Voluntary hunter survey
Hunters are encouraged to complete the 2022 voluntary hunter survey for the open season by 1 September 2022. This survey provides useful information on the abundance of particular species that can provide indications of waterfowl population and distributions. This can provide valuable data to inform the declaration of future open seasons. See link to survey here.
