Whoever came up with the gift-giving phrase, “It’s the thought that counts,” was wrong. Bad wrong. That’s the mindset of a slacker. It’s the gift that counts. And when it comes to the best Father’s Day gifts, you can either drop the ball, or knock it out of the park.
Here’s a few gift ideas that’ll help you score big when it comes to shopping for your bowhunter this year.
Lancaster Archery Gift Card
Gift cards are great, provided you give the right one. And you can’t go wrong with a gift card from the crew at Lancaster Archery Supply. The options are seemingly endless when it comes to the great bowhunting gear available at Lancaster Archery.
You’ll find everything from bows, arrows, targets, camo and everything in between at Lancaster Archery, and this gift card is the key to make the purchase happen. Give the card in any amount you desire, and keep your bowhunter outfitted for the season.
I learned a long time ago to buy headlamps two at a time when I find one I really like. They are one of the handiest tools in your pack, and you never know when you’ll need a spare, or backup light for a friend.
The Cyclops 210 Lumen headlamp is a great option that’s compact, yet casts plenty of light.
Charmast Portable Charger
Help your dad stay charged while in the treestand or hunting camp this season with the addition of a portable charger.
A portable charger allows you to keep your cell phone, tablet, computer, or other gadgets charged and ready for the hunt.
The Charmast portable charger has tons of power, allowing for multiple charges while in camp or the treestand.
The Charmast charger has a 26800mAh large capacity that’ll charge your smartphone at least 5 times, iPad Mini 3 times, Macbook 2 times, and it needs only 9 hours to fully charge the power bank.

YETI Crossroads Duffel
YETI continues to expand on their lineup of quality baggage for the man on the go. The Crossroads duffel is the perfect companion bag for all the essentials, regardless of whether you’re headed to hunting camp, or to the gym.
Organize and re-organize all of your gear as you go with two Divider Panels that separate the bag into three sections. Prefer a wide opening with ample room? Simply fold the dividers away when not in use. And unlike other duffels, this one has Structured Foam Walls to keep it from folding in on itself.
