    To plagiarise the oft quoted, "One small step for Dunne, one giant leap for ground hunters".
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Personally I think it is a huge fuck up for everyone, if it is banned totally. It just needs better regulation, not banning.

    I guess if ground hunters don't keep the numbers low enough for DOC they'll take that as justification to go and dump more poison on everything? Having said that, I wouldn't think aerial trophy hunting is making much of a dent in total populations anyway.

    Because I cant be fucked starting a huge argument. I have been on both sides of the fence. I hate helihunting but their is, IMO a place for it. If you have to ask then you are not likely to know what I do, or see it like I do.
    Way back when HH come to light on the other forum I predicted exactly what has happened untill now. I got laughed at, and ridiculed. I cant be fucked with it anymore. I just know a total ban is going to be bad for the us and the thar. Period.

    I think we are mixing up WARO and helishooting in this argument.

    I think everyone would agree WARO has a place in NZ, not so for helishooting.

    In your opinion would chasing animals around so some fat Fuck can shoot one educate the others and make waro less effective?
    Only ask because i have watched animals that buggered off for no apparent reason then heard the chopper. They obviously new what that sound ment and surely more chasing less shooting would make them worse ?

    I dont think HH thar has any effect on Venison recovery. Thar do wise up in a hurry, however. I have witnessed boths side of that scenario.
    Flying around, so some fat fuck can get a trophy he can go home and wank himself over, is really not the issue. There is a greater picture at stake. People that do not believe AATH does anything for numbers are kidding themselves. The client in some situations, gets to shoot another 5 animals for every bull taken. Couple that with poor managment and DOC culling of thar, long term, animal numbers and trophy quality will really suffer.


    I think AATH can work for everyone but it just needs to be managed properly. Ballot blocks must be off the AATH table for a start. There is plenty of thar outside them. The ballot areas are getting pounded. Doc are loving it.
