Genade dood

deur Ge Jooste

Ek probeer elke jaar ’n elandbul en -koei skiet vir tafelvleis vir my familie vir die volgende jaar of so. My jag vir die twee bokke het hierdie jaar weer by ’n vriend se plaas op Speculatie, Limpopo plaasgevind. Die bokke word glad nie van ’n voertuig af geskiet nie, maar liewers te voet.

Barrel Death Sentence: Pre-Hunting Season Rifle Checks

by Eduan Prince

Hunting season is upon us all, with the thought of sighting the great African Ghost looming at the back of our minds. However, before we can lust after the adrenaline rush, the smell of the African Sahara burning our throats, and the ominous African sun beating down on the back of our necks, we need to ensure our hardware, our tools of the trade, are set up and ready to echo the sound of eternal glory (and bragging rights).

Variables of Long-Range Hunting 

by Knut-Eric Rognes from Norway

When I started my career as a hunter 20 years ago, I bought a Tikka M595 and a small Shirestone scope, 3-9x40 and 100 rounds of ammo, and shot three red deer in a season. Nothing fancy about it, maximum 100 m, and a shot in the middle of the shoulder. This is how it is done nowadays as well, as hunting has had a slow development (apart from better optics, that is).

a Hunt from a PH's point of view by Thinus Steyn

Dawn was still two hours away as he started the diesel Landcruiser and left it idling throatily while he went back inside and set a kettle on the gas stove.

Voetfout  deur Christophe Roelofse

Die jagseisoen het reeds ‘n wye draai geloop, maar trek noustrop, ten laaste is daar nog die belofte van ‘n netjiese ou blouwildebeesbul in die wind. Ek het hom vroeër die seisoen reeds twee maal uitgedaag, maar die bloubul is uitgeslape en kies sy slagveld wys. Dis ‘n pragdier, hy lyk soos ‘n Bison wat kop en skouers uitstaan bo die res met ‘n kenmerkende ritmiese drafstap.

deur Manie Viljoen

Pa, ek wil ‘n blesbok skiet.” Lank voor die Junie-skoolvakansie het Jeandre hierdie vraag onophoudelik gevra. Pa: “Ja, ons sal sien.”
