A Worthy Cause:
Martin Frampton from UK Deer Tracking receives a Mauser M12 Tracking Rifle from Robert Sajitz, MD of Blaser Sporting Ltd.
This highly specialist tool was designed by Mauser for the specific purpose of follow-up tracking and humane dispatch.
UKDTR are a voluntary organisation with nationwide coverage offering a much needed service to British Deer-stalkers.
