For one reason or another a waterfowler’s gear often needs to be updated and replaced.

1. Drake Waterfowl Refuge Blind Bag

Designed for on-the-go duck and goose hunters, this blind bag is big enough for the essentials and a few extras, and its thoughtful design makes it easy to carry, pack, and gain access to the gear you need. Built with rugged PVC-backed material, it features an internal waterproof liner, adjustable strap, six neoprene shell holders, and an outer storage pocket.

2. Dive Bomb Torch Multi-Beam Headlamp

A headlamp is a can’t-miss gift for anyone who spends time in the outdoors. Dive Bomb’s new model kicks out 1,000 lumens on its max setting and offers five light modes. Powered by a rechargeable lithium battery or three AAA batteries, it is built with aviation-grade aluminum and is also waterproof.

3. Gunner Bumpers

Gunner now offers unique retriever bumpers that are built to last. These bumpers are constructed with DuraTrieve—a proprietary rubber compound that helps improve floatability and longevity. The tapered body reinforces the correct hold position, and the removable cap allows you to put feathers inside for scent training.

4. Drake Waterfowl Ultimate Timber Strap

This timber strap will become your best friend when you’re hunting the flooded woods. It extends to 72 inches, and a spring-open pouch offers easy access to shells. Four coated metal hooks give you handy places to hang guns, jackets, blind bags, and other items.

5. Montana Knife Company Blackfoot Fixed Blade 2.0

This knife offers a well-balanced and durable option for everything from skinning to deboning. The blade is constructed of cryogenically treated 52100 ball bearing steel, which keeps the weight down to 3.6 ounces and makes for easy sharpening. The G-10 handle is lightweight and designed for comfort in the hand. Each knife comes with an open-carry Kydex sheath.

6. Drake Waterfowl Timber Shotgun Loop

This handy loop allows you to hang your shotgun in a convenient, comfortable spot. Made with heavy-duty polypropylene braided cord with a metal swivel stud connection, it ensures that your shotgun is securely connected and always at the ready.

7. Cabela’s Northern Flight Shotgun Shell Holder

This clip-on shell holder helps keep your shotgun shells close by when you need them in a hurry. The stretch-fit shell loops hold up to 24 shells, and the integrated zippered accessory pouch is handy for your license or even a mobile phone.
