The girls were a bit concerned about finding out there will be deer hunting in the area that we were going to camp while visiting Eildon, apparently the hunting season goes through till 30th November, don't want to get shot while drinking our cocoa. Should we be concerned and camp elsewhere.

i take it that its a national park

i doubt that you would be allowed into the park while a cull is in progress...public liability etc

While 4wding around WOods point, we regularly came across "TEAMS" of dudes out hunting.

Gone are the days of doin it easy, they now use GPS, and Handhelds, and dogs with tracking devices!

Baz The Eildon NP [Only some parts] Are open to To deer stalking only . Not hound hunting . Their is a major difference . The hunting season lasts from just after easter until the end of November [The winter months] The hunting in this area has been going on for years . I have hunted there myself. You will very rarely see a Deer Stalker hunting there although he will see you. Stalkers very rarely walk on roads or tracks. I would not hesitate taking my family there for a holiday. The most dagerous part would be the drive to the Park Cheers Stan

Likely to get deer hunters in lots of the high country, they usually take over the huts
and thats worse if they have dogs.

Deer hunting has been going on in that area for at least 30 years, the deer wont come anywhere near your camp, most hunters are very good and the danger is minimal. The deer numbers are at a record high at the moment, not enough hunters. Eric.

Baz

I have been an avid deer stalker/hunter for about about 9 years now, and I can tell you that it is one of the safest pastimes there is. Considering the amount of deer hunters there is in Australia at the moment the safety of it, very seldom ever gets a mention in the news. Apart from the fact that the occasional hunter may become lost.
Deer like to feed and hang out where the presence of humans and noise is at a minimum. So this generally rules out stalkers hunting in, or within close proximity of popular camping areas. As a matter of fact you may not even know we are there, because we usually hunt the quiet areas of the bush which could be many kilometres away from camping areas and tracks.
So my advice is take the girls out camping and not to worry, and if you do see a deer hunter give him a wave because he is probably only on his way to a favourite spot, many miles from where you guys will be.

Cheers, 75_Series

could try fluro vests like the hunters in america although as per previos posts probably unneccessary as it was brought about over there due to trigger happy seppos flooding into forests en masse and shooting at anything that moved during deer season
