The weekend adventure that still has me on a natural high! A sow taken near the Daly River, by wading into a safe swamp. An 80lb Silvertip, with a STOS broadhead on Douglas Fir did the the trick.

Those goats look like a lot of fun to hunt!! They are nice looking also especially those horns. I have a couple of goats here on my place but they don't look like that. What kind of goats are they? Mine are here to keep the grass short! Great photos Ben.

Hi Mark, the goats are a ragtag mixture of breeds. They were initially brought to the Outback by merchants following goldrushes. The land and climate suited them well, and they went feral and bred-up into quite a devestating environmental problem.

Here's a photo of a young brumby I stalked and took the day before I got the pig. The trophy photo isn't that great, so I'll just share the live version, and a picture of me near where the brumby crashed.

We evaluated this swamp (and the other one) pretty carefully. Based on all the wildlife out in it, the shallow depth, the distance from the river, the lack of deep, dark parts, the lack of reeds, and the lack of tracks or slides, we decided there was very little chance of a lizard being there.

No leaches up here. Well, I haven't found any yet. I think the crocodiles and king browns eat them all!
