You can copy and use anything in this section from BC or BruceC so long as its ok by Alan. I wouldn't mind expanding or editing them for you. Seems like a good cause.

The kill is not the bottom line reason for the hunt, but it cannot be removed from the equation

About 12 years ago when i was 22, Three mates and I were planning our opening weekend for duckshooting in the Kaipara Harbour.
As we had a permanent mai-mai in a side creek, we had to work in with the tides. ON checking the tides it was low tide about 8am. So we would never have gotten to the Maimai in time if we had come in via boats from Shelly Beach Wharf.
Ole mate pipes up "hey! there is a island a few hundred meters behind the maimai we could stay on! Its pretty big!"
So the plan it hatched for the entire weekend. Four guys, 2 labradors, few boxes of beer to have after the shooting had finished for the day, some food, gas cooker and all the gear.
Two boats loaded up and we are off on the friday afternoon with thoughts of large amount of mallards dropping in next morning. We get to the maimai, and go about setting up the decoys and getting he final touches on the maimai when it start bucketing down! Im talking heavy heavy rain! The amount of gear we had to carry involved two trips each to the island.
On arriving at the island, its TINY!!! With a large pine tree in the middle! We all look at Colin, who says "hmmm it was bigger when I was a kid".
Set up two tents on pretty bad angles in the rain, and make the last run back to the boats to get the last of the gear.
During my carriage of the two cases of Tui, which by now if falling apart as the cardboard is wet I get a bit lost in the mangroves. So it takes me twice as long to get to the island. Not to mention I slipped on a mangrove and ended up in the mud on my back with cans everywhere!
I finally get to the island and mates have set up the tarpaulin to protect us from the rain. Its the size of a pillowcase!!
SO changing into dry clothes, its dinner time! So i set up the 5kg gas bottle "borrowed" from my old mans calf shed.
On lighting the cooker, we find the flames are coming out of the thread! So we take it apart, put it back together and try again. Same thing, flames coming out of the thread. So we decide NOT to use that!
So cold, uncooked sausages it it!
wet, cold, hungry we go to bed. Having my old Lab next to me snoring didnt help, let alone the angle the tents were on. Bunks would have worked well.
Up at 530, get the gear ready and off we go to the maimai for the 630 start. Tides going out, Decoys are ok. 630 arrives and here we go!!!!! Nothing. Infact no ducks seen for an hour. Mate decides to go check on the two boats. "oh cripes!!" comes out the cry! we go over to find the one of the 12 footers sunk! With my dads new 8hp Yamaha submerged! "Shit!, im dead!!" we get the boat up and bail out the water. The boat was sitting on the mud during the night and got stuck on the mud.
When the tide came in later, with one duck so far, i took the outboard and got dropped off at my truck. Drove an hour into auckland to drop motor off, with instructions to do what ever it takes to save/fix it (save me from dad haha) and I will pick it up next week. All this while in full camo and face paint.
Next into the shops to get more food, back to Helensville. Got a boat back to maimai.
For the weekend, 4 ducks for 4 shooters  Grin
No outboards were harmed in the making of this story hahaha  Grin


Hope this helps, if not hopefully good reading for everyone else  Smiley
