    Kaimai deer cullers?

    Heard from a mate that there were rumours that the deer cullers were sent into the kaimai's recently? Any truth to this

    Cheers

    Good luck to them if there not local there going to have a shit time to start with.
    Really can't see them doing this as the Kaimais gets a lot of hunting pressure.
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along

    Hopefully you're right. He seemed fairly convinced that they were in there.

    Sometimes Regional Councils contract cullers when deer are being a nuisance in land that they administer. Just little hot spots usually. Its no big deal.

    Most of the current cullers, and their contracts, are focussed on goats.

    Don't think they would make much of a dent in the population. The bush they live in works more in favor of the deer then the hunter.

    Did goats out the back of KatiKati in the 80s for farmers, the bush definitely favoured the animals.

    Cool. Some people on Facebook were saying that they heard them on the cb radio and that a helicopter was doing some.

    I have never encountered Amy goats in the kaimai's. They must be doing a good job.

    How much area have you covered in there?
    Werawhakaui?

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    Not very much. Wairere falls and te tuhi.

    Talked to people at my local nzda who have not seen many and they've been heaps.

    Yeah I think most of them are at the Athenree end. I too have not seen any. Only hunted Whaka and Upper Kaimai.

    I have read a couple of forum posts over the last few months regarding deer numbers in the northern Kaimais upsetting DOC. They want to keep deer out of the Coromandel so don't like too many deer north of Te Aroha.
    I wouldn't think a helicopter would be too successful in the Kaimai ranges, but would get a few deer by working the farmland and edges if they could get permission from the landowners.

    Deer and goats are like apples and oranges as far as I'm concerned.

    So long as they dont target the nicely growing Fallow herd in there im not worried. Its just starting to produce some nice heads.
