Bow Spider Introduces the Crossbow Spider

Bow Spider, the quickest and easiest bow retrieval system on the market, is pleased to announce the long anticipated introduction of the Crossbow Spider. This new system is designed to accommodate most crossbows on the market today.

Crafted with meticulous precision, utilizing premium materials, the Crossbow Spider offers an innovative design with an exceptionally durable construction that is built to withstand the rigors of the outdoors, providing a reliable and long-lasting solution for various forms of transportation. It is proudly made in the USA, embodying the continued Bow Spider commitment to exceptional craftmanship of its products.

“Our customers have been so pleased with the Bow Spider, but many shoot crossbows as well or have entirely switched to them,” said David Merrill, owner. “Carrying a crossbow in the field can be very cumbersome. The new Crossbow Spider alleviates all those problems and makes it safe, comfortable and easy for anyone to use.”

There is no doubt that crossbow hunting has grown in popularity across the country. In 2016, 15 percent of the archery harvest was attributed to crossbow hunters and by 2021 it had grown to 51.5 percent. In fact, you will find loyal crossbow hunters in just about every state and in every age bracket today. This is why Bow Spider is introducing the new Crossbow Spider.

Like the original Bow Spider, the Crossbow Spider features the ingenious design that allows the user to carry the bow hands-free. It is no longer necessary to carry a case or a sling – now you can effortlessly navigate your hunting grounds or archery range with your crossbow securely and conveniently stored on your side or your pack. You can also securely store your crossbow with the Crossbow Spider in your car, your treestand, at home or hunting camp.

NDA Premieres “Identifying Antlerless Deer in the Field” Video and Quiz

The National Deer Association is pleased to announce the premiere of a new educational video project, “How to Identify Antlerless Deer in the Field,” produced in partnership with The Bearded Buck. The 17-minute video uses live footage of wild whitetail deer in order to teach viewers how to separate adult does from younger does and doe fawns from buck fawns. The video includes an 18-deer quiz at the end.

Balancing a deer population with the habitat and available food requires harvesting the appropriate number of does. This may be a lot in some areas, a few in others and none in more isolated cases. Being able to separate the does by age in the field allows hunters to selectively harvest antlerless deer–whether their goal is to harvest more mature does and reduce the deer herd, or harvest younger does and allow the deer herd to grow.

In this new video, NDA Chief Conservation Officer and wildlife biologist Kip Adams shares tips on how to separate adult does from younger does in the field–and even how to identify fawns (deer under 1 year of age) as does or bucks.

The 18-deer quiz at the clip’s conclusion allows viewers to practice what they learned throughout the video. Here, viewers are provided a few seconds to identify wild deer from live footage in the field. After the pause, Kip reveals his analysis of the deer in each of the nine scenarios, with 18 deer being shown in all.

“The ability to separate live antlerless deer into two general age groups – fawns and adults – is obtainable for all hunters with a little knowledge and some practice,” said Adams. “The three key characteristics are body size and shape, head size and shape and animal behavior. This is especially pertinent when you have a group of deer in front of you during hunting season. Estimating the sex and age of live antlerless deer is a great skill for hunters.”

Savage Announces Latest Serve The Land Film With Backcountry Hunters and Anglers

Savage Arms announces the release of its latest Serve The Land episode: Fence Removal | Beers, Bands, and Barbed Wire Strands. This complete Serve The Land story follows a community event in Gunnison, Colorado hosted by Backcountry Hunters and Anglers (BHA). The BHA event, and subsequent Savage film, celebrates environmental stewardship, conservation efforts and wildlife protection.

“We’re proud to have placed our support behind a cause that positively impacts and protects wildlife habitats,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage Arms. “The BHA group in Gunnison, Colorado was successful in tearing down five miles of old and out of use barbed wire, and this latest Serve The Land episode commemorates those efforts.”

The main event of Beers, Bands and Barbed Wire Strands brought together the Bureau of Land Management, Colorado Parks and Wildlife and countless volunteers and sponsors. The group worked together to remove the out of date fencing which had been pinpointed by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife as a source of mortalities and injuries to wildlife in the area.

“When you have old broken wire that’s on the ground and in a state of disrepair, it’s even less obvious than a well-maintained fence so both of these can be hard on wildlife,” said Brandon Diamond, Colorado Parks and Wildlife Area Wildlife Manager.

After the successful removal of the fencing, the group celebrated with food, music, and a raffle – where attendees had the chance to win a Savage Arms 110 High Country.

Truss Any Chicken or Turkey in Seconds and Say Goodbye to Dry Chicken

Turbo Trusser makes it easy to cook the perfect chicken or turkey every time

The Turbo Trusser is the easy, reusable solution that eliminates the need for butchers’ twine and helps amateur or professional chefs truss a chicken or turkey in just seconds. For years people have been preparing their chicken or turkey upside down, wrestling raw birds while trying to secure them with butcher’s twine, and over and over the result has been a dry, flavorless chicken or turkey that no one wants to eat. 

