Sitka Gear – Apex Launch

This past January, we, and a lot of other people, were all buzzing about the new Apex Series by Sitka Gear. The Apex Series is the newest addition to Sitka’s Big Game lineup, featuring Optifade Subalpine camo. While sure to be a hit for early season big game hunters, the Apex Series will also be a goto for many turkey hunters throughout the Midwest and East Coast as well. Since the initial word got out, a lot of people have been asking when Sitka would begin sales. Well, the Apex Series is officially ready to launch starting today, April 23.

2018 ATA Show – Compound Bow Roundup

Aside from Mathews making a much-anticipated return to the ATA Show a few years back, it seems there has not been much buzz around new bows the past few years. Of course, a lot of this likely has to do with the fact that most of the big manufacturers make their new year model announcements well before the ATA show. But regardless, we still enjoy going around the show looking at, and shooting as many of the new bows as possible. Last year we made our first attempt at putting together a “Compound Bow Roundup”, and due to the feedback we received, we decided to do the same this year. Just like years past, time constraints kept us from visiting every booth, so bear in mind this is far from an all-inclusive list.
