I hunt for Sambar deer a lot on the hounds in Victoria. The season is nearly at a close. There are restrictions on breed of dog, all dogs have to be registered and have tracking collars on them.
Dogs are only permitted in Most State forests, but not allowed in and National Park, Nature Resurve or Sanctuary.
Here is a pic of some of the dogs on my last hunt..
These are some of the dogs retrieved on the next day. I think we still had about 20 odd to gather in. 5 deer were shot weekend including a 28 inch stag.
