Lowrance iFinder H20 GPS

Lowrance iFinder hunting gear review

The Lowrance iFinder H20 is not the most sophisticated GPS you can buy, but it certainly gets the job done when mapping your favorite lake, river or hunting spot … at about half the price.

The iFinder is fast at picking up satellites (and even comes with an external antenna port for even better signal), it’s totally waterproof, making it perfect for taking out on the water or hunting inclement weather, and it features a 3 inch back-lit screen for use after the sun goes down.

The iFinder earns a perfect 5 star rating for its ease-of-use and its affordability.

Smart Scouter™ Wireless Digital Game Camera

Trying to find a reliable game camera is a crapshoot. One brand is better than the other brand, depending on who you ask. And reliablity is never guaranteed, even on the most expensive brands. But, there’s a new kid on the game camera block, and its one of the coolest items of the year.

The Smart Scouter takes pictures just like any other game cam, with one exception. No other game cam allows you to view those pictures on the computer, no matter how many miles you are away from the camera.

Yeah it is expensive and requires a subscription, but for most of us, it’s still cheaper than what it costs in gas to go check cams everyday. Rest-assured, it’ll be a holiday bonus put to good use.
