A buddy at work invited me to hunt his farm in doe season. Actually my load planner/manager (I’m a trucker). I have never hunted a private piece of ground and I am super pumped. A nice place, lot of deer stands. Now I already feel a debt I owe him, I plan to ask if I can bring my daughter to shoot a doe instead. But anyway what should I bring him? He’s a fisherman and obviously a deer hunter. I am not showing up empty handed, what would you bring out for a gift when invited to hunt a farm.

There is a fellow from this forum who has been bringing his youtes up to hunt the late season on my place for 8 to 10 years. He always gives me a gift card for a local restaurant, very thoughtful and my wife and I greatly appreciate it. I never expect or want anything but it is very nice of him to bring us a gift we both can use.

Personally I would make sure he drinks before gifting him a bottle. Some folks keep demons corked up in them bottles.
If he drinks that is a great choice, if not maybe a dessert?

I second the gift card, so his wife will be able to use it, whether to a resturant in the area or a grocery store etc...

Lots of ideas, unless you know the booze can be a bad idea. A nice country cured ham. Restaurant gift card. He fishes, bass pro card. A decent (not hickory farms) sausage and cheese and snacks basket. Telling him and following thru you'll help work plots or whatever next summer.

Think he will have an aversion to you asking to bring someone else?
He has lots of stands already set, the more the merrier I say.

When I stay in my former bosses cabin I try to bring him a big thick prime ribeye steak. Everyone loves a good steak dinner after a day of hunting. Buying gifts for a guy like him is tough so I feel providing a nice meal is my best option. He doesn’t drink or keep any alcohol around so that is out.

All these suggestions are good. Playing on what boot heel said, offering to bring everything for a nice dinner would be good of you. A friend at work took me to his lease this year. I paid for the hotel and bought him breakfast on the way up. His wife packed food for both of us for the other meals which was awesome.
