Righto guys I'm trying to get myself sorted with various basic gear after reading about what is required in particular for stalking.
Before I get flamed I don't mind (and have no shame!) admitting that I am trying to get myself sorted as cheaply as possible for starters coz money is tight! Over time I'd like some better, more expensive gear but that can wait.
What does your stalking kit consist of? Any items that you carry that are essential and others that are just 'handy'?
I'm thinking along the lines of the list below but am I over complicating things?
Small 1st aid kit
Small torch &/or head torch ( I have a cree)
Fixed blade knife with easy clean handle (I have various Frost, Mora, etc)
Sharpening stone (I have a DC4 whetstone)
Deer call (I have a Buttolo)
Small fold up waterproof mat
Bino's on harness
Latex gloves and tissues/wipes
Water bottle & purification tablets
Small pair pruning snips
I have a fair bit of shooting related stuff already but am missing the following if anyone has anything cheap and cheerful knocking around for sale?
Bullet pouch (in pocket or stock mounted)
Binocular harness so bino's sit on my chest better
After reading my list I reckon it would be a good kit to have for walked up and bunny shooting too!!
