  1. They’re More-or-less Man-sized and similar construction so anything that works good on people will do!

    I know a few Aussie hunters, and essentially what you hunt white-tails with here, they’ll use to take down reds and grays.

  2. I know several australian hunters. One of the most popular cartridges down there is the .35 Whelen. It’s a lot like the .375 H&H in Africa. Powerful enough to kill just about anything on the continent without any more recoil than is absolutely necessary.

    1. If a Kangaroo kills you, you came away lucky. The buck-on-buck fights involve leaning back on their tails and attacking each other in the genitals. It is literally “reproduction of the fittest” as the loser is emasculated. When they attack humans, they do it in the same way. You can survive a kangaroo fight, but you may not want to.
