Scientific articles on NZ game and hunting

Print Post  
Over the years I have collected quite a few articles on NZ game and hunting. There are some useful insights that can help your hunting. If you have others, post them and we can construct a complete list.

Update: This list includes contributions made by Oscar and Grandad -- thank you. I've added some too. There must be more out there - Graeme Caughley's name comes to mind. I'm happy to occasionally update this list with whatever new articles we can come up with.

Here is an up to date list of everything we have identified related to NZ so far, with hyperlinks if they are available. Grandad, I dropped your Australian references on the basis that this could get right out of hand if we don't limit it to NZ. Perhaps you could start another thread on those.

There is a heap of information on 1080 too, perhaps someone with a keen interest in that could start another thread.

Good collection. 

Pity there's not more study done on our deer herds.  Are the Scottish Deer in West Otago still the only pure examples left in the world...now that would be a good research project.   Wink

Are the Stoke Park deer (Rakaia) still a recognisable herd of their own? 

As hunters we should know these things

Good thread MH.

Another paper it is good to familiarise yourself with if you're into this sort of thing:

"Introduced Wildlife in New Zealand: A Survey of General Public Views". Wayne Fraser, 2001. Landcare Research Science Series No. 23. Manaaki Whenua Press.

Not available to download, so I can't give you a link. It's available from Landcare but you have to pay for it.

Surveyed the general public to see what they think about wild game animals (not what Forest and Bird tell policy makers that people are thinking  Sad)

85% of people who saw a deer while in the hills said it added to their interest and enjoyment; 75% for chamois.  
 
94% said they would enjoy seeing a deer, 74% for chamois, 71% for tahr.  
 
Only 5% of people considered deer a pest. 39% said a resource, 55% said a pest and a resource.  
  

Herbs before herbivores

Not all those who wander are lost

Blackbunny has very helpfully tidied this thread up  Smiley

The first post has been updated and contains all the articles to date. Other posts containing links have been removed, so the references are all in one place now.

PM any other scientific article references to me and I will insert them in the first post (with Blackbunny's help).

Hell now I'll have to go check you have all the ones I used to peruse Shocked Shocked
Graeme Caughley's stuff was pure gold.  He took a very balanced look at things and kind of shook the whole ungulate ecology establishment to the core.  Think he got pissed off with NZ's lack of money for research and wen to OZ.  Sadly he died in a car crash way before his time.  I'd have loved to see him and Bill Axeby exchanging views.
