ATA Manufacturers Turning Their Attention to Women

One trend that I defanitely noticed at this years ATA Show was all of the products aimed at the women hunters. Everything from two booths of clothing designed exclusively for women to all of the pink accents for bows and other products. Women have made it known that they are tired of having to make due with wearing oversized mens hunting clothes. And it appears the manufacturing industry has heard them. I'll give a quick rundown of some of the highlights here and get more specific in later blogs.

Prois has a complete line up of womens hunting apparel. From camaflauge to stylish shooters jackets. I was told these are the clothes Sarah Palin is wearing on her TV show Sarah Palins Alaska on TLC.

Scent Blocker now has a complete line of womens hunting clothes including insulating under layers designed to fit women.

And now as modeled by the Scent  Blocker Girls wearing their stylish Badge Holders. 

Realtree has an extensive line of womens casual clothing and shoes in their RealtreeGirl (RG) line up.


A clever play on words.


Buckwear has a number of T-Shirt designs for women also.

Alpine has added the Blush bow to their stable.


30.06 Gear has a number of accessories designed with the women in mind.


Hunter Safety Systems has a new model of safety vest accented to suit women.

Haley Vines has hunting clothing as well as accessories made to suit a womans taste.

Strother Bows has the sexy Allure bow in black dressed up with pink accents.

And of course we have the pink Crush bag target from Morrell in honor of Miss Tiffany Lakowski

So all you ladies out there, your day has come. At least as far as the ATA is concerned. This is the most products designed specifically for women I have seen at an ATA Show. I also noticed a lot more women working in the booths as well walking the isles of the show checking out the new products.

Alpine Bows releases NEW Jim Shockey Signature Bow!

Alpine bows and Jim Shockey have recently teamed up to bring you one of this year’s most exciting new signature series compound bows, introducing the new signature series Yukon.

The power train of the Yukon is Alpine Archery’s tried and true Velocitec cam coupled with a matched set of Gordon Composites Power Tuff limbs finished in Realtree Hardwoods HD. The precision matched limbs are affixed to the Yukon Riser with Alpine’s VX inter-loc pocket system, known as the most positive and rugged limb mounting system in the archery industry. The long list of features on the Yukon includes a custom string dampener that employs the Simms Decelerator module, Simms string leeches and Alpine’s own limb and cable guard dampeners and sports a twisted red and black, prestreched Stone Mountain “Dakota” bowstring.

The Yukon riser is coated with a black wrinkle powder coat finish. Accented by an elegant, laser engraved and checkered grip featuring Jim’s initials. The riser is finished off with an antiqued medallion and fiberlok shelf pad.

Included with every Silverado Series bow (including this new Yukon) are two small 3/8” carbon rods. These rods are designed specifically for the purpose of loading or cocking the cam. By loading or cocking the cam, one can relax the string or buss without the use of a bow press to install a peep, arrow rest cord, or change the string or buss cable. This method is much faster and easier than using a bow press.

Jim is proud to endorse the Yukon by Alpine Archery and will also be using one to hunt across the world for a variety game animals. Tune in to his show and see for yourself that Jim Shockey is now bowhunting with his Alpine bow! NO GUFF!!!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Jim Shockey Grip is checkered, with Jim's initials lazed into the inlay for a high end custom touch.    

                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The Yukon has a FiberLoc shelf pad to reduce arrow contact noise, a Signature Series exclusive.

A little about the Jim Shockey Signature Series Yukon Velocitec Cam 28-31".

By combining two distinctly different string profiles, the Velocitec Cam System produces unrelenting speeds and tons of stored energy with a super smooth feel. The speed is produced by the power cam with a radical draw lobe while the consistent radius of the control cam keeps the draw cycle and shot sequence smooth. The balance of the Velocitec Cam is proven and acquired by the dual payout groove on the outside boss of each cam, making the Velocitec one of the fastest cams available in the industry today.
