The government has a proposal on the table which will see children as young as twelve able to hunt unsupervised on public land using bows and arrows, hunting dogs and bowie knives.
It is being driven by the state-subsidised hunting lobby group called the NSW Game Council.
This is yet another example of the government playing with the safety of the public by horse-trading with the fringe right-wing Shooters Party to create an unwanted pro-gun and hunting culture here in NSW.
This change is not yet law and the government has invited public submissions, so let them know your views on this extraordinary proposal.

If you are time poor, you can make a submission directly using the form mailer below.
