An interesting and useful reference on the impact and management of duck
hunting in Victoria.

Loyn, R. (1991) Assessing and managing the impact of duck hunting in
Victoria - a new approach.  Wildfowl 42: 155-161.

Richard's summary on page one says in part:
"The kill of protected species had little impact on numbers of any species
except Freckled Duck.  The take of game ducks exceeded annual production
until 1990, when hunter numbers halved after introduction of a compulsory
video test of their ability to identify waterbirds.  Various other
management options have been introduced or considered as a part of a
general review."
