10 Last Minute Gifts for Hunters and Anglers


Christmas is just a day or two around the corner and hopefully your gifts are all wrapped and under the tree. If you are a last-minute shopper, like me, then you might be biting your nails trying to think of gifts for the outdoorsman or outdoorswoman in your life. These gifts may not arrive before the big unwrapping, but you can at least let your special person know you were thinking about them despite shipping conundrums. I hand picked these gifts based on their successful use and performance in the field for me over the past year.  

1. First Lite Kiln Zip Off Long John

No one likes being cold while in the field. These long johns performed excellent under pressure back in October when we were chasing antelope in Wyoming. You don’t even have to take off your boots when easily taking these off and putting them back on. This quick action helps when nature calls or when you want to take them off when the temps begin to warm up midday. >>> Shop Now >>>

2. Harvesting Nature Camo Dad Hat

Our very own camouflage hat is a great gift under $30. The hat is unstructured, durable, and very comfortable. The message of “Eat More Wild Game,” is a straight forward message to those want to show their wild food pride. Remember, dad hats aren’t just for dads! >>> Shop Now >>>

5. Traeger Scout Pellet Grill

We have been loving the ability for the Traeger Scout to go on the road with us. We have taken it truck camping, out on the boat, and even used it while making pit stops for tacos. Featuring a Digital Pro Controller with an added meat probe to easily monitor your cooks, the Scout may be small in size, but can grill with the best of them. >>> Shop Now >>>

6. Allen Company Game Bags and Switchback Knife

This dynamic duo will let your hunter properly breakdown and pack out their meat from the field. The game bags performed top notch for us this year and are washable for multiple uses. The knife combines the precision of replaceable surgical cutting blades and a rugged full-functioning knife. The design of this knife allows for and easy replacement of blades to ensure your always have a sharp blade for all your field dressing and game care needs. >>> Shop Bags >>>    >>> Shop Knives >>>

7. Yeti Hopper Flip 12 Soft Cooler

This cooler is a really great multipurpose piece of gear and is perfect for a day off the road or on the water. As with all Yeti coolers, it has extreme insulation which means your ice will stay super icy. One extra feature we like is that the cooler is leakproof which means liquids will not leak out of the cooler. The ability to keep liquid in also means that this cooler has the ability to keep liquid out. Boom! This cooler is water proof, durable, and light weight which is what we look for in a backcountry camera and electronics bag. >>> Shop Now >>>

I use OnX Hunt App on a daily basis whether I am on the water or in the field. It outlines public and private land boundaries while also acting a gps for offline use on your cellphone.
