In today’s installment, let’s take a look at three more head-turning new products
from this year’s SHOT Show:
1. Wild For Game game-processing kit from Ruko. This kit not only has it
all, it is designed with deer hunters in mind. It includes everything you’ll need
to field-dress your deer, skin it and butcher it – and keep an edge on all those knives.
The eight-piece set is also packaged in a nifty hardshell carrying case. www.rukoproducts.com .
2. Big Mike blind from Barronett . Pop-up blinds have made some huge advancements
in recent years. This new blind from one of the industry’s top brands includes replaceable
three-panel shoot-through mesh camo windows for fixed-blade broadhead use. The Big
Mike is built for bowhunters. It has a smaller “footprint” (base), yet has a taller
design – so it provides plenty of room for stand-up shooting. www.barronettblinds.com.
3. Rossi deer rifles for youth hunters. Rossi has long been known to be a
maker of some mighty fine lever-actions, but they now offer some super-sweet cutstom-fitted
guns for smaller hunters. This .243 in camo is just the ticket for getting a younger
hunter introduced to a centerfire without having to worry about weight and, most of
all, recoil. www.rossiusa.com .
