HUNTING's Manliest Father's Day Gifts 

HUNTING's Manliest Father's Day Gifts 

Men are simple. Strip us down to our basic needs and we're really incomplex. We all LOVE bacon. We all love a good campfire. We all hate shopping. We don't use shallow new-age tools like Pinterest to get ideas for what to build or make or do or wear — we use our natural, testosterone-infused instincts to craft our masculinity.

Those instincts, of course, can be traced back to the lessons of our fathers — the men who gave us "the talk," taught us how to cut a steak and change a tire.

This Father's Day, use the intuition dad gave you to get him something manly. A gift that shows him you care, a small token of appreciation for being the original man's man.

To help you get started, we put together a straightforward gift guide that contains absolutely no fluff. Enjoy our manliest Father's Day gifts.


Cabela's Alaskan Guide 150-qt. Cooler

You'll hear this a lot when it comes to manly products...it has to be tough. This one is no different. Cabela's Alaskan Guide Coolers are manufactured with double-wall construction and Ecomate foam work with a .625-inch-thick rubber gasket and insulated lid to chill stuff for days. Molded-in hinges and brass latching system ensure a tight seal and it can hold up to 150 12-ounce cans. Tough is an understatement here.

Price: $499.99

Beard Pack Men's Grooming Kit

This grooming kit is a must for the bearded dad. Big beard oil, mustache wax and whisker wash ensure your dad's beard is ready for the outdoors and doesn't come back full of the crusty leftovers from lunch. Thanks to the Duck Dynasty boys, beards are in, so if your dad doesn't already have one, buy him this kit in hopes he joins the manly trend.

Price: $39.99

Cabela's Euro Binoculars

Every man needs a good binocular. That doesn't mean your dad needs the most expensive, German-made glass on the market. He needs something tough, reliable and classic. Cabela's Euro HD binos fit that bill. This offering is housed in an ergonomically designed aluminum-alloy body with a rugged layer of textured rubber armor to reduce carry weight and protect it from rough use. Each pair is completely nitrogen-purged, sealed and guaranteed to be fogproof and waterproof as long as your dad carries them.

Price: $999.99

Camp Chef Outdoor Oven

Daughters have easy bake ovens and dads have the Camp Chef Outdoor Oven. Unleash 18,000 BTUs of portable cooking power with this combo stovetop and oven, and you'll have bacon and brats sizzling in the middle of nowhere whenever you're in need. The oven produces temperatures of 400 degrees and is powered by one disposable can of propane which can keep things cooking for up to five hours.

Price: $302.08

Leatherman OHT

Leatherman's new OHT (One-Hand Tool) features slide-out, spring-loaded pliers and eight separate tools — two knife blades, four screwdrivers, a saw blade, and a belt cutter/gut-hook. That's really nothing totally new for a multi-tool but here's what is: It's all deployable using only one hand. That's an innovation that most tool makers can't claim. The tool also has replaceable 154CM wire-cutters, comes with a nylon molle sheath, and will be offered in black or Coyote Tan Cerakote.

Price: $82

The Alphabet of Manliness

The Alphabet of Manliness has been called the "Bible of Manhood," and it's hard for us to disagree. Internet sensation and one name wonder Maddox penned this satirical look at the world of men. In it he teaches us how to properly dropkick someone in the face and, more importantly, how to keep our ladies happy. Surely, your dad could use this guide, but if he's already at the height of manliness, he'll still get a few laughs from this literary gem.

Price: $11.99 (paperback)

Wetterlings Back Country Hatchet

The Backcountry Hatchet is a 1.5-pound Swedish carbon alloy steel head combined with 16 inches of American hickory makes you want to just chop something down. Match a flannel shirt and beard with this piece of cutlery and your dad will be rolling toward the timber Paul Bunyon-style. Don't skimp and go with the bargain basement hatchet from the big box store, pick this one up for dad and he'll be the first one to make use of the fireplace this winter.

Price: $115.95

USFA ZiP .22

The USFA ZiP .22 is everything a man could want. It's got .22LR firepower and it fits easily in a backpack, truck or cargo pocket, and is a great lightweight survival gun — it's comprised of mainly polymer and weighs only 15.5 ounces unloaded. We picture the American version of James Bond being happy to tote around this little wonder...and we're sure your dad will feel like a manlier version of Sean Connery with the ZiP.

Price: $199.99

Baconnaise

Baconnaise, they say, is the ultimate bacon-flavored spread. But how do you properly describe the pioneering awesomeness of this particular product? It's like manifest destiny in a jar, the perfect gift for a dad that wants to make a statement.

Price: $5.99 (single jar)
