Pre Hunt Training and Reading

It is highly recommended that you only arrive in Africa once you are totally comfortable and familiar with your rifle.
Go down to the range and become comfortable at shooting off a bipod style rest. Even if one is a seasoned marksman it is still good to get down to the range and dust off any cobwebs and re-familiar oneself with ones extension.

  • Zero in ones rifle at 25m and then practice at 100m,200m& 300m
  • Learn your bullets trajectories
  • Practice quick free stand shooting at spaced targets of 30m, 20m & 10m
