Howie Morrison


New channel, new adventures, new locations with the familiar humour & sharp eye skills for spotting animals to knocking them down!

Howie has been the face of our very popular program “Hunting Aotearoa” for seven series and has developed a huge rapport with hunters throughout New Zealand.

Australia and neighbouring Pacific Island groups like Niue, Fiji, Samoa and Hawaii have also tuned in to Howie’s on screen performance over the years making Hunting Aotearoa a regular household programme.

4 years down the track and Howie is back in action bringing his friendly and cheeky personality back to the screen and on a new channel “Choice TV” 

Howie has also added an extra element strumming up some friendly tunes to wrap up each show. It’s what he also loves doing best “entertaining”.

Entertainer and broadcaster Howie Morrison Jnr was born and raised in Rotorua and still lives there. He was 7 years old when his entertainer father, the late Sir Howard Morrison, took him on his first hunt near Rotorua. When his dad was performing overseas, Morrison stayed with an aunt and uncle who would get him out hunting most weekends. These days, he prefers pig hunting – “It’s a challenge with the pig and the dog and the mud” – but admits, with a laugh, he has “climbed many a tree” when faced with an angry tusker.

Kapa haka performance as well as hunting have been big parts of Morrison’s life, right through the years he worked in a joinery factory, on a farm, and in jobs such as tree pruner, scaffolder, painter – rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist in his dad’s band, the Howard Morrison Quartet. 

Throughout this new series of Hunting Aotearoa Howie has travelled to many places around the country catching up with new friends as they show off some of their magic spots they enjoy hunting on every week. 

Howie also takes a quick trip to the Island of Niue in search of wild pigs, a place in need of culling, a show well worth watching!

Don’t forget to tune in on Choice TV 18th May through to the 10th August Wednesdays at 930pm.

As Howie always says “CHOICE”
