The Ridgeline Hunting Photo Competition for May-June is open! Send in one of your favourite hunting photos and you could win a Ridgeline Trail Cam valued at $199.95, one of the handiest hunting tools you can get; see details further down in this post, along with information about how to enter. Gotta be in it to win it!
WINNER! CHEEKY FOX!
“A sheep grazier had foxes chasing lambs so we took the thermal and whistle out for a walk,” Graham Pine reports. “Spotted a fox in the grass hiding from the icy wind gusts but he couldn’t resist the Tenterfield whistle. He ran straight for us with the intention of a quick meal but was met with the Ruger Precision. A nice before photo from the property owner and after photo from me.”
Graham has won himself a Ridgeline trail cam for these two great photos. He’ll be able to put it to good use against more of those foxes!
A SOW JUST NOW
“My mate, Jack, took this sow just now,” Gary Theiss says. “He doesn’t like being in photos.” He doesn’t look too unhappy about getting that porker, though! Gary tells us it ended up as meat for the dogs.
A CRACKING FREE-RANGE 17 POINTER!
Mate, check out this absolute beauty, a genuine free-ranging red stag from the Central West of NSW. “The 2023 rut/roar was a lifetime dream for me this year,” says Paul Elder. “Hunting my usual private property access, I heard the reds and fallow at full tilt, roaring and croaking! One particular morning I heard a red stag going off, roaring hard for two hours straight. By the time I finally got into that area I could hear him but couldn’t lay eyes on him, so I decided to give him a few hind calls and sure enough he was suddenly 10 metres from me. The Tikka .308 made short work of him and to say I was speechless was an understatement. I couldn’t believe how big this mature stag was and carrying beautiful 9×8 headgear! Still can’t believe I finally shot a big free-range 17 pointer.”
This is Patrick Leigh with his first sambar, taken with his Sako .308 using a 180gn Core-Lokt bullet. “It went in straight behind the shoulder and formed a perfect mushroom,” Patrick says. Perfect!
“Walked out the cabin door to see I had visitors,” Gary Theiss says. Self-delivering dinner, perhaps?
DAD, GET THE GUN!
“Not long after arriving at camp, the boys were off exploring and came across this fella foraging on the side of the hill,” says Nathan Pringle. “They quickly came back to camp all excited, saying, ‘Quick get the gun, there’s a big pig on the hill’. Unsure of what to expect, we grab a rifle and headed for a look. Sure enough, the boys were right. He was quickly despatched using 140g slug in the 6.5 Creedmoor. A great start to the weekend.”
