Edition 51 - Australian Hunter

The intricacies of setting out of the trail of goats are outlined by Don Caswell, who says they are a challenging but rewarding target animal. Bob Salisbury details his passion for pheasant shoots with friends in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, while Mark Benns swaps his Western Australia domicile for a trek to New Zealand, which sees him bag some rabbits and goats in between finding time for a fishing outing to reel in succulent Kiwi snapper. Hunting etiquette is analysed by John Hodson, who stresses the importance of basic standards within The Country Code that can ensure a safe and enjoyable trip into the rural expanses. Up for review are the Sako A7 Roughtech Pro .270 rifle, the Silma M90 Ergal Hunter 12-gauge shotgun and Norma hunting ammunition.
