Licencing

Anyone hunting game in Victoria must hold a current Game Licence. The Game Licence must be endorsed for the type(s) of game that you wish to hunt and only permits you to hunt that game in Victoria.

Hunters should carry their licence on them at all times while hunting.

A range of licence types are available, depending on the requirements of the individual hunter.

Game Licences enable the Game Management Authority to enforce the hunting laws, track trends in hunting demands and identify the needs of hunters. Licensing also provides an avenue to communicate important information to licensed hunters.
