    Keep your chin up Cam...... It'll be alright in the long run.

    Dualie,
    The vast bulk of cattle here are handled the same way as yours.
    More are being mustered with the aid of helicopters in more extensive areas...with some preparation and with experienced operators, this is a calm and efficient process.
    However, in the far north, cattle are run in huge areas of timbered country with a very distinct wet and dry season.
    It is common for some to be missed for a year or two, these are the ones, mostly bulls, that have to be caught like this.
    The buffalo are a different story.
    They are the Asian water buffalo and were introduced, way back when, as beasts of burden and as a food supply for early settlements.
    Later they were released to the wild and went feral.
    Numbers of feral buff are now much reduced, but they say there are still some 80000 in the Territory.
    Cheers, Greg

    Lots of ferrel pigs up there to and crocks and snakes.

    Some of the bulls n cows we catch are clean skins and have never seen man b4 or maybe once or twice.
    Trapping on water can be very effective but there are alwase those cunning old coots that think being elusive is funny.

    U must b carefull a few scrubbers can reak havok and tempt coaches away from a mob there is usually some inbreeding in the micks that makes em even harder to Handel.
    I've had a few that got shot.

    Catching em is only half the battle quitening them down is another problem on its own.

    Even just the task of getting them off to the works can b a fair contract on its own.

    Hopefully u can get a truck in and truck em out if not sometimes u gotta add coaches try 2 quitening them down and walk em out believe me u want good men half reasonable horses and if possible a few good dogs are very handy indeed.

    For those of u who may not know it's not that hard to tip a beast of horse back if u have 2 good men and a pair of balls with some tech neack one man on the head and one on the tail clown the head one way and pull the tail the same way will put the beast of balance and he will fall strait on his side.

    Unless u have an experienced sidekick do not try it if u stuff it up not only do u loose the beast but u could b seriously injured.

    Since the introduction of choppers n bikes n trucks and better breeding n bloodlines coupled with loose lick runs better fencing and stations buying there own graders for road matience ect I would have thought that wild cattle like that would have become a thing of the past but with vast distances of crown land plenty of natural water available there still out there and I don't think the job of the top end ringer will ever die out.

    A great thing for a young bloke to 2 get in to it will toughen u up and some of the skills n values learned will carry through 4 a life time .

    Personally I think some of our youth busy being a bum ake in the city need to b rounded up and put to work on some of,these places and worked so hard all day every day all they wanna do at nite time is sleep.

    My 2 cence worth anyway

    It's aluminium. 6061 for the structural stuff, 6060 for the light sections. Handcrafted by myself and the team of filipino maidens that work for me. (When they bother to turn up, which isn't often.)

    Sorry Cam, I must have missed your post from December last year asking for photos of the r-send. It looks like you don't need them now but if you need any other info, shout out. The tray is looking nice.

    I see you've gone for the tie down rail design. I've always preferred rope hooks myself. Any particular reason?

    Anyone else want to discuss the two options?

    Tbh Cmark, I've never had reason to consider anything other than tie down rails, as 99.9% of trays in the bush are made that way.
    Debatable, but the rails may add some extra rigidity to trays sentenced to hard labour.
    The hooks would be handy when using those smaller ratchet straps though.

    Yea mate I'm in town 4 the night put a Mulga stick through a radiator core today anyway there is a lot of thought in my tray I'll need a few hrs to point out all the details I like the rail design as I can hook on anywhere full length of the tray and with the water tank design and fuel pod design and mud guard design I had 2 go that way when I get a spare night I'll put up some picks and point some things out there is more to go on the tray yet it will make more sense when it's finished
