Gear Geeks

Redring USA

www.redringusa.com

The Redring shotgun sight is parallax-free and automatically adjusts to the brightness of the background. A guide in the reticle helps you decide if your target is within range and when to pull the trigger. It can be mounted quickly on most shotguns with a vent rib.

JAKES Country Pro Staffer Justin Nunes, 14, from Atascadero, Calif., says, "I like the Redring because it was faster to sight in on what you're shooting. If you see a bird, you can get on it super easy with it. And if you don't get [the shotgun] shouldered, you can still see your sights and hit it. I didn't find anything I didn't like about it. I would recommend it to my friends."

The Drummin' Thunder kit

www.hunterspec.com

The Drummin' Thunder Kit comes with the Loco Crow Call, a reed-type call built using engineered Green Mountain wood. It also comes with the Drummin' Thunder glass pan call with Mountain Camo striker and the Premium Flex E-Z Rasp three-reed diaphragm call.

JAKES Country Pro Staffer Hannah Simmons, 16, from Grovetown, Ga., says, "The Drummin' Thunder glass call is easy to use and produces a range of volumes, which makes you sound like an old or young hen. I did not like the quality of the striker. I would prefer a bell-shaped striker with this call. I'd recommend it to my friends."

Zink Calls

The Avian-X LCD Strutter features incredible detail and is 15 percent smaller than a real turkey, making it less likely to spook gobblers, in addition to being lightweight and easy to pack. The Avian-X LCD Strutter comes with a one-piece collapsible stake, carrying bag and Turkey Time DVD.

JAKES Country Pro Staffer Dennis Perea, 13, from Aiken, S.C., says, "The Avian X LCD Strutter was easy to inflate and ready in a short amount of time, making it useful for a quick setup. I disliked how loose the [supplied] tail fan was when secured in the plastic clip. However, when I clipped a real fan to the decoy, it was very secure and looked much better. I would recommend this decoy be used with a real fan."
