I tend to mix and match really. Some green, some camo and DPM. Most of all I wear what is comfortable. Today I wore my wellies, moleskin trousers and a Larksin green woolly jumper. I saw five Muntjac deer, only one saw me and that was only because It stuck its head out the hedgerow and walked into me!
To be honest I have tried most gear from Sealand green, Highland tweed and Ghillie suits.
Stay motionless and quiet and you will see more deer and save yourself some money.
i wear green usualy my face in envy when i watch the stalkers i take out shoot a deer when it should of been me
no its a great feeling to shoot you first deer and just as satisfying for a stalker to watch you shoot your first one
deer are colour blind so anything out of the ordinary will stand out anything thing that blends in with the back ground will work even blues jeans and a red t shirt if that is what they are used to seeing
good luck on your quest for your first beast
Muntjac are not all that well established in Yorkshire at the present time. I have heard there are pockets of animals in certain places but they do not have a continuous distribution yet. Have you seen many?
right no i have only seen 2 and one of them i would not have seen if it was not for my springer flushing it out by accident i dont realy see that many roe i mainely see them whelst out lamping charley.
I use the Combat 95 DPM shirt in the summer, just right for warm evenings and keeps the chill off at sunset. I use quite a bit of my old kit but unfortunately I left the RN nearly twelve years ago so most of its knackered.
I don't suppose any of you squaddies are in stores at all and have a XXL sniper smock knocking around?
