Black Friday and Cyber Monday are gone like a downwind buck. But if you’re still hunting for a great holiday gift for that special hunter in your life, here are some solid options.

HuntStand Pro. For only $29.99/year, enjoy the most full-featured, cost-effective hunting app on the market. Upgrading to HuntStand Pro (use discount code GIFTGUIDE2021 to receive 20% off) adds some truly amazing features and tools including Real 3D: All of your markers, lines, and shapes will conform perfectly to the 3D base map, allowing you to understand the topography of your Hunt Area like never before. Property Boundaries: Unlimited nationwide property info including boundaries, owner names, property size, and property perimeter. Hunting Land: Expand your awareness of huntable land everywhere with our nationwide database of publicly accessible hunting land. You also get multiple satellite base layers, detailed weather information, wholistic trail camera photo management, (with heatmaps to indicate game activity) a streamlined stand reservation system, advanced map creation and sharing capabilities, a premium high-resolution map printing service, and much more.LaCrosse Aerohead Sport. A thoughtful gift all sportsmen can use, the AeroHead Sport ($190-$210) completely changes what a rubber hunting boot can be by replacing the rubber shell with one made of extremely durable, lightweight and insulating polyurethane. Designed for optimal fit and flexibility, the waterproof AeroHead Sport is built for ultimate comfort and will keep hunters light on their feet. Its Brush Tuff material stands up to unforgiving brush and briers while an abrasion resistant shin guard offers extra protection without added bulk.Mathews V3X 29 & V3X 33 Compounds. Mathews new-for-2022 flagship hunting compound is the V3X (starting at $1,199), offering several exciting innovations centered on truly custom-fit accessories. This exciting new bow, available in 29- or 33-inch axle-to-axle lengths, is equipped with new Bridge-Lock Sight Technology to enhance balance, and patent-pending Stay Afield System (S.A.S) to keep hunters in the field. It’s also built compatible with a completely redesigned line of LowPro Quivers. The V3X 29 has a 6-inch brace height and accommodates draw lengths from 25.5 to 30 inches. The V3X 33 (shown above) has a 6.5-inch brace height with draw lengths ranging from 27 to 31.5 inches. Bridge-Lock Sight Technology allows a dovetail sight to be mounted through the bow’s riser, eliminating the need for an external mounting bracket, for a streamlined profile, improved balance and reduced felt vibration. Several popular brands (including Axcel, Spot Hogg and HHA) fit the dovetail cutout, and Mathews partnered with Axcel to create the BL Fixed 5-pin Sight that allows archers to micro-adjust elevation, windage and each individual .019-inch pin. Mathews is also offering a new solid finish option: Granite (shown above), one of eight solid and camo options.

