Birthday Gift for my Brother

Postby DROPDUX » Tue Sep 06, 2005 5:45 pm

hey all,

I want to get my brother a birthday gift--BD was last month. He is a beginning duck hunter and has waders and a gun already. The next time I see him will be the the day before our opening day hunt. I would like to spend around $40 or so. Right now I am leaning toward a new call, but I don't want to give him something he won't be able to use for the hunt (not a good caller yet).

I am also thinking of a light weight camo shell (he doesn't want/need a 4-in-one or anything heavy like that) obviously it should be water proof. A hood would be nice too, but not necessary. Does anyone know one from experience that fits this description. Or have any other good gift ideas. I didn't seem to see anything at cabelas & I'm going to basspro later.

Thanks,
DD

Get him a call and an instructional CD or cassette to go with it. You can get them in a set.

I would suggest getting him a Rich-N-Tone Quackhead J-Frame Duck Call
and one or two of the Rich-N-Tone Right Stuff Duck Calling CDs.

Not very exciting, but a couple of boxes of shells are always appreciated. Especially the day before the opener. Just a thought.

Thanks, I was thinkin of the quackhead and the shells. Right, not very exciting, but they would be appreciated nonetheless.

I'd get him somthing that he will use for a long time. A great gift to give that he could use forever is a nice leather gamestrap with some loving words engraved. This is a great gift to a duckhunter you truly care about. :thumbsup:
I think a nice one is about $50 or $60

Buy him a blind bag for all of the new stuff he is buying. And then have his name imbroderd* on it. Makes it personal and a gift from the heart is always better than a gift from the pocket book.
