graph showing most Victorians want duck shooting banned and the strongest support for a ban came from regional Victoria

A poll by uComms has highlighted significant regional support for a ban on duck shooting.


The poll of 1031 regional and metro residents in early 2021, highlighted the majority support a ban, with the strongest support for a ban coming from regional Victoria.

The poll also showed:

  • Most holiday makers from metro areas would be put off holidaying in an area where there was shooting

  • Over 60% of both city and country respondents said they would feel unsafe undertaking other recreational activities where shooting takes place.

  • More voters would be more likely than less likely to vote Labor if duck shooting was banned

  • The premier is already viewed less favorably in regional areas than metro and his support of duck shooting paints him less favourably than favourably.
