Tick remover

Ticks are mans best friends worst friend… and we found this rather cool clip featuring the tick twister pro and it looks like it works quiet well by not squeezing the body while removing that can be easily done with fingers and tweezers!

Shame about the seedy 80’s porno music…

DOIN’ THE FOXTROT

Foxtrot Hiking Boots from Hunters Element by Christie Pisani

BourkeOct2014 Billy2 (9)

Footwear are like tyres.  We know it should be high quality, after all it’s our only connection with the earth while we walk. But it’s just so tempting to skimp on the good mud terrains and whack on a pair of retreads to get by. Works in most cases, and I personally like the feel of a soft thin sole when stalking deer in the lush greens of South East Queensland, and wetsuit booties are often the boot of choice. But Continue reading DOIN’ THE FOXTROT

Zero In Plinking Target System

Plinking is one of the best ways to pass time and teach the younger (and older) generations to shoot and always adds an element of excitement hearing the ding when shooting at distance.

Zero In Target Systems have developed a very sturdy and well engineered plinking platform that inserts into an existing Zero In target base or on top of the target panel, the two targets are 150mm (6″) hi-vis Continue reading Zero In Plinking Target System

“DONNA’S IN WITH A SHOT”    by Christie Pisani

“These lamingtons are dewishess!” I proclaim to Sharna and Bec as I hastily scoff another of the coconut coated cakes. I am assisting Sharna Dyson and Bec Hawkins at the Bullet&Bits /Hunt Like a Girl booth at the Sydney SHOT show, selling women’s hunting apparel, and chatting to the steady stream of huntresses perusing the display of garments. Probably just as many men stop for a yarn as they spy the Mossy Oak lingerie adorning one wall of the booth; yakking about their recent hunting adventures while they cast a sneaky sideways glance at the lingerie, desperately trying to determine their wife’s bra cup size from the display items.

I realise I have over committed (to the lamington) when a young woman named Donna Partridge arrives at the booth to chat to me, and I am physically unable to greet her as I am pre-occupied with a mouthful of lamington and desiccated coconut pieces scattered down my front. Donna does not batt an eyelid, after all, she is a hunter, a wife, and, a Mum!

For Donna, the three go hand in hand. Despite what anti-hunting activists want the world to believe, hunting is a family-friendly sport. There is no better way to nurture our children’s love for the natural world and all its creatures than by encouraging them to immerse themselves in the outdoors. As Donna explains to me “I feel there is a great importance in teaching our next generation about respecting our natural environment and to be able to enjoy the beauty of our great outdoors. I thrive to do my best and look forward to teaching our little girl’s the skills on how to survive in the bush as we guide and watch them grow into a strong huntress like their own Mum”.

Donna was born and bred in Gloucester NSW. Growing up with a farming background, Donna was exposed to hunting from an early age. Donna’s husband Matt is very passionate about hunting and his drive encouraged her to get more involved. They started travelling and hunting together, spending their honeymoon in Africa on a week-long hunting safari. Together they have harvested a wide array of different species, and Donna recently took up bow hunting,

Last year I was fortunate enough to be the first Australian to progress to the grand final of the Extreme Huntress contest, where I travelled to Texas USA, competing in hunting and skills challenges, and forming strong and lasting friendships with my fellow competitors from USA, South Africa, British Colombia and Sweden. I learnt a great deal about hunting in other countries, and that Australia is certainly the ‘lucky country’ in terms of ease of access to hunting and having a healthy outdoor culture, especially in regional areas. The Extreme Huntress contest is dedicated to giving women all over the world a platform to promote hunting and the outdoors, encouraging other women to hunt and thus preserving the sport for the next generation.

The grand final is filmed and viewed worldwide. Although acting the Aussie larrikin, I mustn’t have played up too much, as this year they let Australia back for another shot, with Donna being selected as a finalists in the top 20. From here, Donna needs the support of all of Australia to get her in the top 6, for the opportunity to represent us on the global stage in the Grand Final hunt in the USA. You can help Donna by visiting http://www.extremehuntress.com/vote/ and casting your vote.

“I am a young woman that is passionate and driven to promote a lifestyle that is enjoyable for my young family. I believe I have what it takes as Extreme Huntress… a respect and drive to sustain our natural environment and recreational and conservation. I look forward to the challenge…”

Primos Truth Cam Blackout Trail Camera

Like most hunters these days quality game scouting time can be hard to come by and when you do get that free time to hunt you want to go to your block and secure that trophy game or fill the freezer and this also applies for primary producers trying to eliminate cunning stock threats that don’t have time to spend days on end tracking predators.

1

The Primos Truth Cam Supercharged Blackout Trail Camera is ideal for game and property surveillance with its early detect 45 degrees PIR sensor and 1 second trigger speed at a night range of 55ft (17m) that will pick up almost all motion eliminating the chance of missing that crucial photo, and with black light LED you can ensure that it won’t be detected whether it has four legs or two..

3

The Truth Cam Blackout unit case will house 8 “AA” batteries and the auxiliary battery case will hold an additional 16 AA batteries giving you a total of 24 AA batteries to give you maximum life in the field without maintenance. For our testing we were able to take over 1000 daytime photos and it reduced the battery level to 68% which we felt is far superior to other trail cameras test in the past.

The quality of the 7MP Primos camera images is rather impressive given the low light inside the plantation and successfully captured game with minimal blurring as found in other makes. The camera states its effective to 17m with the black led nightlight but we successfully captured a running boar at 29m on numerous occasions.

As shown above the camera is very covert and ideal for long term property surveillance with its 12 months+ lifespan and excellent moisture resistance you only need to check it if you have a problem, and during this review we successfully caught illegal deer hunters and trespassers. The Primos Truth cam is an efficient, cost effective remote guard for your assets.
