SHE Outdoors Waterfowl Bibs Written – Marie Ambrose
My favorite clothing purchase hands down has been my SHE Outdoors Waterfowl Bibs. They are lightweight, weatherproof, and fit comfortably. I was worried ordering bibs off line because I am tall and I often have trouble finding a good fit for my length. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them on after receiving them in the mail. I am 5 foot 9 inches and the medium is just what I needed. They are long enough on my legs and torso and the straps are adjustable which make for the perfect fit. I can also fit layers underneath these bibs on the extreme cold days. These bibs have kept me warm and dry in all types of conditions. From sitting out for hours in the rain duck hunting to below freezing temperatures calling in geese, they haven’t let me down. Not only do they get me through rough hunting weather, but I even use them for so many other things. I have worn them snowboarding, sledding, and ice fishing as well. I use them for anything and everything!

Bushnell Custom 600 Range Finder Written – Katie Olszewski
I recently was in the market for a basic range finder i could use for deer hunting in Wisconsin. I wasn’t looking for anything fancy, and certainly didn’t want to break the bank. I came across a sale at Cabelas and decided the Bushnell Custom 600 fit the criteria I was wanting, basic and nothing fancy, and that’s just what I got. This range finder has worked great for archery hunting with accurate and easy readings from 5-60 yards. I also rifle hunt in Wisconsin and this range finder just doesn’t cut it in the hardwoods I hunt. I found this range finder to be very sensitive and usually picks up branches that are in line of the lasers view. Overall, I think this is an ok range finder to start out with, especially for archery hunting. Definitely don’t recommend for accuracy over 100 yards.
Echo Sisterhood Duck Call Written – Lana Van Winkle
If you are just beginning or you are experienced at using a duck call, this call is a must to have on your lanyard. Just because this duck call is on the low end of the price range does not mean it is on the low end of quality. Echo is well known for their quaility duck calls. It is made of a durable polycarbonte. A timber call is a versatile call. You can reach some of the high ducks or you can get really soft when trying to finish the ducks to the water. It is a double read call, which makes it easy to blow and acheive realistic duck sounds with this call. You won’t regret adding the Sisterhood Echo Duck call to your hunting arsenal.
