Deer Hunting Beginner Course

North East Experience

Hunt Description

This involves us heading out and getting a feel for the basics of hunting and learning the do’s and don’ts, along with taking an animal for the purpose of breaking it down and learning the basics of bush butchering and recovering meat cleanly. This is a hands-on experience where the course attendees will do majority of the work with our guidance.

Depending on your level of gun handling, this is also an opportunity to touch on the safety aspects involved with handling and shooting firearms prior to heading out in the bush.

Note: With our beginners courses, the guide will perform the shooting

1 DAY COURSE

Arrive Friday afternoon for set up followed by dinner. Saturday morning, we will be up early for a tea or coffee in order to leave before sunrise. We will aim to be back at 12pm for lunch with enough time to process animals and pack up etc.

2 DAY COURSE

Arrive Friday afternoon for set up followed by dinner. Saturday morning, we will be up early for a tea or coffee in order to leave before sunrise. We will aim to be back at 12pm for lunch and processing of animals etc, before leaving for an afternoon hunt, returning after dark for dinner. Sunday mornings hunt will leave before sunrise and aim to be finished by mid-morning, with enough time for breakfast and to pack-up before departure.

BUTCHERING

If you would like the option to run through meat break down/ cuts of meats and sausage making, this is the option for you. This will need to be decided amongst your group prior to commencing, as we will need to allocate time for this. Please note, this means you will need to sacrifice one of your hunts. Note: extra costs will be applicable for cryovac bags, sausage fillings, breadcrumbs, skins, etc. This will be payable on the day.

MEALS

Meals will be home style cooking. Given this is a customisable experience, if you wish to do some campfire style cooking (as featured on our website) this is possible – however it will require extra time (which will reduce our hunting time)
