I had a break for about ten yrs. I just wasn’t interested for a while. The paperwork for a new licence was hell And the initial pta wait was tough. And getting places to hunt again has been hard work But now I’m just sort of rolling with it all and really enjoying the bush again

Yeah the application process is unreal, seven weeks and waiting...I called them and and was told it could be another three, and then I'll have to wait another 28 fays or so for the PTA ..I'm wondering if the staff cut at the NSWFAR was deliberate act to annoy people. They dont realise we have infinite patience, and the crims will just find illegal firearms or alternate weapons. Waste of good peoples time, Meanwhile the rabbits are doing a bloody conga line.

When I did my licence application online I def got the vibe it was made complicated on purpose to encourage people to give up And there were times I felt like doing that. I really had to dig in and persevere.....it has been worth the wait. Now that I have rifles and a licence I can go hunting legally anytime I want to

In the process of getting my licence also in Qld. Just completed the ID check. Is it usually smooth sailing from there? Dont want to bolt my safe down and then get rejected.
