AAR – Tarata Medium Range Shooting Competition

I haven't traditionally done an AAR (after action report) for shoots - but have decided (or realised) that it's a great way of reflecting on how I shot, what I did well, what I could do better.

The general public and firearms awareness.

The general public know a lot less about firearms in NZ than you might think. This is both a good and bad thing.

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.
