2024 Club camp UPDATE

*UPDATE* – Brad and Lynda from HavaGo are now in the process of locking down bookings for the guided hunts both during and after the camp. Spots are running out, so if you want to bag a meat animal or trophy you’ll want to do it quicky before there are no more opportunities. To express your interest in a guided hunt during or in the week following the camp fill out the camp RSVP form linked here – https://australianhunters.com.au/event/2024-club-annual-camp/

This year we are hosting our annual camp in June on Queensland’s Premier hunting safari property, Nyora!

 

Nyora is one of the biggest and best safari hunting properties in Australia home to thousands of free-range deer, and MONSTER stags/bucks (red, fallow, rusa and chital), goats, pigs, camels, donkeys, buffalo and texas longhorn all wandering the property.

 

During the camp you’ll have plenty of opportunities to see these animals in a free-range environment as well as enjoy some time hanging out and socializing with other club members.

 

Dodge will be back with his trivia night, HavaGo will be hosting a shooting competition, there will be buggy tours of the property and even a meat goat hunt raffled off and run during the camp! The winner of the hunt will also get off easy as we will be running a goat butchering workshop too!

 

And if that wasn’t enough, during the camp and the week following the camp has been completely booked out exclusively for club members who want to stay on the property and book a guided hunt at a discounted rate.

 

Learn more and RSVP your spot at the camp and any friends you want to bring along via the page linked below.

No cost, just pay for your own dinner and drinks.

You don’t have a to be a member of the Australian hunters Club to attend, everyone is welcome. Bring your friends and family.

RSVP essential via the link below so we can book tables. 

Patches still available.

We are excited to announce a new range of official Australian Hunters Club branded products and hunting gear.

Not only can you buy official club patches from our online store (we still have a few 2024 patches available by the way), but you can now buy branded handmade leather goods, bottle openers and neck gaiters.

You can learn more or purchase the products via the links below.

Our club leather products are handmade by a member of our community.

About Dirk, Acts10 Leather.

Dirk is not only a brilliant craftsman, but an avid hunter and member of our community. Dirk started making leather goods under the banner Acts 10 in 2020 when his wife gave him a small leather tool kit for fathers day.

Since then he has turned this simple yet profound gift into a passion for designing, cutting, shaping and molding custom leather goods by hand. Stitch by stitch.

As a community, we value passion, hard work and the pursuit of excellence and that’s why we are proud to have our club logo featured on Dirks exemplified work.

These products are not cheap. They are not mass-produced. Every item is hand-tooled by Dirk and has that special boutique touch you would only experience from high-end maker.

You buy products like this because you value the art, craftsmanship and want to support the creator fueling their passion, not because you are trying to find a bargain.

The Australian Hunters Club is honored to partner with Dirk and Acts 10 Leather and we hope you get to enjoy the fruit of his labor and craft.

For nonhunting related lather goods you can view Dirks Etsy page here or follow along with Dirk’s journey via his Instagram account here.

Kyla and Malachi’s club hosted hunt

Remember Kyal hosted a hunt in Nundel NSW that we promoted in our last month’s newsletter? Well, member Malachi was lucky enough to get chosen to go on the trip and MAN ALIVE which is a big trip! Watch the video above to hear a short testimony from the guys.

Hosting and attending hunts is one of the best things we do as a community. If you haven’t hosted one yet you are missing out. 

Not only does hosting a hunt give someone else the opportunity to go somewhere they probably haven’t been before, but it also gives you the opportunity to make a new friend and benefit from the goodwill you are putting back into the community.

You can learn more about hosting hunts with the club here or host your own hunt here. Hunts can be a short or long as you want, there is no template, it’s just about getting out together, having fun and enjoying this lifestyle we all know and love.
