Join us for the third annual South Island Ladies Hunt, an all-women hunting trip hosted by the Southern Lakes NZDA Branch.  To see what you're getting into take a look at this video from last year's trip:

20 spots are open for female NZDA members to assemble in the Mavora area (between Queenstown and Te Anau) for a long weekend of authentic backcountry hunting, food and fun.  

Trip accommodation is situated between 2 amazing DOC hunting blocks – Eyre Mountains and Snowden Forest/Mavora Lakes – and we will have blocks and maps organised for safe hunting with red deer, fallow deer, chamois and pigs in the area.
