Thread: what else do you take with you on a days hunting

  1. #1

    what else do you take with you on a days hunting

    We all have our traditions and superstitions, but what do you take with you apart from your gun and ammo?

    I never leave without my knife, a fire steel and a length of parachute chordage

    What strange items do you take?

    A german hunting knife my Dad brought me when I was thirteen or fourteen (just turned 45). Would never pass scrutiny at DSC1 or 2 as it is the traditional leather and antler bolster, good steel, devil to keep clean and rust free, but can't leave it behind! Zeiss monocular. Enough ammo to start third world war, "T" shaped bone saw and a good length of nylon rope.

    A thermos flask the size of a milk churn. I leave it in the farmer's barn and remember I left it there two weeks later! Snipers veil, although I never wear it because I can't see sod all through it!

    Paper towel or toilet paper. You need this to wipe off the moisture on your scope and bino's, certainly in Scotland. I also use it to test the wind with if I need to by tearing off very tiny pieces, and of course if you get caught short its better than a handful of Sphagnum moss !!!!! Although its not too bad, providing you pick out the pine needles before you use it

    I do not carry lucky charms on me. Although I do have a solid silver Cape Buffalo head about the size of a ping pong ball, which is fitted to the interior of my truck. It was bought by a very good american friend of mine who I took on a Cape Buffalo hunt in 1998. He bought it to commemorate the hunt of a lifetime and my birthday, and it is one of my most treasured items. Unfortunatly he passed away suddenly Christmas before last, but everytime I look at the Buff head, I think of him and all the great times we had togther in Scotland, Africa and America.

    My shooting coat is full of weird stuff,
    Latest addition is one of those folding stanley knifes with a carpit trimming blade for gutting rabbits,
    also disposable gloves small first aid kit with small mirror (for getting stuff out of your eye) toilet paper, FAC,Fox whistle.
    It,s a good idea to carry a few plasters and a litle dressing or two plus take the time to learn how to use them, I cut my hand once while building a Pheasant pen on the top of a hill, i dropped a saw and stupidly caught it.
    Every finger on my right hand was cut to the bone and the only thing i had was my t shirt, i tore it into strips and cable tied the strips to my fingers. next time i took a first aid kit.

    Dog? And dog food, if you are away for a few days, not that i am superstitious, but i have a feeling that if the dog wasn`t fed she would refuse to look for a deer , like has already been said, bog roll Mini first aid kit,etc

    I've mentioned it before but if I'm on my ground all day stalking and doing a bit of coppicing or wood cutting, I take my Kelly kettle. Nothing beats the smell of a wood fire, chainsaw oil and fresh tree sap!
