Get the complete Pro-Tracker Recovery System. Everything you need to guarantee the recovery of your trophy.

The Pro-Tracker® Recovery System is a radio frequency system that is used in bowhunting. The radio transmitter rests in a carrier on the shaft of your arrow and deploys when the arrow penetrates the hide of the animal. The arrow continues to penetrate and the transmitter remains in the hide. The transmitter has a battery life of 18–20 hours and a range up to 2 miles. This means that if regular tracking methods are exhausted, the Pro-Tracker Recovery System can be used to locate your trophy.

Description

The Pro-Tracker Recovery System ensures the recovery of your fatally wounded game. Every ethical hunter is troubled by the thought of losing wounded game, the Pro-Tracker® System allows for recovery of wounded game through the use of the latest technology. A poor shot, weather conditions and other factors out of a hunter’s control can make tracking impossible. Depending on a blood trail can result in failure. Unlike a lighted nock, the Pro-Tracker® System tracks your game, not just your arrow by detaching from the arrow and into the hide of the animal. Using radio transmission, the transmitter allows you to pinpoint the location of your fatally wounded animal. Hunt with confidence, hunt with Pro-Tracker®.

  • (1) Radio Frequency Transmitter Alpha. Bright Green optimized for high visibility in low light conditions. High tensile strength steel hook with three barbs.
  • (2) 7075 Aluminum Carriers – Black Carnivore. Made from the 7075 aluminum alloy used in aerospace programs to resist high velocity impacts.

Product Questions

Question:

How does Pro-Tracker® work with your bow hunt?

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 it has 18-20 hours of battery life in order for you to find and recover your animal. Plenty of time to do what you need to do.

 

Question:

Is it a GPS/Bluetooth?

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. Bluetooth devices have a very limited range. A bluetooth device has a maximum range of 50 yards while with radio frequency we have a range of 2 miles. That is over 70 times the distance.

 

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.

You can use this archery recovery system to locate your game, never loose another animal during a hunt.

Solid System

Rated 5 out of 5
January 7, 2021

Pro-Tracker is a solid system. I needed a few tweaks to get it to work properly with my crossbow. The system requires one to secure the tracker to the arrow a bit more with the crossbow, due to the increased velocity, when compared to a compound bow. Gary was very helpful as I worked with him in the past. He and his company were quite supportive. I look forward to touching base with him this year at NRA convention/show in Nashville.

complete pass through… protracker worked perfectly. got to use this system on my bow kill this year..I’m terribly color blind and have lost recoverable animal in the past..I was considering giving up on bow hunting as i do not believe it is ethical to be hunting and know it will be extremely challenging to track an animal..this thing worked perfect..all of my doubts are gone..I had many questions about the operation of it and it limitations..the people there..Gary.. was extremely knowledgeable and patient.. I had many questions.. in the end it worked perfect..accurately hit..nice pass thru..transmitter stuck and started emitting on contact..battery operated fine…receiver worked perfect.. walked directly to the animal…the animal fled out of sight…which gave me a very bad feeling..in the past it’s about a 50/50 chance of me recovering it…I waited a half hour..flipped on the receiver and bingo got a reading…walked it right down.. perfect… really worked nice..thank you

Quickly recovered 6x6 with tracking system

Rated 5 out of 5
December 3, 2020

We heard about Pro-Tracker from a friend and we were excited to give it a try. I was fortunate enough to have a beautiful 6×6 come in. I was sure I made a good shot but we couldn’t find any blood right away. The Pro-Tracker not only led us in the direction of my bull— which was lying on top of the transmitter!— it also led us to some blood on the ground. It was fun watching the number go up on the receiver the closer we got to the bull. And there he was! Pro-Tracker led us right to him. I would highly recommend Pro-Tracker if you’re like me and never want to risk losing your game!

the deer I shot this year went into some really thick stuff and the reciever had no trouble picking up the signal and lead me right to the deer. And the customer service is the best I’ve ever seen

Second Deer THIS year!

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.

1st deer I harvested last month, using Pro-Tracker. It took about 10 minutes, he was laying on the transmitter. Everything broke away as designed, the arrow went through the body and the transmitter hooked into the hide as advertised.

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!

The alpha system flys/groups great even out to 50 yards! I was pleasently suprised due to the extra parts on the front of the arrow.

Actually that simple

Rated 5 out of 5

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.
