This is a draft of new regulations governing game hunting in Victoria. Among 
several proposals is that a new, short-term hunting licence for international 
tourists be issued. In the case of duck shooting, applicants will not be 
required to pass the Waterfowl Identification Test.
It is also proposed that juniors be exempt from paying game licence fees, and 
that the season to hunt red deer be extended to the whole year - from the 
current two-month season. 
These are retrograde steps which we should view with alarm. Public submissions 
will be accepted until 20 August. 
See link for further details.
