Memories of a hunting trip to Scotland: the Red Deer hunting

On the walls of the moors and on the plateaus of lush heather, among whose tufts white hares burst out and grouse branches fly away, the hunter moves, guided by his stalker, as they approach the stag roaring while dozens of females graze nearby with the born of the year and some spikers.

The Scottish dawn, between two drops of the inevitable drizzle and two flashes of sun, sees the hunter climbing with the agile “eight-wheeled Argo” up the gentle slopes and then continue on foot and conquer the well-deserved “royal stag” with the use of a 270 or a good 7 mm up to the universal 300 with bullets ranging from 130 to 180 gr depending on the caliber chosen.

A good optic completes the equipment, without forgetting a quality binocular to peer into the wide valleys. Covered in technical clothing in green or soft camouflage, it is always good to bring a raincoat … We never know.

Tips and tricks

Here are some tips for dressing right during a red deer hunting trip in Scotland:

Wear camouflage or earth-toned clothing that blends in with the surrounding environment. This will help you to stay hidden from the deer and avoid being spotted.
Choose clothing that is made from breathable, moisture-wicking materials. This will help you to stay cool and dry during the day, even when you are moving around a lot.

Wear layered clothing so that you can adjust to the changing weather conditions. Scotland can be very changeable, so it is important to be prepared for both hot and cold weather.

Wear sturdy boots that provide good ankle support and traction. You will be doing a lot of walking and climbing on uneven terrain, so you need shoes that will protect your feet and prevent you from slipping and falling.

Wear a hat and gloves to protect yourself from the sun, wind, and rain. The Scottish weather can be unpredictable, so it is important to be prepared for all types of conditions.

Wear a blaze orange vest or hat. This is essential for safety, as it will make you visible to other hunters and the gamekeeper.

Carry a whistle. This is a useful tool for signaling to other hunters or for scaring off deer.

Carry a rangefinder. This will allow you to accurately judge the distance to your target, which is important for making sure that you take a safe and ethical shot.

Carry a first aid kit. This is essential in case of an injury.

Check the weather forecast before you go hunting. This will help you to dress appropriately and plan for the conditions.

Eat a healthy breakfast before you go hunting. This will give you the energy you need to stay active throughout the day.

Drink plenty of fluids. Dehydration can be a serious problem, so it is important to stay hydrated, especially in hot weather.

Take breaks often. Hunting can be physically demanding, so it is important to take breaks to rest and refuel.

Be aware of your surroundings. This is especially important when you are stalking deer.

Be respectful of the environment. Leave no trace of your presence and dispose of your waste properly.

We hope these tips help you to dress right and have a successful red deer hunting trip in Scotland.
