How did you start the company?

 When hunting in low light conditions Karl Johnson, founder and CEO of Clearshot Archery had issues locating and seeing the peep.   The color blended into the surroundings making it more than difficult for him.  His father (who is 100% colorblind) also had the same issue, thus the focus on creating a high quality anodized aluminum peep that they both could use.  In doing so they made a peep that many now see the advantages of shooting.

What is your favorite hunting or fishing memory?

 I’m not sure its my favorite but its what got us started.  Having a shot at a 6×6 whitetail at 20 yards and both my dad and I not able to see our peeps to take a good safe shoot.  Watching him run off is something I’ll never forget.

Comments from Wisconsin Outdoor Pursuits:

 Having experienced peep sight issues myself, I understand the importance good reliable peep sight.  After looking over the Clearshot Archery website, I became intrigued with the 2 tone interchangeable peep.  We all know that we usually don’t have a lot of time when taking a shot on an animal in the wild.  The ability to pick up your sight and target faster may make a huge difference come this fall.  Even though you may not change your peep that often, the ease of choosing a different color or size will allow you to experiment and find the right combination that fits you!  With that being said, I plan on placing an order very soon for an interchangeable peep and can’t wait to start shooting with it!

How did you start the company and how long have you been in business?

 Photography, video and hunting has always been my passion.  As far as how the company started it really started as a personal project it just grew from there.  Tactacam has been in business for two years now. However I’ve been working on it for the last five years.

What are your most popular products?

The most popular product is definitely the Tactacam with Bow mount. Although the release of the new gun mount is picking up steam.

 What do you enjoy most about what you do?

 The most enjoyable thing is seeing peoples videos!

What is your favorite hunting or fishing memory?

My favorite memory isn’t really one to experience.  To me it’s about family and friends!! From taking my grandma and grandpa hunting (by the way they’re in their 90s.), to siting in a ground blind with my dad it’s all good!  Or meeting up with everyone after a long day of hunting and just hearing stories.  I guess it’s safe to say all of it!!!

Comments from Wisconsin Outdoor Pursuits:

 After capturing the kill shot of my 2014 public land archery buck on my trail camera video, the excitement of capturing more hunts on video intrigued me!  I set out to start doing some research on action cameras and came across Tactacam.  I am not at the point where I want to haul all kinds of camera equipment into the woods.  I wanted a camera that would be easy to use and not get in the way.  The Tactacam is just that and definitely is a camera made for hunters by hunters!  The stabilizer mount is absolutely great, no need to add any other pieces to the bow that might possibly get in your way!  The technology used in the Tactacam camera TrueVision lens truly makes it the best first-person camera on the market!  After talking with Ben and the crew at the Wisconsin Deer & Turkey Expo in Madison this spring, I picked up the bow mount Tactacam.  I look forward to hopefully sharing some great archery hunts with you this fall, but also plan on capturing some kayak and fly fishing videos to share with you as well!  Share your hunt!
