    If this happens again contact me directly, I will sort it a lot more than a just a trespass.
    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    at one of the meetings it was talked about how much hunting area that was administered by nzda it was a lot and there was talk of more being put under their management as in balloting and numbers hunting at any one time bit like it used to be done where you got a block that your party could hunt only not the whole of fiordland like now. I would hope if that someone complained about a member poaching that the association that they are part of would take some action or that it would be passed to higher up members for action. there is so many places to go and as far as I am concerned I either ask and get permission or its off limits .it is time that maybe license suspension for trespass was brought in as in 6 months for first time , 2 years second time ,third time no return of license and firearms to be collected by AO and stored till license returned and if caught with a firearm in any of these suspensions that would count as the next suspension , same with bow hunters.

    @berg243 You will find first time you get a warning letter against your licence. 2nd time your licence is gone. From what the local cop has told me. (depending on what you could loose you licence first time round)

    Alot of town hunters have no idea how bad the poaching/spotlighting is on rural roads.(shooting of stock ) using the excuse we are only shooting possums doesn't cut it any more.Times have changed. There are people driving over from BOP just to drive the roads around gisborne with a light. 3HR drive they are not going home with nothing. There are many rural roads around gisborne now with cameras on roads .So carry your permits and licence

    At my local NZDA a year or teo back, I had the just recent president tell me all about how much he poached and rustled in the old days, and how he thinks it's sweet as now so long as you don't get caught. Helped pay for his first house etc etc. Suffice to say I have nothing to do with that branch anymore, for that and a couple other reasons

    Faces committed to memory Tommy. If they are locals then I will see them one day and pot them.

    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

    Going rate at the moment for hunting without a firearms license (second time same offence in 2yrs) is 90hrs community service and destruction of weapon.
