The fox bounty is proving profitable for hunters across the south-west.
A collection day was held at Warrnambool on Wednesday, marking the fifth of nine such days scheduled for at the centre this year.
It has been an excellent hunting season with large numbers of rabbits feeding foxes.
An Agriculture Victoria spokeswoman said the government department had received 844 fox scalps from 24 hunters at Warrnambool so far this year.
"Agriculture Victoria received 463 fox scalps from 10 participants at Warrnambool on Wednesday," she said.
"Fox and wild dog management requires an integrated management approach, which includes a range of control techniques such as baiting, trapping, exclusion fencing and shooting."
Across the south-west region, Agriculture Victoria has received 12,013 fox scalps from 213 participants this year at Ballarat, Geelong, Colac, Warrnambool, Hamilton and Horsham collection centres.
"Statewide more than 38,000 scalps and 200 wild dog body parts have been collected from over 800 people," she said.
"Since the fox and wild dog bounty began in Victoria 2011, Agriculture Victoria has collected more than 760,000 fox scalps and 3300 wild dog body parts from over 16,000 participants.
"Victorian landholders and residents can submit entire fox scalps for a $10 reward and entire wild dog body parts for a $120 reward during scheduled collection times at the 21 collection centres around Victoria."
The spokeswoman said collection days in the south-west could be found on the Agriculture Victoria website.
