    Northern Ruahines

    Hi,

    Has anyone been into the Northern Ruahines since the big 1080 drop? Was wondering what the deer numbers were like? I've heard there is plenty of grass on some major slips in there but not sure of animals numbers?

    Cheers ,Karlos

    From the trips we have done there seems to be just as many in there now as before the drop mate.
    Good luck

    No animals. @ARdave killed the last stag and 1080 killed everything else. Pureoa and Kaimais is where its at.

    Is this data based on actual facts? Or are you another anti 1080 nutter?

    @Woody did you hear the interview last Friday on National radio (about mid morning)? A researcher was tracking bird calls before and after 1080 in the Aorangis.

    You sure it's not from firing to many big guns without hearing protection Woody?

    Fucking liars - there's so many flies up there; and they are so big you could use a 243 on them, fill your pack up & make sausages when you get home!!
