Big game hunting is one of the most common types of hunting in Sweden, and above all elk hunting is a highlight for many. Unlike many other types of hunting, elk hunting only happens during a short period of time, so it is important that at that time all equipment is ready so that nothing can go wrong.
Big game also includes, among others, bears, deer and wild boars, and the hunting period stretches over several seasons. It places demands on your clothes, which need to have high functionality and protect you from the wind and harsh weather.
We develop our garments in cooperation with actual hunters, who test the clothing in the environment where they are meant to be used. At Swedteam we make sure that every new product is tried and tested to ensure that it fits and works to its best before we place it on the market. While the emphasis is on the garment’s functionality, we do not compromise on quality and appearance. We make nice-looking clothes that also work well upon use!
Big game hunting involves both having to sit for a long time, and being out and moving in the terrain. This means that many of our clothes are suitable for big game hunting. When being still, it is especially important that the clothes are warm. Traditionally, bait hunting clothes are green. For a more active hunting, instead, movement and ventilation possibility are most important. It is also very important to have functioning camouflage, but at the same time visibility is a life saver. This issue has been solved by using well-known, well-functioning camouflage patterns where some of the details are in signal colours, in order to prevent accidents from occurring.
Our range includes several products that are suitable for big game hunting. Which ones work best greatly depends on the weather you hunt in. Here is a selection of products that are suitable for big game hunters.
For bait hunting we can recommend Titan Classic, a classic green hunting garment with a generous fit that is also durable and waterproof, being lined with Gore-Tex®.
In colder weather, the Arktis series garments work very well. The series consists of padded garments that are both green and camouflage, in some cases presented as a set of jacket and trousers, in others as overalls. The Arktis series is made in Covertex®, which makes it wind and waterproof.
For active big game hunting, all the dog handler products are suitable, and the Melvin item which exists in green and in several camouflage combinations. Melvin is a lighter item made in Gore-Tex® that is completely waterproof and has good ventilation possibilities.
In order to get close to wildlife, we recommend Bison series, a set entirely made in ScentLok®, which, if used properly, minimizes human scent.
