New gear for big game plus Benelli's latest shotgun

New gear for big game plus Benelli's latest shotgun

Take to the field with these 5 new products for your most productive hunting season ever.

1.-Benelli-HUNS-170020-SHT-010

Benelli's Latest Super Black Eagle

For 25 years, Benelli's Super Black Eagle shotguns have been the semiautos to beat in the field and marsh. The SBE 3 is the latest evolution of this durable and versatile series. Benelli engineers focused on improving the ergonomics, function, and aesthetics, essentially melding the best of the SBE 2 with modern innovations, including an updated recoil-management system. The hallmark Inertia System still makes it go "bang" consistently. A beveled loading port, redesigned carrier, larger bolt release and safety, and an outward-angled drop lever for easy operation are just some of the user-friendly highlights of the third generation of the SBE. Available in black synthetic, Realtree Max-5, Mossy Oak Bottomland, and Gore Optifade Timber | $1,900; benelliusa.com


2.-Bronwing-HUNP-171000-NG-001b


Browning's New Full HD Trailcam

Looking to up your scouting game? Browning's Recon Force Extreme Full HD trail cam is your ticket. With 20-megapixel pictures, the trail cam has a full 80 feet of motion detection, and the built-in infrared flash can reach over 120 feet. Pair that with its 0.4-second trigger speed and you're all but guaranteed that big buck will have his photo snapped. Not happy with just photos? The cam takes full HD video clips with sound. A two-inch color viewing screen is an added bonus | $180; browningtrailcameras.com

3.-Garmin-HUNP-171000-NG-002

Garmin's New Satellite Communicator




Unplugging from the cell phone is OK when heading into the backcountry, but to ensure your safety, take along the Garmin inReach Explorer+. The handheld satellite communicator has built-in GPS navigation and uses global Iridium satellite coverage, enabling you to text from the device anywhere on earth. Use it to track and share your location with friends or to trigger an SOS if you're in an emergency. A satellite subscription is required | $550; garmin.com

4.-Winchester-HUNS-170020-AMO-016

New Long-Range Loads from Winchester


Loaded with Nosler's sleek AccuBond Long Range bullets, this long-range hunting load provides superior ballistics and terminal performance. A long, sleek ogive combined with a generous boattail and a polymer tip offer outstanding aerodynamics, and a bonded-core construction with a heavy rear jacket section minimizes fragmentation. New for 2017, the line includes six popular calibers ranging from 6.5 Creedmoor to .300 Win. Mag | $45 — $60 per 20; winchester.com

5.-Leica-HUNS-170020-OPT-019

New Scope Line from Leica

The Leica ER 5 line of scopes feature exceptional glass, and six models from which to choose, ranging from 1-5X24 to a far-reaching 5-25X26. To prove their durability, sample scopes were mounted on rifles that fired 500 rounds of .300 Win. Mag. followed by 100 rounds of .416 Rigby. The scopes were then remounted on a high-accuracy test bed rifle and tested for predictability and repeatability of windage/elevation adjustment by shooting 20 one-inch squares without fail | $1,430; leica-camera.com

Venison Cheeseburger Bites

Venison Cheeseburger Bites

If you're tired of the same old jalapeno and cream cheese poppers, here's a completely different take on the popular party appetizer. Easy to make, and incredibly delicious, these mini cheeseburgers, wrapped in bacon, make the perfect one-bite-fits-all snack for your next tailgate party or hunting camp.

Stuffed Elk Backstrap Recipe

Stuffed Elk Backstrap Recipe

Take your venison loin to a whole new level with this delicious reverse-seared stuffed elk backstrap. Smoking the backstrap on a Camp Chef Woodwind pellet grill first, then finishing it on a blazing-hot skillet or flattop, creates a perfectly cooked, medium-rare steak with a crispy, seared exterior. The filling of diced mushrooms and creamy Boursin cheese adds a whole new level of amazing flavors to an otherwise classic smoked venison loin.

Venison Curry Recipe

Venison Curry Recipe

Hearty and flavorful, this curry is simple to make and requires just a few ingredients you can likely find at your local store. The cooking method turns tough cuts tender, making it a great choice for shoulder and hindquarter cuts from deer, elk and other venison. Bonus points if you use axis deer, which are native to India.
