Thanks for the well wishes. I'm about half way now. The drive is 2800km. I don't mind it though pretty relaxing. Spent last night in Jericho in my swag at the show grounds and have just stopped at walkabout creek hotel the pub where crocodile Dundee was filmed.

Toooo funny Ilene. I can assure you she gets a nice life outside of buffalo camp! Well serviced and always clean. It's been lifted a couple inches since last year too but hard to tell with all the gear on board!

Camp set up
The remainder of the drive was much the same arrival at the property first thoughts are man is it ever dry. Apparently there wasn't much of a wet season. Very little grass/ground cover the buff have it chewed down pretty well. No burnt areas with green feed either initial thoughts are it could be a challenging season. With all that said camp set up went well and to my knowledge I didn't forget anything. Oh and I saw plenty of shooter buff plenty of scrub bulls one wild dog and one giant boar. I got some photos only of the bulls that were within 100 yards of the track plenty others spotted at a distance. First hunters arrive in 30 minutes!

Afternoon 1. Stalked 100 incher he got nervous at 75 yards. Stalked 80 incher got to 32 and saw shadows

Thom shot scrubber

Day1 morningThom stalked a bedded buff got to 21 yards and double lung shot the buff for a short recovery of 50 yards. We stalked a mid 90s lost in the river. Stalked to 21 yards of 70inch bull. Stalked 22 yards of scrubber busted drawing.

Day2 Tim shot buff. Was a bit of a rodeo from what I heard. I busted my toe. Jake passed young bulls and got to 45 yards of a good bull.

Day 3 was a bit of a slow day. Only shots fired were at a wild dog at 50 yards with a longbow. Got the dog on the bounce but only with the back end.

Day 4 was a full day out from camp. Mission 1 was getting jake a bull. Mission accomplished at 11AM 25 yard quartering away shot hit a touch far back 1 lung only. Thom missed a sub 10 yard shot at a cat that worked down a dry creek right to us. Thom also missed a white dog on a uphill shot around the 20 yard mark shooting low. We thenFished with no luck at the big hole where we had lunch. had a swimsuit the hot springs and road hunted back to camp. Tim and I stalked a bull got busted and I called him into 35 yards no shot taken.

Day 5 stalked to 15 yards of 100 incher no shot through thick cover then got busted. Jake missed short horn bull at 15 yards. Thom arrowed 2 pigs after a long mornings walk. The swamps are dry so pigs will be hard come by this year. Saw 2 big scrub bulls as well one that Dino knows as 4H!

Day 6 was a good one with big plans to go hard it paid off with Mick and Jake taking an old cow at 30 yards and Tim and I getting a buff that should go in the high 90s.

It was a very busy week so my apologies for not being as detailed as I normally am. All up the boys had about 20 stalks each and took home all they wanted.
