2019 Holiday Gift Guide

2019 Holiday Gift Guide

The best gift you can give a bowhunter this season is the gift of quality. Whether it’s a recent upgrade or a time-tested model, software or hardware, you show someone how much you care when you care to give the very best. Fortunately, we’ve made that easy for you this year. Here are eight of the latest and greatest items on the bowhunting market this season!

Genesis Original

Teal-Genesis.jpg

If you'd like to get your children involved with the great sport of archery, look no further than Genesis Archery for help in doing just that. With its Original bows designed to fit virtually any child, you couldn't ask for better equipment for beginners. With only one cam on the bottom of the each rig, tuning is breeze, recoil is limited, and accuracy is increased. Bows are available in bow right- and left-handed options with plenty of different color schemes to choose from. You also have an opportunity to add a kit to your purchase, which includes a quiver, armguard and five arrows. A hunting bow that packs a bigger punch — the Gen-X — is also offered when the right times comes! MSRP: $170-249 | genesisbow.com

onX Hunt App

onX Hunt waypoint

The best gets even better with the latest updates to the onX Hunt app. Users can now share Waypoints, Lines, Shapes, and Tracks with their friends and relatives, as well as the accompanying Markup content — names, notes, colors, and more. (If Uncle John rubs you the wrong way after the festivities are over, you can also un-share said content with him.) These new features are available in addition to the GPS, property-boundary, and other mapping tools that help make onX Hunt invaluable. $29.99 per year (Premium Membership); $99.99 per year (Elite Membership) | onxmaps.com

L.L. Bean Waterfowl Sweater

LL-Bean-Waterfowl-Sweater-HGG.jpg

Back by popular demand, the Waterfowl Sweater is inspired by the classic styling of the original 1930s design. This premium cold-weather garment is made of 100 percent merino wool with arm and shoulder shooting patches integrated into the tight-knit material. A soft microsuede lining makes the tall collar extra comfortable on the back of the wearer’s neck, and an easy-to-grasp zipper pull allows for hassle-free removal if and when the temperatures rise. The Waterfowl Sweater is available in four colors, a regular and tall fit, and sizes S-XXL. MSRP: $99 | llbean.com


Lumenok Combo Pack

Lumenok Combo Pack

This gift’s got it all. The Lumenok Combo Pack includes four of the legendary Lumenok HD lighted vertical nocks, two extra batteries for seasons of dependable use, and a dual arrow puller/Lumenok Extinguisher for easily removing your arrows from a foam target and turning off the nocks. The nocks are available in Green or HD Orange and in Signature or GT styles, and the lights are some of the brightest and longest-lasting that have ever been manufactured. With durability and dependability built right in, this gift is a can’t-miss. $49.99 | lumenok.com


Muzzy One

Muzzy One

The gift that keeps on giving — and giving, and giving. The latest broadhead from Muzzy not only punches a hole in even the toughest animal hides, but it can also be resharpened by the user to ensure a razor-sharp edge hunt after hunt. The One, as its name suggests, is built from a single piece of stainless steel. Its .046-inch-thick blades are permanently attached to the ferrule for added strength, create a 1.125-inch cutting diameter, and can be resharpened using a flat stone. Muzzy Ones are sold in packs of three and are available in 100-grain offerings. $44.99 | feradyne.com


Hunters Specialties True Talker OG

Hunters Specialties True Talker OG

Back by popular demand. The True Talker is one of history’s greatest deer calls, so Hunters Specialties decided to bring the original design back to the market (hence the “OG”). All the old favorites are here: the soft rubber exterior, a rubber sleeve over the bellow/grunt tube for easy volume/tone/direction control, four deer vocalizations for everything from a fawn to a mature buck grunt. However, there is one small change to this classic call: an improved reed design to make it extremely resistant to freezing up and allow for a “growl” to lure in aggressive, mature bucks. These really are the good ol’ days. $19.99 | hunterspec.com

Ultimate Predator Gear Whitetail Deer Stalker

Ultimate Predator Gear Whitetail Deer Stalker

This innovative product will allow your favorite bowhunter to hide in plain sight while also closing the distance to his or her quarry. The Whitetail Deer Stalker from Ultimate Predator Gear attaches to your bow without obstructing your shot or your view, allowing for straight-ahead travel toward the animal. With its picture-perfect realism and durable/UV-free/quick-drying/micro-suede design, the Whitetail Deer Stalker is sure to fool the target without putting the bowhunter in danger — the decoy comes with built-in blaze-orange safety straps. The Whitetail Deer Stalker weighs less than 10 ounces and collapses to a 10-inch-diameter disc for easy storage. “Antlers” can also be purchased for $12.95 to turn your doe into a buck. $94.90 | ultimatepredatorgear.com

ALPS OutdoorZ Trail Blazer

ALPS OutdoorZ Trail Blazer

Available in Realtree Edge, Mossy Oak Country, or Realtree AP Snow, the Trail Blazer is one of the most all-around useful packs ever created by ALPS OutdoorZ. Whether carried in the backcountry or on the back 40, the Trail Blazer’s 2,500-cubic-inch capacity can handle the daily gear requirements that all bowhunters have, and it does so with ease. The large main pocket offers general gear storage, while a zippered front and mesh side pockets allow for segregated hauling. There’s also bar-tacked webbing for multiple attachment points and a front lashing system, along with a special expanding pocket to carry a bow hands-free. $99.99 | alpsoutdoorz.com


T.R.U. Ball Beast XT

TRU-Ball-Beast-XT.jpg

When it comes to release aids, you can’t go wrong with those made by T.R.U. Ball. The company has several top-notch models for hunters, including the Beast XT. The open-hook design of this release allows you to quickly connect to your D loop. Its solid rod connector swivels, and it adjusts for length. The non-collapsing trigger is offered in straight-forward (provides more draw length for short-draw shooters) and swept-back (for ultimate feel) options. New engraving and body design round out the features of the Beast XT, which is available in your choice of Buckle or Velcro® wrist strap. $99.99 | truball.com

Bohning Blazer QuikFletch

Bohning Blazer QuikFletch

These arrow wraps are perfect for that friend or relative who shoots a lot but doesn’t have time to fletch his or her own arrows or run to a pro shop. QuikFletch wraps from Bohning easily attach to shaft sizes of .219-inch to .375-inch when submerged in boiling water. The vanes feature a two-degree offset, with the wrap measuring 5.25 inches long total and weighing 27 grains. These wraps last an incredibly long time once they’re on, making re-fletching less time-consuming and not as frequent of a chore. QuikFletch wraps are available in six-packs of camo/neon orange, pink camo/hot pink, teal, and an American flag pattern. $20.99-$29.99 | bohning.com
