Karen Mehall, editor of NRA’s American Hunter joined me in the factory to build the very first Mark V Camilla Deluxe. We spent about 3 hours assembling the rifles and then verified our accuracy in Weatherby’s indoor range. The process was very informative and made us both appreciate what goes into a premium firearm. It is considered a production rifle, but the craftsmanship involved is much more along the lines of a custom rifle.

That night we headed out east of Paso Robles, CA to get our sight...

Weatherby Road Trip

1 Comments| Posted in Women of Weatherby By Brenda Weatherby

The family road trip has been planned for over a year now and with each month the anticipation grew. We would leave from Paso Robles, CA and make our way through a number of stops: The Grand Canyon in Arizona to river raft; Moab in Utah to off road and mountain bike; Kessler Canyon in Colorado to bird hunt and fly fish and T55 in Wyoming to hunt antelope and mule deer. Honestly, the school year beginning has left me ragged with all of the events to fit in my schedule. The kids too were exhaus...

I feel so cliché when I write about my hunting trips, because the big take away isn’t ever about the animals harvested, it is always about the experience and accomplishment of the physical hunt, and nearly never about the actual shot. This experience was incredible, ten days of waking up to c...

Safari Sisters

Comments| Posted in Women of Weatherby By Brenda Weatherby

It was 6 women in Namibia in search of African plains game and the time of their lives. The only men were the professional hunters, the trackers and the photographers. Yes, I am serious! The women held the rifles and not just any, but the Vanguard Camilla in .308 WIN. The game was plentiful, but challenging to get close range. We had sighted our rifles in at 200 yards but ended up taking some long shots successfully. We had practiced standing shots with sticks, hoping that we’d have the ch...
