    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.

    Thanks for the info. I'll let him know. If I was to go visit him, would I be able to bring my rifle? As a visitor, would it be difficult for me to get a hunting permit?

    3fingervic .
    Bringing a rifle shouldn't be a problem, there is some paperwork to fill out but not too much of a hassle I think. The NZ Police are the people to get in contact with. Hunting permits shouldn't be a problem. Some Dept of Conservation offices want to see a firearms licence, some don't. From memory the North Island offices are fine. All they want is name, address, etc, should be ok to use your brothers address.
