‘Tis the season of feeling compelled to buy things. So if you are going to gift give this holiday season, make them gifts that matter. These are items I highly recommend for anyone who has a lifestyle similar to my own. They are gifts that will get mileage, and repeated use.


Nesco Food Dehydrator

The Nesco food dehydrator is a good value for the price. Its 600 watts, and has an adjustable thermostat ranging from 95º to 160º F. That means jerky can be made safely, without pasteurizing in an oven before or after drying. Buy It - $57.55

Lodge 6QT. Cast Iron

We only use our enameled cast irons. They don’t stick, are easy to clean, and heat evenly, even on the crappiest of stove tops. If you prefer to support an american made product, and thats why you buy Lodge, well you are shit out of luck. Lodge Enameled cast irons are manufactured in China, just like Cuisinart. Atleast there are a plethora of colors to choose from, and they still seem well made. Buy It - $59.97


Simmons Truplex Riflescope (3-9X40, Matte)

This is an unbeatable scope for the price. Other brands can compete on price, but not quality. Easily as good as scopes that cost twice a much. Throw this on your small game 22, or your plinker, and get some more life out of your rifle. Buy It - $44.50

Vortex Diamondback Binos

The best optics for the price. I don’t think there is a better pair of binos, near the cost of these optics. If you need something better, maybe you actually need a spotting scope.
Buy It - $229.99

Bino Harness

Because you need free hands, and pulling binos in and out of a pack, is noisy, and it gets old. Buy It - $49.99

Havalon Knives

I stopped fiddling with knife sharpening and maintenance of hunting knives. Havalon knives use replaceable blades, that are a surgical scalpel level of sharp. They make field processing game quick, and easy. Buy It - $35.99

“Circe” Predator Call

Bring in the ‘yotes, and collect some pelts. Does will also come in thinking a fawn is in distress. So will bears, so be armed. Seriously though, don’t get caught calling in packs of apex predators without your firearm. Its a great stocking stuffer for any predator hunter. Buy It - $10.77

Crosman 1322

The 1322 is a simple and reliable .22 caliber air pistol. Its compact enough to stick in a pack, and because its a pump gun, it does not require compressed air or CO2. It’s accurate with stock sights, and adding a steel breach makes it more than strong enough to be a great squirrel, rabbit, snow hare, and grouse gun. Buy It - $48.00

Crosman Steel Breech

Get more power out of your Crosman 1322. Go from a stock 7.5 foot pounds to, over 12 foot pounds with a few DIY mods, and this steel breech. Buy It - $49.99

Off Grid Living

25 Watt Solar Kit

Whether hunting or traveling to remote areas, a solar cell and charger is just nice to have. Charge and maintain a car battery, or back-up battery. While it doesn’t replace a generator, its smaller, and a lot more simple. Buy It - $57.99

12v Beverage Heater

Its crude, but it gets the job done. When you are on the go, and don’t have time to fire up the stove to make a hot beverage, this will help. Stick in a cup, plug in to a 12v car outlet, add some instant coffee or tea. Having a hot beverage for such a minimal level of effort is a million times better than having nothing at all. Buy It - $11.33
