I'm a professional hunter from South Africa... Been hunting professionally for past 8 years... Wanting to get into the hunting industry in Australia... Roo hunting, vermin control, professional hunting (guiding clients), etc... Any advise would be appreciated 😀

The industry here is small. My advice would be to stay where you are

Australia is not like SA in that the vast majority of people hunt diy in Australia.

Mind you I can imagine SA isn't probably the place you want to stay with new laws being passed.

I'd either look at working for a guide in new Zealand or if you come to Australia, consider something else.

Yip... The current situation is becoming emotionally charged and international hunting is down with over 40% in some areas. Farmers are already scaling down and many looking at alternatives with the threat of new laws being proposed... We are looking (as family) to immigrate and appreciate all the input in order to make informed decisions... Thx again for the feedback 🍻

It sure will be a shame to see South Africa go the way of other African countries. One day I'll do a hunt in Africa, probably wouldn't have been SA as I love free tange hunting but definitely not now, the list of places is just getting smaller.

 

I think it's the pendulum swinging to the other extreme, australia feels like it's heading the same way sometimes. We're becoming very much a leftist nanny state. All the best mate I hope you can get your family out safe.

Hi all,

Originally from Scotland, I now live & teach in NZ. I’ve really enjoyed learning to hunt deer and pigs over there and am keen to find out what hunting is like in Australia (currently in Gold Coast).

cheers

I’m an American coming to visit in December and looking to bow hunt deer. Wondering if there are any bow hunters out there in NSW looking to meet up for a hunt ? 

 

Thanks, Mitch

Howdy,

 

I hail from the Republic of Texas, took my first deer at 9, sparking my passion for the outdoors. Since then i've hunted in europe, when i lived there for work, earning the coveted German Jagdschein. Lately, i've hunted out in the Western part of US chasing Elk, Mule deer, Oryx, and Auodad. With the rise in popularity of hunting out west, the cost of applying to the various states, has gotten my hunting partner and i looking international. I  come here hoping to learn more about the aussie public land, rules, culture, make contacts, and ideally do an 'exchange' hunt - show us the ropes of hunting down under, and the same or next year we'll do a group hunt on US public land. This coming fall - aussie spring - we are applying for Wyoming general elk, Arizona mule deer, New Mexico Elk/Oryx/Auodad/White tail. This sounds like alot of hunting but with each states unique application system, we'll likely pull the Wyoming tags, and one New Mexico tag. 

 

This past year we had tags for idaho elk, a bison tag on tribal indian land,  and NM Orxy and Auodad tags.

Hi BoCo

If you want to hunt the southern state of Victoria for Sambar deer 

-Gain a visitor firearm licence for state of Victoria

-Buy a game licence from the 'Game management authority' ($55 dollars I think)

-Borrow a gun once you're here.

This lets you hunt as many deer as you want at any time of year on most public land.

 

If you want to hunt Water buffalo up north it's a little trickier as in most cases you need to find private property.
