Deer Hunting Ballot 2018 in East Harbour Regional Park is now CLOSED 

The Greater Wellington Regional Council is organising a ballot for a hunting block in East Harbour Regional Park during the end of March and April 2018.

Ballot entries must be received by 12noon on Thursday 1 March 2018. The ballot draw will be held on Friday 2 March 2018. Winners of the ballot will be notified by Friday 9 March 2018.

The hunting will play a part in controlling animals in the park and also provide an opportunity for recreational deer hunting within a designated deer hunting area.

Hunting of deer is available for 10 periods of three days each, with one balloted hunter and nominated partner allowed in the designated area at any given time.

To enter the ballot hunters (only one entry per person) should obtain a Ballot Entry Form and a Recreational Hunting Booklet. The cost to enter the ballot is $5 (non-refundable) by internet banking or EFTPOS at the Upper Hutt Office. The bank account details can be found on the Ballot Entry Form.

To enter the ballot download the following documents and include a copy of your Firearms Licence when you email/post through your application form.
