Scrub Bulls

Hunting Method | Equipment | Weather Conditions | Accommodation and Facilities

Hunt Australia - Feral Cattle HuntingThere are feral cattle spread throughout many of the remote outback regions of Northern Territory. These cattle are the ancestors of the original cattle introductions. They live and die unchallenged in their wild habitat.

Scrub Bulls are exciting to hunt and they are an interesting trophy.

Mature bulls are huge, dangerous and tough to kill. They provide an exciting challenge to those hunters to like to pursue a dangerous adversary.

Hunting Method
We hunt feral cattle in the riverine forests and in remote regions of some of the vast outback cattle stations. We hunt them by cruising the outback tracks in modified Toyota 4WD hunting Landcruisers and undertake the final stalk on foot.

Equipment
When encountered, we recommend the biggest caliber with the heaviest weight premium bullets that you can shoot comfortably.

Only serious big game hunters should hunt these cattle and only with a reliable experienced back up. Should serious difficulties occur, and they often do when the shooting starts, only experienced big game hunters with experienced guide backing are safe.

Footwear should be sneakers or lightweight walking boots. A wide brim hat, cotton camo clothing and good binoculars would complete your outfit.

Weather Conditions
The best hunting is in the dry season when the weather is cool and dry, from April until October.

You will need a warm jacket for early morning and late evening hunts and dark green cotton camo clothing with long trousers and long sleeved shirts for the best protection.

The weather in the middle of each day will be warm to hot, so we mostly do what the cattle do, and that is to lie up in the cool of heavy cover during the heat of the day.

Accommodation and Facilities Available
Scrub Bulls are hunted from a variety of locations. Some camps are remote tent camps with full facilities however at least one camp consists of cabins with separate bunkhouse kitchen. All of these camps are very comfortable with unlimited hot water showers, clean beds, refrigeration, electricity etc.
