Hunting

WIT - (Waterfowl Identification Test) Training and Test Sessions

Passing the Waterfowl Identification Test is a prerequisite for obtaining a game licence to hunt ducks in Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales and Tasmania. If you get your WIT in Victoria, it is recognised in those states as well (although you will still have to obtain the necessary licences and permits for that state).

FGA Training and Test sessions offer a little extra education and guidance for those wanting to learn more about waterfowl identification and hunting. Here's details on upcoming training and test sessions (please note, bookings are essential as tests may not run if there are not enough spots booked before it starts).
