HUNTING TO SURVIVE

When hunting rabbits, a .22 rifle is a popular choice. Air rifles can be very powerful and are often a bit quieter than a .22, and make a great choice for small game too. You don’t need a firearms licence to use an air rifle if you are over 18. Either way, you’ll want a gun with a good scope, and you can use a silencer on a .22 to reduce the noise level.

GOATS - Goats are widely spread throughout the county and live in a range of different environments. They can often be spotted on sunny slopes in bush clearings, tussock hillsides, farmland on the edge of bush and rocky areas. Goat are most often found in a mob, and are easily spotted and stalked due to their smell and their bleating. Bow hunters especially like hunting goats as they can get within range to safely and humainly make the kill. They can be shot wit a .22 rifle but a .22 magnum or 223 is preferable. Young goats and small nanny's can be great eating. They also make great dog food.
DEER - Red deer are the most widespread deer species in New Zealand with wild populations established throughout most of the forested and tussock country from the Kaimai Range in the north to Stewart Island in the south. Areas that have few or no red deer are Northland, much of Taranaki, Coromandel and Banks Peninsula. Red deer are medium sized animals of about 180 kg in weight. While calibres as small as .222 have been successfully used on red deer the recommended calibre is a minimum of .243. Feeding activity tends to be greatest in early morning and late afternoon. Plan your hunt to be at likely areas early morning and late afternoon. Hunt into the wind as quietly as possible and take advantage of available cover. When bush stalking carry your rifle, as opposed to have it slung over your shoulder, to keep movement to a minimum when lining up a shot. In windy weather, deer will seek sheltered areas and will keep to shelter in heavy rain, whilst during light drizzle overcast weather feeding can occur all hours of the day.
