For a unique hunt, you should try Australia banteng hunting
Banteng have haunted the forests of Australia’s Cobourg Peninsula since 1848.
This Premier Outfitter offers two, five day Australia banteng hunting packages:
Cobourg Peninsula banteng hunting; and Mary River banteng hunting.
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!”
