2019 Father's Day Gift Guide

He’s the man who taught you everything you know about the outdoors. The man who continued to shoot an older bow so he could afford to buy your first. The man who patiently took you hunting when it would have been far easier — and quieter — to leave your chatty, fidgeting self at home. Here are some gift ideas for the man who’s given you … well, everything.

Muzzy One

Muzzy One broadhead

Muzzy’s new broadhead is appropriately named. The one-piece Muzzy One is made from a single block of stainless steel for the ultimate in durability. The One isn’t just tough as an anvil, though; its three .046-inch-thick blades make it scalpel-sharp. The 100-grain broadhead also features a 1.125-inch cutting diameter and a hybrid chisel/cut-on-contact tip. Muzzy Ones are sold three to a pack and can be resharpened with a flat stone, ensuring the old man gets years of use out of his gift. MSRP: $44.99 | feradyne.com/muzzy-broadheads

Lumenok H Adapter Outsert

Lumenok H Adapter Outsert

So, your dad shoots micro-diameter arrows but wants to use lighted nocks, too, huh? Normally that would be a problem, but Lumenok has developed a special outsert to make micro-diameter arrows compatible with its H-model nocks. The H Adapter Outsert fits 4mm (.166-inch) arrows, sliding over the shaft rather than trying to fit inside it. H Adapter Outserts are sold in packs of three; the H nocks themselves are available individually and in three-packs of green, pink or HD orange. MSRP: $9.95 | lumenok.com

Bee Stinger MicroHex Counter Slide

Bee Stinger MicroHex Counter Slide

Whether Pop’s shooting an old, heavy bow or one of today’s lightweight wonders, this stabilizer is sure to balance it perfectly. Bee Stinger’s MicroHex Counter Slide allows archers to move the stabilizer back and forth in either a standard or dovetail (sold separately) mount, as well as add or remove weighted disks on the front and back as required. The stabilizer’s carbon construction keeps the design lightweight while also allowing it to absorb 40 percent of a bow’s vibration. The Counter Slide is available in matte black, olive, tan, gray or brown. MSRP: $159.99-$179.99 | beestinger.com


Buck Bomb Scent Hammock

Buck Bomb Scent Hammock

The new Scent Hammock from Buck Bomb is perfect for dads who want to make their mock scrapes last longer without having to constantly tend to them. The Scent Hammock is compatible with four-ounce bottles of Buck Bomb scent; simply insert an open bottle into the Hammock and allow its contents to slowly drip onto the scrape. This allows the scent to be continually dispersed even when your dad can’t get out and maintain the site. The Scent Hammock’s high-grade rubber design also allows it to remain outdoors in even the worst hunting-season weather. MSRP: $19.99 | hunterspec.com


TightSpot Rise

TightSpot Rise

TightSpot quivers are designed to stay attached to your bow when you’re shooting, but for dads who want all of the benefits of a TightSpot while still removing it on-stand, there’s the Rise. Four inches shorter than the original TightSpot and equipped with a hood loop for hanging it from a screw-in hook, the Rise is every bit as adjustable and stabilizing as the company’s other quivers. The Rise is available in a range of colors and patterns, and it comes with a secondary arrow gripper to keep broadheads sharp and expandables secure. MSRP: $154.95 | tightspotquiver.com

Browning Strike Force APEX

Browning Strike Force APEX

One of the best bangs for your trail-camera buck, the Strike Force APEX is capable of 1600x900 HD-plus video, 18MP imagery and nighttime video lengths of up to 20 seconds. Adjustable infrared flash modes, Illuma-Smart Technology and Zero-Blur image-capture work together to provide the best nighttime results possible, and the camera’s .22-second trigger speed and .6-second recovery speed work night and day. The APEX is compatible with memory cards as large as a 512GB SDXC (not included), allowing the camera to capture up to 10,000 images. MSRP: $139.99 | browningtrailcameras.com

TruGlo EZ Rest

TruGlo EZ Rest

If your dad is looking for a simple, tried-and-true arrow rest, he’ll love the EZ Rest from TruGlo. This full-capture rest is perfect for treestand, ground blind and spot-and-stalk hunting scenarios, as he won’t need to worry whether his arrow is still on the rest or not when the moment of truth arrives. The stiff bristles lining the inside of the EZ Rest make this possible, as they hold the arrow in place. The EZ Rest’s mounting bracket allows for plenty of windage adjustment and even some elevation change. MSRP: $25 | truglo.com

FUSE Archery Vectrix XT

FUSE Archery Vectrix XT

FUSE sought input from top-level archers and bowhunters when designing the new Vectrix XT, so you know Dad’s getting one of the best sights out there with this gift. The Vectrix XT’s .019-inch-diameter fiber-optic wire is coiled to gather the maximum amount of light, and the sight is capable of second- and third-axis adjustment. Laser-engraved adjustment marks make using the Vectrix XT’s micro-adjustable elevation and windage controls that much simpler. A three-stage sight light is also included. MSRP: $139.99 (3-pin); $149.99 (5-pin) | fusearchery.com
