Minox ZE5i 3-15x56 riflescope review

Minox ZE5i 3-15×56 riflescope review

I split my hunting year between two countries where shooting culture is significantly different. There are differences in seasons, available species, hunting techniques and it also means different hunting equipment. When I look at the optics I use in Poland, they are either good low light fixed 6×42, 8×56 or 56mm objective variable scopes and [...]

It was a good day out. Not as busy as last year, but this time I went on Sunday and it was Mother’s day as well. Apparently Saturday was much busier, but it was better for me and easier to film and take some pictures.

MINOX 8x56 BL German made binoculars - initial review

MINOX 8×56 BL German made binoculars – initial review

New binoculars I was thinking about getting a new pair of binoculars for a while. I have an old pair of Zeiss 8×56 that has sentimental value for me. They belonged to my wife’s grandfather that probably received them as a gift from a grateful foreign hunter after a successful stalk. When I had them [...]

Neck shot doe

Neck shot doe

This is definitely the worst winter I have experience since we came to Scotland 7 years ago… It has been wet and windy almost every day, certainly most of the weekends were wet. When a forecast for the Saturday improved a bit I thought it was the time to go out, and I got an [...]

A look at life from a deer stand by Steve Chapman – book review

A Look at Life from a Deer Stand Devotional[/amazon_image] I have good collection of deer books from Poland, UK and other European countries as well as some from New Zealand.

Another victim of fencing...

Another victim of fencing…

I come across one of these at least once each year. They all pretty much similar cases – a young deer trying to jump a fence but gets caught be a hind leg. A sorry sight…

First deer hunt in 2014

First deer hunt in 2014

A friend invited me to join him stalking Saturday morning. We planned to go on a New Year’s Day, but weather was not great and we postponed till Saturday. It was a nice dry morning (finally ) and after having dome problems with a car we eventually got to plantation. I had been there couple [...]

Man-eaters of Kumaon by Jim Corbett - book review

Man-eaters of Kumaon by Jim Corbett – book review

It may not be anything new for you, but discovering Jim Corbett’s books was a revelation for me. I was looking for something new to read and someone mentioned “Man-eaters of Kumaon” by Jim Corbett. I was sceptical at first as in contrary to many hunters I am not really dreaming about African safari or [...]
