Hillman jackets ARE designed for hunters/stalkers and shooters

I’m sure we have all owned hunting/shooting/stalking coats that looked good but lacked the important details, but the Hillman range of jackets have proved to be well thought out and made for the outdoors.
Put one of their jackets on and find out for yourself.
There are pockets in the right places and plenty of them. The main zip has a soft protective covering at the neck, so when the jacket is zipped up, this little detail makes a big difference to your comfort when you are out in the field. hillman_zip_detail

The range of Hillman of jackets can be bought online from Venator Pro, free delivery with orders over £100.

If you want to get ahead, get a (Hillman) hat

Linda Mellor out deer stalking with Kenneth Larsen, Venator’s MD

Everyone should have a good hat or cap they can use for shooting, fishing and deer stalking. A hat serves many purposes; good camouflage, can be used for warmth, keep the sun and rain off your face and out of your eyes and, in my case, it helps keeps my hair out of the way.

For years, I have worn a couple of different hats; each one has its function; I love my Akubra hat for everyday wear and shooting, it’s also good for fishing and walking but not on a windy day. Recently, I tried and loved the Hillman Reversible Hat. It comes in a range of sizes and patterns; my favourite is the Autumn hat because of the green (I love green) running through the camo pattern. The hat has a folding bill; this feature was invented and produced by Hillman. Thanks to the hat’s lack of bulk you can stuff it in your pocket when not in use, and pull it out when you need it without the need for rigorous reshaping. It also had reversible fluorescent orange. I wore mine when I was out on my first dawn roe buck stalk with Venator’s MD Kenneth Larsen (pictured).

The Hillman Reversible Hat suits men and women and my one is now a permanent fixture in my hat collection.

You can buy one here online at Venator.

Mental preparation for successful deer stalking

Planning and preparation are critical for being organised and ready. Mental preparation is an important part of being ready to participate; it gives you confidence and helps your performance across all aspects of work, life and sport yet it is rarely spoken about in relation to deer stalking.

 

If you are new to stalking an introduction day/course will give you an insight into a stalk, educate you in rifle safety, shot placement and stalking techniques. When you are out on a live stalk, you are searching the landscape for deer, looking for clues, being aware of the wind direction and listening out for sounds. You have no control over the environment; you are hunting the animal in its natural habitat and, as the visitor, equipping yourself to the best of your ability increases your chances of a successful stalk.

Whether you are new to the sport or an experienced stalker, mental preparation will help you approach the live stalk positively, and in a relaxed manner. Professional sportsmen and women, speakers, artists, actors and business people are all trained to visualise their performance and seeing the outcome they desire. You can apply this to deer stalking by visualising the stalk, see the surroundings, look at the details and find the deer you want to shoot. Take your time, picture yourself getting into position, slowing down your breathing and taking the perfect shot.
