder that has been several years in development. At just 3.25×2.5×1.38 inches, it is the smallest hand-held rangefinder I have seen, very similar to a pack of cigarettes. How cool is that? Even more bowhunter-friendly is this handy, waterproof design makes use of an LED red dot display that’s ideal for low-light situations.
