As promoted in the special edition Fish & Game magazine, Eastern Region are offering junior licence holders the chance to go into a draw to win one of eight slots available to hunt in the sought after Fish & Game owned wetland in Paengaroa, Bay of Plenty.

2007 06180015

Two well-built and maintained maimais, nestled in raupo, offer plenty of open water to shoot over. Turn up with your personal gear, callers, decoys, gun, and waders (a must have), and hopefully the ducks and weather will cooperate.


The programme is aimed strictly at junior licence holders only.  The supervising adult (with firearms licence) will act as a mentor for the day’s hunt, and hopefully enjoy the outing, passing on their skills and knowledge.


Each maimai will have one hunter (and supervisor), and the wetland will only be hunted during the weekends of the mallard season – excluding Opening Weekend when the wetland is closed to all hunting. The chosen juniors will be able to hunt both Saturday and Sunday of their allocated weekend.


The weekends available are; 8-9 May, 15-16 May, 22-23 May, 29-30 May. Weekends will be allocated and are non transferable.


Some conditions apply so you will need to read the information below. Access details are also below.


Should a junior licence holder you know want to enter this draw they will need to provide;

-          Full name

-          2021 game bird licence number

-          Address (email or postal)

-          Contact phone number

-          Supervising adult name and firearms licence number

Email these details to jmeikle@fishandgame.org.nz with all entries randomly drawn.
