Collection schedule for North West Victoria

The Victorian Fox and Wild Dog Bounty is now digital

To streamline payment processes for fox and wild dog bounty participants, we have introduced an electronic bounty application system.

Registering is easy. Access the form at the top of our Bounty homepage and simply input your email and banking details.

The new system will not only ensure payment is quick and easy, but will also allow participants to keep track of bounty applications.

Over the coming weeks as we transition to a digital system, hunters will still have access to the paper-based system.

Please pre-register online, chat to our bounty collection staff on collections days or call the customer service centre on 136 186.

Bounty program update 25 February 2022

Victorian fox and wild dog collections will recommence from Monday 28 February 2022.

Collection centres will operate across the state in line with COVIDSafe requirements.

If you are attending a collection centre, you must comply with COVIDSafe requirements, including physical distancing and good hygiene practices.

Electronic funds transfer (EFT) is the preferred method of payment, so please bring your EFT details to the collection centre.

Stay safe by following the COVIDSafe requirements and, if you feel unwell, get tested and stay home.

Please check this page for the latest information, as the collection schedule is subject to change.

Acceptable entire fox scalps and entire wild dog body parts will be collected from eligible members of the public at specific dates and times, and from sites scheduled as collection centres.

Please note that no entire fox scalps or entire wild dog body parts will be accepted at any public counter or state government office. Collections will only be accepted at the designated times.

How collection centres have been selected

The number and location of collection centres are based several factors, including:

  • subscription rates observed during previous bounties in Victoria
  • desire to minimise administration costs to free up more funds for bounty payments.

The resulting network of collection centres has been produced to provide an evenly distributed coverage of access points across Victoria for eligible participants.
