Crossbows: Power, Speed, Accuracy – Full Episode

In this episode of Cabela’s Deer Gear TV, we are looking at the extraordinary knockdown power, speed, and accuracy that comes from a TenPoint Crossbow. We’ll review TenPoint’s Crossbow of the Year, the Stealth NXT and also debut TenPoint’s newest and most powerful crossbow ever to hit the market the Nitro XRT. You’ll see incredible hunting action showing the knockdown and accuracy of the models as well as insight on the features of both the Stealth NXT and Nitro XRT models. We’ll also then look at a comparison of the penetration power of the new Nitro XRT next to a 44 Mag handgun when it comes to creating wound channels. Later on, in the show, we’ll also go on two separate crossbow hunts where we’ll showcase hunting action from the field on two whitetail hunts.

YAMAHA’S WOLVERINE X2 NAMED FIELD AND STREAM MAGAZINE’S BEST OF THE BEST!

 

Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, has earned the 2018 Field and Stream Magazine Best Hunting and Fishing Gear of 2018 honor for the Wolverine X2 Side-by-Side (SxS).

“The perfect hunting rig needs to be roomy enough to carry a couple of hunters and all their gear, powerful enough to get them into hard-to-reach places, and quiet enough to not send deer bolting in every direction,” wrote Field and Stream contributor Rick Sosebee. “The new Yamaha Wolverine X2 does all that, with a killer warranty and a surprising extra that’s perfect for the outdoorsman.”

Named the top off-road vehicle for hunting and fishing adventures, the 2019 Wolverine X2 combines Proven Off-Road capability and confidence-inspiring performance with Real World comfort in a compact, nimble chassis to make it the ultimate trail-exploring vehicle in tight, technical terrain. It is purpose built for exploration, work, and play, featuring a comfortable two-person cab configuration, a smooth, quiet, and vibration-free 847-cc twin cylinder engine, a 600-pound-rated dump bed, and 2,000-pound towing capacity. The new X2 also comes with Yamaha’s unmatched 10-year CVT belt warranty – an industry exclusive.

 

 

“The Wolverine X2 offers the ultimate off-road adventure package, combining Yamaha’s industry-leading durability and reliability in a compact and nimble chassis,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s motorsports group marketing manager. “The Wolverine X2’s Proven Off-Road design gives it the best balance of capability, comfort and confidence in real world environments to suit the needs of everyone from seasoned trail-goers to first-time adventure-seekers, earning its spot among Field and Stream’s best outdoor products of 2018.”

 

 

Every Yamaha SxS is assembled at Yamaha’s U.S. factory in Newnan, Georgia, for worldwide distribution.

A TICK(ing) Time Bomb

Due to the mild winter we had last year, the tick population (much like other insects) have thrived and emerged earlier than usual. On top of that, in 2010, there was a very large acorn crop which caused a rise in the white-footed mouse population.

So you’re probably asking what mice and acorns have to do with ticks? Well, when the ticks hatched they had an endless buffet of mice to feed and grow. Now here in 2018, mice are in short-supply so these same ticks will resort to the next best thing for food – humans!

“This year’s tick season is the worst in years!” -PestWorld.org

A list of diseases that ticks can carry.

For use on clothing, tents, sleeping bags, and other outdoor gear, Sawyer Permethrin is more than just an insect repellent — it actually kills ticks, mosquitoes, spiders, chiggers, mites, and more than 55 other kinds of insects. Permethrin is also effective against the Yellow Fever Mosquito, which can transmit the Zika Virus.

Providing a fantastic odorless barrier of protection, a single application of Permethrin lasts for 6 weeks or 6 washings. Using it on outdoor gear also helps reduce the mosquito population in your camp and prevents ticks from attaching to you.

Maximize protection from mosquitoes and ticks by combining Permethrin with Sawyer Picaridin, an effective and comfortable topical repellent.

Yamaha Sponsors National Hunting and Fishing Day 2018

As the leading powersports supporter of access, conservation and outdoor education, Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, is again sponsoring National Hunting and Fishing Day (NHF Day) to raise awareness for our annual celebration of outdoor recreation.

Each year, NHF Day brings together sportsmen and women to celebrate the rich tradition of fishing and hunting with national, state, regional and local organizations hosting fishing- and hunting-related events.

Yamaha’s continued funding of the NHF Day Live It! Grants is complemented by a Wolverine X4 Side-by-Side sweepstakes at www.YamahaOutdoors.com/NHFDay.

“Yamaha once again is stepping up to support our efforts to expose more and more people to positive experiences in the outdoors,” said Misty Mitchell, director of Conservation for Wonders of Wildlife. “With the continued help of passionate and caring companies such as Yamaha, we are making great strides in fulfilling our mission this year. We thank them for their support over the last decade and for what should be another successful campaign.”

Yamaha’s annual sponsorship of NHF Day is aimed at raising awareness and support for outdoor recreation and conservation. As part of Yamaha’s support, it is offering to give away a 2018 Wolverine X4 featuring the industry’s quietest, comfortable and confidence inspiring 847-cc twin cylinder engine in a SxS.

The Yamaha Wolverine X4 Side-by-Side

The Wolverine X4 is Proven Off-Road and the ideal hunting and fishing partner. With superior handling, especially on tight, technical trails, combined with Yamaha’s legendary Real World Tough durability and reliability, the Wolverine X4 is a recreational four-seat SxS vehicle designed for outdoor adventures. The sweepstakes is open to men and women, ages 18-years-of-age or older, through the end of October 2018.

“Yamaha’s Outdoor Access Initiative, which helps fund the annual NHF Day Live It! Grant program, is celebrating 10 years of supporting access,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “Everyone at Yamaha is proud to continue our decade-long support of National Hunting and Fishing Dayand the program’s mission to get people outdoors. Everyone who enjoys public land has a responsibility to support and protect it, and we encourage all outdoor enthusiasts to learn how they can get involved at YamahaOAI.com.”

Congress established National Hunting and Fishing Day to recognize hunters and anglers for their leadership in fish and wildlife conservation. Since launching in 1971, each fourth Saturday in September is set aside as NHF Day. This day brings together sportsmen and women to celebrate the rich tradition of fishing and hunting with national, state, regional and local organizations hosting fishing- and hunting-related events. This year’s NHF Day is set for September 22 with retired NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. serving as honorary chairman.

NHF Day’s official home is at the Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium in Springfield, Missouri. Both entities share the goal of strengthening the image of hunting, shooting and fishing. NHF Day is one of the most effective grassroots campaigns to promote hunters, anglers and the conservation of wildlife and habitat. Each year, thousands of people participate in NHF Day events across the country to commemorate the foundation of conservation through fishing and hunting.

NHF Day is made possible through the sponsorship and generous support of these well-respected companies and brands: Bass Pro Shops, Yamaha, Realtree, Ducks Unlimited, National Wild Turkey Federation, Izaak Walton League and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation.
