Welcome to Hunter District Hunting Club Inc.
The Hunter District Hunting Club Inc. (HDHC Inc.) was formed in December 1996, and has over 3000 members from more than 58 post codes. As well as Hunting we are also a Target shooting and Firearm Collecting Club, firearms licence categories ABCH.
HDHC Inc. can arrange a firearms safety test for you if required.
We carry our own Public Liability ($10,000,000) and Directors Insurance.
A lot of our work is carried out by volunteers; this has assisted in keeping our members fees modest.
We have also managed to keep junior membership free (juniors - under 18 years of age).
Over many years we have had a close association with local clubs, on designated days our members have use of the following Cessnock ranges:-
Cessnock Pistol Club (.22 range), Cessnock Clay Target Club, Cessnock Rifle Club and Wyong Pistol Club(.22 range). (See events calendar)
We also organise prize shoot days at all these ranges, plus our members are welcomed at Newtec Pistol Club and Wyong Pistol Club for .22 rimfire rifle shooting.
Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Our AGM is held at Cessnock Supporters Club on the last Tuesday of October.
For many years members have supported the Hunter Medical Research Institute with donations for research into children’s cancer. A representative from Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) attends to speak and receive a cheque on behalf of HDHC Inc. member donations; this cheque is given annually to aid HMRI’s research into children’s cancer.
HDHC Inc. would like to thank all our members for their continued donation to this worthwhile research and donations to the club.
We are now in our 20th year of operation and have, with careful management, been able to assist our local firearm clubs with upgrades to their facilities.
