Gear for Deer

Here's the latest deer gear you'll want to check out for hunting season direct from the pages of American Hunter magazine.

Scientists claim deer can see in the ultraviolet light spectrum, and therefore your orange vest that uses UV brightening dies stands out by appearing blue to deer in daylight. Atsko touts that its U-V-Killer Camo orange vest will make you blend in. At the very least, it will make you legal in the eyes of the warden. ($31)

Bushnell improves its best-selling trail-cams with its Trophy Cam HD that produces 8 MP images and videos. It has a field scan mode, moon and temp stamp, night vision LEDs and a .6-second trigger speed. Most notably, it can last for up to a year on eight AA batteries. ($199)

You’ve gotta play the wind, but reducing human scent will up your success. Wildlife Research Center's Scent Killer and products, from its soap, Gold Body Wash, laundry detergent and dryer sheets to its deodorant and Field Wipes, do the trick. (Under $15 per product)

Scent Blocker’s scent-reducing clothing system is available in various styles and weights. Its System Layer Three Knock Out Bone Collector jacket and pant features Trinity scent absorption technology, flexible S3 anti-microbial polyester fabric, Realtree X-tra camo and all the pockets deer hunters need in a mid-weight garment. Jacket or pant. ($129 each)

The Viscerator is a field-dressing knife designed to gut and sever the pelvic bone by leveraging the unique double blade design on both sides. Minnesota deer hunter Chris Stuckel invented it to be very safe even when hands are slippery with blood. ($69)

The H in Magellan's eXplorist 350H  stands for hunters. It’s a simple, five-button GPS that features waypoint icons to mark treestands  or other points much quicker than typing "Treestand." It has pre-loaded GMU topo maps, and a mode that makes navigating back to where you started simple. It's waterproof and works for hours on two AA batteries. ($249)
