UPDATED March 22, 2020 - This event has been postponed indefinitely due to the Coronavirus COVID 19
ADA’s Northern & Yorke Branch (South Australia) is once again hosting the Shelley Hunting Camp in NE Victoria. Headquarters for this 2 to 8 April event is the Shelley Forest Camp, located midway between Tallangatta and Corryong, near the junction of the Murray Valley Highway and Avondale Road. The camp’s position can be located by searching ‘Shelley Forest Camp’ in Google Maps.
NE Victoria is mountainous and a mosaic of native forest, open dairy country and pine plantations. The area has abundant fallow and sambar deer, and a smaller population of red deer. The dates of the camp correspond to the early fallow deer rut and red deer roar.
Shelley Hunting Camp will run for seven (7) consecutive nights between (Thursday) 2 April and (Wednesday) 8 April inclusive. ADA members from any branch are welcome to stay for all 7 nights, or as little as 1 night. There are no outdoor powered sites; however, persons camping outside will have full and equal access to all indoor amenities, including ample cooking, refrigeration and freezer facilities. A large BBQ is located under the veranda.
Hunters who shoot a deer early in the camp will be able to freeze the venison and continue their hunting.
Please note that Hunters will need to prepare their own meals and are responsible for their own food.
The cost is $35 per person, per night for clean, dormitory style accommodation, and $30 per person per night for camping outside (swag, tent or self-provided caravan). Prices include great fellowship, an excellent kitchen, mess and lounge facilities and 24/7 pressured hot showers.
Unlike in previous years, attendees will NOT be required to pay a one-off surcharge.
For insurance reasons, Shelley Hunting Camp can only be attended by financial ADA members.
