Pneu-Dart, Inc - tranquilizer projectors and remote delivery systems
The darting industry is very unique. I was hunting aoudad on the ranch all the time until I found out that one of them by itself can sell for $1000. .
Its very expensive as well. Its not actually my "job". I am in my last year of law school, and I am darting them on weekends for money. Its a lot of prep work. Best way to describe it is a mix between bow/rifle hunting. I have only darted for 4 months so far. Three months was preparation. High fence holding pen...customizing a trailer without holes..etc.. My shots have been 30 yards. There are several different types of dart rifles (projectors). Mine shoots a .22 caliber blank. Without much wind, you can supposedly hit an animal 80 yards away. Its about like a paintball gun.
Meds are super expensive. A dart, once filled with some good tranq meds can cost about $50 a shot. And once you shoot it...its done. So regardless...you are about to spend $50 hit or miss. You have to mix the meds before hand in accordance to its body weight and species so you dont overdose the animal. For instance, the amount of tranquilizer that it takes to put down ONE white tail deer will tranquilize FIVE horses. Its something to do with species/enzymes..who knows what. Like I said...its complicated. The website above has it all. Yes...drop charts as well.
