"Starting in the 1930s New Zealand undertook an innovative step to deal with what the then powers that were perceived as a serious conservation menace; the placing of hunters in the New Zealand back country to reduce the number of deer. So started the profession of deer culler; unique in the world, one of hardship and adventure. Later, authors like Barry Crump (A Good Keen Man) were to glorify the job and separating fact from fiction proved hard for many a reader. Here at last is an authentic work about the origins and methods of deer culling in New Zealand, written with the help of ex-cullers "Old Firm" and with the support of the New Zealand Deer Cullers Inc. The Deer Cullers is the book closest to the author's heart. He travelled the country far and wide to interview ex cullers, taking a full three years of hard graft to take it to completion. This being his eighth book for the Halcyon Press Hans is also the author of: North Island Back Country Huts, South Island Back Country Huts, Back Country Dunnies of the North Island, Scrub Grub, Hunting Smarter, Tramping Smarter and The Hunting Tales of Percy Lyes."
