At WAC Outdoors we are not gear junkies, some of my gear was bought in the 70’s, and is still in use, because it still works. Arrows and broad heads made in the 80’s are still in my quiver, because they still work. Gear is bought to replace what wears out, not because it has the latest camo pattern. I had to retire a faithful hunting bow several years ago, not because it is wore out, but because the archer (me) can no longer shoot heavy poundage stick bows. for various reasons we are now trying and testing new hunting gear as the old needs replaced.
I am excited to bring you along through this blog as I test new gear. We started the 2015 hunting season with a new bow, some new arrow points, some new light’s, a new pack, and some new hunting cloths. A lot of miles, two deer, and six hogs later, I’m ready to share my thoughts on some of this gear.
My gear reviews will be “The real deal, in real time”. I am looking for gear that I can count on when “Failure is not an option”. I will only review gear that I have hunted with, or used in the field long enough, that I can make a valid assessment as to whether it meets our criteria as tough built gear for when failure is not an option.
Coming soon will be reviews of a couple of ILF Bow Risers, A new three blade Broad Head, A hunting Light, and a very well thought out Day pack.
Scott. - looking forward to learning about your new gear. ILF is amazing and I have been playing with that style of bow also. Keep up the good work and now that I have found your blog I will be keeping up with your endeavors. By the way, I met you at the last rendezvous the Carolina Traditional Arhers had - I bought one of the cool little lightweight stoves you were selling at that time. I'm pretty sure you won't remember that but thought I would include it as an introduction of sorts...
Great to hear from you Wally! We are ramping up a more substantial online presence so look forward to more content in the future. We just posted a video on You Tube that is the first of a three part series we shot with Bill dunn from Zipper Bows and Grizzly Broadheads. Take a look and let us know what you think. Take care, Scott.
