Brown Quail Hunting Tasmania

RockJaw Tours

Hunt Description

All inclusive, fully guided (by licensed experienced local guides) Packages are available for combination hunts on Flinders Island.

Rockjaw Tours has exclusive rights to hunt on Vansittart Island a 1500 acre Island .

We have hunted the Island for the last 8 years.

The Quail season normally starts the the third weekend in May and runs for 6 weeks.

We have generous bag limits of 20 birds per day (Depending on how the quail have bred).

Hunters can bring their own dogs or hunt over my dogs Midnight Flatboat retriever, Louise English setter, Patience English setter, Prudence English setter, Lucky Flat Coat Setter cross.

I normally hunt with a maximum of 6 hunters but will cater for the smaller groups.

Trip Length

I normally take bookings for either 3 or 4 nights. 3 night stays are from Friday until Monday. 4 night stays are from Monday until Friday Longer or Shorter trips can be arranged.

Accommodation

Accommodation is a modern comfortable 4 bedroom house, the bedrooms have 2 to 3 single beds each. All linen and towels will be provided. Accommodation is for up to 11 people, we can also cater for larger groups.

Transportation/Flights

Hunters from Victoria fly out of Essendon Airport leaving from the main terminal at Essendon Fields.

Check in at the Sharp Aviation counter in the main terminal.

Hunters from Tasmania fly from Launceston Airport, they leave from the Sharp aviation terminal walking distance north of the main Launceston terminal.

Hunters from other states or overseas may find it easier to travel to Launceston and travel to Flinders Island from there.

Flights from Essendon take approximately 1 hour 15 minutes and normally depart at 1.15 pm and arrive on Flinders Island at 2.30pm.

Flights from Launceston take approximately 35 minutes there are up to 3 flights per day from Launceston.

Most of my clients fly with Sharp Airlines they are the only RPT service (Regular Passenger Timetable) that operates to Flinders Island.

Weight Limit

There is a strict weight limit of 21 kilograms person this includes your gun and carry on luggage.

Most people pack to 13 kilograms this allows for goose meat and fish to taken home.

Excess luggage will be charged $6.00 per kilo if they can fit it on the the flight. Most people can pack to this limit with no problem.
