Hunting

Hunting in WA is limited to taking feral and pest animals on private property with the landowner’s permission.

Only a current “open” firearms licence is required to hunt on private property. There is no hunting permit or fee applicable. The following animals are some of the feral species that can be regularly taken in Western Australia: Rabbits, hares, foxes, pigs, wild dogs, goats, camels, donkeys, wild horse and wild cattle.   


Does SSAA (WA) have Paid Hunting Holiday Properties?

No.Some of our Clubs, Widji Bandi Sports Association of WA Inc for example,do offer hunting holidays though. Please go to  our Clubs page for more information.

Our Conservation and Wildlife Management Groups have stringent training and assessment programs for applicants.

SSAA Farmer Assist

The SSAA Farmer Assist program has been developed to enable farmers with wildlife management issues to seek the assistance of members.

SSAA members who participate in this program have all achieved a skill competency equivalent to professional shooter training and have committed to operating under a code of practice that demands safety, animal welfare and ethical behaviour.

Red Card for Rabbits and Foxes Community Fox Shoots

Red Card for Rabbits and Foxes is a community based feral animal management program that operates across the agricultural regions of Western Australia.  SSAA (WA) is a proud sponsor of these events, donating $5 for every cats and fox culled during the events. Last year we donated nearly $13000 to the Regional Men’s Health Initiative.

Local coordinators take on the role as volunteers, and they engage, assist and support land managers to bait and shoot foxes and rabbits on their own properties, with the assistance of a central coordinator.
