2022 Ammo of the Year: Winchester 6.8 Western

Any way you cut it, this cartridge is a long-range winner. It maintains its energy at distance, and it’s plenty accurate, too.

2022 Optic of the Year: ATN ThOR 4 Thermal Riflescope

ATN Corp. sits at the cutting edge of consumer-based thermal technology, and its ThOR 4 Series 640x480 2.5-25x50mm is the best such riflescope it offers.

2022 Muzzleloader of the Year: CVA Paramount HTR .40-Caliber

With its hunting-style stock, adjustable comb and premium Bergara barrel, the .40-caliber CVA Paramount HTR is capable of producing centerfire velocities previously thought unattainable from a muzzleloader.

2022 Handgun of the Year: Colt Anaconda

When Colt introduced its new and improved Python revolver a couple of years ago, hunters admired it but waited for their gun: the Anaconda. Last year they got it, a .44 Magnum hunting handgun with a glossy finish, big grips and the world-famous Colt ventilated rib.

American Hunter's 2022 Golden Bullseye Award Winners

The editors of American Hunter have announced the recipients of our 2022 Golden Bullseye Awards.

2021 Gear of the Year: Tetra Hearing

Tetra Hearing was founded by two audiologists who knew that in the field, hunters need to hear sounds unique to their quarry, and to a lesser extent human conversation, but not much else—especially not gunfire. Their tinkering produced technology to improve a hunter’s hearing and protect it at the same time.

2021 Muzzleloading Product of the Year: Traditions NitroFire and Federal Premium FireStick

The new NitroFire and FireStick system keeps ignition consistent by protecting the powder, even during storage; the loading process is easy, and the primer can be left in the FireStick or removed without compromising the charge; and the system doesn’t restrict the choice of bullets and 209 muzzleloader primers, meaning hunters can stick with proven favorites.
