Any duck hunter who has been at this great pursuit for any length of time has experienced the exasperation of dealing with hopelessly tangled decoys.
Duck hunting is hard work, no doubt about it. Just getting to a duck hole is often a
rigorous adventure, whether it’s a dark-of-night boat ride or a long trudge in waders
pulling mud through chest-deep water. Then it’s time to set the decoy spread. All
that time spent in the garage the night before the hunt, carefully wrapping decoy
lines, securing anchors and bagging the dekes… a waste of time. With shooting light
approaching and the sound of wings overhead, you’re still trying to untangle decoys.
Decoy Buddy, by Game Smart, is a weighted 8-ounce reel that hooks onto your
floating decoy. Simply pull out the amount of line needed for the depth of water you
are hunting, and toss out the decoy. No wasted time unwinding decoy lines, and best of all, no tangled mess of decoy lines to deal with in the dark. Continue reading
The need for high quality, great-sounding Electronic Game Calls has never been higher. The exhilarating experience of hunting with electronic calls is attracting many newcomers to the world of electronic calls for the first time.

Vermin like coyotes are taking too big a bite out of wildlife populations in many areas, and those sportsmen realize something needs to be done. In either case, the new FLX Series of Electronic Game Calls from Flextone Game Calls has you covered.
Flextone Game Calls is proud to announce the FLX Series of Electronic Game Calls, new for 2015. The FLX Series includes four models ranging from the easy-to-handle FLX 50, a lightweight remote caller, on up to the FLX 1000. Continue reading

The Hail Mary in football is that desperate, last-hope long bomb of a pass into the end zone as the seconds tick off the scoreboard clock. In duck hunting, a hail call to a distant flock with one of the two new Hail Mary Mallard Calls from Flextone is far from an act of desperation.
The new Hail Mary duck calls from Flextone offer reach beyond the range of other duck calls. Attract those distant birds with a loud, sustained sequence that doesn’t wear the caller down.
Flextone’s new Hail Mary Single and Double Reed Mallard calls are designed for open-water hunting when volume and reach is needed. The Hail Mary features smaller port holes to provide added back pressure. This means the caller can scream
louder and longer with hail calls and follow-up with comeback calls without running out of breath. Continue reading
Wild Rice – © USFWS
We are getting our wild rice harvest in and it looks really good but it is going to be in very limited supply. Due to high water and other weather issues, wild rice seed production is about 1\3 of what it usually is. If you are interested in wild rice seed, we highly recommend to place an order soon to lock it in.
We are taking orders now and will start coordinating shipping with you in a week or two as we process the harvested wild rice.
“FALL ORDERS” will be available to ship in a week or two. Only people that have ponds that freeze over should order “fall” rice as it requires cold stratification to germinate. We will contact you to coordinate a shipping time…we will not ship without first confirming a date with you.
“SPRING ORDERS” will be shipped in the spring, but you can place your order now to secure your wild rice seed. People in southern warmer climates (ponds don’t freeze over) need to order SPRING rice…unless you want to order fall rice and try to cold stratify it yourself. If you do not secure your spring rice, we can not assure that we will have any left on inventory when spring comes. If you lock it in now, then we will store it over winter and cold stratify it for you so it is ready in the spring. Continue reading

What hunter doesn’t want tighter and more consistent patterns, while at the same
time extending the effective range of the shotgun? The Precision Hunter chokes
from industry leader Trulock are custom-built extended tubes that do just that.
An extended choke tube like the Precision Hunter offers a better pattern with fewer
“holes” than a flush-mounted tube. The extended choke tube from Trulock also does
a better job handling heavier payloads of shot and larger shot sizes. Pattern your
shotgun with a Precision Hunter extended choke, and you will see that this choke
tube will increase your effective barrel length while increasing muzzle velocity. Continue reading
There are several great reasons to add a Redhead® Pit Stop Layout Blind to your waterfowl hunting arsenal. One reason is you want to disappear when ducks or geese approach. It sounds simple. Yet the birds’ eyes are so keen, and pressured waterfowl become so wary, invisibility is a tall order.
Besides blending flawlessly with the background, a good layout blind must be comfortable, rugged, lightweight, easily hidden, and versatile. The Pit Stop Blind meets every demand. At its core is a lightweight, collapsible steel frame. It deploys in seconds and folds to packable size just as quickly with no nuts, bolts, or pins to lose in the dark, and no tools required.
The shell is 600 D fabric in Realtree Max-5 camouflage for maximum versatility in the field, among the cattails, or on a mid-river sandbar. Brushing blinds is tedious and stressful as the morning’s first birds buzz the decoys, but the PitStop’s brush straps are ample in both quantity and size so you can get the job done fast. Once you’re inside, a padded headrest and precisely angled back support allow you to wait in comfort, ready for instant “bust ‘em” action. The large size allows easy movement inside the blind, and there are flagging ports for both your hands. Mesh pockets keep shells, calls, dog collar controller, and more conveniently in reach.
Not only is the RedHead® Pit Stop Layout Blind fast, portable, and comfortable, it also helps tote your gear wherever you need to go. A compartment under the seat is perfect for rag decoys, silhouettes, sock decoys, or other gear. A roomy, external, hands-free pocket can carry your goose flags and other gear. Comfortable, padded backpack straps center the blind and its contents squarely on your back — even when terrain goes from bad to muck. Continue reading
