Browning Trail Cameras
You can never go wrong with new trail cams! Browning introduced several new models for 2019, including the new Defender Wireless Cellular Camera.

Custom gifts are always a hit! B2 Paracord Creations offers archery wrist slings, game call lanyards and game slings all made with 550 Paracord. They offer multiple braid styles, and a huge selection of colors so you can be sure to match anyone's set up. These are not only great in the field, but useful if a survival situation arises! (I ordered a custom wrist sling for my new bow and absolutely love it! Matches perfectly and is very comfortable.)

It's cold. Period. And while we all love Hot Hands disposable hand warmers, constantly having to replenish the supply gets old! This year, give the gift of warmth that keeps giving day after day.

Have any new hunters on your list? Here are a couple of great ideas for them too!
BaseMap App Subscription
My go-to hunting app has become BaseMap and I recommend it for anyone that will be doing any outdoor activities. Not only does it provide the ability to scout electronically from anywhere, but in the field it offers hundreds of layers relating to hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, travel, and more. Additionally, the app offers all 50 states for one low price.
Purchase online at BaseMap.com.
Available for iOS or Android. Annual PRO subscription is $29.99.
How to Gut a Deer Bandana
Perfect for wearing around your neck to provide protection from the sun, a great water filter in the backcountry, useful for cleaning optics...and best of all: clear instructions on how to gut a deer! This is a perfect gift for a new hunter that's just getting started, or that friend that always calls you after they've got a deer on the ground.
Available from TheMeatEater.com for $25
How to Hunt Like a Girl E-Book
This is an easy gift to purchase and email, or get crafty and print it out and put it in a binder. Carly Brasseux offers a wealth of information that would be useful for any new huntress. Everything from general terminology to clothing selection, hunting ethics and conservation to eating wild game.
(this is a digital download, not a physical book)
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.
