The little things that build traffic in a store.

Field & Stream Online Editors

Retailers are well aware that accessories are the cornerstone for building traffic. As you might expect, finding accessories at the 2005 SHOT Show is an easy task; finding the newest and most interesting products may not be as easy-unless you know where to look. SHOT Daily helps you navigate the aisles profitably.

ARC Products
Made from indestructible polyethylene plastic, this compact, rollup sled helps take the misery out of dragging a deer out of the woods.

The plastic bottom helps keep deer free of dirt and debris, and the entire package weighs less than four pounds, with carrying bag. SRP: $34.95. Booth #8667. (866-207-5993; www.deadsled.net)

Final Approach
The Eliminator Goose Decoy is a full-bodied decoy made from heavy-duty polyethylene and molded to achieve anatomically lifelike body styles. Highly detailed, durable, nonglare paint schemes provide an ultra-realistic look. All heads are flocked for realism.

The quick-attach leg-base system securely fastens to the decoy body with no moving parts, eliminating failure in the field. The weighted keel base lowers the center of gravity, preventing the decoy from tipping over in high winds or on uneven surfaces. Packed in groups of four with Lookers, Active, or Feeders.
