Australia is a land I love; full of beauty, mystery and remote places that makes hunting there very special. The animals in the Land Down Under are unique, and there’s a reason I keep going back to this great place.
But on this, my 5th trip to Oz, I was joined by some good friends from Trijicon. For Tim Adams, Greg Findlay and Trey Lloyd, it was their first time to hunt Australia, making my time there even more special.
Before the Trijicon crew arrived, I started the hunt, chasing scrub bulls a few hours out of Brisbane. Scrub bulls are Australia’s most dangerous big game animal, and are wild cattle that have lived their lives in the Outback, escaping the muster. Old bulls are big, aggressive and tough. During the breeding season they leave the remote Outback to find receptive cows, just like elk do. They tear up fences, mess up bloodlines of prime breeding stock and even kill prized breeding bulls–that’s why ranchers want them gone.
