The Hunt Smart® System BOOK Success Stories

This book is the culmination of almost forty years studying Sambar.

Our new book ‘The Hunt Smart System ™’ is presented in chronological order just as I teach it on my highly successful Hunt Smart® course. In fact I designed this book to replace our Hunt Smart course when I was no longer conducting it. ‘The Hunt Smart System ™’ is a complete A-Z reference which shows you how to find sambar at any time of the day, in any weather, at any temperature, in any level of hunting pressure, at any elevation, no matter where they are - on the farm fringe at 200 metre elevation, in the back country at 450 metres or in the subalpine between 1500 to 1650 metres.

Success Story #5



Hi Errol, my name is Brent Bovell. My wife Eleanor purchased your entire collection of books for me over Christmas just gone after I was hospitalized after a work accident, I have read them and they have taught me more about deer hunting, than anything I have watched or read before. I didn't think I would be able to hunt for sambar again after I did my back, but thankfully I have been out hunting then since and trying to incorporate as much knowledge I can that you have given me in your books. I have seen more deer in my last 2 trips than in the past decade and I harvested a nice mature hind only days ago, whilst I was hunting in a "zone of silence" as you would say. Thank you very much. I will be trying to book into one of your courses as soon as I can to get even more knowledg… ...



George Grelak - Hunt smart system book Success Story #4

G'day Lynne and Errol, It was a pleasure to talk to you both today. I'd like to stress that everything I said during our telephone conversation was not a compliment but a true statement of fact.

Your books on Sambar have no equal anywhere in the world, due to the amount of the knowledge (which you convey extremely well), due to the breathtaking photographs and their aesthetic appeal. There’s only one criticism of the books I can offer. They are too cheap. You’ve undersold your expertise and your very hard work. Regards, George Grelak Read Full Story >>

Oleg Kozlov - Sambar Deer Success Story
I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing book "HSS" and a hard work on it. I bought it, read it carefully, planned a hunt and saw the deer during the first hunt in my life (07 Mar 21) and harvested a Sambar hind during a second hunt in state forest (dd. 02 Apr 21)...

I also found a wallow because I applied a knowledge of Sambars (which I got from your book). My friends hunters were impressed… I made a lot of mistakes before getting license. Assumed that pushed through a bush, walking them up strategy and changing places would help me to find Sambars (did that during scouting in bush while waited for license and PTA). Then I got your book and mindset was changed. Oleg Kozlov Read Full Story >>

Jason Cottam - Sambar Deer Success Story
After taking up Sambar hunting a few years ago I’ve seen many but never been able to successfully harvest one, even though I have come close many times. Hence the recent purchase of your book - The Hunt Smart System ™.

Last Sunday when I returned from yet another unsuccessful hunt your book had arrived, so I grabbed a beer and started reading. Each night I’ve been carefully digesting it and reflecting on the many hunts I’ve had these past years. After reading the first 145 pages I applied what I had learnt to a hunt planned for yesterday. I mapped out the wagon wheel, and identified where the deer would most likely be at first light, and where I should be. I’m guessing by now you know what the outcome of yesterday’s hunt was. A huge thank you Errol. Oh how my tale of woe has changed in a week.  Jason Cottam, Mitcham VIC Read Full Story >>

Chris Bordin - Hunt smart system book Success Story #1

I've just finished reading The Hunt Smart System ™ by Errol Mason. 400+ pages and it pretty much tells you where and when you will find deer.

I put what I learnt to the test today. Got within 60m of a sitting deer (sambar) until 2 wallabies sent it running. Well worth the read and highly recommend it. Read Full Story >>
