I normally go out and start buying hunting gear just before hunting season rolls around.  That happens to be when I start thinking about it and it’s also when the products are in stores and are also on prominent display.  That’s a good time to buy hunting gear since it’s all right in front of you and you have lots to choose from.  But if you want to save some money, buying right before season might not be the best time to buy.

Buying products in the off-season is a great way to save money.   Products are seriously discounted so that they will move out to make room for products that are in-season.

Example: I just bought a 15′  2-man ladder treestand that normally sells for at least $179 for only $49!  Actually… it was such a great deal, I bought two of them.  The first response from several people was that I would then have to buy harnesses for it and they could cost $99 each.  Nope!  It came with 2 harnesses!  I’ve already put one together and it seems to be a pretty descent stand.  After next hunting season, I’ll have to do an update on how I liked hunting in it and how it’s holding up.

Anyway… This is a great example of the deals you can get when you simply buy off-season.  The dangerous part is…. now I’m excited to see what other great deals I can find now for next hunting season.  Don’t tell my husband!

Happy Hunting!

Hunting and fishing are fun, but they can also be expensive.  I’ve found that buying cheaper gear is not such a good idea.  I want to actually see through my binoculars.  I want a nice clear image, not a cloudy, slightly blurry one that can come with a cheap pair.  I think all hunting & fishing gear are like this.  I want the best… at the best price.

Cabela’s Bargain Cave is one of the places I find great deals.  The inventory is constantly changing so I can always find new things.  From ammo, game calls, tree stands and trail cams to clothing and hunting accessories.

The Bargain Cave also has fishing and camping gear, a boating section and so much more!  Check it out and check it often so that you can buy the best and save the most.

I don’t want to get too into posting other people’s articles.  But every now and then I run across an article that is just too good to pass up.

10 Ways To Stronger Rifle Field Shooting Positions

By Shawn Carlock

After having spent years in the hunting fields, rifle competitions, and training arenas, I have noted that a high number of missed “field” shots in these conditions were the result of unstable or flat out poor shooting positions. Now, in the areas of hunting, rifle competition, and training, your field shooting position will often be far from ideal. However, there are things you can do to raise your first round hit percentage by improving your shooting position.

1. Get your rifle as close to the ground as possible. The higher your body and your rifle are up in the air, the less stable you typically are. Not all field positions allow you to be right on the dirt, but be there whenever you can. Even if you do not use a bipod on your rifle, simply being prone and unsupported is a better position than sitting, kneeling, or leaning against a tree. The closer you and your rifle are to the dirt, the more stable you will be. Now, getting low may not always be possible, so be prepared for other unique field shooting positions, but try to stay low whenever possible.

Duck DecoysWhen I buy hunting gear, it’s always nice to know what other hunters are using, what they like, and what they don’t like.  I try to talk to other people I trust and get their opinions.  Sometimes it pays off and sometimes I buy things that I just don’t end up liking.  But I’m sure that my hunting gear purchases lean towards the “good purchase” side because I do my research.

That’s where SportsmansReview.com comes in.   At Sportsman’s Review, you can find reviews on all kinds of hunting and fishing gear, like rainwear, game calls, trail cams, optics, decoys, stands, knives, tools, boats etc.  The list goes on and on.

You can look at a quick overall chart which compares brands or read full reviews if you want more detail.

Great site!
