The Nelson branch was formed in post war New Zealand and incorporated in 1958. See our historic photos to get a sense of life as a member back then.
We meet on the last Tuesday of the month for Club nights and boast a growing membership now in the hundreds.
The Branch boasts two assets in Packers Creek Range and Red Deer Lodge in St Arnaud.
Nelson is situated in the heart of some of New Zealand's best hunting including the Cobb Valley, Nelson Lakes and Marlborough. Nelson/Tasman is also the gateway to Murchison and the Northern West Coast. These areas represent more wilderness public land hunting than you could ever hunt in one lifetime.
From Nelson our members have access to a variety of game including chamois, wild pigs, red deer, fallow deer, goats, rabbits and possums.
We are active, enthusiastic and approachable Branch with a passionate and diligent committee of volunteers that give their time to promote and protect hunting and shooting interest in the Nelson/Tasman region.
