So where are the 2 areas that the Blenhiem branch of NZDA think it should be used. Ospri wouldn't divulge it at the Hanmer meeting nor would they confirm its use in these areas.

OOPS MY BAD! Should read what are the 2 areas the NZDA think repellent should be used. Pretty much the whole area is being 1080'd starting in September.

From what I understood some of the area (2017 aerial)will have repellant used but not the whole lot due to budget and OSPRI are working with the Marlborough NZDA to identify which areas or area etc, undecided as of yesterday. Repellant will be used for part of it due to high hunter interest as expressed though submissions. I was told by OSPRI that of around 70 submissions received from the whole country roughly 30 were in regard to Molesworth and they have taken note. Apathy is the NZ hunters worst enemy.
Have a look a look at the tbfree website, submissions can be put in for the 2018 tb plan there, open till late September. As well the 2018 Molesworth aerial is mentioned there and repellant to be used in at least a part of it as well. I doubt repellant would have even been considered if there hadn't been a high percentage of submissions received to do with the area.
Was going to introduce myself to you Cantyguy but was accosted by a friendly OSPRI employee after the meeting.

Well that's a bit of good news. I got the impression they weren't that keen on diverging the areas the NZDA put forward. I did wonder who you were  Wink

I know the deer numbers will bounce back but it would be a bloody shame to loose that big mature stags. Hopefully the NZDA have identified the blocks they are coming from.

Don't get too excited yet Cantyguy. I am hoping the amount of repellant used isn't just a token amount. The problem is the extra cost of the repellant. New baits have and are being developed incorporating repellant greatly reducing the cost to little more than the standard present day baits. Paperwork, red tape is holding up the use of them at the moment.
The deer won't have much time to bounce back as the 2017 aerial drop area will be repeated in2-3 years.

Are you sure the issue isnt more about testing and proving a new repellent? Sounds like a new one, as EDR was tested incorporated in cereal baits and lost any benefit.

Not to sure what exactly the hold up is, most likely what you said, but was told its incorporated into bait at manufacture hence the cheaper cost.

re the new repellent

this is info we got regarding the Ruahine drop

Quote:
      The new additive for baits to repel deer is being developed for OSPRI/TbFree by Orillion (formerly ACP) but is only in the efficacy testing phase. 
      There will be a small trial associated with OSPRI Kapakapanui operation later this year, Questions being asked are: Does it deter deer & does it have no detrimental impact on possum control?
      I understand that following proof of efficacy then further work on assurance for safety to environment and non-target species will need to be undertaken before the bait can be registered for use
      Until the bait is registered for use it cannot legally be used in an operational scenario (it can be used for trial purposes but I believe only on a very limited basis)

Submissions close Friday 29 September, the last submissions regarding Molesworth were not completely in vain, with repellant being used in some of this years drop, and hopefully more used in next years drop and those after that.
