2018 Holiday Gift Guide: Great Ideas Under $100

Game & Fish Magazines 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Anyone who has ever purchased a gift for their favorite hunter or angler knows how difficult that can be.

It’s true. We can be extremely picky about the gear we use.

Here’s a tip: If you really, really want to give someone a new deer rifle, baitcaster, or fishing electronics for Christmas, know exactly what the gift-getter wants. That might take away some of the holiday suspense, but you’ll know you got the right gift.

But if you’re into Christmas surprises and are looking for can’t-miss — and affordable — gift ideas, we have some suggestions for you.


These gifts for under $100 will be appreciated.

ONX HUNT ELITE MEMBERSHIP

“ONX”

There's nothing more frustrating than being out hunting in new terrain, looking down at your phone for a map, and getting nothing because you are out of cell range. One solution comes from onX, an app made for exploring. Before you go, you can create maps with the features you want, like wilderness areas, access points and satellite imagery, and then save the map to your phone. The app uses the GPS in your phone and then pinpoints your position over your saved map. It tracks you, no cell reception required, and lets you check out the area via topo maps, satellite imagery or any of the other 12 types of map layers you have downloaded. The app is free, but you'll want to add features. The Elite subscription will get you access to maps of all 50 states.

$99.99/year | Onxmaps.com

Yo-Zuri 3DB Series Knuckle Bait

Instead of a traditional blade at the end of the safety-pin wire, the latest offering from Yo-Zuri has a ball there, and as the name suggests it knuckleballs erratically as it comes through the water. It retains the general look, weedlessness and easy castability of traditional spinnerbaits, but with a totally different sound profile. There’s a very high chance your gift-getter will have something nobody else has.
