The ultimate hunter gift guide for 2021
The holiday season is fast approaching. And the goHUNT Gear Shop has you covered! There are tons of options in our Gear Shop that will make any hunter happy.
Below are several great items that would make the perfect gift for any hunter in your life.
Goal Zero Crush Light Lantern
This light is one of the office favorites! The Goal Zero Crush Light is a collapsable lantern that you can hang in your tent or even on a tree branch if you have to cut wood at night around camp. The greatest part, this light has a built-in solar panel that will keep it charged up when you're off hunting during the day. In addition to the solar charger, you could also charge it up with a USB cord plugged into any sort of charger bank if it gets cloudy on your hunt. A great stocking stuffer!
Dark Energy Poseidon Pro
Let’s face it when you use your phone for maps throughout a hunt, plus each night you're using a headlamp and you might even have a satellite messenger with you, eventually, you’ll want to be able to charge those items up. The Dark Energy Poseidon Pro is a solid choice for a power bank for any hunter.
Darn Tough Merino Hunter Boot Cushion 2011 Sock
It’s hard to say “hunting sock” without instantly thinking of Darn Tough. Their Merino Hunter Boot Cushion 2011 socks are perfect for any hunt and they're even great socks for wearing during daily activities outside of hunting. A good pair of merino wool socks are essential on a Western hunt! In addition to the high-quality merino wool, these socks have a performance fit that will not slip, bunch up or cause blisters.
Outdoor Research Yukon Cap
Not only does this Outdoor Research Yukon Cap look cool, but it’s also comfortable and warm! Plus it has drop-down ear flaps and the brim can be folded up. Win. Win. Available in several colors. Another great stocking stuffer for this holiday season.
Outdoor Research Tundra Aerogel Booties
When the temperatures drop on late season hunts, it’s nice to have booties to slip on. These Outdoor Research Tundra Aerogel Booties are perfect for cold glassing sessions and they are even great to have when you are relaxing back at camp at night. What sets these booties apart is they have a compression-resistant PrimaLoft Aerogel insert that acts as a thermal barrier between your feet and the elements. Plus... they are super lightweight at only 9.3 oz per pair.
Mystery Ranch 3 Way Briefcase
The Mystery Ranch 3 Way Briefcase is designed to be carried in three different ways; as a briefcase, shoulder bag or backpack. It will keep your computer, notepads, charge cords, and anything else you need during your workday organized. It's made with 500D Cordura and will serve you well when traveling across the country or just headed from your house to work.
goHUNT Buck Pro Hat
If you're an ounce counter... this Argali Carbon Knife is for you! It weighs only 1.8 oz and the blade is razor sharp and can hold an edge due to the S35VN steel, which can be called the best steel on the market for a hunting knife.
Platypus Big Zip EVO Hydration Bladder
Another goHUNT favorite! The Platypus Big Zip Hydration Bladder is built to last and most of us have used the same one for many hunting seasons with zero issues. It's just flat out tough! The giant mouth opening makes it super easy to fill the bladder from any water source and even makes grabbing snow to melt in the Platypus a breeze.
PEAX Sissy Stix Backcountry Elite Trekking Poles
Trekking poles are essential and are basically four-wheel drive when you’re hiking. The Peak Sissy Stix Backcountry Elite Trekking Poles will make hunting more enjoyable by taking the pounding off your joints. Once you use them traversing steep terrain, hiking downhill or when carrying heavy loads, you’ll never go back to not using them.
Klymit Static V2 Sleeping Pad
Staying fresh in the mountains starts with having a great sleeping pad. The Klymit Static V2 Sleeping Pad is a solid option no matter your sleeping style. You'll also appreciate that this pad only takes roughly 10-15 breaths to inflate.
Petzl Actik Core Headlamp
If there's one item a hunter could always use as a gift this is it! The Petzl Actik Core Headlamp is a great choice. It is bright at 450 lumens and it's super simple to use with only one button. Probably the greatest feature of this light is the ability to use a rechargeable CORE battery (included) or 3 standard AAA batteries (not included).
Goal Zero Nomad 5 Solar Kit
In the age where keeping your gear charged up is imperative in the backcountry, you have to either take extra batteries with you or opt for the easier option: a solar panel. The Goal Zero Nomad 5 Solar Kit is the perfect gift for the hunter in your life who complains about carrying multiple batteries into the backcountry.
Garmin inReach Mini
Staying connected in the backcountry when you're not in cell service is essential. If you've been looking at satellite communicators before, be sure to check out the Zoleo Satellite Communicator. They are a big office hit here at goHUNT due to their long battery life and cheaper service plans.
Vortex Car Window Mount
Sometimes it's nice to have the ability to glass from a vehicle. The Vortex Car Window Mount is perfect for those times when you want to do some glassing from the comfort of your truck with binoculars or a spotting scope.
Big Agnes TwisterCane Bio Foam Hiking Seat
Glassing for hours on end can get uncomfortable. But if you add a glassing pad, you're setting yourself up for success! The Big Agnes TwisterCane Bio Foam Seat is an extremely lightweight way to add comfort to glassing sessions. Weighing in at only 2 oz, you'll hardly realize you're carrying it on a backcountry hunt. Also, once you take an animal, it's a great pad to place under your knees when you're skinning and cutting up meat.
