Wishlist for the Best Hunting Gears For Black Friday

Black Friday is the best day to shop 'cause everything is on sale. While other people are looking to get new phones, the backcountry boys are out to get some gear. Needless to say, Black Friday is a shopping haven for everyone and that includes us outdoor lovers. For a list of things to get this year, have a look at our wishlist of the best hunting gears below!

G30 IR Trail Camera

Maybe it's time to upgrade your old trail cams and get the new G30 IR Trail Camera. Unlike the old ones you use, the photos it takes get higher resolution thanks to the 8mp camera. Furthermore, the housing is a bit smaller than most trail cams making it perfectly stealthy out in the woods.

Summit Dual Pro Deer Stand

Tired of your old single person deer stand? The Summit Dual Pro accommodates a total of two persons on the stand allowing for a partner to film or hunt along. It sure won't get lonely up there while you wait for the trophy buck of your hunting career!

Savage Arms Axis II 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle

Who knows, this might be the Christmas you get a hunting rifle for a present! I'd definitely want a Savage Axis II chambered in 6.5 Creedmore for a powerful hunting rifle. Thus, it makes its way to our Black Friday wishlist for the best hunting gears.

Carbon Express Maxima Blue Streak Arrows

Have you checked your arrows recently? Maybe it's time to get a whole new set of arrows this Christmas. Well, the Carbon Express Maxima Blue Streak arrows will lighten up your mood. You can get them for your friends and family but of course, getting them for yourself isn't the worst idea.

Mossberg MVP Light Chassis Rifle

If you're more into rifles like me, you'd get yourself a Mossberg MVP with an ultra light stock. Getting your rifle an upgrade this season is a great treat. If you get one as a present, I'm sure you'll be grinning while waiting for the hunting season to open.

Nikon M-223 3-12×42 SF Rifle Optics

If you've always wanted the Nikon M-223 SF optics, this might just be the time you get them. As of this year, it's one of the best optics available on the market and probably will for a long time. Wouldn't it be nice to get a shiny new Nikon M-223 optic for your hunting rifle?

Martin Archery Lithium Bow

As for the bow hunters, Martin Archery's Lithium bow is top of the line and is an excellent present for anyone. It offers different pull weights and lengths for all sizes. Furthermore, the material that makes up the Lithium bow is topnotch.

Gerber Bear Grylls Hunting Knife

For a long time now, the Gerber Bear Grylls kept top ranks in the best hunting gears list. As such, it's a worthy pick for a wishlist such as this. Gerber's Bear Grylls hunting knife is the ultimate tool for the outdoorsman; sturdy, razor sharp, and reliable.

Vasque Inhaler II Mid GTX Hiking Boot

GoreTex boots may be a bit pricey but they're sure to protect your feet from wet weather. The Vasque Inhaler II Mid GTX boots will keep your feet dry while hunting on rainy days. If your feet keeps on getting wet on the field, maybe it's time someone took a hint and gave you a pair of them Inhaler II boots!

Cold Steel Mini Tac Skinner Knife

For those who love field dressing their harvest, the Cold Steel Mini Tac might be your go-to skinning knife this season. Or if you know a friend who needs one, give it to them as a Christmas present. The Mini Tac Skinner is one of the best skinners out there and you just might get one on sale!

Tru-Fire Edge Buckle Release Aid

Another item for bowhunters is the Edge Buckle release from Tru-Fire. The heads on this release aid series is smaller than a dime which makes it their distinctive feature. Furthermore, it retains the world class engineering from Tru-Fire that's completely reliable. All in all, it's a small and cheap item that could greatly improve your overall performance in the field.

TenPoint Venom Crossbow

Crossbows are quickly becoming a staple among hunters. Although as of the moment, crossbows aren't as popular as bolt-action or hunting bows. It's not a bad time to start crossbow hunting so if you think this is for you, why not go get it? Or if you already have one, get one for a friend so you'll have a hunting buddy!

Wildgame Innovations Halo XRT Range Finder

This season is a gift-giving one and it's time for gadgets to be updated. Wildgame Innovations' Halo XRT is an excellent upgrade for those who use range finders. An item as awesome as this may be quite hard to find, but if you get a good deal it's worth the effort.

Vortex Optics Diamondback (10×42) Roof Prism Binocular

This next item on our wishlist is a must-have for the hardcore scouter. Scouting is an essential part of the hunting process and having good gear like the Diamondback makes it a lot easier. The Diamondback is one of the best binoculars in the market and you'll love using it on the field.

McMillan A5 Stock

The McMillan A5 stock is popular among custom hunting rifle lovers. It is lightweight as it fits perfectly with all types of shooters due to its adjustable feature. Furthermore, a synthetic stock such as the McMillan A5 is easy to repaint as opposed to wooden stocks with which you'll hesitate on destroying the natural color. Thus, McMillan's A5 adjustable stock takes a place on this wishlist for the best hunting gears.


The LRA's design has the legs connected way above the pivot for better stability. You don't see any other bipod with the same architecture and it's just one of a kind. Although, the LRA's price soars above the $400 mark so it's the best time to get a good deal on this item.

Elite Iron Revolution

The Elite Iron Revolution is simply the best when it comes to flexibility. This bipod can be mounted in all sorts of ways depending on the scenario you're in. Once you see it in action, you'll definitely want to add it in your wishlist as well!

Allen Denali Neoprene Rifle Sling

Is your sling worn out? This year could be the year you get a new rifle sling like the Allen Denali! The Denali is on of Allen's top of the line products and is made from Neoprene material. Neoprene is tough and could withstand rough weather conditions and abuse. If wear and tear is the issue, you'll have none with the Allen Denali rifle sling!

Paracord Sling

If you're into multi-tools, the paracord sling is your best bet. It serves as a rifle sling but when the need arises, you'll have over 20 feet of paracord to use in survival situations. Paracord is made of very strong fibers making it suitable for any outdoor activity like climbing and making shelter.

Badlands Sacrifice Backpack

Backpacks are prone to wear and tear as well and they only last up to a few years. Furthermore, they don't come cheap especially if you fancy the waterproof and sturdy ones. Backpacks like the Badlands Sacrifice is perfect for day hunts and small trips to the wilderness. If you wish for a backpack, wish for the Badlands Sacrifice!

Jewell HVR Trigger

Triggers can play a great role in the success of your hunt. Ones that are too heavy to pull will affect accuracy but ones with too light a pull weight could be unsafe. Your rifle should have something like the Jewell HVR Trigger that's very popular among the pros.

Winchester XPR

Another great rifle to get is the Winchester XPR that's chambered for a few different cartridges. Although this rifle was released in the past years, it still holds a special place in this year's wishlist. I'd surely be happy if I get an XPR this year for a present!

Leupold VX-1 3-9×40 Waterproof Rifle Scope

Rifle scopes ain't cheap as we all know so I'd better take this chance to put more in the wishlist. The Leupold VX-1 Waterproof scope is just too good to pass on. If you're a real outdoorsman, you'll find the waterproofing handy when the weather isn't friendly.

Mathews Halon

Next on the list is the Mathews Halon 2016 which just feels right on the hands. You don't get as good a bow as the Halon with its very smooth draw and high velocity shots. Plus, the bow is very accurate making it an essential pick for bowhunters.

Bushnell PowerSync SolarWrap Mini-Max

For techie hunters, there's a new player in town and it comes in the form of a roll-up power bank.
