Win an amazing Blaser R8 Professional Success worth over £3,650 in our exclusive competition


We are thrilled to be teaming up with Blaser to offer this sensational prize: a Blaser R8 Professional Success with brown stock, black elastomer inlays, and fluted barrel with a threaded muzzle.

Blaser’s R8 Professional Success has fast become one of the most desirable rifles on the planet, combining Blaser’s legendary accuracy with a revolutionary stock design to further aid shooting comfort and performance. The straight-pull bolts means rapid reloading while the detachable trigger and magazine delivers crisp pulls and added security.

Compact, huntable and engineered to the highest standards, the R8 Professional Success will help you maximise your hunting success.

So how do you win? One of the biggest challenges we face as shooters is making people understand why our sport is still relevant in the modern world. We know how invested hunters are in our wild spaces, the passion they have for conservation and the close link they have with the food they put on the table… but we want you to tell us what makes you tick as a 21st-century hunter.

“Hunting has a place in society because…”

Send your entry to the following email address: and don’t forget to include your name, address and telephone number.
