Welcome to the North Auckland Branch of the New Zealand Deerstalkers ASSOCIATION.

The NZDA was founded in 1937 to promote recreational hunting and shooting sports.  It is a national body with branches 
throughout New Zealand.

The North Auckland Branch was established in 1958,
on its current property
at Riverhead.

    We offer:

  • Youth activity programmes
  • Hunting and bush craft training
  • Public access for recreational activities
  • Game animal protection and management
  • Firearms safety training
  • National shooting competitions
  • The building and maintenance of huts
  • Participation in the conservation debate
  • Communication with members through magazines and newsletters


We promote safe, responsible use of firearms, and a respect for native flora and fauna. We believe in the principle of public ownership of wildlife generally, and seek to prevent the creation of privileged hunting / exclusive access to the publicly owned fish and wildlife assets that belong to all New Zealanders.

Visitors intending to come and shoot
on the range should read our visitor policy first.
