Making Better Stovetop Espresso

Life isn't all about guns, there is coffee as well. I recently learnt a couple of things I would like to share with you. You might like to try them out as well.

Chilli & Lime Jerky (or Biltong?)

Jerky? Biltong? Yummy either way.

Smoked Roast Chicken on a Weber Smokey Joe BBQ

The Grill Grilling up a good feed on a bbq is one of the most satisfying things in life.  It tastes that much better when...

A couple of reviews for our LRS-L1 Shooting Course

A couple of reviews have come in for our recent Long Range Shooting - Level 1 Fundamentals Course. Through conversations both online and at the range,...

T-Bone Steaks

I have fallen for T-Bones recently. What isn't to like about them? They are great value for money, full of taste, and have a bonus feature - the Missus will generally not be able to finish all of hers so I get to eat one and a half T-bone steaks.

E Cat Safe Requirements

NOTE: A bit of this has 'changed' since I originally wrote this. Will update soon.

Hunter Fitness – training for the right sport.

Before people start hitting me with comments like 'hunting is the best training for hunting' and 'just get out and walk the hills' - let us have a bit of perspective.

Computer Eye Strain Relief – Oakley Prescription Glasses

I have been wearing glasses since my school years. As a child, I was identified very early on as having a 'lazy eye' -...

For father’s day, I got my little girl some socks.

I am possibly the only person in Auckland that would take a PLB on a one hour walk in the Waitakeres. I don't consider myself risk adverse - I just like to assess and mitigate certain issues, before they ever occur.

SIKA SHOW 2016 – From the perspective of an overseas visitor

Sika Show is fast becoming one of the “pilgrimage shows” that I have to attend annually in New Zealand. My wife and I will...

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.

Backcountry Hut Etiquette for Hunters and Trampers

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.

Rolife Ferris Wheel – a DIY Music Box

One thing about the lockdown with kids - you get to play with toys more! With two little ones in the house, we have been looking for options to keep them engaged and busy. When my partner turned up with a couple of these I was intrigued.

The Svord Santoku

The Santoku style knife has become rather popular in the last few years - it's almost safe to say it is the hipster hunter knife of choice. 😉 So, what is the Santoku knife, what benefit (if any) does it provide, and why should you consider picking up one of the phenomenal Svord made ones?

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!
