Currently it is lawful to shoot from a road provided it does not endanger lives - but some farmers in this area think that it should be banned in an attempt to stop poaching on their private properties.
Red Deer In Kaikoura
A total ban would cause difficulty for local farmers who routinely shoot from roads onto their own properties.
- There are several distinct issues being raised here by the property owners - Trespass, Poaching, Careless, Unsafe rifle shooting, Tourist business, Commercial deer shooting etc. - but the sporting shooter seems to be the easiest target for them to blame and attack.
P.S. Kaikoura means Crayfish Food (Kai = food)
