Hay fellas,
yah got onto a block that has not been mustered for 20years, lots of beasts on it, as well as a mob that wander onto one of my propertys form out the forestery reasonably frequently.

have only really got back into shooting in the past 4 weeks i suppose, so once im proficent enough i'll be heading out chaseing them myself.

got good numbers of brumbys as well,so another future target.
Kind Regards, Brett

gday there, i got this brute yesterday while out boar hunting. i had just got a boar in one of my favourite swamps. after the photo session and removing the jaw, i continued on hunting. about 250m from where i got the boar i saw this guy feeding all by himself.(a major advantage) anyway he was feeding right behind a forky paperbark tree which i used to my advantage. using the tree as cover i quickly got to 10m. but he sensed something was amiss and trotted out from behind the tree and stopped to see what i was. at about 17-18m he stood broadside looking at me. i picked a spot, drew and released. i can still see the arch of the arrow flight! the arrow buried itself to the feathers right where i was looking. he took of, but i knew he was a dead bull running. he piled up about 200m away. on inspection the b/head exited! b/head used was an aussie made blackstump 2 blader. the amount of blood was phenomenal. he's not the biggest bull by any means, but i'm sure proud, as it's my 1st bull with trad gear.  -

Clint,
sensational trophy mate!

i'm currently shooting a #55 @ 28 Internature Viper Delux Longbow, pulling to 29.5" draw so around #60 i suppose.

hunting arras are similer weight to yours ,so basically i'm now feeling secure with the things after your take.
Kind Regards, Brett

Clint, very nice! A great trophy, and a hog to boot. What a great day afield.

Al, I also wanted to tell you thanks for the article in the recent TBM. Struck a chord with me as I have three boys that need time with dad and attention too! Looking forward to seeing more material from you....and Ben.

Bulla Bulla Ryan!

Thanks mate for the kind words. That was my 3rd article in TBM and I plan to submit more whenever TBM wants overseas items. Keep an eye out.
