The August issue of Sporting Shooter is out now and it’s another cracking read. The cover is graced by a photo of an awesome black billy goat, while the lead story by new writer Blake Hjorth tells of its demise. Other feature stories include a piece by Ted Mitchell about a fallow and fox trip he made to NSW, a fox hunting article by old hand Leon Wright, a deer outfitter profile by Justin Wann, and a ‘how to’ article about caping trophy stags by Nick Harvey. Speaking of Uncle Nick, he’s also supplied a great review of Sako’s A7 Roughtec Pro in 270 Win.
The feature of this issue, though, is a 16-page pig hunting special, all about hunting feral pigs. There’s articles about dogging pigs, shooting pigs, choosing a pig gun, bowhunting pigs, where to shoot ‘em and how to get their tusks out. This bonus pull-out is sure to be popular with all you pig hunters out there.
You’ll get all this in addition to our usual departments, product reviews, columns, tips, technical advice and photo comps. Head in to you newsagent or gunshop to pick up your copy or, better still, subscribe HERE.
