Edition 49 - Australian Hunter

Paul Barker goes back to basics to bag a hefty haul of rabbits in a bunny bonanza, then promptly adjourns to the kitchen to share a finger-licking good recipe for fried rabbit. Elsewhere, there are tales of pursuing wild pigs in Queensland’s Channel Country, tracking fallow deer in the Snowy Mountains, chasing buffaloes in the Northern Territory, seeking sika on New Zealand’s North Island, and beaming in on bighorn sheep in western Montana. From a practical perspective, we off advice for choosing and using paracord, while Con Kapralos gets to grips with putting together a game-stalking backpack. Our reviewers test out the Savage M42 combination gun, Sellier & Bellot hunting ammunition, Fabarm Elos Black Diamond shotgun and the Zeiss Victory PRF rangefinder.
