History

The North Canterbury Deerstalkers Association began in July 1949 when at a public meeting it was decided to form a branch of the New Zealand Deerstalkers Association, based in North Canterbury. On 17th July 1958, the branch became incorporated under the Incorporated Societies Act.


Today, we are one of the largest branches, with about 300 members, a part of a national organisation of approximately 7,000 members with over 50 branches spread from Northland to Southland. The goal of NZDA is to promote and regulate the sport of big game hunting in New Zealand.
