Realtree’s (www.realtree.com) EZ Hangers have been a staple for tree-climbing bowhunters for a long time. These products organize your gear when you’re 20 feet up, which keeps you organized and more efficient. They are quiet, easy to screw in to the most “hard” hardwoods, and feature a padded hook that squelches noise and prevents damage to your bow, pack and other gear.
Like any top-notch manufacturer, Realtree refuses to rest on its laurels and has given its EZ Hangers a facelift. The new Realtree EZ Hanger line is stronger and boasts a wider bow hook and an even sharper screw. In addition, hunters can choose from three lengths (13, 23 and 24 inches).
Also new and exciting is the Realtree EZ Hook. This handy little item pretty much takes up zero room in your pack and is ideal for holding a backpack, binos, rattling horns – the list goes on. The super-sharp screw means little to no effort is needed when threading it into a tree, and I typically end up using three or four of these handy little hooks per tree. I like my items easily accessible and out of the way at the same time.
I was also super pleased and excited about Realtree’s EZ 13 Mount. I love to film my own hunts, but I don’t need the big, bulky camera arms that outdoor television crews require. I want something small, compact, quiet and reliable, and the EZ 13 delivers the aforementioned qualities in spades. With its ball-joint mount and folding body unit, this device promises incredible range of motion, keeps your hands free for shooting and fits well into a backpack side pocket.
I know my trees will boast plenty of EZ Hanger items, and I highly recommend that yours do as well.
