Hunting & COVID-19 Restrictions – The Facts

SSAA Victoria congratulates the Victorian Government for taking a more common sense approach to hunting and recreation more generally in the formulation of the latest Covid-19 restrictions.
The Association has advocated strongly on behalf of members during this entire crisis. The amendments to these restrictions recognise the reality that hunting is an inherently low-risk activity for the transmission of COVID-19.
· As a result, all hunters are permitted to leave their homes to participate in recreational hunting or pest control activities under the new restrictions.
· Those living in areas outside the Restricted Areas (Melbourne and Mitchell Shire) can continue their hunting activities as they have been doing since the last restrictions were lifted. They can stay overnight and travel anywhere within the non-restricted areas to hunt. They must not enter the Restricted Areas to hunt.
· Those living in Melbourne (Restricted Areas) may travel within the restricted area to hunt. You cannot leave restricted areas for exercise or recreation. Therefore you cannot leave the Restricted Area to hunt.
· You cannot stay away overnight from your principle place of residence.
· While this may preclude people from hunting in areas they normally would, they still have the opportunity to get out of the house for the day and enjoy a hunt.
· Members should refer to the Directions for specific information.
· Members are encouraged to display common sense and act responsibly when considering going hunting to help get this virus under control.

Immediate Shutdown of SSAA Victoria Eagle Park and Springvale Ranges and Training Courses.

It is with regret that SSAA Victoria will be temporarily closing the Eagle Park and Springvale ranges and cancelling all current Practical Firearms Training Program courses (PFSTP).   Like many organisations, SSAA Victoria received Department of Health directives this morning. After examining the 74-page document and receiving legal advice, it has been decided to enact these temporary stoppages.   SSAA Victoria has a duty of care to its members, staff and visitors. The Association has taken these steps in the best interests of the health and safety of all involved.   SSAA Victoria regrets any inconvenience these closures may cause.   Anyone who has registered and paid to attend a Practical Firearms Training Course will receive a refund. SSAA Victoria will reschedule course dates once the current restrictions are removed.   Further updates will be available on and SSAA Victoria social media pages.
