Safety System Vest
Safety, Safety Safety! Ladies if you or anyone in your family is going to climb into a tree stand this year, you simply must invest in Hunter Safety System Vests.
We all know that traditional safety harnesses are a pain in the neck. This is probably why there are so many unavoidable accidents each year of people falling out of tree stands, and this is exactly why the team down at Hunter Safety System designed the Hunter Safety System Vest. Now, there is no excuse for being at the truck, in the dark, trying to untangle the old style harness, a big pile of straps…till the sun is coming up, and you get so frustrated you depart and “risk” it up in your tree stand without any harness at all. The Hunter Safety Vest system is as easy to put on as…well, a vest.
Today I put up my tree stand. I must say, this is a task I normally let my wonderful husband undertake on my behalf, but he was unavailable today during a break in the weather that meant it could be set up dry; so I jumped in our truck and called some friends to help me launch that monstrosity up in the tree. The scariest part of putting a tree stand up is the climb up, to tie on the chair portion – before the stand is actually secured all the way to the tree. Today, it wasn’t scary. I simply threw on my hunter safety vest, and away I went; I tethered myself to the tree and climbed up. When I got to the top, I tied onto my tree, and was able to secure the tree stand without fear of falling! Let me describe a few details of the vest, the ease of making adjustments is awesome. This was the first time I used a Hunter Safety System Vest, so I pulled it on, and simply lifted a layer of fabric and pushed a sort of toggle button, and pulled it comfortably snug. The front buckle is huge, and easy to click on and off, but once it clicks on; it is solid and not going anywhere. Then I just reached down for the leg strap and snapped it into a “car like” seatbelt buckle. That was so easy, let’s face it we can all buckle our seatbelts in the dark! I saw what type of adjustment I need to make, and simply unbuckled, made a quick easy adjustment, and click I was ready to go.
The hunter safety system should be a gift to every hunter who climbs in a stand. Think of it as a health and life insurance policy because if used properly and always, it will save you thousands in medical bills, or more than likely save your life.

I have to say that the Spot’N’Stalk ™ Quiver Pack by Game Plan Gear ™ is a must have for any Hunter looking to carry their supplies in a functional pack. This lightweight quiver pack was certainly manufactured with the Hunter’s needs in mind.
The compartments are easily accessible for less hassle. I wasted no time in finding my favorite scents, rangefinder and calls.
I am one of the many Hunters who do not practice with a quiver attached to my bow, so this pack puts the quiver in an easy to reach place. This feature enables the Hunter, to hunt to and from their ideal hunting spots or to hunt by spot and stalking. The soft shoulder straps, allow the hunter to carry their supplies effortlessly.
The bed-roll pack was perfect for my late season hunts. Along with many other Hunters, I don’t wear my heavy jacket out to my hunting spot, because of the added heat of hiking my way there. Once I’ve cooled down then I easily accessed the bedroll portion to get my coat…perfect for late season-winter hunts!
This was a very quiet alternative to the hunting backpack I previously used. Beside this pack being quiet, in my opinion the time saved in finding my supplies was very surprising…I usually hunt from a blind, stopping to add attractants near the blind. This Quiver Pack made it so very effortless and fast, that I can’t see myself hunting with out it!
Game Plan Gear ™ thought of everything with this quiver pack, from hydration to comfort! For more information on the Spot’N’Stalk ™ Quiver Pack please go to www.gameplangear.com

The BowBat from Game Plan Gear is one of my favorite pieces of gear! What is a BowBat; it is basically a big multi-purpose carrier that your bow and everything you need for a day hunt fits in! The system is designed for tree stands, but I used it for Turkey Hunting from the ground this past spring and it worked wonderfully! We will be using BowBats on our deer hunting trips this month, and will let you know how it works from tree stands.
The feature I love most about the BowBat is the ease of carrying everything. I normally leave my bow case in the truck, and walk along carrying my bow down by my side or up on my shoulder, switching back and forth because inevitably I get tired either way…If I have to run an obstacle course through thick brush, I end up looking like I’m trying to play twister to get through without getting my bow stuck on twigs and brush. Has anyone else been there? Well, if you have ever carried a purse, then you will know how it feels to carry the BowBat through the woods. It is awesome; it feels less heavy than a fully loaded 1980’s bag! It has adjustable straps, so it can hang at the most comfortable height for you. It wraps around your bow, with your stabilizer on (I leave my quiver on my bow, but there is a place to hook it on the BowBat too). It has cam covers that adjust to fit perfectly over your cams and protect them.
For turkey season, I had about a mile walk into the woods. Not far, but loaded down with everything I needed, and a backpack full of decoys. Without the BowBat, I would have been quite uncomfortable. The system is designed with multiple pockets, and eyelets to hang everything you need off it. The only things that didn’t fit in my BowBat were my decoys. I had my bow with my broad head quiver, release, binoculars, range finder, box call, gloves and mask, water, snacks, cell phone, mini first aid kit, allen wrenches, hunting license and I hung my half blind off of it. I hunted by a tree, with a half blind set up just on the edge of a meadow with my decoys placed out from 15yrd to 30yrds. The BowBat is padded to hook up on your tree, so you can lean against it and access all the pockets easily from your tree stand…well, I thought, why not fold it in half and sit on part of it and lean against the other part! Pure comfort. It also gave me easy access to my gear without a lot of movement or fumbling around! If you’re sitting in the woods for hours, waiting for the big gobbler to call back at you and run to your decoys, there is no reason you shouldn’t be as comfortable as possible. I recommend the BowBat to every hunter out there. The advantage it give us gals, is that we are used to carrying a purse, and if you have kids….you are used to carrying a purse with a child leaning on it….and if you have a husband or a boyfriend you are used to carrying a purse filled with all of their stuff…so the BowBat is perfect for us! It is available online at www.shootlikeagirl.com.
The fletching on them are great. First thing was to cut to size then glue in the inserts. Followed the directions and everything went smoothly. Once I had the inserts all in and let them dry overnight I screwed in the tips and weighed them all. All the arrows with inserts and tips in weighed within two grains of each other. To me that is awesome!! A lot of arrows have to be worked on to get within what I consider acceptable weight of each other.
Next was the test flight. Arrows shoot wonderfully, straight and land behind the pin. Broadheads fly straight and land where they are supposed to.
All in all these are wonderful arrows and I will recommend them to my friends that may be looking for new arrows to try!!
