    Question Pukeko control permit where to apply ?

    One of the farms I shoot hares on the farmer has asked me to help reduce the number of pukekos on his property as they are getting out of control.
    The farm is in Oxford North Canterbury, I know that the land owner needs to apply for a permit to cull them then good to go, can't for the life of me find out where to apply online on DOC or Fish and Game websites.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

    Fish and game will be the place, might need to ring them though.

    Yip. F&G. Got one last year to remove a few parries.

    The landowner has to do it tho. And there’s paperwork to fill out afterwards as well. I think they might’ve even come out before to inspect the problem

    Yeah that's not a problem, the land owner is happy to do all that. I'm just trying to point him in the right direction as it's quite a publicly visible area so everything has to be done right (not that it wouldn't be anyway) last thing we want is trouble with snowflakes and vegans.
    I have explained that if he wants me to shoot them the permit needs to be in place and he is more than happy to oblige

    From memory, it stipulated x amount could be shot and disposed of by burning or burying. Wasn’t much of a drama for landowner/manager to obtain

    Correct, new farm for me and heaps of ducks that never got shot at last season, with any luck I'll be shooting them next season. Have already broached the subject and he's pretty keen on the idea

    Thats a bit mean....surely it would be better if they were medium to well done rather than burnt....Or soup....

    Ph the office at Johns Road and ask when field staff will be there to issue paperwork. Collect on way to work
