    “14000 square kilometres”...far out. It’s not like the region has copious grass to feed the desired stock animals, let alone these little buggers

    Yup.....you mean rabble like this....



    Quote ....leading Authority.....I am shocked and distraught that - once again - the incompetence and negligence of these types of operations has allowed this situation to occur. Lets hope that this time the problem does not migrate to the north island. I do not want my tax money wasted on fixing these avoidable problems.

    I'm up in the North Island any one know any good DOC spots by Rotorua for wallaby? I'm curious as to what they taste like.

    for deer and wallabies the doc office recommended that we try te kopia reserve. the big lakes okataina and tarawera are closed til the end of january but the others are open still.

    He pretty much said that any of the lakes will have some hopping around.

    Think of an animal that eats grass for a living... any animal will do... well, they taste very much like that. Personally I think they taste better than a number of the more obvious species we eat on a regular basis. Our whole family enjoys a nice roasted Wallaby back wheel. You need to cook them slowly though as they're quite lean.

    Lets put it this way, Ive been making the pilgrimage with a few mates to a friends farm near Albury for the last 5 years and getting better at shooting them every year. Others shoot this property so there are always wallaby carcasses lying around often with pig rooting beside them so the pigs dont seem to like them!.
    We have found that the tail is the best bit, casseroled like neck chops but the meat on its own just tastes bland.
