    I don't understand the system and don't have any mates so I won't be going in the ballot this year

    I thought you had to put everyone's name down when you enter the ballot?

    That's the official line, but it's not like the heli pilot asks for id or even proof you are the block holder before he takes you in.....

    That's right, I've even had the chopper pilot tell me there's people already booked to go into my block the same time as me lol and I'd say if I hadn't booked the flight they would have been in there

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Hopefully one day the ballot will be sorted and only tax paying residents of NZ will be allowed to use them without a guide.

    This could be a bit annoying if an AATH operator decides he / she likes the look of your block !

    QUOTE

    Aerial-assisted trophy hunting using a helicopter will be permitted in the Wilderness Areas during part of the ballot period.


    Apart from this, no helicopter wild-animal carcass or live recovery for deer, chamois or tahr is allowed during the ballot period in the Wilderness Areas. If you see any of this happening, record as much information as possible including helicopter registration (numbers and letters displayed on the machine) photos or video footage, and report this to the nearest DOC office as soon as possible so there can be an investigation.

    Yep we had 2 choppers in our block and the next block taking animals during our Ballot this year.
    One did two trips and the other one trip.
    Certainly annoyed the sht out of us as we watched them go over the faces we had been doing.
    Them flying over our camp with animal underslung was ultimate insult.
