Bowhunters looking for a smooth-pulling bow that still delivers powerful arrow speed, yet doesn’t break the bank, may want to take a hard look at the new Diamond Core bow. At a suggested retail price of just $499, this bow comes full equipped with all the add-ons you need to get started, including sight, quiver, stabilizer, string loop, peep sight, arrow rest, and bow sling.
It weighs 3.2 pounds, has an axle length of 31 inches, and a brace height of 7.25 inches. Draw length is completely adjustable from 25 to 30 inches, and the draw weight can be set from 40 all the way to 70 pounds! Visit www.diamondarchery.com.
The Rage Cage Quiver is a compact, low-profile and ultra-lightweight quiver that was designed specifically to securely hold five arrows tipped with Rage or other mechanical broadheads. Featuring the Twist-Lock™ broadhead-securing system, the quiver completely contains your broadheads and keeps them locked down until you are ready for action. The dual-position Cam-Lock™ quick-release system allows for different arrow lengths, while providing excellent vibration dampening. Installation and removal of the Rage Cage Quiver requires a simple and silent twist of the quiver to lock or unlock it. It weighs in at only eight ounces. Retail $69.95.

Shoot Standing Up
When it comes to “rock solid” and long-lasting construction, you’d be hard pressed to beat one of the new Browning pop-up blinds. There are four in the line, each offering various features for he hunter. All models use extremely strong and durable components like 600D fabric, heavier than normal mesh, aluminum hubs with engineered steel tips and pins, strong and flexible fiberglass poles, and oversized #10 zippers. Each of the corners uses extra fabric for reinforcement and bartacks for added strength and long-term durability. All of the window flaps can be adjusted to multiple positions and all of the models include a bow hanger. In addition to this, the Phantom and Powerhouse (pictured) models include a “blind skirt” which helps control the scent and keeps light from coming through the bottom of the blind. The Powerhouse is an extra-tall blind designed for the archer to shoot while standing.
Call ‘em In Close
Most varmint hand calls look alike, but they surely don’t sound alike. In this case, Point Blank’s new Venom Series calls not only look a little different but they sound a whole lot different, as in better, true-to-life and extra raspy — the enticing sounds you want to hear when trying to fool the sly nature of hard-hunted carnivores. Also, these calls are tough as nails, since they are made of a solid, one-piece acrylic housing using a metal diaphragm, so there’s really nothing to break in the field. The calls are available in a coaxing rodent call, an enticing cottontail, or a raspy jackrabbit. All calls are color coded for easy recognition in the field: the Venom Rodent is clear, Venom Cottontail is green, and the Venom Jackrabbit is red.
The revolutionary HECS STEALTHSCREEN line of high-tech clothing is now available in Mossy Oak Break Up Infinity camouflage pattern. HECS Stealthscreen is a patented hunting clothing technology that effectively reduces the human electromagnetic energy emissions that all living creatures give off, making the wearer significantly less detectable to animals. Wearing HECS Stealthscreen, allows hunters to get closer to more relaxed game than ever before. This unique fabric is designed with a special interlocking grid of extruded conductive carbon yarn that blocks the electromagnetic field. This grid works much like the conductive door grid which protects the user from the kitchen microwave oven.
