2021 Petersen's Hunting Father's Day Gift Guide

Our top gift ideas for Dad.

Dear old Dad taught you to shoot and took you hunting. Those are no small tasks, but seeing you enjoy the outdoors was his reward. But I bet he wouldn’t mind another big thank-you in the form of some great outdoor gear. Here’s a short list of great gifts for Father’s Day from our team of experts at Petersen’s Hunting.

Stanley Classic Easy-Pour Growler

Stanley Classic 64-Ounce Growler

Dad will be able to transport his favorite beverage in fully functional and iconic style with this 64-ounce growler. The extra-large size keeps liquids extra cold for up to 24 hours. Take control with a rugged handle for easier carrying and one-handed pouring. The wide mouth allows for quick filling, sharing, and cleaning. And that satisfying ‘pop’ you hear when you open the steel-lined lid is a sure sign your carbonated beverage is still fresh and bubbly. Offered in three colors: Matte Black, Nightfall and Hammertone Green.

Realtree ANYWEAR Rechargeable Neck Light

2021 Father's Day Gift Guide
RealTree Anywear Rechargeable Light

We’ve all heard of a headlamp, and likely experienced the headache of wearing one for an extended period of time and the oversized shadow caused by the bill of your hat. Enter the Neck Light. The flexible design wraps securely around the neck, aiming dual beams right where you need them light most. The two lights pivot separately, allowing for greater illumination and a total of 300 lumens of bright light. Switch to red beams for less detection from animals when walking to or from the treestand or blind. Rechargeable batteries included.

Plano Rustrictor AW2 Gun/Equipment Cases

2021 Father's Day Gift Guide
Plano Rustrictor AW2 Gun Case

There are a lot of hard gun cases on the market that protect firearms from damage, but what about rust? Corrosion is a much bigger threat, particularly when you’re traveling from the hunting grounds, which are likely wet and dirty, to home. Plano infuses a Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor to the polymer of its entire line of Rustrictor cases. They also fit them with a rust-defying foam insert that emits VCI for long-lasting protection. Of course, the hard polymer case is extremely durable, too, with a 360-degree O-ring seal and dual-stage locking latches. Interior foam can be customized to cradle the contents in secure protection. Available in single- and multi-gun pistol and rifle/shotgun models.

Hi Mountain Seasonings Outdoorsman Bundle

You’ve seen our very own David Draper use the Hi Mountain Seasonings time and time again on Fare Game episodes, and there’s a reason why. The folks at Hi Mountain understand game meat. Don’t try your grocery store streak rub on your hard-earned moose, elk or deer meat. Instead, enhance those bold, wild flavors with seasonings from the Outdoorsmen Bundle. The set includes a venison rub, a garlic pepper rub, a hickory burger western style seasoning, a deer steak western style seasoning and a brown sugar brine. Gift this set to Dad and stand clear of him and his grill.

ALPS OutdoorZ Impulse Hunting Pack

2021 Father's Day Gift Guide
Alps OutdoorZ Impulse Hunting Pack

Some do-all daypacks are too big. Some are too small. But the ALPS OutdoorZ Impulse, at 1,850 square inches, is just right. The wide, fold-down top secures in place via silent magnets and offers unhindered access to the main compartment. The pack features a square base so it sits up or can be hung from a tree via the carry handle. Its fleece exterior is quiet and backed by a soft fabric that’s also noise-free when contents are moved around as you dig for that last Snickers bar. 

$150 |

With the Dual Shoulder Mount bracket, hanging just one piece of hardware will allow you to show off 2 mounts. And don’t worry about weight, Skull Hooker has a mount that even hold those big bull elk or moose.
