Here are some gift ideas for the outdoorsman on your shopping list.
Just in time for spring turkey season, Hawke Optics has introduced the XB Multi-Purpose Scope. With its 1x32 optics and 1-inch mono-tube construction, it can handle the heaviest recoil. The multi-purpose reticle is great for crossbows and perfect for spring turkey shotguns. The fully multi-coated optical system is built for maximum light transmission and the M.O.A. finger-adjustable turrets allow for easy adjustment.
The Hawke XB multi-purpose scope is supplied with weaver rings and flip-up caps. This scope is waterproof, shockproof and fogproof. The 1x32 scope also features a high-performance optical system and a fully floating glass-etched illuminated reticle designed to increase your success in the field. The mono-tube design will hold up to use on crossbows, shotguns or AR platforms. The unique reticle design allows for six aim points when shooting a crossbow.
When used on a shotgun for turkey hunting, the top cross represents a range-finding crosshair. It is designed to represent 4 inches at 20 yards when the top of the cross is held at the top of the head. As soon as the bottom of the crosshair is no longer extended into feathers, the bird is at 20 yards. The second cross performs the same range-finding function at 40 yards.
Over the past few years, I have seen more and more sportsmen hunting from the ground. With this trend, a new generation of ground blinds has been popping up. One of the leaders in the industry in ground-blind innovation is Primos. They have recently introduced the Blind Luck ground blind. Mixing DuraMatte HD fabric, silent slide hook windows, a 180-degree front window and brush deception holders, Primos has created a blind that not only blends in with the environment, but is also deadly silent.
The Blind Luck hub system makes this blind easy to set up and extremely sturdy. The Phantom Pro dark interior lining does away with your silhouette. Blind Luck features a 180-degree, full-front window with the silent slide window adjustment system. It is made with the new exclusive DuraMatte HD Poly-Brushed fabric. The new SS hook blind windows are deadly silent, secure and quick to open and close, and it all rolls into a deluxe oversized carrying bag.
Blind Luck also has Brush Deception brush holders that line the roof for the easy addition of sticks, branches and leaves. The ground swat grey camo pattern comes with a floor measuring 58 inches by 58 inches, from hub to hub it is 77 inches and the height is at 72 inches.
Blind Luck is perfect for two bow hunters and with a weight of approximately 20 pounds is great for spring turkey hunting.
The folks at Shimano have the perfect gifts for anglers. The new Cumara freshwater casting and spinning rods are 100 percent bass rods. The newest generation of Cumara has been completely rebuilt. The rod designers at Shimano took the HM-1 Blank from Cumulus and dropped it into the Cumara range of rods.
Also new this year is KR-Concept, Fuji's latest and greatest guide train. This guide train utilizes standard guides and micro guides, which increase casting performance, lifting power, and also increase your hook setting power. Each rod is specifically designed for all of today's hottest techniques.
