Hi All

Graeme from Far North Qld here. I've been hunting for 30 odd years and have just started getting my wife and 2 boys involved. We hunt ferals locally (pigs, brumby's, dingoes and scrub bulls), travel to Charters Towers chasing Chital regularly and I love trophy hunting. Have taken most species of deer here in OZ but still haven't caught up with a Fallow yet. Hunted in Africa in 1997 for plains game.

Also into fine firearms - customs and doubles.

Calibres range from .22 to .470 NE.

Cheers. :rolleyes:

Hi all

English backpacker in Sydney but heading up east coast to Byron Bay and poss as far as Cairns shortly i.e. just after xmas. Real new to the whole hunting thing having been a city boy most of my life. Only done spotlighting for possums and rabbits in NZ, but I'm a good shot. Believe in hunting from a natural perspective

Would love to share a hunting experience with someone willing to take me out. Willing to share costs etc of course.

Can bring camping equipment etc and great stories from my travels through sailing in pacific.

Trying to convince my friend to come also, think he'll love it.

If not, Can you recommend good spots to hunt?

Thanks so much

James
