Hot Archery Products to Consider

Customers will be on the lookout this summer for these items and others in your store. Here are some things to consider that have been put through the test by our team.

Hot Archery Products to Consider

The Yellow Jacket YJ-450 Plus block targets from Morrell Targets are designed to stop arrows from crossbow, bow and airbow arrows traveling up to 450 feet per second. They have four sides for longer life, are constructed with 94 layers to stop arrows, and are freestanding.

Shooting sticks can be made from a tree limb, but that limb won’t adjust, break down or be lightweight. Ameristep makes a simple, lightweight shooting stick that adjusts from 32 to 72 inches. It has twist-locks for easy adjustments, is made of aluminum, and can double for big game or turkey season. Additionally, it is a great, affordable and inexpensive bit of insurance as a center support for the hub-spoke blinds. Raise it to 72 inches, perhaps put a block or rock under the bottom if necessary, and center the V-Yoke under the blind hub. It will help snow and rain roll off.

Plano’s new Stealth archery cases are super for crossbows and bows. The cases have a fabric-coated exterior over EVA-molded shells. Drop in a crossbow or bow, secure with buckles and go. They’re not airline approved, but for truck and camp travel, these are great. Gone are the days of the giant, hard plastic cases (unless your customers are flying) for local trips. The Stealth cases fit most standard crossbows up to 37.5 inches long and 18.85 inches wide.

Ameristep’s new-for-2021 Pro Series Extreme View Hub Blind should turn heads thanks to its large footprint and one-way mesh. That’s right, you can see out, but whatever’s outside can’t see inside. It’s like one-way glass. The Extreme View has five sides, is 37 percent larger than standard blinds, and offers 12 window openings that move quietly thanks to the Silent Slide system. Its Durashell Plus fabric will withstand the elements, and a black interior helps hunters disappear.
