    - Keep WARO and helicopter access out
    - Deer repellent on future OSPRI or DOC 1080 operations
    - Public access to station 4wd tracks and huts/camp areas
    - No further development of roads or other facilities.
    - Maintain "block" system for hunting.

    It's one of the very very very few places in the country where you can book exclusive access to a block year-round and hunt secure in the knowledge that WARO has not flogged it and will not ruin your trip, lazy <insert city here> hunters will not have flown in and shot everything they see, and that you'll be the only person/people in your block and will not get shot by an idiot from <insert city here>. A model that should be pursued elsewhere I believe.

    It's also an outstanding remote natural landscape with excellent opportunities for 4wd trips, something that is quite lacking on public access land in NZ.

    Continued farming operations in some form are likely important, but shouldn't take precedence over public access - they are not mutually exclusive.

    Improving public access provides opportunities for community participation in weed/predator/goat control operations to improve the management of native biodiversity.

    Keep farming it but manage the farming around public (especially hunter) access, and as Gimp suggests, ensure there are opportunities for "partnerships" with interested groups - we all need (especially hunters) to take a more hands on "ownership" approach to our public lands . . .

    Exactly what gimp says. Some sort of farming operation is necessary for weed control, recreational access should be as free as possible within that, allowing for moron control.

    Weed control and fire risk management. It is surprising how much difference to the fire risk stock can make. Shorter grazed grass versus long tinder can lower the risk significantly. Ironically reducing farming and reducing stock levels may actualy increase fire risk and thereby actually serve to reduce access due to the fire danger....

    Place a few dozen maypoles around the yuppie type zones, in the centre of big pits. Get rid of twig and tweeters and morons all at the same time.
