Winter is coming, and some may be dreading it – but not us sporting rifle shooters, who enjoy some of our best and most varied sport at this time of year. And we’re here to help you survive and thrive this winter with the December 2018 issue of Sporting Rifle.
We’ve got snowbound hunting stories from around the world, including New Zealand mountain tahr, Bulgarian golden jackal, Scottish wilderness red hind and waiting out for a fox in Sussex. Plus, Will O’Meara ascends the Wicklow Mountains in search of sika, as well as delivering his verdict on the new kit he’s been testing this year.
We’ve got the Barrett Fieldcraft rifle on test, as well as an optics double-up, giving the verdict on the new Sig Sauer BDX scopes and the Vortex Viper HS. And Mike Powell sums up the offerings on the NV and TI markets and dispenses some essential advice for those looking at picking up a new unit.
Plus we reveal the latest bids in our Save The Rhino auction and reflect on the controversies surrounding posting hunting photos online.
