Whether in pairs or more during deer hunting, people should stay together – do not separate one person from the other such is the new law section five.

People who are obtaining new gun licenses must know this when they go hunting in forest areas. This new law has come about through a Rotorua woman who implored Police to make this a law when her partner James Dodds was killed.

Widow of James Dodds Gabby Molloy said her husband and a friend Henry Worsp went  deer hunting last September, Henry Worsp shot James Dodds thinking he was a fellow deer, James Dodds died instantly.

Police are also encouraging people to get into a mindset of thinking is it a man rather is an animal.

Ka haere nga tangata tokorua, tokomaha ake ranei ki te whai tia hei nga wa Takurua me piri tahi kaua tetahi o ratau e wehe atu i tetahi atu tangata  hei te ture hou tuarima. No reira ko nga tangata ka whai raihana mau pu koira tetahi o nga ture me pupuri i te hinengaro a me whakamana i roto i nga wahi whakangau kararehe i nga ngaherehere. He ture hou tenei na tetahi wahine o Rotorua i inoitia nga Pirihimana kia whakaturehia no muri i te matehanga o tana hoa tane o James Dodds. Ki nga korero a Gabby Molloy pouwaru o James Dodds i haere tana tane raua ko tetahi hoa ko Henry Worsp ki te ngahere i tera marama Mahuru pahore a ka wehe raua, otira na Henry Worsp i puhia a James Dodds me tana pohehe he tia fellow a mate tonu atu a James Dodds. Kei te ki hoki nga Pirihimana me huri nga hinengaro tangata ki te whakaaro he tangata ke tuatahi kaua he tia, kaua rawa he kararehe.
