Hunters under attack

DUCK season opening weekend brings thousands of Victorian hunters and their families into regional Victoria every year. But the huge boost they provide to our regional economies is under threat because the Victorian government continues to push its anti-hunting agenda.

Daniel Andrews and Jaala Pulford appear to be undermining the credibility of the Game Management Authority (GMA) by refusing to adequately support it. Strong enforcement requires a multi-agency response to ensure the small number of people who choose to break the rules face the full force of the law. Instead, Daniel Andrews and Jaala Pulford are using the GMA as a scapegoat to explain Labor’s failure to stand up for Victoria’s more than 130,000 recreational and professional hunters.

Duck hunting is a legitimate recreational activity, but Victorian hunters are being penalised by a Labor government desperate to keep the Greens on side.
