Aerial Deer Shooting – Bogong High Plains – March/April 2022
REMINDER – Parks Victoria will be conducting aerial shooting operations on the Bogong High Plains and Mt Bogong areas in the Alpine National Park, over the next few weeks:
Parks Victoria’s will be aerial shooting in the Alpine National Park, around the Bogong High Plains, from the 28th March to the 1st April, and from the 4th April to the 8th April.
The aim of this program is to reduce deer activity around significant environmental values that are vulnerable to deer impacts, including alpine wetlands.
The areas that will be targeted will be closed (see attached map). The majority of walking tracks and visitor sites will remain open. There are some Management Vehicle Only tracks that will be closed (Moncrieff’s Gap Track, East Kiewa Firetrail, Little Bogong Track, Ropers Track, Mt Arthur Firetrail, Spion Track, Junction Spur Track, Red Fox Track, lower part of Big River Firetrail).
During aerial shooting, you may see helicopters and hear gunshots.
Suitably qualified and experienced contractors have been engaged to deliver the work. They follow all relevant legislation, Codes of Practice and Standard Operating Procedures to ensure that high standards of animal welfare are maintained during operations.
