This means from 6 September 2019:
- a NSW Game Hunting Licence is no longer required to hunt wild deer on private land
- you still require permission from the landholder and a firearms licence (if hunting with firearms) to hunt wild deer and other species on private land
- you still require an R-Licence and written permission to hunt wild deer and other approved species on public land in NSW
- affected G-Licence holders are eligible for a free upgrade to either a G-Licence endorsed for native game birds or an R-Licence (*training requirements apply). Pro-rata refunds are also available.
For more information on these changes, see the DPI Website Game Licensing announcement.
