    Yeh it's duck opening weekend!

    Which means I get the hills to myself to find a post rut bonehead feeding up to poke an Amax into

    My mate Grant who's now living in Aussie would have normally come hunting with me this weekend.

    He was telling me I had better make sure my rifle is ready to do the business (as the 7saum hasn't been taken hunting for a while)

    So I went and put him at ease ...

    It's deceiving eh, it's a 400 yard range with a covered bench at 100, then uncovered benches at 200, 300 and 400 where I was ��

    Can shoot deer from our maimai, so potentially kill two birds with one stone...been done before (not killing birds with stones - shooting deer and ducks with shotgun)

    You probably wouldn't fit in down here with an attitude like that. Southland stops for opening weekend. Hahaha

    Even winter sports are played last night or tonight so they're not on the weekend! From kids grades through to seniors
