    I bump into Aaron and his clients now-and-then on the track behind my house. Good country. Magnificent artwork.

    Do you have a problem in that buff may carry tuberculosis or brucellosis?
    I’m a bit hesitant about eating a buff even the backstraps.
    What’s your experience?

    You’re be okay especially in August when the so called cool season is on.
    Oz snakes are harmless! How convincing is that?

    G’day Dr Ray, no problem whatsoever. I love it!

    The only beast the Aboriginal guys thought may have TB was a cleanskin red cow I shot with the .22-250 and it broke their hearts to walk away from it.

    A Ranger told me that they cull around 3000 a year out of Maningrida and of those (buffalo) only three or four carry TB.

    The TB cull caused a rift and really hurt folks, and as I understand it it was to appease the US Government to open-up the cattle trade to them.

    Aside from a drug problem, the original Crocodile Dundee really went off the rails following income loss from the cull - and that’s how he wound-up dead in a shoot-out with Police, in which he murdered an Officer who was a family man.

    A mate of mine, an old guy, joined-in the cull near where I live, and shot a grand old bull with an SKS. Actually, this mate of mine once met a man out at Mount Catt who introduced himself with, “Hello, I’m Adolf Hitler.” I never met Hitler, but I know his family (who don’t carry that name). Of the same vintage, there was also a Winston Churchill down in the Simpson.

    Bush yarns.

    It’s my fifth year saying that word, and I still need some refinement!

    I hate snakes. I have seen two venomous snakes in my life. Zero desire to see more and your salesmanship definitely fell short for this guy.

    No they are fairly harmless. They don't have big fangs so hardly hurt at all when they bite:whistle:

    G'day Ben,
    Some great country you live in. Love the Brogals, magnificent birds. Like the way yu cant see them a couple of hundred feet up on a bright sunny day without polorised sunglasses.

    When a red-bellied black nipped me it hurt like blazes straight away.
