The Hunter’s Edge TransFan is designed to replicate a gobbler in full strut. It creates the illusion of a challenge to boss toms and is perfect for bringing in silent, call-shy, open-field or hung-up toms. The TransFan is light and compact, so it easily fits inside any turkey vest. It is made out of cloth and has a gobbler’s head printed on both sides. The TransFan also includes 4- and 12-inch stakes for setting up in hard or soft dirt. When using the TransFan, use caution and make sure no other hunters are within gun or bow range.

Alaskan Guide flashlights from Cabela’s are two lighting sources in one. With the push of a button, they switch between a long-lasting LED and a 50-lumen xenon lamp.
