The lead story in the November issue of Sporting Shooter is a captivating piece by Michael Pizzata about his excellent adventure in the Top End. Michael, his Dad, Tony, and cousin Mick take water buffalo and barramundi, and have some close encounters with crocodiles. I really must get up there one day!
In other hunting stories, Darren Marks bags a big brace of foxes in New South Wales – the opening photograph for this story is a cracker. Then we have a story by David Kendrick in which he runs out of ammo while shooting goats in South Australia. Shame! He still culls over 100 though. Then Misha Harding tells us about blooding her new Kimber 243 by decking a fallow deer. Finally there is a piece by Yours Truly about some pigs I managed to bag in between Dad duties on a recent trip to Queensland with my family.
In our product review section, shotgun fans will love Nick Harvey’s assessment of the new Akkar triple-barrelled shotgun. Nick also checks out the Sauer 202 Synchro Xt .308 Winchester with the synthetic thumbhole stock. Finally he takes a look at the Otis Elite Do-It-All cleaning kit.
To finish the mag, there is a great ‘how to’ article by Editor O’Dean, who runs us through the basics of how to shoot accurately in the prone position. It’s part 4 of his series on field shooting positions.
Don’t forget, too, that we also have all our usual departments full of information, photos, competitions, test reports, trivia and news to keep you up to date with what’s happening in the wonderful world of hunting and shooting.
The November issue of Sporting Shooter is out now in all good newsagents and gun shops.
