Petition To Protect The Use Deer Dogs On Public Land
Sign this petition to protect and enhance our right to use Big Game Indicating Dogs on Public Land In New Zealand.
There is a big meeting coming up with the Department Of Conservation to discuss the ongoing recreational use of the Kaimai Ranges. Paul Michaels will be attending this meeting to represent all users of deer dogs in New Zealand. He will use figures collected in this petition to advise the Department of Conservation on peoples recreational interest in using Deer Dogs Or Big Game Indicating Dogs in the Kaimai Ranges and In New Zealand in general.
Indicating dogs are being banned from more and more areas every year. So it is very important that we put our hands up now to protect and enhance our rights to use indicating dogs on our public land.
The Kaimais is a good first step to preserving and enhancing our rights now because the future recreational use of this area is currently up for discussion. Once we succeed here, we can duplicate that to preserve and enhance our rights to use big game indicating dogs in other areas. We can then restore our rights to use indicating dogs in public land areas we have already been banned from.
It is very important that we work with the Department of Conservation to help them manage our public land in the right way. The first step is to put our hands up and let them know how we intend to use our land.
