Day 2 of the ATA show is a busy time. Here are five new products for the archery hunter. We've got you covered showing you new optics, trail cameras, and releases. We’ll cover the best new products for any bowhunter in 2023.
Shorter axle-to-axle bows are great when hunting in the tight confines of a treestand or ground blind, but many bows sacrifice stability and accuracy to achieve a compact form factor. Not so with Bowtech’s new CP30, a 30-inch axle-to-axle rig designed to feel like a longer bow at full draw and powered by Bowtech’s DeadLock Cam System that produces an IBO speed rating of 331 fps and makes tuning for perfect nock travel easy using nothing more than a set of Allen wrenches. Add in an extremely smooth draw cycle and the CP30 is a compelling option for serious bowhunters. Other highlights of the CP30 include a 6.75-inch brace height, 4.5-pound mass weight, 25-30.5-inch draw-length range and peak draw weights of 50, 60 or 70 pounds. Available in your choice of four solid colors and five camouflage finish options.

HHA Tetra Max RYZ
This year HHA is adding two new sights to its popular Tetra Series — the Tetra RYZ and Tetra Max RYZ. Both models can be chosen with one of four mounting bases — Short Dovetail, Long Dovetail, Hoyt Picatinny and Fixed Hunter, with the dovetail versions compatible with the Mathews Bridge-Lock mounting system. RYZ sights feature two aiming points contained in a single pin structure protected by the company’s A.R.M.O.R. pin-protection technology. Pins are available in .010- or .019-inch diameter and are housed in a 1.625-inch diameter scope that is also home to a bubble level and rheostat sight light. HHA has outfitted the new sights with long-range, water-resistant yardage tapes that allow archers to take advantage of the Range-Dial-Shoot (R.D.S.) Technology and reach out past 100 yards with to-the-yard accuracy. The new Infinite Adjust System and large yardage adjustment wheel with 2.1 inches of travel work together to extend the archer’s possible range. Each RYZ sight includes an Infinite Adjust Plate to allow for independent elevation and second-axis adjustments, as well as additional windage on all inline sight mounting options. RYZ sights are available in right- and left-handed versions and carry HHA’s lifetime warranty.

Scott Verge Release
The culmination of two years of research, Scott’s new Verge release combines the benefits of an index-finger release and a hinge release. The extra-long trigger allows you to execute a shot using just your index finger or by wrapping a pair of fingers around the release and engaging the back muscles to achieve more of a back-tension-like surprise release. Plus, the single sear has adjustable travel settings so you can fine-tune the pull, and you can set the release to make a pre-shot click.
