So, you scouted all fall, and hunted hard. You’ve been successful in dropping that whitetail, and now you have to get it in your freezer.

Proper Shot Placement 101

Do you know where you should be aiming?

Unfortunately, too many wounded deer are not recovered.

This happens for a number of reasons, such as poor shot selection, arrow flight, or a deer that moves at the wrong time. But one reason that’s no excuse is not knowing where to aim.

Michael Cantrell, founder of Pure Instinct Hunting, has great advice on shot placement.

Todays broadheads are made to smash through flesh and bone, but no broadhead will ever compensate for poor decision-making in the field. There are some bowhunting shots you should never take, and where to aim at a deer largely depends on the situation…[continued]

A Safety Harness for Crossbow Hunters [VIDEO]

Crossbow hunters finally have a safety harness for their needs.

Crossbow hunting is gaining popularity across the Country, and so was the need for a safety harness for crossbow hunters.

Up until recently, crossbow hunters were left out of the loop when it came to a safety harness.  We could use the traditional harness, but we could have used more.

Fortunately, Hunter Safety System stepped up to the plate, and designed a safety vest specifically for the crossbow hunter.

Unlike traditional bows, crossbows have issues related to cocking the crossbow while hunting from an elevated position. When the crossbow is cocked, the treestand safety harnesses’ tether strap tends to fall in front of the hunter, which not only is frustrating but also can tangle with the crossbow and knock off or damage the scope. To eliminate this problem, HSS has added a Tether Stow Strap to the new Crossbow Harness that will safely secure the tether when cocking the bow.

Another feature of this new harness is the deep zippered pocket specifically designed to accommodate the cocking rope which if stowed in a backpack or regular harness pocket can easily get tangled with other gear or fall out of the stand. HSS has also equipped the new Crossbow Harness with a Range Finder Rip Cord that keeps the rangefinder handy yet out of the way and always attached so an accidental drop is never a concern.

Designed on the popular HSS Hybrid Flex chassis, the new HSS Crossbow Harness features the same 1.25-inch upper-body webbing, shock absorbing tether and waist buckle. The individual, padded hexagon shoulder straps on the HSS Crossbow Harness provide comfort and maximum flexibility and the ample pockets—including a secure mesh pocket designed for a cell phone—make it easy to store all of the necessary crossbow and other hunting gear. Weighing only 2.5 lbs., the new HSS Crossbow Harness meets current industry standards recognized by the Treestand Manufacturers Association.
