With the innovative products from Viking Solutions, it’s easy to load a big buck into the bed of your pickup without calling on hunting buddies for help.

The news about GSM Outdoors and its growth continues to . . . well, grow. We recently reported on the company’s acquisition of Boss Buck (game feeders, tower blinds and more), and a couple months prior published an article about GSM’s purchase of New Archery Products (broadheads, ground blinds and archery accessories). GSM is making the news again by recently acquiring Viking Solutions, a brand known for developing innovating products that make life easier in the field, at home or on the range.

Important to note: This most recent acquisition not only extends GSM’s hunting and shooting categories, but it also represents the company’s initial reach into the recreational angling market. In our opinion, the key word in that last sentence is “initial,” because we editors won’t be surprised to hear about GSM getting even more involved in the fishing or boating industry.

“Viking Solutions is a classic ‘Have a problem – let’s find a solution,’ outdoor brand,” said GSM VP Sales and Marketing Ben Smith. “With products ranging from load-lifters and cargo racks for trucks and ATVs, to easy-setup pistol and rifle targets, and extending to fishing rod racks for mobile anglers, the Viking Solutions brand covers many items that make life easier for sportsmen and helps them be more successful in the field.”
