The Classy Hunter’s Wish List

Some might call them “hunting snobs,” but we prefer the term “classy hunter.” You know the type: a hunter who straddles the lines between hunting enthusiast, technology guru, and passionate collector all at once. These hunters want only the best of what the hunting market has to offer. They replace their toys almost annually, all in an effort to be ahead of the curve as far as hunting innovations are concerned, and their collection of hunting equipment is impressive enough to fill an entire museum-like room.

If you are shopping for a “classy hunter” this holiday season, you might want to scout out their collection to see what sort of products they already have. This way, you can better judge what that person might want to add to their hunting arsenal rather than shooting blindly and ending up with something they already have. With that said, if you need some guidance, here are some safe purchases that will probably crop up on most classy hunter wish lists this holiday season.

Moultrie Panoramic 150 trail camera ($219.99): Trail cameras are among the foremost tech toys in the hunting industry, so you can bet that a classy hunter will always want to have the newest, flashiest device on the market. This year, that title goes to the Moultre Panoramic 150. With an 8 megapixel camera and a 150-degree detection area – three times the field view of the average trail camera – the Moultrie Panoramic 150 is one of 2013’s most exciting hunting innovations.

Sitka Forest Series Incinerator Hunting Jacket for Men ($599.99): One of the priciest and nicest hunting jackets on the market, this coat combines a waterproof GORE-TEX shell with a fully insulated interior. It keeps hunters warm and dry in even the harshest conditions, and thanks to a classy, smoky gray color, it looks great doing it.

Zeiss Terra ED 10X ($399.99): The problem with shopping for a classy hunter is that most of the items on their wish list are extremely expensive. This pair of high-tech German hunting binoculars is hardly cheap, but compared to other high-end binoculars on the market, $400 is a bargain. With a compact and lightweight design – they only weigh 5.5 ounces – the Zeiss Terra ED binoculars are perfect for a hunter who spends hours looking through them each day. They’re also waterproof and provide filters that make it easy to see everything, even in low-light conditions.

Garmin Astro Dog Tracking Bundle ($599.99): If the classy hunter on your Christmas list this year has a dog he or she likes to take along on hunting trips, then this GPS tracking system should be your go-to gift. A GPS transmitter in the form of a dog collar is perfect for tracing a dog’s location, while the handheld GPS receiver allows a hunter to watch their dog’s position from afar. Whether the dog is off tracking a deer or getting into something it shouldn’t this collar can be a real life saver.
