Bowhunting - Wild Goats - Bowhunting is a type of archery where bows (compound, longbow or recurved) and arrows with a ‘broadhead’ are used to hunt land game animals.

Bowhunting is a notoriously cruel pursuit; clean and quick deaths resulting from a broadhead arrow penetrating the heart or major blood vessels are rare. Most animals will be initially wounded and then die hours, days or even weeks later from haemorrhaging or infections.

Tasmania is the only jurisdiction where bowhunting is illegal. On mainland Australia, it is legal to bowhunt declared game or pest animals on private property (provided appropriate permission has been granted) and on specified Crown Land and State forest areas.
