For spending countless hours waiting for that buck to come along, you need to make sure that you are ready to take a shot. Fatigue can set in if you’re using the wrong kind of seating. That is where this chair excels over competitive brands. You do not have to worry about your legs or rear-end falling asleep. The backrest will keep you in good posture while still accommodating the needs of a bowhunter or rifle hunter. Utilizing a simple construction design, this chair is both lightweight and compact in size making it ideally suited to use in any hunting blind.
Key features of the Primos Hunting Double Bull Qs3 Magnum Ground Swat Camo Chair include:
Weighs just 6 Lbs
Lightweight steel construction
Full backrest for support
Success as a hunter will come down to several key factors. One of the biggest factors that most hunters overlook is comfort. Truth is, when you spend long hours in a ground blind in a seated position, you are going to experience loss of blood flow to the lower extremities that can result in your legs or feet falling asleep or just becoming cold. This can have negative effects on your success because you will constantly have to reposition yourself to remain comfortable and focus on your hunting activities. Constantly moving while inside of a blind can also give away your position to wary game animals such as deer, boar, and turkey who are keen to picking up the excess noise.
The Tri-Stool base of the Primos Qs3 allows bowhunters to have full range of motion while seated. The bottom of the chair positions the hunter at an ideal height to make a shot through the windows of most commercial ground blinds on the market. Special attention has been given to this height and these chairs are designed to be the perfect seat for use in all the Primos line of Double Bull blinds.
Next time you decide to hunt for long hours in a blind, make sure you take a Primos Double Bull Qs3 Magnum Chair with you. The flared backrest will provide proper support for your posture while seated. The Tri-Stool will allow for adequate freedom of movement while seated to give bowhunters a prime opportunity at making a successful shot. The compact design and light weight of just 6 lbs. makes this easy to stow away in your vehicle for camping or even tailgating.
The Summit Treestands Titan SD is a massive climbing style tree stand that provides a stable hunting environment. This is the largest tree stand that Summit Treestands manufactures. The climbing style tree stand is quite large but has just a 25 Lb. total weight to it allowing for hunters to get deep into the woods. With a 350 Lb. weight capacity, the stand will accommodate hunters of all sizes and the large platform will make this ideal for bowhunters. For rifle hunting, the front bar makes an excellent gun rest as well as assisting in making it easier to climb with the stand.
Key features of the Summit Treestands Titan SD include:
4-point FAS safety harness w/ SRS strap
Summit’s sound deadening technology
Fits trees with 8 – 20 inch diameter
350 lb. weight capacity
Comfort is king with this tree stand! There is a large 18 inch x 12 inch seat that has a 12 x 20 inch backrest. The seat bottom and backrest are made with a padded foam material for those long hours spent in the stand. The seat height can be easily adjusted to accommodate bowhunting or rifle hunting. Included are a set of padded camouflage arm rests as well as a padded gun rest on the front bar. Even if you are hunting in colder weather with several layers of clothing and a heavy jacket, the added space that this stand provides will ensure you remain quite comfortable.
Another added bonus for this tree stand is that it includes a rather large sized platform. Not only does this make it easier to climb by using the rapid climb stirrups, but it gives bowhunters a large area to stand on when preparing to take a shot. The seat is two pieces and can even be unbuckled to provide more access to the platform. On the 6-channel aluminum platform is a “Dead Metal” sound deadening coating to keep things quiet and stealthy.
If you’re in the market for a large size tree stand, then this model will be perfect for you. The lightweight aluminum design is strong enough to support even the largest hunters and light enough to carry long distances into the woods. The Summit Treestands Titan SD features some of the best climbing capabilities of any tree stand on the market with its oversized frame and platform. Comfortable, portable, easy to set up, and strong make this stand a must have for any serious outdoorsman.
The Ameristep Tripod Folding Stool is perfect for hunting blinds, camping trips, or even tailgates. The physical size is so small that you could easily stow it in any vehicle to have on hand whenever you need it. The stool is lightweight so you can take it deep into the woods on your next deer hunt and set it up inside of your ground blind. Being that this stool is low in height, bowhunters will have the necessary room inside the blind to draw a bow while seated. The open design of the stool allows you to pivot on the seat giving you full 360 degree movement without having to re-position the seat.
Key features of the Ameristep Tripod Folding Stool include:
Lightweight, folding design for portability
Seat allows hunter to pivot freely
Comfortable camo pattern seat for long hours in the blind
A surprisingly nice feature of the stool is that there is no back to it. While having a back would assist in providing proper back support for hunters, you might also find yourself more likely to take a snooze and miss an opportunity at a trophy buck. Instead, you have to force yourself to sit upright and be more alert. This stool manages to cradle your rear evenly so that you don’t need to shift constantly to remain seated comfortably for a long period of time.
