SHOT Show 2018: New Predator Hunting Gear

SHOT Show 2018: New Predator Hunting Gear

Predator hunters have nothing on whitetail hunters when it comes to gear available to them. Nevertheless, the list keeps growing for the predator crowd. For 2018, you may want to see if there's room in your backpack or gear room for some of these select innovations.

MAGPUL 700 RIFLE CHASSIS

Magpul needs no introduction when it comes to tactical gear and neither does the dependability of the Remington model 700 action. For 2018, Magpul has introduced what it considers the best possible "no limits" rifle chassis in the Pro 700 Rifle Chassis. It's built for short action model 700 actions.

The chassis is built on a bull billet aluminum skeleton wrapped in Magpul polymer that guards your rifle from all of the elements. Precision engineering gives you full adjustability in length of pull, comb high, butt pad height and a molded polymer grip with 5-degree forward edge sweep. Other details include an oversized trigger guard for gloves and adaptiveness for Magpul's innovative magazine system. You get all this and way more for $999.95.

PRIMOS DOUBLE BULL SURROUND VIEW


Every predator hunter isn't on a cross-country hunt. Some sit and wait like whitetail hunters, and for those, the Primos Double Bull SurroundView Blind in three models is a top-of-the-line choice. Unlike other ground blinds that only allow you to see out of a window or two, the SurroundView is constructed of innovative fabric that allows you to see out of every wall, but animals cannot see in. You truly have a full view of everything going on around you. It is indeed revolutionary for all hunting.

The blind is built in a hub-style fashion for quick deployment and easy takedown. It's rugged and has a limited lifetime warranty. Prices vary from $299.99 to $499.99 depending on the model.

FOXPRO PREDATOR MOUTH CALLS

Late in 2017, FOXPRO introduced a series of seven new mouth or diaphragm calls including a Coyote Combo pack with diaphragms for cottontail, coyote howling and coyote pup distress. Other separate models include cat, kitten, raccoon and the three separate listed above.

Why try a diaphragm? They keep your hands free and allow you versatility in volume, plus variances in tone. They also boost your volume capability to send a long-range message. Lastly, they are lightweight when you are taking a long hike and don't want to tote along a heavy electronic caller. Prices range for single calls at $12.95 or the combo pack for $24.95.

NIKON MONARCH 3000 STABILIZED RANGEFINDER

Ranging a predator at long range often requires a steady hand and a good rangefinder for a precise reading. Nikon's new Monarch 3000 Stabilized reduces viewfinder vibrations by approximately 80 percent. OLED reticle display can be set for automatic or five levels of brightness to allow readings in any environment. It includes a 6x monocular, multicoated optics, 18 mm eye relief and a wide 7.5 degree field of view.

Nikon's Hyper Read shoots measurements back to you in approximately .3 seconds. The rangefinder incorporates ID (incline/decline) technology to eliminate the angle out of your shooting equation. The Monarch 3000 Stabilized retails for $419.95.

LUCKY DUCK RIOT ELECTRONIC PREDATOR CALL

New for 2018, Lucky Duck introduces the Riot electronic predator call. With innovations incorporated from the entire Lucky Duck lineup, the Riot uses those elements to create a compact, go-anywhere unit. In addition to an electronic caller, the Riot also includes a motorized decoy that jiggles and swirls when activated.

The caller's remote operates from 300 feet away and energizes both the caller, and the decoy. Every call comes preloaded with 50 predator-attracting sounds with unit capacity for 2,000 sounds. All of this runs on 13 AA batteries. The best news is that the caller retails for $199.
