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.
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.
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.
