ISSUE 67 - On Sale Monday 1st October

Tahrmageddon! Most of you will be aware by now that the Minister of Conservation has Himalayan tahr well and truly in her sights. Make no mistake, if she has her way, it will be the end of tahr hunting as we know it! Read Joseph’s article on page 34 for more background around this issue.

After DoC met with the representatives from a new Tahr Liaison Group in August, they have now released their revised control plan to satisfy her objectives (since Joseph wrote his article). The main take home message expressed by the TLG was, while they acknowledged tahr numbers needed reducing to some extent, DoC must not cull bulls - the NZDA has since publicly stated this is their bottom line. DoC acknowledged that at the TLG meeting. However, their proposed control plan ignores it by saying outside the National Parks they will only shoot 30% identifiable males (the age of which is not defined) plus all juvenile males - which is a complete joke – identifiable males are only about 30% of the population anyway!  

This issue we have... 

  • An ancient West Coast tahr
  • Tom’s first chamois
  • Adam Nicolls summer double – Chamois and a Westland Red
  • The monarch of the Alps – A huge main divide Red stag
  • Into Thin Air – high country Colorado wanderings
  • A commentary on the DOC tahr culling by Joseph Peter
  • Spring Jetboating
  • Basic 4WD Recovery
  • Quick and Easy Camp Cooking by Paul Garland
