Damn things are just as ugly 'Down Under' as they are here.

Go well with hickory smoke though.

Hi there,

1.Have always enjoyed hunting forums, I was watching YouTube and seen a lot of videos from guys in Texas, so just googled Texas hunting forums and here I am.

2. Seems fairly straight forward to post pics, just followed my nose.

3. Australia varies greatly, I’m in North Queensland. Well away from the big cities, Brisbane the capital city of Queensland is over 800 miles away from where I live. I haven’t been to Texas so can’t really compare the two. Most of our industry is either mining or cattle. Our cattle stations (ranches) mostly are 100000 acres plus, mainly gather cattle on motorbikes and helicopters.
I hunt with a team of 1-4 dogs. I don’t have bay dogs and catch dogs. Most people I have hunted with are the same in that we only have dogs that catch. My style of hunting is Ute finding, I drive the large cattle stations around swamps and creeks, the dogs stand in the back of the Ute wind scenting and jump off when they scent pigs. I mainly like to hunt at night, mainly because it’s not as hot for the dogs.

Do y'all have access to thermals and suppressors?

Can you carry pistols?

Haha thanks mate.

Our gun laws make it very hard to get the correct licences that allow us to have silencers or semi-automatic weapons. Even to get a pistol licence is very difficult. Unfortunately it’s only getting worse in that regard.

Thermals seem to be getting popular now, I don’t have one yet, I prefer to rely on the dogs finding the pigs wind scenting. I rarely shoot, I carry a rifle just to shoot dingoes/wild dogs whenever I come across one.

Kangaroos are very common where I am, I see 10-15 everyday driving to work. On the open downs country to the west of where I am they can be in plague numbers. Not uncommon to see mobs of over 100. They are real pests in drought, competing with cattle for any grass.

Yeah I’ve heard they try promote fosters as the Australian beer, I honestly don’t know anyone who drinks it.

Kangaroos can be hunted. You have to apply to get tags through the wildlife management harvesting department. They are sold to processing plants and sold as game meat to overseas markets. There is a small market in Australia for kangaroo meat, but it’s not something I prefer to eat.
