Justin bought a set of Tiburon for his trip to Australia. I had to send him our photo samples to get them to him in time for his hunt. He just dropped me this email in the Airport and I wanted to share this with everyone!
I just finished my Australian hunt in the northern territory, outside of Darwin. I was hunting with friend and outfitter Scott Thomson of Southern Hunting Safaris. The hunt was planned to try for the new archery #1 Water Buffalo, and after four days, it was a success. I arrowed a massive bull at 30 yards. After putting the tape on him he scores 127″ passing the old record by 14″.
I brought over several pieces of KUIU, but due to the unusually high temps, I wore the new Tiburon gear the entire time. Had I not, I’m not sure I would have been able to withstand the heat as long sleeves were a must due to an abundance of mosquitoes. The temperature in the mornings started at around 80 and by midday they reached as high as 104.
The stalks on buffalo were not very far, but hunting the banteng was a whole different story. We would have to run into position and if they didn’t come close enough, I would then run along side trying to keep up in case they stopped to present a shot.
While Scott was caping the buffalo head, I decided to try and find a Rusa deer. It was midday and I spotted a group from about 110 yards away, I crawled to within 45 yards and made an amazing shot on the new archery world record Moluccan Rusa Deer.
The Tiburon line has achieved something no one else has, not only did I remain comfortable throughout the entire hunt, it also has the durability. I am looking forward to wearing this new gear in August while on safari in Africa.
Thanks again for the time and effort you have put into making KUIU.
