A Hunter’s Tale: A deep dive into hunting incidents in New Zealand

(pinned to top of page)

A Hunter’s Tale represents the most comprehensive exploration of hunting participation and incidents in New Zealand. Building on the success of There and Back (2016), this publication represents the first in a series of comprehensive ‘deep dives’ and explores hunting and firearms safety through the presentation of key insights. A Hunter’s Tale focuses on trends in participation, hunting related injuries, search and rescues as well as fatalities.
