Issue 26 April 2022 - The Australian Junior Shooter

Young Rachel Redlich decided to mark the end of her high school years on a ‘schoolies’ trip with a difference when she and dad Chris embarked on a hunting adventure on a property near Inglewood in Queensland. What followed was certainly not what the pair had expected and in an entertaining account of a highly eventful few days, read how they coped with some very tricky situations in testing terrain. Youngsters are the very future of shooting and encouraging them into our ranks is paramount for the healthy advancement of our chosen sport and in this edition, Bob Boland outlines the many ways young shooters can coax others their age to join our ranks. And sticking with the next generation of shooters, Mark van den Boogaart has been teaching his eldest son the fine art of stalking and hunting during a long weekend excursion near Toowoomba.
