    Thanks for your comments, much appreciated and a dream buff come true for me.

    The bull was slightly quartering towards me and went approx 35 meters after the shot before collapsing and expiring. The shot was mid body, perhaps a tad lower ... tad forward on the shoulder to cater for the quartering on shot.

    (in the pic the shot looks a bit high, but it is purely how the bull was positioned for the pic)

    eugeneb,

    IMPRESSIVE. What an experience. Hunting a Aus buff is definitely on my list to do. Nice!
    When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.

    Thanks for the comments.

    The 2nd buff I got on the same weekend (young bull) ... this one I saw at approx 150m ... stalked to approx 60m when he picked up my movement (late afternoon ... long shadows ... sun on my back and the wind in my face) ... still not sure whether he was just curious or had a bit of an attitude, but he decided to head straight for me ... I am not as quick as I used to be (4 screws through my ankle, hence cannot run) ... quickly moved backwards to my right approx 15m and stood next to a big tree I could climb ... standing next to the tree I quickly ranged a piece of grass at 30 yards, drew my bow and waited for him ... he was still determined to get to me and I hit him square frontal as he passed the 30 yards mark ... the arrow disappeared (see pics for entry and exit (exit was on the opposite side but more-or-less where the arrow points)) ... unfortunately I lost the pic of where the arrow protruded on the opposite side approx 3" ... after the arrow struck, he turned and made approx 35m before collapsing and expiring

    Apologies for all the blood, but the frontal shots are devastating.

    Hey Eugene, congrats on your buffalo, that first bull is a toad.

    Bow-take buffalo in our conditions is a real acheivement, well done.

    Great to see hunters enjoying the experiences that Arnhemland can provide.

    Cheers,

    Paul.
