Thread: My hunting camp

  1. #1

    My hunting camp

    I'm fortunate that I live in a place where I can get to my hunting areas within a few hours drive. I usually set up my camp and spend a few days in the area on private land that I have access to. There are some good Fallow deer there as well as wild pigs and foxes, so the choice is pretty good. I'm not all that interested in the ultimate trophy head, but would rather hunt for meat as far as the deer are concerned. The pigs I hunt to cull them because they are a pest. Likewise the foxes, but I'm likely to take some skins from them. I'm working on getting enough to make may Grand kids a little fur matt each. None of these animals are native to Australia, although there is a closed season on the deer. There's also some fishing to be had in the nearby streams. Here's one of the camps.
    Cheers,

    Sounds like fun! Do you get away often? Have I misunderstood you, or don't you take the meat from the pigs?

    Hi Tacklerat, I spent 6 months working on a farm near Forbes in my youth - maybe further south than you? Other than a Carp I didn't find much to fish for - what species are you fishing for? I assume it's to hot for trout.

    Looks like an ideal place and way to "get away from it ill" and do what you obviously love doing.
    If the truth be known I am willing to bet that the majority of us over here in the UK are quite envious of you!

    I miss getting out in the bush. Had some great times under the stars with the roo's about me and other things. Used to live in Ardlethan as a little boy and would love to get back again for some camping.
    Just had a cover made for my trailer so I can camp up at my new ground in Scotland later in April. A few more bit's to do and make to have a easy camp. I'll post pics later.
