3. Tight Spot 5 Arrow Quiver Black Right Hand
You’ve experimented with lots of quivers over the years, but never quite found the right one.Some quivers just don’t fit snugly onto your bow, which can affect the accuracy of your shot.Others just aren’t constructed with quality material, so they can wear out fast and barely hold your arrows.The Tight Spot 5 Arrow Quiver is specifically designed to fit tight to your bow, minimizing torque and reducing vibration.“The patented mounting system allows you to move the quiver in laterally by sliding the quiver in tight to the bow on a dovetail mounting bracket,” said Tight Spot President Joe Jacks. “This allows for a real tight fit by placing the quiver behind the arrow rest so you can get the quiver all the way up against the cable guard. This reduces the accuracy-robbing lateral torque that you get with most other quivers.” It will mount to any bow you have, and fit any size arrows easily. The extra-deep hood is made of a super strong polymer that will fully cover and protect all of your sharp broadheads, and the Tight Spot patented adjustable gripper system will hold your arrows tightly every time. Worried about busting your quiver? With the Tight Spot Iron Clad Guarantee, Tight Spot will replace or repair any broken quiver anytime. You probably won't need it, but it's good to know it's there just in case. Available in Matte Black, Black Crimson, Carbon Weave, Mossy Oak Break-up Country, Lost Camo, Lost Camo XD, and Realtree Xtra Brown, all in either Right or Left Hand.

By gliding up and down the reed assembly, the Modislide provides a wide range of tone and volume that other calls cannot match. It’s pretty easy to get the hang of it, but make sure you spend the time to watch the included hour long instructional DVD with Olympic Gold medalist Rod White. Full of amazing footage and information, this DVD will teach you how to call deer with the best of them.This guy really knows his stuff.

6. HECS Base Layer Pants & Shirt Green Large
Ever been in just the right spot, upwind and totally silent, and that darn deer turns his head and looks right at you somehow, before quickly running away?It just might be that that the deer was picking up on your own electrical energy emissions. “Every time a muscle moves, or a heart beats, it creates a small electrical current,” said HECS President Mike Slinkard.“Many hunters don’t realize that their bodies produce significant low frequency electrical fields that travel distance. Many animals, birds and fish use these emissions to identify a living being from an inanimate object.” In order to combat this, HECS developed a HECS Base Layer Pants & Shirt with a unique conductive carbon grid woven into the material that effectively blocks these emissions. “The result is closer and longer animal encounters, which for hunters equates to better shot opportunities and more hunting success,” said Mike.The HECS (Human Energy Conceal Suit) is made of a lightweight combo of Polyester, Carbon Yarn and Spandex that is machine washable. The HECS Base Layer set consists of Pants and a Shirt that has a stretchy feel to it and is slightly heavier than the original HECS suit.The HECS Base Layer won’t make you invisible, but pretty close.
