Hastings Deerstalkers’ Association

Welcome to the Hastings Branch of the New Zealand Deer Stalkers Association (NZDA).

The National NZDA Web Site can be accessed HERE

We have been a fixture for local hunters, wildlife photographers, target shooters and outdoorsmen for the last 60 years in Hawke's Bay. Our branch has a reasonably diverse group of members from all occupations and backgrounds. Our common interests in recreational big game hunting is what brings us all together, whether it it is with a rifle, hunting bow or a camera.

Typically, our members are hunters who like to put wild game meat on the table, but if the opportunity arises to take a trophy animal we certainly wouldn't be passing it up.
