Issue 10 – November 2012 - The Australian Junior Shooter

Olympian Will Godward talks about his success on the international shooting stage and remembers how it all began – learning his skills on the range as part of the SSAA Moonta Branch, where his enjoyment of the sport was nurtured. Denis Roe describes how his son Brendan took his first warthog and bushbuck ram back in their native South Africa. Continuing the hunting theme, youngster Samuel Cadorin recalls how an early-morning outing ended with him bagging his first billy goat under the supervision of his dad. And Professor Peter Terry from the University of Southern Queensland draws on his expertise to tackle some of the psychological challenges of the sport, discussing how mental toughness is an integral part of becoming a good shooter.
