Updates for roar 2021

A ballot will not be run this year due to the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on the 2020 Haast roar ballot hunting periods. Party leaders were given the option to rollover their ballots to 2021. Most parties have taken this option leaving few available hunting blocks for 2021.

  • A one-off non-refundable fee of $40 will be charged for each block.
  • Only 1 block can be booked per party.
  • Party leaders who apply for a ballot must be intending to hunt the block with their party.
