    Got asked for my permit today

    First time ever i was asked by a DOC guy if i had a hunting permit and can i see it as i was walking out of the hunting block, i always have one and had it on me so all was well. Was quite helpful after he checked it out, told me some pointers on where some sign was, just doing his job and had no complaints

    Only been asked for mine once, and that was by an "Honourary Officer" of the Tuhoe persuasion at Tawhana, near the Otane stream. Took a while to dig it out of the pack, but he actually took a note of the details and was pleasant enough.

    Never been asked to see a hunting permit but always carry it in my pack along with my hut passes

    Printed and stored in the zip lock with the fire starting kit ...... worst comes to worst I'll get to burn it.

    Mine is always in a ziplock bag with my map.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Got asked for my permit today

    Always carry one on me an have a spare lot in my truck. Usually if I'm hunting my truck will be parked on doc land so I leave one on the dash. Good to see them being proactive aye.
