Children hunting under adult supervision

Parents and guardians must get permission for children to go hunting in the Northern Territory (NT).

Your child must always be under the supervision of an adult while hunting.

Your child must be at least 12 years old and under 18 years old to allow them to go hunting with you or another adult.

They must be a nominee on an adult's hunting permit to go hunting.

There are two ways to add children to a permit – online or by filling in a form.