The Turbo Trusser is a new way to truss, and it is simple for anyone to use. Just attach the wing hooks to the Turbo Trusser, place the Turbo Trusser between the chicken or turkey legs and place one leg in each leg slot. Then, connect the wing hooks to each of the wings. The two hooks firmly hold the bird in place, ensuring that it cooks evenly, and all sides are exposed to even heat.

The durable stainless steel, made in the USA gadget helps cook chicken or turkey more evenly for juicier meat by keeping the bird in a compact, trussed shape so the juices stay locked inside the meat and don’t escape during cooking. The result is a tender, moist, and flavorful meal. Turbo Trusser can also help keep stuffing from drying out. The versatility of the Turbo Trusser makes it the perfect accessory for any kitchen, and it can be used for a wide range of cooking styles and techniques such as ovens, grills, smokers, roasters, rotisseries, deep fryers, and the chicken Turbo Trusser can even be used in the air fryer. It’s also dishwasher safe for easy post-cooking clean up. 

“We realized the need for an easier way to truss a chicken or turkey from our own experiences,” said Brian Halasinski, co-founder of Turbo Trusser. “After more than a dozen prototypes we finally figured out the best way to help people master the skill of cooking the perfect chicken or turkey, without the mess of butchers’ twine,” Kirk Hyust, co-founder of Turbo Trusser explained.

Big & J Introduces COTTON CRAVE Quality Deer Feed

Each year, hunters seek out that magical ingredient capable of luring deer in from afar, increasing their herd population, and fostering the growth of larger bucks. Among hunters who feed deer to enhance the quality of their bucks and promote the herd’s overall health, their well-kept secret is finally out – cottonseed! 

Many hunters feed cottonseed to their deer because it’s loaded with nutrients and high in protein. The problem many hunters face with cottonseed is its lack of aroma and appeal to deer. Big & J has proudly partnered with Fortified Cottonseed to bring hunters a solution to this problem – the new COTTON CRAVE quality deer feed. 

Hunters can find COTTON CRAVE exclusively at their local Tractor Supply Company. The new COTTON CRAVE delivers the same proven ingredients and long-range aroma that Big & J is known for among hunters by taking it to the next level with the incorporation of unique advantages from Fortified Cottonseed. 

New COTTON CRAVE quality deer feed will provide deer with the proper nutrition hunters demand. COTTON CRAVE is an excellent choice for feeders, aiding hunters in attracting more deer to their camera sites and stands. More importantly, COTTON CRAVE will keep deer coming and provide hunters with more opportunities to encounter bigger bucks for years to come.

Duck Commander Announces Release of THE BLIND A Robertson Story of Love and Redemption

Duck Commander, a world renowned leader in duck call manufacturing joins Tread Lively, GND Media Group, and Fathom Events in announcing the release of THE BLIND–premiering in theaters nationwide September 28th.

Based on the life of Duck Commander’s Phil and Kay Robertson, THE BLIND dives into never before seen stories of the founding family as they find redemption through love and faith, and learn where to discover strength during times of hardship.

“A lot of people know the Robertsons. They know a little bit about our story. They have seen us on Duck Dynasty, but they don’t know the backstory of what actually got us here,” said Korie Robertson, a producer of the film. “I think this is actually the most important part of the Robertson family story.”

“Without what happens in The Blind, there would be no dynasty,” added Willie Robertson, Duck Commander CEO and an executive producer of The Blind. “This is the story you haven’t heard. We made this movie so people would know that if you’ve got troubles, there’s a way out.”

THE BLIND shows that no one is beyond the grace of God, and no one is so far gone that they cannot turn their life around.

The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies Applauds Congress’ Endorsement of Funding for Critical Outdoor Youth Education Programming

Today, during the business session of the 113th Annual Meeting of the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies, the directors unanimously endorsed and applauded members of Congress for advancing bipartisan legislation to ensure students and schools can continue to access Department of Education funding for archery, hunter education, recreational shooting, and other outdoor enrichment programming. 

On Wednesday, September 27, 2023, the Senate passed the Protecting Hunting Heritage and Education Act (H.R. 5110), a bipartisan bill which now heads to the President’s desk for signature. This bill will address the unintended consequences caused by the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA) and its impact on federal funding for hunter education, archery in schools, wilderness courses, and many other important educational enrichment programs. The unanimous Senate passage of H.R. 5110 comes shortly after the House passed the bill Tuesday night on an impressive vote of 424 – 1.“We are grateful for congressional champions who worked together expeditiously on a bipartisan solution to safeguard Department of Education funding for these important youth outdoor programs,” said Chuck Sykes, Director of the Alabama Division of Wildlife & Freshwater Fisheries and President of the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. “We urge President Biden to swiftly sign this bipartisan affirmation of funding for these important outdoor enrichment opportunities.”

The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies—the organization that represents North America’s fish and wildlife agencies—promotes sound resource management and conservation, and speaks on important fish and wildlife issues.
