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."
