    Yep, come spring the numbers will explode. The combination of overseas ownership with health and safety have made things bad enough, with the impending law changes it will only decline

    Don't worry, they'll be forced to bring back those nasty black semi autos with hi cap mags, Oh shit there's NO reason to own one of those in NZ. single shot .22, the way of the new order!!

    Landowners need to be held accountable but also given assistance and solutions to help them control pest numbers. Old man is currently doing some contract work on Wallabies for DOC and shooting up to 300 a night. He came back home after a week on the hill yesterday and said it was pretty disheartening to put in all that work and then as he was returning to his truck last night he scanned a gulley over the fence on private land with the thermal and a quick count put over 120 wallabies in that gulley alone. DOC and the regional councils are throwing their money away and fighting a losing battle unless they can get everyone in a room and come to some kind of agreement on management plans

    Ryan,


    How widespread is the wallaby plague? We don't hear much about this around here. Maybe not a good time to say they look kind of cute hoping around in Australia....

    Back when I was at school I used to work for a contractor night shooting wallabies and laying feratox for possums in the holidays and at that stage (around 2002) the wallabies were still quite concentrated around the hunter hills, Hakataramea through to Waimate. These days they are right up the northern sides of the lakes, right through the Mackenzie and Fairlie, one was hit by a car not long ago on the Fairlie-Geraldine highway. They were contained north of the Waitaki river but several pockets have been found to the South now in the Oteake Conservation Area and in Danseys Pass. The problem is nobody works together to form a management plan and tackle the problem properly

    If you work together there won't be 6 bosses, 10 paper shufflers, 20 H&F policies, and their will be too much spare room around the trough.

    I need to go down there for a look with the lad.
    Mind you I don't have the firepower for proper culling, nor a centerfire silencer to do the sneaky stuff.
    Get the 243 out and get a shitload of ammo maybe

    I think someone was saying over 100,000 rabbits in the previous 12 months running, an unholy number of mustelids and feral cats, tons of wallaby and a handful of pigs. One crew averaging about 4 fellas picking the right nights and systematically moving through areas to minimise overshooting and shyness... All with SA firearms, no MSSA but a LOT of care and skill combined with suppressors, planning including identifying and marking shooting platforms and no-shoot arcs, comms with landowners so they do not risk any areas including start and complete calls - every step taken. Going forwards it basically will be poisoning I think, or import snakes for the bunnies...
