This local annual event is aligned with the Red Card for Rabbits & Foxes, a state-wide initiative to manage invasive pest species. Every year, thousands of foxes, rabbits, and feral cats are dispatched to ensure the safety of native and domestic animals.

This year, the Sporting Shooters of Australia Association WA (SSAA WA) are sponsoring the tally at $5 per fox and per feral cat. The funds raised will go the Royal Flying Doctor Service WA.

An affordable breakfast will be provided on the morning of the Tally, with prizes given out to teams based on a points system.

In a short while, we’ll start providing information and an online registration form will be set up to easily get your teams nominated.
