I really think that growers would be unhappy at the thought of SatNav equipped hunters roaming around where their crops are growing, moreover hunters who are going to report any crops pronto.

so - no evidence that hunters had anything to do with this crop discovery? Okay.

No published evidence, those that have alerted the police do not want publicity and are happy that the police get all the credit.
There is such a thing as pay back to consider.

Because the crop might be under police surveillance, and they just might be on the camera.
If they are and they don't report the crop then they may be considered stakeholders in the crop.
Citation needed.

Failure to report a crop could be considered sufficient grounds for the Commissioner of Police to cancel licences with the attendant loss of money involved in selling their firearms or, even worse, having them confiscated.

Thats a fair enough point.

I do find it amusing that the biggest reason you can come up with is "but they might take my shooty toys away and then I wouldnt be able to shoot things" but hey, im easily amused.

Well be amused, but it would be enough motivation for the average hunter who'd have a minimum of $5,000 tied up in firearms and probably more. I have about $15,000s worth and I know plenty of shooters who own in excess of $100,000s worth of guns.
It's not hard to spend on the sport, I just spent $1,000 to buy a 50 year old BSA single shot .22 rf target rifle.

So you can see that losing one's firearms licence can have rather disastrous consequences for a shooter, who may also have a valuable collection and possession of the collection would also be lost.

Bye the way, if my second point is "Fair enough" and it follows from the first then why would a citation be needed for the first?

When it comes to the general public using guns in self defence, I am the biggest critic, but when it comes to responsible recreational shooting I am both a supporter and a participant.

On this particular issue we are roughly in agreement. I don't go shooting recreationally myself but I know people who do and I support them.

Not correct. Many stories are published that police 'acted on information from the public' without ever identifying informants.

The reality is that there is not a single known instance of this happening.

From what I've heard it has happened and there is great potential for it to happen and that is what I would think would most worry growers.
