We have recently had some extremely concerning news reach our ears from senior Liberal sources, that the Liberal party in Victoria at present is seriously considering adopting an ‘amend but not oppose’ approach to the Duck Hunting Ban Bill that has been introduced from Andy Meddick of the Animal Justice Party. This could mean that whilst they might amend the legislation in some meaningless way, they would abstain from voting against it. This would only leave the (presumably) Nationals as well as the SFFP and LDP to oppose such a bill.
However we need to keep in mind the recent news that the Labor party is seriously contemplating adopting a position to ban the time honoured cultural tradition. With the Victorian Labor conference over the weekend passing a motion calling for a ‘hunt review’. Of course we all know a ‘hunt review’ is just code for a ban on recreational duck hunting, something one of the backbenchers (MP Lizzie Blandthorn) has made exceedingly clear in her comment that “On the eve of 2020, it’s time to end this practice once and for all”.
This all might combine to mean the 2019 duck season is the last time Victorian shooters had the opportunity to enjoy some delicious freshly harvested waterfowl.
Now is the time to call, write to or email your local member in Victoria and strongly but politely let them know that if they do not oppose this outright that you will not be able to support them or their party in the next election. You can easily find your electorate and representative here.

only LDP or SFFP are worth voting for in any way shape or form anyway and even then by virtue of the documents that they have to sign to take their seat since gough whitlam even they are committing treason against the australian people by signing those documents. Hint: the difference lies between The Government Of The Commonwealth Of Australia and “THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT”. Does anyone know the difference?
This supposed ban on duck hunting IF allowed will be the thin edge of the wedge for all hunting sportsmen these anti people have an agende to get rid of hunting
THEN they will say we do not need our guns and that will be the beginning of trying to disarm the whole population
DUCK HUNTING has been going on in australia for 200 years we have not had ANY significant impact on duck numbers they always come back
AND ducks become vermin once they go onto the rice fields
There is too much notice taken by politicians of small minorities in this country
Grow up get a life and leave my duck hunting along
