I have recently took up stalking and have had a few trips out. I asked a lot of questions on here about equipment and thought it only right I let you know my opinion on the gear i have been using.
I use a Tikka T3 Stainless lite 6.5x55
Zeiss Duralyt 3-12x50
Can't really fault them, the T3 is smooth but does have some plastic that I don't like but the gun does, it shoots great groups. So if they break i'll replace em with metal if they don't i won't. Common sense?
I really wanted a handmade knife and probably will get one. But as I was not in a position yet I bought a Frost for a tenner. Guess what? I lost it first outing haha just as a lot of you said might happen.
Right, I was really strongly advised to buy sworo's for £1200 because the extra clarity would be worth it in low light. I think you are wrong. Because I don't have a swaro scope so i paid just less than £200 inc p&p for apair of:
Opticron Verano BGA PC Oasis 8 x 42 Binoculars
I absolutely love them, and they just out perform my scope when in a high seat as the day ends. I would of been gutted if I could see for an extra 10 mins but couldn't shoot and paid a grand extra for it. So make sure you buy a scope bino match, and consider the performance of both. I could see loads of stuff after my eyes failed with this combo.
Sealskinz shooting gloves are the biz, warm dextrous I just love em.
Next on the list is a BMH lol cos i'm really into this stalking thing
This is me with a Chinese Water Deer I got last weekend from a weekend stalking lot for 2 I won from a gamekeepers charity auction. Great times
