If you’re heading up to the Brindabellas anytime soon, maybe take at least two of the following items:

  • A very bright red hat
  • A high visibitliy vest, or
  • A bullet proof vest
  • A very good first aid kit…

Here’s where NSW Hunters will be able to hunt now…

What’s Your opinion?

I’m very happy for responsible well-trained shooters to rid our parks of feral animals (including, as someone said, the feral horses in the Snowy Mountains).

My concern is the trigger happy morons. Damned if I know how we can control them.

This is a troll right? I know I’m not supposed to be abusive on this forum, but I’m finding it hard to resist the urge.

Once again OP I suggest knowing before commenting. I can understand how some people might find this sort of thing confronting, but why not ask some questions to inform yourself before airing your irrational and childish views.

I’ve held an R licence since the inception of the program, and you would no doubt be surprised where this program has been operating – without incident or issue. That’s okay though – no thanks required for my efforts in trying to keep our environment one step ahead of the invasive species.

If you are seeking intelligent dialogue regarding this initiative then I suggest a different approach is required.

I couldn’t care less about the hunting in the forests. It’s the loons that wave them about in our local grocery stores and service stations that scare me the most. Get your priorities right richiedt.

My family owned a property down at Shannon’s Flat for many years. It was (literally) on the NSW/ACT border. We spent a lot of time shooting wild pigs, foxes, rabbits, dogs and cats over a period of 30+ years. On our side of the fence was private NSW property. On the other side was Namadgi National Park.

And wouldn’t you know it … not a single human was shot in 30+ years. Not even a tofu-eating animal-libber wearing a tin foil hat.

Doesn’t bother me, as long as gun control is maintained. Thats the main concern I have with the gun lobby. Hopefully it never gets the same amount of power it has in the USA.

How are we going to protect our freedoms from a tyrannical government if we’re not allowed to keep our SLRs?

Can’t go letting people have silenced arrows.

Is he talking about the arrows with the little ultrasonic whistle built into the end which wars Kangaroos they’re coming so they can get out of the way?

I’m sure that if the anti-everything lobby (ACT Greens and Labor) had their way, all archers would have to set up a 500 m exclusion zone and yell bang as they fired..

Really, the proximity of highly controlled and full regulated hunting activities to the border of the ACT is your primary concern? You do realise that there are several public firearm ranges, military firearm/ordinance ranges, private properties which regular hunting activities take place, government employed shooters/hunts, let’s not forget unsilenced/unregulated archery activities which all take place within the blessed ACT; all of which take place without incident on a daily basis?

Hey. Don’t you DARE go injecting common sense and factual information into a topic designed to stir the emotion of the ignorant.
That’s incredibly unfair of you, taking advantage of a persons shortcomings like that.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
The correct response is to use these facts to display the hightened risk that Canberrans are ALREADY exposed to and now we’re surrounded by these potentially life threatening activities.

Get your act together man. Logic and commonsense have no place in this discussion.

You forgot the two most important items:

A tinfoil hat and a tofu sandwich.

Smart move by the NSW Govt.

Us hunters have been hunting feral animals in the state parks, under a strictly controlled game council scheme, which requires licencing, hunter training, having to book a forest in advance, and acquire written permission, without issue for years, now the state govt gets free pest control in the nat parks.

makes great sense

Not to mention that recreational hunting has taken place in the Alpine NP in Victoria since the mid 1980’s.

I would suggest that the majority of hunters in the ACT region (under new or old laws) are probably either ACT residents or work here and live over the border for life style reasons.
