I am an avid hunter, fisherman, and outdoorsman so I am always looking for that next great product that gives me an edge when I’m out in the field, woods, or stream. I always have a backpack whether I’m in a tree or creek and have always fumbled with taking the backpack off so I can reach my gear. Given that the Front Pack is built to co-exist with any backpack, I don’t have to worry about leaving things behind. Instead I can now put my most used items in front for easy access! This also works well with weight distribution. By balancing out my gear from front to back I no longer have to worry about a sore back or shoulders.
As a hunter it is great to have a pack that is camouflage but it is even better when the pack does not use Velcro as primary way to seal up. Velcro is impossible to make quiet and when trying to be stealthy it is not something I want to deal with. What it does have are high quality zippers, tons of storage space, comfortable shoulder harness, and a water resistant shell!
Most of our time spent in the woods is 30 ft up a tree. Our set up is for filming so there are normally 2 stands in one tree. The Front Pack saves space eliminating the need for another bulky backpack. Easy access to my grunt calls, deer lure, binos, water bottle, and of course, our favorite, little Debbie Star Crunches for a mid day snack.
Since we film all of our hunts it’s a great tool for my camera guy as well. It keeps batteries dry and close, allowing the warmth of your body to prevent the cold from draining them while not in use. Extra Lens’ and lens cloths are at your fingertips with little movement to ensure the hard work you’re putting in is crystal clear!
Overall this is an amazing pack by itself or with your favorite backpack. Either way, you will be more prepared with RIBZ!
The newest line of Bad Ass, Fully Functional, and Uniquely Versatile bow accessories on the market are now being offered to you by X TAG (Extreme Tactical Archery Gear.) X TAG offers a variety of tactical gear including bi-pods, cameras, handgrips, and lasers which all mount to their hardcore stabilizers. Each stabilizer is equipped with four Polymer Picatinny Rails allowing you to mount any tactical rail mounted accessory to your bow of choice.
We recently had the opportunity to test out X TAG’s ”Black Ops Edition TS3-HD Taculizer”. The 4 inch Harmonic Stabilizer weighs 8 ounces, is made out of 6061 Aluminum and has four harmonic Dampers. If you purchase this product and you find that 8 ounces is more than you need, simply remove the 3 ounce Harmonic Stabilizer and replace it with the included aluminum bushing. This is a great feature considering you will more than likely be adding one or more of the many accessories available for this product.
After getting over the WOW effect when I first opened the package I couldn’t wait to get the Taculizer on my bow. Not only does it look awesome, it completely balanced my bow out. Let’s face it, a lot of things look cool but the true test came when I began shooting with it. Along with stabilizing my bow which allowed me to shoot straighter; it eliminated most of the vibration after the release as well. I was a little out of practice at the time but with each shot I found myself shooting tighter groups and experiencing less and less vibration.
Now for a little fun! The Polymer Picatinny Rail System can be found on any tactical weapon you may come across. The purpose of these rails is to quickly and easily attach accessories that you may need in the field. Are you a hog or frog hunter? Quickly attach any rail mounted light to one of the four rails on the Taculizer. Tired of laying your bow down in a blind? The bi-pod is a great addition to keep your expensive equipment out of the dirt. X TAG offers a “REEL SEAT” which allows you to attach your bow fishing reel right to the stabilizer. Other options such as tactical cameras to catch that kill on film, hand grips to easily carry your bow, and laser sights to eliminate the guess work on your shots; are all available through the makers at X TAG!
A lot of time, effort and quality went into the design of these stabilizers. We believe you’ll agree that this is the accessory that your bow is missing!
If you like to spot and stalk deer or run and gun gobblers, or just sit in your truck and shoot video of your big buck from a distance; this is the ticket to get your footage. The assortment of mounts will connect to just about anything from a branch to a truck window. Saves you from carrying and setting up a tripod to get steady video. With it’s lightweight yet tough nylon construction, this compact unit will withstand the abuse you know you’ll put it through. My only problem with the stedi-stock is it being just abit to short which makes it hard for me to be rock steady when filming. If the stock was a bit longer, it would be 4 star product. Although I cant give it 4 I’m addicted to this product and give it a solid 3 1/2!. Nathan “Reaper” Barrett
This kit is all you need for locating that big bird. Each call has great sound and volume to reach out there. The woodpecker was somewhat hard for me to get onto and get the right sound, but once onto to it, it was amazing! The crow call works great for locating gobblers as well as calling crows in the off season. The owl hoot works so well i called in an owl this past spring, that was a first for me. Awesome accessory for your gobbler season!

There’s nothing more frustrating than a gobbler that doesn’t want to give up his hideout. Make him! The crow and owl hoot are great early morning shock calls and are made easy to use in this pack. The new pileated woodpecker call was always within reach this season. It absolutely drove the birds into gobbling mode. Thank you Knight and Hale.

The Fighting Purr is the call that we have been waiting for. The purr is a sound that a lot of callers have trouble producing with a diaphragm or box call. This new call puts the simplicity of it right in your hand.
