All other arrangements remain unchanged.  The Game Hunting Victoria App will be updated shortly to reflect the season modifications.

Hunters are reminded that only non-toxic shot can be used to hunt ducks anywhere in Victoria.  

Please check the GMA website closer to the beginning of the season to see if wetlands have been closed to hunting.
