    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: BADLANDS ANNOUNCES A BOLD NEW APPROACH TO CAMOUFLAGE TECHNOLOGY   West Jordan, UT – After undertaking the company’s biggest project to date three years ago, Badlands has announced that Approach Evasion Technology is ready to conceal hunters everywhere in 2016. Developed around a “Design, Test, Repeat” mentality, the Badlands Approach pattern evolved into the most versatile and adaptable camouflage to date.   Based on Badlands’ “Adaptive Coloration Technology,” the look and feel of the Approach pattern changes based on the wearer’s surroundings and lighting conditions. Heavily wooded forests shift Approach to a green and brown dominant pattern while sagebrush and rock bring out the lighter tones of the Approach pattern. Tested at both extreme distances and up close, Badlands Approach features an innovative breakup pattern to ensure visual confusion for whatever may be looking the wearer’s way, no matter the distance.   “The Approach project got its name for two reasons,” said Badlands General Manager Bill Crawley. “First, we truly did take a brand-new approach to looking at how and why camouflage is effective. Second, this pattern will really allow you to physically approach the game you pursue more effectively and get you closer than ever before.”    Available Spring/Summer 2016, Badlands Approach will first be offered on several Badlands packs and all-new apparel items. Pricing will vary. Additional information can be found at www.badlandsapproach.com. Now in its 20th year, Badlands continues to focus on exceptional quality, continuing innovation, unmatched performance and as always the only unconditional lifetime warranty in the industry.

                                                                    Sure-Shot Game Calls Upgrades the Yentzen One   Groves, TX - In 2014, when Sure-Shot Game Calls introduced the Yentzen ONE duck call, it followed on the heels of the World Champion Original Yentzen which, as the first ever double-reed system, revolutionized the duck call industry back in the 1950s. Now, the new and improved Yentzen ONE is taking it into the next generation.   The Sure-Shot Yentzen ONE has earned respect among duck hunters due to the tonal quality which makes the true sounds of waterfowl and the Yentzen ONE nearly undistinguishable. The new proprietary CNC machined body of the Yentzen ONE also features a Cerekote™ khaki-colored band giving it a sure grip. The newly patented Screw-Lock System makes it the loudest and strongest duck call on the market. The re-engineered Screw-Lock System protects the integrity of the call, eliminates the need for O-Rings, while also preventing air loss.   The Yentzen ONE features a Sure-Quack reed system which better controls the vibration within the call. This, combined with the Sure-Quack trough system provides better tonal qualities. Lastly, the Sure-Quack peg design allows the reed to pivot for better control. The new and improved Yentzen ONE has an MSRP of $155.98.   About Sure-Shot Game Calls: The 60+ year old company was founded by James "Cowboy" Fernandez and George Yentzen in Nederland, Texas in the early 1940s. After many prototypes, their first product, the 1950 patented Yentzen, became the very first double-reed duck call introduced to the marketplace. In 1959, Cowboy Fernandez entered several duck calling competitions and both he and the Yentzen Caller became world class champions. When the elderly Cowboy Fernandez backed off of production, Charlie Holder purchased the company in 2011. Today, Sure-Shot offers over two dozen game calls for waterfowl, predator, deer, and turkey.   For more information about Sure-Shot's complete line of game calls, visit their website at SureShotGameCalls.com

    ZEISS Wins Field & Stream’s “Best of the Best” Award with the new TERRA XB75 Crossbow Scope         NORTH CHESTERFIELD, VA., (September 21, 2015) - Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, the world's leading manufacturer of high performance sports optics, is pleased to announce they have been awarded Field & Stream’s “Best Of The Best” Award for the new TERRA XB75 Crossbow Scope.   “This is truly incredible,” stated Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics USA.  “Earning an optics award in the first year of the launch in the crossbow category is a major accomplishment.  Winning them consistently is further proof that ZEISS is the undisputed world leader in sports optics.  The Field & Stream optics test is one of the most respected in the industry and we are very honored and humbled by this tremendous achievement.” The winning products of the Field & Stream test are ultimately selected based on significance of the innovation, the quality of the design, and the value they bring to outdoorsmen.  Selection criteria vary, depending upon the category, but all of the winning products share one characteristic:  excellence in their field. Field & Stream’s optics tests were conducted by writer and optics guru, Tom McIntyre, author of “The Snow Leopard’s Tale” and 40 years of safari stories, "Augusts in Africa," to be published next year by Skyhorse Publishing.  “The TERRA XB75 combines the innovation and the reliability in the field that has come to be expected from Zeiss,” said McIntyre.” “Our staff spent the better part of the past year finding and testing the gear that will make readers’ time in the woods more productive and more fun,” says Slaton White, Deputy Editor of Field & Stream.  “The winning products not only withstood our tough testing, but they stood head and shoulders above the rest displaying absolute excellence in their field.  The “Best Of The Best” is the highest honor Field & Steam bestows on gear, and the winning products are the best of the year; worth your time, worth your money.” About the TERRA XB75 Crossbow Scope: The new XB75 2-7x32 offers crossbow enthusiasts the ability to determine aiming points from 20 - 75 yards in 2 ½ yard increments based on the chronographed speed of the bow.  The XB75 features all the benefits of German engineering and performance that you've come to expect from ZEISS, including uncompromising optical performance, all in a lightweight, extremely rugged, compact 1" design.  Lens features includes MC anti-reflective coatings to produce bright, high contrast images eliminating the need for an illuminated reticle.  Now you can hunt harder and longer by being able to stay on stand when the last bit of light is being squeezed out of the day. TERRA XB75 is built to handle the most rugged terrain and challenging conditions, and is backed by the Carl Zeiss U.S. Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty.
