So apparently numbers better then we are led to believe with shot restrictions and small limit numbers (in Reporoa area anyway) Don't get me wrong the 3 shot max does not phase me the slightest. Just wondering if you guys agree with what they are saying?

Gotta love the media showing a picture of ducklings when talking about shooting ducks  Shocked

which seams late. Still a lot of very young ducks around.

yes thats intresting browning ,

you would think they would be scattered around all the new ponds  in the paddocks , i see a few in my work travels mostly flying ones and the  few ponds i do see  have not had birds on them

i know of one area that had the maize harvested of it just before the storm  and i have  never seen that meany parries on it ever

maybe the mallards  have hit the harbor or are sitting in  the drains but again i  see very few mallards

Driving home from surf-casting last evening and saw 40+ ducks flying around  between Pikawi  and Te puke golf course.
