Second Buffalo
« on: May 07, 2019, 07:49:49 AM »
Hey Everyone,

I scored an invite from a mate to head out with him last weekend to Arhnem Land. This part of the country is owned by the Traditional Owners, and access is limited.
I had a few opportunites at mature bulls, but was busted twice drawing my bow at under 20 yards. I managed to take this young bull, and we butchered him and gave him to the community to be shared.
Cheers,
Memo

Dang nice Australian Buffalo Steven.  If that's a young one, I'd most like soil myself if an old one came toward me at 20 yards.  Those things are HUGE!  Congrats Mate!   :clapper:

Thanks fellas,
ESP/OzyClint gear was Toelke Whip #65 and Goldtip Traditionals 75/95 with 100gn brass insert and 175gn Grizzly/125gn steel adapter for 770gn total arrow weight. would consider this poundage minimum, but feel that a 700gn arrow would be fine.
Sticknstring/Jrod/KennyM Buffalo is similar to beef, tastier but tougher.
