    Pea soup fog until 9am for the first three days at Lake Aniwhenua where I shoot opening, then clear blue skys.
    I use two Lucky Duck wing spinners and they worked exceptionally well in combination with my calling birds dropping right into the spread.
    22 Mallards, 1 Shoveller, 1 Paradise, in the bag
    I've shot this possie for 7 years now and have got it sorted so built a permanent structure this year and it worked well the improvements for next year will be more flax / broom planting and build a step up to give me extra height
    New gear I used this year a big tick for Higdon Magnum Decoys, Hard Core Full Body's + Sport Sled I imported from Cabelas certainly made the it easier getting the decoys in and out this year ( Its chest waders and a 400M slog into my possie so floating the decoys in worked well.
    New gear that I won't been using again Mallard Machine - just didn't do the business for me to much weed so onto Trade Me it will go next year
    Managed to get a deer stalk up Ohutu River on Sunday afternoon didn't tip anything over but certainly gave the legs a good workout up a leading ridge
    Only negative to the weekend was I lost my camera in the tide it was due to be replaced so not worth $ but no footage of the dog working ...... which is priceless so here he is from last season if anyone can recommend a robust point & shoot digital camera it would be appreciated

    10 mallards on saturday, 7 on sunday between me and my two 17 year old daughters. I used to be kind and let them have first shot but they are getting pretty sharp with a shotgun now so its first in first served. The ducks are fairly scarce around here (mid way between TeAwamutu and Mangakino). I've got a couple of feeders on ponds with plenty of cover which I don't shoot, hoping to keep ducks in the area. There are small numbers on each pond but not as many as I had hoped. The ducks we have shot have been in good condition though.

    I have a Panisonic Lumix DMC-FT2 camera. 2 meter shock proof and 10 meter waterproof, 5 x zoom. Apparently it takes videos (kids can do that), and is fairly easy to operate. The main advantage for me is being waterproof. Its about the same size as a pack of cards.

    Cheers Hendrix was wondering how the upland hunting was going. I managed 1 female duck tonight at a creek and it was minus 1 leg not even a stump.Must of been bitten off by an eel as a duckling.Very small bird could of been a grey but took no pics cause of the gory state.
    No ducks at no.2 pond tonight..........this is why
