Hub-style ground blinds provide today’s hunters with effective and portable concealment. They set up and tear down fast, delivering the ability to hunt with confidence from nearly any location. It’s why just about every serious deer or turkey hunter has at least one of these magic makers in their arsenal – and chances are good, it bears the Ameristep name.
Known and admired for its rugged Spider Hub® frame, hardworking features and hunter-friendly price, the durable and dutiful Ameristep Brickhouse Blind has been a favorite among hunters since it was first introduced in 2010. And now, the gurus of ground blinds at Ameristep have taken everything great about the original Brickhouse and made it even better… by giving it the silent treatment.
Like the original, the new Silent Brickhouse™ provides ample room for up to three hunters, but improved features now cloak those hunters in silence. A patent-pending, hinged silent door system replaces the old zippered design, simplifying entry and exit with absolutely zero noise. Additionally, new silent mesh windows facilitate viewing and shooting adjustments without the alarming sounds of zippers or Velcro.
Additional new features of the Silent Brickhouse include patent-pending organic window shapes that lack hard lines and blend in better with the natural environment, as well as an expanded choice of exterior camouflage options. Silent Brickhouse is available in versatile Mossy Oak Break-Up Country or all-new Realtree Edge.

Model # AMEBL3002 in Realtree Edge
Model # AMEBF3007 (Canadian Compliant) in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country
Shhh. Don’t make a racket and expect to get ‘er done when nature is listening. Thanks to Ameristep, the all-new Silent Brickhouse blind will make sure whatever you’re hunting doesn’t hear a sound.
Muskegon, MI (March 21, 2018) – There’s a right way and a wrong way to do everything. And when it comes to storing your deer-hunting clothing and accessories, even well intended hunters make mistakes. If you are using an airtight tote or dedicated storage bag to minimize contamination from ambient odors, congratulations; you’re on the right track.
But there’s a better way.
Toss your tote, repurpose your bag, and step up to the better odor-destroying storage system for your hunting apparel and gear. The new OZChamber 8K Storage Bag from ScentLok combines the power of CycleClean™? and OZInject™? ozone technologies with carbon adsorption to literally destroy the odors that attach themselves to clothing and gear and ruin hunts.
Patented ScentLok Carbon Alloy™? hunting garments have been proven deadly in the field, by combining activated carbon with zeolite and treated carbon to help adsorb a larger spectrum of odors – as well as targeting specific odors – better than ever before. But every piece of gear a hunter takes into the field picks up additional ambient odors that can be alarming to deer. That’s why odor-control storage is critically important to success – whether you use activated carbon scent-control clothing or not.
A Better Bag
Offering a generous 8,190 cubic-inches of storage space, the ScentLok OZChamber 8K Storage Bag is available in black (actually a distinctive digital gray/black pattern), as well as a choice of three popular camo patterns. The fabric is heavy 600D nylon with a DWR treatment to shed external moisture. It is lined with a PVC backing inside for easy care. The bag comes with a carbon adsorbing pad that fits into an interior mesh pocket to trap odors from your gear and the air inside the bag, and is also pre-plumbed with an OZInject™ internal piping system to distribute odor-destroying ozone throughout the interior.
A ScentLok OZ500 ozone generator comes bundled with the OZChamber 8K Combo Pack. This advanced ozone generator is specifically designed to emit a powerful stream of ozone molecules that seek out and destroy virtually all types of odors and bacteria in their path. When ozone comes in contact with these contaminants, their chemical structure is changed to a compound that is no longer recognizable as an offensive odor. As ozone continues to attack these compounds, the odor is destroyed through oxidation and the ozone reverts back to oxygen after it is used. ScentLokCycleClean™ technology allows the powerful OZ500 to regulate output by alternating between active and resting phases for maximum efficiency and longer product life.
Whether you need to restore or maintain the odor-adsorbing capacity of your activated carbon scent-control apparel, or deodorize your regular hunting clothing or accessories, the new ScentLok OZChamber 8K Storage Bag is the best and most comprehensive odor-destroying storage solution available today.
MSRP $99.99 (black), $119.99 (camo)?
ScentLok OZ500 Large Room Deodorizer
ScentLok OZChamber 8K & OZ500 Combo Pack
MSRP $199.99 (black), $219.99 (camo)
Industry-leading ScentLok hunting garments are constantly adsorbing odors and contaminants from the air surrounding them. Nothing keeps ScentLok clothing at maximum capacity like storing it in an OZChamber 8K Storage Bag equipped with OZ Active Odor-Destroying technology. Indeed, whatever brand of hunting clothing you wear or whatever accessories or gear you carry into the field, storing these items inside the new ScentLok OZChamber 8K Storage Bag will ensure they are deodorized and ready to provide hunters with an advantage in the field.
The ScentLok OZChamber 8K Storage Bag and ScentLok OZChamber 8K/OZ500 Combo Pack are available now through established ScentLok dealers. Learn more at ScentLok.com.

