Gearing Up for Tahr Hunting

Kevin Steele is getting ready for a long-anticipated tahr hunting expedition to New Zealand and runs through the gear he'll be toting along on the trip.


Steele will be rifle hunting and selected a Winchester .300 Magnum using Hornady ammunition. He's got a 3X-15X Zeiss scope on top to help with long-range shooting and aging eyes.


Tahr hunts take place in rugged, mountainous terrain and knowing that your equipment is up the task is important. That goes for what you wear as well as what you're shooting.

Steele will be traveling by plane which means he'll need to have a strong, sturdy gun case to make sure his rifle makes the trip in one piece and with minimal impact on accuracy.
