Safety and Training

Hunters, avid in their passion of the outdoors, pass on their knowledge to peers and young people to continue our outdoor heritage. Lack of training can lead to accidents, unsuccessful hunts and poor game animal management outcomes. The GAC is constantly looking for opportunities to help hunters become better educated.

There are a number of organisations that provide training and resources on hunting safety. Some of these are online resources while a number of hunting organisations provide hands-on training courses.

The GAC is also developing further resources in conjunction with our NZ hunting sector partners to support our objective of improving hunter-led game animal management.
