    I just got my rifle import permit last month and its just for firearms not bows. I checked Air New Zealand and they don't need any paperwork. You can can just check in like other sporting equipment.

    In my experience there are Air New Zealand staff who think bows are "weapons" and do require paperwork, but they are wrong.

    you could possibly buy a new bow over there for the cost of extra luggage bag...... crazy how cheap some of the gear is over there.....or better still buy a front stuffer and bring it home with you,and then leave it at my place for safe keeping LOL.

    LOL.... I will be far too busy making grass grow in November/December/January to go running around the hills behind a crazy old mountain goat chasing mountain goats ,but I could possibly handle a quiet stroll to keep you company,work permitting.... the .45/70 with cast n black powder on thar could be interesting....

    In my experience you would be a fool to just pick up a new bow over there and go hunting. Bows are something that take a great deal of practice and work to be efficient with them. Take the bow you know

    I wasnt suggesting he just picked up any old bow off shelf.......99% sure he would find the same as he will already have without any issue..... and nobody I know is a good at reading game as ol Dusty...the man is a machine and sure knows his stuff.

    Thanks Micky, funny you know I've never swung a golfclub but as my brother is a golf nut I accompanied him out one morning, would of like something heavier than he thrust into my hand for swinging with but anyway first swing and it flew tried n true. So yeah I'm fairly lucky to be adept. Next time I go golfing I'm indication on a 30 cal driver. I've got two fallow running around the place and the young boy is due for the freezer but it's been blowing for at least a fortnite and they be very nervous as in not coming out until after dark n by that stage I can't see the pin

    @Ryan_Songhurst - I agree regarding hunting with the setup you know - that is almost non-negotiable - but the opportunity to upgrade while over there is simply too good to pass up!
