Spika Hunter Gaiters

I must admit to being a gaiters skeptic. The most exposure to gaiters I have had in the past is making fun of my Kiwis mates who get around in the shortest of footy shorts, with knee high gaiters. To which I ask “Why don’t you just wear trousers? Then you won’t need gaiters, and I don’t have to look at your legs!”

But after trying a pair myself, I became a convert. I tried the Spika hunting gaiters, planning to test their key selling points…. Water resistance, protection from Continue reading Spika Hunter Gaiters

Women’s Muck Pursuit Boot

All hunters alike know that on any hunting adventure your feet are the most important part of your hunting kit, so we have to ensure that we protect them to take us further and hunt longer!
Over the years I have worn many different types of hiking boots , all with there good/bad points and myself being a deer stalker , I’m in need of boots that are supportive, comfortable, warm and waterproof, for all different conditions especially the hills.
These muck boots are hands down the best boots I have hunted in!
The support they give the ankles in unbelievable, lightweight, quiet, and most of all no laces which makes them convenient to slip on and off as needed! They make great camp boots heading in and out of your living quarters!

Olight Valkyrie LED Weaponlight

Hunting game at night under a spotlight is exciting and fast paced action, but what if you want to travel on foot and still be able to keep a light in the same direction as your barrel?

One of the hardest tasks we found before discovering the innovative designs Olight had come up with was balancing holding a torch and trying to aim on game at the same time, we have all tried it and at some stage – failed, or got lucky!

Initially we investigated the Olight Javalot with magnetic base which is an awesome bit of kit however didn’t suit stainless steel barrels or some firearms with tactical aluminium or composite chassis due to short barrel length or or shrouding factors, but these particular firearm designs came with piccatinny (tactical) rails for accessory attachments.

And this is where the Olight Valkyrie comes into its element! Boasting an impressive 450lm LED light Continue reading Olight Valkyrie LED Weaponlight

ATV TEK Rifle and Bow Mounts

ATV’s and UTV’s are the most common transport for Aussie hunters and outdoor enthusiasts due to our harsh terrain and the reason for this is because of our vast open land which at times can be hard to cover on foot or by vehicle at a reasonable speed. As well all know with our quads you have limited storage space and manufacturers don’t cater for firearms or bow storage. So where do you securely store your firearms while on the move?

ATV TEK have a solid range of storage options to cater for this need, not only for the rifle but the unique design caters for compound and recurve bows as well, giving you a stable mounting system that wont damage your tools of the trade.


Installation is quick and pain free and requires basic hand tools to install, simply find an appropriate tube (20mm) on your bike to install the base plates to. (Polaris owners can drill and attach to the front plastic toolbox lid where rail is not available on some models) Continue reading ATV TEK Rifle and Bow Mounts

Zoe Lee Watkins

I have grown up in a household full of hunters ,the only girl and the youngest of 4. My father is a very talented taxidermist and has taught me everything I know about hunting, importantly deer species and everything that goes with it so i am well trained when it comes to caping out a trophy!!
I am a young single mum and a beauty therapist by trade, I’ve had my fair share of criticism over the years from people not approving of my love of hunting but it runs in my blood and is something I am very passionate about so I’m always encouraging other women to get out and give it a try!!
Although I have taken some incredible trophies, it’s not all about that, it’s encouraging people to get out there and source there food the way there ancestors would have many years ago , I have been lucky enough to do quite a bit of traveling Australia with my hunting and I’m very excited to share my successes with other like minded Aussie huntresses!!

Bushnell TRS-25 Red Dot Scope

Bushnell TRS-25 Trophy Series Red Dot Sight – 1×25

Traditionally whenever we have used our lever action rifles, notably the .30-30 Winchester, we have always found the open sights to be the fastest for target acquisition but as time goes on we like to have a little bit of comfort and “bling” to complement our toys…

So we started looking at the Bushnell TRS-25 red dot scope which is a 1x power with 25mm objective, small yet mighty with 11 brightness levels and a crisp clean image.  Bushnell claims that the TRS-25 has a 3000hr+ battery life (tested on Continue reading Bushnell TRS-25 Red Dot Scope
