Hunt Arnhemland's series of hunting concessions allow us to offer a unique range of hunts with trophy animals that include Buffalo, Banteng, Sambar Deer, Wild Boar and Wild Goat. We also offer spectacular fishing opportunities in north-west Arnhemland and at Bulman.
| Areas hunted are remote, extensive, and at times hunter and guide can be the sole occupants of a 1000 square kilometre wilderness area. Access to the hunt concessions is by light aircraft from Darwin and thereafter by four wheel drive vehicles, specially modified and adapted to the rugged conditions.

Comfortable and practical permanent base camps are strategically located in the hunting areas at both north-west and south-central Arnhemland. Each is well appointed and offers twin-share, tented accommodation, toilet blocks and shower units. Meals are hearty and nourishing, and evening meals include a limited range of wines and beers. Power is provided on-site by 240 volt generators. Special dietary needs can be catered for provided notice is given.

Seasonal factors can affect hunt conditions, in particular access to some of the preferred Buffalo country. The hunt concessions are all located between 11 and 13 degrees south of the equator and a distinctive monsoonal season delivers frequent and intense tropical downpours between December and April, making vehicle access treacherous. Buffalo are best hunted between May and November, while Sambar Deer, Banteng and Wild Boar make suitable trophy hunting throughout the year.
Peter Davidson, who heads our experienced team of hunting guides, was the 1999 SCI South Pacific/Australasian Guide of the Year, and has conducted many highly successful hunts at our extensive concessions in Australia's Top End. Peter (seen on the right with a Sambar Deer taken at Cobourg Peninsula) has also worked as a professional hunting guide in Benin, Africa.

Hunts using handguns can be arranged (special permit required). Australian gun laws ban the importation of automatic and semi-automatic firearms into the country. We have a range of firearms available for hire, including shotguns, for the hunter who does not wish to go to the trouble of importing his or her own. We can arrange temporary Northern Territory firearms permits for the duration of the clients' hunt.
Hunt Arnhemland is committed to satisfying all the needs of the dedicated game hunter, and we look forward to hosting your hunting experience of a lifetime.
