    Hi Russ,
    Welcome to the site. I think that Griff has mentioned most things but it really depends on were you are stalking and what time of the year. Today I went stalking on the small patch of farmland I have.
    I took:-
    bino's, knife, rifle, ammo, Roe sack.
    If I was stalking in Scotland I'd have taken alot more gear! If you are stalking with another stalker that you have been invited to stalk with or have paid to take you out, ask them what you will need. My first stalk the stalker told me, no army surplus gear, smart countrymans attire only! Its the same with your kit, snow shoes and distress flares are a bit much for Roe buck stalking in the New Forest in April.

    An additional important piece of kit. A puffer container 3/4 filled with Johnson's Baby Powder. A shake, couple of puffs gives you indication of wind speed and direction.
