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

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
Every hunt demands the use of a good set of binoculars, but how do you have them at the ready in a comfortable position?
Traditionally binoculars come with a standard 1″ to 2″ neck strap that allows the weight of the the bino’s to be spread evenly across the base of the neck, this is perfect for short term so you don’t accidentally drop your prized glass. But as time wears on the pressure of the strap can feel like wire rope cutting into your neck, not the desired feeling when hunting or enjoying the outdoors.
Butler Creek have developed the “Bino Caddy” to eliminate this issue, its unique design allows the neck strap to be completely removed and the Continue reading Butler Creek Delux Bino Caddy
The scout rifles have been a hit with many shooters in the past decade due to their compact design allowing them to be carried on quad bikes and into more rugged terrain without getting caught up on the vegetation. The scout concept was heavily influenced in the early to mid-1980’s by Jeff Cooper (US Marine, Instructor & Writer) describing his ideal of a general-purpose rifle, “…a short, light, handy, versatile, utility rifle”, which Cooper dubbed a “scout rifle”. This was a bolt-action carbine chambered in .30 caliber (7.62 mm), less than 1 meter in length, less than 3 kilograms in weight, with Iron sights, a forward mounted optical sight (long eye relief scope), and fitted with a practical sling (such as ching sling). Cooper defined his goal: “… a general-purpose rifle is a conveniently portable, individually operated firearm, capable of striking a single decisive blow, on a live target of up to 200 kilos in weight, at any distance at which the operator can shoot with the precision necessary to place a shot in a vital area of the target”.
While the scout was inspired around a Continue reading Mossberg MVP Patrol .223
