    I am just about to finish nite shift a few thousand kms away from any ducks.

    Hope you all going out have hot barrels and a good day.

    I am waiting anxiously for my son to tell me how his first hunt without his old man around goes.
    Lucky bugger gets to shoot the 2 best ponds on his grandads and uncles place without me.

    I get home around 3am next Saturday morning and will be heading straight out for a shot and try to catch up😆

    I declare it open season where you are on anything that vaguely resembles a duck and I grant you a license to take two hundred. So even though it might not quack, if it has two feet (no need for them to be webbed) then it is fair game. Sorted for you R93. Enjoy the practice and you score will count toward the season at home.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    We carried out a bit of sustainable shooting this morning.
    Went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.

    My boy got 8 reals and some parries. He seemed pretty chuffed.
    More birds around than last year apparently.
    I appreciate having mates I can trust to take him out for a good day.
    They should have a better day tomorrow as the sunday pond holds more birds.

    Only 5 birds for the morning shoot. Another 6 unlucky birds during afternoon/ night shoot. Stug's flocked decoys, and the lads calling made the difference I think. Instead of circling for ever just out of reach, they committed early and met their demise. No birds shot at got away. Could've blazed away at dozens, and ended up with more, but it was more about 3 generations shooting, and catching up on the last year with friends, not potential birds on the ground

    just the 6 parries for us at public ballot boggy creek.
    id all ready committed to shoot their with a mate so gave our pod to 2 other guys if I'm reading them right they got 13 mallards losing 4 in the shite.
    we lost birds to tho mostly they ended up at the next maimai down.
    at one stage we were getting maimai ones birds in 4. woundies and missed birds that rolled out over us
    f all mallards seen really and had only one chance at a greenhead.
    still great day with a mate but made me realise just how much I miss and really need a dog.
    just adds to the whole experience..

    5 green heads and a parry for the morning, and got a young fella his first duck in the evening. Got a bigger kick out of the latter - never seem someone so chuffed to get a duck. Have shot the same pond for years with my father. He's no longer about and my boys are a bit young, so really pleased to see another shooter coming along. He's about the same age as I was when I started shooting there.
