Tru-Fire’s Edge and its dime-sized head were a big hit in 2009, and it’s back with a new and improved forward trigger. This release also features an internal linear motion bearing, creating ultra-smooth trigger pull. Other attractive features of the Edge include lockable length adjustment and adjustable trigger pull.

The TruGlo Micro-Brite Sight line is continually successful because of its myriad of unique characteristics beginning with fiber-optic pins that get smaller as the distance gets longer. There are also tool-less ultra-fine click adjustments for windage and elevation, wrapped fiber optics, a glow-in-the-dark shooter’s ring, an adjustable level, a reversible mounting bracket that enhances vertical positioning and a push-button light. TruGlo has added their new Tru-Touch technical coating this year which gives the sight a soft feel—a nice addition to an already strong product.
Whether you decide to spot and stalk or opt for a more leisurely stand hunt, this sport is tons of fun.

Wild hogs seem like they were created for bowhunters. They are prolific, accessible, don’t have the best eyesight in the world and are excellent table fare. Over the past 20 years, I have hunted pigs in Africa, New Zealand, Hawaii and all over the continental US, and without a doubt my favorite places to pursue porkers are cattle ranches.

LimbSaver’s Prism-Lite sights pioneered the system which adds brightness to pins by channeling light through a prism directly into the fiber optics. The lightweight and durable sight offers .019- and .029-inch thin pins, and the aluminum poly-carbonate housing comes in Next Generation G-1 camo or a soft matte black finish. The Prism-Lite sight has an optional L.E.D. Light System that allows for bleed-free light concentration for use in darker situations. New for this year are improved precision index marks that allow for exact adjustments when sighting-in.

Last evening I was practicing my shooting for an upcoming antelope hunt, and I inadvertently punched a hole in one of the vanes on one of the arrows. That hole occurred when I shot three arrows at one spot on the target at 40 yards. While that sort of tight-group accuracy is hugely satisfying, it can be hard on fletching.
