Waterfowl seasons have ended for most, yet spring continues to elude much of the country. Luckily for those still focused on waterfowling, this is the time of year when many companies announce new gear for next season. The March Gear Guide contains new products from manufacturers that will be available for the 2014-2015 waterfowl season. It's only six months away – start planning now.
Hardcore – Snow Goose Blind Bag
Hard Core Brands® has announced their new Snow Goose Blind Bag in time for mid-latitude hunters to put it to the test this year. The new bag is specifically designed for waterfowlers targeting snow geese, with added space for more shells and other spring-hunting essentials.

L.L. Bean – Primaloft Wool Sweater
While the wool sweater has been a mainstay of the waterfowler's closet for years, L.L. Bean has added technological advancements in moisture-wicking fabric to offer a versatile wool sweater for any situation. By adding Primaloft, a lighter-weight substitute to wool, L.L. Bean has decreased the garment's weight and improved its comfort.

The one-man chair blind features a spring-loaded top and allows a hunter to sit among vertical vegetation such as row crops.

Having a dependable lighting source while in the field at zero-dark-thirty is invaluable. Streamlight has come out with the trident LED headlamp, which features C4 LED technology and three ultra-bright LEDs for a wide range of lighting applications. The headlamp is light weight, comfortable, adjustable, and boasts perhaps the longest beam in the business.
