It’s that time of year again and the shooting range is calling your name. Whether you prefer 3-d archery or the sporting clay course, Próis has got you covered. The women’s only hunting apparel company offers some of the most technologically advanced hunting and shooting garments in the industry. Take a closer look at staff favorites for a day at the range.

The moment you don the Artemis Competitive shooting shirt, you will look and feel like a champion. This shirt is perfectly breathable and great for summer days spent busting clays or drilling bullseyes. Made with moisture wicking poly/spandex fabric, you need not worry about overheating in your gear. With a sleek design, not only will you shoot great, you will look and feel great also. Unlike most in its category, the Artemis comes with a lumbar pocket for stowing extra gear. The Artemis shirt is available in black and white or red and white and comes in sizes XS to XL.

Combine the Artemis shirt with a pair of pants that match its sleek design. Made with 94% nylon and 6% spandex, the Adventure pants are the perfect candidate for any spring or summer activity in the outdoors. Extremely lightweight and breathable fabric makes these pants a must have for range days when temperatures are less than ideal. With ample room through the rear, hips, and thighs, the Adventure pants allow for plenty of movement, making any strenuous activity a breeze. Pant sizes range from XS to XXL and come in colors Stone and Olive.

A functional shooting vest is a necessity on the range. Próis has constructed one of the only women’s specific shooting vests on the market today. The Competitor Shooter’s Vest is made with all of the functions you need and a fit you will love. A feminine cut reduces bulk, ensuring you look good and shoot even better. Bilateral shoulder padding accommodates left and right-handed shooters and internal pockets accommodate gel packs. With two front expandable cargo pockets and a rear mesh pouch, this vest offers plenty of room for shells, hearing protection, and glasses. What’s even more, should you decide you don’t need the entire vest, it unzips at the waist to convert to a shooting apron. The Competitor Shooter’s vest comes in colors Black and Khaki and sizes XS to XL.

Turkey Hunting Gear List

It’s no secret hunters have lot’s of gadgets. It’s often very overwhelming preparing for a hunt and trying to decide what to bring. Each hunt, whether it be for turkey, deer, elk, or ducks, requires a slightly different set of gear. With that said, we put together a turkey hunting gear list, which will hopefully make organizing a bit easier when you prepare for your turkey hunt.

Decoy(s)

TarraStoddardDecoy (1)This is a rather large item, therefore it shouldn’t be a tough one to remember. Although, there have been plenty of instances where an obvious item like a decoy gets overlooked at the house before heading out. Unless you are planning a spot and stalk mission, this is a very important piece of equipment when going turkey hunting. If you don’t prefer to load your truck the night before, set all your equipment by the front door. This will ensure you don’t forget it.

Range Finders

DSC_0024Especially if you prefer to hunt with a bow, range finders are something you really can’t do without. A good pair of rangefinding binoculars, such as the Swarovski EL Rangefinding Binoculars, will cut down on the weight of your pack and take up less room than having to carry both optics.

 

Multi-ToolScreen Shot 2016-04-27 at 2.57.49 PM

A reliable Multitool should make the list no matter what type of hunt you are going on. You never know when you might need it! My personal favorite is the SOG Power Assist Multi-Tool, which can be found here.

Jacket

JeanEllenMistyLou

Mother Nature can be very unpredictable in the springtime. Don’t overlook the importance of a quality jacket in case the weather turns on you. The Prois Pro-Edition Jacket is made with compressed fabric and is the perfect addition to your day pack.

 

 

NancyProisCardTurkey Call

No matter what type of call you prefer, don’t leave home without it. Unless you’re a seasoned mouth caller, you’ll be in a serious bind if you get to the woods and realize you have no way of calling birds to your decoy!

 

 

 

Survival/First Aid Kit

A survival kit is commonly overlooked by hunters, but when done right, it won’t add a ton of weight to your pack. A Ziplock bag with essential survival and first aid gear will do just fine. Some items to include are:

Braided nylon rope
Matches
Fire Starter
Toilet paper
Whistle
Garbage Bags
Bright orange surveyor’s tape
Sterile pads
Sterile Gauze
Neosporin
Bandaids
Aspirin
First Aid Tape

This can be a lifesaver if you have a long walk to and from your truck. If you are in an area with reliable cell service, a smartphone will do just fine. For an affordable GPS, try the Garmin eTrex 10.

