Aussiehunter has been evolving since its inception in late 2011. My name is Don Caswell, I retired in early 2012 and wanted an absorbing project to pursue that would build upon my existing interests and passions. The result was the aussiehunter web site.
For thirty years I have been a freelance writer, mostly for the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (SSAA) and I have always striven to share and perpetuate my approach to, and the joy of, hunting.
“The Aussiehunter web site contains a wealth of useful and entertaining information, images and stories. I hope you will enjoy reading of my adventures. ”
Responding to reader requests, aussiehunter will be featuring more product reviews and offering a select range of such products for sale.
This section contains hunting stories and guidance on how to become proficient in the sport. Also included is information on choosing a hunting knife and how to sharpen knives. Naturally, the correct processing of game meat is covered too. We touch on safety and survival in the wilderness and also give some consideration to fishing.
Here are the more technical aspects of shooting, with advice on sighting rifles, how to evaluate accuracy and reload ammunition. One of the most popular sections of the entire web site are detailed ballistic and trajectory data for 160 of the most popular rifle calibres. Air rifles are well covered too.
