We all remember this massive deer cull using on Molesworth. The weapon to do this job was aerially applied 1080. Though it is illegal to target deer with 1080 that has never stopped the poisoners yet. Marlborough Deer Stalkers undertook to do a count of the deer killed on a small portion of Molesworth Station "all they could afford". On the small portion of the station
they counted a figure of somewhat above 300 dead deer were counted. Grim statistics considering that the hinds had fawns at foot. Now some of us have been awaiting the results of the Marlborough Deer stalkers Survey due in a year later in Feb 2018 but waiting we still are. The latest was we were promised the results on Feb the 14th so now that date has passed and now it seems that the Marlborough Deerstalkers could not be trusted to give an accurate account so there work is being Peer Reviewed . So what is this about, a lot of us believe that the Marlborough Deerstalkers have buckled under the pressure from DoC, TB Free/Ospri and our Government.
