We are currently accepting bookings for 2019 & 2020 for the following hunts:

Water buffalo (Bubalus Bubalis), while they are plentiful in numbers, the trick is finding an animal that is considered to be of ‘trophy’ standard. A trophy bull water buffalo will weigh in at between 700 kg up to well over 1000 kg, stand 1.5+ metres at the shoulder and will boast a set of horns with well over a 1-metre spread. These big animals have a keen sense of smell, perfectly good eyesight, acute hearing and, while they are not gun shy, they are very much in tune with their local surroundings. Spook them and they will run forever; annoy them and you had better have your wits about you. Having 1000kg (2,200 lbs) of very annoyed water buffalo bearing down on you will certainly get your attention!

1 – Trophy Buffalo Bull (95 SCI or above) + 2 Cull Buffalo (Broken horn, injured, sick, numbers needing thinned or too old to make it another year)

The banteng (Bos javanicus) is a species of wild cattle found in Southeast Asia that was first introduced to Australia in 1849 with the establishment of a British military outpost called Port Essington on the Cobourg Peninsula. The population has not strayed far from its initial point of domesticated life; all currently live within the Garig Gunak Barlu National Park to the north-western Murgenella Floodplains area where they are found primarily within the monsoon forests, woodland areas, springs and grasslands.
