If you’re looking for the perfect gifts to buy those special archers in your life this holiday season, Lancaster Archery Supply has you covered.

We know that scrolling through the thousands of items on can be a daunting way to find a gift.

So our experts here at Lancaster Archery put their heads together and came up with gift suggestions that are sure to put smiles on the faces of a broad range of archers.

We’ve broken them down into six different archery style categories, so you can pick from whichever archery style matches the archer for whom you’re buying a gift. And we’ve got gift suggestions for under $50 and over $50.

Every compound target archer has binoculars or a spotting scope to track his or her arrows. Help them keep their glass clean with the Vortex Optics Fog Free Lens Cleaning Kit.

Compound target archers are going to want to fletch their own arrows, and they’re going to want to be able to do so using a variety of fletching styles – 2-inch vanes, 5-inch feathers, etc. –  in a variety of configurations. They can do all that and more with Last Chance Vane Master Pro Fletching Jig.




UNDER $50:

Olympic archers spend a ton of time shooting outside on open fields. They need protection from the sun, which they can get with the Lancaster Archery Supply Flexfit Bucket Hat.

Olympic archers keep meticulous track of the number of arrows they shoot. This helps them regulate their training through a competition season. They can easily keep track of their arrows with the Booster Arrow Counter.


OVER $50:

Olympic archers can’t make adjustments if they can’t see where their arrows are hitting, and 70 meters – a common competition distance – is a long way from the shooting line. Help these archers pinpoint exactly where their arrows are hitting the target with the Vortex Optics Diamondback Angled Spotting Scope (20-60×60), and the Vortex Optics High Country Tripod Kit.

Seldom are there racks for hanging up bows on the 3-D archery course. When archers have to pull arrows or wait for their turn at the line, they’ll need to set down their bows somewhere. With the TruGlo Wide Limb Bow Jack Mini they can set their bows upright, on the ground, while keeping their cams and accessories out of the dirt.



OVER $50:

There can be a lot of down time on the 3D range, especially while waiting for other archer to take their shots. And there’s a ton of gear 3-D archers need to carry – tools for making repairs, rain gear, food, etc. With the Cottonwood Outdoors Spider Shot 3-D Tournament Seat, your favorite archer can carry all the necessary gear, and have a place to sit while waiting at the line.

There’s a right way to string and unstring a recurve bow and a wrong way. The Selway Limbsaver Recurve Stringer enables archers to always complete these tasks safely and securely.

The newest craze in the trail camera world is for bowhunters to have cameras that will text or email photos straight from the field to their phones, tablets or computers. No longer will they have to drive to their hunting spots and pull SD cards to see what game has been running around. That technology is available with the HCO Spartan GoCam IR Wireless Scouting Camera (Verizon).
