In any form of hunting, you can’t give up. Blown stalks, bad winds and other circumstances can’t sidetrack your determination. You may have to hunt longer days, but as the Bowhunt Downunder crew proves, persistence pays off.

“Hunting the swamps and creeks of Northern Australia is on the to do list of most Aussie hunters, as Cape York in far north Queensland holds one of Australia’s largest populations of wild pigs. This episode is the conclusion to a hunt that took place in October at the end of the dry season or the build up to the wet or monsoon season. Searching for boars in there beds during the heat of the day is one of the ways we like to hunt them at this time of year. Generally they aren’t to far away from the remaining water, and bedded in the coolest places they can find trying to escape the extreme heat.

I had been hunting this place for years but in recent times this particular property had a permanent safari operation working it, and it had been hunted hard for the last few months by plenty of different hunters. Being a regular hunter and doing a couple trips a season into this part of Australia over the years, I’d had my fair share of hunts, some good, some not so good, as weather plays huge roll if your trying to beat the on coming wet season. Evening storms can temporarily relieve a little bit of the humidity and make things quiet under foot but too much rain can scatter the hogs as well. This trip it wasn’t the weather but more the hunting pressure that made the remaining boars pretty scarce and hard to find at times, and when it’s like this you have to be prepared to put in the hard yards and push on a little further to get results. The high temps and humidity can be physically demanding at times, add in an inconsistent breeze to the few chances you get and it becomes just as mentally challenging as well.

Minimal result for maximum effort can take its toll in these extreme conditions but the drive needed to succeed installed in a lot of hunters can make all the difference.” – Bowhunt Downunder

This film harnesses the essence of what our public lands mean to us. Having the ability to be free and have a space to practice that freedom we feel is a fundamental right of all people. Without the access for everyone to enjoy our public lands, our right of freedom would be indirectly cutoff.
