Gear Review: Two Backpacks for Bowhunters

I vividly remember the first time I prepared for a mule deer hunt with my dad. In fact, I remember it better than the actual hunt. It was August 1996, and I had just finished my Hunters Education course. The excitement of getting to go hunting was likely the only thing that made [...]

Adjustable Magnetic Arrow Rest by Western Archery

I’ve always been a shoot off the shelf, instinctive shooter. Therefore, I’ve never had much use for elevated rests. But I got my hands on a Bear 59 Kodiak this year, which comes with the well-known Bear “Feather Rest” installed. If you’ve ever shot with one, you’ll know that they offer great fletching [...]

Review: Wood-Burr Workshop Tab

Every once in a while, you see a product and go “AH-HA! Why hadn’t I thought of that before?!” As traditional archers and bowhunters we all take pride in our simple, yet elegant equipment. We shell out hard-earned money for beautiful, handcrafted bows, armguards, quivers and other paraphernalia—I definitely fall into this category. [...]

Laced Up and Socked In

So, you got that new pair of boots and they seem great, but then what? This question may seem arbitrary, or even asinine, but it definitely holds merit. There are a couple of details when it comes to the realm of boots, that I feel might be overlooked, or just isn’t a hot [...]

Review: AGrip, by Brooks Tactical Systems

Every once in a while, you discover a product that’s sold under a certain category, but you find a use for it in a completely different manner than how the product is marketed it to be used. And in addition, there's those oddball occasions where you come to find out that actually, the [...]

Showcase: Mike Mitten “Herd Bull” Tribute Package

I recall years ago, encountering a certain “Herd Bull” on a couple of traditional archery forums, and feeling inspired by the photos and stories that this person shared. A short time later, I discovered through the pages of TBM, that this “person” was actually Mike Mitten and his exploits in the field were [...]

Review: Alaska Guide Creations K.I.S.S Bino Pack

If you spend enough time in the woods, you eventually come to the conclusion that hunting with binoculars is much better than hunting without them. But how do you carry them along? Inside your backpack, on a strap around your neck, dangling from a chest harness exposed to the elements…tucked into a vest [...]

Review: Trad Vanes – Trad What?

For years traditional archers have been looking for a fix to solve the wet, soggy fletching and poor flight that can come from an arrow with flat feathers. From powders to sprays to putting covers on them, to even using condoms, there are many ways to try and keep feathers dry. Now before [...]

Review: Trad Sling by Western Binds

During the brief interim that I hunted with a compound, my good friend Tim Endsley was selling his version of the bow sling, under his Bad Medicine Archery label. I loved this little sling so much that I asked him to design and produce a counterpart for trad bows. With him being too [...]

Review: De Havilland Jacket by Stone Glacier

Stone Glacier started out as a company who made ultralight backpacks, but has grown exponentially, and now offers high quality hunting apparel as well. I was fortunate enough to score both the De Havilland jacket and pant, shortly after visiting the Stone Glacier booth while attending the Western Hunting Expo, back in March. [...]
