Day 3 of my holiday shopping spree for bow hunters is loaded with gift ideas for any hunter you are buying for this season.
Item number 11 on my list of holiday gift giving is for the cross bow hunter in your life. Carbon Express, the leader in arrow technology, innovation, and precision expanded its premier crossbow line with the addition of the Covert SLS, a slim-line designed crossbow that allows for easy maneuvering from both ground blind and treestand.

No hunter is complete without a quality pair of optics, which brings us to number 13 on my list. Bushnell Legend Ultra HD binoculars are tops in my book. I recently took them with me on a hunt where I fell 150 feet down the side of a ravine and they took every bit of abuse as I tumbled to the bottom. Along the way to the bottom, I lost one of the eye relief caps, but the binoculars worked just fine. Because they use high quality components to make their optics, Bushnell can make its bullet proof guarantee. If you take their binoculars into the field for a while and if you're not convinced they're everything you've ever wanted in binoculars, they'll buy them back no questions asked.
The key to making such great optics is their superior light transmission in their Ultra Wide Custom Band anti-reflective lens coating. For the ultimate high-definition viewing experience and sharp, color-true detail, they use ED Prime glass. Add the all-weather assurance of RainGuard HD anti-fog technology, and you're holding a best-in-class performer at no risk, all reward. Again, they are guaranteed: no questions asked.
The Legend Ultra HD binoculars are loaded with standard features such as:
ED Prime Glass
•Ultra Wide Band Coating
•RainGuard® HD water-repellent lens coating
•Ultra wide field-of-view
•Lightweight, magnesium chassis
•Soft touch grips
•Includes premium carry case, neckstrap, microfiber lens cloth and deluxe

Number 14 on my list is also from Bushnell. Today's bowhunter is not complete without a range finder, and there is not a better one on the market than the G-Force 1300 ARC. With the G-Force 1300 ARC, Bushnell has put lightning speed and unrivaled precision in the hands of hunters.
It is equipped with their newest turboprocessor, the E.S.P. (Extreme. Speed. Precision) Turboprocessor. The all-new G-Force 1300 ARC is a performance-enhanced version of the most accurate laser rangefinder system in the world - Bushnell ARC. It delivers industry-leading 1/2-yard accuracy and 1/10-yard display precision. With Vivid Display Technology™ (VDT), you get bright and clear distance readings, even in low light, with an effective range of 5 to 1,300 yards. The display shows up in bright red, making it even easier to read than ever before. ARC Bow and Rifle Modes make you deadly accurate in all seasons and all terrain. And its rubber-armored metal housing makes it the toughest laser rangefinder Bushnell has ever created.

The final item for day 3 and number 15 on our list of 25 is for the hunter that is looking for the Cadillac of hunting blinds. Redneck Blinds has just what you are looking for. The premium manufacturer of 100% fiberglass blinds, introduced The Buck Palace in 2012, a 360 6x6 bow and gun combo blind perfectly designed for hunter's seeking the best of both worlds in blind performance. The Buck Palace is extremely roomy and specifically designed to accommodate up to four hunters.
The Buck Palace is the newest addition to the Redneck 360 Combo Series blinds. The blind features huge 46" tall bow windows that allow hunters to shoot from virtually any position within the blind at any angle. The 46" tall windows are also great for youth gun hunters as they allow for more flexibility in shot angles that shorter hunters cannot get out of conventional gun windows.
The enormous size of the blind makes it an incredibly spacious area to maximize comfort during long days in the woods. It is the perfect blind for parents and children to use when family hunting. All windows are tinted, tempered automotive glass, which helps camouflage movement inside the blind. Every Redneck Blind is made with 100 percent fiberglass to ensure a durable and sound tight product. The fiberglass molded exterior is composed of a UV protected gel coat that won't peel or fade, making the blinds virtually maintenance free. The tempered automotive glass windows feature whisper quiet hinges, giving the hunter the best advantage when taking that trophy shot. In addition these blinds offer a one-piece roof to ensure a weather tight finish, along with a high density, marine carpeted fiberglass floor that will not rot and prevents varmint damage.
A 5ft or 10ft stand can also be purchased with each blind. The stands are composed of heavy black powder coated 3/16" thick 2" bent iron for outstanding support, not thin tubing like most stands. The porch allows easy access to the blind, and assembly is a breeze with a one-size fastener to eliminate the need for extra tools.
