Recent incidents of people hunting on land without permission
have prompted police to issue a warning.
Senior Sergeant John Fookes, of Queenstown, said in a
statement hunting must only take place with the permission of
the owner or lawful occupier.
Police had received reports of people hunting on land between
Gorge Rd and the Moonlight Track and at the weekend had twice
attended incidents at Arthurs Point.
Three people were subsequently issued with trespass notices
and police inquiries were ongoing.
Snr Sgt Fookes said police were also aware of complaints in
the Queenstown Hill and Moke Lake areas.
It was the responsibility of the hunter to ensure they had
permission to hunt on the land and anyone found unlawfully
hunting could face prosecution.
Last month, police warned a 21-year-old Queenstown man who
had been shooting with an air rifle near the Lake Hayes track
and rowing club.
