ALPS OutdoorZ Introduces the Dash Panel Blind

NEW HAVEN, Mo – ALPS OutdoorZ, premiere manufacturer of extreme-duty hunting packs and gear for outdoor enthusiasts, announces an innovative solution for on-the-move ground hunters called the Dash Panel Blind.

ALPS-OutdoorZDeveloped primarily for turkey hunters but equally suitable for a wide variety of hunting applications, the Dash Panel Blind is a hybrid system that combines the key benefits of traditional pop-up blinds with the highmobility and lightweight of traditional panel blinds.

The Dash Panel Blind’s three-panel construction offers a generous three-directions of ground-level concealment for one to two hunters. This free-standing blind utilizes a single-hub design for compact, on-the-move storage, quick deployment, and stability in challenging conditions, making it ideal for “run-and-gun” style hunting or for establishing morning, evening, or all-day ambush points to meet changing game patterns.

To better accommodate the needs of rifle, shotgun, or compound/crossbow shooters, the Dash Panel Blind features a SILENT-TRAC window system across the front panel. Top and bottom window panels allow hunters to independently and silently adjust the window panels to achieve the optimal balance of concealment and shooting function. Mesh windows on each side skirt can also be raised or lowered as needed.

The Dash Panel Blind weighs 5 lbs., 8 oz. with a 54-inch height and adjustable open dimension of 40 to 80 inches. It comes with attached ground stakes, an interior mesh pocket, and is offered in Mossy Oak® Obsession™ camo.

Montana Decoy Introduces New Whitetail Doe Decoy

Jan. 11, 2021 — The new for 2021 Trixie whitetail decoy is one deadly doe. Tested from Montana to South Carolina, it has proven to be one of the most effective whitetail decoys on the market. The secret ingredients are higherdetailed printing and a unique calming pose that works on both bucks and does.

“We have all been amazed with the performance of this decoy in the field,” Montana Decoy Founder Jerry McPherson said. “I personally have had some of my best-ever whitetail hunts here in Montana using Trixie!”

Montana DecoyWhile the decoy features some new printing techniques, it also boasts the lightweight design, ease of portability and superb realism that Montana Decoys are known for. The twist-fold design and jointed leg poles mean even a life-size 2D decoy can fit in your daypack.

Trixie also features two of Montana Decoy’s popular Teaser Tails for that just-right touch of motion and extra realism. The tails attach with magnets, so a hunter can apply scent and then replace with a fresh tail as the season changes or progresses.

Look for Trixie to debut on dealer shelves and montanadecoy.com in late Spring 2021.

About Montana Decoy: Created in 1996 by Jerry McPherson, Montana Decoy got its start from an average hunter trying to improve his bowhunting success. Tormented by an uncooperative bull elk, McPherson returned to his truck, thinking about how he could design a packable decoy without any unnecessary bulk and weight. McPherson found inspiration from folding band saw blades. He combined an actual photograph of a cow elk in the wild with a unique and now patented twist-and-fold concept to hold open the decoy. Montana Decoy currently offers turkey, elk, whitetail, mule deer, antelope and predator options along with Moo Cow confidence decoys. All are easy to use, lightweight and feature ultrarealistic HD photography.

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – When 5MM AXIS came on the scene it revolutionized hunting arrows. The small shaft innovation offered better accuracy and mitigated friction to retain velocity and add penetration. Now for 2021, Easton has taken the concept to the next level with the introduction of the NEW 4MM AXIS Long Range.

EastonThe 4MM AXIS will offer bowhunters even more of what they want in a micro diameter arrow. AXIS Long Range promises more speed to the target, driving broadheads deeper upon impact. “It also adds penetration as the shaft passes through with less friction behind the broadhead channel” said Gary Cornum, Easton Director of Marketing. “Millions of successful hunts testify to the awesome effectiveness of a simple concept that equates to more downed big game—it’s like getting magnum ammunition for your bow.”

Made in Easton’s Utah factory, the AXIS Long Range is engineered with specialized carbon-fiber to increase arrow velocity.

Crush And Ani-Logics Outdoors Join Forces

Ani-LogicsAni-Logics Outdoors, together with Lee and Tiffany Lakosky of the CRUSH with Lee and Tiffany, are pleased to announce their new partnership to take whitetail deer herd management to the next level. Lee explains the reason for the new partnership, “We really like the fact that Ani-Logics has taken a scientific approach to feeding deer. We were looking for a deer feed company that not only offers amazing attraction, but has a complete, yearround approach to deer herd management, including supplements, minerals, and attractants for every season.” Both Lee and Tiffany, and Ani-Logics, like most hunters, share the philosophy that, “There is No Off Season”. The Lakosky’s, along with Ani-Logics believe shooting mature trophy bucks isn’t just a coincidence or good fortune; it takes years of strict deer herd management, perseverance, dedication, and hard work out in the field during the off season to prepare for that one perfect shot.

CEO Marc Freese, of Ani-Logics Outdoors, echoes the importance of the Lakosky’s disciplined approach, “Growing a trophy class buck isn’t just luck, it is a result of great genetics, plus superior nutrition. Nutrition is often the underestimated variable that we can control; by offering balanced nutrients at the right times of year, we can help deer reach their maximum potential, improve antler growth, promote immune system function, and increase the deer’s chances of fighting off potentially deadly secondary diseases. Mother nature doesn’t always provide deer with what they need; we studied deer livers to see what was missing in their diets and developed formulas and products specific to providing deer with these crucial missing nutrients.”

