February 2022 - Australian Shooter

Our February cover story turns the spotlight on the first bolt-action rifle out of Turkey – the Turqua Walnut by ATA Arms – which our reviewer reckons will make an excellent stalking rifle and, priced around the $1000 mark, will be within the reach of many Australian hunters. Other items under review this month include thermal imagers, red dot optics and the latest Aguila ammunition from Mexico. Elsewhere, Sam Garro examines the psychology of field-dressing your harvested game, David Hughes tackles the sometimes divisive subject of hunting rites and animal rights, while Brad Allen and Peter Schade share their experiences in our continuing series of ‘My Most Challenging Hunt’. And of course we have all our regular columns and expert analysis.
