    When I was a kid on Kawau island they used to trap them. Can't really remember but they were big kinda pen style traps that would often catch half a dozen or more.

    Just outta intrest what are ya guna do once ya got them? I think these guys were exporting to aussie because of the pure DNA.

    A custumer was telling me one day he build one and used compressed air to fire it. Said it would shoot about 50 - 80 yards but was hard to aim.

    his was for catching kids tho .... While out goat shooting.

    We do have a net from an old gun so making one isn't out of the question, be nice to see a good design that works
