Steiner Predator 10x42 LRF Binoculars.  


Steiner Predator 10×42 LRF Binoculars

Steiner packed decades of range-finding experience into the development of the new Predator 10×42 LRF hunting binoculars. Using HD glass, they added a diamond coating for optimum light transmission and high-contrast imaging. These binoculars offer a compact, lightweight design and feature electronic components that are fully integrated into the binocular housing for an optimal grip without protrusions. The built-in angle compensation displays an automatically adjusted distance or line of sight and angle observation. It will range in metres or yards and operates in a variety of modes, including standard, rain, long distance or short distance, and you can quickly learn a landscape with its scan mode. With minimal rotation, its central focusing wheel provides quick and absolute sharpness from close to infinity. It ranges from 5.5 to 1,969 yards, weighs 35.8 ounces and is 6.85 by 5.4 by 2.0 inches in size. Includes the Steiner Heritage Warranty with three years on the electronic components.

Bushnell Nitro 15-45×65 Spotting Scope

Winchester Super X 4 Left-Hand Shotguns.

Winchester Super X 4 Left-Hand Shotguns

When it comes to semi-auto shotguns, lefties have largely been forgotten. This reality was borne out by my lack of success in finding a lefthand semi-auto for my grandson. He ended up with a bottom-ejecting pump. This year, Winchester has introduced a new series of left-hand semi-auto shotguns, the Super X 4 Left Hand. The line includes the Left Hand with a synthetic stock and metal matte finish, the Field with a walnut stock and matte metal finish and the Waterfowl with a synthetic stock and three camo finishes: Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat, Mossy Oak Bottomland and Realtree Max-7. Depending on the model, they are available with three or three-and-a-half-inch chambers and with either 26 or 28-inch barrels. All three models include three chokes: F, M, IC.

MSRP: $1,679 CAD



Nomad’s Leafy Quarter-Zip Pullover & Pant

Designed with the turkey hunter in mind, I see the Leafy quarter-zip pullover and pant having a much broader use, especially for early season archery hunts. Both the pullover and pant utilize a 3D leafy fabric with printing on both sides for the most realistic Mossy Oak Shadow Leaf camo. The quarter-zip pullover offers four-way stretch construction for maximum range of movement, moisture-wicking management, adjustable hood, zip front, zip dump gear pouch, and is breathable, quick drying and lightweight. The pant offers the same moisture-wicking breathability in a two-way stretch fabric, cargo pockets and ever adjust waistband with a button closure. Both can easily be stored in your pack until you reach your stand or hunt area. Sizes: Quarter-zip pullover in M/L-XL/XXL, pant in M-XXXL.
