Apparently “decent journalists, trained and skilled” think hunters use air rifles

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.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
