Wellington Hunters

The Dom Post yesterday had an advert from the Greater Regional Council for the Ballot for hunting Blocks for the Wainui and Orongorongo water catchment and the East Harbour Regional Park for deer hunting.   The block is for 3 days.

They also have Pig Hunting blocks for ballot for non firearm hunting (dogs)

Personally I have never been into the East Harbour Park which I think is Butterfly Creek area.  The Wainui Water Area is as I recall pretty hard going but blokes do hook the odd deer there.

For Your info

Cheers

Hunting

Hunting ballot opens mid January 2010
To enter the ballot, hunters (only one entry per person) should obtain an information pack (including a ballot entry form) by sending a cheque, $5 non-refundable, to East Harbour Deer Hunting Ballot, Greater Wellington, PO Box 40847, Upper Hutt 5140.

For all enquiries please contact Joanne Hunwick, ph (04) 526 5332 or email joanne.hunwick@gw.govt.nz.

Pig hunting permits available
Greater Wellington Regional Council offers the opportunity for members of the public to undertake pig hunting in East Harbour Regional Park.  Permits will be issued for a 5 month period each year from 1 May to 30 September.

The hunting will play a part in controlling animals in the park, and also provide an opportunity for the recreational hunting of pigs within a designated hunting area in the Northern Forest Block.

Permits for non-firearm use will be issued on application.  Dog registration numbers or micro-chip numbers are required prior to permits being issued (maximum of 3 dogs).

For all hunting enquiries please contact Joanne Hunwick, ph (04) 526 5332 or email joanne.hunwick@gw.govt.nz.

waste of time in the wainui catchment in april, i knew some of the cullers that went in there over the years. they would bomb the place up a month before the blocks opened up for the public, one time they took about 20 odd pest control dogs in there to catch goats, pigs and deer.
they do this to justify sending cullers in and to justify poisoning the place, when public hunters go in and get nothing the government boys can say that the average hunter cant get anything, so they have to have cullers in on a regular basis, or pro hunters they call themselves !

Shocked Wouldn't be surprised though  Roll Eyes

I hunted Eastern Harbour last year, didn't get jack squat nor did i see anything (pigs or deer). I covered close to the whole park too, without exaggerating! I guess you might strike it lucky and come across the odd pig passing through but i didn't see any over the space of the 5 months i spent in there. And that was ALOT of hunting. There certainly ain't no resident pig populations through there!

Do have to say though it's very beautiful in there through all the beech up high and then further in where the general public don't venture.

Opps...i tell a fib...i did come across a fair amount of possoms! Not once did i go in and not see one hanging from one of there traps.

I've heard the Wainui catchment can be pretty good for deer during the roar if you know where to go though?

They have just been done by private contractors.

So true! I hunted this place twice during the public ballot and found the above had just happened - helos, cullers and contracted ground parties with dogs. Even the pigeons and fantails were keeping a low profile. Won't waste my time going back into the water reserve to be played as a pawn in the councils' game.
