Spring into action with the March 2020 issue of Sporting Rifle – your comprehensive guide to all the spring sport on offer to the rifle shooter. From foxing to stalking to stocking up on some new gear, we’ve got it all covered.
The patron saint of foxing, Robert Bucknell, adorns our cover, and inside the mag he gives his advice to new foxers – how you can discover foxing opportunities, what kit you need, and how things have changed since he first started out.
We’ve also got two articles from Mike Powell – looking back and forward, covering how winter foxing has gone and what you need to do to prepare for spring. And we’ve got a four-page foxing gear round-up, with lamps, NV, thermal, callers and more besides.
Elsewhere, time is running out to get the doe cull done – if you’ve left it late, we give you our top tips on how to finish it off without disturbing the deer. Elsewhere, Will O’Meara is stalking giant hybrid stags in Ireland and two of our writers embark on a quest to stalk the unfamiliar (to them) Chinese water deer.
Plus, don’t miss our reviews of the Browning X Bolt Pro Hunter with Cerakoted metal, the Leica Fortis 6 scope, and our group of experts’ six top tips on kit selection.
We’ve also got news, competitions, conservation views, and the latest readers offers. Don’t miss it.
