Not sure what’s on an Oregon hunter’s Christmas list? These are likely to be included, and if not, will make great surprise gifts.
As Christmas draws ever closer, it is time to start knocking a few things off your list. Whether you are the one asking or the one buying, look no further for a list of great gift ideas. Hunters can be pretty particular when it comes to gear or it may seem like they already have one of everything. However, unwrapping anything off the following list will lead to a happy hunter on Christmas morning.
Carhartt Quick Duck Woodward Traditional Jacket
The Carhartt brand is one of the most trusted companies in the outerwear industry. They are known for their durability and weather resistance; perfect for anyone who is out in the Oregon elements a lot. The new Quick Duck line of jackets from the renowned company are designed to be lighter and more water resistant than the original Carhartt coat. That is certain to come in handy when contending with the frequent Oregon rain. They are ideal for those times when a hunter needs to be in the field, but isn’t actually hunting. Give your favorite hunter a Carhartt Quick Duck jacket for Christmas, and they will be a lot happier, and dryer, while searching for antler sheds, checking trail cams, and performing all the other odd jobs that successful hunting requires.

Meat Eater: Adventures from the Life of an American Hunter by Steven Rinella
Although the majority of hunters prefer to be out in the field as often as possible, there are times when staying indoors and sitting by the fire is the better choice. This time will usually be taken up with such tasks as gun cleaning or knife sharpening, but relaxing with a good hunting book can be equally as favorable. In Meat Eater: Adventures from the Life of an American Hunter, the reader will be taken on ten hunts; each with their own lesson. From fur trapping to Dall sheep hunting, Meat Eater takes readers on a riveting tour through the trails and paths of the hunting lifestyle.

Tipton Best Gun Vise
Any hunter worthy of the name will most likely already be well-stocked in gun cleaning supplies. Therefore, unwrapping solvents or patches on Christmas morning isn’t likely to generate any “oohs” or “ahhs.” However, many hunters only spend money on what is necessary to keep their guns rust-free and in great shooting condition with the rest going towards ammunition and other essential gear. The Tipton Best Gun Vise is a perk that would go a long ways towards making the gun cleaning process more efficient, but is something that most hunters would not buy for themselves. Surprise the hunter on your Christmas list and give them a high-quality gun vise that they would never think to buy for themselves.

Leupold BX-2 Acadia 10×42 Binoculars
No hunter’s arsenal is complete without a quality pair of binoculars. Whether scanning the brush for a glint of antler or glassing the treetops for a glimpse of a Western gray squirrel, having a set of quality optics to rely on can make the difference between coming home empty handed and filling a tag. The Leupold brand is heralded for producing some of the clearest and brightest optics on the market and their binoculars are superb. Although Grandpa’s old binoculars may hold memories, an upgrade in the optics department would make any Oregon hunter happy.
