    A teacher is currently being dragged over the coals for a dive trip that went "wrong". Interestingly, nothing very bad actually happened and it was under the supervision of a commercial dive outfit. Mate who is a teacher says an ever decreasing number of his colleagues want to stick their necks out and get involved with school trips now.

    @Chelsea can I suggest if you go ahead wth this..... and yup I think it's fraught with complications maybe consider calling it "small game" hunting rather than "pest" it's a little thing but the word pest just has negative connotations to it and sounds far less attractive than "small game" just a thought

    Fantastic idea! Im with the others and would prefer to see our game valued as a resource, not a pest. But thats just a small thing. Lots of good advice on here, lots. I wouldn't get too hung up on the Health and Safety issue, theres a lot of ways around all this BS regulation crap. Becoming part of the NZDA and offering what you are proposing to small groups like 3 or 4 kids at a time max should work without too much hassle. Theres plenty of keen hunters and shooters that would offer valuable real life assistance to help kids learn to hunt responsibly. Dont worry about the range rules thing - you wouldn't be offering this sort of activity on a "range". And the instruction needs to be one on one for safety reasons and the teaching side of it. I say go for it, do everything right, but fly under the radar. Word of mouth is a great advertising tool.
