Holiday Gift Ideas for Hunters & Anglers

Holiday Gift Ideas for Hunters & Anglers


Tis the season to shop for that special outdoorsman in your life and get them something special this holiday season. Whether it's a Yeti cooler, new reel, or rangefinder, any one of these items is sure to please the sportsman on your Christmas list.


YETI Brick Bottle Opener

Here is a cool little gift from the trendy company that produces rugged stuff. The Brick is nearly a pound of aluminum that pops your top with authority. MSRP $49.99. But this is a limited-run product, so hit now if you want to order one. (Don't blame us if they're sold out!)

CamelBakCamelbak Chute

Sportsmen are always looking for durability. The Chute gives you that in a 20-ounce stainless steel vacuum-insulated container that sells for about $28. It also has cool CamelBak-stye technology that makes it quite user-friendly and easy to use and maintain. They seems to be field-tested well. For example, they are made to be leak proof even a high elevations. And trust us, a leaky water bottle in a snow cave at 12,000 feet can ruin your sleep. MRSP $28 |


Champion Workhorse

Here's a gift just for the fun it. Champion's Workhorse Electronic Trap holds 50 clays, can thrown them out 75 yards in three directions. The magazine is detachable, and clays reset in 2.5 seconds. It's very light and portable, and can fit in the bed of your F150 or the trunk of your Prius, however you roll. MSRP $400 |


Luminox Pointman Recon

This watch isn't designed to get your back to the dock or to your truck after a hunt, but it is a styling timepiece that is rugged and practical for, well, telling time. Yes, there are features for scuba diving and there is a 24-hour clock etchings on the face as well, but this is a straightforward instrument that will serve you on any trek into the backcountry or night out with the wife. It does have a carbon-reinforced case, is waterproof to 200 meters and has night-vision tubes. $450 |


Nikon Arrow ID 7000

If you have a bowhunter on you gift list, check out this new laser range finder from Nikon. It has two features that we think any hunter would love: vibration reduction and what Nikon calls Distance Priority Mode. The vibration reduction is excellent because who doesn't get the shakes when you're ranging a big buck? And the Distance Priority lets you set the ranging for the closest target or the farthest. You could see how that could come in handy when you're ranging in brush or grass. Eight- to 1,000-yard ranging. MSRP $399.95 |


Realtree EZ Saw

This is a compact, light saw perfect for clearing lanes or just getting a branch out of your way in a tree stand. We like that it's green, and won't stand out to game, but it's bright enough that if you drop it, you'll find it. The saw is 7 inches long and has two locking points, which makes it more versatile. MSRP $18.99 |


Fishpond Roll Top Dry Bag

We love dry bags, and especially those that have sections so we can keep our sandwiches away from our tackle, and cell phones away from our car keys. This nylon bag has compartments that you can customize for your gear, plus a molded bottom and clear pockets. MSRP $189 |


YETI Hopper Flip

YETI is known for building coolers that are durable and functional, and the Hopper Flip is the brand's take on the ultimate soft-sided cooler. The wide mouth makes it easy to reach food and drinks inside, and the ColdCell insulation keeps your items cold for extended periods of time. The HydroLok zipper eliminates leakage, and the DryHide exterior is puncture proof, making this cooler perfect for any outdoor adventure. In addition, the HitchPoint grid makes this cooler compatible with the MOLLE Bottle Opener, MOLLE Zinger and the SideKick gear case that is perfect for holding your wallet, keys, or other items. Retail $279.99 |
