Our Vision:

“Sustainable management of game animals and hunting for recreation, communities, commerce and conservation.”


The Game Animal Council is a national body undertaking management of hunting and game animals for the benefit of all stakeholders. It works cooperatively both within the hunting sector and, as importantly, with those outside the hunting sector. In being effective the GAC is openly communicative and democratic, with a sound structure and governance, backed by appropriate legislation and sufficient, sustainable funding. It is accountable to its stakeholders and produces better outcomes for them, is respected for its balanced advocacy based on good science and research and gives authoritative advice.
