In 1870, captain Thomson brought over two female and one male red neck wallaby from Australia to our local Waimate district in the South Island. The lack of predators and abundance of food now sees huge populations spread throughout this area.
A cousin of the kangaroo, wallabies weigh between 30 - 40 lbs and we have no season or limits on shooting these pests.
Our hunts can be walk up, long range, helicopter or night shoots that suit all hunters and can keep your barrels hot when you get into big numbers. It is not uncommon to cull 15 - 30 in an evening.
We also have possums, and large numbers of rabbits and hares that we conduct walk up hunts with shotgun
