You will require this licence if you intend to hunt species of introduced game or feral animals on declared public land or private property for commercial purposes (with the intention of selling the harvested meat). Game and feral animals include, but is not limited to:
- wild deer such as sambar and fallow
- game birds (other than native game birds) such as California quail and pheasant
- feral animals such as pigs, foxes and rabbits
- ducks under the game bird management program.
The licence you will be granted is dependent on the type of animal you intend to hunt, the land you intend to hunt on and the reason for hunting the animal. There are two types of licence:
- Restricted commercial licence (R-licence): required if you intend to hunt game and feral animals on declared public land or private property.
- General commercial licence (G-licence): required if you intend to hunt game animals on private property.
You will require the permission of the property owner to hunt on private property. In addition, to hunt on declared public land, you will require written permission from the relevant land manager.
You must also purchase wild deer tags from the Agency before harvesting any deer. Tags must be attached to all species immediately after harvesting.
