While the bowhunter in your life is working hard to fill their tag, you’re working hard to fill their stocking.
Shopping for hunters can be difficult, so we’ve simplified the task by compiling a list of items that will make any hunter happy. Even better, all these items are readily available at any archery store.
A knife is can be sentimental or utilitarian. You can buy a beautiful heirloom-quality knife that will last many generations or you can go for a knife that will take on tasks like field dressing and processing meat. Can’t decide? You can always give one of each!
Deer have an uncanny sense of smell so, to fool their noses, hunters use scent spray. Scent spray is available as a cover scent or scent elimination. Cover scent uses another smell, like vanilla or even dirt, to disguise human odor. Scent eliminating spray breaks down scent molecules to reduce human odor. With either option your hunter will have an edge in the woods.
Knowing the exact distance to the target is important in archery and bowhunting, which makes a rangefinder a valuable tool. Reaching into a stocking and pulling out a rangefinder would be an incredible surprise for any bowhunter.
After Christmas, many bowhunters shift their focus from deer hunting to spring turkey season. Get them a few turkey calls to practice while they wait for spring.
A thick pair of wool socks are a luxury during chilly, late-season hunts. Help keep our bowhunter’s toes warm with a couple pairs in their stocking.
Camo Face Paint
Camouflage face paint helps hunters stay hidden and look cool. It comes in a small kit that can easily fit in a stocking. Don’t be surprised if they decide to try it on right away!
When hunting season is over, it’s fun to relax on the couch and watch bowhunting action on TV. Pick up a few DVDs at the archery store for year-round hunting entertainment.
Flashlights and Headlamps
Bowhunters spend a lot of time in the darkness, which makes a flashlight important. There are a ton of options when it comes to flashlights and headlamps. Luckily, the staff at the archery shop can help you pick the one best suited for your hunter.
Bow or Action Cameras
An action camera lets bowhunters relive their hunts and share memories. Archery shops carry cameras that mount directly to bows for hands-free filming.
Still can’t decide what to get? A gift card lets your bowhunter buy exactly what they want. The only thing better would be a giant buck under the Christmas tree.
