HGG-ribbon-2015-hunting

If you're wanting to impress your hunter this holiday season, then give them quality gear that will make an impression next hunting season.

These products come highly recommended from our staff, who feel that being a hunter is synonymous with being a gear freak. There's something for everybody: whether you're looking to stuff a stocking or have the biggest box under the tree.

Browning | Recon Force Trail Camera

The Recon Force simply excels at everything. With amazing nighttime pictures and lightning fast trigger speed, it makes for a tool that every hunter should have. The Recon takes 10 mp pictures and full HD video, boasting some of the clearest imagery on the market.

CamelBak | All Clear Bottle

CamelBak All Clear utilizes proven UV technology to effectively neutralize microbiological contaminants to EPA standards. With a built-in LCD to confirm your results, purification has never been easier. Since CamelBak All Clear is a water bottle as well as a purification system, you can enjoy your water right after treatment or carry it with you.

Barnett | Cobra Slingshot

The Barnett 16043 Cobra Slingshot is designed to offer revolutionizing performance to hit your targets. It features a unique combination of front stabilizer and sighting system, which makes it absolutely accurate and fun to use. This hunting slingshot has an extended detachable wrist brace for added strength and stability.

Carhartt | Duck Dog Bed

Carhartt is known for durable, high quality gear. Their line of products for the hardworking dog is no different. These beds are made from the same tough-as-nails 12-ounce duck cloth as Carhartt jackets - they're durable, comfortable, and easily washable. Your canine will definitely thank you.

Leatherman | OHT Multi-Tool

This industry-first OHT Tool features spring-loaded pliers and wire-cutters so you don't tire your hand adjusting and readjusting your grip. Handles with visual imprints of the tool beneath also make for quick identification. Whether you carry this with you to the gun range or up a mountain, it'll prove to be worth it's weight in gold.

Kuiu | Mountain Star Ultralight 2P Tent

KUIU's Mountain Star 2P Tent is designed specifically for mountain hunters passionate about reducing weight without giving up functionality. Featuring a double intersecting pole design with a horizontal roof truss, this unique design maximizes stability and increases structural integrity in the wind. At just over 3 lbs, it can literally go anywhere.

Gerber | Myth E-Z Open

Built with a lightweight body directly molded onto the full tang stainless steel blade, the E-z Open is the ideal tool for long, clean upward cuts. A hard plastic ball overmold tip ensures that you never puncture your game or yourself. Created with quick field dressing in mind, the E-z Open comes sheathed in a durable hard plastic case complete with a built-in carbide sharpener for sharpening on the go.

Nomad | Neck Gator

This Nomad Neck Gaitor not only provides superior breathability without fogging up your optics, but it also protects you from the sun and cold. The key to this is the material's hydrophobic, or 'water-hating' chemical quality within the microfibers of the fabric. These microfibers transport sweat to drier areas — from the skin to the exterior of the clothing where it can evaporate more easily.

Savage Arms | Axis XP Camo

The Savage Axis XP, formerly the Savage Edge, is rated best-in-class among entry level rifles. The modern design of the Axis XP features silky smooth bolt operation, a detachable box magazine, dual pillar bedding, a composite stock, a free-floating barrel with a sporter taper, a matte black metal finish, and a two-position safety.

Bushnell | Tripod/Car Window Mount

This compact Bushnell Tripod is small enough to slip into any hunting bag. It's sure to come in handy when your spotting scope, binoculars or camera need some extra stability. The mini tripod also can be converted to a vehicle window mount, making it a great accessory to stash in your truck.

Benelli | ETHOS 20 Gauge

The ETHOS 20 gauge is a sub-gauge extension to Benelli's line of elegant semiautomatic shotguns which reflect the company's commitment to innovation, refinement and design superiority. Built around the reliable and low-maintenance Inertia Driven System, the ETHOS 20 gauge handles light loads delivering improved ergonomics and striking good looks in an all-around upland gun.

3M | Peltor Sport RangeGuard

For hunters who demand high performance and precision, the Peltor Sport RangeGuard Electronic Hearing Protector is the ideal choice. Advanced electronics and external microphones help suppress harmful gunshot noise while allowing your hunter to hear conversations, commands and their surroundings.

Stoeger | M3500

The affordable M3500 shotgun from Stoeger is the perfect choice for waterfowl, turkey and upland hunters who demand versatility, value and rock-solid reliability. The 3 1/2-inch Inertia Driven semi-auto is available in three different finishes and barrel lengths, each delivering fast, reliable operating systems, quick targeting acquisition and magnum performance.
