Gear & Gadgets: Be ready for turkey season with Federal HEAVYWEIGHT TSS, and much more – Outdoor News

Kill gobblers at longer distances than ever before with Federal Premium ® HEAVYWEIGHT ® TSS. The tungsten-alloy shot material’s 18 g/cc density is 56 percent more than lead, resulting in the highest pellet counts and the most energy at extreme range.

Its rear-braking FLITECONTROL FLEX ® wad performs flawlessly through ported and standard turkey chokes for consistent, deadly patterns.

Heavyweight TSS is now available in a new No. 7, .410 offering. Heavyweight TSS payload is manufactured with advanced buffering material, extremely high pellet counts, its roll crimp and clear card wad keeps buffering material in place, while full-length wads prevent direct contact of the extra-hard pellets and the bore.

The .410 loads do not feature FLITECONTROL FLEX wad and a portion of the sale proceeds are donated to the National Wild Turkey Federation.

New for 2024, Huk and Mossy Oak have teamed up to create a new collection of patterns, available in the widely popular Huk Pursuit Collection and a variety of accessories.

The Mossy Oak Stormwater pattern represents what every fisherman respects–stormy waters, choppy seas, swirling gray skies and charging swells. The Stormwater pattern, developed in collaboration with charter captains and deckhands, pays tribute to the power of Mother Nature while representing the hard-working, “hammer down and get it done no matter what” attitude found in those who make a living on the water.

Huk’s Pursuit collection is created from a soft, 50+ UPF-rated, lightweight, breathable fabric that is antimicrobial, stain-resistant and durable. The Pursuit Hoodie features mesh side panels for extra ventilation and a lightweight hood for additional sun protection. The Pursuit Collection is now available in Mossy Oak Stormwater colors Spindrift, Midnight, and Bonefish.

Select accessories are now available in the exclusive Stormwater pattern, including the Stormwater Gaiter in Bonefish with 30+ UPF sun protection, moisture transport, and breathable mesh at the front panel. The Stormwater Trucker Hat and the Mossy Oak Huk visor are available in the Bonefish and Stormwater Midnight patterns.

Between the countless big waves, big fish stories and big personalities, Huk and Mossy Oak have built a print and color palette every fisherman can proudly wear on and off the water. For more information, please visit


If you haven’t prepped your boat, it’s time to get your ride ready for great spring bites.

Some anglers may be looking at a recently-purchased boat wondering how best to rig it themselves, while others are talking with independent or marine dealership rigging staff and picking out the best rigging and power solutions.

Other anglers may be upgrading an older boat with new electronics for the year, staring down a maze of wires wondering just where to start…

Whether you plan to fish out of a new boat or a seasoned rig this spring, it’s critical today’s fishing electronics are rigged properly, have enough power, and are ready for hassle-free fishing. After all, nobody wants to be out on the water during a hot bite and end up messing around with amateur or problem-prone rigging—we just want our graphs and other electronics to work when we need them.

GRAPH POWER PRO is designed to work with all manufacturers of fresh- and saltwater marine electronics. GRAPH POWER PRO features marine-grade sheathed wire with multiple fused connections for your console and bow electronics.

It’s plug & play. Rigging that used to take hours now takes minutes. Connect-Ease uses the best marine-grade connections and heat-shrinkable crimped connections that are waterproof, reject RF interference, and stay connected on big water and waves. There is a 30 amp fuse at the battery and your choice of 3 or 5 amp fuses to use at the graph connections.
