TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House the absence of legislation allowing for hunting of feral game in Queensland’s State Forests. Such schemes are in place in NSW and Victoria and these have proven to be both safe and successful. The NSW scheme requires recreational hunters to complete additional accreditation and licensing and this too has proven an effective means of controlling and monitoring the public participation in the scheme whilst qualifying the suitability of hunters for public land access. Targeted feral species could include deer, goats, pigs, foxes, feral dogs and feral cats.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to propose a 3-year trial of recreational hunting in Queensland’s State Forests and to establish a “Restricted Game License” scheme, similar to that which is already in place in NSW.
