    "We found no evidence of even short-term negative effects of aerial 1080 operations on numbers of deer encounters and deer seen."

    Good old "stuff" seems to have removed the "right of reply" pre censored comments column from anything controversial these days.

    More likely the counted poorly to start with. I would be expecting their methods to be the problem rather than anything the deer would do. 1080 cannot increase a deer population which instantly tells anyone with half a clue or more in science that their monitoring method is at fault. Even if the 1080 was a dud batch (or accidentally dropped outside the area) then the effect at best could have been no change.

    Maybe instead of 1080 they accidentally put little blue pills in it instead

    Well the science that is based on - anecdotal reports of people just, well, noticing things...is not exactly robust is it.

    To be cynical - it sounds like someone making up something that paints the department in a less bad light to deer hunters.

    But the realist in me, judging by the DOC workers I have met, is that they don't know a thing about deer at all and would be the last people I would value the opinion of in this matter.


    From my own personal experience of an area in South Westland I know very well that was 1080'd last time - the exact opposite is what I observed post-drop. A distinct and obvious decrease in deer and deer activity.
