Five key features
With many styles of hide available, here’s how to pick the best for you
Fancy shooting in sandy or snowy conditions rather than the usual woodland setting? Hunt out a hide that can be specced in a choice of camouflage patterns.
A decent dome hide may be the lap of luxury in the camouflaging world, but carrying several extra kilos of kit might be a factor when shooting in remote locations.
From camouflage scrim netting that’ll make your hide almost invisible to nature- themed camera covers, there’s no shortage of ways to make sure you’re not spotted by your subjects.
Even the fanciest hide won’t instantly inspire animals to strike the perfect pose, so pack plenty of provisions to keep you going. Don’t forget to mute the mobile, too!
Conceal your kit
Camouflage clothing is certainly convenient, however it’ll only conceal your body. Break out your tripod, camera, and a giant lens and it’s unlikely that Bambi will be come running.
