    Bloody weather bomb hit every paddock, creek has puddles in it.River is in full flood again. Finding a posey to find ducks when there is that much water around was tuff.

    Had two fly over but never presented a shot.
    Quad was well concealed under the hedge with all the old crappy hunting jackets.

    Dundee I have been studying this duck shooting lark and I have worked out that wherever I see ducks, I don't see duck shooters so it is simple really. Just go where you aren't there. That should improve your hit rate shit loads. There had to be five hundred Parries in the paddock down the road again tonight and not a shooter in sight.
    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

    Horrible weather in Invercargill, which was good as it got the birds moving. 3 birds 3 shots, pretty happy.

    Now I understand how the saying "having your ducks in a row" came about.
