Hunting Gear

Reviews of the best new hunting bows, crossbows, camo, boots, treestands, and more—plus the best tips for getting the most out of your own hunting gear.

THE HUNTING GEAR PAGE

You don’t need new or fancy gear to be a good hunter, but you do need gear you can rely on. That’s where we come in. We expect our hunting gear to be reliable, durable, effective, and reasonably priced for the money, and our mission is to find the best gear out there and tell you about it. We’ll review new gear and tell you what features we love, what products we don’t, and what items fall short. When you buy something using the retail links on our site, we may earn a small commission, but we never accept money for editorial gear reviews. 


You can expect to find hunting gear coverage of all kinds, from duck guns and deer rifles to hunting knives and packs to outerwear, boots, waders, and more. Keep an eye out for our annual flagship hunting gear tests of optics like binoculars, riflescopes, spotting scopes, plus compound bows and crossbows. And when we say test, we mean test: We put each piece of hunting gear through a rigorous series of objective and subjective evaluations by a panel of our experts, and grade each piece accordingly. You’ll also find our favorite tried-and-true gear, best-of roundups, gift guides, and first-looks at new products.
