WILD DEER AND HUNTING MAGAZINE

Wild Deer and Hunting adventures magazine had its origins back in 2004-2005 when its creator Daniel Burke decided to try and enter the recreational hunting magazine market with a magazine aimed specifically at deer hunters-photographers. Essentially he was trying to get as many people to share their adventures either by photos or with stories and it has gone from strength to strength in the ensuing years. In recent times, the amount of women getting involved has increased dramatically as well as having a very healthy input from overseas readers.

Hunting, and deer hunting in particular, has had a massive spike in participating members in recent years and you only have to look at the photos gracing the pages of Wild Deer Magazine to see that the vast majority are a younger generation of men and women. Through the magazine, they are essentially sharing their photo albums with the world.

NORTHERN BROADHEADS

The ‘GRUNT’ series was created with three primary objectives to fill, they had to be: sharp, straight, and strong to prove their reliability, and they have achieved just that. as their name suggests, the ‘GRUNT’ was originally designed for and tested on large wild boar of Northern Australia. since then, they have proven to be a popular choice for deer hunters and larger game hunters alike.

A one piece stainless steel blade has a large 28mm cutting diameter with  shave out of the pack razor sharp cutting edges on all sides of the blade.  The solid aluminum ferrule reduces weight while maintaining its strength complimenting the heavy blade. The two components are then fastened together with a stainless steel Alan key style screw making it easy to replace a blade or ferrule while in the field.The 125 grain GRUNT has a vented blade to reduce weight yet maintain its strength. The venting has been cut into the blade in the optimum location to reduce noise and drag creating a seriously devastating light weight broad head.

The 150 grain GRUNT shares the same blade and ferrule profile as the 125 grain without the venting making it the silent killer. since it’s inception, the 150 grain GRUNT has been a very popular choice for the Traditional style bow hunter as well as the compound bow.

HUNT CATCH COOK – JASON SPENCER

Focusing on Game, Fish, Seafood and the various ways to harvest and use them. A page dedicated to my love of Hunting and Cooking. To highlight the fact that reward will always outweigh the effort. Wild food from Australia and around the world tastes that much better when you have made the effort to harvest it yourself… ” Give a man a fish and you give him a meal…. Teach a man to fish and you will feed him for life.”

I have always had an interest in harvesting my own food… My family has for hundreds of years……the fact is we have just forgotten how to…..

MAIN DIVIDE OUTFITTERS – NEW ZEALAND

Main Divide Outfitters, for the average Australian, American, Canadian, European and New Zealand hunters, because even I as an avid hunter wanting to hunt and travel find it costs a fortune to go for a hunt anywhere with trophy fees and unexpected or unexplained costs. Having personally guided in the United States for elk and mule deer, and being brought up in New Zealand with my father being a professional helicopter shooter and avid hunter has given me such a passion and understanding of hunting and wildlife in New Zealand and the Southern Alps that I wish to share it with many like- minded hunters. After working for the Department of Conservation controlling pests and animals in different areas around NZ, then guiding for outfitters in New Zealand and in the States, I decided it was time for an affordable, free range option for sporting hunters who love the outdoors and enjoy the love of the hunt.

THE FRIENDLY RABBIT TRAP COMPANY

The trap design is extremely simple, consisting of two plastic ends, one not unlike a flower pot, the other just a cap. Both ends have doors, one is lockable, the other swings freely from two hinges and relies on gravity for closure.

The centre portion of the trap consists of a rolled piece of wire netting, held firmly in place by plastic straps that press together. The ends are then attached using nylon one-way fasteners. All in all a set of five traps which come unassembled in a carton can be put together in about 10-15 minutes. Once assembled they are left in this state for future use and transport.

SKOPECAM

Skopecam is an iPhone mount for you rifle scope that allows you to capture those amazing hunting moments for you to relive and share!

I’d been a good boy all year, and Santa had rewarded my virtue with a shiny new iPhone 4. None of my old brick phones could record video like this thing could: 720p, 30fps, 48 kHz stereo audio. Glorious.

So when my cousin Tim and I went out to snipe some bunnies in the back paddock with our trusty .22s (a Christmas tradition), we tried recording a few kills through the scope. The footage was awful—impossible to focus, impossible to keep still.

Using the materials at hand (scraps of cardboard from the Christmas bon-bons box and some paddle-pop sticks), we forged a makeshift contraption to hold my iPhone firmly in place while we shot. The thing was ugly. It fell apart in twenty minutes. I got a splinter. But it worked—we played the footage of Tim nailing a hare from 200 metres until New Years Eve.

Skopecam was born.
