Is the Garmin XERO Legal in Your State?

Most Frequently Asked Questions About the Garmin Xero

Ever since the Garmin Xero bow sight came into the hunting world a lot of people had the same question, “Is this sight legal for me to hunt with?” To help figure out what states you can and cannot hunt in with the Garmin Xero, here are some frequently asked questions and answers regarding the legal use of the Xero A1 and A1i bow sight.

Hunter using the Garmin Xero

Does the Garmin Xero Bow Sight project visible light on the target during use?

No, the Xero Bow Sight projects only infrared (non-visible to the human eye) light onto the target as part of its laser range finding function.

Can the Garmin Xero Bow Sight ever be used to project visible light towards a target?

No.

point of view from garmin xero

You would see a non-magnified view with an LED pin when aiming with the Garmin Xero.

Does the Garmin Xero Bow Sight use illuminated pins?

Yes. The Xero Bow Sight uses light emitting diodes to present the pin for the shot onto a piece of angled glass. Light from this diode is then reflected back towards the eye of the archer.

Does the Garmin Xero Bow Sight provide a magnified view of the target?

No.

Is the Garmin Xero Bow Sight similar to a scope?

No. Scopes provide magnification. The Xero Bow Sight does not. The glass used in the sight is for the reflection of pins to the eye only. There is no magnification provided.

No visible light is illuminated from the sight to the target.

Does the Xero Bow Sight enhance vision to the target in dim or night conditions?

No, the Xero Bow Sight cannot illuminate the target. Only the aiming pins are illuminated. The infrared light used by the Xero is only used to range the target. It does not illuminate the target.

Is the Garmin Xero Bow Sight a “Laser Sight” or “Red Dot Sight”?

Those terms are typically used for sights that emit a human eye visible beam of red light to the target. The Xero Bows Sight’s laser range finding functionality only emits invisible, infrared light. The pins, which are visible to the hunter, are only projected towards the hunter’s eye.

Is the Garmin Xero Bow Sight legal for a certain state?

The Xero A1 & A1i bow sights are legal to use in the majority of the United States. It is the responsibility of the hunter to know the specific bowhunting regulations for their state and hunting region. Garmin does not publish the bowhunting regulations for each state as they vary and can change from year to year. We hope this article has answered your questions in regards to the legality of the Garmin Xero Bow Sight. ALWAYS review your desired state’s bowhunting regulations to confirm if the Xero A1 or A1i are legal to use.

 

Happy Hunting!

Accessories for Your Tree Stand

When up in the ladder stand, you’re definitely limited on where you can store your gear. With a box blind or pop-up, you have room to spread out, but not in a ladder stand. If you’re lucky, the trees around you have strong enough limbs, that you can hang your bow, binoculars, or whatever else. To combat that, our friends at Hawk Hunting and Hunting Made Easy have a few products that can solve this very problem.

 

Hawk Extendable Tree Arm

Hawk Hunting Xtendible Tree Arm – #1 SELLING PRO-GRADE TREE ARM

Made from aircraft-grade aluminum, the lightweight Xtendable Tree Arm extends from a trim 8.5 inches to 16.5 inches in length. Hawk’s famous Auger Tip threads make installation quick and painless.  The patent-pending anti-spin tree cantilever bites into bark and illuminates unwanted spinning or movement of the arm. Once installed, the arm pivots 180-degrees for precision weapon and gear placement. The oversized silent grip hook silently and securely hangs gear. The extendible tree arm also includes claw hanging hooks, allowing for versatile attachment and quick gear organization.

Tactical Solo Tree Hook

Hawk Hunting Tactical Solo Tree Hook – THE ORIGINAL PREMIUM TREE HOOK

Hawk also has a wide variety of hooks, like the Tactical Solo Tree Hook, and this is no typical tree hook. The Tactical Tree Hook features ultra-sharp AugerTip threads that start fast and allow for easy screwing into the densest of hardwoods.  No more pain in the hand. The 2.75-inch hook weighs just 2.1 ounces and can hold up to 60 pounds. Each hook is molded with a durable quiet finish and includes a thread-protecting cap, with an attached carabiner that makes transporting the hook a snap.

