It’s that time of the year, as we’re heading into the holidays, where there are a lot of folks looking for a gift for their individual whose into the outdoors.
If your outdoor folks are anything like me, if they need something, they simply go out and purchase it.
Well, I’ve been rummaging through numerous sites on the internet and have come up with some great gift ideas for those in your life that love the outdoors.
SneakyHunter BootLamp How many times, when you’re heading for your deer stand, with your backpack full, your gun or bow in your hands while trying to find your way before sunrise where the light from your flashlight you’re holding is lighting up the trees and the surrounding area, alerting everything in the woods that something or someone is walking through the woods?
The new SneakyHunter BootLamps will solve that problem as their lights will light the way and not spook game because they attach to your boots.
The SneakyHunter BootLamps are a great gift for hiking, hunting, ice fishing or just about any outdoor low-light situation.
When you head out before sunrise, you need a light allowing you to see where you’re going, one that lights your way, yet isn’t going to spook game.
By having the light down at your feet and away from your eyes, your visual perception, your night vision is stabilized.
These headlamps for your feet, allow you to light your way hands-free and are the perfect gift for any outdoor person.
SneakyHunter BootLamps attach to your boots via an easy-to-use 18-inch long, 1-inch-wide elastic cinch strap. The hook and loop strap is placed under your instep, and the two prongs on the front of the unit are slipped under your boots shoelaces, resulting in a slip-proof attachment. The unit is made so that when it is mounted in the proper position, the light will shine where you’ll be walking.
These headlamps for your feet allow you to light your way hands-free are the perfect gift for any outdoor person.
The lights on the SneakyHunter BootLamps operate using three AAA batteries and have three settings – white, for general hiking; red and green, for hiking with a soft light that will not spook animals and a violet on the hunter version for blood trailing.
To turn them on you simply push the button on top – one click for white, two clicks for red, three clicks for green, and It’s rated as highly water resistant.
Originally designed to be put directly on the boot, the SneakyHunter BootLamps also work well when strapped on the knees. This directs the light where you are walking and is ideal in situations when walking in water, snow or other inclement ground situations.

If they’re into ice fishing, there are several products out there that would make great gifts or stocking stuffers
Northland Fishing Tackles ¼ ounce Rattlin’ Puppet Minnow® This is a bait, I’ve used while fishing turbid open water with limited visibility and is a bait that will draw the fish in from afar, with its lifelike finish, aerodynamic triangular lipped design, 3-D eyes, it darts and swims like a dying minnow with its glass rattle that attracts the fish, perch, crappie, walleye, trout, and other species, as it’s a deadly all-species lure.
This is a two-way bait which can be fished two ways through the ice or in open water.
On the business end of the Rattlin Minnow you’ll find a #10 2/0 wide gap hook and along the bottom a super sharp treble hook that will hook and hold your fish.
