Hi.
Jack here.
Not sure what to say other that I'm a newbie.
22LR and 12GA. 7mm08 planned. Currently looking for rabbiting opportunities - I like a good stew and dog would sell her soul for some rabbit meat.
If anyone wants a partner - let me know, I enjoy outdoors, I am a very slow climber though.

Hey guys newbie here, my name is Kel-James A.K.A KJ and I'm interested in any aspect of hunting but mostly I'm after some goat meat for the freezer and a bit of dog tucker. I'm currently located in Christchurch but have lived most of my life in the North Island and the last 4 years in Marlborough before moving further south. I don't have much experience hunting at all. I've caught one pig and blasted a few bunnies and magpies with an air rifle. Not sure what else to say but I'm looking forward to learning a lot from the more experienced guys on this forum

Hi guys,
Thought a few years of lurking in the shadows was long enough, often visit this site for info on areas I am about to or keen to venture to.
Cheers!

After years of fly fishing, spin fishing and spear fishing I finally also got in to hunting. Learned a lot already from this forum and hoping to now also contribute a bit more than just lurk around Smiley Located in the South Island, shooting a 7mm08 and enjoy a tramp and overnighters.

Hello Everyone. My name is Paul and I'm from the United States. Country boy at heart. Love DIY hunting for big game. I've got quite a bit of experience hunting elk in the U.S. and couldn't help but notice all of the opportunity New Zealand has to offer. Hope you guys aren't too upset with a foreigner checking out your hunting scene. I love the outdoors and adventure. I'm a professional here in the U.S. working as an Engineering Manager for Nissan. My plant makes trucks and vans. I'm very respectful of people and mother nature. The guys on this forum seem pretty cool from what I've read so far. I'm hoping to come to NZ in April to hunt Stag and maybe Tahr. Love to find some hunting partners if anyone is interested in adding me to their party or going with me to share cost and the experience. Cheers

Welcome to the forum Paul, you should come across a few guys on here that can help you in your N.Z. quest. My little bit of initial advice would be to arrive here early April, like the first, to take advantage of the best  roar period.  Cheers  X.P.

Thanks XP. I've been doing some research on the Roar. Your advice is good. I will target that first week. I've been in contact with a heli company and know block draws are coming up. I'm thinking about checking to see if anyone has an opening in their block for a 3rd or 4th person. If that doesn't work out, I'll probably apply for a block by myself. I'm not afraid to hunt by myself. I've done it plenty of times before. But going with someone would be nice for safety and cost reasons.

Hi fellas,
after many years of only lurking around here, I thought it's time to contribute a little - if I can and if anybody is willing to put up with what's left of my germerican english.
The rainman was born and raised in southern Germany where the old man got me into hunting early on. Passed my "hunters exam" by the age of 16 and hunted ever since (I'm in my early 50's now). No reds in our area, so main game species were roe deer, wild boar, hares and misc. varmints. In the 90's I spent a lot of time working overseas, so in those years, hunting was low  Sad. Later on, driven hunts for boar did become more and more popular and training with the "running boar" (aka "Laufender Keiler") became more and more a favorite and still is Smiley.
Besides hunting, during the last two decades I picked up some gun smithing skills, but legal constraints unfortunately force me to only damage my personal rifles  Shocked.

Spelling and grammar are no hobbies of mine and my english get's worse every year, so please be patient with me  Wink.

Cheers

Welcome Rainman, glad you came in out of the rain.
Your grammar is good.
Sounds like your hunting is a little different over there.
Your laws to, do you have to re-sit your hunting license or do you keep it for life.

Thanks for the nice welcome DHDS!  Smiley
Regarding our laws: It used to be the case that once you pass the hunters exam you're good for the rest of your life. However, following 2004 when the EU passed new regulations on the "hygiene of foodstuffs" and on taking samples for Trichinella testing (etc.), all of us older folks (exam before 1987  Sad ) had to "re-sit" some. However, your actual license has to be renewed/paid for yearly (or every 3 years) and each time you have to turn in an up-to-date confirmation of insurance coverage.  Cheers R.

Hi everyone!  My name is Tom and I married a Kiwi lady and we're living in Pennsylvania.

I have been to the North Island NZ once with her so far and had a heck of a time fishing and checking out the countryside!

Looking forward to future trips to check out the South Island for potential DIY hunting areas for all the usual big game suspects!

Welcome aboard TomW. Sure would love to hear about the hunting you get up to in your State.
And when it comes time for a return trip to NZ, someone on here will no doubt give you some good hints to improve your South Island experience Smiley
