HuntTested Father’s Day Gift Guide

Like most hunters, I have my dad to thank for introducing me to hunting. I was lucky to grow up in rural Minnesota with a dad who instilled in me a love for hunting and the outdoors. If you’re stumped on what to get your dad for Father’s Day, you can’t go wrong with any of the items listed in the following Father’s Day Gift Guide for Hunter Dads.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Hunter Dads:

Leica Trinovid HD 8X32 Binoculars

Leica Trinovid HD 32

If money is no object, consider the Leica’s Trinovid HD 32 binocular, it’s truly a gift that will last a lifetime. This model is an ideal all-around binocular. Mine see use when I’m bowhunting for elk and they are small and light enough to tag along on most outings. The Leica HD optics ensure an impressive balance of light transmission and bright, natural colors.  They sport a rugged design protected by a rubber-armored housing, shock-resistant and waterproofed to a depth of 5.47 yds. $899 from LeicaClick Here to buy

Streamlight 88061 ProTac 1L-1AA Dual Fuel Professional Tactical Light – 350 Lumens

Streamlight ProTac 1L-1AA

Dad can ALWAYS use another flashlight. It’s a guaranteed fail-safe gift. One of my favorite lights that a carry every day is the Streamlight ProTac 1L-1AA. It features 350 Lumens on high with 1.5 hours of run time. I love the flexibility of being able to run it on either a CR123A Lithium Battery, one AA Alkaline OR a AA Lithium Battery. It also features a 3 Watt super high flux LED, impervious to shock with a 20,000 hour lifetime. $39 from StreamlightClick Here to Buy

Filson 1-1/2″ Bridle Leather Belt

Dad will love Filson’s Bridle Leather belt. It’s ideal for hunting and is perfect for carrying a holster or belt knife. I’ve worn my Filson belt for years and it’s still in amazing shape. Bridle leather is traditionally used to make saddles and horse tack so it’s super durable and long-lasting. This belt features a solid brass roller buckle and two brass snaps that allow the buckle to be replaced. $75 from Filson – Click Here to Buy

Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener

If you’re really good at sharpening knives, you’ll most likely use an India whet or oilstone. My whetstone sharpening skills are abysmal, so I use the Worksharp Knife and Tool sharpener to make up for my ineptitude. It’s amazingly easy to use and will hone your hunting or kitchen knives to a razor edge. If your dad doesn’t already have one, he’ll absolutely love this. $70 from Work Sharp. – Click Here to Buy

Suunto M-3 Baseplate Compass

Dad can always use another compass. This M-3 by Suunto is one of our favorites. It’s perfect for use with a map with its transparent baseplate and built-in magnifying glass. The adjustable declination makes it simple to adjust for use anywhere in the northern hemisphere. When the sun goes down, the luminous bezel helps you see where you need to go. $30 by Suunto  – Click Here to Buy

Benchmade – Bushcrafter 162 Knife, Drop-Point

Readers of HuntTested know that we really like Benchmade knives. Their Bushcrafter 162 model is a terrific gift choice for Dad. This knife is built like a tank with a high-end CPM-S30V stainless steel full-tang blade and G10 handles. It’s excellent for camping, hunting, and all-around outdoor use. The Buschcrafter 162 comes with a brown, full-grain leather sheath with belt loop.  $195 by Benchmade – Click Here to Buy

Boyt Harness Signature Series Shotgun Case with Pocket

Boyt Harness sets the standard for high-quality gun cases. Their Signature Series case features Italian harness leather, super durable canvas exterior and a supple quilted flannel lining to protect your gun. I have Boyt cases that are over 20 years old and they still look great and are just as functional as new. Dad will love it. A 52″ case will fit most field shotguns. A Benelli M2 with a 28″ barrel fits perfectly in mine. $86 by Boyt Harness Company – Click Here to Buy
