Subscriber Robert Brekke, Jr., (Report ID 8775
) hunted in the Northern Territory of Australia
near Numbulwar Area (on the coast east of Darwin) this past August with Southern Safaris Australia
(phone from the US 011-61-3-9379-8125). Owner Paul Truccolo was his personal guide. Brekke booked his hunt though L. David Keith, Gray Ghost African Hunting Safaris
(615-860-4333). Both outfitter and booking agent are new names to us, but Brekke recommends them highly.
On this hunt, Brekke reports seeing 50 to 100 buffalo each day while hunting safari-style from vehicles and stalking on foot when a target animal was spotted. Brekke took five bulls on a cull hunt. He added on a trophy bull when a 100-incher presented itself as "a target of opportunity" on the first day of hunting. His partner took a 102-inch trophy on the last day. "Never thought I would see so many buffalo of trophy caliber," he tells us.
