- 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.
