Hunting begins at 7:00pm on the Thursday before Queen's Birthday weekend. Teams can hunt throughout the Fiordland region and also the wider Southland and Otago area to bag the three species; deer, pig, or a pest. Hunting teams must then get to the weigh-in before the 2:00pm cut-off deadline on Sunday.
During the course of the afternoon there will be pig carrying competitions for men, ladies, children, and a combined adult and child section - and possum-slinging too! Great fun and great prizes up for grabs.
There will be a major prize up for grabs donated by Te Anau Helicopter Services. This will be in the form of a shoot-out involving 4 random teams who have caught all 3 species.
