DOC’s annual hunting competition is gearing up for another season.
The red deer hunting comp, which takes place in the Pureora Forest Park, has been run by DOC since 1987.
Hunting is an important use of public land, and the competition celebrates users and their sport in a fun prizegiving afternoon. This family-friendly event includes a free BBQ and games for the kids. The junior section of the roaring competition is particularly popular with lots of young ones giving it a go.
This year the competition starts March 19 and entries are open until 2.00 pm Sunday 29 April.
As usual prizegiving will be hosted in Pureora Village and the sponsors have again generously agreed to offer some fantastic prizes over a range of categories. The ugliest head category can always do with more entries, and each head entered goes into the draw for a mystery bag of prizes worth approximately $1000.
