Father’s Day is coming up on June 19th, 2022. Not sure what to get for dad this year? We have 7 great Father’s Day gift ideas for the hunters in your life.
Caribou Gear Game Bags
Planning a hunt this year with your dad? Get him a new set of Caribou Gear Game Bags that will last for many years. From antelope to moose and from frontcountry to backcountry, we have specialized game bag sets to fit any hunting adventure.
Our Magnum Pack Series is ideal for those want the most robust game bag system. And our High Country Series is designed for the weight-conscious backcountry hunter. Within each of these series, we offer sizes to fit any big game species.
No matter which set you choose, every single one of our game bags is built with the Caribou Gear proprietary, patented fabric. Unlike any of the knock-off nylon game bags on the market today, this unique fabric is designed for hunters who are passionate about meat care. It breathes and it protects. Caribou Gear Founder Ted Ramirez has successfully kept moose meat in great condition for up to two weeks on remote trips in Alaska.
On top of providing excellent meat care, Caribou Gear Game Bags are durable and totally washable. A set of game bags is a great gift because they’ll last for many years. They are the world’s only patented game bag, and there’s nothing else like them.

Meat Care Accessories
Along with those game bags or as a standalone gift, we carry some unique meat care accessories that make great gifts for dads who love bringing home delicious wild game meat.
First, consider a Caribou Gear Hunter’s Tarp. This multi-purpose tarp weighs a mere 4.3 ounces. It’s perfect for quartering and deboning meat in the field. Using the 4 included stakes, lay it on the ground to provide a surface to place quarters, keeping them clean and dry. The Hunter’s Tarp is waterproof, making it an ideal pack liner when hauling meat. It will keep the blood contained, and your backpack clean. Plus, the Hunter’s Tarp can be used as a lightweight storm shelter or glassing shelter. Check out the Hunter’s Tarp here.
Another must-have meat care item for all hunters is the Caribou Gear Citric Acid Spray. This food grade spray is naturally antimicrobial, kills bacteria and repels insects. It’s an essential item for bringing home the best tasting wild game. For convenience and lightweight design, our Citric Acid Spray comes in a dry formula along with an applicator spray bottle. Simply combine the formula with clean drinking water, shake and apply. Click here to learn more and add it to your Father’s Day Gift.
Finally, any meat care kit isn’t complete without high quality, durable paracord. Getting quarters off the ground where the air can circulate all around the meat and where it’s protected from coyotes and other animals is critical. For hanging quarters that can be used with our Caribou Gear Game Bags, we offer pre-cut and tied quarter lashings. These are ready to go, perfect for hanging quarters from a meat pole or branch. We also offer uncut lengths of our high quality 7-strand 550 paracord. Either of these make a great addition to any hunter’s kill kit.
Koyukon Dry Bags
Another great idea for a unique Father’s Day gift is a waterproof duffel bag or roll top dry bag from Koyukon. These Koyukon waterproof bags incorporate a number of innovative features, addressing many of the issues that we’ve experienced with other waterproof bags. They are built with extremely high quality materials. Not only are they tough, but also they are highly functional and well designed. Take a look at the entire lineup of Koyukon bags here.
Seek Outside Tent
We are thrilled to be able to offer Seek Outside tents in the Caribou Gear store. We have been using these innovative backcountry shelters for years. There is simply no option that offers a better space-to-weight ratio for comfortable backcountry travel along with the ability to add a lightweight, packable titanium wood stove. They are well designed and made right here in Colorado.
A Seek Outside tent would make an unforgettable Father’s Day gift for any dad who enjoys backcountry hunting, fishing and camping.
Stove System & Backcountry Meals
Speaking of great backcountry gear, we rely on Jetboil stove systems when we’re on remote hunting and fishing trips. They are lightweight and fuel efficient, making them a great companion for any hunting adventure. Boil water in a snap for that morning cup of coffee or a hot meal on your next backpacking adventure.
Along with a new stove system, consider getting Dad a few of his favorite backcountry meals from Peak Refuel or Mountain House. You can find Jetboil stove systems and meals here.
Tactical Hunting Belt
Dads can always use a great belt and you won’t find a better one than the Caribou Gear Tactical Hunting Belt. We designed this belt to keep hunting pants secure under any conditions. No matter the weather or situation, this belt will not stretch, even when it’s wet or under the weight of a heavy sidearm. It’s slim enough to ride comfortably beneath the waist belt on your backpack. This unique combination of a slim design and total stability is exactly what a dad needs in a hunting Belt.

Finally, if you have no idea where to begin, you can’t go wrong with a gift card. Because who wouldn’t appreciate a shopping spree for some new hunting gear? We have Caribou Gear gift cards available in increments starting at $10. Pick up a gift card and let your dad pick out exactly what he needs for the upcoming hunting season.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
