All very good ideas guys ,here another that I had forgotten
If you planing on a spotlighting trip on the farm ALWAYS ask if they have any horses on the place as they just HATE the light placed on them ,they generally go mad & could  run into a fence & be badly damage  ,so don't do ,having to go back and report that you have driven the wife or kids pet horse into barbwire ,just isn't going to go down well at all.

My mate's family just bought a farm at far auckland
But we have no idea whether we can shoot or not
Is there any laws or requirements that rule out if you wanna shoot in the farm the farm must have a certain size or bigger than that??

Just follow the rules as above but if its small:
Notify neighbours and ask if they have any concerns
Notify Police if its close to a township
and check where the buildings/houses are

Even a few farms I do occasionally, at night the place looks different, and even if i know a house is in a certain direction, sometimes you have to lift the spotlight off the animal and shine around and check where the house is before taking a shot. If not 100% sure dont take the shot!!

If you have asked the farmer if it is ok to shoot them Smiley

He may have a few he is leaving to build the numbers to maintain stocks as it is easy to wipe satalite heards out Wink

Yes and it doesnt hurt to ask!

The reason i put this in is on our old farm we had four fallow deer turn up unexpected and I left them alone for about a year hoping a few more would establish. we let a fella who had been begging to shoot bunnies go out for a walk and he came back with a HUGE smile saying he had shot two small deer, both hinds and could we come and help him carry them. Angry Angry Angry

The old man told him in no uncertain terms that he could come help US carry them, he might get a front shoulder if he is lucky and not to bother calling in again.

Same goes for stoats, ferrits and cats.

Most land owners want them shot.  Some of the more old school ones want them left (they eat rabbits after all).  You won't know until you ask.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

All good stuff guys.
All common sense, and thats all anyone can ask for.
People are more likely to allow good people that are known to be good people keep coming back. So if given the opportunity for some shooting on someones land, make a good impression.
Remember also, there are alot of land owners that themselves like to hunt so don't be dissappointed or discouraged if you get turned down, you may one day be invited to join them if a good impression is made.
Just my 2 cents.

helps if you say you belong to deerstalkers or a local hunting clubs.  deerstalkers is great as they have a $10m public liability insurance in case something goes horribly wrong.
  

For some of us, the call to hunt is deep in our genes.  It's there, and those that don't have it will never know the deep and profound impact is has upon those of us who do.  Keith Draper.

I'm asuming that only covers Public land though wouldnt it??

If its not the case, I might just join and cancel my insurances, but does it cover Rural Fire?

ah shit my bad rabbit hunter.  you're completely right.  it does only cover public land.  yep it does cover rural fire, but only on public land.  guess what i was trying to say was that if you belong to a club, the cocky is more likely to see you in a positive light and involved in the sport, rather than being a rambo Smiley

off my old membership card.... "members have $10m public liability insurance, including a $1m forest and rural fires act extension, and a punitive and exemplary damage cover against claims made from hunting activities in the field".  fairly else non specific i guess - am now wondering if it is on all land and not just public?  can anyone else shed some light?

I'd assumed it was for anywhere, as our Branch uses it to get access through private forest to public land.
