Deer hunting season is here and so are the top new sporting goods that out-doors men can't wait to get their hands on, take the new OPS Code Black Trail Camera for example. Poet says, "The special thing about this is, it will text message you every time you get a picture. What you do is when it takes a picture it sends you a text so you can see a deer right in front of your stand.. right now!"
And to help ensure your new trail camera is in the right place at the right time -- there's also a new Ground Mount Trail Camera Holder on store shelves this season. Poet says, "You don't have to have a tree... now you can put your trail camera anywhere you want.. If there's a deer trial going through the woods and you don't have that perfect tree to strap your camera to, you can spike this into the ground and you have a trail cam exactly where you want it!"
The tech-friendly sporting goods continue with the new S4 Gear Jack Knife Smartphone Bow Mount with allows you to capture video and impact shots.
