Store Owner - James Morris

North Canterbury Rivers to Ranges officially opened for business in October 2019. The Rangiora store is proudly, locally owned and operated by James who has a lifetime of experience and knowledge about the outdoors.

James is a passionate hunter and fisherman raised on his family’s sheep and beef farm, where he has spent many years working in the agriculture sector. James has also been involved in the hunting industry for well over a decade, writing for magazines here in New Zealand and abroad, as well as working with Hunters Element as a Pro Team member.

When James is absent from his busy Rivers to Ranges store, chances are he will be out on the family farm or roaming the southern alps in search of one of the fantastic game animals the south island has to offer.
