BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - Retailers are stocking their shelves with new inventory in preparation for the fall hunting season, and the June Hunting Gear issue of Shooting Sports Retailer provides insight into some of the new products hunters will consider.
Feature stories include "If Only Bows Had Wings" by Senior Field Editor Rick Sapp, which puts its focus on the new breed of crossbows more resembling stealth aircraft than the traditional bows of yesteryear. Hunters trekking into the trophy backcountry will welcome the trend in personal freight hauling, including taking trophy racks back to camp. "Can I Borrow Your Backpack?" by camp gear expert Bob Whitaker outlines the trend in new packs that allow hunters to never again be without all the comforts of a day afield.
SSR reporter Rochelle Kaplan writes that "Game On The Lighter Side" favors some of the old reliable bolt-action rifles over the newer modern sporting tactical rifles. Sub-titled "...Or How To Start A Controversy..." the article is a series of interviews with veteran hunters on why they choose to hunt with walnut- or synthetic-stocked, blue steel- or stainless-barrel rifles.
"Power Up!" by gear guru Jeff Fletcher advises today's digital hunter how to avoid dead batteries in GPS tracking devices, iPhones, iPads and other digital devices that help determine where the game is and how to get it and him/herself safely back to camp.
"Riding The Rails" in the popular magazine-within-a-magazine, The Tactical Retailer, reveals the many shooting accessories that are now available to attach to the top, the sides and the bottom of Picatinny-styled rails on tactical rifles.
Columns by SSR's shooting and hunting analysts Steve Comus, Bob Robb, Bob Whitaker and Rick Sapp provide an introspective on issues important to all shooters. Additionally, SSR Editor Bob Rogers reports on the efforts of gun-control advocates to get rid of the Stand Your Ground laws in 25 states in his editorial, the "Will To Kill Bill."
The third article in a series on "The Difference Makers," recognizing leaders in the firearms industry, focuses in this issue on ammunition king-pin Steve Hornady. The first two "Difference Makers" put the spotlight on Lew Danielson, founder of Crimson Trace (January issue), and Ron Coburn, who took Savage Arms (March/April issue) from the throes of bankruptcy to the heights of success.
Other popular features in the information-packed June issue include "Your Two Cents," where retailers and other in the industry can comment on issues of importance to their business; "NewsScope," the hard-news section that keeps retailers abreast of issues that may affect their profitability; and the new products "Preview" and "TacGear" sections.
All this and much, much more is in the June issue. Check it out! Visit www.shootingsportsretailer.com
