PROIS_home page banner Extreme 012016

 

We might be entering the coldest month of the year, but that doesn’t stop dedicated hunters everywhere from going outside and doing what they love. Unless, of course, they don’t have the right gear. Fortunately, that is not an issue when you have a closet full of Próis cold weather gear. Check out the company’s favorites for cold, wintery days afield.

You may think you know what happiness feels like, but try on the Próis Archtach down jacket and you will realize you were sorely mistaken. Perfect for the coldest of climates, this jacket is constructed of 800 fill gray goose down. It features an athletic and feminine cut with extra length down the backside to reduce back draft. In case pack space is limited to only a few gear necessities, this jacket is the perfect component as it packs down into its own pocket. What’s even better? The Archtach jacket is on sale for 20% off retail through the end of January at www.proishunting.com. It comes in sizes XS-XL and is available in the camo patterns Realtree® AP, Max 1, Mountain Mimicry, and Black.

In case one layer isn’t enough, check out the Xtreme Jacket and pants. This dynamic duo is considered the perfect combo for the coldest of cold days and will keep you snug as a bug in a rug. The ladies of Próis thought of it all when creating this outfit. Constructed of a polyester 8000/5000 waterproof, breathable fabric, these garments are soft and silent and sure to keep you warm and happy, even if Mother Nature has other plans. Insulated with 200 Gram 3M Thinsulate, and lined with 100% Nylon Tricot, this jacket/pant combo is the perfect layering piece and can be easily added and removed as the day goes on. Adding to the jacket’s incredible function is an innovative safety harness lead located at the base of the neck, allowing hunters to easily strap on and off a safety harness underneath the jacket. Both the jacket and pants come in sizes XS-XXL and are offered in camo patters Realtree® AP and Max 1.

PROIS WITHDRAWS FROM SHOT AND ATA, MAKES PLAN TO ATTEND MORE CONSUMER SHOWS

The Apparel Company Shifts Focus to Accommodate Growing Customer Base

ProisElkHighRes

The New Year is fast approaching and 2016 is full of exciting things to come for Próis®. In addition to a fresh new look and great new gear, the apparel company is taking its show schedule directly to consumers. A rapidly growing female hunting market brings increased sales and more demand for the women’s hunting gear we all know and love so much.

In order to accommodate new and existing customers, Próis plans on shifting their focus to consumer shows rather than trade shows. You can find them at the following events: RMEF Hunter and Outdoor Christmas Expo, Dallas Safari Club, Wild Sheep Foundation Convention, Safari Club International, Western Hunting and Conservation Expo, and the NRA National Convention. In addition, Próis will be present at most of the ladies functions connected to each event. They have opted to forego the ATA Trade Show and the SHOT Show in order to attend this new variety of consumer-based shows.

“Do not be misled, Próis is better than ever,” said Kirstie Pike, President/CEO of Próis Hunting and Field Apparel. “We look forward to doing what we do best: connecting with female hunters and shooters across the country. It is, after all, what sets us apart from all the rest!”

Próis was created for women, by women who refuse to settle for downsized men’s gear or upsized children’s gear. Each garment is created with the most technologically advanced fabrics available and a host of advanced features to provide comfort, silence and durability. The company’s out-of-the-box thinking has resulted in amazing designs for serious hunters that have taken the industry by storm and raised the bar for women’s outdoor apparel.

A Different Kind of Hunting Season

by Megan DeHaan

 

MeganDeHaanScoutingThis year has been very different in terms of hunting. Everyone has those years it seems that nothing really comes together. This year has been one of them for me, with hunting at least. Rifle season is coming to a close. It ends Sunday and today is Friday. Black Friday. The day I love most… To be outside…hunting. But today, like most days this year, I’m limited to a brief morning, and with any luck, an evening. But I don’t want to complain. I’ve probably still spent about 30 days out.

MeganDeHaanBow season (my favorite of all seasons) left me empty handed. But it wasn’t for lack of opportunity or persistence. I actually just got too picky. I had my eyes set on one buck. One tricky little bugger that had a pattern that kept me on my toes. I never could quite close in on him. I ended up having one shot at him opening day of rifle but it wasn’t ethical, so I didn’t take it. I never saw him again. He was gone. After chasing him for so long the desire to shoot anything else left me empty.

We don’t need the meat. Which brings another challenge. I don’t like shooting young bucks, I want them to grow up. Which in the end, is better on the population anyway. So it’s not like I’m just going to pull the trigger on anything. But that’s hard too, because some days, after you’re tired and your patience is testing you to the limit, you have to make that decision. Do I shoot anything? Or do I stick to solid and sound practices that I’ve grown over the years to respecMeganDeHaanHorsebackt? Hunting for me isn’t all about the kill. It’s a continual learning process. It evolves every day for me. It has become an escape from the day-to-day grind that rejuvenates every aspect of my life. These days, the opportunity at all to be all alone with nature is so important to me. I feel like it hits the reset button for my mind. Without it, the pressures of life bare down on me.

This year I’ve learned so much about myself. I’m excited about how far I’ve come in understanding and valuing every aspect of hunting. Much more than I used to. And as the season comes to a close I may not tag anything. But for once in my life, I’m okay with that. I made those choices, and no longer do I feel the pressure of tagging out. Trust me, I would still love to. But I view it in a different way now. With any luck everything will come together by nightfall on Sunday. But if it doesn’t, I’m still left with the choices I’ve made all season. Some I want to kick myself and others I can stand proud of. At the end of the day after all, hunting is hunting. If it were always easy, I probably wouldn’t want to do it in the first place.
