Scent Crusher's new Ozone Base Camp Generator was created with versatility in mind, as this portable, lightweight unit is perfect for deodorizing hunting gear, trucks and even campers. Producing 750 milligrams of odor-destroying ozone per hour, the Base Camp Generator works fast and will have your vehicles and gear odor free in time for your next hunt, as ozone is scientifically proven to eliminate odors from sweat, soaps, food, perfume, smoke and more. The Ozone Base Camp Generator includes a convenient carry handle and rear mounting bracket and measures approximately 9x7x3.35 inches. Operation is simple, with two-button functionality to select high/low ozone output settings and run time (30 minutes, 60 minutes, 2 hours or 4 hours) — all detailed on an illuminated LCD display. The whisper-quiet unit runs up to 12 hours on a single charge of the included rechargeable battery. Also comes with an AC wall plug, USB-C charging cable and vehicle power adapter with USB port for charging at home or on the go. $374.99 |

Hunters demand every possible edge, and Duel Outdoors’ New SDS (Scent Disruption System) field spray features a proprietary blend of ingredients that confuse a game animal's ability to smell. Spray SDS around your setup to keep your presence a secret and the element of surprise in your favor. Harnessing both natural and synthetic compounds, SDS overpowers, overwhelms and disrupts an animal's uncanny sense of smell, keeping you, the hunter, undetected when the wind swirls. SDS is effective to use for hunting, scouting and checking trail cameras. And it's useful for all styles of hunting, whether you hunt from an elevated stand, ground blind or on foot, either stalking or still-hunting. You can also apply it to decoys, trail cameras and your boot soles for the ultimate concealment. $14.99 (10-ounce can) |

For many years, the Primos team has produced some of the best elk-hunting footage available, and the company's extensive elk-call collection is a huge part of that success. Now, nothing is worse than when you go to challenge a bull only to find your bugle tube's diaphragm call is missing. That's why Primos outfitted the aptly named Slide Bugle with a sliding tray to hold and protect the diaphragm when not in use. The Slide Bugle provides convenient lip alignment and produces realistic bugles, grunts, growls and chuckles, thanks to the integrated resonating chamber. Easily interchange among bull, cow and calf diaphragms to "Speak the Language." $45.95 |

Caribou are almost always moving on the wide-open terrain they inhabit. This makes for difficult archery hunting. However, caribou are naturally inquisitive. What if there was a caribou decoy that mounts to your bow? Done! Ultimate Predator has long been producing shoot-through decoys that have helped bowhunters draw in game and fill their tags against all odds. The Stalker Caribou looks like a young cow caribou and is the latest addition to the Stalker line. Created as a result of popular demand, the Stalker Caribou features a photo-realistic image printed on durable, UV-resistant, micro-suede fabric. The decoy weighs about half a pound, folds flat to slip easily into your pack and has blaze orange safety straps that can easily be moved out of the way and put back in place when needed. $119.95 |

Team Bone Collector — Michael Waddell, Travis "T-Bone" Turner and Nick Mundt — have been using Big&J attractants for several years because the results are undeniable. They’ve found Big&J products put more deer in front of their game cameras and stands, and they’ve seen consistent growth in bucks. For 2023, the team has taken the partnership a step further with the development of BONE COLLECTOR BLEND. Available in both dry (shown above) and liquid forms, BONE COLLECTOR BLEND features an exclusive mix of irresistible ingredients that will help fellow deer hunters see and harvest more deer season after season. $19.99 (20-pound bag) and $10.99 (Liquid) |

Ozonics generators have saved many hunts by flooding the downwind airstream with ozone molecules that attach to odor molecules and effectively erase your human scent and other odors. While all past Ozonics units have proven effective, the new HR500 features some notable upgrades. Noise in the Boost and Hyperboost modes is substantially reduced, and now you also can leverage the benefits of an app-enabled interface (via Bluetooth) and remote-control compatibility. Easily reference the HR500's remaining battery life and local weather conditions on the Ozonics app, which also gives you full operational control of the unit from your phone — no more standing up, turning around and reaching in the air to change modes or power the unit on or off. $599.99 |

Code Blue is introducing two new dripper pouches in the Code Red line. Choose between Buck Urine Dripper and the Doe Estrous Dripper, depending on the timing of your hunt. Ideal when used in conjunction with a scrape or mock scrape, simply hang the 3-ounce pouch and adjust the rate at which the scent dispenses based on preference. Use the Buck Urine Dripper all season long to spark curiosity or trigger dominance, and count on the Doe Estrous Dripper from mid-season through the post-rut to attract the bucks. This mess-free dispenser keeps scent in the area even when you aren't hunting, which is a benefit when trying to maximize activity in front of a trail camera. $9.99 each |

Moultrie's Ranch Series 300 Auger Feeder holds up to 300 pounds of wildlife or livestock feed — it's compatible with any feed type.

The internal hopper, which ensures that all feed gets dispensed, guides feed straight into a feeding trough or directly onto the ground.

The two-dimensional Muley Buck from Montana Decoy is designed to exploit a mule deer buck's curiosity and trigger his dominance. Posing as a subordinate buck, the decoy is so real — a real mule deer buck photo HD printed onto durable fabric — that it will fire-up even the most mature bucks.

Why carry cumbersome antlers when you can carry the Rack Jack from Hunters Specialties?

Blast scent into the downwind airstream, onto leaves and foliage, into scrapes, onto game trails or around a decoy with Wildlife Research Center's new pressurized Premium Spray Cans. Deer hunters can choose between Buck Nip and Golden Scrape, while elk hunters can get the Golden Estrous Elk. The bag-on-valve system separates the scent from the propellent — that means your scents aren't diluted with an aerosol. The Golden Scrape is the cream of the crop, boasting a killer mixture of scents — Golden Estrous, buck scent, fresh-scraped earth and Territorial Musk — sure to keep bucks coming back to scrapes and mock scrapes. The Golden Scrape and Golden Estrous Elk feature Scent Reflex Technology for enhanced results. $15.99-$19.99 |
