A one-year magazine subscription is a gift that keeps on giving. Garden & Gun is a bi-monthly print publication focused on southern traditions, including sporting culture, food, and people. Whether your gift recipient wants to learn more about conservation, find new recipes for their weekend away, or laugh at stories about hunting dogs, Garden & Gun includes articles for everyone. The magazine is also a beautiful addition to any hunting lodge coffee table.
Ear protection is crucial when regularly hunting. Orvis’ Adaptive Hearing Protection Earplugs allow hunters to hear what they want while protecting ears from shotgun blasts. The earplugs reduce loud blasts up to thirty-three decibels but reduce general sounds by only five decibels, ensuring voices and other noises can be heard. They’re the perfect stocking stuffer or quick gift for the hunter in your life.
Every hunter needs a quality pair of hunting gloves. Orvis’ Cold Weather Hunting Gloves combine style and function. Providing warmth while still offering dexterity, the palm and fingers of the glove are made of goat leather; the glove is lined with insulation, except for on the trigger finger and thumb.
