First up in this edition, we present two very different kinds of hunting in the Northern Territory. Our senior correspondent John Dunn travels to the Jawoyn Aboriginal lands to manage buffalo populations that are damaging both the environment and some significant art sites, while newcomer Christopher Wilson takes us to the swampy terrain of the Territory’s flood plains for big boars for the table. From here, we check out goat and pheasant hunting in Australia, tahr in New Zealand, deer in North America and plains game in Africa.
In our Edgeware section, Keith Spencer shows us the many options and equipment available for keeping blades sharp and Paul Barker teams up with New South Wales knifemaker Jeff Peck to create a beautiful Damascus steel skinning knife.
We have reviews on the Lanber 2187 Imperial Hunter over-and-under shotgun, hunting riflescopes, compact optical equipment and multi-terrain vehicles, as well as recipes for cooking quail and making crumbed venison schnitzels with Italian-style tomato sauce.
Enjoy Australian Hunter 34 and until next time, good hunting!
