Best New Products Part 3

Best New Products Part 3

As we wrap up the best new products of 2016 that were revealed at the ATA show in Louisville, I wanted to finalize the best of the best products. So now we will highlight the products that fall into the miscellaneous category. The remainder of the items that I made note of at the show.

COOLERS: Yeti established the premium cooler market and still is setting the standard for others to follow. While there are others out there now and new ones every year competing within this market space. Yeti still has a strong hold on the market and for good reason. Again this year they are introducing more and better products for others to immolate and follow. First there is their new Hopper 40. Building on the popularity of their Hopper bags, this new size will fill a need for many customers. Capable of holding 36 cans plus ice. The Hopper 40 features the same rugged features on the other Hoppers. It’s an ideal size for a day boating or picnicking with the family.

And to help keep the ice cold Yeti has introduced a new size of its popular Yeti Ice. The one pound size is small enough for your lunch pail or add a few together for your back country trip to help keep ice longer.

Lastly are the Rambler bottles offered by Yeti this spring. These insulated bottles with large screw on caps are ideal for keeping drinks or food for hours and hours. These bottles are built to go wherever there’s a need for ice cold or piping hot beverages. The Rambler Bottle offers a great design that includes a wide mouth with Over-the-NoseTM technology for easy loading, drinking, and cleaning. The TripleHaulTM cap is comfortable to grip, 100% leakproof, and insulated. You’ll also get all the benefits of a Rambler, including durable 18/8 stainless steel construction and double-wall vacuum insulation that keeps your beverages cold (or hot) while preventing condensation from building up on the bottle. Three sizes make this a great choice for the duck blind, tackle box of back pack. Whether you are sipping coffee in your tree stand or eating soup from a duck blind the Yeti Bottle will keep your beverages for you at any temperature.

These offerings by Yeti are some of the best I’ve seen in a while for the stainless and cooler market and you know you cannot go wrong with the name Yeti.    www.yeticoolers.com


While I am partial to rubber boots here in the south and cold weather boots are really not an issue for us during hunting season. I still have not found a better boot than Muck Boots for keeping my feet dry and comfortable enough to walk miles and miles in during long treks for big game. In the non rubber boot category, Danner is still the top of the heap. Especially when looking for rugged and durable high country boots, Danner Boots are still made in the USA and great products.



In this highly competitive market there are features and prices that run the gamut. What I personally look for are three things in a good game camera. First is battery life; I cannot stand going to check a camera only to discover its batteries died a week ago. Second is video quality, and lastly is life of the camera. When looking at all of these together, Bushnell excelled above all of the others. Their new Trophy Cam has a battery life of twelve months, and personal experience of an older model exceeded this time using regular alkaline batteries. The 1080p video and sound recording is outstanding and lastly, they are in the two hundred dollar range making them affordable for most consumers. Comparable brands with the same features are often close to a thousand dollars and none can compete with the battery life of Bushnell. Lastly, while leaving the camera out year around, I have gotten almost four years’ worth of work from one camera. Without hesitation the Bushnell line of game cameras are some of the best.



2016 promises to be a great year for the hunting industry. More and more people are joining the ranks of sportsmen and women and the technology is on the horizon is hopeful and exciting. As these companies push the envelope, there is no telling where we will see the archery world and the hunting world in just a few years. Stay tuned and get ready for some of the best action yet.
