When my wife bought me the Power LED Beanie as a gift I had no idea how much I would love it. It has proven to be one of the most useful tools in my hunting arsenal.

13. Ozonic’s HR-230 Scent Elimination Device

A whitetail deer’s nose is more powerful than a bloodhound. That makes scent elimination paramount for the whitetail hunter. There are lots of solutions to this problem but none as effective as ozone generators. The Ozonic’s HR-230 Scent Elimination Device creates a curtain of scent killing ozone to wash a hunters scent trail. Basically you have a veil of ozone eliminating your scent as it passes through.

I’m going to keep this one short. I’ve drowned two iPhones in the woods in the last 6 months. Having a Cell phone Dry Bag to keep your phone and other valuables dry is no joke. You don’t want to lose pictures, passwords, and other important info, not to mention phones are expensive.

15. Binoculars – Vortex Diamondback Roof Prism

Optics are SO important to hunters. You need to be able to identify prey and make important decisions about what course of action to take. We LOVE Vortex Optics.

You could literally drive over your binoculars with your truck and they would still fix them or replace them. In addition to the warranty, they make a great product that won’t break the bank.

18. Illuminated Nocks

Probably one of the most helpful pieces of archery tech for hunters. Illuminated Nocks let you see your arrow after it leaves the string. This makes it easier to see where your shot hits an animal, and also helps find and retrieve your arrow. We prefer green but more colors are available.

Perfect gift for: Archery hunters


19. The MeatEater Fish and Game Cookbook

The hunt is the kill is only part of the reason we love to hunt. The other part is cooking and eating free-range wild meat. The MeatEater Fish and Game Cookbook by Steve Rinella is chock full of delicious recipes that will stretch and inspire you to try new ways to prepare wild game, which will, in turn, inspire you to get out there and harvest more wild game.

20. Ameristep Silent Brickhouse Ground Blind

When a ground blind is the best option for getting within range of your target you need one that is reliable. The Ameristep Silent Brickhouse Ground Blind is a great entry-level ground blind. Not only is it easy to set up, but it also has enough room for a hunting partner to sit with you. I love these hub style ground blinds are great for taking kids along on the hunt.

22. Jet Boil Camping Stove Cooking System

I’ve been using a Jet Boil Camping Stove Cooking System as my primary backpacking stove for almost 14 years. My Jet Boil is still going strong and I still love it. I haven’t gone out for a day of elk hunting this year without my Jet Boil in tow. It’s light, compact, and super-efficient. Quickly boil water for freeze-dried meals or use the Pot Attachment with your camping pots and pans. One of my favorite things to do is to use the French Press Attachment to brew coffee on the mountain.

Perfect gift for: Backcountry hunters who want to be light and fast.


23. Vortex Optics Diamondback Spotting Scope

I’ve already mentioned Vortex Optics’ incredible warranty. The Diamondback Spotting Scope is a must-have in the field.

The Plano Sportsmans Trunk is sturdy to keep your gear safe. Wheels make it easy to move even when fully loaded, and they are made to stack for maximum storage capabilities.


30. Trail Camera – Bushnell Trophy Cam HD

Hunters can NEVER have enough trail cameras. There is always one more place to put a camera. The Bushnell Trophy Cam HD has been an industry standard for years. It’s a workhorse camera that can take the all abuse mother nature will throw at it. With a super-fast .2 second trigger, 100ft range, and no-glow led this camera is a beast in the field.

It features a removable core which means you can easily replace the core once you’ve worn it out and keep on pounding.

33. Bear Spray

Bear spray is simply an essential safety precaution for anyone who hunts in bear country. As a hunter, you are usually trying to move through the woods as quietly as possible which increases your chances of encountering a bear. Bear Spray actually performs better in test studies than firearms when it comes to deterring bears.

35. Binocular Tripod Attachment

This handy Binocular Tripod Attachment takes the strain off your eyes by connecting your binoculars to a tripod. Many types of hunting include hours and hours of glassing into deep ravines. It’s very difficult to hold your binoculars steady for long periods of time. The only way to guarantee you are seeing everything is to attach your binos to a tripod. You will not regret this investment because it will pay dividends in actually spotting game.

Perfect gift for: Big game hunters that spend time glassing.


36. NutriChef Vacuum Sealer

Vacuum sealing your wild game meat will guarantee it will be freshly preserved for future enjoyment. The NutriChef Vacuum Sealer preserves food up to 5 times longer than other methods. That means none of your precious venison will go to waste at the bottom of the freezer. It’s simply the best way to package the meat you harvest in the field. I also like that the clear bags make it easy to see what cut of meat you are reaching for in the freezer. If you process a lot of wild game every year you may need a commercial-grade Vacuum Sealer. Check out Weston Pro-2300 Commercial Grade Vacuum Sealer.

Perfect gift for: Anyone who packages their own wild game


37. Primos Magnum Roar – Grunt Tube

This is my favorite grunt tube of all time. I have killed several mature whitetail deer with the help of the Primos Magnum Roar. It has a deep guttural grunt that brings bucks running. One time I grunted in a field and had four bucks appear out of the trees. They were coming from every direction. This grunt tube is one tool I would not go into the woods without. The main tube can be manipulated to simulate different size bucks, while the small tube is designed to deliver a “snort wheeze” which can turn a buck on a dime and bring him straight to your feet. Don’t buy this call unless you want to bend bucks to your will.

Perfect gift for: Whitetail deer hunters.


38. Flextone Whitetail Rattling Antlers

If you’ve never rattled for whitetail deer during the peak of the rut you are missing one of the most exciting things you can do in the woods. The Flextone Whitetail Rattling Antlers are a perfect substitute for real antlers. They deliver a lifelike sound that imitates the sound of two whitetail bucks fighting over a doe. The clack of antlers is often irresistible to bucks and can turn a slow day in the whitetail woods into a fireworks show.

Also Consider: The Black Rack Rattling System

41. Gear Bag with Ozone Generator

Another brilliant application for Ozone technology is the Gear Bag with Ozone Generator. This is essentially a dry wash for your hunting gear. Everyone knows that washing your camo and other hunting clothes over and over will shorten the life of the garments. Not to mention sometimes on a hunt you don’t have access to laundry facilities. Problem solved! Just stick your camo in the bag and let the ozone wash away the human odor so you are scent-free for your next hunt.

Perfect gift idea for hunters who care about scent control. Especially whitetail hunters.
