Father’s Day Gift Items Outdoor and Hunting Dads Want
Ranger Ready P2 Pak
The Ranger Ready P2 Pak is without question the best protection against ticks, chiggers and mosquitoes. Ranger Ready is a sponsor, and we are excited to talk about them every day but especially in a Father’s Day gift guide because we know that Ranger Ready is the best way to keep dad safe from biting insects. 2021 is shaping up to be a pandemic year for the growth of Lyme disease with a tremendous explosion in ticks expected this year. The Zero Scent P2 PAK comes with a bottle of Permethrin to spray on clothing and Picaridin to spray on exposed skin daily to keep away all biting insects. Check them out at RangerReady.com.
4-Play Turkey Call
Every dad wants 4-Play. The 4-Play Turkey Call is for the hunter who understands that sounding like 4 different turkeys is far superior to sounding like a single bird. This spring, we took the 4-play turkey call and put it to the test. We helped a hunter take her first turkey; it was a thrill we will never forget. Get dad a call from 4-play.
QALO Eva Shockey Collection
QALO has long been known for the best silicone rings in the industry. These are no exception and they are designed by Eva Shockey. She was inspired by her adventures in the mountains of the Yukon and throughout the world. These offer a tremendous alternative to the standard ring and they are safe around unsafe equipment and outdoor work or adventures. Check these out at QALO.
Arctic Zone Expandable Thermal Carrier
We are finally getting back to cookout season, and there is nothing dads like more than a family picnic, neighborhood cookout or a good old fashion pot luck dinner with friends and neighbors. The Arctic Zone Expandable Thermal Carrier allows you to carry hot and cold dishes to any affair in style while still keeping them hot or cold. We found this easy to clean and easy to use. It fits a solid 9 by 13 baking dish. We suggest giving it to dad with a whole dish full of chocolate brownies and a bow on top. Check this out at Arctic Zone!

Lounging around, this robe has a pocket for expensive electronics and a beverage pocket for your favorite frosty beverage. Check these out a California Cowboy.

Somewear – Satellite Communicator
If your dad is bombing off into locations that are hard to reach and lack cell signal like most of the great hunting spots in North America, you might want to seriously consider the Somewear Satellite Communicator as a tool to keep dad in communication with family. This works like a global hotspot and works in every single continent worldwide. It comes with an SOS button should things get a little Western. After testing we will be picking up one of these for our overlanding trips so we are always in communication with family. Check these out at Somewear Labs.
Opinel makes tools that last a lifetime, and every dad wants a knife that he knows he can count on. These steak knives fold up and and can be used in a tackle box, tool box or backcountry mess kit. We have two in our camp kit and they make the perfect knives for cutting steak grilled over an open flame. And the occasional vegetable, but don’t tell our mom.
