Duck and quail open seasons
There are duck and quail hunting seasons each year in South Australia where hunters are permitted to take specific species.
The duration of the seasons and the type and number of species that can be hunted is managed by the Department for Environment and Water.
To hunt duck and quail during an open season, hunters must:
- obtain a duck and quail hunting permit which includes successfully completing a Waterfowl Identification Test
- follow the open season’s hunting restrictions.
For information about the duck and quail open seasons, including what permits are required visit the Department for Environment and Water’s website.
Hunting report cards
To help determine the sustainable hunting guidelines for future hunting seasons CHASA has initiated a hunting report card to collect information on the type and number of waterfowl species that are bagged during the open seasons. The results are collected each year and given to the Department for Environment and Water.
To provide your open season’s data please download the hunting report card and send it to us so we can forward it to the department (your personal information will not be given).
