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).

If you believe that a flashlight is a flashlight, you could not be more wrong. Modern LED lighting tools share only a few similarities with the old stamp-metal flashlights.

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.
