    Maybe it had to be in by the 4th? Done mine as soon as it opened, so it seems like a wee while.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    I've got 2 or 3 lots of Kiwi's coming for a hunt here so that will use up most of my spare time

    No offence meant mate, but if I want the Game Animal Council (GAC) to do one thing, it is to stop that happening in future.
    A lot of Aussies come over and use a guide for their first trip and then go hell for leather every other ballot. I do not have half the rights here in Oz for hunting, as you Aussies or any foriegners do in NZ.
    You can come over and shoot a trophy bull or any of our game animals and take it out of NZ for the cost of a flight. There is no public hunting here in Oz that offers the same oppourtunity that I am aware of?
    I should not miss out on hunting my back yard to any non-resident. Our policies are so stupid and free to abuse, they need to change.

    Thats very incorrect, if you've spent time in WA and Qld you can't hunt public because no one can, so do as we do and door knock for private access. WA is the tightest state in Aus for gun laws so anything there is hard.

    I've hunted in SA, Vic, and Qld and the laws are the same as far as I'm aware, in that we have no special treatment. Mind you Vic is the only state that allows public land hunting, though NSW will again in the next few months. NSW has the monster fallow and red heads so I'm keen for this to happen. Thats the same whether you're from here or anywhere in the world and if you need to buy a permit to able to hunt in a certain spot in Aus you can guarantee we need the same one.

    Its not like the US where they try to stop people from the next state even from hunting, its fair game if you put in the hard yards to find places to go.

    Edit - in fact, Vic changed its laws in sept 2012 to make it easier for internationals to hunt in Victoria to promote the industry to the world

    What is incorrect exactly BH? All of NZ has public hunting opportunities. Dont really care about anywhere else as I am happy to pay if I have to. I am also talking about a unique, balloted period and area. So I fail to see how I am incorrect in what I initially said and want as a NZer regarding my hunting/user rights.
    I will never hunt NSW. I reside in QLD. Not saying I want to hunt here either. Ridiculous laws and opportunity out-weigh the desire and reward IMO.
    I do not want to miss out on a limited yearly ballot for areas I live and play in, because a non-resident won it, over me. It needs to be stopped. Period.
    It is not just my opinion. Thar are unique in the SH and if you want to hunt them in NZ you should pay to have the privilage as a non-reident as I would expect to, going to any other country to hunt and will do so, happily.
