    Great video it had all the things I love, I must admit to being a bit jealous of where you live at. Whats it like there as far as hunting laws and guns? I also have heard there is nothing poisonous there at all?

    Hunting laws are pretty good - year round. No seasons (everything is an introduced/"pest" animally legally), lots of public land, no bag limits etc.

    Gun laws are okay - similar to Canada I guess. Not great, but not Australia levels of terrible.


    Nothing poisonous except one species of very rare spider. It's nice and safe. Bring some bears over if you come, I want those.

    Everything is imported? No shit? I really had no idea, there must not be a lot of hunters?

    Is military service mandatory there?

    Well we have large local populations of introduced animals.


    40% of the South Island is public land. 20some % in the North Island I think.


    There aren't a lot of people here fullstop.

    Military service isn't mandatory, our military isn't much use - who's going to invade us? Tiny island in the middle of the pacific.

Thanks for indulging my questions. I hope to some day visit your country, had a foreign exchange student in my high school from NZ she was HOT redhead WOW!

    It's not that our military is bad, it's just that it's not really an essential for us, so mandatory service isn't a thing. We're not like some European countries etc where there is a historical precedent of having been invaded or a theoretical future thread of it. We're very isolated.

    I hope that some day you can make it over here. It's a hunter's paradise for free-range public land hunting.

    What are the sights to see there besides hunting? The wife has not been anywhere at all. I'm on a Google hunt as we speak.

    Excellent vid! Looks like great country.. I've got a little Sony shortwave radio (SW7600GR) and I pick up NZ on the 19 meter band (15720KHZ) quite often.. And I'm in Ohio! Would love to visit someday..

    We have Chukar (there's one in the video!), Pheasant and Californian Quail.

    There are seasons on gamebirds though.

    HA! Went back and rewatched it....sure enough I missed the chukar sighting the first time. Must've stepped away from the computer.


    NZ seems like a good place to live as a hunter, I'm jealous!

    How do you feel about wild boar? Almost as dangerous and twice as tasty. I got a mess load of them, for trade on a "all expense paid trip".

    It looks like the suppressor helped keep the animals around for follow up shots!

    We've got wild pigs already, can always use some new genetics I suppose. It's a deal if you throw in some Bobcats or Coyotes.
