A few pics from my Buffalo season in the NT


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


As the title suggests these are pictures from a couple of trips I did in my local area late last year. It was traditionally owned Aboridginal land and I had exclusive access to hunt there. As you can see I had a LOT of fun.





















Most of the Buff were eaten and all of the wild cattle taken were eaten. Rifles used were a custom SMLE in 45-70 and a stock standard SMLE in 303 British.

Great pic's of an outstanding hunt. Just finished reading about the buffalo and wild ox in Aussie land. Those things can be dangerous!

They can be but I never had any problems even tracked a wounded one before (not shot by me!) through thick scrub. All's well that ends well I guess!

Wow. Neat. Looks like fun especially if you had help to butcher them!

Proof positive that you don't need the latest uber-magnum to kill big, tough critters! Very cool hunt and pictures.
