Stumped on gift ideas for family members who enjoy hunting? Don’t don the camo and go spying on them just yet. Let Pelican help guide your aim and hit your mark with a truly awesome gift. Here are nine gift ideas for hunters that they are sure to appreciate and get tons of use out of.
If you’re looking for a stellar gift, a gun case is where it’s at. And Pelican offers a variety of options to suit every hunter’s needs. A high-quality gun case can protect their investment and keep a gun lasting many lifetimes. It’s also worth noting that all of Pelican’s gun cases are guaranteed for life, made in the United States and engineered using the finest components.
Pelican rifle cases offer features such as a high-impact polymer that can protect their firearm during travels on the road or air. Not only are they crushproof, but many are weather-resistant and even dustproof, keeping your rifle and equipment clean. Our gun cases also offer convenient touches like stainless steel lock hasps that provide extra security during transport and heavy-duty, ergonomic handles.
Aside from a gun case, another super-useful gift for hunters is an ammo case. Pelican ammo cases are designed with all sorts of convenient features, such as rubberized protective bumpers to protect against hard drops and a watertight case that prevents water, dirt, snow and dust particles from damaging ammo or shells. In fact, many of Pelican’s ammo cases are entirely waterproof up to a depth of two meters for up to 30 minutes.
Decoys come in handy for many hunters (especially turkey hunters). With a decoy, hunters can attract the animal to their position and get a better shot. There are decoys for nearly every type of hunting game out there, from turkey to duck and more.
An oldie but a goodie, a hunter can always use some more camo clothing so they blend in with their surroundings. Just make sure to get them the right camo colors. The landscape can be drastically different for hunters, depending on whether they hunt in fields or thick brush.
Hunting vests, complete with lots of pockets and reflective straps, make wonderfully practical gift ideas for hunters. It can keep everything easily accessible, like shotgun shells or ammo. Look for hunting vests with features such as gear loops, shooting patches and built-in carabiners.
Cold weather can be hard on a hunter’s hands, especially when they need to keep a trigger finger ready to go. But most gloves are too bulky for the situation. Instead, consider gifting them a pair of tactical gloves with features like unencumbered trigger fingers and grippy materials that allow them to hold their weapon securely.
Trail cameras can help hunters spy on an animal's activities and patterns. Whether they’re deer active during the day or nocturnal feral hogs, a trail camera can keep a close watch on migratory patterns and even snap photos. Some of the best hunting trail cameras are printed in camo so you can easily mount it on a tree.
One practical gift for hunters is a ground blind that allows them to camouflage themselves into the surroundings. While many animals have an acute sense of smell, others have sharp eyesight and can spot the most subtle movements. That’s where a ground blind comes in super handy! Choose a lightweight ground blind that allows them to set up near trails and natural funnels that don’t otherwise give them cover.
Whatever game your hunter enjoys hunting, give them a call that can draw them out. Whether it's to attract deer, ducks, turkey, elk or feral hogs, there’s a call for everything! Give them a call early before the season begins so they can get practice before using it in the field.
Hopefully, this has given you some great gift ideas for the avid hunter in your life. So put away that camo – Pelican has you covered instead! From our own highly reputable gun cases and ammo cases to hunting essentials like hunting vests to fun gadgets like camo trail cameras, there’s something that every hunter can use and enjoy to have a successful hunt.
