Let’s face it, it can be really hard to buy gifts for hunters. Hunters tend to have strong brand preferences and very different needs for specialized equipment. Plus, it’s hard to know what gear a hunter already has or will value. If you have a hunter on your gift list, HuntTested is here to help. Here’s our list of the top gift ideas that hunters will love.

Grizzly 20 Cooler
My buddy Doug is perfectly happy to keep his beer (for after the hunt) in the same cooler as his cleaned pheasants. I prefer a dedicated drink cooler that doesn’t mix pheasant blood with my favorite IPA. The Grizzly 20 is perfect for the task. The Made-in-USA Grizzly Cooler G20 is small, but it’s big on performance. It’s a perfect weekend camping cooler package with a 20-quart capacity, enough room for food, beverages, and ice to keep everything fresh and cold. The Grizzly 20 Cooler holds up to 24 cans with 5 pounds of ice and comes in a variety of colors. Did I mention that it’s Made in the USA!

Helle GT – Field Knife
It wouldn’t be a gift list without a knife. Every hunter that I know would be thrilled to receive a quality knife as a gift. The GT Model from Helle Knives of Norway is a great choice for a gift. It’s a traditional field knife design that is hand made in Norway. The blade is triple laminated stainless steel. Two layers of tough stainless steel(18/8) protect the blade against breakage and corrosion, while the high carbon core provides a superb cutting edge. The handle is made from curly birch with an aluminum finger stop. The Helle GT also comes with a quality leather sheath.

Axil GS Extreme Earbuds
A single report from a rifle or shotgun can damage your hearing. Once the damage is done, there is no taking it back. The problem is, hunting is about hearing what’s going on around you. The crunch of leaves from a big buck or the flush of wings from a rooster pheasant. The folks at Axil have designed earbuds that are ideal for hunters and shooters. Their GS Extreme Earbuds will enhance your hearing up to 8 times and simultaneously suppress sounds above 85 decibels to protect your hearing. They are also able to connect to your phone via Bluetooth. A perfect gift for hunters and shooters.

Streamlight MacroStream ® USB
Everyone can use another flashlight. Especially one they’ll use everyday like the Streamlight MacroStream ® USB. This light is small enough to carry on your person, yet packs a punch for a light its size, with its 500-lumen output, 2-hour run time, and convenient USB recharging. It weighs only 2.2 ounces and measuring 4.5 inches, so it’s the ideal pocket or cap light for hunting and other outdoor uses. It includes a removable, two-way pocket/hat clip; a tail cap switch that provides easy, one-handed operation of the light’s momentary or constant-on operation; and high and low beams.
