5 Great Father’s Day Gifts for the Outdoorsman in Your Life [PICS]

Father’s day is just around the corner, so here are a few gift suggestions for the outdoorsman in your life.

Father’s Day will be here faster than you think. Here are a few presents that will make you the favorite child of your outdoor-loving dad.

Kestrel 4500 Electronic Hand-Held Weather Meter

Midway USA

Does the dad in your life enjoy days at the shooting range? Are there stacks of shooting notes and old targets atop the available surfaces in his man cave? Is a long range ethical shot on his favorite game animal currently on his bucket list?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, the Kestrel 4500 Weather Meter is the gift to give this year. It can gather environmental information, such as barometric pressure and crosswind speed. It’s the go-to addition for the range junkie’s field bag, as well as the long-range hunter’s daypack.

EXO 3500/5500 Backpack

Exo Mountain Gear

Dads who find solace and rejuvenation in multi-day backcountry fishing trips or strive to bring a big bull elk out of the depths of the wilderness need a means of carrying their gear in and their bounty out. The EXO 3500/5500 Backpack definitely fits that bill.

With a built-in meat shelf for those heavy loads between the pack and frame, the EXO line of backpacks keep the weight where it needs to be for the most comfortable packing experience. Any combination of the 14 available compression straps make it possible to cinch just about any load securely to the pack and frame assembly.

The versatility, flexibility, and customization options EXO backpacks offer make this Father’s Day gift last for years.

Heads Up Decoy by Smoky Hill Hunting Products, LLC

Heads Up Decoy

If your dad enjoys the close encounters required for stick and string success, the Heads Up Decoy will compliment an already plentiful bag of tricks. The decoys available include mule deer, cow elk, turkey, pronghorn, and both buck and doe options for whitetail deer.

This lightweight decoy is easy to assemble and can be used in a myriad of settings, including mounting to a bow via the bow mount accessory. The Heads Up Decoy could be the final measure needed to bring that bugling bull or curious buck a few yards closer, and help Dad seal the deal in the field.

Gift Cards/Certificates


This is definitely a fail-safe gift, and it’s extremely efficient. If Dad is difficult to shop for, a gift certificate or gift card to his favorite sporting goods store or other retail outlet will ensure he knows you care. He can then get whatever he may need!

Go Hunting with You

Adam Teten

This is the guaranteed, smile-inducing, dad-pride-swelling type of gift any outdoorsman would cherish forever. Dads hunt because someone, usually their dad, brought them along on a hunting trip. Dads want their kids to understand the truth and reality associated with hunting and the outdoors. So go hunting with your pop for Father’s Day.

Dads want to pass along the dos and don’ts they’ve gathered throughout their years. Most importantly, dads want their kids to experience the outdoors early in life. Sharing summertime rainbows, spring shed hikes, and fall deer hunts with their children are better than any new piece of gear on the market.

Whatever you get Dad for his special day, make sure you go use it outside with him.

Happy Father’s Day!
