    A lot of different answers here...

    I have a Remington 11/87 that I shoot ducks with. I also have a smoth barrell that is short with iron sights and a rifled choke (factory). I brought it for Stewart island. I imagine that if some one form DOC found me with it and slugs only they wouldn't be too worried...

    You could get all fired up about the definition of a shot gun or you could think more about what the rule is trying to prevent from happening...

    I reckon.

    when you apply for a "small game permit" it says only allowed to use rimfire or shotgun, so cant be illegal on doc land,provided you have small game permit. that's what it said last time I looked anyway. also had something about centrefire rifles only to be used on large game.

    You can also get a permit to carry a shotgun on plenty of Public Conservation Land from DoC to shoot ducks or geese, just ask at your local DoC office. I got one for 4 months along with my hunting permit.

    Using a shotgun on small game and ducks is a bit different than shooting deer with solid slugs. craigc has commented on the intent of the rule which i think is a good way to put it. Needless to say it wont stop those that are intent on using shotguns for illegal purposes from taking them into DOC land.

    What about a drilling? Or one of those fangdangled one-gun-for-all-jobs Euro 3- and 4- barrel things that have one 12g, one .22, one rifle barrel and one more for luck?

    I know of a set of three drillings, 16g shot, 222, 7x64, and a 22 mag insert for the shotgun barrel, which is stored in the buttstock. One for dad and two short stocked for the sons

    Ive got a permit to carry a shotgun for all DoC administered land in Canterbury and I carry some buckshot just in case.......... You can get a permit to carry one either for ducks etc, or for hunting with the provision you only use solids or buckshot.