CORNER BROOK, NL, CANADA, March 12, 2018 – The company that pioneered and now leads the world in women-only adventure travel will introduce its female guests this summer to a spiritually profound region of British Columbia accessed by kayak on a fully supported back country expedition.
Wild Women Expeditions’ Great Bear Rainforest Kayak Adventurescheduled July 10-17, 2018, is a professionally outfitted, eight-day wilderness immersion expressing what it truly means to be wild. Days are structured only by the slant of the sun’s rays and how far guests manage to glide their way down the crystalline waters of the Great Bear Rainforest. Here the only sounds for miles may be the call of a raven and the gentle splash of a paddle blade breaking the surface.
The per person rate of $2,995 CAD includes all activity and camping gear (kayaks, skirts, paddles, PFD’s, paddling jackets, dry bags and all safety gear, tents sleeping bags, liners, camp kitchen and bathroom kit); all meals; return flight from Port Hardy to Bella Bella; water taxi from Dallas Island to Bella Bella; and the services of two certified female kayak guides. See https://wildwomenexpeditions.
The setting is a temperate rainforest of 1,000-year-old Western red cedar and Sitka spruce that spans the Pacific Coast of British Columbia and part of the world’s largest remaining, pristine coastal temperate rainforest. Here, too, are the traditional (since 7190 BCE) territories of the Heiltsuk First Nation. The forest teems with life, including the “spirit (Kermode) bear,” a white (thanks to a recessive gene) relative of the American black bear that also resides here, along with cougars and wolves. In the surrounding water are flitting dolphins and the blowing mists of humpback whales.
On this nomadic tour, guests cast their tents nightly on a new shore on beaches dotted with pebbles and shells. Weather, tide and sea conditions determine the itinerary on any given day in a maze of islands and channels waiting to be explored after guests fly from Port McNeill (a former logging camp on the North Island region of Vancouver Island) to Bella Bella, the main Heiltsuk community and once home of the Hudson Bay Company that engaged in the fur trade with this First Nations people.
“Our adventure in the Great Bear Rainforest celebrates the spirit of the international campaign to bring attention to this endangered coastline and its iconic wildlife. If we want to see precious places like this protected, we need to go there and enjoy them and show the world their tremendous value,” said Jennifer Haddow, Wild Women Expeditions’ owner and guiding director. “We support the end to the trophy bear hunt and making sure that threatened species such as sea wolves are targeted in a positive way by tourism.”
This kayak odyssey is one of nine women-only itineraries that Wild Women Expeditionshosts in British Columbia. All rates are quoted in Canadian Dollars.
Additional sea kayak programs are offered worldwide. For a full list please see: https://wildwomenexpeditions.
Wild Women Expeditions is founded on the beliefs that:
Women carry their accommodations (tents) in their kayaks, as well as food and personal belongings, into remote wilderness where come night, a campfire and the stars overhead provide the only light. Even though the company now hosts guests all over the world, it retains a national focus with more trips and more women-only, backcountry camping adventures in Canada and across the globe than any other company in the world.

