    Why is it a waste? By the looks of the chiller its going to get chopped up and utilised.

    If its private land it wont make an ounce of difference to any one other than who ever hunts there. Mate chin up, there's that many deer running around our country side a few knocked out by choppers ain't going to make much difference. They'll repopulate and they wont ever get every single one.

    Farmers are dumb fuckers everyone no's that but look at it from his veiw.
    It's winter the grass ain't growing bugger all and from the number I can see in the pic they'd be eating about the same as 50 sheep.

    I wonder how the maths works out.
    Cost of chopper processing etc etc V the loss off income from 50 sheep.
    Just curious, not stirring the pot.

    Add in the cost to the farmer if TB is found because of some poxy deer. Im sure that the Wairarapa was once under movement control not so long ago due to TB found in the wild animal population. Could be wrong though.

    Looks like a pile of antlers in the photo, may have cut them off to make them easier to handle/fit in chiller.

    Good question?
    Let's say the 50 sheep all have 2 lambs at $100 each there's 10g + what he gets for venny less the chopper I think sheep win?
    But Gibo may be right they do look all like farm deer?
    But only looking on phone.
