    Small game hunting permit and where.

    Hi everyone

    I just got small game hunting permit to shoot some canada geese at North Canterbury & Arthurís Pass hunting in the Canterbury region.
    But i'm not entirely sure where to shoot it.
    Am I allowed only in highlighted area or can I shoot like people with game bird hunting license?(http://www.doc.govt.nz/global/huntin...-map-small.jpg)

    I appreciate any comments

    Thank you

    Shaded area is probably DOC Open Hunting Permit area. Small Game Permits are usually for a specified area. Check with local office.

    The area should be specified on your permit.

    So it looks aS if most Doc areas are not issuing permits to hunt rabbits and hares with a 22 or -17 rimfires or shotgun?
