The property owners love a chat - so take the time to ask the property owner about the best hunting spots and their guideline to enjoy your stay - and keep in their good books. They have a wealth of knowledge to share.
The facilities sleeping quarters are really good with 4 seperate bedrooms, toilet, shower, cooking quarters and drinking water. Bring your swags, mattresses are supplied. You don't need to bring any firewood - there is already plenty on the property to collect.
You can sight in your firearms on the property, but the property owner requests that you do this right away from the camp.
The owner hates hunters leaving dead game near or in dams. This obviously effects the drinking water for other livestock and animals - so dont do this. Also don't leave your rubbish laying around. Contain your rubbsih, ask the property owner where to dispose of it - or take your rubbish home with you.
If you bring your family, there are dogs and pigs the family can feed - the property is great for relaxing and enjoying the great outdoors - very neat and tidy property.
