Midland X-Talker T75VP3


I spend much of my time hunting with my Dad and although he is in good health, as he gets older I find it more important to make sure that while we are hunting we have a good and reliable way to communicate. I know that in a lot of circumstances people stay in contact with their hunting partners via cell phone but some of the places we hunt have cell service that is less than reliable, so we have always carry our 2-way radios. I would say that everyone has heard of Midland; they have been a leader in 2-way communications for years. This year at the SHOT Show I had the privilege of getting the run down on some of their new products. One product that really stood out to me was the Midland X-Talker T75VP3. The X-Talker handheld walkie talkie has up to a 38-mile range and features 36 Channels and 121 Privacy Codes, Channel Scan, and Midland’s signature Weather Scan technology. The X-Talker is the perfect size to fit in the palm of your hand or clip on your backpack strap, and is so extremely light weight, you won’t even know it’s there. Although deer season is a few months away we have tested them out a little this year while turkey hunting and they have performed flawlessly. If you want a reliable and great way to make sure you can keep in touch with your hunting party check out Midland’s X-Talker series of hand held 2-way radios at www.midlandusa.com

Living and hunting in the south we are always looking for ways to repel insects and prevent ourselves from contacting some of the horrible diseases they carry. I have used Deet for years but as most of us know it is not safe to get on the skin, so when I had the chance to try an all-natural alternative I jumped on it. It’s called BioShield™ and is powered by NeuroRX™. NeuroRX™ was developed by pharmacists with Prescription Strength results… and is a proprietary formula of Portland Outdoors™. NeuroRX™ works by attacking a neurotransmitter found only in insects. Neurotransmitters control the heart rate and metabolism. Fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and bed bugs produce a neurotransmitter called octopamine. NeuroRX™ blocks the octopamine, causing a complete shutdown of the central nervous system… killing insects nearly instantaneously. Octopamine is found only in insects. Humans and other mammals, birds and fish do not produce octopamine. Therefore, NeuroRX™ is safe to use around children and pets but is deadly to insects when used as directed. BioShield is a proprietary blend of all natural ingredients and therefore 100% safe to use on skin and clothing. BioShield has a pleasant citrus smell unlike most insect repellents. BioShield is safe to use on infants, children, pets, horses, cows, any mammal effected by insects. BioShield does not contain Deet. The pharmacists that developed BioShield do not recommend the use of DEET as a repellent for topical use due to concerns of toxicity. Certain naturally occurring substances have deterring effects on insects. When combined in specific concentrations utilizing our proprietary process; NeuroRx, the resultant all natural compound possesses powerful insect repellent properties and in some cases actually kills certain pests instantly. I have been using BioShield for almost a month now while turkey hunting and have been extremely pleased with its results. It has a fairly strong citrus smell so I’m not sure yet if it will be a good choice for deer hunting but I am sure going to try it and find out. BioSheild has a full line of repellents from small 4oz. bottles to easily fit in you pack all the way up to laundry detergents and also offer products for your pets and livestock.
