Reindeer hunting in Greenland
I would like to share with you a photo from a September reindeer hunting trip in West Greenland, where I am currently living, three men, five minutes, 9 reindeer. In addition to the four we had shot earlier in the day. The photo shows some of the catch. There is essentially no road in Greenland, you go by boat to the area and walk from shore. The following day was hard. Eleven hours with heavy backpacks to carry some 400 kg of meat back to shore. Winter supply definitely has been secured. My .308 win STEYR Scout Rifle works well.
Schatzi`s trophy Kudu
Schatzi Mohr from South Africa took this 62.75 inch Kudu, shot at 127 metres, full frontal shot, truly a magnificent spiral horned antelope. It will enter the Rowland Ward book of records, where it joins a few other antelope placed in the book magnificent trophy, a memorable hunt, a great rifle and super optics, WAIDMANSHEIL und WAIDMANNSDANK!!!!!!! The rifle was a STEYR Mannlicher Luxus in .30-06.
Red stag and wild boar
The Red Stag was taken by Tomo Svetic from ARTEMIS HUNTING LTD in Croatia with his beloved .30-06 STEYR rifle at a 180 meters with a 180 grains Nosler Partition.
The wild boar was shot by one of his clients, Jordie from the UK with the same rifle. We hope he soon recovers from the ”scope kiss” :-).
The rifle has more than 1000 rounds fired and the accuracy is still around 14 mm (less than ½ MOA).
Fox hunting in Australia
I would just like to thank you for the Steyr Pro Varmint that I purchased. This is without doubt the most accurate rifle I have ever laid my hands on. My first outing with it I shot 16 foxes at ranges from 200 - 500 meters. Then proceeded to shoot 37 more foxes over the next 3 nights. I have spent countless hours lying on rabbit warrens and regularly make shots out to 600 meters on rabbits. This rifle loves Sierra 69 gr projectiles. I thought I would send you some photos of my adventures with the Steyr.
Pic. 1: First shot in the field from the Pro Varmint is a 300 meter head shot
Pic. 2: 2 foxes shot at 400 meters
Pic. 4: 600 meter rabbit

Artemis Hunting ltd. highly recommend Steyr rifles.
On this roe buck we (Mr. Tomo Svetic from Croatia with his US client) tested the .30-06 STEYR PRO HUNTER Stainless with Sako 180gr Hammerhead and this bullet worked fine on deer and boar as well. The grouping at 100m was way less than 20mm. This deer was shot at 80m. Because of great abilities in all conditions Steyr Pro Hunter Stainless steel was the official rifle for Artemis Hunting ltd. in season 2008./2009. Artemis Hunting ltd. highly recommend Steyr rifles.
Bison - 1,000 lb
First time huntress Cathy Kempa (New Mexico, USA) dropped this 1,000 lb bison with one shot at 134 long paces, using her new Steyr ProHunter in .308 Winchester.
She is now hooked on hunting, and is working on her "shopping list" for big game she wants to harvest, while with her husband!
Hunting in The Netherlands
"I shot this roe deer with my Classic Mannlicher Stutzen 30-06 a few weeks ago in my hunting grounds in The Netherlands. My Labrador Max (2,5 years old) looks as proud as Lucifer!"
"A wonderful weapon and I have just ordered a Classic Mannlicher Goiserer in .223 for foxes etc."
Best regards from The Netherlands

"Waidmannsheil" with new MANNLICHER LUXUS
Elke Bauer killed this 6 year old female Chamois at about 140 yards with the new STEYR MANNLICHER LUXUS rifle in the Austrian Mountains. She used a 165 grains .308 Winchester bullet from Sierra. As a typical European "one shot kill" the chamois died right there in his tracks.
Thanks for a great rifle. This is a more than 1100lb North American Bison I killed over the weekend. Sub freezing conditions with ice on everything and as usual the Steyr Scout was 100% reliable. This makes the fourth Bison I have killed with this rifle and I have to say it is the finest big game gun/cartridge combination I have ever used. Clean, reliable kill everytime. The lightweight really pays off when you are trying to stalk in these conditions. The cartridge is great. I hope you continue to market this gun and cartridge because they excellent.

Strong Kudu in Africa
Franz Xaver Dietl shot a koodoo in very cliffy territory on 180 meters with his MANNLICHER PRO HUNTER .376 Steyr, Hornady 270gr TM. All participants have been attacked by wild wasps while recovering the koodoo. A very painful but also unforgetable experience.

Expedition to Greenland
After a one and a half year preparation Philipp Benda and Lukas Brandner have started to cross Greenland from south to the north as the fourth expedition team worldwide.
Twosome, on foot, with skis, with kiteglider and without any outside assistance.
For protection against possible attacks from polar bears they had a MANNLICHER SCOUT .376 Steyr in their luggage.
Unfortunately the expedition had to be aborted after Lukas Brandner slumped into a crevasse.
