NSW has extended the suspension of certain deer hunting regulations until 2026, meaning hunters can take deer on private property (with landowner’s permission) without needing an R Licence.

Deer may now be hunted on private property and in state forests in NSW all year round, and electronic game callers are also permitted for use in state forests too.

Hunting in state forests will still require an R Licence and written permission from DPI.
