Its formula also prevents the collection of dust and debris along the crossbow rail, and leaves behind only the look of “Black Ice” as evidence. Black Ice is 100% odorless when dry and it’s made in America. Simply run the applicator along each side of the crossbow rail, wiping any excess off with a cloth.

Nose Jammer – Four Pack Kit
Nose Jammer contains Vanillin and other natural aromatic compounds that have the ability to effectively jam an animal’s sense of smell. The compounds used in Nose Jammer are not alarming to game animals because they are found in lignin, a major support structure for all trees, grasses, and shrubs. The key is taking these prolific compounds game animals are conditioned to and delivering them at concentrated levels to overload the olfactory gland found in an animal’s nose. In the nose, once a molecule has triggered a response, it must be disposed of and this takes time. If a molecule comes along too quickly, there is no place for it on the olfactory hairs, so it cannot be perceived. Olfactory Fatigue is the temporary, normal inability to distinguish a particular odor after a prolonged exposure to that airborne compound. Nose Jammer offers a four pack which includes the 6 ounce aersol spray, Gear-n-Rear wipe, Deodarant, and Shampoo and Body Wash. Learn more at nosejammer.com.

Slayer Archery Blind – Archery Blind
Slayer hard-sided blinds are a modular design with five LP Smartside side panels, and its floor and roof sections are assembled with a standard 9/16-inch wrench. This makes them easy to transport anywhere on a hunting property with a 4×4 truck, ATV or boat. If a wall panel is damaged, then individual panels are available for order. The blind holds grey-tint, marine-grade glass windows that won’t warp or scratch during cleaning. The all-aluminum frame will not rust or rot in wet conditions, and the one-piece thermal-formed plastic roof has no seams, so it will not leak under heavy rain or snow. The five-sided, 6-foot, 6-inch pentagon floor plan allows hunters to cover multiple shooting lanes, and the fully carpeted walls and floor are quiet and provide cold-weather warmth. The blind has a lockable 30-by-69-inch aluminum door and 500-pound weight. It can be set on the ground or atop a 5- or 7-foot Slayer Tower. Users can also place it on a 7- or 10-foot Universal Tower via included aluminum base plates. Learn more at slayeroutdoorproducts.com.
Spencer Gear – Stand Guard
The Stand Guard is placed in your favorite treestand so deer become accustomed to seeing a human sillouette and disregard your presence when you climb on board. Not only will it desensitize game to your presence, but it will also protect your seat from the elements. Reflective eyes also make it easier to locate the stand in low light conditions. It comes in Green and Blaze Orange- the latter deigned to deter trespassers. Simple three-strap installation is all it takes to deploy, and it never needs to be removed. Once it is in your tree, simply undo the bottom two straps to collapse and secure it against the tree for easy storage during a hunt. The Stand Guard is made of 600D fabric with a True Timber finish. It weighs 2.4 pounds and measures 18 inches at the shoulder and 42 inches at the torso. The removable leg attachment is 28 inches. Learn more at standguarddecoy.com.
Spot-Hogg – MRT Pin Guard
Spot-Hogg’s newly redesigned multi-pin guard features the Multi-Ring Technology (MRT). The MRT housing is available now in 3-, 5-, and 7-pin configuration. 3- and 5-pin versions come with two multi-ring options, a small and large, as well as one single ring. The 7-pin version will come with one triple ring and one single ring. This increased versatility ensures proper peep to sight alignment with most setups. The multi-ring options provide the archer with a much higher level of accuracy in varying lighting situations by always giving the archer a bright visible ring to align their peep to. Further upgrades include a larger and more visible level, better protected, fiber optics and an improved lighting cavity that allows the sight light to be more evenly distributed and protects unwanted light from escaping.

Wildgame Innovations – Zero Trace
Hunters now have a smart alternative to existing scent-control methods that rely on harsh oxidation. No bigger than a coconut, ZeroTrace mounts easily in the stand or the blind to deliver continuous concealment from game.

ZeroTrace is the only in-field system using PureION technology, which harnesses nature’s greatest hunter, the ion-molecule. Ions carry either positive or negative charges and quickly seek out and bond with nearby atoms to stabilize. Once this bond occurs, particulate matter in the air is neutralized reducing the chance of detection. It’s powered by a rechargeable battery that runs for up to 6 hours. The durable TRUBark texture conceals the ZeroTrace, and the magnetic mount ensures the perfect fit for any setup in the field. Learn more at wildgameinnovations.com.
