    anti 1080 people threatening doc helicopter operators.

    anti 1080 protestors threatening helicopters and people involved in 1080 drops.a bit over the top to threaten to kill people I think .I don't like 1080 myself but it is going to the extreme to threaten and claim they have more guns than the police.makes genuine hunters and people against 1080 look bad when a few nutters do this.

    It'll be one idiot claiming to be a spokesperson for all. Probably mentally deranged.

    Not a good look for hunters in NZ that's for sure. More fuel for the antis.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Don't include me on the list!! Its pisses me off when the tar brush comes out!! Say it as it is "one, or a few Fwits are threatening to do it" Not "HUNTERS" but who's twisting who's arm? Hunters sounds much better than the truth and riles many more people? Orchestrated?

    Well the last 1080 scare ended up being someone from within the poison/pest control industry.

    Yeah easy for someone to frame hunters. Unfortunately there is likely to be a lot more of this BS it's just too easy to do.

    On the other hand deer are not by-kill they are a target species for the 1080. DOC should just come clean. They didn't want shooters in their first because it will disperse the deer into the surrounding areas. Not what you want if you are targeting them. However the deer will be back.

    Pretty easy assumption to make. Especially when the threat is followed up with plans to do more illegal deer releases.

    Personally I abhor 1080 but as opposed as I am to the use of the hideous poison anywhere in our country, I don't sanction or support this sort of stupid sensationalist threat against people and property. I am proud to have been a hunter and find it infuriating that the pursuit is being brought into disrepute by association. We all know that by and large the media are fuckwits but whomever has made this threat is even more of one.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Which part @kiwijames?

    The shooting causes the animals to disperse is precisely what I was told by the manager of a biosecurity team.
