GSM Outdoors, a multi-brand manufacturer of hunting gear, announced Tuesday that the company has completed the acquisition of outdoor accessory and gear manufacturer Hunters Specialties.
The acquisition represents one of the largest mergers of brands in the hunting industry, the company said.
“For over 40 years, Hunters Specialties has been a mainstay in the hunting accessories category,” said GSM Outdoors President and CEO Eddie Castro. “Hunters Specialties has grown from being a manufacturer of camo tape and face paint to producing many of the ‘support essentials’ relied on by the modern hunter. Bringing Hunters Specialties into the GSM Outdoors family of brands is a big deal for us and for the hunting industry at large.”
Hunters Specialties has incorporated some of the biggest names in game calls into its portfolio, such as Johnny Stewart predator calls and Carlton’s Calls Elk calls. Other hallmark brands include Scent-A-Way scent management products, Buck Bomb attractant scents and Fish-A-Way odor elimination solutions.
“The acquisition of Hunters Specialties, with its problem-solving, broad-usage products, helps bridge many of our current hunting product categories,” said Ben Smith, GSM Outdoors VP of Sales and Marketing. “Whether you’re a dedicated predator hunter, whitetail hunter, turkey hunter, or a western big-game hunter, Hunters Specialties and its associated brands complement our current portfolio to give hunters of all persuasions one-stop accessory shopping within the GSM family of brands.”
