Product Information & Facts Ask any hunter how important good, effective camouflage is to the success of any hunt and the reply will be unanimous. Camouflage is absolutely essential! The only problem was, little thought had ever been given to one of the most important aspects of effective camouflage.
The eyes, may indeed be ‘The windows to the soul’, but for the hunter they present three other, major problems.
1. Man is a predator and like all predators our eyes are positioned in the front of the head as opposed to the side of the head placement of prey animals. This placement allows us to focus and gauge depth but also makes us an easily recognizable threat.
2. Man is the only animal, besides the moose, in the woods with whites in our eyes. Again, this is easily detected, making man an easily recognizable threat to prey game.
3. Although a hunter is capable of remaining still, the eyes are constantly moving. In fact, we move our eyes more than any other part of our body.
CAMOVISION™ Eye Wear solves these problems by expertly hiding the eyes behind a camouflaged lens. The wearer can see out, but nothing can see in. The result is total, complete, effective camouflage.

Cameras & Accessories
Hey I guess I'm like anybody else and like to share my story right away with everyone so I picked up this digital camera at Ritz for around $200
I absolutely love how automatic this camera is. Just set it and forget it is always my motto. Also the 9 power zoom is exactly what I'm looking for. If my scope can catch it my camera will as well.
It's not the cameras fault, but I wish it was a little more rugged and I didn't have to be concerned about it as much. Since last season I've been taking it afield with me whenever I go and the occasional trip to the lake. I guess I'm just not used to having something delicate with me. So far it's survived the occasional fall although it hasn't taken any direct impacts.
I think it's doing fine. With some of the controls you have to take you gloves off, It's not necessarily made for being a heavy outdoor camera, but I guess if it was it would be a lot heftier and bigger which is the last thing I want is more weight.
I'm happy with it and it let's me catch shots of things I don't need to shoot in order to show off. I guess what they say is true a picture is worth a thousand words. Thanks Hunting-Fishing-Gear this is the site I've been looking for. Most review sites are just pushing something. Here you get honest, common sense reviews from people using the products. It's been a long time coming.

Whitetail Deer Archery Target
I bought this at walmart just two days ago. $50.00 plus taxs.
Where do we start, first off it looks like the damn thing has been on the Atkins diet, hell my dog is bigger than this thing. The foam or what's left of it is just plain cheap and isn't holding up to my blunts at all. I can just imagine what will happen when I start practicing with my old Wasps. The grounding pins aren't big enough and the dog ends up falling over after a couple of shots. They should give you a few bags of mud to really plant the mother.
Cheaper than the ex-wife and at least when she fell over it was a good thing. Come to think of it, she had holes all over her just like the dog.
What country this came from should have kept this thing to eat. If I could find the slip I'd be taking this thing back tonight if it survives the gang coming over.

Pirahna 5 Fish Finder
My Boss is going through a divorce so I took it off his hands and all he wanted was $80.00. I've seen these for close to $200.00 at local tackle stops.
It goes all the way down to 600 feet which is good for some of the lakes I fish. The display is nice compared to some others I've seen that have to be shaded just to see the screens output. It also have the water temperature feature which is a lot better than ten years ago when you had to check it by hand. Kids now days don't know how good they have it.
I have some problems hearing and I'm not sure if it's the tone I can't hear or just not loud enough. Sometimes my wife has to let me know when the tones are going off, but I guess you can't blame it on the machine.
Solid buttons and the menu seems to be well thought out. The unit seems like it will stand up to most anything Mothernature brings on.
I feel real bad for taking this off my boss's hands. Maybe when he gets back on his feet and has time for fishing I may give it back to him, yeah but then again maybe not.
Baby Grand Lite
I bought this last year at Van's Tackle and Gear shop. I laid out around seventy bucks for it.
When you read what I don't like you'll understand. The concept was there, just didn't work out right.
I wanted a small stand that I could hang in a real tight area on the back of my buddy's property. I didn't want to pay a lot as the area I would be hanging it was on his far edge and not to far from a road that would allow a lot of people to see it once the leaves fall. The area has a lot of scrubs with only a couple of trees I could hang stands in. I am 6 foot and a half and didn't think I would have a lot of room and I certainly didn't. That was the problem, I felt like one of the Flying Lewinda's or something. I don't know of a reason that a stand can't have a nice big platform and still not be heavy.
The stand is well made from a quality stand point, my issue is with the design size.
I am going to give the stand and it's hunting location to my Nephew to hunt in when he arrives for the season. He's 12 and kind of small for his age so he shouldn't have a problem with it. It's a nice small stand.
