A Different Kind of Shooting

For a change something completely different!

Every single day we go out into the field and shoot wildlife. Normally this includes shutter speeds, apertures and big lenses.

Glen, a friend visiting from Australia, took the following videos last week while Gavin and I went to do a shoot of a different kind. One that involves targets, rifles and pretty big calibre bullets!

We have to do a logbook shoot every month and these two clips show myself and Gavin doing a 30-20-10. This evaluation requires you to fire successfully at three targets at 30, 20 and 10 meters respectively. This all has to happen in less than 15 seconds.

Good fun and a subtle reminder that we work in the wild! No cages. No zoos. No tame animals - This is the real thing!

As always I look forward to hearing from you.

Until next time!
