Find out about the Molesworth roar block system.

Molesworth ballot draw update

There will be no Molesworth ballot draw for 2021. Instead there will be a rollover of 2020 Molesworth roar permits to the 2021 roar season for only hunters that were affected by the COVID 19 lockdown. These were hunters in Period, 3, 4, and 5 of the 2020 roar.

If you were a successful 2020 Molesworth roar ballot block holder in period, 3, 4, or 5: We will email you to confirm that you want the block and date offered for the 2021 roar.

If you're unable to use the block, it cannot be transferred to friends or family or swapped with other hunters for a different date and/or block. The permit will be cancelled and offered to the next hunter on the previous ballot draw (2020 list) in the order they were drawn.


The 2021 roar permits will be emailed out in February 2021. Make sure your party information is correct with firearms licence, name, address, phone numbers, vehicle colour, make, model and registration asap.