Some folding chairs are just too large to accommodate much more than a pair of hunters and all of their gear when ground blind hunting. Using these folding stools, you can easily fit 2 – 3 hunters in the blind. They are surprisingly comfortable to sit on for the long hours you will be spending while hunting deer, wild boar, turkey, or other wild game. The folding design of the Ameristep stool makes it easy to fit inside of a backpack or ground blind carry sack for maximum portability. Not only will these work great out in the field, but keep a couple in your car to take with you camping, tailgaiting at the next game, or even while working around the house.
The Primos Truth Cam 46 is a solid game camera choice for hunters that are looking for a balance between quality and price. I already had been using the Truth Cam 35 extensively on the property that I hunt and was in need of a game camera that did a better job of photographing at night. The daytime images are crisp and clear as I have found is the case with the entire line of Primos game cameras but it is the night shots that really set it apart from the Truth Cam 35. There is a 46 IR LED bank for providing nighttime photo capability and this camera does that pretty well out to around 40 – 45 feet! If you are looking for a quality game camera at around $100 that takes excellent photos day or night, then this is the camera for you.
Key features of the Truth Cam 46 include the following:
Takes high quality still photos or videos day or night
Takes up to 8 GB SD memory card (sold separately) for photo/video storage
Photos are time stamped with date, moon phase, and temperature
Operates all year long in hot or cold temperatures
Easy to adjust camera settings with instruction printed inside door
The daytime photos are near perfect with this game camera. I have found that if you are getting a deer or other game animal to move in front of the camera too quickly, you may wind up photographing half or part of the animal. To remedy this, I recommend setting the camera for an image burst in the settings and lowering the sensitivity a little. This will keep the camera from going into a “sleep mode” that has reduced shutter speed. If you are able to check the camera often enough during the hunting seasons, then a few extra photographs will not hurt the memory storage. Another tip that I recommend doing is to use 4 GBWi-Fi SD memory cards. This will allow you to check the photos while in the field wirelessly using a smartphone. This has saved me countless hours and I no longer have to swap out memory cards and wait to look at the photos when I get home.
Better nighttime photos are the primary reason why I picked up the Truth Cam 46 game camera. They are fantastic! You can adjust the amount of IR (infrared) LED being used to prolong the battery life but I leave this set to the maximum setting to give me longer night range out to 50 feet. Video at night works quite well too but I tend to stick to still images mostly. Another handy feature of the game camera is that it has a back lit LCD screen so you can set this camera up in low light conditions or at night easily. I recommend playing with all the various settings so you get a feel for what pictures comes out best. Lowering the sensitivity will take pictures of moving branches from time to time but that is common with most game cameras. I prefer a lower sensitivity so that I capture more images for increased scouting information – especially before deer hunting season.
If you are in the market for a quality trail camera that excels at nighttime photos, then this model is for you. This camera really reaches out in the darkness to grab clear photos and videos of deer, boar, bobcats, foxes, coyotes, and other wild game. You will have many adjustment settings that allow for battery conservation as well. Set-up is easy with detailed instructions printed right inside the door of the game camera and can be done in low light or at night with the back lit LCD screen. The Truth Cam 46 includes the same top features found on other comparable brands but at a price that is hundreds of dollars less.
For an economical deer hunting target, the Block Shooter 3D Buck Archery Target by Field Logic Inc. is ideal. Bowhunters are constantly looking for an archery target that can stand up to the rigorous treatment and punishment that they take without costing a fortune. This target has a good look to it overall and is actually sized fairly well when compared to a male buck. The replacement vital block is quite a bit larger than some comparable brands and most fixed broadheads or mechanicals can be removed from it easily. The cost for the Shooter Buck Replacement Insert is also very economical giving you a target that will last you for many years and cost little to maintain. Next time you are headed to your favorite hunting blind or tree stand location, take along a Shooter Buck to get yourself dialed in.
Features of the Block Shooter 3D Buck Archery Target include the following:
Antlers measure 125 inches for added realism
31 inch shoulder height
Replacement vital insert
More expensive archery targets are often made of costly materials that provide more realism than may be needed. While those targets would be ideal for a buck decoy during deer hunting season, the same function can be done at a fraction of the cost. By having a simple design that mimics the shape of the buck, this target fits the gap between ultra-realistic and basic functioning 3D target. Critical to the process of being a successful hunter is an archery target that is designed to target the vitals from an area near your hunting blind or tree stand and ranged with your bow. If you move from spot to spot or change your tree stand to a different location in the woods, this is a crucial time saving element to use prior to the deer hunting season. Once the season opens, you will be dialed in and ready for that trophy buck!
If you are looking for a well made, low cost bowhunting target for deer season, then the Block Shooter 3D Buck Archery Target is perfect for you. Replacement vital block is less expensive than that of similar brands and will get plenty of life from your practice broadheads or mechanicals. Stakes are also included with the target so you won’t accidentally knock over your target while practicing. When you are ready to dial yourself in before next deer hunting season, make sure you have this quality 3D target.
