Lake Elizabeth closed to duck hunting

Friday, 15 March 2019

The Victorian Government is closing Lake Elizabeth near Kerang for the beginning of the 2019 duck hunting season to protect a significant population of freckled ducks found on the lake.

The closure will be in place for seven days during which time it will be monitored to determine if it will remain closed to hunting for a longer period.

If the numbers of freckled duck decline substantially then it will be recommended to be reopened to hunting.

Details of the 2019 duck season, and information about any wetland closures throughout the season, are available on the GMA website.
