Find out what bowhunting and archery gear has been researched and tested to represent the next big thing.
We're always trying to find out what sort of innovative hunting gear will arrive on the scene next. There's one really good place to see a lot of that sort of stuff at once: The annual ATA Show.
We're in Louisville, Kentucky checking out the show's gigantic lineup of leading brands and revolutionary gear, and we started getting the feeling that we're farther than we've ever been from "the good old days."
That's not necessarily a bad thing, because the more technological strides outdoor brand can take, the better experience we're going to have. At least that's the promise.
With that in mind, these are a few of the smart new products that we've seen roll out during ATA 2019. If you're not paying attention, this tech is going to pass you by.
Pelican Bow Case
Never fear, the Pelican 1745 Air Bow Case is here. Not only is it up to Pelican's normally stellar protection standards, but it's got a slew of incredibly high tech features, like a customizable modular storage system, TSA-approved locking hatches, integrated wheels, and a 40% lighter weight when compared to the competition.
Moultrie Integrated Cellular Game Camera
These new integrated wireless game cameras, the Moultrie Mobile XV-7000i and XA-7000i, are making it easier and faster to get high-quality photos sent from the woods straight to your smart phone, tablet, or computer.
Scent Blocker OZ Gear Changer
They aren't the first to come up with the idea, but this storage locker powered with Scent Blocker's OZ active odor destroyer is bound to perform based on the brand's past history in scent elimination. The whole thing folds up for easy transport.
Garmin Instinct GPS Watch
It's heavy duty meets high tech in the Garmin Instinct, a watch any hunter would benefit from owning. It's up to U.S. military standards and can last an incredible 40 hours on one battery charge in its innovative battery saver mode.
There's a lot of R&D that went into making the Mathews Vertix an incredibly innovative bow, but what drew our attention the most was the exchangeable mod system, which can alter the weight of the bow easier and in wider increments than any bow before it.
