Summit Viper SD Climber Stand

Summit Viper SD Climber Stand

The Viper SD is the most popular stand in the Summit lineup. Its lightweight and strong aluminum build make it the climber of choice for hardcore hunters. The padded backpack straps coupled with the upper and lower frames ability to pack tight against each other allow for maximum portability no matter how far the distance. Once you get there, stay for a while in the suspended foam-padded seat with cushioned backrest and padded armrests. The closed front allows for simple sit-and-stand climbing and doubles as a gun and crossbow rest. The large 20”x36” aluminum platform offers plenty of foot space to stand up for a bow shot, too. The Viper SD features Summit’s Dead Metal technology that allows you to move in the stand without creating game-spooking unnatural metal sounds. Padded seat, rail and armrest are decorated in Realtree camo for maximum concealment. ($329.99; summitstands.com)

HGG-SEVR-Broadhead.jpg

SEVR’s latest killer, the Titanium 1.5, was designed for maximum penetration on heavy-boned big game.

Realtree

HGG-Realtree-Pant.jpg

A classic pair of hunting pants makes a great gift any hunter, and Realtree knows it.

Primos

HGG-Primos-Rack-N-Roll.jpg

A fits-easily-into-the-pack one-handed rattling system, the Rack-N-Roll mimics the sound of two bucks engaged in a sparring match.

Conquest Scents

HGG-Conquest-Scents.jpg

Using heat, the ScentFire Electronic Scent Vaporizer Kit turns scented liquid into vapor and then sends that vapor out on the breeze. Much like the aroma of cooking foods, scent that has been turned to vapor is strong and able to reach the nostrils of distant deer. The vaporizer has a trio of dispersal modes that include: three-minute, one-minute and standby. Pre-filled cartridges of EverCalm, VS-1 or Rutting Buck last approximately 50 hours when the unit is set in the three-minute mode. The kit contains one ScentFire Vaporizer, one EverCalm Scent Cartridge and one remote control. (conquestscents.com)

ElimiShield

HGG-ElimiShield-Hunt.jpg

An FDA-compliant, direct-to-skin scent control, HUNT Core Body Foam utilizes a proprietary nanotechnology that kills more than 99.99 percent of game-spooking human stink. Before heading afield, rub on a lather and get after it. The long-lasting formula was designed around the idea of all-day protection. The formula is alcohol-free, so skin dryness and damage are never a worry. Use the foam in combination with ElimiShield’s three-step odor elimination system for optimum results.

Alps OutdoorZ

HGG-Alps-OutdoorZ.jpg

A top-end waterproof duffle, the Crusader X was constructed with 168OD TPU material, welded seams and a roll-top closure.

Dual top compression straps suck gear down tight, and the duffle is available in Standard (2,800 cubic-inches) and Large (5,000 cubic-inches) sizes.

Easton

HGG-Easton-Bowtruk.jpg

With a pair of full-sized main bow compartments capable of harboring compounds up to 47 inches in length, the BowTruk is just the thing for the traveling archer. Eight interior and exterior accessory pockets make organization of sights, stabilizers, arrows and other gear easy. A double seatbelt system holds bows tight, and the Cordura 1680D Ballistic Nylon outer shell, originally developed for military body armor, make this case tougher than nails. Inside padding is dense and the case comes with triple field-replaceable roller bearing wheels. (eastonarchery.com)
