Hunting season has arrived again in Minnesota! Men and women all over the state are gearing up and rescheduling their agendas to spend a morning hunting for the big kill. If your hunting gear is a bit lacking this season, take a look at some of the beautiful yet highly functional products from Rustic River Gear:
Folding Dog Dish
Keep your favorite hunting companion energized with a beautiful and durable folding dog dish. Portable and compact, this dish is perfect for holding a snack or clean drink of water while out on the hunt. Choose from a small 5.5"w x 4"h dish, a Medium 6.5"w x 4"h dish, or a Large 8"w x 4"h dish.
Shotgun Shell Box Holder
For hunters that do not reclaim and reload their own shells, the Shotgun Shell Box Holder is a must-have bag. All you need to do is thread your belt through the back of the bag and shoot away. Use your own belt or pair it with Rustic River’s 1 1.2 inch side-release buckle webbing belt.
Rustic Skeet & Treasure Hunter
Popular among treasure hunters because of the bag’s side pockets, the Rustic Skeet and Treasure Hunter bag is a multi-purpose pouch. The center of the pouch is divided to store 50 shells and separate them from live shells and empty casings. As with the shotgun shell box holder, this bag can be adapted to your own belt, or you can check out our webbing belts.
Rustic Skeet & Sporting Pouch
The Rustic Skeet & Sporting Pouch is designed with the skeet shooter in mind. The top of the bag features a shell box holder, while the bottom bag holds over 75 empty casings. Featuring a bottom zipper for easy emptying.
Keep your Shotgun safe from the elements with the Rustic River Gear Shotgun Case. This waterproof case is filled with a sherpa lining and has a layer of closed cell foam--meaning it is a floating gun case. Equipped with two ‘D’ rings to attach a sling or carry strap, this case is as long-lasting as it is beautiful.
Lastly, what hunter would be complete without a case for their rifle. Our Rifle Cases feature all the same great features as our shotgun cases but are designed to fit a scoped rifle. Each case is waterproof, can float, is lined with sherpa, and comes equipped with ‘D’ rings for shoulder straps.
There are a ton more options to take along on the hunt this Fall. Check out our entire collection here. All bags, hunting gear, and accessories made by Rustic River Gear come with a lifetime warranty. So stock up on your favorite bag and enjoy the hunt with a beautiful waxed canvas bag from Rustic River Gear. Happy Hunting!
Waxed Canvas is tried and true at Rustic River Gear and here's why.
Today, wax is not rubbed onto canvas but instead is produced with the oil embedded into the canvas fibers, allowing the material to truly age gracefully. Creations using waxed canvas are endless raging from outdoor camping gear to luggage and bag material and even clothing and shoes.
History. Waxed cotton appeared in the mid-19th century from the sailing industry in Scotland. Early mariners applied fish oils and grease to waterproof their sailcloth. The result was efficient sails when dry and lighter sails when wet. Later waxed cotton was used for military applications. Since it was strong, comfortable and had the waterproofing capability, it was used for uniforms, tents and military duffles.
Quality and Durability. The length of time that the UK and the US suppliers have been in business is a testament of their quality product. Using their own proprietary formula and technology, they are able to make a strong and water resistant product. Waxed canvas and cottons are hard wearing, meaning they last a long time.
Beauty. Fully waxed canvas wears like leather; it will age beautifully. With a fully waxed canvas, there will be what I call a “cracking effect” that happens over use. This is due to the wax wearing in and it creates unique lines. Some people love this and some don’t. I’m kind of in the middle.
Here at Rustic River Gear we strive to create the best possible product that will last forever. Each of our products use high quality materials, solid brass hardware, and are inspected multiple times before they leave our facility to ensure quality. On our waxed canvas bags we use solid brass hardware and rivets, waterproof leather, and heavy duty cotton webbing. All of our zippers are sewn and top sewn for added strength, and raw edges on the inside are bound wherever possible to keep the bag free of fraying yarns from the waxed canvas, and the rivets we use are double capped rivets which eliminates any abrasive or sharp edges to ensure longevity of the end product.
