If you think you’re a pretty good archery shooter, you may want to stroll out to the Carlisle Fairgrounds the weekend of Sept. 6-8. At that time, Cabela’s Hamburg, in conjunction with Carlisle Events and the National Wild Turkey Federation, is hosting the all new Carlisle Sports and Outdoor Nationals, a variety of bow shooting competitions.
Archery shooters can ply their skills at the NWTF sponsored competition using 3D and Rhinehart targets set at various distances. Additional options in a fun shoot include targets set at distances but archers are prohibited from using range finders to determine the yardages. There will be approximately $5,000 in prizes for the top shooters that come compliments of Cabela’s Hamburg.
Aside from the competition, the nationals will include family fun events, displays, industry guests, interactive exhibits for kids, demonstrations and an opportunity to test shoot Cabela’s new Regulator bow.
According to Harold Luther, Cabela’s Retail Manager, the new Regulator bow is a result of their partnership with BowTech, the popular bow maker. “This smooth and quiet shooting 32-inch axle-axle bow has an IBO rating of 325 fps and is adjustable from 50-70 pounds without the need of a bow press. The bows’ length and poundage adjustment make it the perfect bow for every situation be it in a tight spot in a treestand, on the target range, or if you need lower poundage later in the hunting season when temperatures begin to drop,” said Luther in a prepared press release.
The Regulator bow is a single cam bow (completely different for BowTech, whose compound bows are primarily dual cams) that comes as a package with Apex 3-pin sight, Hostage XL rest, Dead-Lock Lite Octane quiver, wrist sling, alloy peep, 5-inch stabilizer and string loop. It’s featured in Cabela’s fall catalog for $549.99, a lot of quality bow for the money.

NEW PURE FISHING LINE AND CRANKBAIT DEBUT
Pure Fishing, the makers of Berkley line and fishing products plus their Sebile line of crankbaits, have introduced two new products for anglers.
Their new Trilene Braid Professional Grade braided line was developed to withstand the impact and pounding of tournament level fishing.
According to B.A.S.S. Elite Series Angler, Brandon Palanuik, “The construction of this line creates a braided line that is the strongest I ever fished. I fish this line in heavy cover or in open water. Fishing in Florida I spool 50-pound Trilene Braid to pull big bass through the grass or rig up 20-pound on the Great Lakes for long casts and instant hooksets when fishing for smallmouth.”
“Trilene Braid is designed for medium-heavy tackle and has a quietness to it as it slips through the guides. This is due to the true roundness of the braid and its overall thin diameter. It’s available in 20-80 pound test,” said Kevin Jarnigan, Berkley media relation’s manager.
Seibel’s new Bull Crank floating bass plug, from renowned bait designer Patrick Seibel, has a wider swimming action with one internal free knocking bead, no rattles just a unique square bill to deflect off cover. It comes with Seibel’s exclusive 3D eye, black nickel hooks and an External weight system. According to Seibel, it can be used in fresh or saltwater.
