A couple of farms I shoot wallabies on have said a big issue for them is that their neighbours won't allow hunters on so no matter how many are shot on their property they just keep hopping through the fence. Even fallow deer causing some damage for the same reasons. Somehow I always seem to find the wallabies before the deer though unfortunately.

I will be keen if there is another forum shoot organised.  The last one was the stuff legends are made of.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

Do you know a station down that way that might be interested to do a wallaby shooting weekend Fletty. Id be wiling to help coordinate it from here. Maybe limit the number of people attending to keep it manageable. Im also able to help on site to keep everyone organized and within the guidlines set by the station.

Fully understand if its not on. Theres a big difference between inviting a family on for a days shooting or 12 individuals for a weekend.

On the way back from my visit, we saw a dead wallaby on the roadside, about 10kms out of Failie, on the Fairlie-Geraldine Highway. I hadn't realised that they had spread that far.

You should have picked it up and taken it home. they are better eating after a day or two on the tarmac and a bit of blowfly magic.

Tender as.  Grin

Yes, they spread out real well. Especially if you hit them dead centre with anything weighing over 12 tonne, then they spread out at least 5 metres. Wink Used to drive 150 Tonne dump trucks in a copper mine in Aus. You'd get 10 metres easy out of the old wobbly's big cousin, a big old red roo Shocked
Due to haul road being 5m raised up from the surrounding desert, the mine rules were DO NOT SWERVE!

Ive seen them in the hills below the Macauly, there is a big population along the two Thumb range stretching in a straight line down to Waimatee.  They are likely already in the Rangitata, as many of the Two Thumbs range catchments have easy routes into the Rangi. Stag Pass for instance.
To the South the they have crossed the Waitaki and are spreading though Otago.

Theyare goo survivors climbing easily and can be found all through the high snow tussock in big numbers in the Summer. Snow doesnt bother them a lot too for a short time.
