Best Answer

Ben Hall was a successful grazier, and it is unknown why he turned to bushranging. There was an incident when he was falsely accused and arrested for robbery, then acquitted. When he returned to his property he found his stock missing. It is speculated that he then became disillusioned with the 'straight' life, and instead turned to bushranging.
