Dear B-A,

I have been having a look at the Game and Feral Animal Control Bill 2012$FILE/b2011-163-d18-House.pdf
   (I am laid up in bed with a broken ankle and bored)

The Bill lists those NSW National Parks  and Nature Reserves etc. from which 
hunters will be excluded. Funnily enough all off the NPs & NRs around the 
Sydney metro areas have been declared off limits to hunters (see Schedule 3A, 
Sec 20A, pp 11-12). It seems that every other bit of NPWS land in the state 
will be open.

I wonder how long it will be before our little Nimrods will be going for the 
right to pursue game onto private land, as they are allowed in France and other 
European countries. I can tell you that it in a trifle un-nerving to have a mob 
of half-cut hunters (alcohol and gunpowder are often mixed over there) charging 
through your vege garden on a Saturday afternoon, as my ex & I have experienced.
