When picking a Christmas present for sportsmen and women, skip novelty finds like a camo-clad tie or bobble-head buck and invest in a gift worth giving. The perfect present is one that gets used, not one that ends up in the bottom of a drawer or, worse, on next-year’s garage sale table. From stocking-sized shooting accessories to field-ready finds for the hunter, this list should kick-start the holiday shopping season and serve as inspiration for a wish list of your own.
- Pay attention, campers, because if there’s a Big Agnes or Large Marge in your life, there’s enough room in the Big Agnes Jack Rabbit SL for both you and her. Or you and three of your thinner hunting buddies. At just a touch more than six pounds packed, this four-person tent provides 57 square feet of floor space, and the three-season design is great for backcountry elk hunts or high-country scouting missions. It sheds weight thanks to the half-mesh body, lightweight nylon shell, and rugged, yet air-light, aluminum poles. A full nylon fly stakes out to offer a 13½-square-foot vestibule for storing packs, gear, and stinky boots.
