November-December 21 Ridgeline Hunting Photo Competition

Gary Hall is like “a train without a station”.That was a term which once described 80s Australian Rugby Captain, Mark Loane, a lock who fitted it aptly. Just think of the opposing inside backs being the pigs and Gary Hall being Loane. Here, for your pleasure is an amazing action-packed image which is one of a series, one of which may grace the cover of Sporting Shooter magazine soon.

This being the last E-Newsletter before the break, we at wish you and all our readers and contributors a happy, peaceful and enjoyable Christmas where you can reconnect with family and friends after a challenging and no doubt emotion-filled two years.

Gary Hall and dishlickers get amongst it.

Just a note! If you email in an image for this or any other comp with us, PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS or you will not qualify for a prize. We have to send it somewhere!!!

We have maintained the prize lineup courtesy of Ridgeline, with a new knife and the Ridgeline Tru-Shot Backpack and the good old Ridgeline Haul All Bumbag and Meatsafe, which I regularly use in the field. It has proven most satisfactory, durable and a great expedient field rest due to its design.

Ridgeline’s Tru-Shot 25 Litre Backpack.This pack is 25 litres of convenience especially designed with the day trip in mind. Features include comfortable shoulder & 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 & added safety benefit of a removable blaze 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 4.5-inch Linerlock Folder. A utilitarian, rugged folder, 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.
