Wilsons Promontory Hog Deer Control

Parks Victoria, in partnership with the Australian Deer Association, Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (Vic Branch) and the Game Management Authority, conducted a trial Hog Deer control program at Wilsons Promontory National Park between 18-20 August 2015.

The program seeks to build knowledge and understanding of the impact of the population of Hog Deer on the Prom, its habitat and endangered and vulnerable plant species within the park.  It was developed to ensure everything is being done to protect and preserve the health of Wilsons Promontory and that it remains a world-class national park and tourism attraction.

The  reports which summarise the data collected during the control programs can be found in the harvest report section of the GMA website.
