Game Bird Hunting in the Wellington Region

There are plenty of game bird hunting opportunities available on public land in the Wellington Fish & Game Region. All the information you need on where to hunt and how to get there is contained in a little booklet that you can get by phoning the Fish & Game office in Palmerston North, or calling in to your licence agent.

Some of the very best game hunting is available within two hours drive of the major urban centres. What’s more Fish & Game has already taken care of the job of negotiating access; all that you need to unlock the hunting opportunities on offer is a little white booklet aptly titled the ‘Game Bird Hunting Access Permit’.
