Thread: My first stalk.

  1. #1

    My first stalk.

    Hi fellas...

    I'm going on my first stalk at the end of November.

    As you can imagine I'm running through my gear hoping I have everything...

    Can you help me along by listing things that are essential on a stalk.

    Thanks for any help..

    Where are you going Steve?
    If it is the highlands then find some energy to take with you!!

    Two good knives. a main one and a spare,
    Toilet roll in a water proof re-sealable bag,
    A good pair of shooting gloves,
    A spare change of clothes,
    A flask of tea/coffee.

    These may seem a bit of an odd choice, but believe me there will be times that you don't take them and you will later wish you had!

    Bang stick, bigger and louder the better.

    Seriously though, November, waterproof coat and something to wipe dry optics.

    Good water proof boots that you have worn in! Nothing is worse than buying some 'Gucci' hunting boots putting them on brand new and going off stalking. Your feet will be a mass of blisters and your lead stalker will glare at you every time they 'Squeak' loudly.
    Been there done it, I now wear the same hunter wellies I've had for ten years.

    Good luck and remember loads of photos please!

    good set of sticks and pratice setting them up and leaning the rifle into them if you are borrowing an estate rifle just use a broom stale type object nothing worse than trying to get to a tree or post while all those sets of eyes are looking at you or being told to shoot free hand when the shakes hav set in good luck
    ps if out on the hill ignore last comment and use your rucksack
