NT gov­ern­ment backs FGA

Field and Game - - RECOIL -

The first of the hun­ters and shoot­ers work­shops chaired by North­ern Ter­ri­tory Chief Min­is­ter Adam Giles oc­curred in mid-2015 and that en­gage­ment has been on­go­ing.

NT Field & Game used that ini­tial op­por­tu­nity to present a pa­per out­lin­ing a num­ber of prob­lems and pos­si­ble so­lu­tions. “To have the ear of the Chief Min­is­ter, Min­is­ters and Depart­ment heads in round ta­ble dis­cus­sions on how to im­prove the hunt­ing and shoot­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties within the North­ern Ter­ri­tory, for all users to en­joy, was not to be missed,” Pres­i­dent Gavin Love­lock said. By the third work­shop, a one-off com­mit­ment of $25 000 was made to tackle in­va­sive weeds, com­ple­ment­ing the suite of ini­tia­tives al­ready com­mit­ted.

The pro­ject will im­prove both habi­tat and hunt­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. The NT Gov­ern­ment's con­tin­ued sup­port for hunt­ing is ev­i­denced in re­cent let­ters to NT Field & Game.
