    G'day Monish, thank-you for the generous welcome. Please be patient with me as I familiarise myself with the workings of the site. As I work out how to post pics and stuff I will contribute some material regarding our hunt operation. Basically though, we work in a very remote and pristine wilderness portion of far Eastern Arnhemland which is an Aboriginal owned portion of the Northern Territory of Australia. There is NO commerce, agriculture, domestic stock, fences, few roads and little development, just miles and miles of wilderness, wildlife and ofcourse buffalo.We hunt the old school way, on foot, at close range, our results dictated by our efforts and the luck Dianna bestows upon us.
    Our ( aussie ) buffalo may not generate the level of interest amongst hunters that Cape buff do and as a bovine hunting manic I find this difficult to explain.When hunted ethically, on foot and at close quarters the Asiatic buffalo provides a challenging and rewarding big game hunt experience, as our hunt clients can attest to. In addition to this, the value of widlife and wilderness experience provided by our locality combines to make this a memorable hunt experience. I look forward to sharing this with you all on African Hunting.com cheers...Paul.

    Buffalo hunting in NT

    Hey PaulT.

    Good to see another Aussie around. Looking to head up to NT next year for a buff hunt. I've been speaking to a couple of outfitters on various deals they have going (trophy vs management bull + cows).

    Hope to catch up for a chat this week? Sent you an email via your Southern Safaris Australia site.

    Paul good to have you on AH. I also want to do a buffalo hunt in the northern territories. My wife has wanted to go to Australia for many years and that would be a good way to do it. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your operation.

    Cheers!

    Thanks again to all who have welcomed me here to AH's.com.
    Dan, I have sent you a p.m and will catch-up with you at your earliest convenience.
    Skyline, thank-you for your interest in our hunts and the N.T. Details of our service can be had at www.southernsafaris.com.au
    Many ( most ) of our hunters travel with wives/girlfreinds ( sometimes one of each !!, our camp has been constructed to provide comfort and service for hunters and non-hunters of either sex ) so that they may enjoy the fantastic sightseeing and tourism options available in the Northern Territory after the hunt. Heratige listed Kakadu National Park, crocodile viewing tours, sportsfishing, eco-tours etc etc. There is lots to do. If you would like further details on our hunts, or tourism options available, please feel free to email me.
    Good health and good hunting to you all...
    Paul T.

    G'day Jerome. Firstly, my thanks to you for providing a facility such as this which serves both the hunting public, as means for obtaining information, reference and advice as well as providing a platform for operators such as myself to be able to expose our hunt service to the hunting market.Secondly I thank-you and all those that have warmly welcomed me to what obviously is a valued and respected web service site. I'm still trying to work out how to operate certain functions ( web sites are much more complicated than a gun or a knife ! ) so please be patient with me, I am planning to try and up-load some pics today. Jerome, I hope there's a big Arnhemland buffalo on your bucket-list ! Thanks to all again.
    Good health and good hunting to all,
    Paul

    Hi Jerome, thanks for the thumbs up on the bulls we take. You are 100% correct about the area we hunt, and Arnhemland in general. It is simply an amazing place to hunt and experience. Remote & harsh as it is it provides a unique oportunity to hunt in a region where the only commercial activity is the safari hunting.Make no mistake, the hunting can still be very challenging as there are very few vehicle access tracks and broad areas where the only access is on foot, but the animals are there and perseverence and effort usually pays dividends. Thanks again for your positive comments, I will try and post more pics as I get time to do so. PaulT.

    Thank-you for your welcome to the site Werner.
    Good health and good hunting to you, Paul.
    For those of your interested in what I'm involved in, I have now posted an article, Buffalo Hunting in Australia, in the Hunting in Australia forum.
    Hardly a literary scholarship piece, it may none-the-less provide an insight for those that have not yet ventured "down-under" and hunted our buff.
    I hope somebody gets something out of it.

    Best regards to all.
