On Wisconsin Outdoors: May/June 2017 Product 6-Pack

Product 6-Pack
Fishing in full swing, trying to tag a late season turkey, or just taking it easy

Turkey on a Stick
You may have seen the video and if you haven’t – take a look. A big gobbler is slowly trailing some hens, that are clearly not interested, through a field. Calling doesn’t get his attention. Finally, the hunter emerges behind a Jake decoy and the gobbler goes crazy. Defending his territory, the big Tom runs to chase the competition away. But the hunter is waiting and they are in for some close, quick action. I was skeptical at first but this product really works and brings a whole new excitement level to turkey hunting. ($48.45)

Crazy Creek Comfort Chair
This one comes from a friend who spends every waking minute in the outdoors. “What took me years to figure out was how awesome a sitting pad is,” was his advice. Perfect for making all your outdoor activities more comfortable, plus you can use it for taking in a ball game this summer. Easy to carry handles, light at 783 grams, and foam padding to insulate you and make hard surfaces more comfortable. Quick release buckets for multiple back angles.

Trail Cam of a Different Kind – Ruffed Grouse Drumming
