Wood stock,¬†semblance¬†of a bolt…scope…yup hunting rifle…wrong it’s an air rifle and completely inappropriate to use in a story about a hunter.
I could be wrong but I believe it is a Webley Raider 10 XS. The rifle comes in .177 and .20 and .22 calibres all of which are not¬†recommended¬†for hunting and are banned in state forests.
So much for “decent journalists, trained and skilled”. Totally reduces the impact of news items like this with completely mis-leading and inaccurate pictures.
The Herald has a real problem, but I am not sure they give enough of a stuff to care.
