Rusa stag hunting in North Queensland Australia

Rusa deer huntWe have a limited number of hunts available for huge free range rusa stags on our exclusive hunting areas in North Queensland. These areas produce high quality rusa stags due to our “Trophy Heard Management Program” and we have taken 3 stags in the last three years that place in the top 10 of the record book.

Season

Rusa stags are in rut from mid-June to August. The best time to hunt is the last week of June to mid-July.

Hunting

Hunting is conducted during the rut when the stags are roaring. Spot and stalk is used in the semi open scrub land and calling and rattling is done to locate stags. Whilst most hunting is done on foot this is not a physically demanding hunt as the ground is flat and walking is easy.

Accommodation

Due to the remoteness of the hunting area (a working cattle station) we are only able to offer a tented camp. However you will be made very comfortable with portable beds and mattresses, shower facilities and good quality camp food.

Getting there

Hunters will fly to Longreach Regional Airport that is accessible via Brisbane International Airport where you will be met and transported two hours by vehicle to the hunting area.
