Deer and pigs can be hunted from here. We have guides available by arrangement. Access by Helicopter to and from Bushaven can also be arranged.


The Urutawa reserve and all reserves around it require hunter and dog permits. Free hunters permits are available online for this area. Use of dogs requires a permit issued by Gisborne/Whakatane Area Office or Field Centres. Kiwi aversion certificate, proof of microchipping or branding/tattoos need to be sighted.


This link shows the whole area that can be hunted with your permit - see Bushaven's little pocket of land shown within the Urutawa Reserve.
