Gadgets have become as common as mistletoe at Christmas. Really, no Yuletide wish list is complete with out some newfangled, digital something-or-other inked on it. That goes for hunting must-haves, as well. The age-old pursuit has adopted every stripe of pixilated miracle of modern invention, all meant to help put trophies on the wall and meat on the table. Here are three digital accessories from ShopDeerHunting.com that the cutting-edge hunter in your life is certain to go gaga over this Christmas.
Keep your favorite hunter warm and toasty during hunting season with these innovative insoles. ThermaCell’s ProFLEX Heavy Duty Heated Insoles keeps Jack Frost from nipping at the toes with three heating settings. But what makes these gems so innovative is how your hunter dials up the perfect temperature (100, 110 and 115 degrees) for his feet. With ThermaCell’s app, the insoles are controlled from the convenience of a smart phone. This means there’s no extra gear for your gamesman to pack in and out of his honey hole, making deer season just a bit easier and definitely warmer. ProFlex offers up to 8.5 hours of warmth from a 2-hour charging of its lithium-ion polymer batteries, which can be switched out without removing the insoles. The insoles are antimicrobial, meaning that even after a long day heating up feet in the field they won’t stink up the join when your hunter takes his boots off.
