A mini crossbow / pistol crossbow can be really fun to play around with. There are a lot of options available all with different FPS (feet per second), draw weight, sights etc.
There are several advantages that pistol crossbows have over regular sized crossbows such as increased maneuverability and faster movement. They are also significantly cheaper. Where full-sized crossbows can retail at $500-$1000, you can get a great pistol crossbow at $25-$50 (some as low as $10-$15 if you are ok with something that will not last very long). If you plan to hunt small game or gifting it to younger people, pistol crossbows are perfect! The best thing, however, is that you can shoot one-handed! Meaning that you can go double crossbows!
These weapons come in many different shapes, dimensions, cocking mechanisms and even more importantly, they will have different calibers and shooting speeds. We also give you crossbow reviews of the 5 finest pistol crossbows on the market presently. In this post I have gathered the top rated products available on Amazon with real user reviews, so you can make an informative decision on what product to buy.

There’s a lot more to the intricacies of fishing than this once you become ‘hooked’ on this enthralling pastime, but basically, if you can sit on the side of the water and hold a fishing pole, you can fish. It’s a hobby in which pretty much all the family from young children to senior citizens can become involved and love it!
Fishing leaves you at peace with yourself, but you can also have a lot of fun sharing your hobby with family and friends.
Freshwater fishing will take you to streams, rivers and lakes in search of the great variety of fish that there are – all of them a different challenge to fish. Take the kids along too – they’ll love it!
But first, don’t invite trouble. Check out your State’s fishing legislation and ensure that you have any licenses that are necessary. Any sporting goods mall/store will definitely guide you, telling you how to get it, where to get the necessary permits, and some of these stores will even provide them.
Take some time in the sporting goods mall/store to make sure you have the best and suitable fishing equipment. You don’t need anything flashy; certainly to begin with the basic fishing equipment will do. Keep your budget in mind at all times, but ask the advice of the staff in the specialist fishing department.
A cheap fishing rod and reel with a fishing line, weights, hooks, a bobber, net and fishing lures to land your fish are all you need, together with perhaps a pair of polarized sunglasses to make it easier to spot the fish in the water, especially difficult in sunny conditions.

1) The first thing is identifying a good camp site; information from the internet could be useful since reviews and even ratings can be found online and you can choose the best one from the user review. Maps also can be used to look for established camping sites on a place well known beforehand or by friends. It is advisable to get useful information about the intended camp site with regard to things like sanitation, terrain, whether groups of people can camp together or even whether pets are allowed.
2) Another good tent camping tip is to get a good tent. A good tent should have an inbuilt sheet underneath it that prevents insects and cold from getting in the tent. An additional ground sheet can be purchased. The tent should be spacious enough for the number of people using it and it should also have additional space for storage. A window is necessary for good ventilation in your camping tent.
Are you hitting the jungles anytime soon? Are you preparing for a hike or expedition that’s going to take more than a day? Well, human nature requires that we offload the pressures of life by taking a time off to stay in tune with what nature has to offer. Until you take a moment off the hassles and bustles of the city life, you won’t realize just how much you’ve been missing. In fact, doctors now say that this kind of break is very necessary if you want to stay healthy.
However, with every trip in the bush, there’s need to have good shelter at the end of the day. You’ll need to protect yourself from the hash weather conditions, roaming animals of the night, and perhaps, save yourself from the cold. Other than the comfort that a hiking tent can come with, it’s very necessary that you choose a tent that’s light in weight and easy to carry. We are talking of ease with which you can put it in a backpack and carry it without any difficulty.
Small tents can carry up to 2 people at a time. However, larger ones accommodate as many people, say 6, 8, 10 etc. In line with that, we’re reviewing the Coleman 6 Person Instant Tent, which has proved to bring convenience in whatever place you choose to hike at. This tent will save you from expensive hotel or lodge accommodation, and is as comfortable as sleeping in a hotel room.
Coleman 6 Person Instant Tent
For your next hiking or camping adventure, take a moment to consider what it would be like to get to camp, pop open your tent in under one minute, and have your tent ready to go for up to six people. Once your tent is put together we all know that we can then go about preparing food and relaxing from the day’s events.
The Coleman 6 Person Tent is one designed to be lightweight, easy to transport, and very easy to set up. Forget about losing parts or messing with fold up rods. The Coleman 6 person tent comes with everything already put together, so all you have to do is stretch it out, extend the poles, and lock it into place. It can be done in thirty seconds.
To know what this tent is capable of doing and what it cannot do, it’s only fair that we review its features. We definitely know that it’s going to make the ideal choice of tent you’ve always been looking for in your camping expeditions.
Features and Specifications:
It can only accommodate up to a maximum of 6 people, so if your group comprises of over 6 people, then it won’t be able to accommodate all of you, unless you look for a bigger tent, still by Coleman Instant Tent.
This tent is one of the easiest to assemble, why? Because poles come pre-attached to the tent, which ensures that you save time when setting it up. This also eliminates the risk of losing parts. It is as simple as unfolding the tent, spreading out the fabric, extending poles as needed, clicking and locking. That’s it!
It measures 10X9 foot to fit up to 6 individuals. The floorspace is just big enough to accommodate up to 2 queen air mattresses. It also has a 6-foot center height. In short, space is not a constraint inside this tent, as long as you are not more than 6. And because of the 6-foot height, it will accommodate just about any height irrespective of how tall or short one is.
