Gift Ideas for the 'old school' outdoorsman?


Kylersk

Question

I can think of a thousand things I'd want, but trying to find something for my Father-In-Law is tough. He doesnt like gadgets and has just about anything he needs.

Trying to keep it under $50.

Ideas?

Thanks!

Does he cut firewood? How about a pickaroon? They're not easy to find but I could give you a lead if needed.

How about a Peavey, Ice Tongs, Cross Cut saw off E-bay, or maybe a Spoon Auger. A jon-e-warmer, Winchester hatchet, a model 53 Winchester 25-20 (oops over budget) , A pair of Chopper Mitts, or Blackjack gum as stocking stuffers. Maybe he would like some music.....Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman,maybe Artie Shaw, Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, Or maybe just a good soundtrack to cut the carpet for some good old fashion Jitter Bugging with the Mother-In- Law. Maybe he would like to watch some TV like , Have Gun will travel, Gunsmoke, Raw Hide, Wagon Train, there are DVD's for all. Maybe some fishing lures theres bound to be an old favorite from Heddon, Pflueger, Creek Chub, or South Bend.

Maybe the best idea of all would be a nice home cooked chicken dinner with all the trimmings right down to a loaf of hot home made bread topped with real butter, and don't forget the apple pie and home made ice cream. Hope some of this helps, let us know what you ended up getting him!

A day trip to Mille Lacs. Have a good breakfast on the way up, catch some of the tasty fish and cook supper at the end of the day.

Leech Lake filet knife. It's "old school" and it will last forever if taken care of.

Is there anything that you know would be good for him but he refuses to buy himself? Perhaps he would use it if you bought it for him.

I bought my super old school dad one of those fancy bright light flashers that glow up jigs before you put them down the hole, I gave my old man one on a string with a clipper he wears around his neck. He never would buy one but now he thinks its the greatest thing.

Does he have a Leatherman Tool? My sons and I don't feel dressed in the morning if we don't have ours on our belts.

How about a nice framed wildlife print? Or a membership to Ducks unlimited, Pheasants forever or Ruffed Grouse Society etc.

As an old school guy myself I really liked the cyclops head band light, summertime red light no bugs, wintertime hands free light setting up whatever, great gift under 40.00

A good electric fillet knife! Cleaning fish is no longer a chore to me since I got mine. Great for cleaning those half frozen fish and a breeze on fresh ones. Blades last a long time without needing sharpening. I have had mine 2 years and just got new blades. Hundreds and hundreds of fish went under them blades and they were still good just not as sharp/fast as I like.
