Hunting opportunities include:

Hog Deer

The annual season occurs during the month of April, which is timed to minimise impact on breeding productivity. Victoria is one of the few places where wild populations of Hog Deer can be hunted free-range on public land.

More information on licenses and other regulations can be found here:

Game Duck

Excellent duck hunting is available during the hunting season. Always make sure you are up to date with what species can be hunted as this changes every year and heavy fines are imposed on those who do not comply.

Stubble Quail

Jake Smith Lake State Game Reserve is one of only 16 reserves in Victoria where Stubble Quail are allowed to be hunted. Hunting regulations change all the time. Check out this great Victorian Government resource for the last hunting information for Stubble Quail:
