I initially thought the opening was on the first Sat in Nov. But the regulations this year say the 4th Nov (Sunday)??

Going to be interesting that first council meeting and up until the report on the bequeathment comes out. I wonder if the council was found to be at fault the guys responsible fall on their sword or if the guys that called for the $100k audit do if it was all above board. Either way someone isnt going to smell all "rosey"

While I support F&G and my view that what they do is well intentioned you have to shake your head sometimes.

The first year I started Gamebird shooting they stuffed up the Pheasant Regs for north canterbury and then quickly had to reprint the regs booklet.  If you had the first copy then you could legally shoot 10 per day in North Canterbury!

Second year they stuffed up the opening of the summer game bird season.  They just opened up last years regs and changed the year leaving the date the same.  Sadly calendars aren't as simple as that so the season started on a tuesday.

Given that this is the core of what they do can't someone check them before they are sent to the printer?

That's a shame and sad to hear.
I cannot say the same about AKLD/WAIK branch esp re Game birds. 
The are super to deal with, really interested, which probably explains it.
