On-line permits available for hunters

10:27 am on 18 January 2011

Hunters are now able to apply on-line for permits to hunt on conservation land.

The permit will be emailed to the applicant along with updates on track closures and other management activities that may affect hunting in that specific area.

Conservation Minister Kate Wilkinson says the new system clarifies the process and will allow one permit to be issued for multiple areas in the country.

All permits will be valid for four months, and a current firearms licence is required first.
