Published in Bowhunting Downunder Magazine September 2018.

It was Ironbarks opening week in 2018. A couple Australian clients had grabbed a last minute cancellation hunt only a few weeks before hand. Nick Peterson and his friend Ben arrived on schedule at the airport where I met them and their hunt would start. The first day an a half yielded a couple stalks on shooter bulls that didn’t pan out. On the morning of day 2  we found a bull I had been after for a couple years, while sizing him up and deciding what our next move on the small group of buff would be the mob quickly approached us unaware that we were there. With good cover concealing our movements and wind in our favour the giant bull walked right into our laps offering Nick a great 22 yard shot that he made no mistake on!  With the history I had with this bull I knew he was something special. Upon recovering him I was in complete disbelief at the sheer size of him, I believed he would beat the current Australian record and the bull went on to do so a few months later after being officially scored by Trophy Takers of Australia. Nick Peterson is now the holder of Australias largest water buffalo taken with Archery equiptment! The rest of the week proved to be an outstanding week with Ben harvesting 2 buffalo with 2 shots a 90 inch bull and a 103 inch bull. Both guys also went on to take a representative boar each. It was truly a week that Ironbark Outfitters will never forget!
