DOC IS PLANNING TO ALLOW HELICOPTERS INTO THE RUAHINE CLOSED AREAS!
They have already done this in the Tararuas and Rimutakas. The new Draft CMS has no provision for any more areas where WARO helicopters are excluded.
Currently all of the Ruahines is either permanently Closed to WARO, or limited to winter deer recovery only.
The long standing WARO exclusions in the high use areas in the Tararuas and Rimutakas, have been opened to WARO, and the CMS will allow that to continue
(thts unless we win the Judicial review thats currently underway)
If you think hunting has never been better, and WARO isnt an issue, think again.
its only the current low price for feral venison thats caused many of the helicopter operators to stop WARO. That wont neccessarily continue.
The Ruahines are the only place left, where there is at least some balance between commercial and recreational hunting.
The Lower North Island Red Deer Foundation want to improve on this and get an effective Game management approach to red deer in all of the forest parks
