Tasmanian Field Bow Hunting Archery Club on the East Coast

October 5, 2017 admin

Bow hunting in bush land.
Way back in 2010 I decided to start an archery club in Tasmania, but ours was going to be different to the other ones that were already in the state. The Break O’Day Field Archery Club was the first archery club in Tasmania to be affiliated with Australian Bowhunters Association and we are located in St Helens on the East Coast of Tasmania. This means that we are bow hunting in picturesque bushland using animal photographic targets and unmarked field lanes. Our club also does knife and axe throwing as well. All these skills are part of hunting traditions, however, in many cases you will never actually transfer these skills to the wild. Come and join us at the Break O’Day Field Archery to learn how to do archery in Tasmania or for the experienced archer come and have a shoot. Brady Young President.

    1. Sorry Neil I just saw your post and apologise for any delay.

      You cannot under any circumstances shoot an animal with a bow and arrow in Tasmania. It is totally illegal.
      On the mainland there are different rules that apply to each state. As a general rule you need an R-licence and a proficiency in bow hunting. If you ring the DPI for each state they should be able to help you. Regards Liane
