Since waterfowl hunting began in New Zealand, the Waikato/Hauraki area has been known as the country's ‘Duck Factory.’ Those living in the Auckland/Waikato region have ready access to the best waterfowl hunting in the country – most of it within an hour’s drive of Auckland City.
We have a range of maps which are intended to point you in the right direction by identifying the major hunting areas on public land, how to find them and get to know where the action is. Major areas of wetland owned by the Crown and Fish & Game are readily open to public access via roads, walkways and boat ramps.
While the maps online here represent the most comprehensive guide ever published to hunting in the Waikato, there just isn’t room to list every hot spot. By exploring and asking other hunters, whitebaiters, eelers, landowners, sports shop employees and others who get out into the country you’ll latch onto other possies and build up a comprehensive knowledge of your chosen area.
