Archery Not Everyone Has Big Stockings to Fill

Not Everyone Has Big Stockings to Fill

11 days till Christmas, stocking stuffers, chocolate coins, candy canes, and stuffed elf feet poking out the top of stockings.
It’s the small things…

The Little Things They’re Just As Crucial

I know my last stocking stuffer suggestions may have been a little over the top for some, I’ll dial it back a bit. Maybe you don’t have such a big stocking to fill and that’s okay, the little things are just as important. 

What could an archer use in their stocking? So many things but let’s narrow it down a little, (emphasis on “little”). I know archers consistently workout to increase their draw strength, right? Here’s the perfect tool to measure with so they can tell their friends when they reach their desired goal, (which just happens to be more than them). Oh I haven’t mentioned it yet, the Allen KNetix Newton Digital Bow Scale. It measures the max peak draw weight of 220 lbs, really! I can’t even imagine! 

After they’ve reached their desired peak draw weight they’ll need to sharpen their broadheads for that big game hunting trip you planned for them using the Thorn Broadhead Sharpener. This will assure the impact is sharp and successful. That’s what you want for them, right? See what the little things provide, without them who knows what would happen. 

Hear Me Out For Just A Moment

Without sharp broad heads the hope for a harvest may be decreased. I’d imagine dull broad heads may decrease the penetration and limit the spin, once it enters the flesh followed by vitals. That will limit the damage to the game, that is the opposite of what you’re going for, you want maximum damage, right?

When they’re finished sharpening their broad heads and hunting, wouldn’t it be convenient to have an Allen Titan Broad head Box to keep them safe and sharp during the commute? It’s a great way to stay organized. It also diminishes the chance of little Mckenzie hopping in the back seat and finding that loose broad head. You didn’t think about that, did you?

Besides the operation of the bow, the archer has other responsibilities and that is to maintain their equipment. I know it would mean a lot to them if you added a couple items that help accomplish this goal, prolonging the life of their bow and string. 

Who Doesn’t Appreciate That?

I know you’ve already put your favorite lube in the cart. Is it the TenPoint Flight Rail Lube or the TenPoint String Wax & Conditioner those will help protect the string and your moving parts, (the bows moving parts)? Don’t forget about the Allen KNetix Lumen Bow Tuning Kit it allows the archer to make adjustments as needed. Who doesn’t appreciate that?

stocking stuffer ideas, tenpoint lube, broadhead case, crossbow string wax, multi-plyers, broadhead sharpener, and hanging scale.
Gift That Maintenance Out

Some archers don’t want an entirely new set-up, they’d be off their rocker if they didn’t appreciate an entirely new set-up, but some of the best gifts are ones that will improve or maintain the set-up they already have. 

Don’t you love this time of year? It exercises you to get your mind off yourself and think on others. I don’t know about you but that can be a tough and maybe nearly impossible feat that we could all use some practice in. 

Do your loved ones a favor, consider them while stuffing their stockings. Whether big or small, as long as it’s a full “footed” consideration of them, that’s all that matters. Don’t be a jerk, get them gifts they can use!

  1. TBB,

    For the compound bow and traditional bow shooters there
    are “consumables” like judo-points and broadheads are always needed (just be sure to match the weight and brand being used). Ditto for arrows/bolts, you can never have enough of those.

    Bow strings, string silencers, serving thread and some of the arrow support styles need to be replaced regularly and it’s always good to have a spare.

    A fetching jig (or two or three), plus vanes/feathers and adhesive are good stocking stuffers for those who like to maintain/make their own arrows/bolts.

    I like solid two edged broadheads (used to make my own from circular saw blades) and found that polishing the cutting edge with a Dermel red oxide “cutoff wheel” did a great job preparing it for final honing.

    I used to do most of my maintenance and arrow building in the winter so there were always some good gift options Christmas stocking stuffers.

    Cheers and Merry Christmas to you!

    Oh, this is the Dremel cutoff wheel that I mentioned…

    • Thanks Hank!

      You made my point better than I could have, there are always useful archery geared things to stuff stockings with no matter how small the stocking is or your bank account. Thanks for adding ideas to my list!

      Cheers and Merry Christmas to you as well!

    A bit off topic but an enabler.

    Would love to see an Adult Bow with a 10 lb pull offered as a Kit. I’ve always had an interest but did not want a higher powered bow as a starter since I would be limited to target shooting in my backyard at about 10 meters or less. BTW, surprised that you do not cover blowguns, tons of fun.

    Kind Regards
