I have a friend in NZ who is an avid "pig hunter" and who was having trouble keeping track of his pig dogs from getting gored &/or lost, and his kids pooled resources to get him a Garmin Astro 220 GPS that I purchased in US and sent over for him. He said it was the best fathers day gift ever.
So many toys and so little time. A guy could look like that old poster of Charlie Chaplin goes to war in which he even has the kitchen sink. My goose hunting stuff fills the truck to the point you may neglect to bring your shotgun. Hunters have great stuff besides the hunting rifle to choose from and it keeps things interesting
ahhh yes fathers day time of the year to ask and get good stuff loved the article lol
I would have to say that my dad would perfer hunting over fishing! I do like the new saftey harness! i might get that for myself!
Big O, i'd say your right, at least im in full fishing mood, been catching some big ole bucketmouths here in east central illinois.
Bo's right lots of fishing stuff. Is this because it's "fishing season"?
Some non-gadget and/or non-"trendy" options would be nice too. I do think this is one of the better lists out there. But I know my Dad is like so many out there...if he wanted it, he'd have it, and only likes wood, steel, and made in USA. I wish I could get the man to wear a nice wicking shirt or something...but ain't happening.
Has anyone used the 18 V chainsaw? My dad has a couple larger chainsaws but something smaller like this would be great. How well do they work and how well do they hold a charge?
Bo, good point, i would like to see alot of hunting items, but alot of people i know like fishing and just dont hunt, im fine with that, i recently got my father into hunting whitetails, he is 48 and im 17 he shot his first deer this year and it was an amazing experience. But again i would like more hunting stuff to buy for dad
Lot of stuff for fishing, not much stuff for hunting. Give us hunters only some time to think about that and we'll check back with some ideas. Thanks for starting this, if I can show something fromhere to my daughter, this just might work.
