East Harbour Regional Park Article February 2021

Posted on 28 February 2021

Back in October Trap and Trigger, professional hunters undertook eight days of deer hunting in the Northern Forest as part of Greater Wellington’s deer control program. Night shooting and the ability to respond to public sightings resulted in nine pigs, three goats and thirteen deer culled. The public hunting ballot will be available in April 2021 and this will be followed by another eight days professional hunting. Together with MIRO we aim to look into how to measure the impact of deer in the Northern Forest as part of the Key Native Ecosystem plan.
