    Yeah, the WAMS is getting better. Margin strips, queens chain, legal access points, paper roads are all on there. Some good contact info as well but not landowners details. At least on DOC land you can get a ref and ring the approp office for more info.

    Beware though, it's not that easy. I know of at least one instance where the cocky has refused access to a DOC block even though there was legal margin access, Cambo has another story regarding shooting on a legal DOC administered area but the cocky wouldn't have anything of it. What was/is a paper road may not be available as access now due to washouts, slips, bush growth and even fencing.

    This site isn't a licence to walk on land and demand access, and it isn't easily understood by the rural runholders/owners - sometimes this site gives us more knowledge than them, but doesn't mean you will actually get access just by quoting it.

    yep, I agree. Still have to take into consideration stock movement etc.
    I heard a story where a guy at work argued black and blue regarding access, in the end the cocky said go ahead but he had pastoral rights. When the hunter came back to the truck the paddock was full of cattle, who'd taken a keen interest in getting rid of an itch up against his truck. Cocky had moved them into the paddock on purpose.

    Can certainly spoil a good day if you come back to that.

    If i was that farmer i would have done the same. Just because a map says you can be there, doesn't make it right.
    At the end of the day, get on with the farmer and all will be sweet. Piss him off by being an arsehole and you will regret it. Remember that there are plenty of places to hunt in NZ without being a right cunt about it.

    While I agree with you mostly there is a disturbing trend in this country of overseas buyers buying land knowing full well there is a access easement on it and then doing there utmost to stop all access to public land behind.

    Basically they are trying to turn NZ, where you can pretty much go where you want and do what you want(within reason of course) into there homeland(where ever that may be) where nobody can go anywhere unless they have a big pocket full of cash they are willing to hand over.
    They come here because its so great then try to turn it into what they escaped from is up with that?
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.
