If you want to HUNT
It’s coming up to the most exciting time of year for
hunters. The roar is only a short time away, followed
by the opening of duck shooting. With the build up of
animals in many areas, hunters should consider taking
females instead of immature stags. By taking females
there is a better ratio between sexes, which in turn
makes for a better roar with stags being more vocal,
competing for remaining partners. And, more feed for
stags means bigger heads. Not only are they in better
condition, that spiker could be the trophy of a life time
in a couple of years.
Doc has employed hunters to manage built up areas
so do your bit for conservation or you may find your
favorite spot targeted.
On another note we at Elders have been assessing
crops around Southland. It doesn’t look good, with
most crops calculated at about 60 - 70% yield for
winter. There will be a real shortage for this period but
we can help. If looking for extra feed - balage, straw,
grain, meal etc we have many contacts further north,
feel free to give us a ring.
Putting my hunters hat on again deer and other
animals can eat a lot of your winter feed before you
need it. Deer in particular damage brassicas with
their hoofs, letting disease or water in and rotting the
bulbs. If you suspect this is happening, give me a call.
