      Hey Ado - good to "see you" here. Loads of dramas on the frontline. I wish I was just working late, that would be too easy!

    My best hunting tip:
    Allow some time at the beginning of your hunt to acclimatize to the light and the habitat; you want to understand the environment you are hunting as best you can.

    A quick shot up close should be right on the money as soon as you pull the butt of the rifle into your shoulder if you've prepared well the rifle should lift, point and shoot!
    My other interests:
    Bird and mammal taxidermy, mostly my own.

      John I've said it before and I'll say it again, your photographs out hunting are amazing! The most creative and insightful images I have ever seen brought back from safari! Unreal mate, I just wish I could afford a pro like yourself to come along for the ride!
