Protecting hunting grounds

We're more than just a gun club

Field and Game Australia was first established in Victoria in 1958 as a Clay target, Conservation and Hunting Organisation. The name comes from “field sportsmen” and “game management” abbreviated to “Field and Game” and was formed by hunters who place a high value on swampland, which because of its unsuitability for agriculture was otherwise regarded, as useless.

They were concerned at the loss of wetland habitat as a result of draining and clearing for agriculture and the consequent loss of habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. As a result of its activities the then Bolte government cancelled the clearing and draining program and declared 180 State game reserves.

The Association’s habitat restoration and conservation efforts are recognised nationally as an outstanding example of voluntary “hands on” conservation with real habitat improvement outcomes.
