Gear up for the start of the roe season, with all of the essential kit you’ll need to bag a buck.
Blaser Carbon Shooting Stick 2.0
The Carbon Shooting Stick features a patented pistol grip that allows you to keep your rifle safely on target. The holding U-shaped rifle rest positioned on top of the pistol grip is now reliably secured with a new safety slide—unless the forearm of the rifle is fixed directly with the holding pin on the shooting stick.
The revised elastomer screws for the adjustment of the length allow for a stronger tightening and therefore an even greater stability in every hunting situation. A hard rubber pin (previously aluminium) secures the position of each foot and reduces noise to an absolute minimum.
Blaser R8 Ultimate Knife
After a successful hunt the new Blaser Ultimate Knife offers two possible uses: in addition to the knife blade, it has a gutting blade. Both are made of stainless Sandvik steel (12C27) and can rotate, so that each blade can be reliably connected to the Proflex handle.
Both the handle and the sheath are orange-coloured, so that they are easily located when, for example, hunting or gutting in difficult terrain. Like the R8 Ultimate, the Ultimate knife is designed for tough use.
Gateway1 1900 Prym1 Woodlands Boot
The new design of the Prym1 Woodlands print wellies has been developed as a concealment solution for the active hunter in wooded terrain. The pattern is produced using a hybrid camouflage in varying shapes, rather than sticks and leaves, to help achieve a natural concealment within the flora and fauna.
The design also offers hunters the flexibility of subtle movement across their terrain—allowing the Gun to cut the distance on their quarry, providing a closer, more successful shot. Available from mid-April.
EL Range TA
The EL Range TA delivers razor- sharp images with precise distance and angle measurement, with a range of 10 to 2,000 metres (10.9 to 2,187 yards). The intelligent binoculars can be individually configured using a smartphone app and customised with the hunter’s own ballistics data.
The Tracking Assistant is a revolutionary new feature that helps hunters to locate the target area, particularly in difficult terrain. The program works via the EL Range Configurator app on the EL Range TA or on a smartphone.
RRP from £2,810

Hornady American Whitetail
Loaded with Hornady’s InterLock bullets in weights that have been deer-hunting favourites for decades, the American Whitetail ammunition range features exposed lead tips for controlled expansion and hard-hitting terminal performance.
The range also includes the pioneering secant ogive design and exclusive InterLock ring—the raised ring inside the jacket embedded in the bullet’s core keeps the core and jacket locked together during expansion to retain mass and energy.
RRP from £29 per box of 20
Ridgeline Ascent Soft Shell Jacket in DIRT Camo
The Ridgeline Ascent Jacket features a quiet, water-resistant, soft-shell fabric with a 5,000 H20 membrane. The hood is large and roomy with three points of adjustment. Zipped pockets allow you to store items safety, whilst the arm pocket has elasticated bullet loops for five cartridges.
The soft- shell is grid back and this regulates the temperature inside the garment keeping you comfortable. The Ascent has been developed as a windproof outer garment that is fitted to assist movement in the field, allowing you to get into position with stealth and access essential items easily.
Ridgeline Kahu Bino Case
Quick and easy access to your binos is essential when on the hills, and keeping them protected against slips and falls when crossing uneven terrain is equally important.
The Kahu Bino case delivers this protection and more, with a zipped cover to keep debris out, two side pouches, grad handles and an engineered harness to ensure comfort and stability while moving over uneven ground.
