Kiwis

Any Kiwis on here that can tell me if they are still doing any banding in NZ? Here's two Canadas I killed on the South Island a few years ago. Just curious.

That would make it the Molesworth Station area there are about 12 thousand geese in that area and those geese are tagged on Lake Ellesmere , near Christchurch .

Thanks for the info. I wasn't far from Ellesmere. We were shooting Swans and I killed them in the same field.

It was on a Canada I killed some years ago and will have to find the info. I think it was banded in Canada maybe Ontario, but not sure.

They ever get things arranged to allow foreigners the opportunity to hunt down there?

Ok, you must be in New Zealand, for some reason I was thinking Australia. I would love to hunt New Zealand some time for all those species and peacock.

Not sure I've ever seen a more picturesque country to hunt.

Overseas visitors can hunt game birds and animals in Australia. Waterfowl can be hunted in 4 states. In Victoria the season runs for around 10 weeks from mid March with 8 species generally available. Bag limit varies from season to season up to 10 birds a day. A overseas visitors firearms lic. and game bird lic. is required. While hunting with a person who has a local LIc. No waterfowl I.D. is required. I have had a number of overseas friends hunt with me.We have even travelled to Tasmania and hunted Cape Barren geese and Peacocks. Only one issue since 1997 we don't have semi autos or pumps only 2 shots. I still take as many birds during the season and use a lot less ammo. Just made me a better shot .

That's great it's available. What species are reasonable to target during a trip?

I've hunt in Europe, Argentina, and throughout the US, but Australia and new Zealand are still on my to do list.

If you were prepared to travel about the state it would be possible to take all 8 species. In a average year, where I hunt 6 species would not be a problem. The better years you can take all 8 in my area. We only had 7 on the list this year and a poor season I shot all 7. If you want to have a look at the birds google Game Management Auth. Victoria click on ducks and you can see what they look like. The Northern Territory has a later season than the southern states and have several other varieties as well as Magpie Geese. But you need to be prepared for the heat and 100% humidity.
If you were thinking of NZ I can recommend John Gemmell at Hanmer Springs. Did a trip with him some time back. Knows his stuff.

Thanks for the info, it's much appreciated. Sometimes it's hard finding good links with information on hunting in other countries because our search engines seem to assume you don't want to know about hunting elsewhere, or they just don't prioritize hunting information period.
