HaveAGo

Hunt Description

We have personally conducting hunts for 34 years for buffalo with Jim as your Ph. since a knee replacement Jim doesn’t do the guiding himself as his first concern is always the safety of the hunter and he doesn’t consider himself as agile as he needs be hunting these dangerous old boys. We currently work with other professional outfitters  conducting hunts in private areas north east and south of Darwin, these wild areas are hundreds of miles in areas and have large buffalo lots of wild boars. Scrub bulls donkeys and trophy boars are available, with Banteng on the northern region. We access further areas to hunt Banteng. Wild boar are available on all areas best at the later times of the year when it is drier.  

The flood plain regions are  pristine hunting regions of 100000 acres with ocean frontage. Land transfers are included in the rate ,but the floodplains region situated 120 miles east of Darwin is an optional stunning  20 mins by light aircraft or helicopter. It is a photographers paradise with stunning scenery and animals such as crocodiles, kangaroo, wallaby, dingo, goanna and countless wetland and forest birds.

There are herds of buffalo and the millions of types of wild birds that flock on the flood plains will amaze you. In all areas you will see abundant game daily and have plenty of opportunity to take superb trophies. 

All hunts depart from Darwin .by 4wd , planes and helicopters can be hired at an extra rate No hidden extras in prices so you don’t get those sometimes unexpected  expensive  add ons, which add up.

Hunting Season: The best hunting times are between Late May to October. The very best times being in the middle of this time in the drier winter months and the optimum hunting time for pigs is at the end of season when it is drier. you can hunt outside these times but helicopter may needed to access wet isolated regions depending if it is a late or early “wet season”.

How we huntThe main scouting for the herds of buffalo is done by 4wd. And then followed up on foot for closer inspections. The buffalo are abundant in our hunting area. We often see many grazing on the flood plains surrounded by thousands of wild geese and other abundant bird life and mobs of feral pigs. There are also lots of crocodiles to be seen as they bask on the sides of billabongs and swamps. Freshwater fishing is also available on the hunts for an extra fee. The native Barramundi an exciting fish to catch and delicious to eat.

Trophy Size

 Over the 34 years we have been hunting buffalo we have taken over 300 buffalo and haven’t  taken any buffalo under 90 sci points. Our trophies average on the whole 100 sci points. These 2000 lb animals make a magnificent trophy and they have a number of different horn shapes from curves to sweepers. We have also hunted white buffalo from time to time over the years but these are particularly uncommon.

We also use another concession in a close area to where we hunt the buffalo to hunt banteng . These exotic animals are only available to hunt in Australia no where else in the world. Crocodile trapping is also optional extra on the hunts.
