DAY

Many manufacturers compete in ingenuity to develop products that help us when we go after deer.

The bow and crossbow harvesting season has already begun in several sectors. Loaded weapon enthusiasts can try their luck this morning in a dozen areas. As for the most popular period, when the nemrods can use a rifle or a shotgun, you will have to wait until November 5. Enthusiasts, from most sectors, will then have a total of 16 days to outsmart these wary deer. Here are a few items that could prove very practical for amateurs looking for thrills.

Dry

The firm Yeti, known for its coolers and high-performance containers, offers a series of completely waterproof backpacks, the Panga 28. Athletes can store their various equipment in complete peace of mind in this featherweight 1.9 kg and a dimension of 31.8 x 17.8 x 50.8 cm in height. Puncture resistant and completely submersible, you will no longer have nasty surprises to find your lunch or your equipment completely soaked. Ergonomic DryHaul shoulder straps, sternum straps and hipbelt provide unparalleled comfort. In the same family, there are three very interesting waterproof sports bags, with a capacity of 50, 75 or 100 litres. What impresses me about these models with molded bottom and high density ThickSkin shell is that they can also be carried like backpacks. You can easily carry additional clothes and everything you need for the success of the excursion. www.yeti.ca

Warm

It's not uncommon on deer hunting for the mercury to plummet and your fingers to freeze. You could prevent this kind of unfortunate and uncomfortable situation by using an Eco Hot. These body and hand heat packs are reusable over 100 times. They are available in 30-minute 2″ x 3″ and 60-minute 4″ x 6″ formats. To activate them, just click on the internal pad and in two steps, three movements, they are activated to diffuse a soft and comforting heat. Sold in a pack of two, simply boil them to return them to a liquid state and be ready for your next use. Sail.ca

Well-lit

The BioLite USB rechargeable headlamp is very practical to help you find your way or a deer you have targeted. Available in four colors, it hugs the top of your head perfectly and offers different adjustments thanks to its exclusive 3D SlimFit design. With a front profile of just 9mm and a featherweight 69g, it's easy to hold on your forehead without worrying about bouncing or slipping. Moisture-wicking fabric keeps you cool and dry on the go. The rechargeable battery via Micro USB allows you to leave conventional batteries behind. With a power of 330 lumens, it will illuminate everything there is to see for 40 hours at low intensity and for 3.5 hours at full speed. Red night vision is also included. ddrpleinair.com

It is very frustrating to realize that the targeted bucks only walk around at night. You could switch them from nocturnal to daytime using the Magnum Scrape-Dripper scent drainer from Wildlife Research Center. Just fill it with 4 ounces of Active-Scrape Scent Lure or any other similar product. This device, which does not require batteries, will then release synthetic urine or other odoriferous liquids, drop by drop, only during daylight hours. During periods of rain and bad weather, it does not work, in order to avoid waste. Depending on temperature changes, you will get full appeal for 2-3 weeks. groupepronature.ca

Soothing

The Conquest Scents firm has developed EverCalm Cerf Herd scent sticks. They look like deodorant sticks and have the same texture. They can be applied to the bark of a tree, to its watchtower, to its boots, to its clothing, etc. The fragrant formula developed calms and reassures the animals in the area. What is great is that the product lasts a long time, even in the rain and is not volatile. www.canadiantire.ca/en/store-profile/qc/st-eustache-qc-218.html

Tampons

Several nemrods dump synthetic urine or other olfactory lures on a rag or piece of cloth. He hopes to spread the scent as long as possible. They would rather use the Key-Wick absorbent wicks. These high intensity scent dispensers are made with special synthetic felt that does not alter or change the scent of your lure. It offers extreme absorption and high dispersion of fragrance. Available in a pack of four, they come in a convenient shape that dips directly into an olfactory bottle. They cling easily to branches or twigs to really disperse odorous fumes. We can even tie them on the laces of our boots. facebook.com/Ecotoneferlandsports
