BOWHUNTING's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

The best kind of Father's Day gifts are the ones that help dad prepare for the upcoming archery season! 

Searching for the perfect Father’s Day Gift for your bowhunting dad or father figure in your life can sometimes be challenging since every bowhunter has his own preferences and tastes when it comes to archery gear and equipment. Fortunately, there are a number of items that are either essential to bowhunting, or come in handy year-round, making them greatly appreciated by almost any archery enthusiast.

With that in mind, here are 10 great gifts to show your outdoors-loving dad how much he means to you!

Hurricane Cat 5 Target

Hurricane Cat 5

Most avid bowhunters practice regularly, which makes the Hurricane Cat 5 an ideal option for a Father’s Day gift. Not only is this bag target reasonably priced, but thanks to its Tri-Core Technology it’s also capable of handling shots flying up to 650 fps. Yup, that means it can take the hit from any bow or crossbow on the market. The Cat 5 features two shooting faces, with highly visible, tri-color graphics that are easy to see, and its 25x25-inch face offers plenty of room for aiming. The bag’s integrated sight-in grid also makes precision tuning of scope or pins an easy process.
