Goat Hunting

Hunting Method | Equipment | Weather Conditions | Accommodation and Facilities

Hunt Australia Safaris - Goat HuntingThe biggest trophy Goats available in Australia today are found on North Golbourn Island, which is 1.5 hour's flight east of Darwin.

This hunt is normally taken in conjunction with our Buffalo hunt. However, they can be taken by serious Goat hunters wanting to take a really huge set of Goat horns home.

 

 

Hunting Method
We land right on the island and hunt directly from the aircraft. The island is generally flat and sandy. There are simply thousands of Goats on the island. There is a Suziki 4WD on the island.

The hunting is by driving until we locate the goat herds. After we spot the goats, we glass them to assess trophy potential and make a final stalk on foot. After shooting a big trophy we then drive back to the aircraft carrying our trophy with us.

Equipment
Hunt Australia Safaris - Goat HuntingSuitable rifles are scope sighted 308W, 270W or 30-06. A 300 Magnum or 7MM Magnum are the maximum caliber suitable for these tough but light framed goats. Medium weight soft point ammunition is the best medicine for these tough island dwellers.

Soft soled walking shoes and lightweight camouflage cotton clothing are most suitable. Good binoculars are essential.

Weather Conditions
The weather on North Golbourn Island is warm to hot, but the cooling sea breezes blowing directly from the Arafura Sea make the hunting a pleasurable experience.
