Gearing up for Florida's spring turkey season? Might check out the Blind Buddy, a new product from Great Day.
The Blind Buddy is designed to effectively and comfortably hold your weapon for quick access inside a ground blind. It stakes into the ground and cradles a shotgun, bow, rifle or crossbow, and can be used to hang a bow with arrow cocked and ready (a huge advantage for bowhunters trying to bag a wary tom). It's built of aircraft aluminum, weighs 3 1/2 pounds, and retracts to 31 inches long for transport. Made in the U.S.A. by Great Day, a fabrication company based in Tallulah, LA. Great Day builds all kinds of useful stuff, from ATV and truck accessories, to canopies and loading ramps.
And be sure to check out the March 2012 print edition of Florida Sportsman Magazine, which should be on newsstands and in mailboxes early next week! Local pro Scott Ellis has a great story on calling tactics for difficult birds (isn't that all of them?).
Also good time to check up on turkey hunting regulations. Click here for the FWC site.
