How does it work?

The hunting party is welcome to arrive anytime after 9am on the first day. After arrival at Blue Mountain Station, all guests will be inducted to the farm. A pre hunting meeting will take place at the main homestead to explain the boundaries of your hunting block, maps, hunting intel, accommodation and a Q&A. Hunters will be assigned a GPS locator/Personal Locator Beacon.

After the pre hunting meeting you will be taken to your accommodation and shown around.  At 12pm on the first day hunters can begin actively hunting. This hunting period will go through until 12pm on the last day of your hunt (Day 6)
