To be fair, the attached link put up does say possums are the target due to Totara die back in the area. Love the speculation of some just based on the heading of the thread.  Grin

All I get at that link is a 1 page map - is it on there somewhere or is there another link?

I see the original link did not have the letter with the map. Not sure if i have copied the DOC letter correctly but it is on the DOC site under Battle for the Birds. My bad.  Smiley

In the far north of the north island a poison drop has been stoped as Iím sure your all aware of .

Why do u not approach the subject on the same bases, ?
Itís your right to gather food , to hunt , to make a livening from fur Doc have set a president, if itís good for one group they canít be biased,
If they donít stop the drop itís discrimination against your rights to being able to rightfully put food on the table for your family .
As Iíve said they cannot have two sets of rules. If they donít listen itís discrimination. Biased, even racist..

My suggestion is use the tools that have been given to u ?
DOC  left the door open , walk in and close it Undecided

Hope the repellant works but... Waro wonít harass the survivors until its safe/legal to hunt, then they will have a field day with the deer that have forgotten about the helicopters, may be worse for the population overall if they are up high in the open which they will if they arenít chased. More big velvet/hard antler stags on Facebook pages with a grinning hero shooter holding them.

There is 2 issues in your post

1.Its the best we could of hoped for having repellant added, thanks to the NZDA.

2. Waro has been going on in there for a long time.

Its also going to protect those big totara trees which i feel is a better outcome than the Whangaroa drop that has been cancelled. Those big ancient kauri trees look buggered with the pigs in the forest spreading kauri dieback. Once those big trees are gone they will probably be gone for good  Cry
