Editor's Choice Awards: Best Gear for This Year
August 08, 2012
For the last three years, Petersen's Hunting has awarded manufacturers with the Editor's Choice Award for best-in-class products. This award is given to products that embody the ideal combination of quality, craftsmanship, ingenuity and value. Hundreds of products are thoroughly tested by staff writers and editors in real-world conditions. Where scientific measures can be used for quantifiable results, they are. Where they can't, years of hunting experience and practical field knowledge become the yardstick.
The Annual Gear Issue lists the best of the best products for over 20 categories spanning from centerfire rifles to treestands to sleeping bags. To make the cut for inclusion is a testament to a product's quality, but there can only be one Editor's Choice winner per category, so let the games begin.
