This documentary tells the epic story of helicopter deer culling in the Southern Alps. Introduced deer had become destructive environmental pests; in the 60s entreneurs shifted culling from ‘man alone’ to machine-driven hunting, as deer were shot then later live-captured from helicopters. Deer Wars — Top Gun in choppers, over the beech forest — revisits the heady ‘gold rush’ days where heli-cowboys calculated often fatal pay-offs between risk and reward. Features interviews with survivors and fearsome footage of men hanging from strops and leaping onto deer.

There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old, bold pilots.
