,,, not sure when they were introduced but I'd guess the late 1800s or early 1900s. Possums (different to the US sort) were introduced too, from Aussie. They run at around 70 million now and are pests too. One thing you should know... New Zealand has a 365 day hunting season here with no cost for permits. All sorts of deer and even Himalayan Thar can be shot without retrictions on numbers. In January I'm taking on a small business close to a range of mountains which will mean I'll be able to get into hunting a lot easier than in the past. Bang!

Now that is not completely true, we were not allowed to bag but 18 mallards per day during duck season, so there is some control. And in some places you are not allowed to shoot deer from helicopters although you can chase them down the mountain in one to the area where everybody else is waiting with the rifles.
