Tom Beckbe Shell Bag
This weatherproof waxed cotton and nylon canvas shell bag provides a classic look that doesn’t sacrifice durability. The bag holds two boxes of shells for long days afield or at the range, and a bottom zip on one pocket allows you to conveniently release all spent shells at once.
Filson Ducks Unlimited Outfitter Graphic T-Shirt
Let your dad sport his love of the wetlands all while supporting conservation! Filson has teamed up with Ducks Unlimited to help support their mission to preserve wetlands and waterfowl and this 100 percent cotton jersey t-shirt supports that mission. A custom Filson x DU graphic featuring America’s favorite breed, the Labrador, is printed on the back.
Orvis DriRelease Printed Hoodie
The original Orvis brown camo, developed in the 1960s, inspired the print on this DriRelease hoodie for hunters. Soft, super-lightweight, breathable DriRelease dries four times faster than cotton and wicks moisture. Easy stretch allows for mounting and swinging with maximum freedom of movement when a rooster flushes from the cattails.
Gunner Pheasant Snapback
This classic trucker hat is the perfect cap for pops. A 5-panel foam backed hat with a 3mm rope detail and polyester mesh back will bring back past days afield. A patch featuring a timeless rooster flush screams upland hunter.
Leupold Performance Eyewear
Safety is always key when you go afield. The new line-up of performance eyewear from Leupold is the perfect eye protection for uplanders. A multitude of fifferent styles fits all likes and faces. Each pair of glasses is made from ballistic rated materials to withstand high-velocity impacts. Engineered to be lightweight, but still rugged, Leupold didn’t skimp on the glass. A Guard-ion hydrophobic lens coating sheads dirt and water, while a DiamondCoat hardened surface coating reduces surface scratches. Did we mention the lens are shatter resistant?
The Killer in the Woods by Former Gun Dog Editor in Chief, Rick Van Etten
Former Gun Dog Editor in Chief, Rick Van Etten, hasn’t completely retired his writing! Instead of writing on bird dog training, he has turned his pen to fiction writing with his first book in a series of mystery novels. The Killer in the Woods features an unusual hero: a magazine editor, a hunter, and a dog lover who also just happens to be a “hitman with a code of honor.” Occasionally, this sportsman hunts something besides pheasants.

Soggy Dog Gear Bird Bag
This new bird bag is thoughtfully designed and perfect for the sporting dad who spends his summers working with his dogs in the training fields. The bag exterior is made with a PVC coated polyester while the inside is lined with a woven nylon that features a slippery surface to keep birds from climbing. The bag can hold up to 10 pigeons or three pheasants.
Standing Stone Kennels Easylead
You can never have enough leads. The Easylead from the folks at Standing Stone Kennels is made with a durable coated nylon that won’t tangle. This lead is perfect for teaching the heel command. In three easy steps, you can turn this simple leash into a halter style lead to prevent pulling during early heel training. When your dog has progressed, remove the halter and turn it back into a slip lead, and eventually into a simple clip lead. Available in Regular and Extra-Large.
