Tahr hunting in the 90s was pretty good for the rec Hunter. It’s all relative.

Sad it’s come to this, a lot of work ahead. At least it might stop hunting organisations paying lip service to the HTCP, our first major game management plan. Hopefully the opportunity to implement the Plan is still there in years to come, and hunters commit to it.

Those bluffs look a lot steeper than I remember trusty.
I tend to hunt the flats and sidle the middle these days.

could get a job and give sage better advice?  Looking at the details your silly gac is going to be around at least another year...

I still dont understand why hunters get so wound up about crap like this when they create the problem in the first place.  pull the trigger alot more, for every bull you shoot take out 20 nannies but mr selfish hunter is too busy looking after his own wants and needs!!

Very interesting that there is no mention of leased land , or private.! Give it 6 months there will be slim pickings on public land. Might be time to start charging a fee for access... Wink

A lot of runholders do already. Mate just got back from down there somewhere and I know he had to pay for access, got. A lovely bull though - I’m jealous 👍😁

what would you charge to let a random wander around your back yard, take a dump or 5, pitch a tent and fire a few shots and leave a rotting gut pile/carcass?

The separation between public and private land will see the area's cleared seeded again with migrating tahr pretty quick.  We will just have to hunt them for year or two.
