Avoiding spoilt meat – some causes

There is a wide amount of reasons meat gets spoiled in the field - ranging from a little gamey tasting to a rank rotten mess. However, good handling and processing practices for animals goes a long way, gets the most out of the kill and pays the respect due for taking an animals life. Take your time, do it right, enjoy the results.

A chat with Chuck Rossi from Open Source Defence

I spoke to a few people about my upcoming interview, and the general response I got was ‘oh… who?’. Fair enough, I guess, this is a little bit of a tangential subject for me, as most people know me from talking specifically, and technically about long-range precision shooting.

PracMed Stop The Bleed Course

Hopefully, by now, I have gotten across the importance of first aid training to all of you. This is not just for shooters or hunters, or parents (I had to hook some food out of my 4 years olds choaking face last night) - but everyone - knowing what to do is 'basic dude stuff' as Patrick McNamara would say.

While the ultimate, of course, is having a remote bivy (small hut) to just yourself and your mates, for some of the more accessible and bigger huts, there is a very good chance you are going to be sharing a hut with other trampers and hunters. As ambassadors for tramping, hunting, and just being nice human beings, there are some basic principles we should all be applying A lot of this comes down to one simple principle - consideration for others. Consideration for others is the simplest and best guide for co-inhabiting a hut. It is not a bad starting point for humanity either. This article puts forward some simple considerations and pointers for the next time you find yourself in a shared hut.

In close, should I aim high or low?

I hear the comment quite regularly - 'I got in real close to the animal - but just couldn't seem to get the bullets to go where I was aiming - I was so close, I must have had to aim lower, right?' Well, no. If you aimed lower, there is a good chance you put a round under the animal - or worse still - into a leg. But why? Oh. Maths!

Halal Hunting

Through my involvement with the Firearms Safety Training for the NZ Police, I am always reminded of the wide diversity of Firearms Owners and Hunters in New Zealand. Of particular interest to me, has been the feasibility and details surrounding Halal Hunting - what is permissible - what is achievable for Muslims wanting to hunt their own meat in Aoteroa.
