    Must have's on a stalk

    Hi All,
    sorry if this has been covered before, but i would like to know what all you experienced stalkers think are the must have items when out stalking?
    Obviously the rifle etc..... but what are the the things you cant do without?
    and where do you get these things from?
    thanks

    Have a read through the threads in the Equipment section - for example Starter kit

    I have cobbled my list together just by reading all the equipment threads - as you'll see slightly further down this forum Uttings or Scott Country are good places to look to get kit at decent prices

    Rifle, sharp knife, binoculars. Everything else is a luxury! (The bino's are not even 100% necesserrary)

    The rifle does not need to be Tactical, nor does the scope need to 2.5-35x56. The knife does not need a compass and sewing kit in the handle.

    I will conceed that your FAC if not on your own land may be a good idea.

    In my opinion the binos are necessary..I would not leave the house without them.
    I usually bring some bogroll with me just in case I get short taken. All my other gear is the usual stuff. Small bottle of water aswell to keep the thirst away...

    Access to a good local French restaurant, ideally one built under a brothel and opposite a really good B&B and pub.

    A chocolate bar and bottle of juice.

    Forget the bog roll, use moss !!!
