    It's a no no from me wear mine on a shoot day plus twos would be more practical for stalking not so baggy / snaggy

    They are fairly classic hill-stalking gear, certainly. Plenty of room for crouchin', crawlin', scramblin' and so on, and when wet should hang away from the leg.
    The sporting tailor's in Pendlebury make a thing they call 'stalker breeks' which are in fact plus threes and therefore a little less-emphatically baggy.

    In the northern part of Germany, plus fours were apparently known colloquially among ramblers (who often wore them) as 'Aeppleklauhose' - applethefttrousers.

    just on my experience, they are perfect ----------------- As long as you like ticks

    depending on where you're stalking - if your stalking in a high tick area wear decent trouser type they do keep the ticks out better, or if the ticks aren't a problems decent pair of gaiters they work well together, I found the old type waxed canvas gaiters the best, waterproof and silent they compliment each other

    Good for collecting ticks. I keep mine for wearing when I'm fishing or relaxing. I don't stalk in them anymore. Regards JCS

    What a load of absolute tosh..... You get no more ticks from wearing plus two's, plus fours, deer hunter trousers or the likes of your pro hunter trousers.
    The good thing about plus fours is that during crawling you have a good chance of keeping your knees dry as opposed to plus two''s riding up your legs and soaking you through. As for wearing any sort of trousers with gaiters over the top restricting movement, well no thanks it's not for me.
    Try some, you definitely won't look back., and the tweed dries a lot quicker than the man made trousers.

    Funny that. I can take you to the spot where I sat down in my plus fours to have a break and watch a ride for ten minutes. I can also take you to the doctor who prescribed antibiotics the next day.
