The following instance he has related to me among many. That he was once present, when a rattle sake, about three feet and half in length, had bit a horse as he was feeding in a meadow which had been mowed. The snake being observed by some workmen, was instantly surrounded by them, who, with long sticks, confined the animal to a small spot of ground in the same meadow.

Any organization is only as strong as its membership, so members of the NZDA have written this book. Each contributor an acknowledged expert in his or her field. They have described the status of each of the large game animal species in New Zealand and their potential for tomorrow's hunters together with a review of firearms legislation as it really is. Also covered is the massive contribution the Association is making to the education of hunters throughout New Zealand by the NZDA HUNTS programme and the building of new and modern range facilities where acknowledged experts can pass on shooting and mountaincraft skills."
