    Hi Stav,

    There have been quite a few threads like this one in recent months so a if you try a few searches you should see even more help on here for finding the right pair of stalking boots. I have a pair of Beretta Ferret boots and they seem ideal for my type of stalking. Mainly Yorkshire woodland in all seasons and a couple of weeks in the highlands during the winter when I just slip on a pair of warmer socks. I did have to do that in the -13C we had in these parts pre Christmas this year though!

    I think it's the same with a lot of things; if you can afford to spend a bit more - do. It'll be worth it.

    I thought this was a good read-


    Graham Downing did a presentation at Sparsholt when I did my L1 there in 2008, nice bloke.

    Good Luck

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    I see you are after stalking BOOKS and not boots! There are lots of good books, some new and some old. Try whiteheads book or one of Priors. A quick search on internet will produce what you are after.
