5 Hunting Accessories That Make Us Shake Our Heads

When it comes to hunting accessories, these products range from the weirdest to the worst.

We all like to stay up to date on new and trending outdoor products, but sometimes manufacturers take it a little too far. Check out these five hunting accessories that make us shake our heads.

1. Buck Fever Reliever

Don’t even get me started on this one, folks. Nothing, and I mean nothing, can cure a man from a bad case of buck fever, except going out and bagging a buck. Unfortunately, the clever marketing on this product was probably enough to sell a few million. As for me, it just made me smirk.

2. Blinds Built onto UTV’s

I understand the people with mobile disabilities need vehicles like this to help them continue to enjoy their passion for the outdoors. Trust me, I am all for that!

However, I have pretty good hunch that plenty of able-bodied country boys are running this thing out to the end of their back 40 and setting up shop due to their overwhelming laziness. Come on, guys, at some point, you’ve got to get off your butt and do some real hunting. But that’s just my two cents on it.

3. ScentMaster Box

While I agree that keeping unwanted scents off your hunting gear is extremely important if you plan on sneaking past the keen nose of a whitetail deer, spending $300 on a box is not part of my hunting budget. Rubbing dirt on my clothes and hanging them in the tree the night before has served me well in the past, and it was free. Whether this box is the real deal or not certainly has me scratching my head.

4. Big Red Stalking Blind

Woah! Woah! Woah! Before you get your panties in a bunch thinking I’m hating on an awesome product, hear me out first.

I am well aware that this is a fantastic product for chasing pronghorn, elk, mule deer, and other species that share cattle land in the midwest. But I have to admit that every time I see it in action, it makes me laugh. Since it actually works very well, this one made this list simply because I find it a hilarious. Out of all the hunting tactics out there, you decide to hide behind a two-dimensional cow? I think there’s some comedy in that.

5. The Redneck Ladder Stand

For the love of God, people, please stop scattering your aluminum ladder tree stands all over the deer woods. I get that it may be cheaper then most of the tree stands on the market, but let’s be honest with each other for a moment. You can purchase a safe, comfy tree stand for around 100 bucks. All you have to do is save two dollars a week from this season to the next, and you will have enough to get off that raggedy chair you have duct-taped to the top of that rusty ladder. Sorry if that came off a little blunt, but it is what it is.

Well, there you have it. These are the hunting accessories that make me shake my head.
