    Goat/Pig/Pest hunting South of Auckland

    Hey Guys,

    So I am really keen to get out and shoot some goats / Pests south of Auckland, I don't mind travelling as well.

    I have searched the forum and not found anything related.

    I have driven around Port Waikato area and there seems to be a lot of Goats around but from chatting to the locals it seems the farmers are farming goats now. the farmers that are culling goats are already full up with hunters keen to get in and help with the problem. Also, the area seems to have been hit with a lot of poaching of late and the area is under surveillance now as a result. i do have permission from 3 farmers in Pukekohe to shoot the rabbits that are creating huge holes and are a hazard to thier horses, but the bunnies are getting a little thin now and i would like to try my hand at larger game.

    I have all the necessary DOC permits to hunt on open land, and I am keen to get out into the bush I don't mind doing the long yards just so long as there is some kind of result.

    Can anyone suggest an area that I can try, tips tricks, pointers etc, please?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Try one or more of the North Waikato DOC blocks. I've had access to both "my" spots pulled out from under me, so will be finding new spots soon.

    Yes. My site doesn't store the state of which layers are active. Defaults to topo50. Choose Hunting/recreational. "Access" shows all the stuff from wams.org.nz - paper roads, etc.

    As always, if you can't access it, my IP address has changed. PM me for the updated one.
