Issue 12 – October 2013 - The Australian Junior Shooter

Benchrest wonder kid Stuart Foate explains his enthusiasm for the discipline and how he became involved in the specialised category. He follows this up with a basic beginner’s guide for aspiring SSAA junior shooters who may wish to try to emulate his deeds. Brad Allen, a hunter with more than 40 years experience, passes on some of his knowledge to the junior ranks. Brad should know how things work, as he has introduced his four children to the art of tracking game in the wild. Sam Spanton describes how he and his dad, as well as his sister Lilli, enjoyed making hunting inroads into a mob of goats who occupied a ridge. And Cameron Smith discusses the issue of allowing shooters to hunt pest animals in national parks.