 

Hunting Made Easy Hunter’s Combo Pack

Hunting Made Easy – HUNTER’S COMBO PACK – 7″ SAW

Another handy tool that you can easily carry in your backpack when going into a ladder stand, is the Hunter’s Combo Pack from Hunting Made Easy. It contains a five or seven-inch folding saw and a pair of heavy-duty bypass shears. These products work in tandem to cut off any pesky tree limbs that might be in your way.

There’s always one branch. And no it doesn’t matter what you’re doing. I’ve always packed something like this. It’s just, it’s mandatory.  And I also use the clippers a lot in turkey season, deer season. The fact that I like is that it gives me a lot better lane, without losing a lot of cover. It just lives in my backpack all the time. – Wade Middleton

Hunting with the Thompson/Center Compass II Rifle

By Wade Middleton

Today on Cabela’s Deer Gear TV, we debut the new Thompson/Center Compass II Rifle, take an in-depth look at all the features packed into it, and we showcase our experience with it in the field.

 

The Thompson/Center Compass lineup of rifles, you know, I’m going flashback to when they first came out. You were looking at a model that hit the streets with a great price point, with phenomenal features right out of the box. It was designed to provide, one-inch grooves at 100 yards with good ammunition right when you got it. The original Thompson/Center Compass came fixed with Weaver mounts so you can mount your scopes very easily and without spending a ton of time worrying about it. You could easily tell with the three-position safety when it’s all the way back that bolt’s locked and not going to move for carrying and moving to and from your stand. The middle position of the safety is your safety position, and all the way forward that’s your fire. The Thompson/Center Compass also came with a flush mount rotary magazine, that’s easy to load, slaps right in, holds four to five rounds depending on the caliber that you’re dealing with and comes factory-direct with the ability to thread a suppressor on the muzzle.

Now when you flash forward to the Thompson/Center Compass II Bolt-Action Rifle, you’re basically adding a trigger to an already proven performer at an affordable price that’s going to be in the three to four-pound range of pull, what that gives you is a crisp, easy trigger action that is going to help improve your accuracy even more! You’re not going to feel that long pull that you find in a lot of rifle models out there. I mean, it’s so sweet when you pull the trigger, you’re just going to want to shoot box after box through it.

Wade kneels next to his first harvest (a velvet whitetail) with the Thompson/Center Compass II

We’ve been field-testing the Thompson/Center Compass II for the last few months and when you look at the proven performer that the Thompson/Center Compass already is, at the price point that you can purchase it at, with the variety of calibers that it comes in, it’s a model of rifle that I think anybody that likes to hunt should put one of these into their safe, into their closet, wherever they’re going to store it, and then they’re going to want to get out in the field with, time and time again, because it’s going to perform in the rugged mountains, the flat deserts, cold weather, up in a deer stand, in a pop-up blind, it’s just a proven performer that’s accurate, dependable, rugged, and it’s not going to break the bank.

The Fastest and Narrowest Forward-Draw Crossbow Ever

TenPoint Launches Fastest Forward-Draw Crossbow with
440 Feet-Per-Second and Safe De-Cocking in the
NEW 5.8” Wide Vengent S440

TenPoint Crossbow Technologies launched the NEW Vengent S440 at the 2020 ATA Show in Indianapolis, Indiana.  TenPoint’s fastest and forward-draw crossbow ever, the Vengent S440 delivers lightning speeds up to 440 FPS and features the NEW revolutionary ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system.  The ultra-fast crossbow is also our narrowest ever, measuring an incredible 5.8-inches wide, and weighs a half-pound less than previous TenPoint flagship models.

“We have always committed ourselves to building the best crossbows on the market and, while de-cocking is not a new concept to the crossbow market, the silent ACUslide is the first safe option to de-cock a crossbow with a crank,” said Rick Bednar, TenPoint CEO.

The NEW ACUslide features the company’s groundbreaking Auto-Brake Gear System, which allows for silent cocking and safe and controlled de-cocking of the crossbow.  The Auto-Brake Gear System eliminates the potential of losing control which can lead to injury or costly bow damage during the de-cocking process. While de-cocking with the ACUslide, the user can remove their hand from the handle at any point, with no other action required – and the handle will stop in place.

The NEW 7 ½-inch XTEND Adjustable Crank Handle reduces the cocking effort to 5-pounds and stores securely into the butt-stock.

