It’s time for some airgun hunting, today on Team Wild TV.

We join Team Wild TV expert Matt Dubber as he is out working pest control for a popular holiday resort in South Africa.

Starlings are very problematic birds in South Africa and cause havoc in their environments. Numbers have massively increased and controlling the population is critical.

Matt has been brought in by management of this favoured holiday spots This is a very important case of vermin removal as the starlings can overrun an area and if left unintended could ruin the resorts reputation. Due to the location and suitable nesting spots, the starling numbers have almost grown out of control.

But this isn’t like any typical pest control outing, the location is thriving with tourist activities, Matt can’t go around shooting the birds left, right and centre.

Thankfully Matt has the perfect air rifle for the job. The Air Arms S410 TDR complete with silencer and discreet carry case will help take out several birds without interrupting any family vacations.

Screen Shot 2015-06-256 at 16

The TDR packs down with its scope fixed, so it stays in perfect zero, ready to be assembled in less than 20 seconds to provide that renowned S410 performance.

Up against difficult circumstances and very clever birds, Matt has his work cut out for him, but with his shooting skills and the help of the S410 TDR he’s up for the challenge.

Team Wild TV Expert Matt Dubber explains why a faster shooter might not always be the most accurate!!

“The faster your gun can shoot, the more accurate it will be”. It has to be true, right?  The answer is a little more complicated then that. Sure, a higher velocity will result in a flatter trajectory, but there are more factors at play than one may think. Let’s take a closer look at these factors, shall we?

To answer the question of Pellet Speed vs Accuracy, we need to first understand why a pellet was designed the way it was. Have you ever wondered why a pellet has such an odd shape compared to a bullet? The answer is quite simple: Bullets are designed for supersonic flight, and pellets are designed for subsonic flight. Because pellets are traveling at low speeds, they need be stabilized by drag, and the skirt of the pellet does just that – It keeps the center of gravity near the front of the projectile, and keeps the nose pointing forward. However, this high-drag design causes problems at speeds approaching Mach 1.

A pellet traveling at really high speeds will begin to tumble because of the forces that are exerted on the pellet as it nears the transonic zone. A pellet traveling 900 FPS will begin to experience the problems caused by supersonic flight, because the high-drag design speeds up the air passing over certain parts of the pellet. This means that in order to achieve stable flight a pellet needs to be traveling at 900fps or lower (theoretically). Some pellets can retain their stability at higher speeds, but I have seen very few that can stay accurate after being fired at more than 1000 FPS.

Screen Shot 2015-03-05 at 14.07.05

If you live in the UK, the 12 FPE energy limit can actually be a blessing in disguise, as it ensures you aren’t sucked into the belief that cranking the power up is always a benefit. Where I’m from (South Africa), this is a huge problem.

To achieve the best possible accuracy in your rifle, you will want to find the point at which you begin to lose stability and then track back a bit, so that the pellet is flying fast enough to maintain a fairly flat trajectory while still maintaining its stability. If you own a gun that’s shooting really hot (950 FPS or higher), send it in to be tuned down a bit – You’ll lose some of that knock-down power, but the accuracy you’ll get will make up for that.

Screen Shot 2015-03-05 at 14.08.03

Is it the end of the world if you’ve bought a rifle that’s shooting too fast and you can’t do anything about it? Well, that depends on what you intend to use it for. If you’re just plinking in your backyard, then certainly not. If you’re Hunting, however, it’s important to be able to be able to hit the vitals of your quarry every time, and you’ll probably want to limit your hunting to within 20 Meters or so.

When the time comes to choose a rifle, don’t be fooled – Faster isn’t always better, and the 12 Foot-Pound energy limit may actually be a blessing in disguise. High Power means nothing if you can’t put that pellet on the kill zone…but find an accurate rifle that can hit the brain of a squirrel at 50 Meters, and suddenly you’ll find that the power you thought you needed may not have been so important after all!

We hear from a few more of our experts here at Team Wild TV, giving you their tips for successful hunting in 2015. 

Matt Cole:

If you want to claim your record bag this year make sure you do your homework, watch the flight lines and check the weather forecast, it will make the difference.

Craig Jackson – Best Fox Call:

After you’ve called a fox in and shot it don’t be so hasty to go and pick it up. Carry on calling for a few minutes as there may be another one lurking in back ground. If it’s watched another one run in it may think it’s caught something. Majority of the time I’ve done this nothing else has appeared but on more than one occasion I’ve called another fox in.

BFC-twexperts-800x450

Matt Dubber:

Get to know your rifle well. Whether you’re punching paper with an airgun, smacking rabbits with a rimfire or hunting dangerous game in the depths of Africa, the same concept applies: Shooting is instinctive, and the body needs to make the rifle an extension of itself and develop muscle memory in order for the shooter to reach his full potential. Take the time to disassemble your rifle and figure out how everything works. Don’t be afraid to try different ammunition, techniques and stances. Many accomplished shooters will tell you that their success is largely due to their willingness to stick with the equipment they know and love. “Stick to your Guns”…We’ve all heard it before – It’s a simple concept to understand, but something that will enable you to get the best out of your equipment.

Lining-up-a-Shot-on-a-Pigeon-800x450

Steve Wild:

It doesn’t matter how cold, wet or tired you are always look after your kit before you think of yourself! “Look after your kit and it will look after you!”

steve_wild

Fernando Munoz: 

Identifying the safety lines of fire, looking around you and identifying your colleagues is mandatory, it will help you to recognize the areas where you cannot shoot. Following this liturgy, you will increase your success in driven hunts and even in a tree stand … after that, it’s you and your aim which must do the rest of the work.

Mention Take Down Rifle, and immediately snipers and assassins spring to mind.

A dodgy looking individual with a briefcase and inside, a host of parts and goodies all waiting to be assembled into a killing machine.

The Air Arms S410 TDR is no exception, apart from today, it’s not being assembled by a dodgy looking character! 😉

Lets have a closer look at this awesome little rifle.

What am I looking so happy for?...The Air Arms S410 TDR packs down into a handy back pack.

It’s the season for pest control and our vermin-busting duo are in the holiday spirit. With the cold weather approaching and farmers bringing their livestock in for the season ahead, Big Steve with SPD Pest Control and Team Wild’s own, Steve “Wildy” Wild, have been called in to take care of some bothersome pigeons and rats mucking up the place. Wildy gets himself into some tight spaces but gets the job done with the help of some pretty amazing nighttime hunting kit; the NiteSite NS200 and the NiteSite Spotter.

In this week’s Team Wild’s Air Power, I am in Texas hunting sheep- a black Corsican ram to be specific.

Previously I have taken a variety of sheep to help with the management of the animals. On a ranch like this ranch in particular, management of the herd is absolutely key for the herd to thrive and we’ve spotted a knarley old ram with a broken horn, which could cause serious damage to the other males when sparring. The old ram has enjoyed a long and fruitful life and needs to make way for the next generation to strengthen the gene pool and needs to be removed. Quiet, accurate and deadly, this is the perfect job for the Benjamin Rogue .357 big bore air rifle
