A trip through the Gibson where I sunk my first "ship of the desert" with bow-and-arrow:

 -

My first big boar, just a dozen kilometres down the river from home in Katherine:

 -

A nice little Daly River sow:

 -

The bow that took each of these animals is a Black Widow PLX "Bocote", 78#@29". The arrows used are Carbon Express Heritage 350s, wearing Magnus II 2-bladers, for a total weight of 704 grains.

Last Sunday I shot this brumby mare; I'm not sure how this'll go here, with cultural differences and all, but these animals are just another highly-destructive introduced feral animal, damaging the environment and cattle station infrastructure...anyway, you can always think of it as a stripeless zebra!

 -

Another couple of swine down...

Hi Jason,

Nope, we don't eat the ferals we kill usually, with the exception of deer (which I haven't had much to do with) and young goats for the pot. We do occasionally take a bit of meat of scrub cattle and buffalo, but only the younger ones. The other carcasses become bait for pigs.

Cheers,

Ben

Very nice, its a bit odd to me seeing someone shooting a horse as a game animal, atleast coming from America. Our American Mustangs are seen as a sign of freedom and strength to most. And if I'm correct I think that they are protected unless the government kills them.
