Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has advised that to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), you must not leave home to go hunting.
This restriction is in accordance with the emergency powers arising from the declared state emergency under the Stay at Home Direction and Restricted Activity Direction until 13 April 2020.
Victoria has some of the best game hunting opportunities in Australia. There are generous open seasons and bag limits for game deer, duck and quail and about 8 million hectares of public land available for hunting. When you are out enjoying Victoria's great hunting opportunities it is important to remember your obligations to not only comply with the law, but to behave responsibly to protect our valuable resources and the reputation of hunting.
