    Hello Guys,

    after 2 safaris in South Africa in summer 2013 and 2014 with Marie my ladyhunteress and my son, this summer, we change destination and the 2 of us head to the Australia Top End, for 3 weeks of vacation around Darwin and uluru, including a 5 day hunt of wild boars, and maybe a water buffalo for me. We will also fish during the hot hours of the day. We will be using the rifles of Darryl Bell, our Australian outfitter http://www.bighornsafari.com.au/, in 308 win or 270 win, and a Blaser R93 375 HH for the water buffalo.

    We will keep you posted. Here is the first video of the planning (13 seconds):



    Hervé and Marie

    We are 2 months and 20 days before the trip. Physical training has begun. 2h30 walk with binocular around the neck, primos tripod+video head+camcorder on one hand and the 4stablestick mountain swing shooting stick on the other hand, hat and safari clothing. And wonderful rhododendron trees along the way.

    11 km walking training last sunday, with nearly all the hunting gear (except I had forgotten my binoculars).

    Here is what we met:

    I managed to do some adjustments in the trouser belt, backpack belt, and PAST belt, thanks to this training!

    As Mickael Jackson says in"This is it!": "This is why we do rehearsal"

    Hi guys, we are in Australia since a few days. This is the travel part before the safari part. This NT part of Kakadu national park is a paradise for wildlife lover like us. Here are some pictures:
