Wimmera farmers and hunters have collected more than 18,600 fox scalps as part of the State Government's fox and wild dog bounty.
Horsham's Department of Primary Industries collection point has received more than 12,600 fox scalps since the program began in October 2011 the state's fourth largest total.
St Arnaud's collection point received 5429 fox scalps from 133 contributors, while two people delivered six wild dog skins to the Rainbow collection point.
Victorians handed in more than 133,000 fox scalps and 400 wild dog pelts statewide.
The state government has paid more than $1.3 million in bounties since the program began with hunters receiving $10 for an acceptable fox scalp and $50 for a wild dog skin.
Department of Primary Industries biosecurity manager for established animals John Matthews said scalp and pelt collections had been suspended until March.
"The suspension of collection does not stop hunters collecting body parts," he said. "Before Christmas hunting had slowed significantly because it wasn't peak lambing period.
"People said they would not work their dogs during the hot weather and it was also during peak harvest and shearing periods. The whole idea of this is to reduce administrative costs on the bounty and that in turn will make more money available for rewards out of the government's commitment of $4 million in funding."
Mr Matthews said the bounty complemented other initiatives to reduce the number of foxes and wild dogs.
"Hunting used in isolation will not provide any long-term control on foxes," he said.
"It can be a useful tool in a large integrated fox management program.
"Best practice fox control programs will also rely heavily on landscape-scale baiting programs."
