Peter Walsh MP:
2021 Duck Season

Letter of support for the rights of legitimate hunters.

Dear Editor,

Sustainability is key for Victorias tens of thousands of responsible, legitimate hunters.

Whether its maintaining wetlands or complying with strict rules and regulations to ensure future sustainability of game species, Victorian hunters willingly do whats needed to ensure a healthy environment and the future of their favourite past time.

This includes years of work by Field and Game members to revitalise and manage more than 3000 acres of wetland at Gippslands Heart Morass for all to enjoy.

Hunting also generates $356 million for our state, supports thousands of jobs and brings families out to regional Victoria for a weekend away.

But this is not a convenient reality for those groups who would rather see hunting banned entirely.

The Liberal Nationals strongly support Victorias thousands of law-abiding, legitimate hunters.

In contrast, the Andrews Labor Government has slowly but surely chipped away at the rights of Victorian hunters since it was elected.

The Victorian Government will soon make a determination on the 2021 duck season.

After bushfires and the coronavirus pandemic, but now with a wet winter and spring the Liberal Nationals are calling for a full 2021 season.

This will not only provide confidence for hunters, but also deliver a healthy boost in spending thats so desperately needed in our regional economies.

Peter Walsh
Leader of The Nationals
Shadow Minister for Agriculture
