Hunters are reminded to hunt only in areas where hunting is permitted, abide by the conditions of their firearms licences and make safety their first priority.
"It is crucial that hunters follow the law and safety rules" says Senior Sergeant Simon King of the Wellington Police. "Police will treat any breaches extremely seriously."
