Hunting Safaris By Sam’s Travel

Red Deer

Red deer are the second largest of Australia’s wild deer species and are probably the deer with which most mainland Australians are familiar because of their presence in large numbers. A mature stag stands about 120cm at the shoulder and weighs somewhere between 135kg and 160kg.

Hunting Season

From February to August

Rusa Deer

Rusa is the Malay word for deer and they are medium sized, rough-coated deer which are biologically allied to the sambar. However, the two species are quite different in size, appearance and behaviour. There are two subspecies established in the wild in Australia and the Javan rusa (Rusa timorensis russa) is the larger. Stags stand up to 110cm at the shoulder and may weigh around 136kg while hinds are considerably smaller at 95cm and 60kg.

Hunting Season

June to November

Fallow Deer

Fallow deer are one of the most abundant species of deer on the Australian continent and offer incredible hunting opportunities for those looking to break into the sport of deer hunting, or experienced hunters looking to chase a reclusive and wary animal. Though Fallow deer are abundant, they can seem like ghosts at times in the field and is one of the many reasons hunters enjoy chasing them.

Hunting Season

February to August

Australian Sambar Deer

Males may grow to 2.4m long and weigh 300kg, and females may grow to 2.4m long and weigh 230kg. Their coat is coarse and uniform in colour that varies from red-brown to almost black, but predominately dark brown. The tail is black with the under-tail and inner sides of the legs paler in colour. When alarmed the tail is raised. The hair around the neck is coarse and mane-like, particularly on mature males.
