Victoria has not seen a full duck season since 2018 with the season shortened to 64 days in 2019, 38 days in 2020 and just 20 days in 2021. Mr Bull said an appropriately regulated and conducted duck season represents a sustainable activity that delivers tremendous economic benefit to regions like East Gippsland.

Duck hunting is a sustainable and highly popular recreation in Gippsland, delivering an array of regional economic and social benefits, if Labor cancels duck season would be a disastrous blow to our local tourism and recreational businesses

Preserve and protect wetlands

Mr Bull said, "Duck shooting is an immensely popular recreational activity in Gippsland that sees shooters inject enormous amounts of revenue into our economy. It's an activity that brings families and friends together out in nature with the added economic benefits of supporting our local business and tourism sectors."

"Over the past four years we have seen the state Labor Government chase inner-city green votes at the expense of those who enjoy a legal recreational activity and the regions that benefit from it."

"Those who participate in duck season understand better than anyone the need to ensure waterfowl numbers and habitats are preserved so that duck season can continue to be enjoyed for generations to come. Anyone can see the valuable work organisations like Field and Game Australia do to preserve and protect our wetlands in East Gippsland." Mr Bulls concluded.
