Mossy Oak InfinityMossy Oak Break-Up Infinity Camo

For 2010, Mossy Oak has taken one of the most popular camo patterns ever and made it even better. Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity features digitally photographed forest elements like leaves, limbs, and even acorns, which work together with spot-on color schemes to create serious depth and contrast.

Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity blends realistic images with the right amount of depth to produce a pattern that effectively breaks up your silhouette whether you’re seated in a treestand or stalking silently through the forest. Look for it on a wide range of licensed apparel and hunting accessories.

New for 2010, Extreme Archery has expanded its popular Bone Collector line of fixed-pin sights with the Model 1150 Bone Collector.

plotwatcherPlotWatcher Time-Lapse Camera

Unlike trail cameras that trigger on short-range motion, the PlotWatcher HD TLV (Time-Lapse Video) captures images of an area regardless of how far the subject is from the camera. Using time-lapse HD video, it records activity at a much greater distance—covering an area 10 times greater than a traditional trail camera.

Images are taken every 5 or 10 seconds from dawn until dusk, producing a short HD video that will allow you to review a full day of activity in just a few minutes—an awesome tool for finding the hottest hunting locations.


bowjaxBowJax Magnum Split Limb Dampeners

New Magnum Split Limb Dampeners are 30 percent larger than previous models for even more effectiveness, while still offering the proven, patent-pending 6-arm design.

The new limb pads provide a secure fit when tightened with a hex wrench; the improved pads are four times thicker than the original MonsterJax Split Limb Dampeners, to better dampen noise and vibration on today’s high-performance compound bows and crossbows.

S4Gear has introduced its inaugural product: the Sidewinder Retractable Tether System—a convenient way to secure and still have instant access to all types of electronic devices including rangefinders, GPS systems, radios, cell phones and more.

true fire edge hybridTru-Fire Edge Hybrid

The dual-jaw, caliper-style Edge ($85) offers a slim barrel and a standard (shown) or Forward Trigger option to compensate for draw length lost when using a D-loop. Between the head and the strap, the Edge has a full inch of adjustability; your personal setting can be locked into place. Operation is foolproof: simply pull the trigger to open the jaws; let up to close them.

The new Hybrid wrist strap is offered with Tru-Fire’s Edge, Hurricane, and 360 releases; the Hybrid combines a conventional buckle and hook-and-loop fastening with a soft, durable wrist cushion. The strap’s cam fastener allows for infinite adjustment—versus a standard buckle strap with holes a half-inch apart.

hunter ultra lite harnessHSS Ultra Lite Harness

Hunter Safety System’s newest harness, the Ultra Lite ($100), offers the same structural design, materials and construction of traditional HSS restraint systems, with a sleek new look and new level of comfort.

The Ultra Lite is fully adjustable to accommodate early-season as well as bulky, cold-season clothing—while the saddle-style leg strap design offers added safety in the event of a fall, and more comfort on stand. New super-quiet, rubber-coated leg strap buckles are stronger and smaller than those used in previous styles.

The Ultra Lite comes with the Lineman’s climbing Strap (retail value $40) and is compatible with all HSS accessories including the Lifeline and Suspension Relief/Deer Drag Strap.
