How did you start the company?

I have been hunting for nearly 40 years & sat in a tree a many a day !! I have just like a lot of other hunters dropped things while in a tree stand.  We started the business in May 2014 after getting a US Patent for my invention.  The Huntin Hook is a nickel plated barbless weighted hook painted safety yellow so you can see when dropped to the ground. It’s US patented design is to topple over on your item.  It comes with 25 ft of microcord with a breaking point of 80 lbs.  Also, a carabineer to secure to stand and a lightweight polyethylene foam impervious to rot, mildew and bacteria to roll the microcord on.  It’s a small light weight hunting tool that fits in any pack!  My wife runs the company Jakes Huntin Hook LLC, our son helps in making, painting, melting the lead, packaging and shipping . We are a small family owned business and are proud to say that we are made In the USA!!

As the temperatures warm and the snow melts, I am starting to think more and more about open water fishing!  I like ice fishing, but that is only a few months out of the year.  For a lot of people, summertime fishing means grabbing your lawn chair heading to your favorite spot and casting from shore.  Although if you like to fish, I am sure one time or another you have thought about buying a boat to get away from shore.  Believe me, I have and even tried to do the whole restoration thing.  Well, that didn’t exactly work out!

We didn’t get much further than ripping everything out and decided to piece it out!  We made our money back and a little more but that was about it.  Still wanting to get away from shore, I looked into other relatively inexpensive ways of doing so.  The end result was a Craigslist trade for a fishing kayak!

SRB Field Rests

By Steve Wall

How did you start the company?

SRB Field Rests started in a muddy goose field in 2008. I needed a dry clean place to lay my gun besides on my old carpet and pillow. I finally found some forked branches and used them. While waiting for the geese I got to looking at the branches and thought maybe this would be a handy idea for a rest. When I got back that night I started drawing and came up with an idea for the rests. After searching for a molder to make some prototypes for 2 to 3 months I found one that would work for me. We got the molds and poured several heads then I found some PVC rods for the posts and glued them together to make the rests. These were very blocky and a little heavy. After a few shows and a trip to SHOT SHOW with a good friend, I decided there was enough interest to go to injection molding.  After about $30,000, I had a mold and some product to show. Then Packaging! I got a company that makes cardboard packaging to make a flat cardboard and had a design printed on it and had to tie the rests and sockets on that with twist ties. People kept telling me to get clamshell packaging so I went on the hunt again and had clamshells and the inserts made. That is where we are now, still working on getting them into the retail stores and to the people. We have built a great team of Pro Staff that have helped promote the rests but it is a brand new concept and people still do not realize what they can do for the average hunter. Keep yours weapons safe, clean and ready while hunting the fields, popup blinds, layout blinds, marshes, tree stands or even in the boat. I also received a patent on the rests in May of 2010.
