    WARO industry status thread

    Post what you know. Who's working where, when, what's the venison price doing, etc.

    Just trying this out to see if we can keep a thread going with useful information perhaps. Will delete if it turns to shit.

    WARO industry status thread

    Looks like Ruahine are to be open for 12 month recovery. The closed areas are still going to remain closed but the 1st Dec - 30th April closed period will be removed with 2/3 of the park available to recovery 12 months of the year. DOC chose to not consult with park users and has rolled this out off their own bat.

    Edit: pretty sure I've just ruined the thread from the get go. Sorry, thought it was pretty relevant.

    Even with WARO operating from May to November in the Ruahines there are still deer to be found. Would still rather WARO than 1080.

    I thought that wasn't definite at this stage?

    If the current closed areas remain closed I do not see an issue. I did 3 months up there in the machine and it was limiting to say the least. Especially when you seen shitloads of animals ferrying thru the closed areas.
    I was surprised at the amount of deer in that range.
    You would have to be retarded not to get onto deer up there no matter where you hunt.

    It's relevant as long as people don't go off on irrelevant tangents about 1080.

    The reality seems to be that the upper management levels at DoC have an entrenched mindset that any WARO is good due to it resulting in free dead deer for them, although the actual biodiversity value of the significantly reduced WARO take in recent years is extremely debatable in my opinion.

    At least you stayed out mate.
    The no fly zone starts at the back off the farm it's funny when they think there's no one watching.......
    But yes lots of animals.

    I was up there in 2011. Never seen another machine.
    It wasn't worth losing my Waro or supplier licence to be honest. It was my only form of income at the time and it was good while it lasted. Had to face reality when price dropped and machine costs went up.
    Would go back and do it in a heartbeat but not at today's costs and return.

    I think because of some stocked countries now supplying under the EU we will never see feral venison at a sustainable price again.

    S&D will become the norm and I could never be part of that.

    WARO is still actively going on down here in Canterbury. Dark 500 has been hammering the Rakaia/Wilberforce/Mt Hutt/Mt somers area taking deer, chamois, pigs, goats and now a heap of tahr - basically anything that moves. Use to come through every 6 weeks to 2 months, but has been hammering it since the opening of duckshooting, chiller truck has been up and down the road every few days. Apparently either going to high end pet food or to some Australian market.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
