Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:No real problems other than we brought our own double rifles which slowed us down as we tried to leave the country. The Monday we were flying out was a holiday which caused government offices to not be staffed which led to the issues.nnAlso, as mentioned above, we hunted a new area for Banteng and it took us several days to figure out where they were.
Highlights of Hunt:Taking my Banteng, buffalo and boar with my William Evans double rifle. This will be a foot safari for the most part and we averaged walking 8 to 10 miles per day. Does allow for close approaches on game and a great opportunity for open sighted double guns. Spending a day fishing along the river for barramundi and the other local fish was a blast and a break from the hard hiking.
Equipment Recommendations:It will get hot during the day so cool clothing and sturdy boots. I wore shorts and Kuiu short sleeved t-shirts. Definitely will want to pack gaiters if you hunt in shorts, lots of grass and weed seeds.nnIf you have a break-down rod and small spinning reel you won't regret taking it along.
