Do you have a Texas hunting enthusiast on your holiday shopping list? Are you struggling to find a gift they haven’t already purchased for themselves? You’re not alone! Shopping for hunters can be tricky because they often have very particular needs and preferences when it comes to guns and gear.
The good news is that we have a pretty good idea of what the hunter you’re shopping for will love. Whether your loved one is just getting into the hobby, or has been hunting for a lifetime, you’re sure to find several perfect ideas on our list of holiday gifts that will make the mark for Texas hunting enthusiasts.
In the rain, sleet, and snow, hunters need a jacket that’s whisper-quiet while staking game, fully waterproof, hooded (without obstructing their line of sight), and “blaze-orange” for safety. The L.L. Bean Northwoods Rain Jacket checks every box.
Ryan Cleckner is a former US Army Ranger and Special Ops Sniper. His book, the Long Range Shooting Handbook, teaches the fundamentals of long-range shooting in a way that elevates a hunter’s abilities regardless of their skill level.
The ammunition your hunter will save by employing these techniques will cover the cost of the book dozens of times over. Change a hunter’s life with this invaluable manual.
For tens of thousands of years, hunters have relied on their knives. Once upon a time, most of these knives were made by the hunters themselves. Now, very few knives are designed by hunters. The new Gerber Randy Newberg DTS is an outstanding exception to this rule.
Because Mr. Newberg has been a hunter for decades, he was able to design the perfect knife for hunters. If the hunter in your life skins and butchers deer, elk, moose, or bear, this is the knife they need.
This lightweight knife has two rust-resistant steel blades, one serrated, the other standard. The grip on this blaze-orange knife is reflective, ensuring that it’s easy to find in all hunting conditions.
Hunters do their best to make sure they pack sufficient supplies for their hunting trip. Unfortunately, life doesn’t always go according to plan. To help the hunter in your life survive and thrive in unexpected situations, we recommend the LifeStraw Water Filter. This compact, easy-to-use filter works just like a straw, and it filters out 99.99% of bacteria, protozoa, and mud from water.
There’s no need for iodine, electricity, chlorine, bromine, or an hours-long wait (as required by solar purification). Anyone who spends a significant amount of time outdoors in wild areas will love this gift!
A good portion of hunting is waiting and watching. If your hunter sits, stands, or crouches at the edge of clearings, or under trees, this packable, lightweight tree seat will let them set up a comfortable seat at any height or location they wish. Hunters who use tree seats rarely want to return to sitting on the ground, or standing for hours! Give the gift of comfort to the hunter you love.
