What is I Am Hunter?

If you came to I Am Hunter through a link, via a post on social media, or through a Google Search, you may be wondering what I Am Hunter is all about. 

As the name suggests, yes, it is all about hunting but unlike many hunting sites, I Am Hunter is designed for both hunter and non-hunter alike. 

If you’re an existing hunter, you’ll find lots of information about hunting methods and styles, as well as tutorials, videos and even short courses to help you learn new skills and better utilise the animals you hunt. 

If you’re interested in learning to hunt, but aren’t really sure where to start, you’ll find helpful information on how to apply for a firearms licence, as well as plenty of tutorials, videos and courses to help you learn the basics. 

If you’ve come here because you don’t agree with hunting, and cannot fathom a reason why anyone would kill animals ‘for fun’, you’ll find lots of information that explains why hunting still plays a vital role in modern society, and why a ban on hunting is not good for wildlife. 

Whatever your reason for coming to I Am Hunter, we hope that you will find the information that you are seeking. And if you don’t, then let us know and we’ll try to answer your questions. 

On a grander scale, I Am Hunter is the first phase of My Life On The Land, a brand new website being developed to help people pursue a more sustainable and self-sufficient way of life.

Our goal is to help people from all walks of life take greater interest and responsibility for the way that they live. 

We encourage people to grow, hunt, fish, forage or farm their own food; to eat nose-to-tail; to preserve, pickle and store fresh foods for the long haul; to learn basic life skills that ensure you’re prepared for any possibility; to slow down and savour life and impart these skills into the next generation to ensure they don’t become completely reliant on some global corporation for all their most basic needs. 

It doesn’t matter whether you live in a tiny, inner city studio or on thousands of acres, or off-the-grid in the middle of the bush, there are small ways that we can reduce our carbon footprint, decrease our food miles, and reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfill each year. 

Feel free to have a look around I Am Hunter, and when it’s live, My Life On The Land. Check out our articles and videos, as well as our tutorials and short courses.

Thank you all for going forward in creating such great content and a resource for hunters everywhere! I’ve been hunting for most of my life but I look forward to learning even more on improving my skills and finding more of what there is to offer for our great sport.

What you folks are doing for hunting here in OZ should be applauded. And I mean that sincerely. We are way too divided as outdoorsmen and women in this country and what you are doing is so awesome!

If you're into hunting like we are your going to love I AM HUNTER. Fantastic platform for all things hunting from gear reviews, videos, articles, tutorials, podcasts and even hunting advocacy. You can also grab some great discounts on gear from their brand partners. Bloody great work from this Aussie company.

Great people. Honest and open minded. Doing everything they can to create awareness about the many benefits derived from hunting. Fighting to improve stakeholders' perceptions of firearm owners whilst highlighting to sporting shooters the issues that we're currently facing.

Great work guys!

Great informative website from a passionate team that love the outdoors and show great respect when it comes to harvesting game in a safe, green, sustainable and respectful manner in a day where people have now lost contact from where their food comes from. The wider far left community that are trying hard to destroy our rights would be well informed by learning from this insightful media source!

A very informative page that everyone can enjoy, supports sustainable hunting and has great content.

You can see a genuine passion for what they do. And they have the courage to stand up for their beliefs. Looks like the young ladies have learnt all the right things from their Dad.

Hunting is good for the environment because the hunting community ensures that wildlife populations of game species are sustainable from one generation to the next. This requires that a diversity of natural habitats be kept intact, unpolluted, and undisturbed. Hunters support all these efforts. - so thanks to HuntShack for nurturing our future hunters
