My life of big game hunting so far

Sometimes I sit back and have to feel blessed, because a lot of people can hunt a lifetime without taking animals like I already have. I think its been a combination of hard work and luck but I've done a lot more than I would have imagined at the age of 22.
I hope you can enjoy these pics of some of the animals I've been fortunate enough to take in my life so far. Hopefully there are a lot more to come.

Thanks mate,
I'm in Australia but the Sika and Tahr I shot in NZ. Its the same price to fly to NZ than it is to fly up to Northern Australia to hunt chital and Rusa so I do that once a year now.

Bit more than that left!

We've got 15 species of big game between Aus and NZ.
So far I've taken

Red,
Fallow,
Chital,
sambar,
Sika, and
Tahr.

Was going to go back hunting tahr or cham this year but not sure now. Would like to take a Rusa if I get the chance.

I'm yet to take a
Rusa,
Chamois,
Arapawa Ram,
Goat,
Pig,
Whitetail,
Buff,
Banteng, and my favourite
A nice Hog deer.

Don't think I'll ever get them all as Banteng hunts are out of my price range and I'd rather come to the US to take a whitetail one day. But I'll try!
