Please give me some ideas for X-Mas gifts for $50 or under (hunting stuff.) Of course, these gifts would be for a guy. My wife doesn't want anything to do with hunting.

Knife, box of ammo, coat.

Warning: Don't make hunting the main thing you are known by, or else, as the years go by, you will begin drowning in hunting stuff, not being able to find something you know you have, having to figure out how to store all the crap, and you can only carry so much out in the field with you.

I know of which I speak.

Agree with Creekrunner - be careful what you wish for. Not only do you end up with way too much stuff, many times your non-hunting relatives give you items of dubious use/quality.

For my hunting stuff, I stick with the consumables - thermocell, batteries, SD cards, etc. All of thsoe are great ideas under $50.

Decoys if you duck hunt. New release if you bow hunt. New cleaning knife(with shears if a bird hunter) good pair of gloves.

I stand by my original statement, but I'd never heard of this so here's a link: >>>Hunt vault

Looks like pretty good stuff. 'Would be a cool gift for a beginning hunter, of any age.

+1. Breaks my heart when family/friends/acquaintances spend their hard-earned $$ and buy me stuff like cheap “hunting” socks, silly hunting-themed photo frames, etc. Their heart is in the right place, but it’s a waste.

A gift card from Academy, Cabela’s, Bass Pro, Midway USA, etc. is the way to go for hunters IMO.

AMEN!! When I was fishing a lot, I got so many fishing themed home decoration things. It eventually started to annoy me. I understand that my family doesn’t always know which products I want/need so I’d rather them get me something not hunting related that they understand instead of guessing.

This is the way to go! I put a lot of research into hunting gear and clothing to narrow down my selection to items that typically are not cheap. I absolutely hate cheap quality products that don't perform or, are useless in the first place, which is what I would receive if I was given hunting related gifts.
