Nelson Branch

The Nelson branch was formed in post war New Zealand, with meetings on a bi-monthly basis and a member base now in the hundreds!!!

Nelson is situated in the heart of some of New Zealands best hunting including the Cobb Valley, Nelson Lakes and Marlborough.
From Nelson our members have access to a variety of game including chamois, wild pigs, red deer, fallow deer, goats, rabbits and possums.

We are a happy, friendly and easily approachable club with a passionate and focussed committee.
