Genesis Original


If you'd like to get your children involved with the great sport of archery, look no further than Genesis Archery for help in doing just that. With its Original bows designed to fit virtually any child, you couldn't ask for better equipment for beginners. With only one cam on the bottom of the each rig, tuning is breeze, recoil is limited, and accuracy is increased. Bows are available in bow right- and left-handed options with plenty of different color schemes to choose from. You also have an opportunity to add a kit to your purchase, which includes a quiver, armguard and five arrows. A hunting bow that packs a bigger punch — the Gen-X — is also offered when the right times comes! MSRP: $170-249 |

Thiessens V1 Whitetail Packable Rainwear Jacket

Thiessens V1 Whitetail Packable Rainwear Jacket

Whether it’s a snowy late-season day or a rainy early-season one, Thiessens’ packable rain jacket is sure to shelter you from the elements. A breathable membrane allows moisture to easily escape, while T-Dry waterproof technology keeps raindrops where they belong — outside the jacket! Wind Defense technology also helps keep those blustery winter breezes at bay. Other features include water-resistant pocket zippers, a protected main zipper with an internal storm flap and a moisture-diversion channel. The jacket comes in sizes M-2XL, and a packable pair of rain pants is also available for the same price. $89.99 |

Danner Pronghorns


The worst part about getting a new pair of Danner Pronghorns is retiring the old pair. But, we’d be happy to trade them out on post-Christmas hunts for this new fifth-generation of the proven design. A blend of old and new, these are built on the original last with a new Terra Force platform that offers better stability on the tough terrain. Uppers are nubuck with nylon panels that shed extra weight, backed by the newest Gore-Tex technology for waterproof protection. MSRP: $230 |

NexGen Outfitters Whitetail Caddy


With more pockets than a pool hall, 18 in total, NexGen Outfitters Whitetail Caddy can carry everything a deer addict needs for a season in the stand. It’s designed to keep calls, scents, gloves and field gear organized and close at hand. Can stand upright in a pop-up blind, or be hung from a limb. Quiet tricot fabric is backed with a water-resistant lining to keep the interior dry. Cmo: Realtree Edge or Realtree Timber. MSRP: $100 |

Montana Decoy Co. Dreamy Doe

Montana Decoy Co. Dreamy Doe

This foldable deer decoy is worth far more than its weight in gold. Measuring just 13x16 inches when folded, expanding to an impressive 37x40 inches and weighing a mere 30 ounces, Montana Decoy Co.’s Dreamy Doe is the ultimate in mobile bowhunting. Add a Teaser Tail ($18.99; sold separately) to draw in rutting bucks, or pair the Dreamy Doe with other buck and doe decoys from Montana to imitate a herd of peaceful whitetails. However and wherever you use it, the Dreamy Doe is sure to take the attention off of you and your setup. $69.99 |

Adventure Medical Kits Sportsman 300


Among the list of camp necessities, a first-aid kit is among the most essential, but often overlooked item. Keep the Adventure Medical Kits Sportsman 300 close at hand to cover most minor, and a few major, mishaps. Well organized and clearly label, it also for fast response without digging through unnecessary stuff. Detachable trauma pack is great for carrying on day-long hunts. MSRP: $75 |

SIG Ammunition


In recent years, SIG has made a big splash by jumping into the ammo world with gun blazing. Their newest offering is designed to keep sportsmen on target at extended ranges. Elite Hunter Tipped ammo features corrosion-resistant, nickel-plated cases topped with premium lead-alloy bullets for reliable performance. Polymer tipped design adds to a high ballistic coefficient for maximum accuracy downrange and initiates expansion for devastating terminal performance. Available in .243, 6mm, 6.5 Creedmoor, .260, .270, .308, .30-06 and .300 Win. Mag. MSRP: $21-$56 |

Work Sharp Pivot Plus Sharpener


A lightweight hone is an essential part of your field-dressing kit, and Worksharp continues to make some of the best. Their new Pivot Plus sharpener weighs next to nothing and takes up little space, but delivers three different surfacest to put an edge on any blade. Both the carbide sharpener and ceramic rods pivot as you pull the blade through for continues coverage. A diamond rat tail hone swivels into place to sharpen serrated blades. MSRP: $8 |

LaCrosse Men’s Merino Midweight Socks

LaCrosse Men’s Merino Midweight Sock

Socks are the proverbial no-no when it comes to thoughtful gifts, but stay with me here. These aren’t ordinary socks; they’re specifically designed to provide optimal moisture-wicking when worn with LaCrosse knee-high boots. These made-in-the-USA socks are crafted from ethically sourced, non-Mulesed merino wool and feature an over-the-calf design for maximum comfort. They also feature arch support to help reduce fatigue when walking or standing — perfect for when you’ve hiked several miles onto public land and then have to stand in place while a big buck mills around just outside of bow range. Alphaburly Pros make for a nice gift, too, of course. $19 |
