Coming Soon…

Every year we at Australian Outfitters by Andrew Mackay try to make an improvement to our already world-class hunting camp. This year we have a few changes we are proud to announce, but they are still under construction. Check back for the great reveal. No matter how far out bush, we make the Australian Outback a comfortable place to relax in the evening. Nothing is better than waking up to the sounds of nature, the roar of the waterfall and all the comforts of home in the middle of the Australian bush. We might be an Outback bush camp, but we strive to provide 5-star amenities. This year is no different and our buffalo camp has some great additions in the making. Looking forward to a wonderful 2018 season.

The Fleet is in Camp

The set up process has begun. In order to make a 5-star camp in the bush, it takes a lot of work. Here at Australian Outfitters by Andrew Mackay we work hard to tame the bush. We have now arrived at camp, town truck, hunting trucks and all. Now the setup work begins. Grass must be cute, tents set up, beds made, laundry done. All the mundane tasks of a hunting camp. More photos will follow, but here is our fleet all parked in the start of our bush taming process. The buffalo are here, so now we must make our world-class, Outback hunting camp. Making Australian hunting dream a reality.

Long Bow Adventure – Doug Otte – June 2017

I have had the good fortune to bow hunt with Andrew Mackay on three occasions. The latest was at his new camp and concession at Big River. The camp is awesome with a great view of a waterfall on the Roper River to enjoy from the dining table. Andrew’s skills as a guide and hunter are unsurpassed in my opinion. He knows the buffalo and how to get you close. The food was great also and was expertly prepared by his camp manager, Lora. Thanks to Andrew, Craig and Lora for a great hunting adventure.

Australia Group Hunt – August 2016

It was a great hunt. All-in-all, it was a great experience. Each hunter in out group took a buffalo. The food was great and all the comforts of the outback were provided. Great time!

I had a wonderful time spending time with Lora in camp. It’s been ten or more years since I have spent time in a tent and this was a great experience! Thank you for everything!

Hunt Report – Melanie Pepper

We met Andrew of Australian Outfitters at FTW Ranch in Barksdale, TX with our grandson Max (age 6 then). We all took the long range shooting school and hunted with Andrew in Texas several times. His hunting skills, determination in acquiring our trophies, optimism and great sense of humor convinced us to com to Australia. And what a fabulous time we had: Great trophies, beautiful tent camp, terrific food and lots of laughter. All of this and Lora Young too. We call her “amazing” Lora. She does anything and everything well and carries it out with graciousness. A great addition to Andrew’s camp and we can’t wait to see her in the states! (and Andrew too, lol)

Thanks for a great hunt and a great time. Out long awaited Australian hunt certainly did not disappoint! Can’t wait to return with out grandson Max who is now 16!
