With a motto of “For Sportsmen, By Sportsman,” and one product Hunter Specialties was started by David and Carman Forbes. Their first product was the No-Mar Camo Gun & Bow Tape, the next item that took the industry by storm was the Camo-Compact that was introduced in 1984. In 1985 H.S. entered the turkey call market and again in 1988 H.S. designed a superior diaphragm frame assembly named Premium Flex.
Today, the H.S. turkey call lineup is well known as the H.S. Strut and Hunter’s Specialties is the world’s largest manufacturer of turkey calls. In 1998 Hunter’s Specialties purchased Wayne Carlson’s Calls, followed by Johnny Stewart Wildlife Calls in 1999, reaching a whole new market place. Hunter’s Specialties is constantly developing new products in other areas of the hunting industry, including scent and scent elimination.
Hunter’s Specialties continues to grow, creating innovative, high-quality products that serve the needs of hunters everywhere.
