Welcome aboard Manu and thanks for posting this info. Hopefully you'll post more about hunting in New Zealand as it's a bucket list hunt for a lot of us.

Thanks recreational hunters here have access to a large range of game animals red deer roar have started now in some areas thru to April. May is our duckshooting season & upland birds pheasants, cali quail etc, we have free roaming turkeys & Canadian geese we chase them no limits and turkeys too. Sika rut hunting from late march to may, we do have Elk here thanks to POTUS 26 under management controlled hunting blocks and they use a ballot system thats in South Island. It's a shame the Moose didn't get a chance to breed they were sadly "killed off" I liked the US Big horn sheep they would thrive over here for sure.

A few points to add NZ FISH & GAME manage Waterfowl, upland game birds & also Rainbow and brown trout fishing, & they issue both licenses, NZ Regions varies on bird bag numbers but trout fish are set daily catch nationwide. I live & work in the farming community & have hunting access to feral turkeys & Canadian geese on farming stations. You can ask farmers if you're be able to hunt thier lands, most are good for access if there are problem geese raiding crops & turkeys if there are too many. Farms either bordering on national parks or forestry blocks have red deer, pigs & goats so the farming community has potential for Hunting & worth looking into.
