Jackals Hide consists of 5,000 acres of soft river flats and rises into rugged hills. Beautiful Tenterfield Creek carves its way through the middle of Jackals Hide, and has good stocks of Murray Cod and Yellow Belly. As a bowhunting only property, Jackals Hide gives bowhunters quality game to chase. Fallow & Rusa deer, wild pigs, trophy goats, foxes, feral cats, wild dogs and rabbits can all be found inside its boundaries.
We are a sheep farming enterprise and bow hunting is very important to the business:
Certain species of feral/wild animals are highly destructive to ovine: Wild dogs attack and kill the sheep, pigs and foxes kill and devour the lambs. Through years of trial and error, we have found game archery to be the most effective, safe and convenient method of control. Today bow hunting and our very specific primary industry go hand in hand on the sheep station. Although the days of the State's wild dog scalp bounty legislation have long since passed, much of the income produced from bow hunting on Jackals Hide we return to hunters through our own private bounty system (use the contact us form or enquire within for rewards paid for the effective despatch of canines).
The management and staff of Jackals Hide would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your families and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.
There are a number of picturesque camp sites around the property catering for the camping beginner, or you can find your own for the more experienced.
At Jackals Hide we are a bowhunting only property and firearms are strictly prohibited. Bowhunting takes superior skills, practice and patience. However, the reward of taking game with a bow is a lifetime memory.
At Jackals Hide, we take our resources very seriously, so that everyone visiting the property can enjoy the thrill of fishing now and into the future.
We maintain a strict ‘catch and release’ philosophy.
This means, catch your fish, admire them, take photos, and then gently release them back into the wild - Rule does not apply to European Carp!
Hunting, fishing, camping and hiking, seeking rarely ventured places (like the secluded waterhole [pictured] in Unnamed Creek) is an Australian past time enjoyed by generations, and Jackals Hide is a great place to do just that. Whether you bring out the whole family or a few mates, plenty of great times and memories have been had camping out in the Australian bush.
