They set up game cameras. Every time a man with a rifle walks past they add one to there list. If it looks like there are too many rifle - men they drop 1080 on the area to ruin the pricks fun.

They (doc) were doing rifleman surveys up cone ridge near the old xix track i believe? this is a few years ago and i think their base was near cone hut. But of course they have to waste plenty of money on the survey and wonder why theres bugger all about after they 1080 the joint  Roll Eyes

Don't know especially considering the bird only weighs about 6 to 7 grams

It is doc. Saw them at cone last year this time. Doing survey on cone ridge.
I too wondered what it wax all about at first. Then met the guys as we were walking out.
Yep. Choppered in.

Always makes me laugh when doc choppers people into cone as you could easily walk in there and back out after a days work..seen them trying to catch birds in there and also doing deer shit surveys.An then they say they have no money... Roll Eyes

umm, might be more efficient to camp in there for few days, rather than waste 3-4 hours walking in-out each day.
DOC do all sorts surveys in the area, birds counts , vegetation, deer/possum/rats,
all part of project kaka
They also fly into cow creek, mid waiohine and a few other sites.

almost as bad as fly-in hunters Smiley
