13 Awesome Father's Day Gift Ideas for Hunters

For this Father's Day, forget the tie or a homemade card and get the old man something he will truly appreciate — hunting gear! They say, it is hard to get a gift for a man who has everything, but since new hunting gear comes out every year, there is surely something on this list he doesn't already possess. Assembled by the Editors of Petersen's Hunting Magazine, this Father's Day Gift Guide is sure to please even the most discriminating outdoorsman.

Husqvarna's Battery Series-Quiet and Powerful

Let's face it: Dad doesn't want to do chores around the house, he has to do chores around the house and the sooner, quicker, and easier he gets them done, the faster he gets to head afield hunting and shooting. So ease his laborious strain this Father's Day with Husqvarna's new line of battery operated power tools. Powerful, quiet and light they offer internal combustion engine performance but with no emissions and less noise. Each battery-powered product is lightweight, easy to use and ergonomically designed for comfort to provide less vibration and strain on your shoulders, arms and wrists.  Offering a complete line for around the house, farm or even in the hunting woods — any one of these items will be a hit this Father's Day.

Chainsaws


Cut up firewood for the cabin or clear a trail for the ATV with Husqvarna powerful and quiet battery chainsaws. The brushless motor, high chain speed, and convenient handling make them excellent alternatives to gasoline-powered chainsaws — and they are easy to carry afield to boot.

Sauer 100 Classic XT

Can't afford to buy Pops a new BMW or Swarovski binocs? Luckily there is no hope even on a tight budget. Like German automobiles and optics, most German rifles are of great quality but carry a hefty price tag. Not so with the Sauer 100. Available in cartridges ranging from .222 to .300 Winchester Magnum, this bolt-action rifle offers lots of features at a reasonable price. The 100 uses a three-position safety mounted just forward of the tang, a user-adjustable trigger that ranges from 2.2 to 4.2 pounds of pull, a detachable box magazine, and a 60-degree bolt throw. $699; sauer.de

Browning Hell's Canyon Speed Backcountry Jacket

Browning calls their athletic-cut clothing "HeroFit," which makes it sound like you're donning tights and a cape. While the Speed line isn't quite that tight, it does fit closer to the body, with less bulk or bagginess around the torso. It also won't allow dad to fly, but the jacket is super comfortable, thanks to four-way stretch shell fabric with soft fleece on the inside. Mostly we dig the A-TACS Foliage camo, which is ideal for anywhere out West, from high desert to sub-alpine. $200; browning.com

First Lite Obsidian Pants

Evolve or die — it's not just the law in nature, but also in the modern world. First Lite follows the law by continually testing and upgrading their most popular gear, including the classic Kanab pants. This newest iteration blends core-spun nylon into the merino for greater durability and adds durable rip-stop, stretch nylon into areas prone to wearing out. The result is the breathable comfort and insulating performance of merino wool pants that will last Dad for several seasons to come. $160-$180; firstlite.com

Buck-119_FDGGBuck 119 Anniversary

You can tell a woodsman from a wannabe by the type of knife hanging from his hip and the classic, black handle of a Buck is the sure mark of master. Buck's 119 was first hammered out by Hoyt Buck in 1942, and the company is celebrating three-quarters of a century of knife-making with this special-edition model. The 420HC steel carries the iconic clip point that can handle everything from splitting kindling to cutting rib bones. 75th anniversary medallion and blade stamp set this model off. If he is lucky, maybe your grandson will get the same model for Father's Day 75 years from now! $96; buckknives.com

KUIU Ultra 3000

Serious overnighters or weekend trips in the backcountry require a bag that is big enough for the essentials without being oversized. The Ultra hits that sweet spot with a 3,000-cubic-inch capacity between the easy-to-access main compartment and smartly placed pockets throughout. Although the fabric construction is light in weight, at 330-denier with a weather-resistant finish, it's also tough enough to take the wear of hard mountain hunts. Like all KUIU packs, this one is mix-and-match compatible, allowing the lightweight, carbon-fiber frame and suspension system to work with any size pack bag from the Ultra or Icon Pro line of packs. $119.99-349.98; kuiu.com

Yeti Hopper Two

The original Hopper was a black hole, or at least it felt like one when the old man was trying to fish that last beer out of the dark, cavernous cooler. Yeti saw the light and went back to the drawing board, creating an all-new soft-sided alternative with a side zipper and wide opening. The new Hopper Two is easier to load, easier to empty and still holds ice longer than most other soft-cooler competitors. Tough as nails exterior will probably outlast your own hide. Available in three sizes: 20, 30 and 40. $300-$400; yeti.com

Bushnell Rubicon Micro Lantern

This little LED lantern throws off a bright glow — up to 200 lumens on high — lighting up any dark tent or blind like the rising sun. Low and ultra-low settings are great for smaller spaces, and a red halo delivers enough light for pre-dawn hikes to the stand without ruining your night vision. Cree LED bulbs blend cool-burning light with maximum battery life. Should the Rubicon lose its power, the integral battery recharges quickly via USB cable. $50; bushnell.com

Browning Predator & Varmint

Nothing say's post-Father's Day fun like a summer day of varmint hunting. Building on its tremendously effective big-game ammunition, Browning has introduced a dedicated line meant for knocking off furry critters. Sporting a polymer-tipped bullet engineered to provide explosive on-impact performance, the line vaporizes prairie dogs and other crop-ruining rodents and flattens bigger chicken-stealing pests of the toothy persuasion. Three popular cartridges — .223 Rem., .22-250 Rem., and .243 Win. — feature light, fast projectiles, and — wait for it — there's a .22 Hornet version loaded with a zippy 35-grain bullet. $20 — 23 per 20; browningammo.com
