How to Camouflage an Ammo Box

It is hunting season again, and there is no worse feeling than finding that trophy winner and letting him slip through your fingers because he spotted you from afar.  Make sure that the camouflage you are wearing from head to toe is not for naught by camouflaging your field ammo can.


First thing you will need to do is obtain an ammo can.  Rural King recommends the all plastic Plano Molding Field Ammo Box 1312 or the Plano Extra Large Field Box 1812 to keep your precious ammo out of the elements.  SKU: 031801244   SKU: 031801666

Ammo Box

Next you will want to sand down you ammo box, making sure the surface is smooth of nicks and sanded down so that the spray paint will adhere well.  Make sure to wipe away any sand dust or any other dirt or particles that may be present.

Now you will want to purchase some natural colored spray paint, forest greens and browns work really well. SKU: 049213515  SKU: 049212671   SKU: 049212642

Brown Spray Paint     Green Spray Paint


Now that you have your spray paint, open the ammo can and lay it flat, if you are going to be working over a surface other than grass you will want to put down some type of covering, flattened cardboard boxes work very well.

Now shake the spray paint can and start spraying, keeping an even distance from the ammo can surface to get an even coating and avoid lingering in one spot too long.  Spray in a somewhat random pattern, you need a blotchy sort of final product without any recognizable pattern.

Give ample time for the paint to dry in a well ventilated area.

Fill your ammo can with whatever your ammo of choice is and Happy, Safe Hunting!


Bowfishing, The Best of Both Worlds

Fin Finder Bowfishing Package

So you call yourself a sportsman, huh?  Have you ever been bowfishing? Go ahead and put your compound in storage and pick up this recurve.

The Sand Shark was built-tough with laminated Maple/Purple Heart wood construction.  It features a heavy-duty sight, stabilizer and plunger bushings that are threaded and epoxied into the riser.

Let’s move on to the best part, the gear!  The Sand Shark is outfitted with all the top of the line find ’em and catch ’em gear: Light-Stryke Laser Sight, AMS Retriever Pro, Hydro-Glide Arrow Rest, Hydro-Shot Finger Savers, Fin-Finder String Silencers.

If you are new to bowfishing here are a few tips I have picked up:

  • Think about where the sun is before heading out on the lake or pond.  The worse the glare is, the harder it will be for you to see the fish.  You may want to consider getting a good pair of polarized sunglasses.
  • I prefer fishing at night.  The OMP Light Stryke Laser helps you aim and shoot with accuracy in the daytime or at night.  Spotlights can also be used in conjunction with the Light Stryke Laser.
  • When aiming at a fish, aim low…then a little lower.  The distance of the fish that you see at the surface is distorted through the water.  I usually go with aiming 6 inches – 1 foot below the fish as my ‘rule of thumb’ but you always need to factor in how deep the fish is to determine how much you need to compensate.  Bowfishing is a skill that you can continuously improve upon.

Spring is here and summer is on it’s way.  Now is the time to pick up your fully loaded Sand Shark Bowfishing bow.
