2016 Father's Day Gifts for the Die-Hard Bird Hunter

2016 Father's Day Gifts for the Die-Hard Bird Hunter

If your dad is obsessed with birds, dogs and guns, then we have the right gear for him this Father's Day. These items are on any upland dad's bucket list, so don't cheap out on a tie. He deserves it. Here are some great items for pops on his special day.

Fabarm-L4S-INITIAL-HUNTER-Fathers-Day-Gift

Fabarm L4S

The L4S Initial Hunter incorporates innovation with tradition. The forend can be removed without disassembling the gun, allowing for routine cleaning. The Fabarm Tribore gentles the shot's trip down the barrel for excellent patterning. Even with the Turkish walnut stock, this gas-operated semi-auto (available in right- or left-handed models) tips the scales at a lean 6.5 pounds.


$1,250-$1,425 | fabarmusa.com



Dokken Dead Fowl Trainer

DOKKEN'S Deadfowl

Whether you refer to it as "force fetch" or "conditioned retrieve," taking a hunting dog through the process is no walk in the park. Deadfowl Trainers offer a unique construction that helps teach proper hold. The hard, dangling head discourages shaking, plus liquid scent can be injected into the soft body for added realism.


$25 | deadfowltrainer.com


DT-Systems-Launcher-Fathers-Day


D.T. BL LAUNCHER

Whether flinging quail or roosters, the BL launchers can introduce pup to birds, or steady a veteran through wing, shot and fall. A side-loading door allows the trap to be locked before a bird is placed. You can link up to 16 launchers to a single remote, and find them all thanks to a loud locating beeper.

$226-$360 | dtsystems.com


SportDog-Brand-Wetland-Hunter-Fathers-Day-Gift

SportDOG Brand SportHunter 825

Sometimes no-frills is all you need. The SportHunter 825 may not be the flashiest remote trainer on the market, but it has everything a handler wants without being overwhelming. A half-mile range is more than adequate for most rangy pointers or retrievers on lengthy blinds.

It's also programmable, with a mode to run add-on beeper collars. Seven instantly selectable stimulation levels with low or medium ranges offer plenty of options to fine-tune a dog's pressure requirements. And the vibration and tone features are great tools if you want to train a more subtle recall command. It's also waterproof, and it charges in two hours.

$200 | sportdog.com


YETI-Hopper-40-Fathers-Day-Gift

YETI Hopper

Don't show up to duck camp like a rookie with that $4 Styrofoam cooler you bought at the 7-Eleven. The new soft-sided tan Hopper (available in sizes 20, 30 or 40), keeps fresh kills fresh for the trip home with 1.5" of closed-cell insulation and Hydrolok zipper.

$300-$400 | yeticoolers.com


Garmin-Virb-Fathers-Day-Gift

Garmin Virb XE

Never forget another hunt with the Virb XE. With the right accessories this mini-cam straps on to your body or even the barrel of your gun, so you can relive successful hunts in 1080p HD video. The Virb has a 12.4 megapixel image processor, up to two hours of battery life per charge and is Wi-Fi capable.
