Ontario Knife Little Bird

Ontario Knife Company Ranger Series Little Bird knife combines compact design with incredible toughness. Just 4 inches total length with a sweeping-curve 1.75-inch blade that falls within most legal restrictions for blade length in an on-person carry knife. The razor-sharp 1095 steel black texture powder-coated blade slices through bone and hide without dulling, making it perfect for skinning or field dressing small or large game. Innovative design allows for a firm two-finger palmed grip, so no matter how wet or bloody it gets, the blade edge stays where you want it. And cleanup is a snap; the handle can be removed in seconds with an Allen wrench to wipe down all of the metal. Blaze orange glass-based fiber handle is easy to find in low light; custom-molded black Kydex® sheath and para-cord lanyard included. For more information, contact: Ontario Knife Co., Dept. FFG, 26 Empire St., P.O. Box 145, Franklinville, NY 14737; (800) 222-5233;

Winchester Varmint H E.22

Winchester Varmint HE™ .22 takes rimfire to a deadly new level of hunting performance, with a 37-grain plated HP leaving the muzzle at a blistering 1,435 feet a second, also optimized for maximum accuracy. The hollow point fragments into three forward segments with a solid rear core, a design that provides explosive impact plus penetration. In addition, Varmint HE .22 cartridges use non-corrosive priming and a clean-burning powder for surefire ignition. For more information, contact: Winchester Ammunition, Dept.

Wildlife Research Center Coyote Juice

Wildlife Research Center Coyote Juice™ is a strong, long-range scent that appeals to the animal’s territorial, curiosity, and most importantly, its hunting instincts. Coyotes commonly circle to approach calling sounds from downwind, just like when closing in on live prey. They use their amazing sense of smell to confirm the situation, and no one understands that comprehensive sense of smell better than Wildlife Research Center. Apply Coyote Juice liberally to wicks and place them nearby prior to calling. For remote setups, place “Juiced” wicks near the call or decoy. When the coyote starts to circle downwind, the long-range scent of Coyote Juice reinforces the call, and the coyote closes in for the kill. Suggested retail for 8-ounce Squeeze Bottle $12.99. Comes with a 100-percent money-back guarantee. For more information on the entire line of Wildlife Research Center scent and scent-elimination products, contact: Wildlife Research Center, Inc., Dept. FFG, 14485 Azurite St. NW, Ramsey, MN 55303-4859; (800) 873-5873;

The 1-7/8-inch barrel and eight-shot cylinder are constructed of stainless steel, and the cylinder is highly fluted to reduce weight. The frame is machined from an aerospace-grade aluminum forging. The fire control housing, molded from durable glass-filled nylon, utilizes Ruger’s patented friction-reducing cam to provide a smooth, non-stacking trigger pull.
