The wonder of the world
The beauty and the power,
The shapes of things,
Their colours, lights and shades,
These I saw.
Look ye also while life lasts.

Stalking Gear

Hi Folks
I thought a quick list of the kit I will be dragging round at 5am tomorrow morning may be of interest.
Tomorrow it is fallow deer from a high seat and the forecast is for snow
So 1 set thermal underwear.
2 pairs thermal socks
Mountain t shirt,
Favourite green hunting top.
Deerhunter Montana jacket plus trousers (Green)
Thermal hat (black), Face mask (camo), Mittens with fold backs for fingers (camo).
Belt ,Bolt holder , Knife (buck alpha) Bullet wallet (4 rounds) Binos (new Minox 10*40 review pending)
Grub boots (Stalker) Steyr .270win rifle mountain length with wildcat mod and s&b scope (8*56)
One stool (stand has no seat) 8 rounds of 130 grn 4 in mag 4 in wallet. Mobile phone, plastic gloves, something to eat and hip flask for the send off.
Shooting sticks in case I need to move or follow up.
Well that is the lot I begin to see why stalking feels like hard work sometimes, however tomorrow my main problem will be the cold. Mind you it is warming up should be about 0c tomorrow morning.
