Get Permission is the latest initiative from the Game Licensing Unit to foster responsible and ethical hunting in NSW. The Get Permission app is a central location to store your hunting permissions, simplifying your record keeping requirements. The app also makes it easier for you to show that you are compliant with legislation covering entry onto private lands, hunting and firearms.
Part of the Shut the Gate on Illegal Hunting campaign, in partnership with the NSW Police Force, the Get Permission mobile application helps landholders and hunters connect and manage permissions to hunt on private land in NSW. Using the app, hunters can request permission from private landholders who can then manage the request by giving their approval or by declining. Landholders are also able to revoke previously approved hunter permissions using a simple interface. The Get Permission app creates a log of permission requests and gives hunters the ability to store important documents and share their permission by email. Designed simply as a tool for landholders and hunters, the Get Permission app is not monitored by either DPI or NSW Police. It's not compulsory for hunters to use this app. It's simply provided as a convenient way to request permission from landholders and store your permissions to show you are compliant. The app allows you to store copies of your hunting and firearms licences and other important documents.
