Christmas list to give the wife....

Here is a question...Does anyone have suggestions of great things to have which may not be obvious to fairly newbie hunters like me? I have rifle, pack frame, bino, rangefinder, knives. Just looking for ideas to give my wife. I am generally a "if I need it I'll buy it " guy but she really wants a list. Give me some good ideas Smile

How about clothing?  Camo

How about clothing?  Camo coat, pants, socks.  There is always a gift card for Cabelas or similar store - not as fun as an actual gift to open, but very useful!

My first would be a new hunting truck, my current one is a 98 chevy. Guess it'll have to last a few more years.
REALLY anything hunting is great, cabelas has it all.

anti-tick clothes

Rynoskinz, Gamehide, Insect shield, or Nosi-Life clothes that will protect you from ticks and such!

I know that you said that you

I know that you said that you had a pair of binoculars but if you are looking at upgrading in the near future Cabela's has a killer deal on a pair of their Euro's. The 10x42 in my Christmas catalog are listed at $549.00 which is $250.00 off of the regular price. The sale only goes on through 11/28.

Just a FYI if you don't know but these binoculars are comparable to Slavoski's.
