Customer Questions & Answers

Question:

How does Pro-Tracker Work with your bowhunt?

Answer:

 

The Pro-Tracker System consists of three components:

  •   • An 7075 Aluminum Carrier that screws into your arrow and holds the transmitter

  •   • A Transmitter (w/a barbed hook) attaches to the animal when it is hit with the arrow & emits a radio signal after it is ejected from the arrow.

  •   • A Receiver that tracks the transmitters radio signal once it attaches to the animal.

These three work together with your tracking skills to recover your animal faster after the shot.

Question:

How much weight does it add to my arrow?

Answer:

The 7075 Aluminum Carrier and Transmitter weigh 100 grains. It’s groundbreaking design screws into the shaft, keeping the majority of the mass in the center of the arrow at the front of the shaft. The added weight gives the arrow more kinetic energy to penetrate deeper into your animal. Its location also helps keep the arrow balanced and allows the arrow to rotate to keep your shot true to your target. When your bow is drawn the carrier raises the arrow about 2 mm to help compensate for the additional weight. The system comes with a practice dummy transmitter so you can make sure you’re pins are set correctly to be accurate with the system, you will not be disappointed accuracy of the system.

 

Question:

How does the Receiver work?

Answer:

The Receiver has a digital display that tells you how far away the transmitter is, what number transmitter you are following, the time of day, how long you have been tracking the animal and the battery life of the receiver.  You are able to program 6 different transmitter numbers into it, making it a system that can be shared by the whole family or with your hunting buddies. The display is easily read in the daytime and has a backlit display that can be turned on at night to track that last minute giant buck that emerges from the trees at dusk. Nothing more fun than tracking your animal in the pitch black woods!

 

Question:

How does the Transmitter connect to the Aluminum Carrier?

Answer:

The Pro-Tracker System uses a plastic Shear Pin system to connect the Transmitter & Aluminum Carrier together. The Transmitter stays secure in the Aluminum Carrier when the arrow is released and the Shear Pin connection is broken when the arrow impacts with your animal. It only takes the impact of hitting your target to break the shear pin connection.

 

Question:

Does Pro-Tracker work with crossbows?

Answer:

Yes it does. But the velocity at which crossbows shoot bolts creates a g-force that strains the shear pin connection. Therefore, if you are using Pro-Tracker with your crossbow, we give you a set of Crossbow Secure Bands that help hold the Transmitter in place. This way the transmitter stays connected until impacting your animal.

 

Question:

How is the transmitter powered and how long is the battery life?

Answer:

The Transmitter is rechargeable and it’s charger uses a USB cable for power just like your cell phone. While the Transmitter is connected to the carrier it uses no power until it is attached to the animal. Once it is attached to the animal you have 10-12 hours to find and recover your animal. Plenty of time to do what you need to do.

 

Question:

Is it a GPS?

Answer:

We decided to use Radio Frequencies in our Transmitters for a number of reasons. First is the varying terrain that hunters encounter in the wild sometimes does not lend itself to finding enough satellites to bounce the location off of for GPS. Second, the battery size needed to power a GPS system is too big to fit inside of our transmitter and weighs more than the one we use for our Radio Frequency Devices.

 

Question:

Why is the hook so big?

Answer:

It works. After thorough testing we have determined it is what is needed to hold up with the impact. It gives use the most accuracy with the most durability. Better big than losing a wounded animal.

Customer Reviews

By Chris Buckner, Wide Open Spaces

“The best thing about the Pro-Tracker Game Recovery System is that it is actually that simple. It doesn’t continue to get more complicated as you get deeper into the hunt. You just follow the strongest signal and it will lead you directly to your game.“

 

By Randy

“…I had to know if it works. So I went to my truck, forgot about the blood trail. I even came back in the wood in a different area. This thing took me right to my deer. I am a believer this thing really works… I will be using this thing for years to come.”

 

By Jim Sullivan

“Pro-Tracker makes so much sense turkey hunting! Its so easy to hit the bird too far forward and all you hit is breast meat. No blood trail makes it hard to track. Pro-Tracker solves all of this!”

 

By John Mauersberger

“I just got my second deer this year using your pro-tracker. I never would have found either of them if I didn’t have the pro-tracker. I told several friends about it. Two of them said they were going to definitely buy one.”

TRANSMITTERS & CARRIERS

Pro-Tracker Radio Frequency Transmitter Alpha

 

The Pro-Tracker® Transmitter is a rechargeable, lightweight, water resistant transmitter that disengages from the arrow upon impact; allowing for pass-throughs. The transmitter hooks into the animal’s hide and begins sending Radio Frequency (RF) signals every three seconds for the duration of the battery life (10-12 hours). You will need the Pro-Tracker® Receiver to read and track the signal.

ADD TO CART

 

Pro-Tracker Ultra Lightweight Aerodynamic Aluminum Carrier

 

The Carrier is what screws into your arrow and holds the transmitter. It is aerodynamically designed to compensate for the weight and shape of the transmitter. Meaning minimal adjustments to your equipment for the same precision. Our Aluminum Carriers are made from a 7075 aluminum alloy which is typically used in aerospace programs. It is the strongest aluminum alloy in the market and made to resist high velocity impacts.

UNRIVALED PERFORMANCE

The Pro-Tracker® System has been field tested by top experts in the archery industry. With the Pro-Tracker® System you’ll see virtually no difference in the trajectory of your arrow because of the aerodynamic and lightweight design of the carriers and transmitters.

Tests have even shown the system does not impact the level of penetration the arrow has. The Pro-Tracker® System has the durability and precision to recover your trophy.

ETHICS

deer huntNot only does the Pro-Tracker® system not interfere with ethical shots, but numerous wounded loss studies have shown just how much it is needed in bowhunting. According to one study done by the Oklahoma Fish and Wildlife Agency, 50% of deer that were shot were never recovered.

There are many reasons why it could become nearly impossible to recover an animal. Sometimes game only bleed internally and don’t leave a blood trail, or flee into impossible terrain. Sometimes the weather takes a sudden turn.

Whatever the reason, the Pro-Tracker® System is designed to overcome these obstacles and recover the animal without detracting from the method in which you choose to hunt. Whether in a tree stand, ground blind, or stalking your favorite game, the Pro-Tracker® System is the one sure method for the ethical recovery of all wounded game.
