Recently got back from a business/holiday trip to Australia. Luckily, I managed to organise a few days hunting with a good friend who's parents own a property in the middle of nowhere.
This property is in very rural NSW and although only 25miles from the tar road, it takes almost 1.5 hrs to do this last section. The farm has a small hut which houses a fireplace, basin, sleeping area and food storage area. No electricity, running water or mobile signal.
We climbed the hills looking for goats and concentrated on the lower areas for pigs. There are a few fallow in the area but we didn't see any.
The goats were pretty easy to find and we managed to cull a few of them. The goats breed all year round and are a pest so the population needs to be managed. Over the 4 days i managed to get 5 goats and my mate another 5. My 5 goats were shot with a .223 which performed well with winchester ammo. We found a lot of signs of pig activity but didnt see any. Over the 4 days i must have seen several hundred kangaroos but we didnt shoot any.
Here are a few photos:
