First and foremost, the holidays are for spending time with friends and family, reflecting on the little moments in life. They're also a good time to show gratitude and appreciation to those closest to you by giving meaningful gifts. Unfortunately, this can become stressful when you're trying to find the right gift for someone who seems to have it all.
We’ve pulled together ten of the best gift ideas to help make your shopping experience easier this holiday season. Our list will help you find the perfect gift for the bowfisherman in your life. We guarantee these won't just sit on a shelf! And be sure to bookmark this list - these ideas will make for great birthday gifts, too.
Give them something they can wear everyday with a gift from Huk Gear. From rain gear and fleece to performance tees and board shorts, Huk apparel is designed for life on the water. Mens, Womens, and Youth sizes and styles are available.
Polarized sunglasses are an absolute must in bowfishing. It can mean the difference between seeing a carp swim right beneath your boat and only seeing the sun dance across the surface of the water. Costas are some of the best on the market, and there are tons of styles to choose.
A good pair of gloves gives you a huge advantage when you're out bowfishing. These Graves Gloves are light and dexterous enough that you won't even notice you're wearing them but heavy enough to protect against line burn while pulling in the big one or pulling your arrow out of the mud.
4. Oneida Bow
This gift is one of the more expensive ones on our list, but if you’re looking to make your archer angler say ‘wow’ this will do it. Oneida makes some of the best bows on the market. They even have an option to customize colors!
5. Loxley Hat
Let's face it, when most of us head out the door to go bowfishing the last thing we're worried about is how our hair looks. So we toss on a ball cap and head out the door. This high quality six-panel meshback cap has structured front panels and a leather Loxley label on the back. The vintage archer-angler patch on the front was inspired by 1980s hiking bag labels. Choose from grey or black.
One of the most essential pieces of equipment in your tackle box is bowstring wax. It should be applied before and after every shoot to make sure your equipment lasts. This practical choice makes for a great stocking stuffer.
7. Tackle Box
Every bowfisherman needs somewhere to store their extra gear. Bowfishing line, extra tips, slides, pliers, etc. No further explanation necessary. This one has sufficient storage without being bulky.
For long outings or different water depths it’s sometimes necessary to adjust the pullback weight of your bow. A bowstring weight scale is the perfect tool to make sure you’re dialed in for all conditions.
Adjustments for your bow are necessary for a number of reasons, having the right tool for the job is essential. This set is perfect for those quick adjustments we all make occasionally on the fly.
10. Replacement Tips
Sometimes your tips get dull. Whether its from shooting into rocks, mud or just plain overuse. It's nice to have replacements in your tackle box so you can change them out as needed. Loxley sells 1/4-20 replacements and you can find other sizes across the web.
That wraps up our list! Now go get the archer angler in your life a gift that won’t just sit on the shelf. The bowfishing gear above is guaranteed to get used and make the holidays brighter for your favorite archer angler.
Well, January has finally arrived. For those of us here in the north, that means deer season is over and hard water (that's ice for our southern friends) is upon us. Although we still have ice fishing and small game hunting, I use this time to do inventory of my bowfishing gear and determine what upgrades I want so I’m ready by ice off.
Ice off is hands down some of the best shooting you will have all year. Fish are still schooled up and coming in to feed in warmer, shallower waters. That means it’s one of the best times to get on some of the biggest fish you will shoot in one location. As an added bonus, the water is so cold the fishes' metabolism is slowed down enough to make them sluggish. Often times, you can get multiple shots at the same fish without moving the boat.
Anyone who uses a foot controlled trolling motor knows that the Captain Morgan stance isn't comfortable. Steering with one foot and standing on the other goes out of favor within an hour or two. This is where the sexy stick comes in to help. The sexy stick (also referred to as a steer stick) attaches via a plate to the foot pedal. The plate has a welded stick that protrudes up in order to let the operator steer the boat comfortably while standing.
