Hunting plays an important role in the ecology and culture of the Australian landscape. For more than 40 thousand years, people on this continent have hunted and in the short time since 1788 the introduction of exotic species has dramatically changed the lay of the land.

Now, large populations of exotic animals have a harsh impact on the Australian environment. Australian native animals do not have the hard hoofs common in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas and it is important that exotic populations are controlled in order to protect native fauna and flora.

Hunting is strictly controlled in all Australian states and territories and Smiths Outdoors is committed to the safety of people and the ethical dispatch of animals.
