Stock up for holiday season or gift your turkey hunter “just because.”
You don’t need a special holiday to surprise a gobble nut with a gift, but it is a good reminder to do so.
Besides, a turkey stalker can always use a new vest or a decoy. Practical gifts provide an opportunity to contribute to the hunt and it may just put Thanksgiving dinner on the table.
Help ease the anticipation of the countdown to turkey season and ensure success with our list of gifts for turkey hunters.
Our Top 13 Best Gifts for Turkey Hunters
It’s either gobbling season or it’s time to think of a unique gift idea your hunter will appreciate.
You might not know much about wild turkey hunting, but we do. We’ve compiled a list of specific gifts for hunters that can be used in the hunt, to prepare for the hunt, and to make a hunt more successful.
Turkey season may be the time for giving.

Got a shotgun with a rib width of 3/8”? The Gobble-dot 3-dot sight #TG944B will fit your barrel perfectly. It’s the ultimate turkey hunter sight and mounts easily without having to incorporate tape or magnets.
Fiber optics are green in the rear with a .029” diameter and red in the front with a .035” diameter. It fits tight and snug once it’s on and that’s what you need – reliability considering you’re mounting this to a 10-gauge, Mossbery, Weatherby, or a Winchester shotgun. The all-metal construction ensures superior durability.
There are other sizes available, but be sure to properly measure the vent rib before you order.

3. Kryptek Arma Neck Gaiter
Turkey hunt clothing is typically lightweight and keeps you cool, but there are plenty of frosty mornings where covering up the nose, mouth, and neck can help to keep warm. Enter here, a neck gaiter made by Kyrptek.
You’re paying more for the moisture wicking benefits of polyester and the thermal regulation of a merino wool backer. Staying dry and warm on chilly mornings is essential, and with the Kyptek Altitude pattern, the hunter won’t have to paint their entire face for camouflage. Got to love the double-duty benefits!
4. Allen Shotgun Shell Belt/Bandolier

The belt has a quick-release style buckle made from plastic, is adjustable up to 52” waists, and the nylon material will hold up for many turkey hunts, target practices, clay shooting, and more. The 25-shell belt is convenient, incredibly affordable, and it does the job. Consider this gift idea for the deer hunter in your life too.

The mask can be worn to expose the eyes and there is a hole for the mouth for easy access to food and water. When the hunters start calling, they can flip down the mesh for a complete disguise, and of course, to keep the mozzies out.
It’s a one-size-fits-all mask, but it does have an adjustable strap on the back for those with smaller noggins. It can be laundered in the washing machine without ruining the leaves, but it’s best to hand-wash it. This face mask will also make a great bowhunters gift.

How do you kill something you can’t see? Although you may not be taking down gobblers in the wide, open plains like you do deer, thick brush and scrub can obscure your gobblers that, let’s face it, don’t always gobble.
A compact pair of binoculars like this Carson RD 8x26 is the way to go. Wear it with a harness to keep it from flinging around when you’re crawling on your belly, and its light weight will keep it handy without being cumbersome.
