The man has been charged with obstructing a medical officer of health and unlawful hunting and is due to appear in court in June 2020.
"Police are and will continue to take breaches seriously," says Canterbury Rural Area Commander Inspector Peter Cooper.
"If you're thinking of going hunting during Alert Level 3, be sure to follow the strict rules.
