Benelli – Testimonial
Here is why I shoot a Benelli. For the water-fowlers out there, you can relate to this; we all know how difficult it is to get out there and prepare ourselves for that successful duck hunt. You get up early, you put your decoys out, you have prepared you blind, for your gun to fail or jam at this point, would be frustrating beyond belief. This is one of the main reasons I choose to shoot a Benelli. The Benelli offers the hunter the ability to harness several different things. Watch video to find out more.
Under Armour – Gear Tech – Layering
Ever have a problem staying warm and dry when you are in the field? Here are a few guidelines to avoid such issues. Do not wear cotton based clothing as part of a layering system. Cotton might be fine for a little yard work, but once you get active, cotton actually works against you. Cotton traps moisture as opposed to releasing it. Leading clothing managers such as Under Armour have our backs.
Under Armour – Gear Tech – Scent Control
I am sure a lot of you hunters out there have hear some ups and downs about different scent control system in outdoor apparel. For years carbon based systems had led the way in this category. UA has taken the next step in introducing zeolite technology infused with silver.

It’s no secret that using attractants while you are in the field, raises your level of success. The biggest problem is trying to figure out what attractants to use. There are a few main types. Property and game management should be the main focus. I make it a staple that when I use attractants to have the mindset of nutrition, attraction and then action. The biggest thing to remember is to stay focused and make that shot count.

Evolved Harvest – Hints on Hunting
If you are looking to plan and manage effective food plots on your property year round there are a few things you have to take into consideration. First is soil preparation. If I need to get to an area that I can not get farm machinery in, then I will use a no till formula. A great thing for this is Evolved Harvest Throw & Go. All I need is a normal garden rake to clear debris, throw the seed down, and let mother nature take care of the rest.
I like to think of the F/A brands like a tool. If I was a carpenter, I wouldn’t go to work with out my hammer. As a hunter and hunting for a living, I sure don’t head into the field without having the right decoys and blinds. These decoys and blinds have some pretty nice features, like paint schemes and comforts, but when the time comes you can get them down right dirty or muddy and they will still preform. I wouldn’t hit the field without them.

Canada’s got a new future on the hunting/fishing/outdoor horizon with Cabela’s Outdoor Stores hitting this country. For years Canada has been left in the dark when it came to big outdoor retailers, that is until now!. Cabela’s understands the needs of Canadian outdoors people, men, women and children alike, and you can be sure that no matter what hunting product you are looking for, or that favourite fishing lure in a particular colour, I would bet that with one visit to a Cabela’s store, or a quick visit to Cabela’s online, that you will find what you are looking for. It makes sense for me, a guy that has numerous adventures per year to make a stop at a Cabela’s store and get everything that I am looking for in one location. A big Canadian shout out, and welcome to Cabela’s Canada “Worlds Foremost Outfitter”.
We were out in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and Cabela’s was at it again launching a new store. We have the whole Canadian Tradition family out in to welcome Cabela’s to Saskatoon.
