Holiday Gifts for the Outdoor Enthusiast: A Huntress View Gift Guide


It’s that time of year where we’re all scrambling to find the best gifts for everyone on our shopping lists. When it comes to the hunter or outdoor enthusiast, there are so many options—even for those people that seem to already have everything. Along with members of the Huntress View team, I’ve put together our top recommendations for holiday gift giving, including gifts for the dog!

STOCKING STUFFERS

Lip balm and candy canes are great, but this year, stuff those stockings with something they really want.

Havalon Piranta Knife

Available in a variety of styles and colors, the Havalon Piranta knife is perfect for the hunter or huntress on your list. It’s compact size and replaceable blades make it ideal for skinning meat in the field or butchering at home. Although the knifes come with replacement blades, the blades stay sharp even after multiple uses. Prices start at $39.99.

Nature’s Paint

Every hunter needs camo face paint. Nature’s Paint is 100% natural, and it’s easy-on/easy-off formula means no scrubbing or irritation. Comes in lip balm-style tube, and is available in 3 colors: Ash Black, Moss Green and Buck Brown. You can purchase the colors individually, but I recommend the combo pack ($16.49) that comes with all 3 colors and includes a convenient mirror and lanyard.

OnXMaps Subscription

Give the gift of exploration with onXMaps. The onXMap app is perfect for any hunter or outdoorsman/woman because it provides essentials such as land boundaries, aerial views, offline maps and custom waypoints. Additionally, users can track their hunting or hiking distance and time, while leaving a clear path to follow back. We use our subscription all year, for scouting, hunting and exploring. Available as a gift card, the recipient can select any of the 50 states when they sign up. Starts at $29.99.

Hand, Toe and Body Warmers

Give the gift of warmth! When it’s cold outside, any outdoorsman/woman can appreciate a little pocket-sized heater. Brands such as Hot Hands and Little Hotties are convenient and just need a bit of air to stay warm!

Available at retailers such as Walmart, Cabela’s, Tractor Supply and more.

New in 2017, the Browning Strike Force HD Pro Trail Camera features top-of-the line features that any trail cam addict will appreciate.

Accubow

With Accubow’s simple design, practicing has been made easier. One of the best things about it is that anyone—young, old, beginner, or experienced—can use it because of its versatility. The Accudial allows you to increase or decrease your poundage as you train, and a built-in laser sight helps with stability issues. The Accuband and built-in shock absorber was designed for unlimited dry firing. Two options are available, starting at $149.99 and a variety of options and add-ons can be purchased.

Sitka Gear

Sitka just launched their women’s line in January 2017, so it’s likely a lot of outdoorswomen have included it on their Christmas wish list this year. These clothes are not only comfortable, but they are functional and blend in perfectly with the terrain. The line includes everything from pants and jackets, to bibs, layering options, accessories, everyday logo wear and packs. Sizes XS-XXL are available. Size options and prices vary by product.

Merino Wool Accessories

As primarily a backcountry hunter, merino is my favorite material to use. It is breathable and super warm, as well as lightweight and natural. Three items that should be at the top of every backcountry or cold-weather hunter’s accessories list are: neck gaiter/buff, beanie and gloves. These items are small and can be easily carried in packs when not needed. My go-to brands are Icebreaker and First Lite—both offer a variety of products to select from.

Available at: www.icebreaker.com or www.firstlite.com

Viking KwikHoist

Make your favorite hunter’s life a little easier with the Viking KwikHoist system. This rugged hoist simply attaches to a tree or pole, and works great for lifting deer and other game (up to 400 lbs.) for skinning, cleaning and quartering. The lightweight design means you can easily move it from home to deer camp with no problems. Available for $89.99.

Portable Food and Water Bowls

Great for travel and outdoor adventures, Browning’s compact and portable dog bowls are a durable and easy way to keep your dog fed and hydrated while you’re on the go.

Finally, for the people on your list that already have everything, a donation in their name or membership to a conservation group is a great option. Organizations such as the Sportsmen’s Alliance, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, NWTF, RMEF, Duck’s Unlimited, Safari Club International, and so many more, make a huge contribution to the hunting world. Check your area for local organizations or chapters that support efforts in your area.

Happy Holidays from the Huntress View team!
