Tenzing TZ TR18 New for 2018

Set up fast and work birds in comfort with the TZ TR18 Turkey Recliner

Plano, IL (2018) – Plenty of hunters kill gobblers by setting up close to the roost, staying put and placing trust in their calling. But experienced turkey hunters know that the birds aren’t always this predictable, especially as the season progresses. Hunting pressure, breeding competition and the subtle nuances of any given morning can knock a tom out of his pattern faster than a load of copper-plated five-shot. So once mature toms show signs of henning-up or hanging-up, savvy turkey hunters turn to mobility to help fill their tags.

Running and gunning is a demanding technique, requiring a quarter-mile stalk, 100-yard dash or 50-yard belly crawl at any given moment. Combine this with turkey hunting’s gear-intensive nature, and you’ll need a specialized pack that’s fully up to task. That pack is Tenzing’s new TZ TR18 Turkey Recliner.

Tenzing makes the best high-tech hunter-friendly packs for every hunting situation, and their new TZ TR18 Turkey Recliner represents the ultimate in function and comfort for today’s turkey hunter.

Whether waiting out Ol’ Tom at his morning strutting zone or chasing him down along his milk route, the TZ TR18 is in a class by itself when it comes to keeping calls, shells, decoys and other critical gear secure, quiet and accessible. Most importantly, perhaps, it allows its wearer to sit motionless and in total comfort once the big show begins. And best of all, at just 5.25 pounds, it’s Tenzing’s lightest turkey hunting pack/chair ever.

Available in Realtree Edge or Mossy Oak Obsession, the new TZ TR18 Turkey Recliner combines a structured internal aluminum frame with two silent, spring-loaded legs and a dual-layer foam seat to quickly and quietly convert into a self-supported hunting chair. Hunters can sit comfortably amongst the thick stuff without a tree or log to lean against, while gear remains at the ready in a multitude of specialized pockets, including dedicated compartments for box calls, diaphragm calls, pot calls, strikers and shells. Of course, there’s even a special compartment for a phone. For even more utility, the TZ TR18 Turkey Recliner’s quick-detachable front pocket sections can be laid across the hunters lap to minimize movement while accessing calls or other items. When it’s time to make a move, the Turkey Recliner’s legs and seat stow in a flash as pack, gear and hunter move efficiently to the next set-up.
When the hunt is through, the TZ TR18 Turkey Recliner provides ample room to tote a tom inside its extra-large turkey compartment; its generous size and easy access opening accommodate even the heaviest of birds without causing damage to delicate feathers. A lightweight aluminum frame, channeled and air-cooled back pad and contoured fit dual waistband straps combine to make for a comfortable walk back to the truck.

Calling in a trophy gobbler requires skill, preparation and patience. But killing him requires more.

Tenzing’s new TZ TR18 Turkey Recliner helps make successful hunts happen. The most advanced turkey pack available, it’s the only one mobile hunters need to slip in, set up and work the birds to a successful outcome.
