    Ruahine waro

    Just got this from NZDA National

    Ruahine WARO Decision

    The Department has reached a mutual agreement with the two operators who primarily operate in the Ruahines to vary their NI WARO permits by returning it to the 2009 restrictions, i.e. WARO may occur only during the period from 1 May to 30 November inclusive.

    In addition, where monitoring shows a need for targeted wild animal control in specified places of the Ruahines, the Department has committed to allowing these two operators the opportunity to undertake WARO activity in those specified places for specified (short-term) periods. This additional control, if required, will not extend into the current prohibited “helicopter-free” parts of the Ruahines.

    A decision has now been made where the Department will seek to negotiate with the remaining three current NI WARO permit holders to vary their current permit to change the dates to where WARO may take place in the Ruahines to 1 May – 30 November, while should the Minister consider it necessary, allowing for short term WARO activity outside the restricted season at specific places and for specified times.

    Any new applicants for NI WARO permits during the current term (expiring on 30 June 2018) will also be subject to the restricted season in the Ruahines.

    The decision has been made in the context of the additional information provided (during the engagement process) whilst acknowledging there remain issues with regard to the residual deer population in the Ruahines that will be assessed through a monitoring programme.

    The Department will put the decision and documentation on the website in due course, and will separately advise when the changes to the permits have been made.

    Separate to this process, the Department is currently drawing up the terms of reference for the wider sector conversation with operators, processors, the guided hunting sector, the GAC and the recreational hunting sector to look at a more long-term sustainable future for management of wild animal recovery in New Zealand (on public conservation land). This will ensure all users’ needs are recognised and accommodated in a manner that is acceptable to all parties. This will provide a certainty of approach that can then be taken into the next permit review when the 2015 WARO permits expire in 2018.

    Best wishes for the Xmas Season.

    Nice outcome.
    As interested parties I now challenge all deer stalkers to get out there and ensure there is no need for "Short term WARO activity".

    Hey man, i went for a quick fly camp 2 weekends ago on my own into the Ruahines, first time ever to this rd end, and first time ever up this river, weather was shit (windy as), heaps of sign in river bed and on river flats, definitely a few deer about, bumped into a velvet stag at about 20 yards only 250 odd yards from my camp early on Sunday morning, gave him a free ride back to my place ;-)

    Im far from an expert, but pretty much pick any of the normal rd ends, and plan your walk up the river/creek for late arvo/early morning, have your fly camp gear with you, walk at least an hour from the rd end or where ever you find heaps of sign, set up camp, and go hunting from here, heaps of grassy slips above many ruahine rivers/creeks, and often some good grassy river flats. Keep a good eye on the slips and flats until absolute last light, and from very first light. Some of the side creeks offer some good hunting opportunities too.

    Get out there, and spend time in these hot spots with plenty of sign about, and you will get lucky soon enough.
