The new Mini-Pump Action Yelper from Lohman provides mouth-call quality sound in a pocket-size, easy-to-operate mechanical unit. Measuring less than 6 inches while collapsed, the call is small enough to fit in a hunter’s pocket, while allowing one-hand operation. Hunters will find the injection-molded call weather-resistant, with an easy-to-adjust spring. SRP: $16.99. Booth #3313. (877-956-5746. www.kolpin.com)
Luminox introduces the U.S. Navy SEALS dive watch collection. The watches have a great feature: self-illuminating markers that will glow 100 times brighter than conventional luminous dials. The watches feature a stainless steel 44mm case with a crown protector that’s water resistant to 200 meters or 660 feet, a sapphire glass crystal with anti-reflective coating and a multi-jewel Swiss quartz movement with date function.

Primos Hunting Calls
A shoulder holster for your calls, the Gobbler Vest is designed to organize calls in specific places for quick retrieval.

This technology from Polartec is exclusively licensed to Browning. The new Gator Fleece Parka is made from Polartec fabric that sheds water and snow while providing four times greater windproofing than standard fleece.

The parka features seamless shoulders, ventilated pockets, Lycra cuffs and a detachable hood. SRP: $195. Booth #7477. (800-333-3504; www.polartec.com)

The Life Lock handgun-storage device allows a firearm to be safely stored and retrieved instantly by the person(s) whose fingerprints are authorized to open it. The doccking station can be attached to a wall, the floor or a car. The enclosed firearm only releases when an authorized fingerprint or thumbprint is read by the sensor. Up to 15 fingerprints can be authorized and fingerprints can be dirty, sweaty or wet. The docking station cannot be disassembled and unauthorized removal of the fire-arm is virtually impossible.
