Last Minute Gifts for Hunters
Searching for hunting gifts is not always the easiest task, so we thought we would help with this Last Minute Gifts for Hunters List. Hunting gifts do not need to be very complicated. Listening to the hunter in your life can help you find the perfect hunting gift. I leave little hints all year long like, “It sure would be nice if I had a decent pair of wool socks that didn’t have holes in them for duck season.” Listening to those little hints will help you find the perfect hunting gifts. If you have not recieved any hints from the hunter in your life, we are here to help you find the perfect hunting gifts. This is our Last Minute Gift Guide for Hunters. Also check out our 2016 Hunting Holiday Gift Guide.
SIG SAUER Electro-Optics KILO2400 ABS Rangefinder
If your hunter is into long range shooting this is the ultimate hunting gift. SIG SAUER partnered with Applied Ballistics to create the ultimate in a long-distance ballistic rangefinder. There really is not a finer rangefinder on the market that has the distance and quality this rangefinder provides. It includes a fully featured embedded Applied Ballistics Calculator, onboard environmental sensors and Bluetooth for synchronizing custom profiles with a free, downloadable ballistic app for both iOS and Android smartphones. The KILO2400 ABS includes a tripod adapter, smartphone jack WindMETER, ballistic nylon Molle kit bag and nylon carry pouch. A lanyard, three spare batteries, and SIG SAUER Tactical pen/stylus also come standard with every KILO2400 ABS. This product has all the tools to get you up and running for long-range precision target shooting and hunting. Reflective distances up to 2 miles, on deer at 1400 yards and on trees at 1800 yards so with that kind of sensitivity you are looking at the ultimate rangefinder. Look for them at www.sigoptics.com.
SPOT Satellite Messenger Generation 3
This summer Edward Gramza IV wrote a review of the SPOT Messenger Gen 3 and we liked it so much that we had to add it to our hunting gift guide. It does not hurt that SPOT is offering a Half Off Holiday promotion offering the unit at half price through the holidays. These units are best in class tracking devices for when you are off grid and even when you are on grid. The S.O.S. button allows you to hit that button and know that the cavalry is coming regardless of where you are in North America. The tracking feature for us is the most important feature because our spouses know where we are to the exact spot when we are out hunting steep and deep country. If they don’t hear from us, they can easily come find us even off the grid. Set it and forget it. Pre-set your SPOT GEN3 to send tracks at the speed of your adventures. Change your tracks to send every 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes. This gives you piece of mind to go steep and deep. Get one at FindMeSpot.com.
Leatherman Skeletool CX
We absolutely love the functionality of the multi-tool and we have said before: the Leatherman brand builds the best in the industry. When we are outdoors in the woods we gravitate to the Leatherman Signal, but just about anywhere else the first one we grab is the Skeletool CX. It is small, lightweight and offers 7 tools which is about all we need for basic EDC (Every Day Carry) use. More is not always better and having a lightweight tool in your pocket whether you are in a suit, jeans or out on the town, this is a tool you will love to own. Check out the Skeletool CX.
Tactical Candy Canes
We love peppermint ice cream but peppermint candy canes are the worst. They never get fully eaten, kids eat half of them, set them down on the carpet and they stick to the carpet. They are fun and decorative but not for us. We love these Tactical Candy Canes for adults. They look great hanging on the tree and they are handy tools when re-shaped into a bracelet to be worn every day from the team at survival straps. These are gifts that will stand the test of time for hunters, shooters and campers. Who knows? Someday that Tactical Candy Cane may just be the bracelet that helped someone get out of a very very tough situation.
The Stormy Kromer
The Stormy Kromer is an absolute legend. The company was started in 1903 by George and Ida Kromer and has now been in production for over 113 years. The hats are a legend to those living in the North East and they are a legend among hunting guides throughout the nation. I started wearing one of these after my first elk hunt. It took me almost a year to find one and I now own 3 of them. Currently, my #stormywish is the new Harris Tweed Cap in green. I would be happy with a maybe 3-4 more of these caps hanging near my desk so anytime I was headed out to the field they would be ready no matter what I was wearing. These caps are comfortable, offer exceptional fit and are as stylish as they come. Even better, when it’s cold just pull the ear flaps down to keep your ears warm. Buy one as a hunting gift and buy one for yourself because once you throw on one of these caps you start to realize why folks consider these hats a legend. www.stormykromer.com
12 Survivors First Aid Rollup Kit
Every hunter should have a first aid kit in their truck, their pack and in their hunting cabin. Giving a hunter one of these as a gift shows them that you care about their safety and that you want them to come home at the end of their adventure. What I like about this particular hunting kit is that it is filled with some quality supplies and it has room to add more supplies. I stock the kit the way I want a kit to be set up for my first aid kit and for my friends around me. This kit comes complete and it rolls up well for packing at the bottom of my pack so I always know that it is ready in case I really need it. 12 Survivors has a Mini version that sits well inside your backpack while the big version is better for in the vehicle. www.12survivors.com
