Welcome to Hunter District Hunting Club Inc.
Members using our club as a means to hold a Firearm License
If you want to use a hunting club as means for holding a Firearm license and Firearms, you must be a current member of a Hunting Club. If you join and use HUNTER DISTRICT HUNTING CLUB Inc. (HDHC Inc.) as a means for holding a Firearm License and Firearms, you are required to renew your membership with us on or before 1st February each year.
We are obligated as a Hunting Club to inform the FIREARM REGISTRY (FR) of all members that have and have not renewed their membership with us. Members that have not renewed are no longer members of HDHC Inc. (Membership starts on 1st February each year and ends on 1st February of the following year). The FR can then cancel your Firearm License and arrange for your weapons to be removed. The onus is on you to remain legal and within NSW and Commonwealth law.
Notice - If you are RENEWING your membership, please only click on RENEW MEMBERSHIP. If you are renewing and click on NEW MEMBERSHIP you will duplicate your membership and end up with a NEW MEMBER NUMBER, this will affect your registered number that you have with the Firearm Registry.
If you are a JUNIOR, you will have to pay the full membership fee from 01/02/2018, but you will recieve a subsidy when you shoot at a club shoot held at Cessnock Rifle Range.
