New to hunting? Find out everything you need to know..


Just been out on your first hunt and got a real taste for the thrill of the chase? Want to get more involved but don't know where to start? Why not take a look at the Department of Conservation website to find out all the basics.

There's a wealth of information for novice hunters and even pros. You can find out more about what to hunt, when to hunt it, where to go hunting in New Zealand, how to get permits, how to stay safe and what gear you'll need for your hunting trips. 

Every hunter needs a good riflescope to ensure an accurate shot, and pair of hunting binoculars are always recommended to help you locate your target in the first place. Once you've pulled together your list of hunting equipment, choose the perfect riflescope and binoculars from our collections.

And don't forget to stay safe and have fun!
