With Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to find Dad a gift to accompany him on all of his outdoor excursions. Here are some Father’s Day gift ideas for the dad who loves to hunt and fish:
For the Dad Who Loves to Fish:
Let’s be real. America’s greatest pastime isn’t really baseball. It’s fishing. After all, who doesn’t remember fishing with their dad as a kid?
Here are a few gifts to help dads continue to pass those priceless memories on for generations to come…
Starting at only $119.99, STRIKER fishfinders are available in several sizes and with varying sonar options. Stack the odds in your dad’s favor while fishing with a STRIKER fishfinder with built-in GPS and a CHIRP sonar transducer. There’s so much value packed into a single unit, we believe the STRIKER 7sv the Best Fishfinder Under $500 available today.
If he is a more advanced angler and wants built-in maps, Garmin echoMAP CHIRP chartplotters are a fantastic budget-friendly option. With crystal-clear CHIRP sonar and built-in LakeVü HD maps that feature more than 13,000 lakes with 1-foot contours, finding where the fish are hiding will be easier than ever before.
For the Dad Who Loves to Hunt:
Give the gift of peace of mind this Father’s Day. Everyone in your family will celebrate Dad having our new inReach Explorer+ or inReach SE+ satellite communication devices. When Dad’s out hunting where there are no cell towers, he will be able to send you text messages and breadcrumb trails with his GPS location. In the case that unfortunate events were to unfold, the inReach also includes an SOS button to communicate directly with first responders and help aid search-and-rescue operations.
For the DogFather:
Dog training season is in full swing and a new e-Collar would be a perfect gift for all dog dads out there.
Your dad’s next training session will be a breeze with our Simple and Intuitive e-Collar Training solution. The Garmin Sport PRO is loaded with features and is extremely easy-to-use for both beginner and professional trainers.
If your father wants an all-in-one solution for his hunting dogs, you can’t go wrong with the cream of the crop when it comes to e-Collars. With built-in GPS for tracking and training, the Garmin Alpha 100 can do it all!
For Every Outdoorsy Dad:
It’s 2017 and smartwatches are the must-have gadget, making the easy-to-use Garmin fēnix 5 series GPS smartwatch the perfect gift this Father’s Day. It’s the perfect daily wearable for anyone from outdoorsmen to triathletes. The fēnix 5 series combines GPS with activity tracking features, Elevate wrist heart rate technology and advanced fitness metrics, creating the ultimate smartwatch. It will even connect with smartphones via Bluetooth for text and call alerts. Over in the Connect IQ Store, you can download apps, widgets and watch faces. Best of all, you can upload a photo of yourself on Dad’s watch to remind him that you’re his favorite child using our Face It watch face app.
We all love to capture memories to relive the most memorable moments and share with our family and friends. Pick up a Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 action camera for Father’s Day so he can relive the catch and the hunt.
We hope we’ve helped you find the best Father’s Day gift for the outdoorsy dad in your life. In the meantime, don’t forget to follow Garmin Fish & Hunt on social media and share your fishing and hunting photos with us using #FishGarmin and #HuntGarmin for a chance to be featured on our channels!
