My Stalking Kit

 

Being a keen stalker I thought that I would run you through my stalking bag for what I believe is essential kit for the serious stalker. Firstly you need a grab bag to put your essential kit in so that when you leave the house you have everything with you. I use the 25ltr Rucksack from Jack Pyke to keep my essentials together, it is constructed from strong, durable 600D Codura with quality zips to keep everything in! First items in the bag are my Howa cap, camo buff and gloves, got to keep those hands covered as we use these more than we know and deer can spot a waving hand a good deal away. I like to use the ruff to cover my face when looking around a corner or approaching a potential deer hot spot, even with a beard they can still spot a light face and bald head! Next on the list is my Hawke Vantage 8x42 binoculars in a Bushwear harness. In order to spot deer before they spot you it is necessary to walk 10 - 15 yards then look, look again then look some more and NOT through your rifle scope as you never know who's around! I have a waist bag that I carry with my gralloching kit in, two knives, chest saw, latex gloves and sleeves, deer sack, wet wipes, plasters, gambrel and cable ties (to tie off throat and butt). I also carry a Bushnell 1000 laser range finder in case a longer shot is required, I know the drop of my bullet out to 300 yards (not that I'd ever shoot a deer at that distance) but it is good to see sometimes how far I need to crawl to get to it! I take a Flexi-Sled along just in case we shoot a larger species and need to drag it back to the truck, this keeps the carcass clean and is much easier than trying to drag the deer without. I carry a Seek Thermal Camera that attaches to my Smartphone in case I shoot a deer and it runs into cover, the Seek allows me to see the heat signature out to 150 yards if necessary though I've never had one run that far! I d also carry a Buttolo call for attracting the attention of deer, not just in the rutt but also at other times to get the does attention.

 

As for shooting I use either my CZ 550 American in .243 Winchester for woodland stalking or my Howa 1500 Alpine in 6.5 Creedmoor for moor / hill stalking coupled with Nikko Diamond Long Range 4-16x50 optics, perfect for low light yet enough scope for when I want to practice at the range which I do a fair amount. These are used in conjunction with my Stable Sticks Quad sticks (adjusted for me) which allow a safe clean shot out to 200 yards if necessary, though I prefer to stalk in closer.
