    Can you elaborate on methods used to trap them, I live south Waikato and sometimes there can be up to 50 in one padock - when they venture close enough I feed them .22 pellets subs. But want a method to trap and then dispatch

    Sorry trapping them is a big part of my businesses livelihood so I can't share the info.

    You can get single traps here that might help you - https://www.trapworks.nz/pukeko-possum-trip-trap

    also mate if you can track down someone making cloaks they will pay/trade you for them

    I use to get $10 a pook for the feathers still in it frozen and this was 15+ years back
    same for white geese
    it was all for the feathers for making cloaks

    if you pulled them out and sent the carcass to the cray guys that would be pretty damn efficient

    Crays are scavengers - they take anything with meat/blood.
    Definitely not recommended - but I have heard stories of back in the day people allegedly using surf-casters with a good sized hook and a lump of bread to grab seagulls off the beach to cut up and chuck in cray pots.

    Have you thought of skinning them and selling them for fly tiring?
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.
