Plan on turning predators into prey this year? Here are a few must-have products that will help you get the job done.
ALPS OutdoorZ Enforcer Predator Pack
Because the great outdoors is BYOC (Bring Your Own Chair), ALPS built one into the Enforcer. Part chair, pack and vest, the Enforcer sports a large rear compartment, removable front pockets, a removable foam seat and a built-in, removable kickstand frame with adjustable legs so you can set an ambush just about anywhere. MSRP: $179.99; alpsoutdoorz.com.
Swagger Stalker QD42
The Stalker QD42 provides support and the ability to twist and track moving targets in a quick-detach package. Attach this bipod to a Pic rail or sling-swivel stud and remove with the push of a button. Legs independently adjust from 14 to 42 inches. Weighs only 15 ounces. MSRP: $129.99; swaggerbipods.com.
Wildlife Research Center Predator Sniper Scent
Place on wicks around your decoy or call to send the strong odor downwind, triggering the primal instinct that should overcome any hesitation from a wary coyote as it circles. MSRP: $12.99; wildlife.com.
Dead Air Sandman-S Suppressor
The Sandman-S measures just over 7 inches long and weighs only 18 ounces, yet it quiets everything from a .17 HMR to a .300 Win. Mag. What’s more, the Sandman mounts to your rifle via Dead Air’s super-solid Keymount Muzzle Brake, which makes attaching and removing the can a simple process. All suppressors must be purchased from a Class III dealer. MSRP: $1,049; deadairsilencers.com.
EHG Piedmont Bib and Rainier Jacket
A breathable, waterproof shell keeps the wind and water at bay, and in the bitter cold the removable insulated liner of the Piedmont Bib can be a game changer. Remove the shoulder straps to wear as a standard pant. The Rainier Jacket sports Primaloft insulation, a soft, quiet polyester shell, wind-blocking protection and a water-repellant finish. Available in Mossy Oak camo (Mountain Country shown). MSRP: $199.99 bib, $149.99 jacket; ehggear.com.
