Participate in the National Recreational Hunting and Sports Shooting Survey 2019
Field & Game Australia has been asked to promote this research survey and encourage members to take the time to participate.
The Commonwealth Department of Health has commissioned RMCG to conduct the first national survey on the economic and social benefits of recreational hunting and shooting which follows similar studies in Victoria and New South Wales.
This is important and valuable research so please click the link and complete the survey. Share the link in your own circles and encourage other hunters and shooters to participate.
The research covers:
- the spending associated with recreational hunting and shooting
- the impact of recreational hunting and shooting on physical health
- social benefits of recreational hunting and shooting
People all over Australia will be able to take the survey over the next few weeks. The survey takes 15-20 minutes to complete.
A 2013 study found game hunting licence holders generated an economic impact (direct and indirect impacts of game and pest hunting) of $439 million in Victoria .
In NSW, the 2017 hunting economics survey found that recreational hunting by the 19,000 NSW game hunting licence holders accounts for $119 m of Gross State Product and 860 jobs within the NSW economy.
The 207,000 non-game licence holders account for between $446m and $1,366m of Gross State Product and between 3,932 and 11,572 jobs.
