  • comment300Winter, koue en vandag se jagters... Dit is bitter koud in Pretoria terwyl ek skryf. Dit sneeu in die Kaap en die Drakensberge is oortrek met ’n wit kombers. In Protchefstroom moes mense vroegoggend temperature van minus agt aandurf, terwyl dit elders in die land selfs nog kouer was. Ons is gewis nou in die hartjie van die winter en ’n ysige koue lê oor die land. Om nou vroegoggend in ’n koue skuiling te klim vat mannemoed – veral wanneer dit ’n putskuiling is. ’n Jagter moet baie deursettingvermoë aan die dag lê om ure lank in dié koue still te sit en wag vir sy prooi om nader te kom. In dié soort weer verkies ek gewis om eerder ’n bok in die veld te bekruip. Ten minste help die loop en ’n bietjie son om jou lyf te ontdooi...
  • lead380The Everest of big-game hunting... I remember 12 May 1998 as if it were yesterday. Perched high in a tree stand near the fringes of Wood Buffalo National Park in northwestern Alberta, I was watching a huge black bear amble his way into bow range. Unknowingly, it was the beginning of a quest that would consume me until I let a fateful arrow fly on Isla de Carmen in the Baja of Mexico on 9 May 2011. The 13 years of my life between those two hunts were driven by my dream to take all 29 species of North America’s big game with archery tackle. But there was more: I wanted to document it all on broadcast video. No one had been able to capture 29 separate adventures, 29 arrow impacts on camera. I intended to be the first...

     
  • bowtest380Testing Bowtech's Fuel... The previous Bowtech I tested was the the RPM. My impression that it is a young man’s bow must be seen again the fact that I’m approaching 50 at great speed… so any age below 40 is young, ha, ha, ha. But the Fuel is something different – this is a bow for everybody, simply because like a number of offerings these days, it can adjust from 14 to 70 pounds, and from 18 to 30 inches draw lenght. But I don’t want to evaluate the Fuel as another super-adjustable entry level bow. No, instead it falls into an intermediate price class, about  R5 700, and Bowtech discontinued the Assassin, so I see this as an attempt to fill the entry level, and the intermediate price class range. In terms of being a serious hunting bow, I am very impressed. Bear in mind that for this price you get a multi-pin sight, stabiliser, arrow rest and attached quiver included. In fact, it is the whole kit except arrows and a release...

  • Thali380Hunting at Thali Thali... I recently went on holiday to Langebaan, with the plan of visiting our dear friends who moved there last year: Christiaan, Nicolene and the children. Now Christiaan is a good friend. When we got there, he had a hunt planned for us. The last time we hunted together, I had debs on a blue wildebeest and he on an impala. Unlucky for him, the blue wildebeest came in first. We had a very difficult follow-up, and he lost out. So, naturally, he planned the hunt and the first shot was his. Fair, I accepted. Of course the next surprise was when we started to discuss the venue. He told me of this enthusiastic and dedicated game farmer/archer/hunter, who had a lovely place just outside Langebaan. Oh, I said. Yes, he said, the farm is called Thali-Thali...

  • Uittreksel: "Winter, koue en vandag se jagters"  – Augustus 2014. "Ek kyk na Tom Miranda se DVD en na al die diere wat hy platgetrek het – sommige van hulle in ’n ysige landskap – soos sy ysbeerjag, sy bergleeu en die muskusos wat hy in Kanada platgetrek het. Dan sien ek hom in die water staan langs ’n Amerikaanse eland (moose) wat hy te voet gejag het of tussen die kaktusplante terwyl hy ’n woestynskaap jag..." – Rean

Waarom die Laatlos tydskrif? Daar is nie tans ’n ander tydskrif wat só doelgerig die baie uitdagings wat mense tans mee gekonfronteer aanspreek nie. As populêre alternatiewe energie en -lewenstyl tydskrif is Laatlos enig in sy soort in die Suid-Afrikaanse mark. Laatlos wil jou metgesel wees in die ontdekking van benaderings, planne en oplossings op die terreine van alternatiewe en volhoubare energie, konstruksie, veiligheid, selfversorgende voedselproduksie, opvoeding, entrepreneurskap, ekonomie, finansiële welvaart, innoverende tegnologie en oorlewingsvaardigheid. Eerstens deur te besin oor die manier waarop ons ons lewens inrig of wil inrig, sonder om meegesleur te word deur standpunte, insigte en modelle wat as die algemeen aanvaarde voorgehou word. In hierdie besinning loop tradisie en innovasie hand-aan-hand. Soms word nuwe denke vereis en soms weer is dit nodig om te delf in ons verlede en dit wat oor die geskiedenis heen reeds oor besin is, maar vergete geraak of deur die hoofstroom vermy is. Tweedens om ’n lewe te lééf gespeen van die sisteem! Om nie afhanklik te wees van en uitgelewer te wees aan die bestuur, beheer en manipulasie van mega-instellings soos regerings en groot monopolistiese verspreidingsnetwerke byvoorbeeld ’n elektrisiteitsvoorsieningskorporasie nie...

roedeer2Hunting roe deer with a traditional bow
For the last 15 years I have had the luck to be authorised during my summer holidays to hunt the roe deer buck (in France, depending on the place you live, having a summer tag is more or less easy). I’m a traditional bowhunter, hunting the hard way (no tree stand, no blind, no decoy, no camo). I’m hunting alone – combining walk and stalk, encounter and ambush methods.The place I hunt during summer time is a 250 hectares typical western France place: small meadows, small rivers, small woods, a lot of hedges and many fields (corn, sunflower and wheat). By chance, our holidays house is inside this area which is private...
