2018 Father's Day Gift Guide

Find the perfect Father's Day gift with this list of the must-have gear for Dad

For so many of us, our love for the outdoors started with a trip to the woods or a walk to the farm pond with our fathers. Those early moments afield helped spark a passion for the hunting and fishing traditions that burns eternal, driving us all to pursue our favorite game whenever possible. Here's hoping you'll find the time this Father's Day to spend time outside with your loved ones. And, if you're hunting the perfect gift for the dad in your life, the crew here at NAW has selected the following options that are sure to please!

onX Hunt Maps Elite

There's nothing more frustrating than being out hunting in new terrain, looking down at your phone for a map, and getting nothing because you are out of cell range. One solution comes from onX, an app made for exploring. Before you go, you can create maps with the features you want, like wilderness areas, access points and satellite imagery, and then save the map to your phone.


The app uses the GPS in your phone and then pinpoints your position over your saved map. It tracks you, no cell reception required, and lets you check out the area via topo maps, satellite imagery or any of the other 12 types of map layers you have downloaded. The app is free, but you'll want to add features (prices are free for a trial of seven days to $119.99 per year). The Elite subscription will get you access to maps of all 50 states.
