    Portable charging power makes great stocking stuffer

    It’s down to the wire, and though you’ve got most of your Christmas shopping completed, you have the feeling that you’re missing that one last gift to top off the stocking for your favorite outdoorsman. Shotgun shells? Spinnerbaits? No, get them something they won’t buy themselves, and something they need more than they know. Power.

    Sportsman Responder

    Sportsman performance shirts

    The Sportsman Store has upgraded their performance shirt line-up with two new fall offerings — the Responder and the Equinox. The Responder is a shirt you’ll never want to take off. It’s made with a smart fabric that dials into your body temperature, keeping you warm and comfortable when it’s cool out but never sticky and sweaty while walking to the duck blind or deer stand. The Responder is available in the Camo logo, Mallard, Big Rack and new Sportsman logo. The Equinox is truly a versatile shirt with fast absorption and quick-drying qualities for when you need it. The slightly brushed lightweight fabric also adds a bit of warmth and softness. This great-looking shirt has natural stretch and plenty of room for ease of movement in the field or on the water.

That one was also an 8 pointer, but unlike the first buck, this was a 130-class deer, a true trophy, especially for Pender County.

Having photographic evidence of what passes through our hunting grounds is a piece of the hunting puzzle that sportsmen of decades ago never had access to, and the knowledge it gives us is unbeatable.
