Duck season considerations

The following presentation was developed by the Game Management Authority for the purpose of sharing information among government agencies and key stakeholders on issues that could affect the 2018 duck season.

Information in the attached presentation was current as of 8 December 2017.


The GMA invited several peak representative bodies with an interest in duck hunting, bird conservation and animal welfare to make a submission on whether they believe that the 2018 duck season should be varied from the prescribed arrangements in the Wildlife (Game) Regulations 2012 and why.

Submissions were to be based on key environmental parameters only and the information was used to assist the GMA Board in forming a view and making recommendations to the Minister on duck season arrangements.

The submissions received through this invitation process are attached bellow.
