Re: New Zealand Chamois
Thanks for the comments guys,
3fingervic there are heaps of opportunities near Auckland, depending on your definition of near. There are fallow deer within an hour of downtown Auckland, although most are on private land and a fee needs to be paid, don't know how much though.
If you drive 3-4 hours south of Auckland it opens up a heap of public land that varies from bush hunting to open tops. No fee needs to be paid although a hunting permit (free) needs to got from the Department of Conservation.
There are also numerous private blocks avaliable, often needing helicopter or light plane access. Most huting is for Red or Sika deer.
