Pop-Up Decoy
Here’s a full decoy set you can carry in your fanny pack. Available in elk, antelope and whitetail deer, Montana Decoys are printed from real photographs and wired with flexible titanium. They look so real from a distance that we recommend you wear orange when you hunt near one. (From $89.95; 406-748-3092; www.montanadecoy.com)

** Better Than Rubber**
Irish Setter’s Whitetail Trackers are generations past rubber boots. The Whitetail Tracker has an UltraDry waterproof moisture management lining, breathable Airprene material (no more clammy feet in cold, damp rubber boots), ScentBan to eat deer-spooking foot odor, adjustable gussets with a Quick-Lok, a steel shank for solid support, 800 grams of Thinsulate insulation, Air Bob lugs for deep-cutting traction and, lest it lose all resemblance, a hard rubber toe. Can you imagine a better bowhunting boot? (From $109; 888-738-8370; www.irishsetterboots.com)
