HUNTING INFORMATION & EDUCATION
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ADVENTURE HUNTING
At Adventure Hunting, our focus on offering education and training within hunting practises and environments is to ensure the safety of each individual. So many hunting accidents and tragedies happen all over the world due to simple mistakes or lack of education. Our aim is to arm everyone who passes through Adventure Hunting with the skills and knowledge to inspire a conscious effort in keeping safety the number 1 priority. All hunters and non hunters within the Adventure Hunting block will be required to wear an item of high vis / day glow to limit any confusion in low visibility situations.
All visitors to Adventure Hunting are required to partake in a brief induction, regardless of any previous experience or familiarity with the area. This is a way for us to be completely confident that everyone has the information necessary to stay safe and enjoy their experience with us. Within our own exclusive hunting block, you and your party are the only people with access at that time. This enables us to ensure your safety but also a rare and valuable hunting experience without the concern of other hunters nearby. However when guiding hunts on DOC land, we can’t promise the same thing, which is why a quick induction is necessary to keep the party informed on staying safe as a group, towards other hunters, and what to do if something goes wrong.
We have taken the necessary steps to confidently say that your visit with Adventure Hunting is going to be as exciting and safe as possible. In NZ there are no legal requirements for qualifications or necessary experience to become a hunting guide which can lead to a dangerous encounter. Experience in the landscape, climate and of the Game are just a small part of hunting and the essential knowledge necessary for staying safe out there. NZ is known for its harsh and unpredictable terrain and climate which has caught out many hunters and hikers in the past.
Our guides are members of the NZ Professional Hunting Guides Association (NZPHGA) and have extensive experience and knowledge of hunting in New Zealand. The NZPHGA offer training and courses to ensure all associated hunting guides are equipped with the skills required to offer safe and educated guided hunts in NZ.
Within our exclusive hunting block we have a level of control which is rare in hunting, we know the area like the back of our hand. Potential landscape hazards have been acknowledged and are identified to the party to reduce the risk of injury. On public DOC land the area is so large and the terrain is so unpredictable that we have had to take extra steps to ensure your experience is as safe as possible. All of our guides are trained and confident in advanced First Aid, with all public DOC land hunts including the use of GPS and personal locating beacons so that whatever happens, the necessary help can locate you.
Avoiding risk of accident or injury is our main priority which is why we have enlisted the help of a trusted and reliable affiliated Health and Safety company to ensure your experience is action packed, and safe. Unfortunately hunting is a high risk activity and accidents can happen anywhere, which is why we have taken the necessary steps through our own education, and have full liability insurance in place to cover the possibility of damage or accident.
