NZG&H #165 is on sale now!
NZG&H #165 goes on sale today with a good variety of articles to keep you occupied leading up to the roar!
On that note, make sure to check out Brad Ramsay's excellent article on hunting sika with his Grandad during last years roar!
Also in this issue Craig Maylam continues his Reloading 101 series and in this article looks at case trimming, Frazer Winskill tests out a couple of leading edge optics from Sig Sauer, and Phil Day provides useful insights when it comes to researching and purchasing your fly camping equipment.
There are also a couple of great features discussing cartridges such as rising star, the 6.5 Creedmore and the varmint king, the .220 Swift!
The roar is almost upon us and if you’re anything like me you begin the countdown to the next one as soon as the last one winds up.
On the hunter’s calendar, the rut or roar is easily the most exciting and anticipated time of the year. Plans are hatched, ballots are entered, leave is booked (from both work and home!), and maps and Google Earth are poured over.
It is a time to check over our rifles, packs and gear and make sure everything is ready to roll. It is also a time to take stock of our own safety measures, both with getting around on the hill and our firearm handling. Your life and those of the others around you should be your highest priority and at no point should you jeopardise this for the sake of an animal.
On this note, make sure you check out the Mountain Safety Council’s Roar 2018 update on page 10 of this issue which addresses some important themes surrounding the roar.
