What happens if you put a Reconyx UltraFire over a dusting area? Might be boring but not this time! Adam did just that and we got a real dust-dance on camera. You’ve probably never seen such an epic dust-up!

Grunt Calls & Food Plots – Episode #293

We test out grunt calls and check out the Hotzone Fence in action in episode #293.

We’ve got footage that shows our Hot Zone fence in action. The fence is only 2 feet high yet it keeps the deer from hammering important portions of food plots when the beans are young! We have the Reconyx footage that shows how. Watch it here!

Ever test buck grunt calls? We grabbed a boxful of old and experimental calls and took them to the field. It’s all about getting your tools ready for the approaching deer season.
