Duck hunting now Coalition policy in NSW

Media Release:  22 November 2012

Legislation authorising increased duck hunting on private land has now passed the NSW upper house with the full in principle support of the O'Farrell government. It is certain to pass the lower house later today.

Greens NSW MP and Firearms spokesperson David Shoebridge said:

"What was originally a duck hunting bill from the minor Shooters and Fishers Party has been embraced and adopted wholeheartedly by the O'Farrell government.

"The pro-hunting Game Council will now be licensing duck hunters in NSW.

"The O'Farrell duck hunting scheme expands the former Labor government's 'game bird mitigation' program and will see thousands of our native animals being killed and wounded for sport," Mr Shoebridge said.
