offer the best Buffalo hunting for "BIG" trophy Buffalo in Australia
These Buffalo are much bigger in body size than African Buffalo, tougher
than their African cousins and are notoriously difficult to kill, even
with the largest big game calibre rifles.
Our new Buffalo hunting area is very remote. There are no roads into
the area for most of the year. There are no people, no fences, no cattle
or any commercial enterprises in the area. Only us…and the Buffalo.
Our current Buffalo hunting area offers our clients the best quality
Buffalo hunting opportunity, that we have had in Australia for the past
This area is full of big bulls, dying of old age with huge horns and
large bulky bodies. There has been no commercial harvesting or government-sponsored
eradication in this area.
The best time to hunt Buffalo is usually during the months of June,
July and August. These are the coolest, normally dry winter months.
Depending on how long the wet season (pouring rains, etc.) lasts, hunting
can be very good from early May and excellent hunting can be had through
the hot dry months of September and October. However, we recommend the
coolest dry winter months, June, July and August for the most comfortable
In our new remote area, at the end of each dry season we park several
4WD Toyota hunting cars in strategic locations. Following the wet season
we are able to access these Toyotas by first driving from our camp to
each local waterway, billabong or lake, and then by boating across the
water ways to the waiting Toyotas.
We conduct our Buffalo hunts by driving in our especially equipped hunting
4WD Toyotas, short distances along the edges of the waterways and glassing
the grazing Buffalo herds directly from the Toyotas. When a prospective
trophy bull is located, we commence the stalk on foot.
Buffalo bulls are tough. We recommend that our hunters use a minimum
of scoped 375 H&H Magnum with premium brand soft point ammunition.
vast experience we have found that the most suitable calibres for
hunting these big Buffalo are the 338 Win Mag (this is our minimum recommended
suitable calibre) 375 H&H, 416 Remington, 458 Win Mag and 9.3 X 64 utilising
Bigger is definitely better, but we recommend that you bring the heaviest
calibre, scope-mounted rifle, using only the heaviest bullets for that
rifle, which you can shoot comfortably and accurately.
average daytime temperature in the Buffalo hunting area is 23°C to 27°C
during the cool winter months, with nighttime temperatures dropping
to 17°C to 23°C.
During May it is a little hotter, but after August the temperatures
soar up to 38°C on a hot day…Winter months are better for hunting.
Being situated in the tropics and close to the coast, we get occasional
rain showers, however these showers do not normally effect the hunting
also strongly recommend that our hunters arm themselves with insect
repellent, long sleeve shirts and trousers, as mosquitoes are active
early in the morning and as the sun sets in the afternoon.
