Are you planning your first stalking trip of the season?
Then K.I.S.S... Keep it Simple Stupid!

Clothing


Suitable and comfortable clothing is a must. Wearing camo will help break up your outline and blend you with your surroundings. Lightweight layers for the warmer months, but waterproof for incement weather will see you right at this time of year. Green is a good early-season pattern.

Binoculars

Having a good clear glass out in the field is essential, make sure you have the right binoculars at the ready. We like the 8x40's with good light gathering capabilities, which will see you through to the last light.

Walking Boots


Make sure your feet are comfortable with a good solid pair of walking boots.They’ll need to have good ankle protection and grip, as you will be walking on uneven surfaces throughout the day.

Shooting Sticks


You may be stalking through woodland and catch a glimpse of your harvest. You don’t want to be grappling, trying to get a steady rest off of a tree trunk or branch, and the chances are that if you lie down to shoot off the bi-pod, the undergrowth could obscure your view. A good set of sticks will assist you in more ways thatn one, they can even be used to support your walking.

A Good Knife


Pulling the trigger is the easy part, you need to know what to do after. This is where a good quality knife comes in handy. Either a folding knife or in a sheath, as long as it is sharp enough to get the job done. You have to be prepared to gralloch your deer in the field.

First Aid Kit


Safety first!! A basic travel light first aid kit in your pack or on your vehicle is a must and will help with any basic first aid for a cut finger, thorn or thistle or a sprained ankle!

You’re sure to have a successful stalking adventure with a KISS.

Good luck and happy hunting!!
