    Newer and younger members this is for you! Even seasoned pros you might pick up a tip or two.

    Ever shot a trophy animal and not known how to prepare it correctly, ready for the Taxidermist?

    Ever been to a skinning demo and found that place too crowded, or the speaker goes too quickly?!

    If you are going hunting in the next six-months you never know when that trophy potential stag, buck, bull or boar will come walking out in front of you!

    Well, we have the workshop for you!

    Our branch has been offered an amazing opportunity by one of members, we are able to offer club members an interactive workshop where you can expect to be on the end of a knife, scalpel and spoon. We are very lucky to have a club member who is a professional Taxidermist walk us through the process of taking out a head skin, working around eyes, ears and lips with tips and tricks that the pros use.

    Field care and salting of a head skin will be covered as well as a few other tips to take care of the skin until you are out of the bush.

    Space is limited and $10 for members only and you must register and pay via our website - www.deerstalkers.co.nz/events

    NZDA Auckland is organizing a members only River Crossing Course on the 16th of Feb at the Vector Wero Whitewater Park starting at 8.45am.

    Qualified instructors will teach us how to assess dynamic river environments and basic hydrology and will cover a variety of techniques to safely cross turbulent white water before having the chance to swim the rapids. The course runs about 2 hours (1 hour water).

    Learn your limits for crossing backcountry waters and pick up a few new techniques to make sure you and your mates return safely from your hunt. If you are interested in attending this course there are still places available.

    *Please sign up using the link and pay online to secure your spot.

    *Tickets are $100 per person.

    Equipment to bring:

    • You will need your typical hunting gear for a day hunt
    • Boots and gear needs to be clean of mud/leaf matter.
    • Ideally: 40L or larger pack (full) with pack liner
    • To get the most value from the course, practice with what you will use in the bush.
