1. A Compound Bow Case

Bowhunters cherish their bows, so give them a high-quality bow case that will protect it for a lifetime. Pelican offers all types of hard cases with tons of convenient, durable features. For starters, they’re made of Pelican’s trademark Air construction HPX® resin that rebounds without breaking and is completely crushproof. This lightweight resin also makes them great for travel, minimizing baggage check expenses. Plus, the interior offers a modular storage system that allows a custom configuration to keep bows, arrows and accessory kits.

One well-respected bow case model is the Pelican Air 1745 bow case. The Pelican Air 1745 offers all the same features, such as Pelican™ Air case construction, making it up to 40 percent lighter than the competition. In addition, the exterior also features six heavy-duty, push button latches (with two TSA approved locking latches), four stainless steel lock hasps and smooth gliding wheels that allow for easy transit. It’s a truly amazing compound bow case.

2. Extra Arrows

A bowhunter could always use some new arrows. Whether they’ve been lost or broken over the years, help them restock their supply. Not sure what kind of arrows they prefer? Sneak off with one of their existing arrows and bring it to a local archery shop – they’ll help you out! They might even be able to offer you extra advice on some other gifts for bowhunters.

3. Upgraded Sight, Arrow Rest or Release Aid

Aside from arrows, your bowhunter recipient might be able to use a new arrow rest. But this is just one of the many bowhunting accessories that could use an upgrade. They might also need a new sight or a new release aid as well. Bow manufacturers are constantly making more technologically advanced products, giving hunters a more accurate aim and, overall, more durable bowhunting gear.

4. Bow Repair Kit

Accidents happen and bows can become less than ideal to hunt with. But when a bowhunter is not prepared, it can set them back and ruin a hunting experience entirely. That’s why it pays to carry a few basic tools and materials to help repair a bow, arrows and any accessories.

As a thoughtful gift, you can put together a bow repair kit yourself that they can take along with them on their next hunt. Again, speak to an archery shop and show them the list of items you need. They can do the footwork for you and show you multiple options.

5. Turkey Calls or Hog Calls

Many bowhunters prefer to hunt turkey and feral hogs. But first, they have to draw them out by making some sort of distress call. There are lots of handheld turkey calls to get a tom’s attention and even electronic hog callers that have a convincing baby piglet squeal to draw out a sow. Give your bowhunter the caller early so they have time to practice!

6. Bowfishing Kit

When the hunting season slows in the summer months, bowfishing can offer some enjoyment out on the water. And did you know you can convert any bow into a fishing rig? Give a hunter a fish and you feed them for a day, but give them a bowfishing kit and they’ll feed themselves all summer long. Seek out a bowfishing kit that includes a bowfishing arrow, reel and line. You can give them a dedicated bowfishing bow if they are particular about their main hunting bow.

7. Archery Lessons

Every good bowhunter needs to brush up on their skills. If your bowhunter is a beginner and just getting into the sport, buy them a few archery lessons so they can hone their technique and perfect their aim.

8. Targets

Speaking of perfecting their aim, targets are a great way to gain practice right in their own backyard. Give them some classic bullseye or even a 3D target of their favorite game animal. It’s a nice, practical gift for both novice and seasoned bowhunters!

9. Custom Bow Strings

Most bows require new strings every year or so. Beat them to the punch and get them custom strings so they can stand out. There are many advantages to custom bow strings, such as improved accuracy. Plus, there’s a wide array of colors! Hopefully, you have your sight locked on a few gift ideas for your bowhunter family member or friend. Whether you go for something practical like archery lessons or a bow repair kit or aim for something more custom-made, we promise that they’re going to love it!
