TAS Country : March 15th 2012
Bag limit of 10 for season's hunt LICENSED hunters are be- ing reminded of the rules on taking of wild duck during the hunting season which is now open and closes on June 11. Alistair Scott, general manager of Resource Man- agement and Conser- vation, with DPIPWE said only five species of water- fowl can be taken, with each hunter having a bag limit of no more than 10 wild ducks a day. ''Duck populations in Tasmania are subject to annual monitoring by DPIPWE and bag limits can be adjusted to ensure that the harvest is sustain- able,'' Mr Scott said. Hunters wanting to take wild ducks must have pas- sed a waterfowl identifi- cation test, have bought a game licence and have permission of the land- owner on whose land they are hunting.
