G'day. This is Aussie John and welcome to "The Big Game Hunting Blog". B.G.H.A. is packed full of  dedicated adventures, with my hunting blog,  photo galleries, travel stories, tips, fishing blog , 4 wheel drive gear, reviews and new products. Outdoor promotion and marketing business is mixed in with social media and outdoor stories for entertainment.


I cut my teeth on the magnificent Sambar deer. Back in those days there were no hunting blogs, crowds or tarred roads just a heck of a lot of places for a young fella to hunt in the High Country practically every weekend. I owned and operated a very successful 4 Wheel Drive Accessories and Outdoor business on the border of N.S.W. and Victoria, so the bush was really my home away from home!


During the 80's 2-3 mates and I would regularly backpack into the Humphrey River for 10 days of unspoilt wilderness hunting Sambar Stags and pristine trout fishing in the mountain streams and creeks. In fact, our remote backpacking shelter/hut still stands today 30 years later in the Humphrey River somehow surviving many bush-fire periods.

I operated an ARB accessories store in Albury and later a luxury 4 WD Tour Company called Champagne Sunset Tours, back in early 2000. It featured on The Great Outdoors & Healthy Wealthy & Wise TV Shows. The business, also won the Victorian Fair Trader Country Award Of The Year for customer service. The business was a finalist in both NSW & Victoria Tourism Awards for four years running.

These days I am a Queenslander on the Gold Coast, but I still manage to get back to the Victorian high Country once or twice a year to hunt Sambar. It wasn't long after I arrived in Queensland and hit the ground running with a few Fallow deer down and making a dent in the Australian feral hog population.


My passion for travel and hunting and working in the outdoor industry in Australia started in 2008... It began in Texas, with Whitetails and Hogs. I have road-tripped around 40 States so far - there’s so much to see and do. Sending an arrow on its way from a tree stand in the deep snow to bear country in deep Alaska - the hunting has been an adrenaline-charged adventure! 


I can recommend hunting with stunning scenery in Alaska, float planes and my 375Ruger loaded with Barns beside me. This 2018 I drew a very sort after tag from San Carlos Indian Reservation for Coues Deer and really looking forward to that hunt in AZ.

Earlier this year I was off hunting Dangerous Game in Limpopo and Plains Game within the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Put it all together...and we have an awesome adventure lined up traveling the world!

I create modern mobile friendly web-sites with 1st page SEO ranking outfitters world wide. I am a Social Media Influencer on social media who has established credibility in the hunting industry, with access to a large audience. Not only do I travel to the outfitters places of business around the world, but actually hunt and use there facilities to get a first hand insight and hands on recommendation. If your an outfitters who wants to reach new markets or improve their website and SEO presents then contact me. 


Bows &



The first time l looked down the barrel of a 375 H&H, and then a few weeks later through the peep sight of my bow... and both times  I wondered if that  2000lb wild scrub bull would  turn and charge me! 

What an adrenaline rush...
