Hunters can be a pain in the a** to shop for, because there’s an overabundance of gear on the market and also an overabundance of gear in most guys’ garages. Out of sympathy for anyone who has a hunter on their shopping list, I’m going to put together the MeatEater’s 12 Days of Gifts Guide. These items are gonna please any hunter out there, no matter how picky or overstocked he or she happens to be. What’s more, these things can be purchased quickly online without having to drive around and endure hordes of competing Christmas shoppers.
Day 7: If there’s one thing you can say about people, it’s this: we all wear clothes, at least some of the time. And if we’re going to be wearing clothes anyways, we might as well wear stuff that makes a statement about who we are and what we stand for. That’s why you need to add some MeatEater merchandise to your Christmas shopping list. Whoever you need to buy a present for, it’s going to look cool on them and it’s going to feel great. While you’re at it, get a t-shirt or a hoodie for yourself. That way, you’ll have your very own wearable conversation piece. You’ll be able to go about your business knowing that everyone will be wondering about that cool-looking logo with the moose skull that has dinner forks for antlers. And then those people will be wishing they had a shirt like that, too. And then they’ll invite you to hunt their property, which hasn’t been hunted for years and is full of giant bucks and gullible turkeys. And then they’ll become ardent supporters of hunters’ rights, and we’ll never have to worry about any infringements on our ability to feed ourselves from the wild. I’m telling you, it’s a magical chain reaction that begins with a single click of your keypad. So what are you waiting for? Get shopping now for MeatEater apparel! We can change the world!
