Time to order your favorite hunter or angler the one gift that will change their current or future season forever. There are so many products out there that you may be scratching your head. Luckily for you, I have put together this awesome gift guide. All of these products have been field tested and have changed the way we hunted, fished, foraged or cooked over the past year.

2. New West Knife Works Outfitter 4” Knife

I carried this knife on my hip this last antelope season in Wyoming and used it to gut, skin, and process my entire antelope. NW Knife works sends a bandaid in the box when it ships with a warning of how sharp this knife is. They aren’t joking. Out of the box, this knife held its edge throughout the whole process and was easily sharpened after I finished. If you want to learn more, check out our podcast with NW Knife Works founder, Corey MIlligan. Podcast: Episode 416, A Cut Above the Rest

7. Slumberjack Satellite Tarp

No one likes to get soaking wet or get sunburns. I constantly carry this tarp in my pack to create the perfect shelter to hide from the rain, sun, or to take midday glassing naps. It has multiple pitch options to create an extremely versatile shelter that sleeps two and weighs only 1 lb 10 oz. Hear more about this product in our Oregon Bear Hunting Podcast.

8. Anova Culinary Sous Vide Precision Cooker

I love sous vide. It’s a great way to cook tougher cuts for longer without drying out the meat. The result is a tender, juicy meal which satisfies your family and friends. Emily and Ryan swear by their Anova Sous Vide to help prepare anything from alligator to axis gear. Hear more about this device in our sous vide podcast episode.

9. Blaze Orange Stormy Kromer

I recently purchased this hat and absolutely love it! It kept my head warm while hunting late season elk in Wyoming and also could be worn on a hotter day in Easter Colorado. I chose to get the rancher hat because it had an extra ear flap and I don’t enjoy my ears getting cold. 


Price: $52.99

10. Work Sharp Knife Sharpener

A sharp knife in the field can save your life. A sharp knife in the kitchen can save your knuckles and cut down on processing time. I used this knife at the BHA Rendezvous this year and it helped me get an edge on the competition at the wild game cooking contest where we took third place. It has an adjustable sharpening guide to produce precise edge bevels from 15° to 30° which is great for many types of knives and tools.
