PICK IRISH SETTER® ICETREK BOOTS WITH THERMALBOOST FOR COLD WEATHER ACTIVITIES

SH03896IrishSetterIceTrek

Irish Setter IceTrek Boot #3896

RED WING, MN (December 2018) – When the mercury drops choose Irish Setter® IceTrek boots. These waterproof boots with 1600 grams of PrimaLoft® insulation come equipped with ThermalBoost™ – a revolutionary, multi-zone barrier system that delivers serious insulating protection against brutal cold and biting wind. This insulation technology is strategically built into specific zones that are prone to heat loss – the toe box, beneath the insole and within the footbed. ThermalBoost provides the equivalent warmth of 400 grams of additional insulation without the added bulk or weight for late season hunters, ice anglers, snowmobilers and others who won’t let the cold temps keep them inside.

To enhance warmth and comfort, IceTrek boots are built on the King Toe® last which provides extra space in the toe box – trapping warm air around the toes. The King Toe last also makes it easier to get into and out of these 12” boots.

IceTrek boots with RPM™ technology are surprisingly lightweight while offering durable performance. The Ice Claw RPM-LS outsole featuring RPM composite material and Ice Claw rubber pods provides superior traction on snow, ice and uneven terrain. Rubber lugs are added to key areas of the outsole to increase traction during heel strike and push off. An RPM midsole provides comfort underfoot while reducing boot weight. A rubber rand surrounds nearly the entire perimeter of the base of the upper for added abrasion resistance in ice and crusty snow conditions. Additional Armatec™ heel and toe protection guards against ground hazards. A gaiter clip is integrated into the design for additional snow protection.

A lightweight, breathable upper consisting of abrasion-resistant polyester includes a memory foam collar which forms to fit the ankle for comfortable stability in the boot shaft. The Cushin™ Comfort Tongue offers long-lasting comfort in the shin area. UltraDry™ waterproofing keep feet dry, while a ScentBan lining delivers scent control through a process that kills odor-causing bacteria. Select IceTrek styles have the unique BOA® lacing system to make it faster and easier to get in and out of lace-up boots, and to easily adjust or tighten the tension of the stainless-steel laces even when wearing gloves.

“Irish Setter IceTrek boots are built for extreme cold conditions,” explained Charley Bryant, Irish Setter Product Merchant. “Choose IceTrek boots to keep feet warm during winter hunts, ice fishing, snowmobiling or other activities that take you outside on brutally cold days.”

Men’s IceTrek Boots (sizes 8-12, 13, 14 in E widths):

  • Style #3896 is a 12″ boot with 1600 grams of PrimaLoft® insulation and ThermalBoost in Mossy Oak® Break-Up Country® camouflage, $229.99*
  • Style #3897 is a 12″ boot with 1600 grams of PrimaLoft® insulation and ThermalBoost, BOA closure in grey, $249.99*

Honoring the Memory of Legendary World Champion Duck Caller, Inventor and Founder of Sure-Shot

Groves, TX – (January 18, 2019) – Sure-Shot Game Calls is celebrating its 60th anniversary and honoring the life and memory of its founder James “Cowboy” Fernandez with a special limited-edition Cowboy Commemorative Series Duck Call. Each of these collectable award-winning Yentzen Classic double reed calls are engraved with Cowboy’s signature and the first 100 purchased will be packaged in a box personally autographed by the legend himself. The Cowboy Commemorative calls will be released to the public in Summer 2019. Calls will be available at retailers like Mack’s Prairie Wings, Rogers Sporting Goods and sureshotgamecalls.com.

Co-founder, inventor and world champion caller James “Cowboy” Fernandez passed away in August 2018 at age 86. Cowboy worked with George Yentzen to design and patent the first double reed duck call in 1950 and the triple reed in 1968. Cowboy was the first Texan and first double reed contestant to win the Worlds Duck Calling Championship in Stuttgart, Arkansas in 1959 using the double reed Yentzen Caller. And others followed, winning World Championships with this Yentzen Caller as well. He was well known for his calling prowess and won numerous regional and international competitions. Fernandez was inducted into the Legends of the Outdoors Hall of Fame in 2014.

“When Cowboy passed, we wanted to do something to honor him,” explained Charlie Holder, current owner of Sure-Shot Game Calls. “He was so proud of this company he co-founded 60 years ago. We thought this would be a fitting tribute to honor him and the call that he designed and helped him become a world champion.”

About Sure-Shot Game Calls:

The 60+year old company was founded by James “Cowboy” Fernandez and George Yentzen in Nederland, Texas in the early 1940s.

In 1959, Cowboy Fernandez entered several duck calling competitions and both he and the Yentzen Caller became world class champions. Charlie Holder purchased the company in 2011. Today, Sure-Shot offers over two dozen game calls for waterfowl, predator, deer and turkey.
