 Achieve Ultimate Fan Status

 Stay Outdoors-y, Dad

Give dad the perfect accessory for his fishing and hunting excursions. The GameSaver® Outdoorsman™ GM2050 Food Preservation System seals in freshness up to five times longer and creates air tight packages of fresh trout fillets or venison chops for the freezer. It also protects Dad’s gear, keeping moisture out so his tools will never let him down in the field.
