Hunt Description

Course  3 days

ONE ON ONE OR SMALL PRIVATE GROUPS ONLY

 

Day 1 and 2 

A one on one or small private group. Hands on in the bush education experience, that runs from sunrise to sunset, where you learn the skills necessary to become a successful sambar hunter, without a firearm and the pressure of trying to get a shot on day 1 & 2.

 

Skills included

Finding, tracking, sign interpretation, equipment choices, understanding sambar’s behaviour, the different ways to hunt sambar, how to plan a hunt, shot placement, what to do after the shot, skinning, butchering, trophy prep, how to utilise technology

 

Day 1 & 2 breakdown  

6am ~ We leave the hunting lodge at first light and head out into the bush and look for deer.

10:30am ~We arrive back at the lodge and spend the middle part of the day going over some theory with the aide of photos and video

12:30pm ~ Lunch Break, I provide lunch and we have a rest.

1:30 ~ Go over some more theory.

3pm ~ We head back out into the bush and stay out there until dark (5:30 – 6:30pm).

 

*times may change due to weather and deer activity on the day.

 

All experience and fitness levels are welcome.

​Day 3 

Shot Placement Training
( 3 to 4 hours around 2.5km walking )

 

Shoot life size deer targets in a real bush setting with Paul by your side. Check your firearms accuracy first at our private gun range with deer shaped targets and then assess your shot placement and likely hood of a clean kill on life size sambar deer targets. Work out your comfort zone with ranges from 40m to 150m up hill, down hill and across the gully.

The only way to practice shooting deer without shooting deer, so when you get a chance to take a shot at your dream deer you’re confident you can take the shot and humanely take the animal.

 

Day 3 breakdown 

8am ~ Start at the hunting lodge with 1 hour of theory before traveling to the shooting range.

10am ~ We first check your gun is shooting accurately at our standard gun range then begin training.

The course takes 2 to 3 hours and involves around 2.5km of walking.

The course is run on private property near Euroa an hour from the hunting lodge so you can take your own car and leave directly from there at the end of the training.

 

Optional add on to day 3

 

Trophy & Meat Preparation

Get your hands dirty and have a go at doing it yourself with Paul’s guidance showing you all the tricks along the way. Learn every thing from breaking down of a whole deer in the bush and the best ways to get it out. Butchering your own free range, organic red meat, ready for the table. How to prepare your trophy for a taxidermist or the wall. Bring your own knives or use Paul’s &  take home some FREE RANGE, ORGANIC RED MEAT.

 

Day 3 with optional add on breakdown

6am ~ Start at the hunting lodge with 1hour of theory before traveling to the shooting range.

8am ~ We first check your gun is shooting accurately at our standard gun range then begin training.

The course takes 2 to 3 hours and involves around 2.5km of walking.

1pm ~ Return to the hunting lodge for lunch.

2pm ~ Spend the afternoon breaking down a whole sambar deer, all the way to steaks and mince ready to cook.  (Bring a esky to take home the venison at the end of the training course. )

 

Day 4 breakdown 

At the crack of dawn get Paul to place you into prime sambar habitat in one of the harder to reach places, aided with some of Paul’s expert advice, spend the day testing your hunting skills against the mighty sambar deer for the day.

We will return at an arranged time and place to collect yourself and any deer harvested and return you to base.

A combination of drop off by car, and pick up by boat, is a great way to hunt because it’s all downhill.

All experience and fitness levels are welcome.
