Ended up with a further 10 on Sunday.

So around 50 for the weekend. Better than last year. Hoping to get up there for a few more weekends before season is over.

Anyone see the story on Close-up or what ever they calling it these days regarding duck shooting and SAFE?

Nine last night on the river. Awesome evening shoot, ducks committed to the deeks easily and made for some exciting close range shooting.

Nice work .we had the worst opening so far 5 mallards . Didn't help with the sky busting going on in our block . Big ups to the Clarke boys  who helped contribute to our opening once again . Shooting ducks at high range and not allowing other ponds the chance to work the birds in. Great hunting ethics guys.

I got 6 mallards, the chap at the next maimai (same pond) got 8, which is the local limit for mallards / greys.

I am really happy with this, as I don't like to shoot more than I can comfortably eat or freeze.

I think this was our best opening for years, and while the weather was crap (warm, sunny, calm), it was a great day. I did drift off to sleep at one point, but this is par for the course for me.

This sucks, mate. It was an absolute pleasure to shoot where we were, the birds were called well within range, no one was sky-busting and the dogs worked hard and had a good day, too.

If one of us didn't get a bird, the other shooter at the other end of the pond had a good chance of having a shot at it.

I fired 12 shots in total for the day. Like I said at the top of this post - I was really pleased with how the day went.

I shot Ellesmere and we got nothing for the morning in the worlds smallest Mai Mai.

Sat night at the pond was:
3 swans
6 mallards
1 spoonie

Sunday night was very quite:
4 mallards

Looking forward to the first southerly now.

Looks as if there's been very mixed results for opening. The fine weather certainly didn't help many.

I hear you MA. That's what I'm hanging out for as well.

some images from todays hunt...

parries got to live, couldnt take some photos of them then kill them, they sat on the pond rather content till the first group of mallards came in.







End result for today, 14 mallards and a single male parry that came in ..

Well done boomstick, you're sure getting into them.

Looks like a really nice pond you have.

Great pics as well, thanks for posting
