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.

Since 1981 I have been a freelance writer, photographer & illustrator.  I am the author of hunting stories and the provider of technical shooting information.  I am an independent reviewer of hunting, shooting & outdoors products, in addition to being a blogger & webmaster with Facebook & Instagram presence.  I am a senior writer for the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (SSAA) and my articles appear regularly in their publications.

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 and find value in the technical data there.
