Best Innovative Bowhunting Gear from ATA 2020

Best Innovative Bowhunting Gear from ATA 2020

While much of the gear displayed at the 2020 ATA Show may have been the same-old same-old, these products stood out as truly innovative in the bowhunting world.

Pro Cirrus

The Cirrus Wind Indicator continues to evolve into more of a bowhunter’s multi-tool with the new Pro Cirrus. The compact unit not only includes the wind indicator, LED flashlight, and portable charging bank found in the 200 model, it also features a Wi-Fi SD card reader. Paired with the free Pro Cirrus app, you can wirelessly view and share trail-cam photos from your phone. The app is also equipped with weather, compass, and mapping functionality. The Pro Cirrus combines all this cool tech for around just $80. cirrusoutdoors.com

Hunter Safety System Shadow Vest

Hunter Safety System Shadow Vest

Bowhunters have officially run out of excuses to not wear a safety harness, thanks to the new Shadow Vest from Hunter Safety System. Weighing in at just 27 ounces, the harness is incredibly easy to use, doesn’t add bulk, and adjusts to provide a comfortable fit for just about every hunter in a single model. A pair of quiet-snap buttons on the chest connect the shoulder straps, and an adjustable clip design eliminates any excess fabric from dangling from the leg straps – all for under $50. huntersafetysystem.com

Lone Wolf Custom Gear Hang-On

Lone Wolf Custom Gear Hang-On

After generating major buzz with its first-generation Hang-On in 2019, Lone Wolf Custom Gear announced an even lighter design for 2020. By slightly trimming down the platform, seat, and rung design, they managed to engineer a treestand tipping the scales at under 6 pounds. It still offers the advanced leveling adjustment, seamless pairing with climbing sticks, and all the other features of the initial design, while shaving off 2 pounds for the mobile bowhunter. lonewolfcustomgear.com


SPYPOINT CELL-LINK

SPYPOINT CELL-LINK

This new compact unit from SPYPOINT is a universal cellular adapter that transforms any trail camera with a standard SD card slot into a cellular device for just $69.99. The CELL-LINK uses the SD card slot to access a camera’s images and sends them directly to the SPYPOINT mobile app, where users can view photos as well as the CELL-LINK’s status and settings. Cellular plans for the system are available directly through SPYPOINT, including a free plan that transmits up to 100 photos per month. spypoint.com


BOWdometer

BOWdometer

A small, lightweight device that easily installs on a traditional rig, compound, or crossbow, the BOWdometer collects data for every single shot you take. Several internal sensors evaluate shot performance, and archers receive instant feedback on shot consistency via Xi – the company’s unique shot execution index. Users can dig deeper into this data and even compete with other shooters by connecting with the BOWdometer mobile app. bowdometer.com

Bohning Serveless Peep It

Bohning Serveless Peep It

With a durable construction that is quick and easy to install, the Serveless Peep It eliminates the need for string serving and prevents damage to your bowstring while providing a clear, undistorted view of your target. Using a bow press, simply split the string evenly, loop it through the Peep It’s grooves, and align it to the proper position. Once the string is back under full pressure, the peep will remain securely in place. bohning.com
