Our esteemed editor Marcus O’Dean has been messing with YouTube during company hours again, which is good for us because he’s found a few more vids that have tickled his fancy, and he’s so much nicer when his fancy gets tickled…
Close combat with wild boar
Boars can be crafty critters. Just when you think you’ve figured out where they’re coming from, they surprise the bejesus out of you – just ask our Scandinavian friend here who had a brown-trouser moment recently. Luckily this guy didn’t panic and was able to avoid disaster but it was nearly a case of boar 1 – hunter 0.
NIOATV: Season 3, episode 1
The blokes from NIOA are back for their third season of NIOATV and in this episode Bushy and Ken road test Australia’s first three-barrelled shotgun – the Akkar 3. Also in the episode, Damo checks out the Leupold Kenai Spotting Scope and Mick has a wander around his new warehouse.
Outback Hunting Trip 2012-2013: Pigs and Goats
Here’s a beaut for those who enjoy goat and pig hunting with Ben Smith posting a very well-produced video of a hunting trip in Inverell and Dirranbandi. There’s also a bit of fishing as the Smith family take to the bush for a bit of feral pest control with some great skilled shots. It’s about 10 minutes long, but is well worth a look.
Long Range Shooting: 6.5 Creedmoor out to 1,500 yards
If you’re a fan of a long-range shoot, then you’ll love seeing this guy nail a target at 1500 yards using a 6.5 Creedmore built by RP Rifles fitted with a Leupold Mark 6 3-18×4.4 scope. The shots are taken in 15-20mph winds with his first nailing the bullseye. Then there’s a nice group of three shots at 1000 yards in this awesome display of distance shooting.
Chipmunk Pest Control [Air Rifle Hunting]
Chipmunks are like rabbits in the US and controlling them is what this fella does with an air rifle fitted with a Hawk Sidewinder TAC 30 6.5-20x scope and camera mount. There’s a bit of slo-mo action thrown in as the hunter takes to the task of ridding the property of its chipmunk problem. Naturally, the comments section is alive with those who, while they don’t agree with the subject matter, find it necessary to watch and criticise.
