The Southern Lakes Branch is part of the National Association of the New Zealand Deerstalkers Association.

Due to the nature of the Queenstown population;  the branch attracts people from all over the world, we have a good mix of Kiwis,  as well as a good mix of "new" Kiwis from the UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, Ireland, Australia, Czech Republic, India and many more.

You don't need to be a member to come to a meeting or indeed have to come to every meeting if you are a member. Just get in touch if you are keen to be part of a local hunting community and nationally recognised association.
