Did you bag a sweet buck this fall with help from the proven and feature-packed HuntStand Hunting app? Team HuntStand wants to help celebrate your success, and there are still plenty of opportunities to score some cool hunt gear in the process.

To enter the HuntStand 2017 Big Buck ALERT contest, simply send us a few clear, high-res. digital photos (two to four) of your 2017 buck, along with a brief story of your hunt that explains how the HuntStand app played a part. Be sure to tell us if your buck was known to you or a newcomer, then describe the area where your stand sits, or where the encounter took place, as well as the fateful day’s wind and weather conditions, and of course, the blow-by-blow account of the exciting action as it unfolded. Include your full name, age, successful hunt date and state, weapon used, and also be sure to include your mailing address. Your e-mail subject line should read: Big Buck Alert! Send your photo(s) and requested info to: [email protected]

If your buck is a weekly winner you’ll score some sweet hunt gear: a Team HuntStand-approved Bino Harness X from ALPS OutdoorZ, a $49.99 value.

Bino-Harness-X1 900As one of the first product extensions to the popular and successful Extreme line from ALPS OutdoorZ, the Bino Harness X (shown above and below) is the ideal companion for your hunting optics. Designed to keep the pocket close to your chest and reduce the amount of movement you’ll feel in your optics, the Bino Harness X is constructed using extra-tough 1680D ballistic nylon fabric, with an easy-to-use one-handed opening mechanism for quick access. A handy lens cloth is included.

More smart details include a padded back panel for added comfort, an adjustable attaching harness to fit all body sizes, two handy lashing points for extra accessories, and a convenient side pocket for storing (and instant access to) your wind indicator. Total weight is 11 ounces.

Good luck out there this fall from all of us here at Team HuntStand, and let us know when (and how) you score!
