Special recognition for unique deer
1 August 2014

A hunters' group and Tuhoe kaumatua have agreed a herd of deer only found in Te Urewera should be given special recognition.

The Deerstalkers' Association say the Rusa is unique to the area and has a high-trophy value.

Both Tuhoe and the organisation have both agreed the deer should be managed by the new Game Animal Council.

Chair of the Association's iwi committee, Alec McIver said their relationship with the tribe is strong.

Alec McIver said the Rusa is found in the Galatea foothills near Murupara, along the Whakatane River, and around Maungapohatu in Bay of Plenty.
