My name is Ben.
Growing up in a rural town in eastern Australia, I have been hunting small game all my life. Some for pest control and others for the table.
In my 20's I moved on to the annual 'Out West Trip' which is part of most Australian hunters progression into the bigger stuff, with goats and pig the main targets.
About 5 years ago, I found myself wanting a new challenge... deer stalking became my passion. While being relatively new to the sport, I have had a lot of fun, slowly gaining knowledge and experience as I go. I have had success with Fallow, Reds and the might Sambar. Some for meat and others for their trophy qualities (I'm a big believer in the idea of Let Them Go, Let Them Grow), plus taken a lot of photos along the way.
Between pest control and stalking I have a few different calibers I hunt with, depending on the game and environment.
