Game hunting in Victoria
A range of popular, licensed hunting activities are available in Victoria.
In 2013, hunters generated an estimated economic impact (direct and indirect impacts of game and pest hunting) of $439 million in Victoria.
The department plays a coordination and policy role for game hunting, working closely with the Game Management Authority (GMA), the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and Parks Victoria.
The GMA regulates game hunting in Victoria. Visit the Game Management Authority website for all information regarding how, where and when to hunt game legally in Victoria.
