The Carbonator Blind from Ameristep features a carbon-enhanced, scent-blocking laminated interior. It also features a heavy-duty hub-style design for durable, fast and easy setup.

Leupold’s first-ever open-bridge line of binoculars, the Green Ring Mojave, is available in 8x42mm and 10x42mm models. The Mojave’s open-bridge design drastically reduces the binoculars’ weight to a mere 23 ounces. The design also improves the ergonomics of the binoculars, making them comfortable and easy to hold during extended use. Mojave binoculars also feature multi-coated optics for a bright sight picture with the contrast and color fidelity needed to make positive identifications. Additionally, the silver-enhanced, cold-mirror coatings provide exceptional performance in low-light situations. Contact Leupold at (800)-538-7653, or visit www.leupold.com.

Flambeau Outdoors’ new Wobble Gobble Motion Turkey Decoy (right) sits on a stake and moves with the wind, simulating the motion made by a walking turkey. The system comes with a Feather Flex hen or Aggressive Jake decoy, which can be mounted to a polyethylene base. Heavy monofilament attaches to a two-sided winding handle and can be attached to five positions on the base, altering the motion.
