Headed out bush again with a mate from down south to try his luck and new rifle he built.  I'd say the day was a success with 6 Buff down for the day.  More pics will follow.

LOL the chainsaw was mainly for removing the horns but I cut along the brisket and the spine for the boys as they normally use an axe and they wanted to see if the saw would be quicker ;-) They were impressed LOL.  The Mauser is my mates 450ASS (Adrian and Shayne Styles), he's Adrian BTW.  I used my 2 SMLE's on the day the 45-70 and the 303, both took buff no worries at all.

LOL shorts and T-Shirt is ok here in the dry season, not a good idea in the wet.  Like everything else in the NT the Mossies are the jumbo sized!  The long shirt my mate wore was an effort to not get sun burnt (he live in a much cooler climate down in NSW).

i noted the shorts as well - here they would be bled out by the skeeters and tics before they found their prey ,
 
nice shooting , hope all that meat went to the hungry

You bet it did!   Including me!  Buffalo Curry is one of my wife's favourites I made when we got home LOL.  Plenty of Ticks in Oz mate we must just be made from sterner stuff! ;-)

Ticks where I am carry all kinds of nasty and crippling diseases. I wear long pants with gaiters to keep the !)@##%!) things on the outside so I can pull them off. It's not unusual for me to pull a dozen or more off in early spring or later fall. I stop and check every few minutes just to get rid of them.

Yes, Lyme disease is no fun at all. I don't know if they have it in Oz at this time though.

I have to ask.
What's the story with the colt tied to the truck in the background? Appetizer for the Buff main course?Confused

We get a tick here called a pepper tick. It is the size of ground black pepper. When these things get inside your trousers you have to boil the clothes to ensure they are dead as they can stay dormant until you wear your favourite hunting gear the next season only to ge bitten again.
Tick bite fever (Rickettsia) is horrible. Had it twice. Give me a hangover any day compared to the headache from tick bite fever.
Nice buff by the way. Like the idea of the chainsaw.
Not a complete idiot. Still missing a few parts.

When I went pig hunting, the pigs are covered in fleas and ticks. Yuck.
I was recently watching a National Geographic on the appalachian trail, showed those ticks clumped on stalks an warned of the Lyme disease. Gives one the shivers.
