Ultra-Tough Targets — BLOCK Infinity Crossbow Targets

BLOCK Infinity Crossbow Target

The newest addition to BLOCK’s Infinity series, Infinity Crossbow Targets are designed to withstand repeated assault from today’s hard-hitting, lightning-fast crossbows! The company’s PolyFusion Technology features a high-density, layered-foam core encased within an exterior foam wall and offers incredible stopping power, using friction to halt bolts as they slide between the layers. The targets feature six different shooting faces, with graphics strategically placed to prolong target life by providing offset aiming points. Two sizes are available — 16x16 inches and 20x20 inches — with both handling bolts flying up to 520 fps. $149.99 (16x16) $203.99 (20x20) |

Invaluable Afield — Mystery Ranch Bino Harness

Mystery Ranch Bino Harness

Whether you enjoy spot-and-stalk hunting, or you prefer perching in a treestand waiting for a big buck to wander by, you likely will need to access your binoculars at a moment’s notice. That’s where Mystery Ranch’s bino harnesses — available for 10X and 12X binos — come in handy. Recently updated to improve comfort and function, they’re lightweight, easy to use and come in two different torso sizes, making them easily adaptable for all needs. Key features include one-handed operation, quiet magnetic closure and strategically placed pockets to hold calls and other items. The 10X harness is 7x8x4.3 inches, weighs .68 pounds and fits binos up to 6.75 inches high, while the 12X is 9x8x3.8 inches, weighs .71 pounds and fits binos from 6.75-8 inches long. $125 (10X); $135 (12X) |

Safe Travels — Plano Field Locker Element

Plano Field Locker Element

Designed with traveling bowhunters in mind, the tough-as-nails Field Locker Element bow case features a durable exterior shell, heavy-duty DryLoc gasket to protect from the elements and high-density customizable foam to ensure your bow is safe and secure during travel. At 44x15x6.4 inches, the case can accommodate almost any compound bow on the market, yet it still fits easily in a closet or under the bed. It also offers room for accessories and arrows, features overmolded, heavy-duty handles to help reduce fatigue and comes with ball-bearing wheels to make treks through the airport, camp or hotel easy. $319.99 |

Clear The Air — Ozonics MICRO3

Ozonics MICRO3

The new MICRO3 allows hunters to deploy the oxidizing power of Ozonics in their cars, trucks and RVs. Any space that offers a 12-volt power receptacle (aka cigarette lighter) can now be cleansed of offensive and unwanted odors by simply inserting the MICRO3. The production of ozone molecules from the MICRO3 will sanitize your vehicle’s interior air and surfaces by attacking bacteria, viruses, mold spores and more. Note: MICRO3 is intended for use only in unoccupied vehicles or spaces. It will automatically shut off after 20 minutes of operation. To run a second cycle, simply unplug and reinsert it into the power receptacle. A green LED light indicates when the MICRO3 is in operation. $50 |

Essentials Only — KUIU Pro Bino Hydration Setup

KUIU Pro Bino Hydration Setup

Newly updated for 2022, the KUIU Pro Bino Hydration Setup is perfect for hunters who want or need to pack extremely light for spot-and-stalk excursions or tough hikes through mountainous terrain. The package includes KUIU’s Pro Bino Harness, Pro Hydration Rig, Hydration Hose Cover and Platypus 3L Hoser. The harness, which comes in large (binos up to 6.75 inches tall) and extra-large (6.75-8 inches), features a waterproof fabric case and allows for easy, one-handed access to optics, while the Platypus hydration unit holds up to 100 ounces of water. When your gear needs to be minimal, this is the perfect setup. $176 |

Super Stopping Power — Morrell Targets Kinetic 1.0

Morrell Targets Kinetic 1.0

Two patented floating centers make this bag target capable of stopping the fastest arrows and bolts. The Kinetic 1.0 features two 20x20-inch faces, offering a generous aiming surface, while the bag’s 14-inch depth and 60-pound weight allow it to stand up to even the hardest-hitting crossbow shots. This made-in-the-USA target is hand stuffed with premium stopping fill and promises easy retrieval, which means you can spend more time practicing and less time trying to extract arrows and bolts. $149.99 |

One Tough Customer — Wicked Tough Machete

Wicked Tough Machete

If you need to maintain a trail on your hunting property, clean up a campsite or thin out brush, the Wicked Tough Machete is definitely a tool you need in your arsenal. The machete features a forged, carbon steel blade and an ergonomic grip for comfort; it also comes with a sheath and loop for hanging on your belt. $49.99 |

Tournament Tough — Delta McKenzie BIG 8

Delta McKenzie BIG 8

Available in 16- and 20-inch-wide versions, the Delta McKenzie BIG 8 was developed with the ASA Pro 3D competition circuit, with a goal of ensuring it stands up to heavy tournament-style use and abuse. The unique, eight-sided, asymmetric hexagon design features competition-grade, self-healing foam and provides a larger shooting area when compared to many square targets, while the vibrant green-and-white graphics are easy to see no matter your pin color or distance from the target. The BIG 8 is designed for easy arrow removal with fieldpoints, fixed blades and mechanical broadheads; the 20-inch model also has a replaceable core, helping extend the target’s life. $169.99 (16-inch); $219.99 (20-inch) |

A Winning Formula — Flambeau Outdoors Formula Bow Case

Flambeau Outdoors Formula Bow Case

It’s the next step in the protection of your prized possession. The Formula Bow Case uses a foamless chassis assembly rather than foam layers or straps to secure your bow in place, allowing cams, cables, string, sight and other components to free-float to help prevent damage. This Adjustable Bow Security System features two chassis sleds that your bow limbs rest against. Nite Ize Mega Gear Ties (rubber-coated memory wire) then lock the riser in place to spinal tabs on the sleds, anchoring the bow safely and securely. The case, which is 47x20x9.5 inches, can accommodate bows up to 43 inches long. It comes with a removable accessory pouch, 8-arrow holder, tie-down slots for securing to ATV racks and much more. $189.99 |

Built For Tough Jobs — Oxcart Trail Boss

Oxcart Trail Boss

Whether you’re doing maintenance on food plots or transporting hunting equipment and stands, the Trail Boss is designed to make those arduous jobs much easier. This commercial-grade, 25-cubic-foot, mesh-free utility cart boasts a 1,750-pound load capacity, solid steel bed, powder-coated steel frame construction and ATV-grade 18x19.5-inch tires. The trailer also offers 15-inch ground clearance, ideal for traversing tough terrain. The combination of an offset dump pivot point and hydraulic lift assist, with a 58-degree dumping angle, makes jobs like emptying a load of soil or moving branches and brush easy-peasy. The trailer attaches to ATVs, UTVs and mowers via a pin-hole hitch. $599 |

Versatile & Sharp — Outdoor Edge 3.5-inch Razorwork

Outdoor Edge 3.5-Inch Razorwork

Looking for a versatile knife to handle a variety of tasks in the field? Outdoor Edge’s new RazorWork 3.5-inch utility knife comes with a 3.5-inch drop-point blade and two 3.5-inch utility blades, with blade changing made safe and easy thanks to the RazorSafe push-button system. Blades are crafted from Japanese 420J2 stainless steel, resulting in precision sharpness whether field dressing a deer or cutting a piece of rope. The knife is 8 inches long, weighs 2.6 ounces and the handle is ergonomically designed for comfort, with a slip-resistant grip to ensure safety. $34.95 |
