Bruce Banwell has been involved with the New Zealand Deerstalkers’ Association since 1948.  He has been a member of eight different branches, president of three, executive member of four and secretary and treasurer of Southland branch.  He is currently a National Judge at the National Trophy Competitions held at Annual Conference each year.

 

His hunting and interest has found him in almost every corner of New Zealand where deer are found. His research into this animal as a species has taken him to the majority of deer range of the northern hemisphere from the Hebrides, across the Eurasian continent to the Rocky Mountains and Manitoba including North Africa, Corsica and Sardinia, where he carried out a population status survey for the World Wildlife Monitoring Centre in 1996.  He has researched the origins of Red deer, Sika, Wapiti and Fallow and in particular those which influenced the various races and strains of deer that found their way here to New Zealand.  One of his earlier books Wapiti in New Zealand has been regarded as a reference book on Wapiti since it was first published in 1966.

 

His knowledge of deer has resulted in invitations to address international symposiums, be the guest of foreign research groups accompanying wildlife biologists in the field, particularly in Asia and visit many countries.  His writing appears regularly in journals and magazines here in New Zealand, Australia and other overseas countries, including regular contributions to the British Deer Association’s journal, Deer.

 

The Wapiti and the Moose, is the second in a series of books that will eventually form the official N.Z.D.A. record series, covering the top trophies taken in New Zealand for all game animals recognized by the organisation.  Each work will look at the origin, liberation, spread and establishment, present status, location and how to hunt information, as well as listing all known trophies and their Douglas Score statistics, where available, as recorded by the New Zealand Deerstalkers’ Association.
