GSM OutdoorsGrand Prairie, TX – – Huron Capital Partners LLC (“Huron Capital”) has announced its hunting accessories platform, Good Sportsman Marketing (“GSM”), has acquired Isanti, MN-based HME Products, LLC (“HME”). Huron Capital invested in Texas based GSM in June 2016, and this is the first add-on acquisition since that time.

HME designs and distributes a variety of tools that assist hunters in the field, including accessory hooks, deer gambrels and drags, tree-stand accessories, gloves and other related products. The company distributes its products through a mix of sporting goods, farm & fleet, e-commerce and specialty retailers across the U.S.

“The acquisition of HME will add a variety of highly complementary items to our product lineup,” said Eddie Castro, CEO of GSM. “HME has an excellent reputation for high quality hunting accessories and we look forward to building on that reputation as we invest in new product development to drive growth in the category for our customers, and enhance the hunting experience for consumers.”

Sean Roberts, Principal at Huron Capital, added, “HME is a great fit for GSM. We are pleased to be completing this add-on acquisition so soon after our initial investment in GSM, and we look forward to working with the GSM team to pursue additional acquisitions and other growth initiatives as we seek to build out the GSM platform.
