It's not just the Coalition Against Duck Shooting that has objections to 
several new proposals for duck hunting in Victoria - the draft 2012 Wildlife 
(Game) Regulations. The RSPCA oppose them as does Environment Victoria, which 
is circulating a response, commenting on several important proposals, among 
*free duck shooting licences for 12-18 year olds
*the reintroduction of lead shot for women and children to use for shooting, and
*a new, 14-day shooting licence for international tourists who will not be 
required to pass the Waterfowl Identification Test The proposed changes can be

This is Environment Victoria's submission:

Please comment before 20 August. These new ideas are a doomed grab for country 
votes. They're a step back for all sorts of reasons, not least the danger to 
the environment of toxic lead shot. And kids being encouraged to use shotguns? 
It's hard to believe.
