    Public Range near Wellington

    Hey all,

    I'm looking to sight-in my new Savage before heading out the middle of next week for a hunt but the NZDA range is closed for lambing. Any thoughts on where I could go as a member of the public to sight-in my rifle? Doesn't even need to be a range necessarily, just a spot with an appropriate backstop on hunting-approved DoC land or private land that permission can be sought after.

    Cheers,

    - Jay C.

    I ended up going to the kaitoke range with a friend who's a member but I have a new scope coming in soon and possibly a new barrel in the not too distant future so I'd like to find an alternative to the NZDA members-only range. NZDA operates another range at 211 Takarua Gorge Rd that's open to the public before noon but their website says it's closed for lambing til October.
