    Its a pretty vauge discription bro. What exactly do you want to know? Do you have any experience personally with trapping. Do you have a contract available for private forestry or would you be relying on d.o.c land.

    there's a really good book - it was published about 30 years ago on "Possum trapping in NZ" think that was the title - not hard to read - I gave a copy to my boy when he was 9 and he picked up a lot of info. Google is your friend, even a library might still have one. Talk to your friendly local librarian and ask them to do a search for you.

    If ya poisoning you need a licence. $100 bux a kilo for fur,18 to 20 possoms a kilo depending on area and climate.

    Easy to set ur self up.
    Why would winz need to be involved.
    If they can supply the land and guarantee 40 coons a night then maybe.
    Other wise go for the cashys.
    The people that are trapping are trapping for a reason.
    That reason is they like to get off there arse and work.

    I'd also say you would have PLBs going off every time it rained or snowed.
    Or if there was a new burger with extra zing from KFC
