Hunter with dogs
If you wish to use dogs while hunting you will need both a hunting permit as well as a dog permit and stick to areas where dogs are allowed.
There is a limit of 4 dogs per hunting party in the Mt Richmond Forest Park.
Dogs must be kept under control and not used for hunting until well within the hunting area.
Dogs should be on the lead when walking on tracks and note that dogs are not permitted inside or under DOC huts.
Dogs are only allowed on campsites that are specified as being dog access campsites (listed below).
The DOC office periodically runs weka aversion training which reduces the number of weka killed by dogs.To find out more about this training contact:
