Father’s Day Gifts Under $50
Turkey season has come to an end and it’s time to display those trophies! The Turkey Beard Hanger is perfect for displaying all of the turkey beards that the Father in your life has collected through the years. This is a product that you’re going to want to buy a bunch of, so I recommend picking up a few 3-packs. They’re quick and easy to use, creating a beautiful display for the mancave, and come in several great colors too. Use Coupon Code: HGD20 for a 20% off discount at checkout!
Not your ordinary socks. Darn Tough Socks actually come with a lifetime warranty. Made with Merino wool, the hunter sock will help regulate temperature and moisture regardless of the season, and the 18″ length is perfect for a set of hunting boots. Best of all, Merino is a natural odor killer and they can be worn multiple days in a row. Check out our comparison review of the best Merino hunting socks. Darn Tough has a wide variety of options for a gift that will last a lifetime. Darn Tough has a gift guide of their own that you might want to check out.
While supplies last, you can pick up the BOG Clandestine Black Flash Game Camera – 18MP trail camera for only $39.99! That’s a savings of $180! This is crazy. Crazy enough that I went ahead and ordered ten for myself. That’s only $449.20 delivered to my door! And to think, the original retail price of these trail cameras is $219.95. I don’t know why they’re priced this low but I didn’t hesitate to upgrade my non-cellular trail cameras at this price.
Here’s a gift that everyone can benefit from, including the person buying it! The Thermacell Radius Zone Mosquito Repellent – Gen 2.0 is perfect for many outdoor activities to keep those pesky mosquitoes away. The Radius Zone will protect approximately 110 square feet in diameter and they really work. It can be used all summer long for hunting, fishing, camping, or just hanging out in the backyard. Check out our Thermacell Radius Zone 2.0 review for more info.
Natchez Shooting and Outdoorz has discounted the Bushnell Banner II 3-9×40 BDC Reticle with Weaver Rings to only $49.99! This is not a refurbished riflescope, it’s brand new and the best price I’ve ever seen on this particular scope and I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up a couple of extras at this price. This is 50% below retail.
Arctic Shield Boot Insulators are a great investment for the hunter! Simply slide them over top of your boots after reaching your destination and they’ll keep your feet warm all day! For added warmth, throw in some hot hands and you’re ready to take on whatever Mother Nature throws your way. This product has saved me a lot of money on cold weather boots and kept me in the woods longer, increasing my success rate. In fact, I was wearing them when I killed my Ohio buck this past January! Blaine’s Farm & Fleet is my go-to place usually (see link above) but many online retailers carry them. Use the search bar on our website to find the most recent deal on ArcticShiled Boot Insulators because it’s easy to over-pay. I buy them for around $30, the average is around $40, but I’ve seen them listed for $49.99 in several places recently.

Is the person you’re buying a gift for a girll master? Then be sure to check out Grill Master’s Club too. HuntChef and Grill Master’s Club isn’t related but are both great options for dad’s that like to grill.
Trail Camera Accessories
What kind of a gift are batteries? For hunters, it’s an awesome gift! Most trail cameras run on AA batteries and there’s no doubt that Energizer Lithium AA batteries are the best. Not only will they last longer, but they’ll save time, money, and effort in the field. Plus, who doesn’t need a few extra AA batteries lying around the house? The link in the title will take you Amazon, but if you have a Sam’s Club membership try this link to save more.
Speaking of trail cameras and trail camera accessories, you can never have enough SD cards. Buying online will save you a ton of money, especially if you pick up this five pack of 16 GB SD cards. SD cards are needed for trail cameras and it’s always a good idea to have several extras at your disposal.
Nothing is more frustrating than going to check a trail camera and it’s missing. Most trail cameras are designed to use Python locks to secure them. They are a great way to protect Dad’s trail cams and his sanity.
Father’s Day Gifts $50 to $100
Hunting Boots – Lacrosse Boots and/or LiteBoots
Dad needs new hunting boots and I have two great options and both have unique features that set them apart from one another. The LiteBoots are priced around $90 and are the lightest hunting boot on the market in their class. They’re made from a Croc-like material. These boots aren’t for everyone but they’re certainly unique. The other option is a classic that you can’t go wrong with. EuroOptic currently has the Lacrosse Alpha Lite 16″ 5mm Neoprene Boot is on sale for only $59.99! These waterproof slip-on boots are a must-have at this price.
Every turkey hunter knows the importance of quality decoys and it’s amazing how expensive high-end turkey decoys can be. However, the Miss Purrfect XD Turkey Hen Decoy is the perfect compromise for the run-and-gun turkey hunter. It’s lightweight and packs up extremely compact to fit inside your turkey vest. When deployed, the decoy springs into shape and slides over the two-piece stake, ready for action. I had the chance to use the Purrfect Pair XD Turkey Decoys this past hunting season and fell in love with them. I fully recommend springing for the pair (both jake and hen decoys) but if your goal is to be under $100, then go with the single hen decoy.
Guys love knives and there is always a new style to try out. It’s also a gift that can last generations. One of the best places to buy a new knife at a great price is Smokey Mountain Knife Works. You’ll find a great selection of high-quality knives from top brands like Benchmade, Case XX, Browning, Kershaw, and more. You can’t go wrong with a foldable pocket knife from Case XX, but if you really want to impress, go for the Benchmade.
Update: I found a great deal on The Puck from Lockdown at Academy Sports. You can pick on up for only $69.99 while supplies last! Protect your investment The Puck from Lockdown. The Lockdown Puck is a state-of-the-art monitoring and security device that provides true peace of mind with real-time notifications and control using the free Lockdown Logic App. Put it in your gun safe or vault to track temperature and humidity, movement, or when the door is opened all from the palm of your hand.

Dad needs clothes, so why not buy him his new favorite shirt? Duckworth makes some of the best high-end Merino wool clothes on the market. The moisture-wicking capabilities of Merino wool make it an essential garment for the warm weather hunter and Duckworth makes an assortment of great-looking casual clothing that can be substituted for base layers during hunting season.
Father’s Day Gifts $100 to $250
Vortex Optics Crossfire HD 1400 Laser Rangefinder – Only $149.99
The original retail price of this site is $269.99 but Natchez has it on sale for only $149.99. This would be a perfect gift for Father’s Day that could be utilized during the hunt or on the golf course. Not only is this a great deal (while supplies last) but it’s a great gift that Dad’s going to love!
Did you know you can buy customized broadheads? Neither did I until just a few days ago when I ran across the customization section that’s available from Iron Will Outfitters. Iron Will makes some of the sharpest single and double bevel broadheads on the market that are designed for big game animals like elk, bear, and moose, and they’re equally effective on whitetail deer!
They’re not cheap by any means, but this will be the coolest gift you can get the hardcore hunter that you call Dad this year!
All the features of the name brand at half the cost, and it looks just as good with 4 colors to choose from. This RTIC 65-quart cooler is the perfect size for any renaissance man: Big enough to hold a quartered deer or a limit of fish, yet small enough to fill with ice and drinks, and throw in the truck for tailgating and camping.
RTIC Coolers are often considered the Best Value in the high-end cooler market, just a lot cheaper. Check out the results of our first Head-to-Head cooler test.
This isn’t the most exciting gift on this list but it could be the most important. Whether dad is going on a backcountry hunting trip or you’re loading up the family boat for a weekend of fun. MyMedic has the perfect first-aid kit for the job. These are the best first-aid kits that I’ve ever used as each item is labeled and individually wrapped to last!
The CanCooker is perfect for the dad who likes to cook. Whether he’s grilling out back or cooking for a crew on the next camping trip, the original CanCooker is a great gift idea. The non-stick coating makes clean-up a breeze and the power of cooking with steam is harnessed in this unique design to create a delicious meal, each and every time. Might as well go ahead and buy yourself some crab legs or lobster because you’re going to want to see the results of the CanCooker for yourself!
Check out our user-submitted gear review of the CanCooker Jr. It’s just like the Original CanCooker, just smaller in size.
Have you ever heard of the Right to Bear? Whether you are a concealed weapon holder or just a responsible gun owner. This insurance policy is designed to protect your freedom, your family, and you. Right to Bear does not condone unnecessary or excessive force or illegal acts of aggression, they simply protect you from personal liability when you have no choice! Remember the Kyle Rittenhouse trial?

Caldwell Claymore Clay Target Thrower – $249.99
This one is for me just in case my wife is reading this! I first saw the Caldwell Claymore at SHOT Show and fell in love with it. It has a foot-activated clay pigeon thrower that automatically feeds clays. The Caldwell Claymore Clay Target Thrower will throw a clay pigeon up to 70 yards and really quickly too. From what I remember, it’ll throw clay just as quickly as you can actuate the step thrower. Natchez has it on sale for $249.99, which is $30 below their listed price and $50 below MSRP.
Father’s Day Gifts $250 or More
Here’s a product that’s worth the investment, the Bone-Dri Rust Prevention Dual Rifle Case. This soft-sided case actually absorbs moisture, helping to keep your firearms safe when in the case. I had the chance to test it out this year and it’s worth the investment. I’ve used it for electronics and other wet items, as well as my trusted rifle or shotgun after a soggy hunt. Here’s my review of the Bone-Dri Rust Prevention Dual Rifle Case.
A new set of custom seat covers are perfect for the hunting dad who takes pride in his truck. Shear Comfort Seat Covers has a wide variety of styles and colors including Kryptek, Realtree, and Mossy Oak camo. They have custom designs for a huge selection of vehicles. You can save up to 20% in their Spring Sale with prices starting at $219.
The Scentcrusher Locker storage closet is not only a one-stop shop for organizing your hunting clothing, boots, and accessories, but more importantly, the built-in Ozone generator kills and eliminates odor-causing bacteria. Ozone has been scientifically proven to destroy odors and is used in a variety of industries for this purpose. The Locker looks great and would be an excellent addition to any man cave, trophy room, or garage!
Check out our user-submitted gear review of The Locker from Scent Crusher.
If you’re feeling extra giving this year, splurge on a new set of binos from Maven. The B1.2 Binoculars stacks up with the most celebrated and expensive binoculars in the world, at a fraction of the cost. These sportsman-inspired designs paired with the best available materials and state-of-the-art technology, create an uncompromising optic. At $950, they’re not cheap but this is a great way to show Dad how much you love him! Available in an 8x or 10x magnification. You can even customize these binoculars as well!
OK, so this is one’s quite a bit over the $250 mark and should be reserved for the most awesome dads ever, or maybe just dads that you need a good bribe. The ATN X-Sight 4K Pro 3-14x is an affordable option to get into nighttime predator hunting. Hunting hogs and/or predators at night is probably the most fun a hunter can legally have during the summer months. It’s also a solid investment to prepare for the coming apocalypse.
Check out our review of the ATN X-Sight 4K Pro 3-14x Riflescope.
Give the gift of GRILL this Father’s Day. Camp Chef has a huge line-up of high-quality grills that you both will love. Whether you’re looking for a pellet grill, smoker, portable grill, or flat (Hibachi-style) grill, Camp Chef has a huge selection to choose from. You can splurge on one of the feature-rich Woodwind grills, or pick up one of the more portable grills that are perfect for camping.
For more information on Camp Chef grills, check out a couple of our user-submitted gear reviews.
Hunting Clothes – KUIU and Sitka Gear
There’s no better gift to give than high-quality hunting gear that’s built to last. People often turn their nose up to high-priced hunting camo from brands like KUIU and Sitka Gear, unless they’ve worn it before. I’ve been wearing Sitka Gear for nearly 15 years and I don’t regret purchasing a single piece of gear (and I own a bunch). Sizing is typically more of an athletic fit, so keep that in mind when ordering clothes.
If you have read through this entire Father’s Day Gift Guide and still don’t have any great gift ideas, then it’s nearly hopeless. My final suggestion is freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Seriously. Who doesn’t like those?
