    Question: let’s say someone has a fat lamb in the paddock and at the present time can also partly see the bottom of the freezer would it be ok to shoot the lamb ?

    Why would they need to shoot it, normal guys just bring them into the yards and cut there throat.....not many farmers (proper ones) use a gun

    I can't be a proper farmer then. If you have to ask on here about killing a lamb or what ever for you freezer the answers no.

    I always get them in the race and a .22 in back of head from my semi saves a lot of stress and grief. lambs dont know its coming usually do two when wanting freezer fillers. I have cut throats in past but .22 more humane and quick.Tried shooting in paddock but not ideal.

    We did throat thing, animals penned and stressed. Now a 22 when they are not expecting it, then hung on the tractor forks to work on and into the chiller. Had a leg last night, sure beats supermarket lamb.

    OK, I put my hand up. I do the same as you @hokonui......though sometimes I give them a feed of nuts in the field and do it there. They go out happy.....obviously I can't be a proper farmer.

    They have done studies and bolt gun,shooting is more humane.
    This was also verified by the meat inspector at Crusaders- Benneydale.

    MPI will have you if you get caught just cutting throats - did it for years and still do "in extremis" but its naughty, best to shoot them first. Like many past farming practices that are now not used it is not good to risk industry wide consumer backlash through the actions of a few stupid people stuck in the past.

    Always shoot them now.
    Normaly in the paddock ,feed of nuts to keep them close.
    Just easier and more humane I reckon.

    You cant beat sending in your home kill to the works. We are/were aloud to send in four at a time with a pick. Pick them up couple days later in a plastic wrap not through i see many like this

    The relevant section in the notice in PERSONAL MOVEMENT : limited recreation purpose e "a person LEAVING their residence". It prohibits hunting and swimming ,tramping etc. Do you think the intent is to stop people swimming in their own pools while still at their residence? I don't but if they go to the beach for a walk then swimming is not an option. Same with shooting off the deck at home, its not increasing any risk to anyone. Wring your hands and worry your selves about it if you like, I dont see it as any concern at all.

    Definitions 3 ii has Place of residence "in the case of a building, includes the land that is part of the property on which the the building is situated" It does not give dimensions or any other references. My building is situated on a 10 ha block and is not separated or defined in part in any way so were exactly does this place of residence end? At the boundary might be one conclusion? Some one with a legal background might have a better opinion?
    I dont believe the intent of the notice is restrict what we do at home and I cant see the Police calling at rural property following up on a shot rabbit.
    Iv shot 6 rabbits in the last 3 days,( actually Id rather have a visit from the police than face my wife if her roses get eaten again )
    This is still New Zealand, life will go on, today I can hear the neighbors down the road giving their motor cross track a hammering, a chainsaw was working earlier and a scrub cutter on another property. Iv used my chainsaw today and a skill saw while building an animal shelter and tonight I plan to run with scissors.

    the .223 does the job much easier and 50-75yards is plenty close enough.... I suggest before you do it you talk to your local copper on the quiet just so he in the loop... desrection is wise.

    You will get done for cutting a lambs throat? What the fuck does that say about halal meat then?
    It's ok based on religion to cut an animals throat but not for anyone else?

    I personally find shooting a lot cleaner and quicker. I'm not a farmers asshole but have dispatched lots of livestock off farms for the freezer.
    I never cut an animal I have hunted throat either. Rather stick them in thru the brisket to bleed them.
