It is recommended to use classic hunting clothes. The clothes must me as silent as possible and with neutral colours or camo (recommended). As the weather can be changing quickly, it is necessary to bring a warm and waterproof jacket, a polar vest, a hat or a cap and gloves.

It is very important to have good waterproof hiking boots with a good grip for the mountain hunts. The boots must imperatively have been worn prior to the hunt to prevent blisters.

Binoculars (from x7 to x12 zoom).
A small backpack, knife, camera, torch, water bottle and all the equipment you generally use when hunting.
