    I think a few weeks ago I posted a video of one popping mountain goats from a chopper with an AR.. Well they get to shoot deer from chopper with AK's too.

    Demand for wild venison boosts cull

    After a steep collapse in 2002, wild venison looks like it's permanently back on the menu, with aerial hunting continuing to climb in Fiordland.

    Department of Conservation ranger (biodiversity islands) Dave Crouchley said he was pleased with how the deer hunting had progressed this season.

    "It is good from our side of things to control the deer population and protect the vegetation," he said.

    According to DOC six helicopters have been operating commercially in the Fiordland area this year.

    "Deer numbers have decreased in alpine areas," Mr Crouchley said. However, hunters need not worry, with high numbers of deer still reported in areas such as Martins Bay.

    The aerial culling ceases in winter and during the roar for three weeks, to allow hunters free roaming in Fiordland.

    Southern aerial game recovery group, independent chairman Garry Ottmann said "wild venison is a small niche market compared to farm venison but it is important as both an export and for deer control." So far the season has resulted in 1557 deer culled in Fiordland by commercial aerial culling which is under half of the 4000 culled by air in the southern West Coast, Otago and Southland regions.

    I dont understand why they dont just extend the normal hunting season? :dunno:

    I don't really know where this is, but i'm guessing it's probably not in the US. Or else PETA would have a shit fit.


    Seems like a fun thing to do, but why not just use a ma duce and kill, clean, and cook it all in one shot...

    The species is overpopulated. They are keeping the population in check.
