If you’re one of the lucky ones – the truly lucky ones – you learned a passion for hunting from your dad. It doesn’t matter if the species was gray squirrels in the Back 40 or whitetails with family and friends several hours from home, the feeling it gave you was the same: pure joy.
Dads who take the time to teach their children about the great outdoors are a blessing. And if you continue to be blessed with a father who still takes to the fields and forests each hunting season, then check out the selection of Cabela’s gifts shown below as a way to say “thanks” for all that he’s given you.
Cabela’s Gen. 2 Outfitter Trail Camera is only 6.5” tall and takes high-quality 12MP photos during the day and 5MP black and white photos at night with 40 infrared LEDs. Trigger activates out to 85 ft. during the day and 50 ft. at night; 1.2-second trigger speed and adjustable trigger intervals of 10 to 60 seconds. Other features include: field-scan, programmable video mode, 2″ LCD display for instantly viewing images, and waterproof-rated housing. The camera will shoot for 6 months on eight AA batteries (not included). It accepts 2GB to 32GB SD cards (not included). One-year warranty.
The durable stretch 5mm neoprene of these waders provides excellent insulation in the body, while the boots feature 800-gram Thinsulate Ultra Insulation and wool-felt midsoles. Every seam is bonded and taped for superior leakage protection, and double-layered neoprene in the knees reinforce and protect these high-wear areas. Nylon-jersey outer layer adds durability without adding weight, while the nylon inner lining makes for easy on and off. Built-in suspenders with quick-release buckles give a customized fit. Shell holder sold separately. Available in Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Blades or Realtree MAX-5 camo.
With its lightweight design, ample carry capacity and deadly silent construction, this durable Elite Scout Hunting Pack is a perfect gift for the dad who loves hunting with either bow or gun. The backpack’s low-nap shell won’t collect burs or other clingy vegetation. The suspension system adds extra support and lets air flow between your back and the pack; curved mesh-lined shoulder straps with nonslip patches distribute the load evenly. Internal and external pockets keep small items organized, and long-lasting YKK water-resistant zippers keep them dry. The pack includes a 2-liter Source reservoir and pull-out blaze-orange safety panel.
The Cabela’s Deluxe Whitetail 3-D Target is the finest 3-D target you’ll find at this price. Made of dense, flexible, self-closing foam, it’s geared toward the serious backyard shooter looking for realistic practice at an economical price. Able to soak up hit after hit from virtually any bow-and-arrow combination, it will even stop small-diameter, fast-flying carbon arrows. The target has removable antlers and replaceable IBO-marked scoring vital sections. Body length, 43″; total height, 51″.
If you want packable rain gear that will keep you dry, check out the Men’s Space Rain Full-Zip Jacket with 4MOST DRY-PLUS. Made of lightweight polyester interlock fabric for enhanced mobility and durability, this jacket is breathable and 100% waterproof. It packs down to the size of a small water bottle and comes with a handy stuff sack. A drawcord hem, 4″ of extended length and Velcro-adjustable cuffs seal out moisture and wind. Available in Cabela’s Zonz Western, Cabela’s Zonz Woodlands, Realtree XTRA, and Cabela’s Outfitter Camo.
