DPI Hunting is committed to ensuring the safety of hunters and that safe and responsible hunting practices are carried out across NSW.

DPI works closely with all key hunting stakeholders within the state, including NSW Police, the Forestry Corporation, local communities, hunters and land owners to implement these safe practices and provide safety awareness and education.

Strict licensing conditions and requirements, enforcement of hunting regulations and compliance measures and risk assessments also ensure safe hunting practices occur across NSW.