 

Day Pack

You will have a much Screen Shot 2016-04-27 at 2.37.06 PMeasier time keeping your gear organized if you have a reliable day pack. We recommend the Badlands Kali Day Pack, which is made specifically for women.

 

 

 

 

 

We hope this list helps you prepare for your upcoming turkey hunting endeavors. Good luck and happy hunting from all of us at Prois Hunting Apparel!

Talking Technical… The Ultra Backcountry Shirt

As with all Prois products, the Ultra Backcountry shirt is constructed of the most functional and breathable components to be sure that you get the most from your gear. It is made to be versatile, for all seasons and all weather conditions. It is silent and soft, yet sturdy enough to take a beating as you trek through the woods. Let’s discuss some of the key features:

Prois Tech Post

 

1. 100% Polyester Birdseye Fabric… All of our Ultra shirts wick moisture away from the skin, keeping you cool when it is hot and warm when it is cool. This fabric is also extremely silent and soft, which makes it possible for the hunter to move freely as she pleases without making any unwanted noise.

2. Neck zipper… Added to allow venting in warm weather. A zipper may seem like a minor detail, but we assure you it is not. Spring weather is unpredictable. Often times, it will be chilly in the morning and warm up by the end of the hunt. A zipper gives this shirt the extra versatility you need when the weatherman is wrong.

 

ProisBackcountryPockets

 

3. 3 compartment lumbar pocket system… You can never have too many pockets. Our signature lumbar pockets along the backside of the Ultra Backcountry shirt make it easy to drop everything and make a quick stalk. When the birds won’t come to you, you may have to go to them. Our lumbar pockets are perfect for stowing small gadgets such as calls, range finders, wind detectors, extra shotgun shells… You name it.

Ain’t Too Proud to Beg

by Nancy Rodriguez

The first day of spring turkey season is always magical. As I climb under the low tree branches in the dark, I know today will be a great day in the field. I am hunting after all! My decoys are set 20 yards out, ready for some action. I take my stand in the twilight. I quietly adjust myself in the tall, damp grass and slowly place twigs and branches around me for extra concealment. I lean against a mighty oak tree with my backpack next to me and shotgun across my lap. I have my arsenal of turkey calls ready to start their love songs.

As the curtain of darkness starts to rise, I am greeted with the beauty of spring. The new leaves on the trees are fluorescent green and dew sparkles across the blades of grass all around. Birds are singing back and forth, as a butterfly feeds on a lupine flower at my feet. Suspended from “my” oak tree hangs a shiny thread with an oak worm attached to it. It is gently swinging in the morning breeze. Is there anything better than this?

I start with the first song on my playlist…”Love Me Tender.” My slate call sounds great. I hope a gobbler recognizes this song and gobbles. Hmmm…Nothin! Again…Nothin!!! OK, I change the song. Mouth call in for the next song…”I’m Too Sexy”… Nothin!!! I switch between these two songs for a couple of hours and no action. Damn Birds!!!

As I quiet back down, my right bum cheek starts to go numb. My nose is running to who knows where, and I have a flock of not turkeys around me, but mosquitoes! Only my eyes are showing a small amount of flesh and of course a mosquito finds it. As I realize I’m getting nailed right on my eyebrow, my left bum cheek goes numb. I have an oak worm inching across my knee, and a spider crawling across the rim of my hat. I slowly flick off my buddies just as a gnat flies right into my eyeball. Direct hit! I rub most of him out except for what feels like his left wing. Serves him right! Where’s my turkey? Damn birds!!

Okay, time to bust out my go to song. I use this only when all else fails. As I break out my box call, I am really ready for some action! I shift on my now completely numb bum and try not to think about my itchy eyebrow. I sniff my runaway bogey nose, blink my eye with a floating gnat appendage in it, and notice there are oak worms dropping down on me like paratroopers! Time to get this show on the road!

Next song up…”Ain’t to Proud to Beg.” As I hit the chorus-GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE! Yeah baby!! I turn up the sound and hit it again…“I AIN”T TO PROUD TO BEG”. GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE! This time he’s closer. I aim my barrel in the direction of the gobble and with my adrenaline pumping, I wait. I watch the tall grass for any sign of movement, and pray I will see a glowing red head appear. He moves closer and closer, gobbling as he tries to find the hen singing a song no mother would approve of. I line up my fluorescent orange bead on the beautiful red head that magically appears and pull the trigger. Poor thing, he didn’t stand a chance.

A Prois chick playing “Ain’t to Proud to Beg” gets them every time!!!

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!”
