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.

They will take part in the hunt, have the opportunity to shoot a deer (will be a sambar or fallow) and take home the meat, as well as feature in the video. There will be plenty of opportunity to learn as well as hunt. A firearm licence is mandatory. Hunting on a mixture of public and private land. All accommodation (house) and food will be provided.” – Chris

Terry's New Year’s Meat and Velvet

Terry’s back with another great harvest report from earlier in the year. You can read more about it below.

Hunt story: “Empty freezer at the end of the festival season meant myself and a friend headed out to a privet property seeking a meat animal.

After a short glassing session a hind was spotted feed out through thickets cover. I made a plan to stalk in and close the distance. However once off the ridge the wind switched forcing me a different direction that didn’t bother me as looking up the gully I spotted several more deer.

After making a stalk to the edge of the cover between me and the deer I took a 300m shot and a young velvet stag took only a few metres to drop. Luckily on the fire access track on the ridge. Easy recovery”

March Hunt Giveaway

DOUBLE Hunting Experience Giveaway

Congrats to Melissa K on winning last month’s guided red deer hunt with Queensland Deer Safaris and Zaheer Q on winning the guided Sambar deer hunt with Micks Sambar Science!

This month we have another TWO hunts to give away.

The first hunt we are giving away is access to a beautiful property near Flowerdale Victoria that borders the state forest and is full of wild Sambar.  Winning this hunt gives you exclusive hunting access to the property for a weekend so you can head out there and bag yourself a deer.  Accommodation is provided. You’ll also get to meet Wally who runs the property and Naturally Sufficient, one of Victoria’s best hunting workshop providers.

No bag or species limit, just comes down to how lucky you are.

The second hunt we are giving away is a guided Sambar deer hunt with Baw Baw Adventures.

Your guide Pete from Baw Baw Adventures has more than likely been hunting longer than you’ve been breathing.

Pete is an amazing guide and will get you on to Sambar quicker than you can tie up your bootlaces.  You can choose either cabin or camping accommodation. Similarly the hunt will be tailored to your objectives. 

You can choose to harvest either a Sambar Stag or Hind. It’s up to you.

Don’t forget all Platinum members will automatically go into the draw to win these two experiences and the winners will be announced on the first week-day of next month via the member’s news page as well as our Instagram account, Facebook group and official Facebook page (so make sure you like and follow them). The winners will also be sent a confirmation email.
