Federal Premium Gold Medal

federalpremium.com | $34-37


LiveTarget BaitBall Spinner Rig

“LiveTarget”

A truly unique bass lure, the BaitBall Spinner Rig relies on three Teaser bodies and a willow blade positioned above a larger, strategically placed Target body to mimic a cluster of fleeing baitfish, and guide striking bass to the hook. Three sizes and eight colors available.


livetargetlures.com | $12-$14

onX Hunt

“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.

Onxmaps.com | $29.99 – $99.99/year

FISH & GAME MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION

“GAF”

Money well-spent, we might say. For less than 10 bucks, you get expert hunting and fishing information for your state — from where the biggest bucks hang out to how to catch a lunker. That’s less than a convenience-store coffee per issue. Go two years and save more.


Game & Fish | $9/1 year; $15/2 years

Black Diamond Storm Headlamp

“Storm”

Considered to be the workhorse at a value in the Black Diamond lineup, this rugged headlamp will work for you when you’re trekking through the timber in the pre-dawn darkness en-route to your treestand. It produces 350 lumens pushing a max viewing distance out to 85 yards.The lighting profile offers improved peripheral lighting for close-range activities without zapping your retinas. This light also features the company’s Brightness Memory that allows the light to be turned on and off at the previously selected intensity.

Rheos Floating Shades

“Sunglasses”

These lightweight, comfortable, and durable shades also float! All Rheos sunglasses feature polarized UV protected and dual-sided anti-fog coating lense that automatically clear the lenses so you do not need to remove them and do it yourself. The Rheos lens also includes a speciality Hydrophobic coating, which acts like RainX for a windshield helping water to bead off the lens without settling in and covering your view.

rheos.com | $50

Outdoor Edge RazorLite EDC

“RazorLite”

Ideal for skinning, the Japanese 420J2 stainless razor-blades on this 3-inch model are heat-treated and hand-finished to be shaving-sharp. Rubberized TPR inserts and double-molded handle provides a non-slip grip.

OutdoorEdge.com | $34.95

CAMILLUS TRC 6.75" FOLDING KNIFE

“Camillus”

The Camillus TRC was designed to be both rugged and striking in design. It features a titanium bonded VG10 stainless steel blade and the handle is accented with carbon fiber scales for a truly ergonomic grip. The knife opens by use of either the dual thumb studs or the finger flipper. The fulcrum features dual ball bearings.  3.75” in the closed position, 6.75"overall.

Primos Bottleneck Grunt Call

“Camillus”

Primos’ Bottleneck Grunt Call produces surprisingly big sounds from a lightweight compact tube. Ideal for mid-range grunts, the Bottleneck’s soft flexible tapered design automatically creates all the back-pressure necessary to reproduce a wide range of ultra-realistic whitetail vocalizations.

primos.com | $19

G5 DeadMeat Broadheads

“Deadmeat”

DeadMeat broadheads are constructed entirely from steel, more than 300 percent stronger than similar aluminum broadheads. The steel stem is flexible, leading to fewer breaks. DeadMeat blades are .044-inch thick and held in place during flight by a SnapLock collar — you can literally hear a snap as you lock the blades in place. The two blades then rear-deploy upon impact to create a 1.5-inch cutting diameter. DeadMeat broadheads are available in 100 and 125 grains, and a Ballistically Matched Point is available for practice.

g5outdoors.com | $54.95 per 3

Rapala RipStop

“RipStop”

Rapala’s latest offerings literally stop on a dime, ceasing motion at the end of each pull thanks to a “secondary lip” on the tail end of the bait that allows them to rip and shimmy and then suddenly stop. It’s available in a wide range of Rapala’s popular baitfish imitating colors, all of which come with VMC black nickel fire wire trebles.

rapala.com | $8.99

Caldwell E-Max LowPro Electronic Muffs

“Emax”

BTIbrands.com | $22.94 to $29.74

Groove Ring

“Emax”

Here’s an interesting gift idea that has love all over it — wether it’s for your one true love or a statement about your love of the outdoors. “Most important to anglers, they are incredibly breathable and comfortable, in fact, you can barely tell you are even wearing it,” according to the 2018 In-Fisherman Holiday Gift Guide. Lots of styles from which to choose.
