Gift under $40 ???
My family draws names for Christmas gifts, I luckily drew my nephew this year instead of my niece or sister in law. The gifts are supposed to be under $40. My nephew is an avid hunter about 30 years old. Let’s hear some good gift ideas.
Deer testicles.... because they're under a buck....
my mom did a basket with hand warmers, scent shield ,shampoo, camo face paint, deer drags wicks, stuff like that stuff i buy every year I liked it.
Look at what he has, ask gently about what he needs, and when in doubt give money placed in a surprise well locked magic box as per link above.
A Gatco or Lansky sharpener system
Outdoor edge - replaceable blade knife. $25 - $40 online. My local sporting goods store has the $35. I bet you could find knife and extra blades for about $40. It's like a Havalon but much stronger/secure blades and easier to replace.
Extra blades if he has a replacable balde knife. SD Cards for trail cameras
A cheap ugly Christmas sweater then catch up to him after he has opened it and give him a $50 gift card to cabelas or local shop.
bad karma's Link
A pack of rage broadheads.
I second the butt out. Add a magazine subscription, if he has one he likes. RMEF or other membership.
Pope and Young membership!
Havalon Piranha knife
Subscription to Outdoor News. Great weekly hunting/fishing newspaper with state-specific (including MN) editions. It's a gift that gives 52 weeks of the year. I give a subscription to all of my hunting buddies. Costs $36/year.
Agree on a Havalon or Outdoor Edge replaceable blade knife. Be sure to get an orange or bright colored handle on it. I don't think any hunter in the history of hunting has benefited from a camo knife. The only one who benefits is the knife company when it gets set down or dropped and can't be found.
A guy can never have too many knives or hats.
Assuming he uses trail cams, how bout an SD card reader that plugs directly into his phone or tablet . Makes data collection easy and no need to switch out cards. Mine was Apple and its 30$
My question; Is he your favorite nephew?
Oh come on...why not just blow him away and buy him a really nice pair of Binos. Yeah it will cost you...but you will floor everyone at the gift exchange....AND be his favorite uncle after that.
A game camera that is on sale.
Yep like stated Outdoor Edge Knife.
Gift card and let him decide what he wants
Sawyer mini Water filter. Rmef membership usually $35. Sometimes includes a nice free gift like a knife set. Eastman’s bow hunting about the same. Two pairs smart wool socks. Six mountain house meals... I could go on and on ;-)
We're having a Christmas sale where you can buy a trail camera theft deterrent band, a SD Card Guardian and a combo pack including a tag Guardian and license Guardian for $35.99. Heck of a savings off regular prices on useful hunting equipment. Should be on guardian angels.com by Friday. Gary
Hand warmers. A damn case of them.
I do agree with the thermacell, the best/most used gift ive received.
Flashlight Deer calls Gloves
Dicks is having some great sales right now. Double your value with 50% off as is Cabelas.
Need to find out somehow what he has doesn’t have etc. Many great ideas above. Thermacell, Pack of broadheads, mixed bag with hand warmers, grunt call, estrous bleat etc, deer feeder if legal in his area, trail cam.
Big Box Store, gift card. No further discussion needed.
