MAX­WELL’S MUST-HAVE GEAR —

Field and Stream - - THE CLOSER -

GOOD CALLS

I like a call that lets me grunt, snort-wheeze, and buck-roar. There are a bunch of them on the mar­ket, but the clas­sic Pri­mos Buck Roar is my fa­vorite. For rat­tling, I like a Pri­mos Big Buck Bag. Those pegs, when you grind on them, sound like the real thing, and when you do it just right, you’ll get a pop that’s like an antler tine. Some­times I’ll add or re­move pegs from the bag to get the per­fect sound. SCENT KILLER

An Ozon­ics unit is one of my most im­por­tant pieces of gear. It ab­so­lutely works. I just wish the fan were qui­eter.

POINTED STICK

I use an Eas­ton In­jex­ion ar­row with 55-grain ti­ta­nium in­serts and a 100-grain Rage Try­pan. It has a 2-inch cut and is a good broad­head. There are lots of good ones, though. I see guys get­ting on fo­rums and blam­ing a lost deer on the broad­head. But 99 per­cent of the time, it’s a bad hit or a poor shot an­gle— not the head.
