Hunting Australia
« on: July 15, 2016, 09:58:43 AM »
Yesterday I decided to buy my plane ticket to hunt Australia so I will be hunting Water buffalo and possibly other animals while I'm there. I will fly into 29th of July to hunt until August 7th. This is a dream of mine since the days of watching crocodile Dundee if anyone is interested in coming you are more than welcome or wait to see my pictures that's fine too.

I shot 2 bulls the first day one was about a 90 inch bull which is minimal you will shoot I just got excited and wanted to shoot. The 2nd buffalo is closer to 94 inches but what is cool is one bull is a Lunar bull and the bigger one is a sweeper. Yesterday I shot a really nice 225 with really nice teeth. The Danish client shot a really nice 90 inch bull that was broomed off but was really impressive was the body size and after he shot it the bull was on a dead run in the direction of the hunter and he shot it on the run. The other Danish hunter shot a really nice sweeper that was 94 inch bull we are seeing 100+ buffalo a day easily this hunt is a blast

Here is my Scrub Bull that was a massive animal once they hit the dirt which mine is really not as big as the other ones I have seen after I shot but it's about the size of an Eland and the sow pig was shot while looking for scrub bull in the creek bed at 10 yards

The first bull is a bull of a lifetime which scores a 100 and the second bull is mid 90s and the last bull is 90 and that is minimal you will shoot over here I wasn't looking for size I was looking for the shape of the horns. The wild boar I shot was about 100kg or 225 pounds with nice cutters on the bottom which he will score good

I just shot a banteng tonight and I'm at the Airport flying out in a couple hours my big water buffalo bull measured at 105.25 inches which is huge especially for a free range. Unfortunately the meat gets wasted because they are considered pests in Australia

We cut the blackstrap out and cooked it but what it is these animals are not native of Australia and it's ruining the land so they are pests but the outfitter is finding a cold storage so he can keep the meat but you don't realize how big these animals are and you would spend more time packing out buffalo then hunting which you will be successful trust me there is a ton of buffalo and we didn't scratch the surface of the land available to hunt and still seeing 100-200 buffalo a day.

Last night the last 2 hours of my hunting trip I shot a nice Banteng which Australia is the only place you can hunt them and they are really cool it's like a scrub bull with bosses and they don't give you much time to shoot so you have to be fast with that 375 H&H I had to put 4 into him these animals are tough so if you plan to bowhunt which would be so much fun make sure you are set up with heavy arrows and a good broadhead a 2 blade is preferable. Water buffalo are bigger than Cape Buffalo keep that in mind they are huge

Looks like an amazing hunt!  Congrats!  I hear there are areas you can hunt camels too.  That would be an interesting hunt too!

Yes Australia has the largest number of Camels in the world and they are around the middle of the country and we have 6 species of deer such as Sambar, Rusa, fallow, Axis, Stagg, and Hog deer
