Did anyone shoot Lake Ellesmere this weekend ?

A friend and I snuck over the ditch several years ago and shot there with a friend in his Mai Mai. Absolute perfect weather, which apparently is not what we wanted. Big learning curve that week being shown how to do it Kiwi style.

BTM thanks for the reply, sadly not really what I wanted to hear. We will have to re-think our plans for 2022. We shot the east to north side when we were there. Cannot remember exactly but between the three of us I think we shot nearly 20 Mallards over a few days. The local chap we were with had to go back to work and so Jason and I managed a few more duck but lucked out and scored several Geese.

Hope you had better luck shooting other areas.

Pete
