    DOC (the New Zealand Department of Conservation) is going to make guided helicopter hunting (shooting animals out of a chopper) a legal activity on public lands come September. The writing is on the wall, 3 operators have already been granted an interim*decision to carry out this activity until heli-hunting permits become available in September.

    The petition below may achieve nothing, but at least in 5 years time when our public land tahr and chamois herds have no trophy animals left*and our pristine and peaceful back country is*jammed full of helicopters*you will be able to say I tried to stop this!

    Please take 1 minute of your time click on the link below and sign this petition, it is simple and easy.

    Stop guided helicopter-hunting in New Zealand Petition

    Mate done.

    That is an outrage, it was bad enough when i was there last to think it could get worse just makes me angry. I know alot of guys in the spearfishing fraternity that are hunters also and will get them to sign up also.

    This is disgusting, something needs to be done about DoC!

    Its providing easier ways for wealthy hunters to take the best game we have to offer and taking away any work they "might" have had to do to earn the trophy themselves, possibly even on foot!

    And it's just so they can cull out more "pest" animals. That's all DoC is concerned about. It's exactly the same with the 1080 poisoning, they just just find the easiest solution to a problem and run with it, even if it's at the personal cost of New Zealanders and its visiting tourists!

    I've signed the petition

    The New Zealand Department of Conservation seem to give a "solution" to only one problem then act on it and ultimately just create more problems with even less answers. I'm glad to see an individual doing his bit for hunting!
