RSPCA Pushing Bow Inquiry In South Australia

Comments Comments

The RSPCA is currently pushing the ban bow hunting agenda again. Once again over steping the mark on what is a legal practice in Australia. They are selling the campaign with the above picture and aim to have bow hunting banned across the country. 

The South Australian Government is now conducting an inquiry into bow hunting. Evidence based submissions should be submitted before the closing date of 9/4/2021

For the hunting community as a whole this is another attempt at killing our way of life and removing a legal and ethical form of hunting practice. Please circulate to all hunters and in particular bow hunters to ensure submissions are made to continue bow hunting as an ethical and legal activity.
