The DoubleCross cuts vertically and horizontally, regardless of the angle of impact, delivering better entrance and exit wound channels and increased blood trails. The trophy tip delivers bone-splitting penetration. MSRP is $39.99 for a 3 pack

5. Big and J Attractants Pigs-Dig-It
With the growing popularity of hog hunting across the United States, hunters are always looking for ways to get closer to these wild animals. That task can be made easier with Big and J’s Pigs-Dig-It Long Range granular attractant, specially made to attract hogs. If you hunt hogs you know they have an extremely keen sense of smell. A byproduct of Big and J’s proprietary refining process, this attractant takes advantage of the fact that hogs are attracted to pungent odors. This key ingredient delivers an old, stinky cheese smell that drives hogs wild! Pigs-Dig-It was designed as a pour-it-out and hunt-over-it attractant. Be sure to empty the contents onto the ground where it will get maximum air circulation so the strong aroma has an opportunity to do its thing. It comes in 5lb bags and has a MSRP of $10.99
