Great bull, congrats to the hunter!
That is an exceptional Trophy Asiatic bull.
Congrats to the hunter and the team.
Now that is a great buffalo. Congratulations. How about posting the hunt details??
WOW! Congrats to the hunter and thanks for sharing!
I emailed my Buddy about the details. Only memory that I have was the trouble getting the trophy back to the USA.
John sent 2 brief emails:
Territory Buffalo Safaris. Brenton Hurt
5 day hunt. Fly into Sydney, then North to Northeast tip of Australia, then Bonanza for about 150 miles into bush. Hunt from 4 wheel drive vehicles or 4 wheelers. Accommodations remote, but entirely adequate. Good hunt. Lots of buffalo. Would see 50 bulls a day.
That is truely a great buffalo. Congrats
Awesome Bull. Forrest
That must have been some time ago as I believe that Brenton has not guided for quite some time.
Interestingly, I know Brenton's old area reasonably well, being only a couple of hundred "clicks" up the road from where I also operated for some time, on the East Coast of Arnhemland.
A good friend of mine now has the access rights to this same area.
Now, or even way back then, bulls of this calibre were not exactly common.
@TOBY458 is this the area you went to?
Not sure. I flew into Darwin, then maybe 2 hours east via truck to camp. It was called Carmor Plains. The outfit was called Australia Wide Safaris. However I spoke with Matt Kelman recently, and they are closing down his operation and selling the property.

This is my best bull out of three taken on my trip.
John was very happy with his buffalo. I'm sure he knew that it was a nice one.
The picture is dated July 2010.
