Advocacy | Australian Deer Association


The ADA is the dominant voice for deer management and deer hunting in Australia. Over nearly five decades ADA has built a reputation for effective and consistent advocacy on behalf of Australia’s deer hunters and the wild deer they hunt.

In recent years ADA has formed strategic partnerships with like minded groups to ensure that we get the best results for the game hunting community.

Briefing politicians

ADA puts a lot of effort into regularly meeting with politicians across the country to make sure that our issues are well understood by the decision makers. We regularly produce briefing papers – an example below
