Best Gear for Deer Hunting 2019

Deer season is right around the corner and now is the time to gear up for opening day. Here's a look at the year's best gear for deer hunting. It's the good stuff to help you hunt harder, more efficiently and more comfortably. Take a look at our Best Gear for Deer Hunting 2019.

True Talker OG Grunt Call ($19.99)

hunterspec.com

One of the most realistic deer grunt calls on the market has long been the True Talker grunt call from Hunter Specialties. The call is back and better than ever in the new True Talker OG Grunt Call. The True Talker OG features the original materials and design of the first True Talker ever produced. A soft rubber exterior for unbeatable grip and rubber sleeve over the bellow/grunt tube allows for the manipulation of volume, tone and direction of the call sound. Like True Talkers of the past, the OG produces mature buck grunt, young buck grunt, doe bleat and fawn bleat sounds. As an additional feature however, the True Talker OG features an improved reed design which not only is extremely resistant to freezing up, but produces a fifth sound – an aggressive “growl” sound for gaining the attention of aggressive mature bucks.

Primos Rack-n-Roll ($21.99)

primos.com

The Primos Rack-n-Roll is a super compact alternative to carrying real antlers to the woods. The Rack-n-Roll was designed and tested in an independent sound lab where a real recording of two 140” class bucks was broken down and analyzed by tone and frequency. The engineers at Primos then took that data and created individually tuned nodes that exactly match those tones and frequencies produced by mature bucks in battle. Multiple sections of nodes were combined to create the volume and realism of two full sets of antlers coming together. To top it off, the Rack-n-Roll is the only rattling device that allows you to rattle with one hand so you have a free hand to keep your bow or rifle ready. It's a really slick system that sounds very realistic.
