At Waitemata Hunt, an artificial scent is laid across the countryside during the Hunt meet.  Hounds, Huntsman, Master and the field of riders follow the scent over well prepared jumps, or through the farm gates.  We get to enjoy the thrill of following a pack of hounds at full cry, over some magnificent countryside.  Waitemata Hunt's territory is predominantly to the north west of Auckland, on many farms situated between Coatesville to the south, South Head to the west and State Highway 16 to the north.  

Joining the Waitemata Hunt is a rewarding and fun experience. The hunt offers an annual calendar of events including hunting, treks, hunt schools, hunter trials, day treks, orienteering, competitions, and non-mounted social events. 

We hunt once or twice a week during the 'hunt season' which is March - May. And outside of the hunt season run other activities.

Most members choose to pay the annual subscription by automatic payment, meaning you can spread the cost over the full year by paying weekly, fortnightly, or monthly rather than having to pay the membership fee all in one lump sum.
