Gear List

Below is a list of the gear I use for my archery and rifle hunting pursuits. These are products I have found to work well for me. As I upgrade certain items I will update this list. I have come to appreciate each item for its attributes and not because I receive any incentive to promote it.

I appreciate any questions about my choices, and I would welcome the opportunity to evaluate new products. Feel free to contact me at if you have a product you would like me to try and give feedback on.
