Hunting with Vehicles

Statistics have shown that the use of vehicles is a significant factor in the number of the people who are injured or killed whilst hunting.

You should NEVER HAVE A LOADED FIREARM IN A VEHICLE - see the previous section on SPOTLIGHTING.

It is against the law to have a loaded firearm in a populous place or on a public road, see current Victorian Legislation.

The practice of riding in the back of a utility, tray vehicle or a - bush basher - [vehicles with the roof cut off and no roll bars or seat belts.] is plain irresponsible.

Vehicles in the bush or paddocks often hit rocks, stumps hidden by grass and soft banks and inclines result in many vehicles rolling over.

MAKE SURE YOU AND YOUR PASSENGERS ARE SAFE BY ALWAYS WEARING A SEAT BELT.
