Got a buddy getting married this fall. Loves hunting!!! Has a dog. Hunts mostly waterfowl, some phesant, a little deer. Question is what is that one or two gadgets/toy's that you wish you had or do have that normaly you would not have spent the money on but now just love it! Remember he hunts everything...boat stuff, dog stuff, gun stuff, at home hunting stuff....

$400.00 or less because you only get married a couple times in your life. grin.gif

Lets hear some good ideas!

Thanks!

At the Tracy sports show this past summer I bought the coolest thing that he would dig. It's a magnet gun holder thingy. It's made out of foam and formed to fit 8 guns. It holds to the side of the pickup with a magnet.

No more leaning shotguns up against the tailgate, truck bed, etc. Set the butt on the ground and the barrell in the foam thing. It's pretty cool.

I don't know the name of it, but I have the contact info on the box at home. My e-mail is in my address. Drop me a mail if you want the contact info.

How about a nice GPS - if he does not have one.

If his wife agrees how about a hunting trip that you two take - ND pheasant or huck hunting.

If it was me, a case of Hevi Shot would be great.

How about a gift card to mount his next Trophy (Deer, pheasant or duck). That way you both can hunt together for it.

I would say a new nice gas grill. I bought a nice grill a couple years ago and just love the thing. I hate having to cook on other peoples cheap, flame thrower grills. Buy a quility grill that will last for a while like a Weber stainless. You should be right in that $400 area.

Since he is a hunter you know he likes the backstrap on the grill and it will last longer than the case of heavy shot.

Not sure if he has one, but a range finder is a nice thing that you don't NEED but is cool to have. For what its worth, I found the wider ones seem to work better than the taller narrow (newer style) ones, though they are a bit larger. Roughly about $250 for a pretty darn nice one. Deer hunting can use it, duck hunting (ranging your decoy set is very enlightening!) or just plain goofing around with it. Not to mention sighting in gun out in the prairie away from a range - you know know exactly where 150 yards is smile.gif

Great ideas! That gun rest "thingy" sounds like a less expensive gift to go along with a higher priced one. A new gun is so personal. I would pull a gun and love it and he pulls it up and hates it. I was thinking of a real nice duck call. One of those could run $150.00. maybe another to personal item? What do Nightvision binocs/camera go for?

Keep the ideas comming.

I bought the new Moutrie 4.0 IR flash camera and so far I really like it. Takes good quality pics, seems to be a quick trigger time and overall seems to be a great camera!! I am actually thinking about selling my other 2 flash cameras and buying another IR one. I think it cost me 220 from Cabelas.

A few things he might not buy himself but love to have. A new duck call and goose call around the $120.00 range. A good filler with them a few boxes of one of the high density shells out there.

you should check out C&S calls in zumbrota mn, he makes some awsome looking duck/goose calls and can have them engraved, maybe with a wedding date or his new brides name??

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
