Top 5 smokin hot gift ideas Deer Hunters want

For most of us, finding the right gift for all our deer hunting friends and family on their birthday, Father’s Day and Christmas holiday is a bit of a challenge, to say the least. We take the time to listen to what all the hunters on our shopping list have to say about the new deer hunting stuff available this year. We even invest our valuable TV time, watching the Outdoor Channel, actually watching the mind numbing commercials. Oh yes we do, we are on a mission looking for one of those special deer hunting items, the ones that cause our deer hunters, to daydream. Continue reading this article, as we discuss the top five smokin hot gift ideas whitetail deer hunters want..

Gift Ideas Whitetail Deer Hunters Actually want

# 1 gift idea for whitetail deer hunters,

Whitetail deer hunters, like any other outdoor sports enthusiast, are passionate about their sport, and quite simply, want the latest and greatest stuff out there to ensure their hunting success.

When asked the question, what is the single, most important tip a hunter needs to understand to become a successful whitetail deer hunter, a professional hunter will certainly tell you. Whitetail deer hunters, like any other big game hunter, must first learn unbelievable patience. Then our deer hunter will learn the importance of good scent control.

Ok, let us focus on patience for a moment; it is utterly impossible to be patient, when a hunter is uncomfortable. That is why, the number one gift for hunters and anyone that spends time outdoors, doing what they love to do, is high tech clothing and footwear.

Under Armor has been the number one choice of athletes in the know for years. Heat gear helps a body keep itself cool, on warm fall afternoons, and hot late summer days, when a hunter is walking from the truck to a stand, doing a little pre-season scouting, or maybe sneaking in a little dove hunting.

Under Armor’s cold gear helps to keep a body warm, when it is cold enough to freeze the balls off the proverbial brass monkey. For years hunters have known, the trick to keeping warm, is dressing in layers of high tech fabrics.

Look at it as a personal climate control system, starting with a snug fitting, and most importantly, moisture wicking layer against the skin.

Followed-up by adding layers of insulating fabrics, the type and number used depends on how cold and wet the weather is.

Top the whole wardrobe off, by using a quiet high tech outer garment made of fabrics that will provide wind and water repelling properties, which help to control, perspiration, wind and rain from getting against a deer hunter’s skin, making them miserable.

Hot binoculars gift ideas hunters wish they had

# 2 gift idea for whitetail deer hunters,

Much like high tech clothing and footwear protects a hunter’s body from the weather, keeping them comfortable, high quality binoculars make it so much easier to keep a watchful eye on the surroundings.

It is much easier to be patient, when a hunter has something other than the wife and kids, work or the home improvement project that needs attention on their mind. With a first class set of 10X42 binoculars in their hands, glassing the surroundings will be so much of a pleasure.

They will see things they never would have seen without the clear images provided by the multi coated glass lenses of a truly high-end set of excellent binoculars. No more head aches, fuzzy images, or missed opportunities for a shot at that monster buck they let walk because they thought it was a doe.

Yes, it really happens, the color of a buck’s antlers blend in with the small tree limbs and branches, cheaply made binoculars do not enhance colors, as the high price binoculars do, I learned this little fun fact the hard way. Check out a pair of, Swarovski Optic EL Swarovision Binocular, 10x42 mm and make it possible for your hunter, see what he / she have been overlooking.

Hot gift ideas Hunters really want

# 3 gift idea for whitetail deer hunters,

Wearing a good set of hunting clothes and boots, and a great set of binoculars in their hands, any whitetail hunter is well on their way to a successful deer season.

The next item on the list is a tree stand, ok I hear what you are thinking, and they have a tree stand already. Know the truth of the matter. Deer hunters can never have too many deer stands.

Whitetail hunters need several different styles of tree stands, climbing tree stands, hang-on tree stands, ladder tree stands, and let us not forget, tripod tree stands.

There is absolutely, no tree stand model that works in all whitetail deer hunting situations. Climbing stands, hang-on stands, and ladder stands require a tree large enough to withstand the weight of both the hunter and their gear, the weight of the stand, and the weather conditions.

Tripod stands are self-supporting, but they do require a solid footing on reasonably level ground. These types of hunting stands, however do lend themselves to a great many set-up options. As an elevated hunting blind, they are easily adapted to a simple platform with a comfortable swivel seat, or a box blind set-up making them a great option where wide open spaces are the hot spot.

Top smokin hot trail camera gift ideas hunters wish they had

# 4 gift idea for whitetail deer hunters,

When the hunters start talking about preseason scouting their hunting areas, nothing works quite like a trail camera. Help your hunters avoid wearing out the trails of the hot spot they plan to hunt this season, get them a trail camera that will let them know exactly what, where and when a trophy buck is moving through their hunting area. I would recommend the Reconyx HyperFire Infrared Digital Game Camera HC600

The Bone Collector Blind is a great hunting blind for those of us that enjoy bowhunting, shotgun and rifle deer, turkeys, bear and other critters...


Top pop-up hunting blind gift ideas

# 5 gift idea for whitetail deer hunters,

No deer hunter’s bag of tricks is complete without a high quality pop-up hunting blind. On those occasions, when a hunter would rather not use a tree stand, a tripod is out of the question, and a hunter needs a way to share the hunting experience with a young or handicapped hunter.

There is quite simply no better way to accomplish this task, other than using a top quality pop-up hunting blind. As a side note, my seven-year-old son had the time of his life, turkey hunting in western Kentucky. When we used my old double bull hunting blind. Oh yes, he did harvest his first long beard, with his 20 gauge shotgun.

Have you ever turkey hunted with a seven-year old boy? They tend to move around a lot. Using a hight quality pop-up hunting blind works like no tree stand can, to conceal the movements of younger, or older hunters that just cannot sit still.

FYI, Pick-up at leaste one of the Ameristep Bone Collector pop-up hunting blinds for all the deer, turkey and bear hinters on your list this year...
