It isn’t easy finding hunting gifts for the hunter who has everything. Let us help.
With so much gear to choose from, it can be hard to find the perfect gift. Our goal is to make it just a bit easier by giving you a list of some of the hunting gifts we’d love to see under our tree.
For a midweight layer to accompany you from May all the way to September, check out the First Lite Kiln Hoody. Constructed of Merino-X, the First Kiln Hoody is a successor to the bestselling Chama Hoody according to the brand and is constructed to be more resistant to tears and bagging.
Made from 95% merino and 5% spandex, this baselayer can be worn over and under other layers and is made to interlock for higher insulation and moisture management. It features a quarter zip and hood for added insulation, or not.
Bow Spider: $36-90
Game changer — not a phrase we use lightly. The Bow Spider is just that. The ability to traverse any terrain hands-free means you can move more quickly and cover more ground without having to carry your bow manually. You can hop a fence, push dense timber out of the way, and glass for game without having to put your bow down or have it out of reach behind you.
It’s small. It’s simple. It just makes sense. This mounting system is a serious asset for the bowhunter who is trekking long distances but still wants to be able to access their bow at the drop of a hat. Plus, you can mount one to the wall at home and have a dedicated spot to hang your bow.
FORLOH proudly imported manufacturing techniques from Asia to its domestic factories and crammed a medley of tech into its ThermoNeutral gear. Its Activ-Dri Down-treated duck feathers claim to reduce water or sweat absorption by over 60%. That helps make the most of the 650-fill power.
The seams are welded to avoid compromising the water-resistant 40D nylon face fabric. Additionally, the brand’s Perf-Weld tech is designed to let moisture escape from inside but retain warmth against your body. Gender-specific silhouettes help it fit snugly to allow for a shell layer over it.
KUIU Attack Pant: $149
KUIU’s Attack Pant is now available in both men’s and women’s versions, and they’re an excellent addition to any hunting setup. They are breathable enough for early-season archery hunting and substantial enough to layer for late-season rifle. With four-way stretch and articulated knees, they move with you and don’t bunch, pull, or sag.
The Attack Pant has been a long-running favorite for men, and the newly available women’s line is proving to be just as favorable.
This trail cam records 720p HD video with sound at a resolution of 33 mp. With an 80-foot detection and infrared flash range and a trigger speed of less than one second, it is an option for consistently capturing reliable footage.
Auto-connect tech allows the cam to automatically connect to the strongest network in the area. And 16 gigs of built-in memory and unlimited cloud storage let you ditch the SD card. The improved battery life lets you get up to one year of run time before you need to swap out.
Cold hands suck. That stiff, hard-to-maneuver feeling that creeps into your fingers when they’re freezing is hard to overcome. This little rechargeable hand warmer is a lifesaver. I keep one in each pocket and plug them into my truck at the end of the hunt. The beauty of this little gadget is not having to continually buy more disposable hand warmers.
The real tip here: Don’t buy them one as a gift. Buy them two.
Warmth. A good night’s sleep can mean the difference between a successful day in the field and an unsuccessful one. Cold, restless nights wreck everyone. The Stone Glacier Chilkoot 0-Degree Sleeping Bag may not be a cheap purchase, but it’s worth every penny. Partnered with a high R-value sleeping pad, this bag will keep you warmer than most when the temps start to dip.
Filled with Grey Goose Down, the cozy factor will make you the favorite gift giver for at least the next few years.
Trail Camera Viewer: $15
Buy three of these. This Trail Camera Viewer has become one of our favorite little tech gadgets. Hunter or not, this is a good stocking stuffer for just about everyone. Every photographer needs one, regardless of the style of photography. It reads full-size and micro SD cards, connects directly to your phone (both iPhone and Android models), and requires no app.
Just open your photo folder, and you’re given the option to import. It’s a dream for anyone with a digital camera of any kind.
A good set of binoculars can mean the difference between finding game and not. The Maven C1 line offers performance at an affordable price point. They feature a well-balanced, lightweight polymer frame and extra low-dispersion (ED) glass for a crystal-clear view, according to the brand. They’re made to be durable and lightweight — and they hopefully point you to your next shot.
Comfort. The Klymaloft Sleeping Pad combines the comfort of sleeping at home with the portability of an inflatable sleeping pad. It has a foam topper that makes you forget you’re sleeping on the ground. It’s insulating to keep you warm, even on the coldest nights.
This might not be the best backcountry hunting gift, as it has a bit of bulk to it. But, for the nights back at a base camp, it’s a welcome addition to the ground, cot, or truck bed.
The Klymaloft is available in a few different sizes, meaning you can go as minimal as possible, or opt for room to snuggle back at camp.
Argali Serac: $210
Every hunter has their go-to knife. The Argali Serac has found its way into the front pocket and bino harness of so many hunters because it simply gets the job done. It is lightweight, holds an edge like nobody’s business, and maintains grip — even with wet hands. The open handle design allows you to have multiple points to grip the knife while cutting down weight.
It also comes with a lifetime warranty and free sharpening for as long as you own the knife. The included sheath can be mounted to a belt, hung from a lanyard, or used as a simple sleeve for a pocket or a bino harness.
Hanwag Alaska GTX Boots: $400
This boot was designed to do it all. Go from day trips to week-long adventures. The GORE-TEX lining keeps your feet safe and dry even in muddy and slushy conditions.
The high-top style is made with one-piece construction to provide optimal ankle protection and support. This is an option for those looking to combine comfort and protection.
Work Sharp Mk.2: $80
If you’re going to buy a good knife, it deserves to be kept sharp. The Work Sharp Mk.2 takes the guesswork out of sharpening your knives and tools, so even a beginner can clean up that edge.
It’s a great gift idea for hunters, anglers, or anyone who likes to consider themselves a semi-pro in the kitchen or the shop. It can sharpen pretty much any tool with an edge.
Luckily, we really put this one to the test. Check out the full review.
Ledlenser MH8: $75
Cut a hole in the darkness. That’s what the Lendlenser MH8 does. As 600 lumens of bright white light pump out of this thing, that light can be spread wide or focused tight and long, so you can feel confident in knowing where you’re going. With red, green, and blue settings, it is perfect for the hunter who wants to trudge out late or early without disturbing the wildlife.
The rechargeable battery can last up to 60 hours, depending on the settings used. This is the perfect hunting gift for someone serious about beating the day’s first light.
A good flannel is hard to find. There are plenty of companies making flannels, but no one does it quite like Pladra. These things are warm, soft, durable, and have some personality that others lack. Many of the shirts are offered with these little artistic touches.
The cuffs, collar, and back yoke have nature scenes to fit the personality of just about any hunter or angler. From elk bugling to dry flies, there’s a color and pattern sure to fit the hunter in your life.
Rugged enough to wear in the field and nice enough to wear to dinner, this is the flannel that anyone would be excited to find under the tree.
