I am assuming that this is only part of the NSW Government’s plan to eradicate 
environmental pest animals. I have not doubt the NSW Government will even up 
the balance somewhat by providing permits to hunters and shooters to “hunt and 
shoot” feral animals on private property where, surely, the majority of these 
feral animals live and breed.

This Qld Government fact sheet contains an interesting observation concerning 
controlling wild pigs by shooting:

Quote: “Ground shooting is not effective in reducing the pig population unless 
intense shooting is undertaken on a small, isolated and accessible population 
of pigs.”

Make of that what you will.
