Petersen's Bowhunting 2015 Holiday Gift Guide

HGG-ribbon-2015-hunting

Impress your bowhunter this holiday season with gear that is sure to make an impression next hunting season.

These products come highly recommended from our staff, who feel that being a bowhunter is synonymous with being a gear freak. There's something for everybody: whether you're looking to stuff a stocking or have the biggest box under the tree.

Realtree | Under Armour Gritt Shoe

The upper of these Realtree shoes is made of a protective, light ripstop with UA Storm technology, so water falls right off, making it ideal for colder, wetter days. The rugged leather overlays add the stability you need on trails. Down below, Micro G technology delivers more than just cushioning — it rebounds the energy of your stride to propel you forward. Basically, this is what you want for running off-road.

QAD | HDX Rest

The HDX Rest features preset elevation and centershot adjustments for Elite models as well as Pro Kote performance coating — exclusively used by Elite Archery. The total arrow containment component and super fast drop away speed guarantees that your arrow is in good hands.

ALPS Outdoorz | Pathfinder

Need a fanny pack? How about a daypack, too? When you\'re scouting or going to your stand, the Pathfinder fanny pack mode is great to haul along the essentials. When more room is necessary, you simply unroll the daypack mode out from the fanny pack and you have an additional 1100 cubic inches of space. This one amazing bag will keep you from buying five different ones.

Gerber | Myth Blood Tracker

Gerber worked with hunters and engineers to develop the Myth Blood Tracking Light. The perfect shot is hard to make, so the need to track your game once it's been hit is a reality for most hunters. This small, powerful LED flashlight enhances the color red in low-light situations to simplify tracking your downed animal.

Slash | 6 Hunting Arrows

With a SLASH INsetBlade Arrow, the 60 grain, 7/8" cutting diameter broadhead at the tip of the arrow enters first, cutting a leading path of destruction. A few inches behind, once the arrow shaft enters, two expandable INsetBlade Deployable Blades deploy. Because the arrows are factory tuned, they come ready to shoot right out of the box.

Bushnell | Trophy Cam HD Wireless

The woods no longer call, they text from the Trophy Cam HD. Images are sent directly to your phone, tablet or computer for up-to-the-minute scouting information from wherever you hang this camera. If you like doing it the old fashioned way, though, a huge LCD screen allows you to sort through images while in the field.

Wildgame Innovations | Commander War Paint Stick

Improve your camouflage concealment while in the field with the Wildgame Innovations Commander War Paint. The no-glare brown, green and black pigments wash off with soap and water, and the paint comes with an acrylic mirrored compact for easy application.

Nikon | PROSTAFF 5 Fieldscope

Being compact and lightweight with a smooth ergonomic design have made the PROSTAFF 5 one of the most user friendly spotting scopes on the market. All lenses and prisms are multilayer-coated for brighter images, which is clutch in the lowlight situations that hunters are often in.

Leatherman | Wingman 14

The Leatherman Wingman is just that: your go-to tool for projects around the house, on the job, or at the campsite. A great, lightweight, pocket-sized, stainless steel tool; the Wingman features an outside-accessible, one-hand opening blade and newly-designed spring-action jaws. With plenty of handy tools, this is one amazing value.

Ameristep | Brotherhood Hang-On

Climb up, sit down and hunt in a comfortable and effective elevated position with the Brotherhood Treestand. The comfortable Durasling seat features a tall back and padded armrests, easing the strain of extended waiting. Both the seat and the footrest flip up, giving you an unobstructed platform.
