Confusing Game Management Policy

#1 Post by greybeard » Thu Sep 08, 2016 3:36 pm

As far as I can ascertain Hamilton Island in the Whitsunday's group is part of the GBRMP. ... sh/7824144

Hamilton Island, [approx. 5 sq. klms] with a permanent population over 1000 residents and a tourist resort can successfully carry out a cull without loss of limb or life.

For a good bow twice paid for, is better than an ill bow once broken.

Interesting Darrel, just hope they don't get into the Chital Deer which are on the Island as well. I guess since populating the Island (human wise) the population of wildlife has grown dramatically with the abundance of food and water now available to them. Worked on there for a few years a little way back and yes major problems with the wallabies,possums and birds eating everything in site, I guess it is a very hard decision to make for the Islands management for shore.
One of those catch 22 positions to be in, in this day and age.
