Sambar Deer

Hunting Method | Equipment | Weather Conditions | Transport, Accommodation and Facilities

Sambar Deer are available wild and free in Victoria from April until October each year and wild and free in New Zealand.

They are also available in a large game ranch in the South Australia from May until September.

Sambar Deer are big, tough and secretive and very difficult to hunt in Victoria's remote mountains. The hunting terrain is often steep, heavily wooded hillsides. You will require good hunting skills and be physically capable.

For our Victorian hunt, our guide will meet our hunters at Melbourne and drive them to the Sambar Deer Hunting area, in Victoria's alpine forests. In New Zealand, you will be met at Taupo and driven to the hunt area.

Hunting Method
Hunting in Victoria is by camping out in the bush with the deer, in fly camps with sparse facilities, then hunting on foot all day from dawn until dark in generally steep mountainous conditions. In New Zealand, we hunt similar areas close to town facilities.

Hunting in the Game Ranch in South Australia is by driving to selected locations, then by walking the rolling hill country, glassing then stalking the game.

Equipment
It is recommended that our hunters bring a heavy calibre rifle, minimum of 300 Mag or 338, whichever gun they can shoot well. Premium grade ammunition and accurate shooting are called for when Sambar hunting.

In Victoria the most suitable clothing would be what you would wear in the mountains in North America in late autumn (fall). Boots should be well broken-in mountain hunting boots with full depth vibram soles.

Good quality binoculars are necessary in each of these areas.
