    Hunting permits

    with the introduction of the DOC permit site and the ease to renew permits I was wondering how many of you hunt public land with a current permit? Do even bother to get a permit?

    Why wouldn't you get a permit when its that easy?

    Though I have to admit you just reminded me to check mine, turns out it had expired so have now renewed it! Hadn't realised they were only 4 months now.

    never ever bother, not much they can do if you are confronted by a DOC ranger, but take your name, just give them a false name

    I can assure you that judges frown on that sort of shit, especially where firearms are involved.

    I always have a current permit for the entire North Island. So easy to get it and print it these days compared to years ago. Hunting on DoC land without one is illegal. Doing so is just dumb arsed.
    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

    I'm happy to get my permit on line. I make a point of setting up the expiry date on my ph so I don't forget to renew it. The frustration is obtaining clear boundary mapping...

    The offence would change from not having a permit to giving false information...a real dumb thing to do when carrying a firearm

    I don't bother printing them, just keep a copy on my phone which I pretty much always have with me.
