we have a couple of target bows/ hunting bows with alluminium and carbon fibre arrows,these are just as deadly as a rifle ,but when I asked our shipper about them he said no problem as they will be classified as sporting equipment,
when i was in NZ last year there were far more weapons in the shops than you see here ,Hunting any form of wildlife is a major sport in NZ they even have Possum hunts to raise cash for school funds
