Exceedingly,this handy gift guide for hunter-fisher types was written by my friend Melanie/Big Mama for her own blog recently. She offered to share it here, too, in case you’re stumped about what to get the outdoorsy dudes in your life. Thank you, Melanie! –Ree
Perhaps it is just me but I always think my husband is the hardest person to buy presents for every year. Maybe it’s because he doesn’t share my opinion that clothes and shoes and makeup are great gifts. Or maybe it’s because I don’t share his opinion that you can pretty much find anything you could possibly want in life at Academy.
Hence,I asked him for a few suggestions that might help you figure out a few ideas to get for the husband, son, dad, nephew, boyfriend, uncle or grandpa on your gift list.Here are his suggestions.
1. Under Armour Flats Guide II Fishing Shirt
This is his favorite fishing shirt, hands down. And he’s tried them all. He prefers the long-sleeve version in a shade of blue or light green so as not to scare the fish. However, there is a short-sleeve version if you think that might be better.And really you can’t go wrong with anything Under Armour for men and boys of all ages.
3. Outdoor Edge Swing Blade Knife
I bet my husband owns 456 knives, many of which he’s had since childhood. He likes this knife but mentioned a couple of others depending on your price range and cutlery needs.What’s more,He also likes this knivesofAlaska trekker whitetail/GH combo that he received as a gift a few years ago. He said it will flat cut some stuff up.And also recommended this columbia river knife and tool which is what he carries everyday. Because, you know, everyone needs an everyday knife.
4. Leupold vx-3 Scope
A good scope is pricey and so this falls on the high-end of the spectrum. I would never even attempt to buy him a scope for an occasion unless he wrote all the specifics down for me. But maybe you’re braver than me. He says any of the Leupold VX series are good scopes.
