Hey fellas, I've heard rumours that wild veni prices are up and so just wondering what the general consensus is on how much waro activity is happning around the south island??  As far as I'm aware round my patch in the top of the south it's mainly bill hales giving the place a once over, other than that I'm hoping it's not gettin too much of a hammering.

Realy, are there that many Chamois around.

And the one RUAHINE WARO operator kept hard at it out side the 1080 zone until the end of November. Gut heaps every where. 30 odd (gut bags)  were counted along one ridge, I gather, and not a live deer seen

Could be a quite Roar Undecided

The price paid per kg for WARO shot wild venison has rocketed in recent months, going from uneconomic to shoot to very econmic. Plenty of WARO taking place in the South Island especially around the Otago area. The boom and bust cycle of WARO shooting has been with us for many decades now and at present it's in a boom cycle.

well there goes the big stags we have been leaving to grow bigger over the last few years...lets hope the heat has driven the big velvetys into the shady gullies and they arent out in the open tussock basins for the meat hawks to find.

Waro guys are quiet in the south if they are dependant on processing space at meat works ..... Preference is being given to farmers wanting stock processed due to the very dry conditions.

If DOC had not been forced to rescind the opening of the Ruahines to year round WARO, the tops would be a barren place by end of the summer.

An increase in venison price was always likely, watch out for more wanna bes Looking to get in on the act. The few RHAs and the like could get a bit crowded come Roar time
