WINNER: Anticipation

Duck hunting area

Michael Ketelaar took this shot shortly after dawn on a late-season duck hunt in Western Victoria, with some great reflections of an overcast sky. The moment is “all about anticipation,” says Michael. “With reduced bag limits on the ducks (4) the morning shoots are fun but quick 😊”

Doing pretty good!

“My wife, Pranom, and I have been supporters of the Ridgeline photo comp for a long time, but it has been a while since we submitted an entry,” says Anton Van Bysterveld. “I have been a subscriber to Sporting Shooter magazine for almost 50 years and even today at my age there is nothing better then getting out in the bush with my wife to try our luck. As you can see in the photo, we do pretty good most of the time and fill the freezer with some good organic tucker.”

Maegan bags two billies

Maegan Sherritt took a trip from Victoria into central NSW and decked these two billies within a couple of metres of each other.

The name of the game

Ben Fergusontells us, “This photo is one of my favourites from the best night of spotlighting in my life as I took my son Hunter out and had him shooting at game for the first time. He was able to bag his first rabbit before we whistled in two foxes and was able to shoot one. He ended up shooting two foxes and 13 rabbits for the night using my CZ 22 magnum. The months of target practice paid off. It’s fair to say he is hooked now.” Good stuff!

Tim’s bunny

“We were out spotlighting on a mate’s farm North of Perth when my 11 year old son, Tom, got his first bunny,” says proud dad Tim Britten. “He’s a great kid and this night he was stoked to get out with me and his brother. The .22 and the Australian boy: what a wonderful thing for a father to be able to do with his son. I just hope his kids get the same opportunity.”


Ridgeline Tru-Shot 25 Litre Backpack – 25 litres of convenience especially designed with the day trip in mind. Features include comfortable shoulder and waist straps with ammo loops in the belt pockets, hydro clips for a bladder (sold separately) plus a lightweight moulded foam rest to get that perfect steady shot from a long distance. All supported on a super ventilated frame and with the added safety benefit of a removable blaze-orange rain cover so you can find your pack, keep it dry and make sure you’re visible on your trek out of the bush.

Ridgeline 11.5cm Linerlock Folder knife – a utilitarian, rugged folding knife, whose drop-point, false-top edge design will skin and butcher the largest animal. The thumbhole oval cut-out allows easy one-handed blade deployment and the alloy black scales and titanium-grey finished blade allow easy cleanup and corrosion resistance. A pocket clip on the back scale is a thoughtful addition.
