Con Kapralos tests Sako’s 85 Long Range rifle, Paul Miller looks at Walther’s LGU Master air rifle and Steve Hurt runs the rule over Swarovski’s new X5 long-range scopes. Chris Redlich heads to northern Victoria on the trail of sambar, while Chris Jackman is quite happy sniping rabbits with his three sons. Peter Bindon highlights how nibbles can be part of a ‘stay-alive’ kit in the bush. Don Caswell delves into artwork inspired by hunting, and Mostyn Hudson takes the spotlight for Youth in Focus.
