Bowhunter's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

There's a good chance Dad is already thinking about archery season, so make a big splash this Father's Day!

Bowhunter's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Father's Day is the perfect time of year to remind the bowhunter in your life how important he is.

When it comes down to it, I’d be willing to be that most of you were probably first introduced to hunting by your dad — no disrespect meant to any and all other family members and mentors by that statement. That said, it’s time to truly show your appreciation to your “World’s Greatest” or “#1 Dad” with one of the following gifts that will mean more to Pop than any T-shirt or coffee mug bearing the aforementioned accolades.

TruGlo Carbon Fiber Cadence

TruGlo Carbon Fiber Cadence

At 8.5 oz. and a length of 8”, the Carbon Fiber Cadence stabilizer has an aluminum base fitted with a carbon shaft. It helps balance your bow, and also keeps it quiet by way of a pair of dampeners located on its horizontal and vertical axis. A unique coating and weight-forward design only make this budget-friendly bow accessory even more appealing. MSRP: $43 | Truglo.com

Easton Sonic 6.0

Easton Sonic 6.0

The Sonic 6.0 is a 6mm, 100% carbon-fiber arrow engineered for speed and accuracy. Consistent in weight and spine, the Sonic’s lighter mass weight allows you to build it to spec for your favorite hunting bow. Broadhead accuracy is about as good as it gets thanks to the factory fletched helical 2” Bully Vanes from Bohning. Straightness is +/- .003”. It’s available in spines of 250, 300, 340, 400, 500, and 600. MSRP: $89.99/half-dozen fletched | Eastonarchery.com

Outdoor Edge RazorCape

Outdoor Edge RazorCape

The lightweight RazorCape has two replaceable 3” caping blades; two replaceable, 3” drop-point blades; and one 3” gutter — all seated in a black oxide-coated steel blade holder and changed via a pushbutton system. The polymer handle is also lightweight and won’t slip out of your hand. The stainless-steel blades do a great job of holding an edge. Overall length is 7.1”. MSRP: $53.95 | Outdooredge.com


Primos Photoform Turkey Decoys

Primos Photoform Turkey Decoys

If Dad likes hunting turkeys and doesn’t want to be weighed down when he needs to get after that gobbling tom, then he’ll love the Photoform Strutter and Hen from Primos. Both sport an actual turkey image printed on lightweight 3-D molded foam. They collapse and fold, so you can stuff them in your pack. MSRP: $130/Strutter; $84/Hen | Primos.com


Ozonics MICRO3

Ozonics MICRO3

Rid Dad’s hunting vehicle of odors with the Ozonics MICRO3. It uses the proven power of ozone to aggressively sanitize his unoccupied vehicle’s interior by attacking bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and more. It automatically shuts off after running for 20 minutes. Need a second cleanse? Simply unplug the unit from the lighter and then reinsert. MSRP: $49.99 | Ozonicshunting.com

Browning Strike Force FHD

Browning Strike Force FHD

The Strike Force FHD is proof-positive that good remote scouting can come in a very small package. This 22MP mini has four IR LEDs for super-clear nighttime images, and it also takes 1080p full HD videos with sound. Economy Mode saves battery life; High Power Mode extends illumination distance, and Fast Motion helps improve image quality of critters captured in motion. Trigger speed adjusts from 0.135 to 0.7 seconds. Flash range is 110’ (80’ detection). MSRP: $149.99 | Browningtrailcameras.com

Tink’s #69 Doe-In-Rut Scent Pods

Tink’s #69 Doe-In-Rut Scent Pods

Preloaded with Tink’s #69 Doe-In-Rut, these unique pods allow you to peel and hang them virtually anywhere. Just pull the tab out less than an inch and the #69 scent soaks the felt pad. After that, all you need do is hang the pod and the alluring scent will disperse downwind for up to eight hours. MSRP: $9.99/3-pack | Tinks.com

G5 Outdoors Deadmeat V2

G5 Outdoors Deadmeat V2

This mechanical broadhead is extremely accurate, beyond sharp, and built with a near-bulletproof steel ferrule. The V2’s three stainless-blades cut a 1.5” hole upon impact, which will shorten Dad’s tracking jobs considerably if his aim is true. The Deadmeat V2 comes with a B.M.P. (Ballistic Matched Point) that mirrors the actual broadhead for practice sessions, and it’s available in 100 and 125 grains. MSRP: $49.95/3-pack | G5outdoors.com




Nockturnal Shift Nock

Nockturnal Shift Nock

Nockturnal’s Shift lighted nocks are available in red, green, and red/green strobing. It weighs 25 grains and promises 20 hours of lithium-powered battery life. It has a simple on/off design — the external switch makes the process pretty much idiot-proof. Each pack of nocks comes with X, H, S, and GT arrow bushings. MSRP: $32.99/2-pack | Feradyne.com/nockturnal

Thermacell MR300 Hunt Pack

Thermacell MR300 Hunt Pack

Who likes mosquitoes? Nobody! And that’s why the Thermacell MR 300 Hunt Pack is invaluable. It creates a 15’ invisible “bubble” that skeeters WILL NOT penetrate. This “lifesaving” unit has a simple on/off switch, quiet ignition, ergonomic feel, and an accessory mounting system. MSRP: $30 | Thermacell.com
