An amazing landscape of the true beauty and diversity exists in a little-known corner of South Eastern Arnhem Land. It is a vast area of over 2 million acres of wild bush. Home of some of the largest wild bovines in Australia.
This is as good as remote area hunting gets and its becoming a rarity in today’s ever progressive and developed world. It is a piece of wild paradise where buffalo, ox and other wild animals exist in harmony in an area the size of some small countries. Best of all it is devoid of mankind except for the native aboriginal Custodians. Hunters know the value in exploring and hunting such a vast and wild terrain. An average of 20 hunters per year over the last 30 years have enjoyed the Walker river experience. There is nothing quite like hunting alone in a region that has no physical boundaries. Being alone in the bush, miles from any roads or tracks, in the pursuit of a big bull buffalo has no parallel in the hunting world.
There is nothing quite like finding fresh tracks that spread greater than two 375 rounds side by side, knowing that at the end of these tracks there is a one ton buffalo. There is just no feeling like this. This is on the buffalos terms. It is real. It is a fair chase and it will test you.
I live this every day of my season and I see the excitement and tension that passes through every hunter at the moment of engagement. It is the reason we hunt, aside from the lifelong memories it creates.
I would like to acknowledge the aboriginal custodians who own this land that I hunt and have called home most of my professional life. For without their support and the support of you the hunter this area would not be as wild and beautiful as it is today.
