Hunting nsw park's near qld border

Post by bear foot bowhunter » 09 Mar 2018, 8:48 am

Hi guys i notised three of the parks on the r licence list are within 5-6 hours of where i live in qld . has anyone hunted them ? Is there any game there worth chasing ? Being closer to the brisban valley i suspect there is deer would that be right ? Im wondering if it would be worth my time getting a R hunting licece to hunt them or should i put my time into somthing else? Thanks heaps guys and gals for your replys

I'm thinking....there's one near Casino but not sure what's around in there or been to it but thought about it a few times. There should be the usual suspects - cats, foxes and dogs but as for dear, no idea....

Yeah, Mitch, can vouch for the foxes, dogs (big snarly ones too), cats and the odd pigs around the Kyogle area but haven't seen signs of deer. Could be around but haven't came across any....

I haven't been in there but I would suggest that there are feral dogs in that area. I'm over Kyogle/Casino way and there is feral dogs and foxes and cats there, so I don't see why these 3 pests wouldn't be around there too.
I haven't come across anyone that has actually hunted there but does the Forestry bods have any information?.

Not a whole lot of info on the website. There has been no reported pests killed in there. But that doesn't really mean anything. And in regards to the terrain, I've had a look on google earth and it looks like some pretty bloody thick bush

Yeah only got mine couple weeks ago. More than likely will hit up Girard at some stage. Even if I don't see anything still beats paying a few hundred bucks to go to one of the inland hunting properties I suppose.

All the forests near the border at the higher elevations have dense jungle almost unhuntable go for the lower elevation ones 200m or less

Booked into Torrington in a few weeks with any luck might have something to report ... but that's why they call it hunting not killing . Freezer has room so with any luck...

Yep, made that mistake too. Waste of time. Certainly would be deer in the vicinity but not in the designated hunting area. Lasted one day and drove home. Gotta go further near Tamworth for anything decent.