ALPS OutdoorZ Impulse Pack. This ultra-quiet hunting pack won’t betray your presence when your next trophy is closing in. Featuring a fleece exterior and a suede fabric interior, the full-featured Impulse from ALPS OutdoorZ ($199.99) will keep your movements quiet when reaching for your favorite deer call or adding that extra layer on a crisp fall day. The liner is ALPS’ new Deadquiet fabric; it features outer fleece with a polyester backing and incorporates a membrane between the two fabrics to help keep out moisture. The zipper-less main compartment allows you to access items quietly and easily; a series of magnets and an aluminum hook secures the top lid when needed. Ideal for ground blinds or treestands, the flat-bottom structure allows the pack to stand up independently. Included are an ambidextrous quiver holder, two deep side pockets, a drop-down pocket to carry your gun or bow, a two-piece adjustable waist belt with pockets, and a hydration pocket with two side ports.Pnuma Palisade Puffy Jacket. Here’s a gift they can use right now to ward off winter’s chill on stand, glassing above treeline, or anywhere the next adventure takes them, courtesy of its PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Down Blend. In addition to being lightweight and packable, the Palisade Puffy Jacket ($300) features a durable and water-repellent outer shell, and it’s also quick drying, so you’ll stay warm and dry longer than a regular down jacket could. With YKK Aquaguard zippers, your essential gear is protected from the weather as well. When it’s time to shed a layer, the Palisade has a stuff sack included to compress it down so it will easily fit in your pack.Badlands New Hunting Gear For Women. From base layers to mid layers, outerwear to lifestyle options, the Badlands women’s collection was designed from the ground up for women on the hunt and for everyday life. Included is the popular, mid-season Calor Jacket (top right, $229.99) and Pant that have been redesigned for the women’s line, as well as two new women’s hoodies. The Flex Half-Zip Hoodie (top left, $99.99) features a large kangaroo pocket, and the Detour Hoodie ($139.99) adds a zipper to that pocket and features PrimaLoft insulation for added warmth. The versatile new Lagatha Legging ($139.99) brings the comfort of leggings to the woods and mountains as outerwear, and is still thin enough to wear as a base layer underneath pants. To see the entire new women’s line, all of it covered by Badlands’ Unconditional Lifetime Warranty, Click Here.Outdoor Edge RazorBone. Anyone who hunts would appreciate receiving a RazorBone ($64.95). This innovative design merges big blade performance with folding knife convenience in a compact, lightweight multi-blade set to breakdown the biggest of game fast and easy. Three different blade styles work in unison to field dress, skin, debone and prepare fresh venison into family-size portions, all with one tool that never needs sharpening. The RazorBone Includes three 3.5-inch drop-point blades, two 5.0-inch boning/fillet blades plus a new gutting blade to open game like a zipper, without piercing vital organs. The structured nylon sheath features a divider to store extra blades and houses a blade storage box to pack out all three blades once the job is complete.Rocky Mountain Hunting Calls Cartridge Call 3-Pack. It happens all the time: You’re sitting in the field, not predator hunting, and suddenly a coyote or bobcat comes slinking by out of range of your bow or gun. You try mouth-squeaking the critter into your kill box, but it just doesn’t do the trick. If only you had a predator call in your pocket! The Cartridge Call 3-Pack ($27.95) is the solution. These mouth calls, sized to match three popular predator hunting cartridges (.223 Rem., .22-250 Rem., and .243 Win.), are easy to keep handy on any hunt. You can even attach them to your keychain with a key ring … so unless you lock your keys in your truck, you’ll always have a call handy to collect some bonus fur.Montana Decoy Song Dog Coyote Decoy. As deer seasons wind down, it’s time to start thinking about calling coyotes. Add realism to your setup with the Song Dog Coyote Decoy ($59.99). This lightweight, photorealistic decoy is 2D but comes with a detachable 3D tail to help seal the deal on cautious canines.Leupold VX-3HD Riflescopes. Focus some light on your favorite hunter’s holiday season. Featuring Leupold’s Elite Optical System, the VX-3HD lineup (starting at $499.99) delivers excellent dawn-to-dusk light transmission for a bright image when it matters most, elite-level glare reduction in harsh light, and the resolution and clarity that diehard hunters and shooters demand. Its adjustments deliver match-grade repeatability, and have ergonomic controls that are easy to read and use, even with gloves. The VX-3HD features 13 different magnification ranges (2.5-8×36 shown above) and a variety of objective lens sizes, maintube diameters, elevation adjustment types, and more across the breadth of the line. Like all Leupold riflescopes, the VX-3HD is proudly designed, machined, and assembled in the company’s Beaverton, Ore. factory and guaranteed to perform for life.Trijicon Huron Riflescopes. This premium variable riflescope was developed specifically for the American deer hunter. The Trijicon Huron (starting at $650) is available in four different models including 2.5-10×40, and comes with the high-quality glass, proven precision, and rugged construction you need for bragging rights every season, along with a price that lets you invest heavily in your other hunting gear. Crisp, precise, windage/elevation adjusters require no tools, and capped adjusters ensure no accidental shift. You’ll also find an extra-wide field of view for maximum situational awareness, and uncluttered, easy-to-use reticles for fast and accurate shots.Burris Oracle X Crossbow Scope. The Burris Oracle X ($1,079) makes it easier than ever to aim and shoot your crossbow at all distances. The Oracle X doubles as a laser rangefinder, complete with angle compensation and a digital reticle. Sighting-in the Oracle X is a quick, simple process, and once it’s dialed in you’ll know exactly where to aim with the press of a button. We used this scope to conduct our 2021 HuntStand Crossbow Broadhead Field Test. Springfield Armory Model 2020 Waypoint. Springfield Armory took its storied history of building fine firearms for defense and competition and rolled it into the stunning Model 2020 family of premium American-made bolt-action hunting rifles. The Model 2020 Waypoint shown above (starting at $1,699) is made in the USA and built around the ground-breaking Model 2020 action. It features a premium, hand-painted, carbon fiber stock and the option of a steel or carbon fiber barrel—each boasting a .75 MOA accuracy guarantee. More options include two stock configurations, two finishes (Evergreen & Ridgeline, shown above) and four of today’s best-performing hunting calibers. Available in 6mm CM, 6.5 CM, .308 Win. and 6.5 PRC, each Model 2020 Waypoint is built to deliver the accuracy and performance you should demand from a custom-grade rifle.Winchester XPR Bolt-Action Rifle. Here’s a thoughtful gift that won’t break the bank. The XPR is a rugged, reliable and precise bolt-action rifle built to stand up to the abuse you put yourself through in the field. Combining proven concepts from the Model 70 with more efficient manufacturing processes means that the XPR, available in 16 calibers ($569.99), is designed to be a superb hunting rifle at a more affordable price. The advanced polymer stock is built for superior grip in wet conditions and will stand up to tough hunting. The matte blued finish is tough and non-reflective. The detachable box magazine is a built-in feature that is typically an expensive after-market addition, allowing you to keep extra shells in a spare mag instead of jingling loose in your pocket.Franchi Momentum Elite. With superior ergonomics and feel and built-in Italian tradition, the Momentum Elite (starting at $848) features an advanced ergonomic stock that is now available in hunting-centric colors, each featuring a complimentary Cerakote finish on the barrel and receiver for premium protection against the elements.

Choose from five calibers that include 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win., .300 Win Mag, .350 Legend and 6.5 PRC. Franchi Instinct SLX. Here’s a stunning over/under ready to be cherished and passed down for generations. By blending the signature lightweight receiver of Franchi’s Instinct SL with traditional floral engravings, gold inlays, and beautiful AA-grade, oiled-walnut Prince of Wales stock and Schnabel forend, the Instinct SLX (starting at $1,999) provides the incredible fit, feel and quick-shouldering pointability you expect from a Franchi in an heirloom-quality firearm you’ll be proud of.

The Pro Series Thermal Blind ($349.99) extends any hunt with its unique five-hub design that creates an asymmetrical shape wrapped in Mossy Oak Elements Terra that easily blends into any setting.

Inside, you’ll benefit from extra floor space, all-new silent-slide windows/mesh and the company’s tried-and-true ShadowGuard coating to eliminate shadows and silhouettes. The 12 large windows and extra depth make finding the perfect shot that much easier. CenterPoint Wrath 430. Why not gift the most revolutionary crossbow CenterPoint has ever created?

This design also allows the bow to be extremely compact, at just over 28 inches long and a mere 9 inches wide when fully cocked.Mission Crossbows SUB-1 XR. Designed for speed and accuracy, Team HuntStand has used this fine crossbow to anchor several deer and turkeys across North America and it comes highly recommended.
