The Updated Father’s Day Gift Guide for Hunters
At the start of each summer, it’s nice to take some time and celebrate Father’s Day. Whether you’re thinking of your own biological father, someone who has become a father figure to you (e.g., step-dad, etc.), or the father of your children, celebrating Father’s Day is a great way to show your appreciation to them. And for many hunters, it was likely our fathers who introduced us to the Great Outdoors when we were younger. Many people have fond memories of hunting with dad, more years back than we care to admit. So if this describes you and you want to show that dad in your life a little appreciation, here’s a 2022 Father’s Day gift guide to help you find something special.
Father’s Day Gift Guide 2022
Dads love you regardless of whether you give them gifts, but there are some classic Father’s Day gifts that you can never go wrong with.
- Whitetail Leather Patch Hat
You can never have too many hats. If the dad in your life is due for a replacement or could just use something new, consider the whitetail leather patch hat. It features a breathable mesh back to help your head stay cool. It also sports a high-quality leather patch on the front, branded with a whitetail buck and stitched to the front. If he’s more of a turkey hunter, consider the turkey patch hat too. Again, you can never go wrong with hats.
- Groove Life Belt – Realtree Edge
Belts are another happily-welcomed gift for Father’s Day. The Groove Life Belt is a tactical belt and is constructed from a durable webbing material that stretches just enough but keeps your pants and accessories right where they should be. It is designed with the Realtree EDGE Camo pattern so it can blend in well while hunting or while hanging out around home. The buckle is engineered from high-strength neodymium magnets and A380 aluminum alloy, and it features the Bone Collector logo or an American flag and BC logo combo (Patriot). The magnets snap together and stay together – no fussing with them popping apart.
- Hooray Open Fire Grill
A very safe assumption for any Father’s Day gift guide is to include some kind of grilling-related items. Dads love to grill wild game, right? This one is a pretty big splurge for most people, but if your dad’s deserving and you’ve got a healthy budget to upgrade your outdoor grill, this is a premium choice that will go down in Father’s Day gift-giving history!
The Hooray open fire grill is everything you need to prepare delicious outdoor meals and leave an impression with your family and friends too. The 19.5” x 40” cooking surface offers plenty of room to grill a healthy amount of food, and the grill comes with an electric rotisserie unit to roast another 80 pounds of meat above the grill surface. The grate can easily be adjusted up or down with one hand using the large flywheel on the top. The heavy-gauge steel construction, industry-leading paint (to eliminate rust and corrosion), and aluminum non-rusting wheels mean this grill will last a long time. And best of all, this grill is still small enough (despite all the crazy features mentioned above) that you can use it in a small backyard space or move it around on its heavy-duty rolling casters.
- Walnut Cutting Board
While we’re on the topic of grilling, another thing that belongs on an outdoor chef’s Father’s Day gift guide is a quality cutting board. This solid walnut cutting board fits the bill. The 10.5” x 17.5” surface is large enough to cut most foods for your dinner table and includes one side for meats with a juice groove cut into it, while the other side can be used for fruits or vegetables. As mentioned, the cutting board is cut from one solid piece of American walnut, and it is pre-seasoned with food-grade oil. With the beautiful finish, it would make a great serving platter on the table too.
- Stars and Stripes Hoodie
This comfortable, classic fit hoodie is a great Father’s Day gift for dad whether he wants to stay warm on a cool fall day outdoors or just while being lazy around the house. The Stars and Stripes hoodie includes the Bone Collector logo in red, white, and blue stars and stripes. It is made from a Gildan heavy blend of 50% cotton/50% polyester and has a preshrunk fleece knit. The double-lined hood will keep your head warm when drawn, and the double-needle stitching makes the garment very durable.
- Custom Leather Slings
For a truly special Father’s Day gift (assuming he’s a turkey or deer hunter), consider getting a custom leather gun sling. Using high-quality leather and a variety of different stains (black, chestnut, light brown, and two-tone), we can create a truly unique-looking gun sling that you can further customize by adding your dad’s name or your family’s last name. There are also other design elements, such as borders, that you can add to the sling to make a one-of-a-kind present that the dad in your life will never forget. In fact, if you take good care of it, it will last beyond his life and be handed down to the next generation as a family heirloom. This one may even bring tears to his eyes.
- Bone Collector 20L Cooler
It’s the beginning of summer, and that means a lot more time outdoors trying to enjoy the lake or going to backyard barbeques – and you know you are going to need to keep some beverages cold. Just like with tumblers, you need a quality cooler if you want to keep the contents cold for a significant amount of time. The Bone Collector 20L Cooler is a great example of that. This 20 Liter (22 quarts) cooler is built to last with quality components and has a 7-year warranty on its construction. The rotomolded design has closed-cell foam insulation to keep your ice longer, and this convenient and highly portable size comes with a durable handle.
- Bone Collector X Pop Hat
If the dad in your life likes wide-brimmed hats to keep that hot summer sun out of his face and off his neck, you can’t go wrong with the Bone Collector X Pop Hat. It is very portable while traveling and packs down into a 6-inch circle, yet pops back up into the full-size hat with just a flick of your hand. It is constructed with weathered cotton-poly (30% cotton/70% polyester) and has a ventilated mesh material to keep your head cool. It’s designed to fit most heads with a drawstring and comes in several different colors/patterns to suit your dad’s preferences.
- Leather Coasters – 4 Pack
This Father’s Day gift guide would be lacking if we didn’t at least mention gifts for a man cave, and these leather coasters are a pretty awesome addition. They come in a pack of 4 coasters and are constructed from full-grain 9-ounce leather in our Alabama Leather shop. They are heat resistant (for hot mugs of coffee) but work great for cold beverages too. Because leather accepts stains differently, each one is unique and adds a great manly element to any Father’s man cave.
