AUSTRALIAN BUFFALO HUNTERS: Welcome to outback Australia. We specialise in dangerous game safaris for rifle and bowhunters in scenic Arnhemland in the tropical Northern Territory.

Look no further, we provide the finest quality wilderness Buffalo hunting available.

DANGEROUS GAME: Yes they charge. I have stopped 9
charges. Water Buffalo bulls weigh 700- 900kg and even up to 1000kg (2200lb).
Water Buffalo can be just as tough and nasty as Cape Buffalo, and the terrain is often
thick bush with close encounters. Our hunters and guides have also been charged many
times. " A wounded 51" Bull turned and charged us, the hunter's brain shot
(with 375H&H solid) knocked the Buffalo down 5m from me, we were catching our breath,
when the Bull quickly moved to raise to his feet again (the first 375 bullet was low and
only stunned the bull). We both reacted and fired, this time Malte's brain shot was
perfect. The hunter and his partner nervously sat and admired this trophy for some
time. Two excellent bulls in 2 days... "
More recently a wounded Buffalo bull was followed up into thick bush, " Greg and I moved slowly with rifles pointed forward and safeties off, I followed the blood trail with only 10m vision, suddenly along a game trail the Buffalo was coming fast with his head up. I jumped to the side and Greg fired at 8m but his shot went high, the bull lowered his head getting ready to hit me and I fired the Holland & Holland 465 double into his head, but amazingly he kept coming... I pulled the rifle barrels back down through the smoke of the first shot, I aimed to save my life and fired a 480gr Woodleigh solid between the horns which stopped the Bull 4m from us." What an exciting hunt and an incredible 54" spread old Buffalo. Only an accurate brain or spine shot with a solid will consistently stop a charging wounded Buffalo. The extremely tough skin can be 25- 50mm (1- 2") thick around the neck area, and the frontal skull bone of a very old Bull can be 25-50mm (1- 2") thick. Trophy sizes range from 90-110SCI with many 100-130cm (42-52") wide bulls taken in our concession. Make the challenge, come with us to experience Australia's best buffalo hunting.

We have Blaser R8's, Whitworth, Kimber Caprivi, CZ custom rifles, in 375H&H & 416 Rigby calibers, with quality Ziess optics in QD mounts.

Close Up Heart Stopping Bow-Hunting !!!
ARNHEMLAND REAL WILDERNESS: Aboriginal owned Arnhemland is like another country, situated well east of Darwin and Kakadu, consisting of almost 100,000 sq klm of bush country (600,000 sq miles).. the size of Denmark. Arnhemland is a place where time stands still, no farms, no fences, no sealed roads. I respect the people and everything about the country, my sweat and blood is in the soil, and my heart longs to return when I am away. Your ultimate experience will take you on a rare journey into the outback wilderness, flood plains, wild bush, scenic rivers and escarpement country. Arnhemland is one of the worlds last frontiers, where aboriginal people live off the land in small communities, hunting, fishing and following traditional values. This is the only place in Australia with large herds of totally FREE range wild Buffalo.
PREMIUM ARNHEMLAND SAFARIS: With 20 years of operating in central Arnhemland, we deliver excellent trophies because we do not overhunt our long term licensed concession which covers over 150km x 70km. We hunt these highly productive areas of good soils, grasses, springs and fresh water. Our area knowledge ensures your success. This is Australia's best Buffalo hunting. You will Trek along century old Buffalo trails in scenic valleys bordered by rock escarpments leading to streams, rivers and billabongs edged with tropical pandanus. Hunt the thick and heavy cover or trek the open plains and rugged hills to glass herds of roaming wild Buffalo. Be aware, only a few safari companies have correct authority to operate in Arnhemland, a privilege few hunters will ever experience.

BOW-HUNTING: My first ever client was a Master Bow Hunter, PH and Extreme wealth of knowledge. Adrian taught me many skills I use on every hunt. Now my passion is also bowhunting. Buffalo have excellent smell, eyesight, and hearing. Bowhunters will appreciate our experience and the variation of terrain. Medium to light colour camo works well in the Australian bush, and light weight Leafy Suits are recomended. Remember this is a thick skinned dangerous game animal equivelant to hunting Cape Buffalo or Hippo, so please come with a +70- 80lb bow and heavy 800-1000grain arrows with strong 2 blade broadheads. You will never forget being close up on a large Buffalo bull, the amazing stalk, the tension and excitement, your heart pounding in your throat, then control as you draw, steady and release your shot... and watch the flight.... !!

BANTENG: The only place in the world for hunting wild, free range Banteng. North West Arnhem land and Coburg Peninsular hold excellent numbers of truly wild Banteng. Only a small number of legal operators offer this exciting hunt and magnificent species. Our hunts are conducted in NW Arnhem land THS licensed NLC concession. This is an exciting 4-day hunt in tropical thick country, price $18,500. A beautiful and tough animal a bit smaller than Buffalo, but wary and often difficult to approach... and yes they can also have a nasty attitude and charge. Extra charter flights required between Banteng and Buffalo areas.
ETHICAL HUNTING: In this modern age, it is often hard to find real hunting. Imagine a traditional old African safari.. Well thats us, you earn your trophies the hard way, hunting on foot and tracking wild game... We do not hunt from vehicles, ATVs or helicopters. We do not hunt Buffalo on ranches or stations. We are dedicated to real fair chase hunts in central Arnhemland, Australia's best. After a long day, and exciting stalk, when you sit next to your hard earned trophy, you will be very proud of your achievements.
