Let’s face it: it’s not always easy shopping for the outdoorsman in your life. Hunting and fishing enthusiasts tend to have everything, or have very particular tastes. We’ve assembled a list of some of our favorite gift ideas to help make shopping for the fly fisherman, hunter or shooter in your life an easier process.
The Midland 2.0 camo hunting shirt is one of our best selling hunting shirts at Gordy & Sons. It was designed out of a need for a brush country camouflage that actually conceals us hunters in the field. The photorealistic patterns on the market with sticks and leaves didn’t quite conceal us in the unforgiving brush, so we created something better. Wear this camo for dove, quail, whitetail, hogs or any other game animals that frequent the thorny thickets, dead mesquite and underbrush.
This lightweight shirt doesn’t stick to your skin like a trash bag. It’s made with 100% Nylon Supplex, which provides durability and a soft hand-feel. Do yourself a favor: throw out your cheap, plastic feeling hunting shirt you bought at a big-box store and up your hunting game with a Duck Camp hunting shirt in Midland 2.0 camo. Doves and high plains/grasslands game animals: beware!
