New Zealand Deerstalkers Association

The New Zealand Deerstalkers Association has been protecting your rights to enjoy recreational hunting, bushcraft, and shooting for over 75 years.

We promote safe, responsible use of firearms, and a respect for native flora and fauna. We believe in the principle of public ownership of wildlife generally, and seek to prevent the creation of privileged hunting or exclusive access to the publicly owned fish and wildlife assets that belong to all New Zealanders.
