I am not defending them in any way as I posted a comment on their video. As tourist they are ignorant to our laws here. They should take the initiative to find out. Helicopter operators should also take it on themselves to educate them as to what can/cannot be shot as should DOC when issuing permits as not all tourists fly in

man there are some real drama queens on this site.
as to being  arseholes  you have to act with intent to be  an arsehole before you are an arsehole  those guys are just having fun doing what they would do back home,I dont believe they are blatantly disregarding our laws and hunting protocol's.
surely one less parrie to fly up the river in front of you scaring eveything cant be a bad thing?????perhaps they were long range tarz killers and the pigeons just happened to be in the elevated line of the trajectory needed to shoot that 16inch tarz at the top of mount cook.
not only are they arseholes but bloody homos too. Embarrassed

It's not hard to find out that woodies are off limits. You'd think they'd at least try and find out the game laws here (there's not many).

Good point. Hey - maybe they could get some practice sighting in on road signs, too...

... after all - they may be ignorant of that law as well.

I tend to also beleive they had no intent to brake the law and were just doing what they would do back home and having a great time.
But thats the point isn't it; they were not at home and there was no mechanism in place to make sure they new the laws for hunting in NZ.
DOC needs to charge for hunting permits supplied to overseas hunters and to take measures to ensure they know the do's and don'ts.

The heli-operator has no responsibilty for hunter "training", why should they?  They are paid transporters nothing more.
A bus driver is not responsible if he carries some guys to town who later rob a bank.

What happened to "ignorance of the law is no defence"? It is their RESPONSIBILITY to find out.

Yes they bloody were. Wood pigeons belong to us New Zealanders. Those 2 they shot looked fairly badly damaged to me.
