I am building a deer cullers museum in Arrowtown.
I have restored a relocated old hut in which I will put Manuka pole and sack bunks.
I have built a tradition corrugated iron chimney on the side based on ones from your website and the artificial solid floor will go in soon.
There is an old .303 to hang on the wall and I will taxidermy and hind leg and some deer tails. It will be lite with Hurricane Lamps to provide the scene.
I need help sourcing artifacts from the culling era. In particular I would like an old pair of hob nail boots, flour tins (or similar), knives, packs, ammo pouches and a Swandri and black wool singlet.
Can you ask your members if they have anything they wish to donate.
I can be contacted on 03 442 3006.
It would be great to have any old pay-slips, note books, tally’s and photos also.

Anyone remember Ken Briggs from NZ Deers Cullers Inc back in the 60's? I think he was living in the southland area at the time.

GOLDEN HILLS HUT mustering hut used by deer cullers near Ngamatea sheep station. Owners of the land, Owhaoko B&D Trust are wanting to restore the old mustering hut and preserve it as an historic sight. It was used a lot by deer cullers and rabbiters as well. Does anyone have photos dating before 1980's? Earlier the better. I read where some deer cullers renovated it a little in 1956/7. Would be grateful for any info. Thanks.

I am looking for any information at all in relation to my late Uncle Brian Grady, killed deer culling in the Haast in April 1949. I have been twice to his grave when growing up.
Any help much appreciated.

Good afternoon, my name is Daniel and I'm currently completing a university assignment on the new Zealand Deer Cull. Can you please tell me how many people were killed and injured as a result of the cull? I'm sorry if this sounds insensitive, my assignment focusses on the positive aspects of the industry, but I can't seem to find this information and it's important to set up the background and show how difficult the job was. Thank you.

I am researching four Ruahine NZFS Huts: Smiths Stream (Creek), Sentry Box, Top Maropea, and Waterfall. Archive info. has given me bugger all, so a chat with the original builders and cullers who used the hut would be the best info. Also pictures would be gold, be it pre-existing tent camps and old photos of the hut. Memorable stories of life in and around the hut I need as well. Cheers.

I worked for the Manawatu Rabbit Board after leaving culling in 1969 and met another older culler there Ken Payne. He told me that there had been another hut on the Ruahine Corner Hut site previous to the one before the one there now. The one ther now is the third. Does anyone have a photo of that first one?
