Rules

1 – FIREARM LICENCE

A current “open” firearms licence is required to hunt on private property.

2 – RESPONASABILITIES

It is the participants’ responsibility to comply with all regulations about firearm possession and use.

Please be aware that cull shooting is only allowed on private property; therefore any liability and insurance obligations all under the land owner and/or the firearms licensee.

2 – TARGETS

Our Fox Shoot is organized to reduce the numbers of FOXES, FERAL CATS and RABBITS, as they are considered the major pests in the area.

Please be aware that hunting in WA is limited to taking feral and pest animals on private property with the landowner’s permission.

A note on Kangaroo shooting in WA: in general, damage control permits (“tags”) are required to cull kangaroos in WA however in some agricultural zones (primarily in the South West land division) an open permit system has been declared by the Department of Agriculture where a specific damage control permit is not needed for a landowner or their nominated agent. If you decide to shoot Kangaroos, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have read the latest guidelines and that you understand the difference between the 3 main kangaroo types found in WA (Grey, Red and Euro).

The guidelines are published here

3 – POINTS SYSTEM

CAT – 5 points

FOX – 3 points

RABBIT – 1 point

No points will be assigned to defrosted carcasses.

2022 Fox Shoot and Community Breakfast are events organised by Yongergnow-Ongerup CRC and North Stirling Pallinup Natural Resource in collaboration with Bush Heritage, South Coast Natural Resources and Yongergnow Australian Malleefowl Centre.
