Hello,

My dad is an exceptional shooter, Prior to 2000, my father used to hunt Kangaroos from 70-80m with a smith & western. wild pigs, goats. crocs,

He can hunt rabbits and birds in the same fire sequence,

When shooting from over 100m he likes to put the hole through the eye.

Recently on our last trip we drove around for less than an hour, and stopped when we saw roos, he killed 17 roos with 10 rounds.

I think he found it someone boring!

My dad is 70 now and not as strong as he used to be.

I would like to take him on a hunting trip, But also one where he will not have to trek for a long period of time.

Maybe deer hunting, or camel hunting, in rural Australia!

But I am not sure where?

What percentage of a kangaroo is edible? Are there nose to tail cooking tricks? How much meat did you harvest from those 17?

Bring him to Texas.  We have a huge feral hog problem and lots of the farmers and ranchers here would be happy to pay him to hunt the hogs.   Since they're a pest, they are always in SEASON, no permits needed.  You just need the permission of the landowner to hunt them.  Pork might be a nice change of diet :D

I may be wrong but I don't think anyone on this forum would be able to give advice on good hunting locations in Australia. While there are people from all over the world here I think most are based in the US. I might suggest trying to find a forum about Australian hunting. I know there are many different forums geared to hunting in the US so I don't see any reason why Australia wouldn't have similar forums. Good luck on finding the info you're looking for and hopefully your hunting trip works out.
