Dark Energy makes innovative, destruction-tested products for the modern hunter. These products are field-tested by Special Forces and are specially designed for the demands of hunting.

The power of Poseidon is packed between two ultra-durable hybrid polymer armor casings. These armored sections are custom designed for maximum durability and minimal size and weight. Heavy-duty internal and external shock absorbers are built into Poseidon, giving it the ability to take serious bumps and drops with ease. And with a Military Grade Standard of MIL-STD 810G and a six-foot drop rating, Poseidon’s shockproof ability gives adventurers the freedom to go further than ever.

Tech lovers, Hunters and adventurers alike have caught the vision of the Poseidon, inspired by the Dark Energy call to “Charge Adventure.”

On this episode of Gritty Bowmen we talk about the perception of Hunters on Social Media and the Bowmar / Under Armour debacle.

Was Under Armour wrong? Do hunters have a  responsibility to present hunting in a way that satisfies the wider public? Sometimes we hunters naively wield the "hunting is legal" shield and turn our backs on the non-hunting public.  The problem is, when the non-hunting public sees a hunt they perceive as heinous and cruel, the public simply votes to make th activity illegal.  And then… "legal" is gone. "Legal" does not protect hunting. Perception matters. #WhyYouHuntMatters #percievedShallowMotivesArentGoodEnough #PerceptionIsReality Aron Snyder and I discuss these issues in today's podcast.
