New Zealand Fishing Charter Company Looks to Expand to Hunting from Boats
Fish and hunt - all from one boat! That sounds like a dream come true. Queenstown Fishing Charter company is looking to expand the activities allowed on Lakes Wakatipu, Wanaka and Hawea in New Zealand. They put in an application to Lakes Environmental to increase what they are allowed to do. Currently on their 6.5m boat they can fish and give scenic tours. The company wants to offer deer and goat hunts, skeet shooting and waterfowl hunts from the back of the boat. The company does have safety measures in mind for the public, allowing only one person at a time to shoot except for waterfowl where it would be one or two people at a time. They also plan on doing these activities in the remote parts of the lakes.
The goat and deer hunting is conditional on consent of both private landowners and the Department of Conservation, depending on where the hunting is proposed. From Otago Daily Times.
