    Upcoming Tararua 1080 Drop

    The good folks at NZDA have posted through a note that DOC are doing the second stage of their Project Kaka 1080 drop from October 7. Prefeed pellets will be tan and poison pellets will be green as per the usual.

    The map included shows the Project Kaka boundary, the helicopter 1080 drop can be expected over the whole area. All entrances are to be signposted; it's just good to get a heads-up before you go.

    When you get your license online they have accompanying infosheets for each area that you tick off as being the one that you want to hunt in - they call them "pesticide summary" so you could search the site under that heading too if you want

    And then you wish you hadnt found out.
    You have checked out old possies that were good.
    Think this is good will concentrate on them and then you find out they are going to bomb it.

    Now thats chemical warfare I might just call the white house and organize a strike on certain offices as it seems there is nothing we can do to stop the pricks from here.

    If they have a problem with an area why not tell the hunters where the bulk of animals are or heli ppl in there, might work out cheaper and not ruin hunting for future generations

    Because they and DOC know best !!!

    And in their (not so humble opinions) 1080 doesn't ruin anything except possums ...

    They have the technical ability to add deer repellent to the 1080 bait but usually don't because it costs extra money. I believe that they need commercial ovens to bake it into the baits somehow but I got that bit secondhand so don't quote me on it.

    I think that 1080 isn't going away anytime soon so if we as a group of hunters want to be effective perhaps we could try influencing DOC in the direction of adding deer repellent to their poison drops?

    I believe that this is being done in the Haurangis? Others on this forum will know more
