Hallo from Belgium . I am a Belgian roughshooter , who shoots almost 100 % over spaniels . When I started shooting I did a bit of high seat "shooting " on roe deer in this country. Highland deer stalking is something that fascinates me already a long time . I plan to make a stalking trip to Scotland by the end of the year . I am mostly intrested in winter hind stalking . I think that the weather in the highlands can be severe at this time of the year. I would like your advise on the best equipment : jackets , trousers , boots ,etc ....
As I have to start from zero , my roughshooting gear wouldn't suit at all , I can as good buy good equipment from the start . I noticed on a few DVD's that more and more stalkers use neoprene lined wellies .
What about muck boots ? A friend uses them for 2 seasons 5 days a week for everything exept rough shooting and tells me he never had such convenient and warm boots. I heard that the Sportchief Aquatex jacket is the Rolls Royce of stalking jackets . True ?? What about Kammo , Deerhunter , Seeland , Fjallraven , Harkila , Jahti Jakt , .... ?
I am not a camouflage man , I more like solid green , but if camouflage is better I wouldn't mind wearing it .
I will post a similar item in the rifle department .
