3 Stocking Stuffers for Hunters and Anglers

If you have a hunter or angler on your Christmas list, then check out these three stocking stuffer gift ideas.

3 Stocking Stuffers for Hunters and Anglers

I watched a news story recently about FedEx and the reporter said that if you’re ordering something online for Christmas, then the final day to place your order is December 15 to ensure the gift arrives by December 25 (standard ground shipping). With that in mind, here are three stocking stuffers for the hunters and anglers on your Christmas list.

Beef Jerky and Snack Sticks From Wenzel’s Farm

Do you know a hunter, shooter or angler who doesn’t like beef jerky? Me neither. It’s classic roundtrip food, and it’s great in the deer stand or boat, too.

Two product lines I enjoy are from Wisconsin-based Wenzel’s Farm, a premium provider of high-quality, hand-crafted, small-batch meat snacks. The first is the company’s Beef Jerky. It’s delicious, has no artificial colors, no MSG, and is gluten free. It contains 10 grams of protein per serving and is only 90 calories. Wenzel’s Beef Jerky is available in three flavors: Original (my favorite), Teriyaki and Peppered. It can be purchased in 3-ounce (MSRP $6.49) or 10-ounce ($16.99) packages.

In addition to Wenzel’s Beer Jerky, I like the company’s Snack Sticks offerings (MSRP $31.99/16-count box of 2-ounce packs). Available in a dozen flavors, including the newest, Jalapeno Cheddar, Snack Sticks are crafted in small batches using premium cuts of beef, seasoned for flavor and naturally smoked. Like the company’s Beef Jerky, its Snack Sticks have no artificial colors, no MSG, and are gluten free. Of course, Wisconsin is known for its cheese, and the new Jalapeno Cheddar stick features real Wisconsin cheddar.


myCharge AdventurePlus H20 Portable Charger

It’s frustrating — and potentially dangerous — to have your phone die in the field while hunting or fishing. To ensure you always have battery power, it makes sense to carry a portable charger. One I’ve discovered recently that has worked well is the myCharge AdventurePlus H20 Portable Charger.

Specifically, I’ve been impressed with the Adventure H20 6700 portable charger (MSRP $39.99). It has an insulated, ruggedized exterior case that protects it from extreme weather temperatures, and it’s completely waterproof with an IP67 rating. It gives me peace of mind to know my charger will be fully functional even if I drop it in the lake. During my recent November deer hunting vacation in South Dakota, I relied on the charger to give my iPhone a boost during all-day sits in temps below freezing.

I especially like that this charger has two USB ports, meaning I can charge two devices simultaneously. It provides 3.5 extra charges for my iPhone.

It’s compatible with Apple iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS, XS Max, XR, X, 8, 7, 6, SE, 5, iPad, iPod, Samsung Galaxy, LG, Motorola, HTC, Nokia, Blackberry and any other standard USB device. As you can see in the photo above, the Adventure H20 charger includes a built-in carabineer that can be attached to a bag, belt or anywhere else for convenience.


Zone Realtree Insect Repellent Spray

Odorless Zone Realtree Insect Repellent Spray (MSRP $9.99/4-ounce) was designed with the outdoorsman in mind. Picaridin-based (20% formula), and offering 12-plus hours of protection from mosquitoes, ticks, flies, fleas, chiggers, gnats and no-seeums, Zone Realtree Insect formula is safe (DEET-free), effective and ideal for those wanting to fool the nose of deer and other big game.

I used the spray during warm-weather September bowhunts in Wisconsin and it prevented mosquitoes from ruining my time in the field. I arrowed two deer from the ground and both were within 15 yards, so I’m convinced it’s odorless.

I like that Zone insect repellent not only works well on bugs, but its formula is also non-oily, non-greasy and non-sticky, and it won’t harm hunting/fishing clothing or gear. Even though this bug spray was designed for hunters, it’s safe for the whole family. Finally, I very much like that it’s made in the U.S.A. by EPA-approved factories.