The ACUslide system is integrated into the company’s NEW TEC-X stock.  The high strength-to-weight ratio of the NEW stock reduces the weight of the Vengent S440, including the cocking mechanism, to 7.7-pounds – a half-pound lighter than previous TenPoint flagship models.

 

Fueled by RX6-Cams™, the forward-draw bow assembly is the difference-maker for TenPoint’s fastest and narrowest forward draw crossbow. The innovative cam system rotates 360-degrees which powers the DUAL FLEX™ limbs to produce speeds up to an incredible 440 feet-per-second. The assembly’s revolutionary Vector-Quad™ cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two which eliminates cam lean and generates straight-nock travel leading to same-hole downrange accuracy.

A lightweight CNC machined 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum riser featuring the company’s TRI-LOCK™ pocket system ensures perfect alignment between the pocket and limbs for further increased accuracy.

The bow assembly is mounted to a NEW 20-inch -MICRO-TRAC™ fluted aluminum barrel which reduces the flight deck surface by an incredible 50%.  The minimal string-to-barrel contact provides the longest string life in the industry.

The new barrel is fitted with the company’s NEW S1 3.5-pound, two-stage trigger that delivers a crisp, consistent break. The trigger is equipped with a DFI™ (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor) and is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to reduce noise and vibration. An integrated string stop system is also included to further reduce noise and vibration.

Fully assembled, the crossbow weighs just 7.7-pounds, measures 35-inches (w/o stirrup) in length and shoots up to a supercharged 440 feet-per-second.

Decorated in Veil® Alpine camo or Graphite Gray, the Vengent S440 ships completely assembled and includes an extensive Ready-To-Hunt package.

The package includes:

  • ACUslide™ cocking and de-cocking system
  • RangeMaster™ Pro Variable Speed Scope
  • TenPoint Blazer™ Soft Crossbow Case
  • 6-pack of EVO-X CenterPunch™ Premium Carbon Crossbow Arrows (.001” straightness)
  • Integrated String Stop System
  • NEW 6-arrow Tech Quiver

TenPoint Raises the Bar with the Vapor RS470

470 Feet-Per-Second and Safe De-Cocking in the
NEW Ten Point Crossbows Vapor RS470

At the 2020 ATA Show in Indianapolis, IN, TenPoint Crossbow Technologies launched the world’s most technically advanced crossbow ever produced – the NEW Vapor RS470. Delivering supercharged speeds up to 470 FPS and featuring the NEW revolutionary ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system, the industry’s premiere crossbow measures an ultra-narrow 6.5-inches wide and weighs an incredible half-pound less than previous TenPoint flagship models.

“The Vapor is the most accurate crossbow I have ever shot.” Said Rick Bednar, TenPoint CEO. “We have always committed ourselves to building the best crossbows on the market and, while de-cocking is not a new concept to the crossbow market, the silent ACUslide is the first safe option to de-cock a crossbow with a crank”

The NEW ACUslide features the company’s groundbreaking Auto-Brake Gear System, which allows for silent cocking and safe and controlled de-cocking of the crossbow.  The Auto-Brake Gear System eliminates the potential of losing control which can lead to injury or costly bow damage during the de-cocking process.

The NEW 7 ½-inch XTEND Adjustable Crank Handle reduces the cocking effort to 5-pounds and stores securely into the butt-stock.

The ACUslide system is integrated into the company’s NEW TEC-X stock.  The high strength-to-weight ratio of the stock helps reduce the weight of the Vapor RS470, including the cocking mechanism, to 8-pounds – a half-pound lighter than previous TenPoint flagship models.

Fueled by RX7-Cams™ and SLING-SHOT technology, the reverse-draw bow assembly is the difference-maker for the world’s finest crossbow. The innovative cam system rotates an industry-leading 404-degrees which powers the DUAL FLEX™ limbs, while the SLING-SHOT technology provides an extra turbo boost to produce speeds up to an unprecedented 470 feet-per-second. The assembly’s revolutionary Vector-Quad™ cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two which eliminates cam lean and generates straight-nock travel leading to same-hole downrange accuracy.

A lightweight CNC machined 7075-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum riser featuring the company’s TRI-LOCK™ pocket system ensures perfect alignment between the pocket and limbs for further increased accuracy.
