What hunters don't seem to realize, is the Peter Dunne, when associate conservation minister did a lot more for hunters than anyone has done previously.
That might now be saying much, but he did have a positive influence on DOCs attitude to recreational hunting

He got no thanks for that, from hunter. In fact a lot just  seemed to whinge about the GAC, chargers for hunting, , I'll do what I like blah blah

Well now, DOCs got a tame Minister so don't expect anything to improve, infact its more than likely going to get worse, for hunters

And the more apathetic hunters become, the more they will be ignored.

When Pete Dunne visited the North Canterbury branch a few yrs back and probably others too, he fought the anti Heli Hunting battle for us but when it came to the election received bugger all support from rec hunters. Now the Outdoors Party trying to fight for hunters/fishers - but few wanted to throw one of two votes their way? What is Labour/Nats/Greens doing for recreational sport? Nothing?

yeah, we sold our inheritance for a morsel.
NZDA position I believe is WARO is an important factor in game management but needs better controls.

Fundamentally control of deer numbers needs to take more hinds than stags but WARO operators are never going to agree to stop taking stags in velvet and the current framework allows them to do that.

WARO operators are under pressure from reduced areas they can operate due to a buffer zone requirement between poisoned areas and WARO areas. WARO does subsidise reduced chopper costs for foot hunters flying in, perhaps to the edge of RHA zones.
