Frequently asked questions (FAQ’S)

WHO DO I CONTACT WITH OTHER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BALLOT?

The best way to ask questions is via the contact form on the bookings site. This will ensure that your query goes to the right person and gets answered promptly.

DO I NEED TO ATTEND THE BALLOT DRAW?

No. Most hunters don’t attend the draw and all hunters who are drawn are contacted by email. The draw is open to the public to give confidence in its integrity and to provide a great social evening for hunters. The draw is also streamed live on the Blond Bay Hog Deer Facebook page.

I DIDN’T GET A CONFIRMATION EMAIL

Please check your spam filters. If the money has been deducted from your bank account your entry has been successfully entered. 

DOES SSAA VICTORIA RUN THE BALLOT?

No. The ballot is run by an independent group of hunters, the Blond Bay Hog Deer Advisory Group (BBHDAG). Membership of the BBHDAG comprises independent hunters who are also members of ADA, SSAA, GDSA, and FGA.

DOES AN ENTRY GUARANTEE ME A HUNT?

No. An entry gets you into the ballot draw. Your chances of getting drawn are typically somewhere around five per cent.

IF I ENTER FOR RIFLE HUNTING CAN I SWITCH TO BOWHUNTING…AND VICE VERSA?

Yes, if you have a shooters licence we ask that you enter that on entry. Drawn hunters have the option of using any legal method of take (firearm or bow) or could even take both on the hunt.

CAN I ENTER MORE THAN ONCE?

No – it is one entry per hunter. Data is checked before going into the draw and anyone with multiple entries forfeits all entries.

CAN I ENTER FOR A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER?

Yes, you can put in an entry for someone else, but, hunts are not transferrable – ID is checked to ensure the person who is drawn is the person who takes the hunt. Note that only one entry is allowed per email address.

CAN JUNIORS ENTER?

Yes, if they are drawn they will need to be licenced and accompanied on the hunt by a fully licensed adult.

CAN I GIVE MY HUNT TO A FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND?

No, hunts are not transferrable. If you get drawn and cannot take your position it will be re-allocated by the advisory committee.

IF I AM DRAWN CAN SOMEONE COME WITH ME?

Yes, all hunts are conducted on public reserves. A friend or family member can accompany you and assist at camp etc. but they cannot assist in your hunt.

IF I GET DRAWN WILL SOMEONE HELP WITH WHERE AND HOW TO HUNT?

Yes. The BBHDAG works with the ADA to run a specific education weekend for ballot entrants.
