Australian Hunter

The Australian Hunter is Australia’s favourite hunting magazine. Published quarterly, it aims to create a better environment and community understanding of all forms of hunting, as well as provide hunters with up-to-date news and product information. It caters for hunters of all persuasions, including those who hunt for animal management, trophies and of course, for the family table.

Australian Hunter includes a range of hunting stories on all manner of game, from small game such as rabbits and foxes, right up to the world’s largest and most dangerous animals. Being the Australian Hunter, much of the magazine is dedicated to hunting in this country, however it also includes adventures and advice about hunting in other parts of the world too.

The magazine features firearm, knife and general product reviews from experienced hunters and outdoor enthusiasts, as well as practical advice for choosing and using these tools in the field. It also includes camp kitchen and game meat recipes and reader competitions.
