NZDA Auckland - COVID-19 Update

All NZDA Auckland club events and activities are cancelled until further notice. This includes all Range activities. Once the 4 week isolation period has been lifted or reviewed, we will be in a position to make arrangements as to when normal club activities can begin and will communicate these out in due course.

We recognize isolating during the Roar period is one of the biggest asks of a hunting community, but to ensure the safety of the wider community and to ensure a quick resolution is brought to this developing issue we ask all members to adhere to the guidelines and most importantly, keep themselves safe during this time.

We run party hunts at least once per month. Normally in the shape of

 Road-end, Walk-in or Fly-in. Rain, hail or shine a group of members will drag themselves into the hills in search of (primarily) deer. The type of hunts vary, catering for all budgets and levels of experience.
