2013 Readers' Choice Hunting Awards

When you want to find out what kind of deer-hunting gear to buy for the upcoming season, you ask the people who know. Our readers are hardcore deer hunters who take a lot of deer and have a lot of experience behind rifles, shotguns, bows and crossbows.

So we asked them, "What's the best new deer gear?" We asked manufacturers to nominate their new products; that is, gear that has been in the retail market for less than three years. We set up an online survey and invited magazine readers and our web-site surfers to comment on their favorite gear in 18 categories, from guns and bullets to optics and trail cams.

More than 2,800 responded! Many left comments and uploaded photos. We thank you all for your opinion.

Without further ado, here are the results of our 2013 hunting Readers' Choice Awards.
