Isn’t it illegal in Victoria to hunt Sambar at night with spotlights or other night vision equipment?
I saw an ad in a magazine that offered guided night hunting in Victoria for Sambar deer with thermal imaging equipment provided, and that honestly sounds so shady.
Is this legal because it’s on private property? I see there’s an exemption on the GMA website for controlling pest animals with a spotlight. What’s the line between a pest deer and a game deer? Is there something you need to notify DELWP to get permission?
Or are they referring to pest animals as in rabbits, foxes & the lot?
