Banteng is the best kept secret of the South Pacific
Australia is the only place you can harvest these magnificent Bovines. Highly underrated, most hunter That come to Australia to harvest the Banteng as a secondary species, but after harvesting both their Buffalo and Banteng come away with a new respect for his beautiful creature.
Since they were released in the 1840s the Banteng did not travel far from their point of origin and the original free range heard remains confined to the Cobourg/Murgenella Region. GOE’s concession borders the Garig National Park(Formerly Cobourg) and has a topography that suits the Banteng much better than the national park. The animals in this area have access to much better food year round than the animals next door in the Park, because of this they grow out to their full potential.
Over the past few years GOE has harvested many top ten animals and currently has the #1 Riffle bull, #2 Bow and Arrow and the new Pending #1 overall taken with a Bow, and we still haven’t harvest he biggest bulls we have seen!
The Banteng is much more elusive than the buffalo, usually found feeding in the burnt light savannah country in the region. Banteng are very alert and not usually seen from the vehicle so most animals are spotted on foot. The typical day starts out early walking feeding areas looking for spore. During the heat of the day Banteng usually retreat to the thick bush to bed, but as the afternoon cools they make there way o water and usually less alert and easier to approach. Banteng populations in GOE’s xclusive concession are great and clients ill see many shoot able bulls each day of the 6 day hunt.
