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

    Head to dalys flat hut - Mr 8 shot a decent billy a few weeks back, 29" spread. Loads of "tourists' though so weekends are def out for shooting the riverbeds in that area,which is where we had a few goat sightings. MR Billy was shot on that big nob behind the hut, no chance of any tourists up there.

    always wondered if there were any fallow in the Kaimais, being smaller im sure they would have an easier time getting around in there than the reds.

    Not a lot of country North of Te Aroha!
    Not that Fallow need a lot.
    I heard that they spent a couple million back in the 80's to sort the goats out using Judas goats seemed to do a good job culling the goat population. One of our neighbours was a key man at the old Gordon base.
    Gave me all the old trap line tracks. Helped me in not getting lost on some of the more hairy parts of the Waikato side of things didn't help much in dodging the supplejack that justs take time and patients

    Cullers are being put into the Waitewheta to reduce goat numbers ,few in past the Hut & up around Tiere rd ,old mill site threw to Woodlands rd hut .
    Deer won't go past the Karangahaki gorge area is lacking mineral & trace elements the deer need. In short its "Cattle sick country" .They been in the
    Kaimai way over hundred years if they where going to populate the Coromandel they would of by now you think .

    The tvda don't know squat, the few isolated deer in the Coromandel have either escaped from farms or been released .
    That includes the Fallow in behind Thames. Its Cattle sick country & deer won't live in it ,no deer have passed Dickey's
    flat. The way it has always been ,Digby had some escape a while back but recovered all 35 animals. He had the Deer Farm
    at Owhara . I was the guy that told him they where out side the fence .

    Also another farm that has done that on the quiet, this one has around low 20's so far and establishing well.




    Id be interested to know what happened to the 11 wap crosses that escaped from the lifestyle block in the Waiwawa catchment a few months back during that flood.
