For a unique hunt, you should try Australia banteng hunting.
Banteng have haunted the forests of Australia’s Cobourg Peninsula since 1848.
Weighing around 1,100 pounds, a mature Banteng is very handsome. This exotic animal is extremely elusive and alert, and is a supreme challenge to the hunter.
It is very rare, listed as endangered species in its native Indonesia. Only three outfitters are licensed to legally hunt this prized species in Australia.
Banteng live in the dense forest areas of the Cobourg Peninsula. Australia has the worlds’ only huntable population of Banteng. What an amazing animal!”
This Premier Australian Outfitter offers two, five day Australia banteng hunting packages:
The best time to hunt Banteng is from May until September. Generally Australia banteng hunting will be spot and stalk, however for bow hunters, or any hunter wishing to, there are tree stands and ground blind hunting available.