Nampa, Idaho (March 2018) – Copper Basin™, LLC, manufacturers of innovative, lightweight bags and packs for hunting, hiking and low-profile firearm storage, proudly announces the third generation of its Takedown Firearm Backpack is now available and shipping directly from its website. With the ability to transport discreetly a variety of over 30 models of Takedown-style or compact firearms, this pack provides a stylish, non-descript alternative for transporting firearms while remaining purpose-built and ready for rapid deployment.
The Takedown Firearm Backpack has a quick access top flap for rapid removal and deployment of firearm components. This flap is part of a complete fold open design for easy access to components and gear at the range or in the field. The backpack’s dimensions have been designed to accommodate a variety of firearms with installed optics and bipods, with newly added longer internal pocket lids to accommodate an even wider variety of firearms. This diverse backpack also makes a good carry option for spotting scopes and other related gear. Layers of structural foam obscure the rifle’s signature contours and the interior of the pack’s pockets have been lined with fleece to protect the firearm and reduce noise.
The low-profile backpack has been upgraded with new, more durable materials and unveiled in a customer requested gray and black color scheme. Upgraded features include a new, heavier weight nylon in place of the original polyester, as well as durable faux leather used on the external base and in the internal pocket bottoms. A “lash tag” has been added to the rear of the pack to add to a discreet, pedestrian appearance. In this same vein, the external branding patch has been designed as removeable to allow for a total non-descript appearance. This also allows the customer to personalize the backpack with alternate patches if he or she so desires. Larger Velcro patches have been added on the internal pockets to make for quicker closing of the lids, while the addition of a sliding cinch allows the user to tighten an external bungee around gear. All of these new features and the Takedown Firearm Backpack MSRP still remains $99.99.

Here’s a quick brief on the company…
Just returned and back in the saddle from the Anchorage Boat Show.
Happily this year we had two Xtaeros in the show; one our show boat, the other an XT24 hanging off a truck.
The crowd gave us abundantly good feed back, that our boat was MUCH better than even last years boat, and there was significantly more interest in the 28 and 32 versions of our boats. Joyfully and thanks to great show management there were more people on the boat than at any previous show.
This made for very good sales prospects and we are super happy to have been able to display for the third year in a row. Not bad for an epic start-up boot strapped company. The Great Alaskan Sportsmans Show is coming up next in Anchorage on April 5,6,7,8 and we intend to be there. With everyone’s help and cooperation we will be.
THE SKIFF!! Xtaero CORAX (named after Corvus Corax… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_raven
The design is typical of Xtaero and the skills we’ve developed over time. It’s a modified constant dead rise, there is no proper chine but it would be considered a hard chine. Dead rise is 12.5 degrees and the 90hp Suzuki pushes it to about 50mph.
The cleats are welded 10″ cleats and everything is welded. It’s a solid runner with a very large flat deck capable of full sheets of plywood and 12’+ lumber. The length from front bulkhead to aft bulkhead between the seat boxes is 17′.
The boat can be purchased as just straight aluminum or a ‘finished’ boat. If finished boat, it includes the following:
Anchor Pulpit, paint in and out, non-skid deck which will probably be diamond plate after this first one, battery, 18 gallon gas tank with quick connect to optional deck tanks, battery master (Blue Sea) LED navigation and anchor light, two Tempress folding seats, welded zinc bracket, stainless threaded plug and your choice of motors. The trailer is Karavan and we recommend the 90hp Suzuki or the Yamaha 60/40 jet.
Available now as factory direct with dealer opportunities.
Details maketh a great boat.
Also, we have begun construction on the next XT24DV Long Cabin and it’s available.
Xtaero Boats is Open For Business!!

Ontario Knife Company® (OKC®) introduces a new knife for 2018 designed by Robert Carter (son of longtime OKC designer Joe Pardue and grandson of legendary designer Mel Pardue) — the OKC Carter Trinity. The collaboration with Carter has produced some of the best-selling OKC knives in recent years, and with good reason – these knives are a perfect blend of form, function and durability. The Carter Trinity is the fruit of this partnership, and is sure to be as desirable as previous releases.
In contrast to other OKC Carter knives, the Trinity features titanium and G10 handle scales. Both materials are extremely strong relative to their weight, and have high corrosion resistance, even in saltwater environments. The two materials also create an attractive, contrasted handle while retaining the Carter line’s famous utility. The end result is an extremely durable knife that is easy to carry on your belt or in your pocket. The stainless steel blade of the Carter Trinity is a 6.86-inch (17.4cm) drop-point designed with a beveled top edge and a Rockwell hardness of 57-59. The blade snaps firmly open and is held by a Titanium lock spring. A Titanium belt clip holds the folded knife securely while being carried.
“OKC continues its collaboration with Robert Carter because our consumers demand the very best knives,” said Ken Trbovich, President and CEO of OKC. “The Carter Trinity is an extremely durable yet convenient to carry knife that fits firmly in your hand while in use, and lightly in your pocket while being carried. We are very proud to continue to work with Robert and feel the Carter Trinity is everything people would expect in an OKC knife.”
The OKC Carter Trinity is made in Taiwan and designed and distributed in the USA. The OKC Carter Trinity has an MSRP of $89.95.
