Rage Hypodermic Trypan NC Broadhead ($41.99)
Most big game bowhunters constantly buy broadheads, so you can’t go wrong with the 100-grain Rage Hypodermic Trypan NC broadhead. It features a hypodermic tip and two razor-sharp, stainless-steel blades to give bowhunters a hefty 2-inch cutting diameter and plenty of confidence when they release their arrow.

Reconyx HF2XC HyperFire 2 Cellular Covert IR Game Camera ($599.99)
Are you tired of your friend or family member complaining about putting scent in the woods just to check their game camera? Put an end to the grumbling when you put the Reconyx HF2XC HyperFire 2 Cellular Covert IR Camera under the tree. They’ll say goodbye to unnecessary trips to the woods because this camera is 4G LTE Cellular enabled, allowing them to receive images from the camera from almost anywhere in the world through the Reconyx mobile app. The data plan starts at $5 per month and is offered direct through Reconyx. The American-made camera produces sharp, high-definition day and night images, and has a battery life of 50,000 images or one year! It also has a 5-year warranty, can support a 512GB memory card and operates in temperatures ranging from -20° to 120°. It’s worth every penny. This is especially true when these superior trail cams are paired with strategy, like a holistic plan for when and where to hang them and how to conduct a trail camera survey for deer.
Lone Wolf Sit & Climb Combo II Portable Treestand ($449.99)
You can’t (and shouldn’t) confine a hunter to one property – or one place on their property. Give them power and freedom with the Lone Wolf Sit & Climb Combo II Treestand. The portable climbing stand weighs 20 pounds, can support 300 pounds and has a large 30- by 19.5-inch standing platform. It’s comfortable and easy to operate for young hunters and the young at heart. Don’t believe us? Read Lone Wolf’s online testimonials. Chris R. said it’s “Absolutely dead silent in the tree. Extremely lightweight. Incredibly easy to hang. Feels rock solid when hung.” And if the hunter receiving this gift is uncertain about treestand placement, we pinpoint high-percentage setups for each phase of deer season.

It’s ideal for all wilderness outings, including picnics and days at the lake, because it can easily fit on a four-wheeler or in the back of a loaded truck bed.
