    This is a good start.Giving the Industry the reins to try some moves rather than some Govt minister with an agenda stuffing our precious sport/way of life.

    thats hilarious.....and its not the FIRST TIME its happened.
    anybody remember a fella named Rex Forrester????
    back in the day,the tracks and hut network was put in with govt/taxpayer $$$$ to encourage people to use the outdoors,be it tramping or hunting.
    Rex was one of the first if not the first modern hunting guide with al lthe trimmings/trappings...the gloss n glamore to encourage overseas hunters in bigger numbers.
    the mountain safety council and deerstalkers have always encouraged folks out to hunt......
    look at any old MSC manual.....and new groups come up with helpful info and are basically reinventing wheel,its all there in black n white and has been for 60 or more years.
    but great idea....will see how it pans out.

    Finally something positive for hunters to come out of the govt.
    That said I won't start jumping for joy just yet....
    Who knows what may be lurking in behind closed doors to be dropped on us in the future ....

    More and easier access to some places might get more hunters out there keeping numbers down.

    There used to be a hunting training course for those on the dole back in the late 90's(?). Ran into a mod of them while deer stalking in the middle of the Kaweka's.

    think they said it will provide 14 jobs? (trainers i guess) ....... will they be sourced from mongrel mob ranks?
    call me cynical but all i can think of is someone waving a carrot whilst they have a dirty great stick behind their back