Through this partnership, the Lakosky’s will offer their line of CRUSH products made exclusively by Ani-Logics Outdoors. The upgraded lineup includes granular, liquid, block, and brick attractants, powered with Ani-Logics Outdoors’ proprietary Ani-Shield TX4 Technology. Ani-Shield TX4 gives deer critical nutrients that nature doesn’t always provide, filling the nutritional gap. Ani-shield TX4 includes vitamins for overall health, key bone-building minerals, laboratory-tested essential oils, and digestive and immune boosting next generation probiotics, not to mention incredible attraction!

Ani-Logics uses science, backed by research, with 70 plus years of experience in vet clinics, autogenous vaccine laboratories, and animal nutrition companies. Plans for an expanded lineup with exciting new products are also in the works. Freese says, “With Lee and Tiffany joining our team, we are now honored to partner with two of the most respected deer hunting legends in the industry, Lee and Tiffany Lakosky and the Drury Outdoors team. Together, their extensive knowledge of whitetails and deer herd management are valuable resources as we work together towards the development of future products.”

Size, Speed, and Comfort Redefined with TenPoint’s 26.5” Long, 440 Feet-Per-Second Havoc RS440

MOGADORE, OH – TenPoint Crossbow Technologies’ recently launched the industry’s fastest crossbow-perinch – the NEW Havoc RS440. Delivering 440 FPS with same-hole accuracy from a platform measuring only 26.5” long and 7.5” narrow, the Havoc RS440 redefines compact crossbow performance and comfort, while providing safe de-cocking with the revolutionary ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system.

“The Havoc is the most comfortable compact crossbow on the market. Period.,” said TenPoint CEO Rick Bednar. “When we launched a compact bow project, we wanted to create a bow that felt good to shooters of all sizes, while implementing our reverse-draw technology that allows us to deliver unmatched speed, power, and accuracy. Shoulder it and shoot it – you’ll understand why it redefines the compact crossbow in size, speed, comfort, and noise level.”

RS440
RS440 – Veil Alpine camo

The Havoc’s reduction in length to just 26.5” overall is accomplished with the development of TenPoint’s NEW 16-inch -MICRO-TRAC barrel and NEW ultra-light, twopiece TEC-TACTICAL stock. The fluted aluminum barrel also reduces the flight deck surface by an incredible 50%, increasing accuracy and providing string life in excess of 1,000-shots, while the new stock features a tactical styled butt stock, as well as a hollow pocket that houses the ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system. In addition, the stock’s butt plate adjusts up to 1” to provide all shooters the ideal fit, and combines with the NEW EVO-X Marksman Elite Scope to yield perfect eye-level alignment.

The NEW EVO-X Marksman Elite Scope, included in the bow package, features fully multi-coated 2-8X optics, capable of precision down-range accuracy out to 100-yards. A variable speed design compatible with crossbows shooting up to 500 FPS, the Marksman Elite scope features external Target Turrets for easy adjustment to windage and elevation (one click represents ½” MOA at 100-yards) for unmatched long-range accuracy.

The Havoc features a patented reverse-draw bow assembly that draws the string through the riser, creating a 13.5-inch power stroke. The increased power stroke generates more speed with less draw weight – creating a smoother, quieter shot. The elongated power stroke also keeps the arrow nock engaged with the string before release – this is a critical component in performance, as the longer the nock remains engaged with the string, the more accurate the crossbow will shoot. In addition, this center-mounted riser provides superior balance, eliminating the “nose-heavy” feel of traditional crossbows and making it easier to hold steady, increasing the shooters accuracy.

The RX7-Cam system rotates an incredible 360-degrees to produce speeds of 440 feet-per-second with a 400-grain arrow. The crossbow’s revolutionary Vector-Quad cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two which eliminates cam lean and generates straightnock travel leading to same-hole down-range accuracy.

The ACUslide, the talk of the 2020 crossbow market, features the company’s groundbreaking Auto-Brake Gear System, which allows for silent cocking and safe and controlled de-cocking of the crossbow. The Auto-Brake Gear System eliminates the potential of losing control which can lead to injury or costly bow damage during the cocking or de-cocking process. While cocking and de-cocking with the ACUslide, the user can remove their hand from the handle at any point, with no other action required – and the handle will stop in place. The 6-inch XTEND Adjustable Crank Handle reduces cocking effort to 5-pounds and stores securely into the butt-stock.

The Havoc RS440 features the company’s S1 trigger. This 2-stage, zero-creep design features an advanced rollersear system that delivers a consistent crisp, 3.5-pound pull. The trigger is equipped with a DFI (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor) and is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to reduce noise and vibration. An integrated string stop system is also included to further reduce noise and vibration.

RS440 – Graphite Gray
RS440 – Graphite Gray

The crossbow weighs just 7.5-pounds (w/o accessories), measures only 26.5-inches (w/o stirrup) in length, and shoots a supercharged 440 feet-per-second with the included 400-grain arrow EVO-X CenterPunch 16 carbon crossbow arrow.

The Havoc RS440 comes with the new EVO-X CenterPunch 16 carbon crossbow arrows. The ultra-accurate 16” arrows weigh 400-grains and feature 17.5% FOC. Each arrow is inspected for straightness to within .001-inch and each package is weight-matched to within 1-grain per arrow.

Decorated in Veil Alpine camo or Graphite Gray, the Havoc RS440 ships completely assembled and includes a Ready-To-Hunt package. 

The package includes:

  • ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system
  • Matching Veil Alpine or black Evo-X Marksman Elite Scope
  • 6-pack of EVO-X CenterPunch 16 Premium Carbon Crossbow Arrows (.001” straightness, 400-grains)
