Victorian yowie hunters

Unread post by GECKO » Mon Apr 13, 2020 11:22 pm

Hey all, im just wondering if theres many people in Victoria that like to walk the bush in search of the yowie? Im in the yarra valley and the only person i can take with me is my 4 year old so i dont ever go into thick terrain. At our farm i go looking with her but im more teaching her how to respect the bush and the animals aswell as making memories for her years after im gone. Just wondering if anyone would like to come up to noojee with me sometime to have a look. Had an experience there while looking for lace monitors and has made me feel a bit creeped out walking the bush alone, ive heard they are more likely to attack someone thats on there own. If theres any groups or anything I'd be keen to do a meet up. Tad boring being the only person i know that has an intrest.. cheers everyone

Look up the Victorian Yowie field Research Organization on Facebook. You might fine someone that would go out with you.

Gday Gecko , I live down Frankston way and go to the Noojee / Walhalla area all the time , if you want we could catch up and I can show you some stuff
that will make you say mmmmm , I too have converted my wife into a believer , I have found a fair few " structures" footprints inc some castable ones , heard
unexplainable vocalizations and the last time I was camping there I was seen off by some ( I mostly camp there alone ) . I am currently thinking about going for a hike up a small creek I have found .
Send me a pm if you are interested in catching up
Cheers Greg

Like Yowiedan said..... But at a later stage for sure! Right now the coppers are full of steam and on a massive power trip. Give it a while.

I too am from the Yarra ranges and keen to head out and research. Once the lockdown is over of course as I work with vulnerable people and need to keep social distancing measures in check for now.

But once all of this stuff is over id definitely be keen to grab a coffee or something and discuss finding some peeps/areas to research with and around? (claps hands)
