In the 1860's the Acclimation Society played a major role in importing and managing game birds.
Wing shooting in New Zealand provides hunters with a total of 14 species to hunt. Daily bag limits are between 2 - 25 depending on the species. You can shoot great mixed bags in the South Island such as paradise duck, grey duck, spoon bill duck, mallard duck, pukeko, black swan and Canadian goose.
Our main season is the first weekend of May through to July with an early short season in March.
We also have a local pheasant season from April to August, and Merrium turkey hunting, of which New Zealand Safaris has one of the highest populations of wild birds on one of our properties that is an open season.
