Hunting economic study

Estimating the economic impact of hunting in Victoria in 2013

A new study has found game hunting licence holders generated an economic impact (direct and indirect impacts of game and pest hunting) of $439 million in Victoria in 2013.

DEPI commissioned the study to obtain an accurate measure of the economic impact of hunting, which will be used to inform the Government's policy direction on hunting and game management.

The study measured expenditure on game and pest hunting by Victorian game licence holders using a survey, and was conducted by RM Consulting Group with EconSearch and DBM Consultants.
