It certainly is 'Rushy'. Looking at some of these photo's and talking to Julie who is keen to go back again to the Northern Territory I have been thinking.

Time we did it again??? GA said he is keen so I am on the case now.

The buffalo antlers in the background are a set that I brought back from the Top End and are impressive only for their length. They were from a cow so they were not heavy but had a great spread.Imagepread.

223 is big enough if you are up a substantial tree maybe. I have shot a couple of wild cattle with mine, both cows. One of these had its nose up and the 223 skidded off the heavy bone above the line between its two eyes. My next shot hit it behind the ear as it went past and Komati-ed it stone dead.

The TOP END did have plenty of Buff, Bulls, Banteng, Deer, Camels, Donkeys, Wild horses and pigs. In what quantities these animals are still present I don't know but I intend to find out.
