The squirrel cull continues, and we’re staking out the bushy-tails’ favourite feeding places in the woods this week in episode 47 – and there are some interesting wildlife encounters along the way. Patience is the key when it comes to this kind of hunting, and Mat Manning’s persistence and steady shooting are rewarded with a respectable bag. We’ve even caught some of the action on scope-cam.
On test this week is the Hawke Airmax 30 SF. This top-notch scope boasts serious optical quality, along with neat features including an illuminated reticle and side parallax focus.
We’ve also got a news special from the IWA Outdoor Classics 2016 show in Nuremberg, Germany. This massive trade event is a treasure trove of new kit releases, and there’s gear from FX, MTC, Pallas, Cometa, Walther, Hawke and NiteSite in our roundup.
