After 4 days in the bush, I certainly loved my new Hunters Element Base Layer and have worn them on 2 hunts since.
Recently, Ridgeline introduced a new range of Blue Blaze Camouflage, following on from Stoney Creeks addition earlier in the year. More options for safety can only be a good thing for hunters, and hopefully colour choices will encourage more people to wear blaze clothing so that they can be quickly identified in the bush. We have had a death in New Zealand this year…
Winter hunting brings with it many new challenges. Staying warm or keeping body temperature level becomes paramount. Especially when bush stalking.
Stoney Creek really put together a great boot.
An incredibly light hunting boot that provides stealth and comfort right out of the box.
The Hunters Element Foxtrot Boot meets the requirements of a lightweight, comfortable boot that provides more protection than a shoe, but doesn’t slow you down like a traditional, heavy boot.
The heavy duty Cordura in Desolve Veil camouflage and the Hydrafuse waterproof lining combine to provide a strong and waterproof stalking boot.
The moulded toe cap and heel stabiliser will keep you on track and on your target.
“Hey mate if I take stock off my rifle to clean after a wet Urewera road trip can it ruin my zero sorry if dumb question cheers”
We all know the scenario, head out to the range or for a hunt, end up putting none (or minimal) rounds through a gun, then get home after a long day and get tempted to put the firearm straight back into the safe. Probably not the best of ideas. Gun cleaning needs to be part of your habitual routine.
Ever get the feeling that the older waterproof jackets were, well, just more waterproof?
As long as I have hunted, I have worn shorts… Until a trip a few years back in the Urewas when i ended up waist deep in stinging nettle.
Recently I decided to try out the SNDWAY range finder, available from OutdoorBargainsNZ.com, and see how this $199 (um, yeah, two hundred bucks!) unit stood up against my Leupold.
