Water Buffalo

Writer and hunter Peter Ryan: " I found this among my father's things, with an inscription in his handwriting. It was published in 'Top End Safari' by the talented Australian writer, Vic McCristal. The man is Burge Brown of Darwin River, Northern Territory. The bull has already taken one hit but is coming on again, horns down as he closes. He means business. The image was taken at the moment when the second shot was fired. The rifle won't be the expensive kind that people take hunting now. It's almost certainly the same one I learned to shoot with - just a cut down SMLE .303 - and hunting apparel has come a long way since the sixties. Courage, on the other hand, hasn't changed a bit. ~
