SSAA Farmer Assist

The SSAA Farmer Assist program has been developed to enable farmers with wildlife management issues to seek pest control assistance from licensed and insured SSAA members.

The specially designed program is run via the Farmer Assist website, allowing a farmer to choose who they invite onto their properties from the group of members replying to their post. 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.

SSAA (WA) Members

If you are a current member of one of our SSAA Conservation & Wildlife Management (CWM) Branches, you can go straight to the registration page to sign-up for the SSAA Farmer Assist program. Your current SSAA CWM accreditation is recognised as being sufficient to cover the practical target assessment requirements of the program.

If you are not a current member of SSAA CWM, you are required to undertake the practical competency target assessment that is part of the registration process. The practical competency target assessment involves successfully shooting the approved SSAA Farmer Assist Assessment Target and getting the target signed off by a SSAA authorised range officer.

The practical competency target assessment can be undertaken at any suitable SSAA WA range. Please contact your local range directly to find out if they have the facilities and time to accommodate your needs. You are advised to contact your local range prior to attending to shoot the target so you know the appropriate time to arrive and what range fees may be applicable.

SSAA WA has provided a list of suitable ranges where interested members can shoot the assessment target. SSAA WA may also coordinate special assessment days at specific venues if demand exists. 

Please contact our CWM Officer for details of the ranges available
