    Tahr ballot application

    Can anyone give me a link to the application form for the tahr ballot, I cannot for the life of me find it, maybe I'm just having a man look but I'm sure it was just linked from the tahr information page on the doc website in the past.

    Yeap but good luck walking into most of the blocks, allow yourself three or more days either side to get in and out...

    Application done, went for Barlow, Lord , and Lambert as I know the blocks well, also applied for Zora as a bit of a wildcard. Fingers and toes crossed...

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    all the youtube videos showing just how do-able it is to the world are not helping.

    Don't think so, more the way it is being run by DOC

    I was 1558 Smiddy, If I don't get a block I have a wee possie that usually holds good bulls and is outside the wilderness area that I will probably hit up anyhow

    Could someone clarify this up for me as I've never applied for this specific ballot. Is this for a paid flight in and out of the area? or is it for access to the area and you have to pay separately for your flights?

    It's for the 'right' to fly in to the restricted landing zones. All costs, including chopper time (and including maybe a ballot success fee if they're still doing that) are borne by you.

    Appreciate the quick response time mate but shit...$60 for just the right to fly I fly my self on a daily basis for gods sake and find that to be a very money hungry type of ballot

    I am happy with the cost. It will deter some people trying to fudge the ballot.
    If Doc would stop
    non- residents being allowed to apply, it would be even better.

    I wont be f@#ked with the blocks when there is 1500 applicants.
    Waste of money. Happy to hunt other areas.
