Issue 28 - Apr May 2012

I’m just back from Fiordland as I write this, but you’ll have to wait for next issue to see what Willie shot down there!  

The Reds are going well and the Sika should be firing up about now as well. We’ve got Fallow end of the month, see Jamie’s story this issue, then of course its duck opening early May! Then we’ve the Whitetail, tahr and chamois rut to come as the weather gets cooler. So much to hunt, so little time! 

This issue:

  • Jamie’s big Fallow from the Greenstone
  • The 6 Months Bush boys hunt roaring Sika
  • Mount Cook bull tahr
  • Landscape photography with Matt
  • HuntSoc Arthur’s Pass chamois hunt
  • I test the latest fast boil cookers – head to head!
  • Calibres and loads for under 16’s
  • Sarah christens her Tikka
  • Alaska Black bear hunt
  • Roy answers some frequently asked Wapiti questions
  • Tyron arrows his first chamois
  • Greig talks “Trophies”
  • Mike tells a Red hunting 2 for 1 yarn
  • Paul tells us all the extra things that put more ducks in his bag
  • Back water Mallards
  • The Back Ridge Butcher bones a goose!
  • Teresa continues her E Collar pointers
  • We do a roundup of steel shot for 2012 - what load through what choke for what purpose
  • Tony makes a venison salad


We evaluate...

  • Beretta’s new waterfowler - the A400 Xtreme 
  • Andrew Antelao boots
  • Leica’s revamped Trinovid binos
  • Tim Grounds Championship duck and goose calls

Last issues Spot the Logo winners were Lance Simons and James Lyver. The logos were in the East Kaweka ad on page 2, the Safari Co ad on page 81 and the Stoney Creek ad on page 35

We have also drawn our latest subscription prize winners, and they are Jim Pacey, Sam Medlicott, Joshua Wanhill and Ryan Nicholls.

Good luck for the rest of the roar, and hot barrels for opening weekend!
