game permits here run from $25 to $500 for a permit to shoot an animal on the average, looking at deer to Elk across the various states. I pay $15 for a deer permit, but a non resident would have to pay around $350. To get a guided hunt, you would have to pay up to $4000 depending on who you hired.

In dollars, what would you reckon that it would cost to hunt in Oz?

Thanks Jon. I think alot of people were questioning the legality of the kill before there was further context. Even I assumed it was in the US. Glad we got that cleared up. Obviously ftf doesn't condone poaching or killing of domestic animals.

Ok different states here have different rules for some animals and where we can hunt.
I'll use my state of New South Wales as an example. To hunt in State Forests we hunters have to sit for a R-License which allows us into a few of our State Forests to hunt ferals animals but we can't shoot Kangaroos or any native animals which is not a real problem to everybody. These licenses once obtained cost something like $60 for a year and a bit more for 3 years and there are some strict conditions to be adhered to such as wearing a blaze Orange vest or cap to ID you to any other hunters in the selected areas. There are only so many hunters allowed into a State Forest on any given day so there's a booking system in place for that.

In Victoria there is a permit you pay for and you can hunt on most public lands down there at any time.

Guided hunts inAustralia vary a fair bit depending on what you want to hunt being things like Deer,Buffalo,Scrub Cattle and then pigs,goats etc and a this is for trophy quality stuff. In our Northern Territory a buff hunt can cost anything upto $Aus16,000 plus you have to get here 1st.
As I said I can supply at least the name of 1-2 good outfitters who'll get you what you want. For buffalo you'll need something with a least a 300gn pill minimum asthese critters can soak up a lot of lead and 2 years ago I was working for an outfitter in the Northern Territory and saw 1 buff soak up 4 .375 RUM 300 pills and still run off 50yds before it went down. It's horns went 103" and the 1st projectile was recovered under the skin on the opposite shoulder.It was shot from around 50yds initially.

Once an animal leaves its farmstead and begins roaming, it is no longer domestic, it has become feral. Here, we shoot them with no remorse. I have one huge black feral cat that has been hanging around the ranch here, I am going to attempt to keep him and get some females hoping to have some black kittens from him. He is very large weighing probably 15 to 20 pounds,,,10 kilo's or so. Hes gonna make me some black kittens for my barn.

The tags are not bad, but the guide fees are a bit steep. $16,000 AD would be about $15,500 USD,,,,,at todays exchange rate,,,,that'd buy a lot of biltong, eh?

We do have some deadly snakes here but they're not all over the place and the chances of getting bit are about the same as getting hit by a train.
I'd say the chances would be equal to what they are over there and if you go looking for them you'll find them but it's not as though they're waiting to ambush you as you walk out the door. Don't believe everything you hear or see in the media or tv.
I spend a bit of time out in the bush hunting and fishing and don't see that many snakes but during the warmer months I'm a little bit more careful about what sticks I pick up for the camp fire. Most snakes will get out of your way unless they're either stepped on,cornered or protecting their nest,regards

The only way I'm hunting in Australia is if I'm warring one of these bad boys. Snake proof & helps with the Elephant trampling. 99% crocodile resistant to.
