Tutor: Taiamai Corker. 

Join us for an immersive hunting workshop where you will gain valuable insights into wild game management and the principles behind selective harvesting. Throughout this workshop, you will have the opportunity to hunt and gather wild deer and goats, providing a hands-on experience in field dressing and breaking down the animals for home use.

Our knowledgeable instructor will guide you through the process, ensuring you understand the importance of responsible hunting practices and the ethical considerations involved. Please note that if you choose to bring a firearm, you must possess a valid firearms licence. Basic firearms use will be covered for those interested.

This intimate workshop is limited to only three participants, allowing for personalised instruction and ample opportunity for learning. As a bonus, you will have the privilege of taking home the venison you have personally harvested.

Embark on this unique hunting workshop and develop the skills and understanding necessary for sustainable hunting practices and the utilisation of game meat for your own home use.

At Kōanga, we recognize the vital role of food in ecosystems, cultures, communities, and our overall health. Therefore, all the meals served during our courses adhere to these principles:

  • Locally sourced
  • Organic
  • Unrefined
  • Nutrient-dense
  • Traditional
  • Prepared following the principles of Weston A. Price

For your convenience, we offer very basic camping facilities on-site, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the experience. Alternatively, you can opt to stay in Wairoa at your own cost. If you’re travelling from afar and need accommodation the night before or after the workshop, kindly inform us in advance. During this time, participants usually arrange their own food and cooking facilities.

We look forward to welcoming you here at Kōanga Institute.