And during rainy seasons, you will always stay dry and comfortable with the high-tech features of the Coleman 6 Person Instant Tent. It comes with a feature called WeatherTech system, with a series of features that work together to enhance your comfort during one of those bad days. When you’re dry and comfortable in the bush, you tend to sleep better till the next day. This is the only way to enjoy your hiking experience, isn’t it?
Lastly, we also loved the fact that this tent comes with a limited one-year warranty to cover you, just in case something goes wrong with your tent before that period elapses. However, it’s very rare for customers to experience such cases since Coleman tents are generally strong and durable. They have been proven to last as long as the manufacturer has stated.
On the inside of the tent, the dimensions on the floor are nine feet by ten feet, and the ceiling height in the middle of the tent is six feet. An amazing space which can fit two twin sized air mattresses, or even up to six people in sleeping bags and mats. The rods insert into the ground and the entire thing locks into place with ease.
The Weathertec technology and structure and design of the tent are created specifically for rainy conditions and this feature will keep you dry in windy and rainy situations. For those hot summer situations, the tent comes equipped with screens on the side to allow free air flow throughout the tent, and you will benefit from any breezes or wind on a hot summer day or night in the tent.
This six person tent is ideal for any type of camping situation where one man carries the tent, and others carry other important gear. When hiking or camping, this is an ideal tent for smaller groups of hikers to find comfort and shelter in cold or rainy situations. It also keeps pests and bugs from attacking you at night. It will keep other snakes and rodents out of your tent as well due to the well-designed zipper mechanism.
Feel comfortable and at ease in this wonderful tent for all camping and hiking, and outdoors fun. Everything is built in and attached already to the tent, so you don’t have to mess around with loose parts, and worry about losing any parts to the tent. It is all right there, ready to go, whenever you are ready to set it up.
Camping should be fun, and this tent makes it a lot easier to set up camp. Then you can have time for the most enjoyable aspects of camping, such as building a fire, enjoying a few drinks, eating, and socializing with your fellow campers. If you prefer to wait until right before you get ready to go to sleep to build your tent, then you have that option. You can simply snap it all together, lock it, and tie it down all in under one minute. Then you are ready to sleep in comfort.
Why the Coleman 6 Person Instant Tent is a good choice for camping
This is literally a home-away from home, so expect to have shelter that’s equivalent to the one you get at home. We also looked the interior of the tent, and it was just amazing.
The tent is weather-proof, thanks to the WeatherTech systems which consists of inter-working features that resist even the heaviest rain.
It has windows, strategically placed to let sufficient light inside the tent. The windows also lets you see what’s happening outside. It’s just a home that’s away from home. No need to worry.
It comes with a 1-year warranty which guarantees cost-free service when things go wrong. This is one of the longest warranties you can find on a tent.
It’s easy to set up because it comes with pre-attached poles, which also eliminates chances of losing important parts.
The tent is also very portable as far as hiking is concerned. It is for this purpose that it was manufactured–to walk around with. The material it is made of is also generally light in weight, which contributes to its potability as well.
Finally, the price is fair compared to other tents that accommodate the same number of people. This is very important for hikers who are on budget. Why go for an expensive model when Coleman tents offer the same comfort and style at a much cheaper rate? It beats logic, right?
From the look of things, it seems Coleman tents are one of the most-preferred tents among hikers across the world. This tent we are reviewing is the ideal tent for hikers, provided the group is not made of more than 6. The features look promising, and the capabilities are robust.
There’s enough evidence to state that this tent is the most preferred among people who go for camping expeditions. Currently (as of September 6, 2016), it has more than 1,123 reviews, with an average of 4.4 out of 5 stars. This is the highest ratings we’ve ever seen on a tent selling on Amazon. The majority of the reviews talk about the ease with which they could set the tent up, the comfort level, camping abilities and so forth.
”This tent was marketed as the only tent you could set up in just 60 seconds. It sounded ridiculous, but it was true. I was amazed…and it took only 5 minutes to pack it up.” (Source from Amazon customer reviews)
However, a few customers still expressed their disappointment, which is why the Coleman 6 Person Instant Tent couldn’t hit the 5 star mark. They said it was so easy, though not perfect. Others said is wasn’t as strong as they’d expected.
It might look like we’re overly promoting the Coleman Instant Tent 6 Person with only selfish motives. But the truth is, if the features stated above are anything to go by, then it’s very likely that the tent is above standard. We wouldn’t waste time writing such a long review on something that wasn’t true. Again we emphasize on giving genuine information concerning Coleman tents.
If you really love hiking and you’re always concerned with where and how you’re going to sleep, then Coleman Instant Tent6 Person is just for you. They come in a variety of sizes to accommodate just about any number of people(though the one we’re reviewing accommodates up to 6 people). Again the price is just fair compared to what you get in terms of features. It’s currently available on Amazon as new and used, so depending on what you can afford, you can always go for any one of the two.
Responsible hunting and game management, as well as wildlife conservation, are important aspects of any game hunting. But many find deer hunting to be the most rewarding. Here are some ideas and tips to make that hunting trip a success.
What makes a deer tick (and I don’t mean the biting kind either!)
Deer are known for being at their most active in the dusk and dawn hours, and often sleep during the middle of day and night. It makes sense since most predators are also less active during these times, giving the deer a chance to rest.
