"We are worried that a lot of our old film is disappearing as are the tales, and tellers of them from yester year, so we are keen to record some of these tales with one story leading to another. We try to capture some of the great stories of our time, the heritage which has helped to create the iconic kiwi." - Producer Dave McCarlie.


Southland Branch NZDA support South Coast Productions in their quest to capture New Zealand outdoors on film. Visit their website:

The website is owned by the NZ Deer Cullers Inc, a non-profit society with membership being ex and current government deer cullers.
Deer culling in New Zealand has an iconic and special place in the history of New Zealands' backcountry. A legacy of the Deer Culling era is the hundreds of huts, river crossings, and also the thousands of kilometres of cut tracks available today for public use and enjoyment. The huts, which were once our homes, are unique to New Zealand and enhance the backcountry experience for thousands of trampers, hunters and climbers each year.
There have been many books written by and about Deer Cullers, and of late much interest shown in our now long gone way of life. Through this website we hope to share experiences from that time.
