It is a condition of your Hunting Licence that you complete your Hunting Licence Take Return for the previous season. The return is due by the 30th November to ensure you receive a Reissue Application Form in January for the upcoming open seasons.
Until we receive your Hunting Licence Take Return, there will be a block on your capacity to be reissued with a Hunting Licence.
Even if your take was zero, you must record a zero take against the game species you purchased a licence to hunt, excluding wallaby.
More information about Hunting licences is available via the Hunting Licences page.
Options for providing your Hunting Licence Take Return:

If you have several species listed under your Hunting Licence that require you to provide a take return or if you have purchased a Fallow Deer licence, please provide your Hunting Licence Take Return only after you have finished hunting for the year.
If you need to vary the details you have provided in your Hunting Licence Take Return please contact Wildlife Services or submit your revised Hunting Licence Take Return to the address detailed on the form with a cover letted explaining the reason for variation.
**Please note: Applications for a Hunting licence commence from the 1st of February each year.**
