Small game hunting

Small game includes everything from foxes and roe deer to hares and birds. The hunt is often performed with dogs and the main periods are autumn and winter. This places high demands on your outfit, which has to make hunting with dogs easy but also has to protect against the changing weather.

Hunting small game can be a challenge, and especially foxes are known for being agile, having good hearing and being good at deceiving the hunter. Therefore it is important to keep in mind that the chosen garments should be quiet and suitable for active hunting.

Focus on moisture transmission

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!

Small game hunting sometimes involves active hunting. So the essential elements are the camouflage, the fit and the right kind of features of the garments. When hunting actively, good ventilation possibilities are necessary to quickly vent out warm and humid air. Even if you dress right, placing layer over layer so that you can regulate the temperature by taking off clothes, you will still sweat during particularly active moments of the hunt. So it is optimal to have functional undergarments that take away moisture from the skin. It is essential that the garments fit well so that you can easily make your way across varied terrain, and that the garments sit tight against your body so that they do not get stuck in bushes and thickets. Another important aspect to take into consideration is that the garments should not make sounds. Quiet garments make it possible to get closer to the prey. The use of garments with a membrane that allows breathability is a prerequisite to keep warm even when it's rainy and windy.

Our recommendation

Our range includes several products that are suitable for small game hunting. Which ones work best greatly depends on the weather. Here is a selection of products that are suitable for small game hunters.

For small game hunting we recommend the ScentLok® series, which is both smooth and quiet but also minimizes your human scent when used properly.

The Melvin series items have a Gore-Tex® membrane, that makes the garments windproof and waterproof. The garments are also quiet, lightweight and easy to move in. Furthermore, they are available in several different colours, in everything from green to camouflage to signal colours for good visibility.

The Ultra Light clothes have a Covertex® membrane that works as a Barrier for wind and water. The garments have a four-way stretch, which makes them extremely comfortable and mobile. The Ultra Light series is available in green.

Our new Hamra series is also suitable for small game hunting, especially during the drier and warmer season. The garments are quiet, have a good fit with stretch panels in strategic places and also have membranes in certain areas to protect against the moisture that comes from vegetation. Hamra items are available in three colour combinations.

For small game hunting in the winter, we suggest our Kebne series that has a well-conceived design. The garments have a Covertex® membrane that protects against rain and cold winds.
