I met Aaron Corbett at DSC Convention a couple of years ago and became quite interested in making a trip to OZ to shoot a buffalo and see the NT. We spoke at the show several times and I left without booking a hunt because I had a trip to the Limpopo booked for August already. Aaron called me during the SCI show and threw an offer that was to enticing to pass up, four buffalo! I knew my Dad has wanted to go see OZ his whole life and this was a perfect opportunity to get him there. I asked Aaron if he would allow me to book the hunt for 2018 and he said no worries! I called up Pops and told him the good news that we were going to The NT hunting buffalo and of course he bitched that he didn’t want to spend the money and the flight was to long. So I had to resort to calling Mom to make him go. Miraculously he saw the error of his ways and decided to come along, he really was excited once he knew we were going. Fast forward to DSC 18: After a wonderful evening with the AH crowd at our annual supper, I was excited to get to the show and finish confirmation with Aaron. I got my dates set for August 1-7 and was quite happy to escape two weeks of the bloody miserable Houston humidity once again. So @ActionBob and @Royal27 were cruising the show with me and Bob asked about the hunt, I explained my package and down we went to see if Aaron would match my deal for Bob. He did and I was really excited that Bob and Carol would be joining us on the trip. I contacted several of our AH members and picked their brains on Buff hunting the NT, My fear of damn snakes and of course bringing firearms into OZ. All of these guys were a great help, even Dr.Ray posting snake pictures was fun! The guys gave me great advice on where to store our rifles while in country and were most helpful. I made calls to the Sydney Police about firearms as I would have long lay overs both directions along with airline changes. This is where the idea of a camp gun got its appeal. Over the course of two weeks I spoke to three different people at the Sydney Police, two said I needed a gun permit for down in Sydney along with my NT license and another said I did not need one! I had visions of my 470 getting torch cut and thrown in a pile of scrap iron and changed direction. Camp gun it is. Now after this trip I honestly believe I was worried needlessly and wish I had brought my rifle. I would go ahead and get both permits just to be safe as I still got contradicting answers from the many people I asked along the way. Yeah, I’m getting to the hunting part shortly!
