Hunting Victoria

Hunting Victoria

(p.85) Chapter Six Hunting Victoria
All Things Harmless, Useful, and Ornamental

Pete Minard

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter discusses Australians’ attitudes towards the history of game hunting, giving insight to the complicated relationships among agricultural development, environmental degradation, and imperial recreational activities. Game acts established by the ASV show the issue of traditional game hunting, protection of animals, and decrease in food. The history of game legislation shows that hunting in Victoria was shaped by British sporting traditions, gold rush assertions of common property in game, concerns about declining native game numbers, and protecting the colonial food supply.

Keywords:   history of game hunting, agricultural development, environmental degradation, imperial recreational activities, legislations, game act, British sporting traditions, gold rush, colonial food supply
