    I didn't stop. I did get two eels later on, with a traditional line and hook, they were tasty

    Lol sounds like you had a bit of fun you should look into a reel for your bow you guys have a lot of carp up north that are free game and make great burly I am told.

    As for hunting,


    Check out that link and switch on hunting areas feature.
    There are two places you may hunt officially in this country, Private land with permission from owner (however they are happy for you to do so its open)
    And on DOC approved hunting areas that they clearly define in the attached map as open hunting areas, you have already read their rules for Bows so that's easy.
    Anywhere outside of these areas it is Illegal.
    But the general public still think of bows as toys and sporting equipment so are generally not concerned at all but if you strike one that is concerned or someone of authority out side of these areas.
    You will be in for bad times (Some sort of weapons charge)

    Nearly forgot you need to apply for the DOC hunting permit to hunt conservation land, And Identify as a bow hunter, this is also mandatory, but its free and easy (Just tick every area in the country you may plan to hunt then you are covered for the year)
