Covert Picture Perfect Apple Mineral

Covert Scouting Cameras, a leader in trail-camera technology, announces the addition of a premium line of nutritionally based mineral supplements and powerful attractants scientifically formulated to enhance deer herd health and increase scouting camera interactions. Covert’s Picture Perfect Apple Mineral has powerful apple flavor and aroma to bring in deer from a distance. A proprietary blend of vitamins, minerals and other ingredients aids in support of skeletal growth and antler development and enhances overall herd health. Calcium, phosphorus, copper, zinc and salt are blended in ideal ratios to support bone and boost antler growth. It also contains biotin and selenium. The chelated minerals in Picture Perfect combine with organic compounds and amino acids to boost absorption. $30 (25 pounds) | feradyne.com/covert-scouting-cameras

Primos Photoform Decoys

Already incredibly realistic, the Primos Photoform line of decoys is now even more lifelike with the addition of Strutter and Leading Hen versions. A proprietary process allows an actual image of a turkey to be printed on durable, 3D-molded, lightweight foam, creating Photoform Decoys that offer detailed realism that won’t chip or peel. Light enough to be carried around all day (Strutter weighs 2 pounds), the new decoys can be quickly set up in multiple positions to simulate the most realistic natural environments to lure in unsuspecting toms. $130 (Strutter); $80 (Leading Hen) | primos.com

Make The Call — HS Drury Outdoors Deer Calls

Hunters Specialties Drury Outdoors Deer Calls

Hunters Specialties has teamed with Drury Outdoors to develop three new deer calls: Dominant Doe Bleat, Rack Jack Rattle Device and the Buck Bark Deer Call. The Dominant Doe call has new HS internals preset to a dominant-doe-bleat vocal. The back half is constructed of a soft rubber, allowing the user to manipulate the exhaust, resulting in a variety of accentuated doe-in-heat bleats. It can be tuned to replicate other doe vocals by moving the O-ring on the reed to notched locations. The Rack Jack is a two-piece design, composed of contrasting resins, and it easily replicates two bucks in an all-out battle. Plunging the ram in and out of the housing causes the strategically spaced rings to clash with each other to create loud, high-pitched clacks that carry a long distance. The Buck Bark is a dominant buck call that comes with a built-in, snort-wheeze feature, allowing the user to switch from buck grunts and growls to the challenging snort wheeze. $20 (Dominant Doe); $30 (Rack Jack); $25 (Buck Bark) | hunterspec.com

Get Fired Up — Buck-Fire Raging Estrus

Wildlife Research Center Buck-Fire Raging Estrus

Buck-Fire Raging Estrus is the latest addition to the Wildlife Research Center line of Micro Brew Craft Scents. This carefully crafted ‘Fired-Up Estrus Scent’ is specially tweaked with two secret, rut-inspired ingredients, and just a touch of tarsal smell, to combine strong sexual attraction and strong territorial appeal to fire up bucks. Micro Brew Craft Scents are made in small batches to optimize their strengths in various attraction qualities. Backed by a 100 percent, money-back guarantee. $30 (4-ounce bottle and key wick) | wildlife.com


A New Dimension — Montana Decoy Wiley Tom 3D

Montana Decoy Wiley Tom 3D

Constructed with Montana Decoy’s lifelike HD photo process that uses images of actual wild turkeys, the new Wiley Tom 3D gobbler decoy delivers in-the-field realism needed to fool wary birds. Just like the original Wiley Tom, the new 3D version lets hunters deploy the printed fabric alone or with the addition of real turkey feathers. Using individual tail feathers allows easy replacement of damaged ones without the need for an entirely new fan. The decoy folds for easy carry and the trifold panels help protect the decoy and any real feathers that might be used while being carried in a vest or pack. It features a two-piece design for versatility and easy setup. Price Unavailable | montanadecoy.com


Ready For A Fight — Flambeau Scrapper Buck

Flambeau Scrapper Buck

The new Scrapper Buck decoy from Flambeau is designed to agitate — not intimidate — other bucks and bring them in close for a shot. Based on a carving by award-winning sculptor Chris Schiller, the Scrapper Buck has the body and antler size of a 2.5-year-old and will raise the hackles of other bucks looking to defend their turf. With a realistic paint scheme, movable ears to simulate alert or seeking postures, 9-inch antler spread and faux fur tail that moves freely in the wind, it will be hard for bucks to differentiate the Scrapper Buck from the real thing. Comes with an orange carry bag for safe, easy transport and mounting stakes to hold the decoy securely upright in the field. Available June 2022. $149.99 | flambeauoutdoors.com

Call The Shot — Primos Shot Caller

Primos Shot Caller

Primos invites turkey hunters to Speak The Language with the new Shot Caller box call. It is made for hunters who want a no-frills box call at a great price. A double-sided box call, Shot Caller features a one-piece box construction that doesn’t have the panels, glue or plastic often found in lesser-quality box calls available at this price point. With its straightforward sound design, Shot Caller offers the versatility to make authentic cuts, clucks, purrs and yelps from either side to convince gobblers to strut into bow range. $29 | primos.com
