    I would personally love the oportunity to host some of the regulars here on Ah.com

    Bow-hunters, double rifle hunters, big bore shooters and buffalo manics all welcome and encouraged to join us in Australia's remote Northern frontier, Arnhemland.

    Thanks for looking,
    Paul.

    We take bulls like the top one pictured, each year.

    Prime Trophy times are Sept onwards when surface waters have dried forcing remote-area living bulls to leave their remote sanctuaries.

    I would certainly do my damndest to get you the very best bull we could but cannot make any assurities of exactly what size as this is a pure wilderness hunt, much is in the hands of Dianna.

    Over the course of each season we would average + or - 100 s.c.i.
    Some being much larger and some being smaller.

    Because the area we operate in is so remote it is extremely difficult for us to predict required price rises from season to season. All supplies (food, fuel etc) are trucked in from quite a distance and we rely on contractors pricing.
    We try and absorb minimal rises but must pass on major ones.
    E.G fuel has hit $3.00/lt in our hunting area and we use A LOT of fuel for each hunt !
    Next year it could still be $3.00 or it could be $6.00.

    Jaco, "never put off to tommorrow what can be done today".
    If you are already visiting Aus this year we have prime dates available from Sept onwards.
    Get one or two buddies organised (rates are much better as 2x1 or 3x1) and come on down and hunt some bulls with me.

    Very nice Paul

    Wholey smokes Jerome, I hope for your wife's sake your as good and efficient around the house as you are on AH.com !
    Don't know how you do it but thanks for salvaging those posts.


    Frederik, thanks for the very kind words and yes that top bull is a dream bull, but with a lot of walking and covering lots of ground they ARE there.
    One of my staff photographed this bull on a swamp less than 20km's from my camp several years back and he has not been seen since. He is more than likely still around as he was only just entering his prime years when pictured and has surely only just moved on to his own new territory as they tend to do. "We WILL meet again !".


    Good hunting,

    Paul.
