New Primos Double Bull Blind
The parent company of Primos Hunting Calls recently acquired Double Bull Blinds, and the result is blinds marketed under the name Primos Double Bull. The first new model resulting from this merger is the Dark Horse , a 6-foot diameter model. The Dark Horse features Double Bull's original Silent Slide window system in front, but the back of the blind is solid except for four vertical shooting ports and two horizontal viewing ports. Inside, the back half of the blind is solid black for total concealment. The blind includes many of the other niceties that have made Double Bull blinds so popular over the years, including a sturdy rotating /locking hub and framework that sets up faster than you can read this sentence.

Take On Turkey with a Military-Grade Sight
Trijicon makes the kind of sights our military relies on, so it stands to reason its products would serve you well in the turkey woods. The company's new RX30 Reflex sight uses flourescent fiber optics and a tritium lamp to provide a clear aiming point no matter how dim the light. It does all of this with no battery, which is both remarkable and practical. The sight's new 42mm aperature lens provides a wide field of view. Weight is about 8 ounces, making it a little bigger than some of the miniature red dot sights, but lighter than most full-sized scopes. Contact Trijicon
