Cold Snap Toothpick


Cold Snap Toothpick

Cold Snap Outdoors

Don’t let the simplistic look of the Cold Snap Toothpick fool you! There are many advantages to fishing with tungsten jigs, low cost and durability are not on one of them. Then when removing an impaled jig from a fish with a forceps, or pliers will often cause the paint to flake off the jig, or breakage of the hook shank ruining a perfectly good jig. However, this handy tool will save you time, and money on the water by requiring only a simple push the opposite direction! Plus it comes pre drilled for attachment to your lanyard or purchase one with a lanyard attached already! Makes a great stocking stuffer!

Two sizes, regular and extra long

Prices range from $2.49-$5.99

Nockturnal Universal Fit LED Lighted Nocks


Lighted nocks, the old adage of “you have to spend money to make money” couldn’t be more true when purchasing arrows and broadheads. Adding a lighted nock is a simple way to protect your investment! Finding an arrow once it’s been fired is key in saving time and energy on game recovery or for those missed target shots. Nockturnal Universal Fit LED Lighted Nocks are universal meaning they fit most arrows on the market which makes them a great stocking stuffer for the archer in your life!

Scent Control


Scent Control

Dead Down Wind & Code Blue

On the flip side of smelling like a buck or doe, smelling like the inside of your pickup and a breakfast burrito is no good either. Reach for easy-to-use spray-based scent removers like Dead Down Wind and Code Blue to cover up those lingering “un-natural” scents.  When your hunter steps out of the pickup, and sprays themself with a field spray it just might seal the deal on a monster buck when the wind turns against them. Because many hunters use this up every season, they can never have too much! Scent killers are a great stocking stuffer for most any deer hunter which is why we have 30% off all scent control, in-store only,  December 20th-24th (15% off online), PLUS pre-made scent stockings ready to go! (see below)

Megan Radtke

Megan Radtke is an accomplished hunter and angler with a unique ability to share her love for the great outdoors and all things wild with her family and friends. Growing up in a region known to sportsman for its wide variety of hunting and fishing opportunities, Megan immersed herself in a Central Wisconsin lifestyle filled with options. For example: deciding which tree stand to hunt after school or if she’d have better luck fishing instead were just some of the decisions this young woman had to make. Surrounded by an outdoors bound family, filled with love and mentors galore Megan grew up hook and worm fishing for native brook trout and rifle hunting whitetail bucks. She had soon discovered however that wasn’t challenging enough so over the years she’s taken on fly fishing and bow hunting, actually quitting rifle hunting altogether. It soon became apparent that chasing whitetails and longbeards wasn’t enough for her, so she set her sights on something even bigger: Black Bear. Bear hunting was relatively new for Megan’s family, but she pursued it with tenacity, finding a new passion and even harvesting a Pope and Young bruin. Outside of hunting, Megan is an avid photographer, having been published by the Montana Department of Tourism. She also loves sharing her passion for the outdoors with other women and children, introducing them to the sport. She encourages women to break barriers and to prove that they can do what they love while crushing the glass ceiling of a male dominated sport.
