Hunting Hares with Golden Eagles

Another awesome video from Fieldsports Britain:

We are launching eagles on hares in Lincolnshire, George Digweed on wild boar in Sussex and we are out with the Banwen Miners foxhounds pack in the Valleys of South Wales. It’s a packed programme this week, with incredible footage of hares’ tactics when faced with Roy Lupton and friends’ flying eagles. Meanwhile, George Digweed has been after a wild boar for months, and finally has his chance. And who says foxhunting is snooty when men come up from the coal pits, shower, change into hunting pink and ride out with hounds?

The world’s most expensive Rifle

Not sure I could ever justify spending that much on a rifle.

If you are on the hunt for an exclusive handmade hunting rifle, you seriously need to check out the creation from the Swedish gun and rifle maker VO Vapen. The VO rifles are all handmade by Mr. Master Gunsmith Viggo Olsson and his son Gunsmith Ulf Olsso using a patented takedown system, which allows the person to use several different calibers to the same rifle. The house also has the honor of being the makers of the VO Falcon Edition, the world’s most expensive rifle that costs about $820,000. The rifle, featuring engravings of Peregrine and Saker falcons, honors the falconry traditions in the Arabian world.

Mental Health Break

I’ve always though falconry would be a cool sport. Green, gets rid of pest and awesome!
