was listening to a discussion of the 'class of 2016' this morning , interesting what they do not know , have never heard of , grew up with/know nothing about , and what they take for granted because of it , got little to no historic perspective at all as its no longer taught in schools

I wish I Had some pics to post, but my Buff hunting days were over 30 years back. That was before the BTEC programme, which the short sighted NT, government used to decimate the Buffalo herds. I used to hint out at A place called Whitestone,around Corroboree ( on the Mary river) and behind Lake bennet downs near the Adelaide river. I used a couple of Enfields, an M17 in 30.06, and my much lamented P14 303, plus a jungle carbine, No4 rifle etc. I was only ever a meat hunter, and did not ever bother with horns, although some people used to bag a bull and leave the carcass to rot.

Got my fair share of wild pigs as well, plus lots of feral cats, and managed to knock down brumbies on occasion, but always felt a little unsettled at shooting a horse. Had my best hunting ever, in the top end, so your photos bought back some instant memories. I fell from grace pretty bad by shooting a Croc one time, but have little regrets over that one; I've always considered myself the endangered species on that occasion. I'll never go back up there again, as I prefer to remember it it the was....cheers

Those are some great pics and show a very successful day out.
I was in Au from 74 till 79 then 81 till 87 but never got to hunt buff and regret it to this day. I have a nice 400 Lee Speed  (near full length 405 Win) that would be just the ticket for them.
