Swamp Comp 2017
Trap Predators - Win Prizes!
- No paperwork to fill in before hunting - we'll get your info when you bring tails in for counting.
- Trap or shoot ferrets, stoats and weasels preferably around wetlands.
- Remove and freeze the tails. Bring the tails into your local Hunting & Fishing New Zealand store during the month of November for counting.
- Every tail entered equals one chance in the draws! The more tails the more chances of a win.
Non qualifying predators...
Every feral cat, rat, or even hedgehog trapped is a bonus. While these animals can't be entered, your prize is the satisfaction of wiping out a predator that targets duck eggs, ducklings or even full grown hens. If hawks are attacking fully protected species or farm poultry your local DOC office can issue a permit allowing you to remove them. Hawk info is available at www.doc.govt.nz/about-us/our-role/legislation/wildlife-act/
2016 was another solid year for the Swamp Comp with around 200 hunters or hunting groups entering, and 2000 tails handed in, The event has the support of Fish & Game and DOC so let's make 2017 the most successful year ever.
