Hunt for Chital Stag in Queensland

Chital deer huntOur Guides / Outfitters are offering hunting for the strikingly beautiful Chital Stag on 50 sq miles of open savannah country in far North Queensland. Pigs and dingoes may also be taken at no extra cost to the hunter.

The hunting area is a working cattle ranch which has never been open to hunting until 2005, so it is well stocked with mature Chital Stags and plenty of big tusky Wild Boars.


Chital hunting is mainly on foot, although a vehicle or quadbike is used to cover the vast distances on this ranch. Spot and stalk is the main method used or sometimes a hide or blind is another successful method.
