    The kids, pup and I went scouting for some ducks to chase later in the week as the weather here today was mint.

    We found a raft of around 200 birds which will take a bit of nutting out on how best to hunt them and we plan to get into them in a few days.
    Scouting mish successful.

    Was mucking around at home close to dark and decided to head out to the Bro in laws farm as there were a few geese flying around last time I was home from work.

    They are usually moving between 6 and 6:15 pm. Got setup in a wee hole around 5:30 but idn't hear a honk for over an hour. Passed up shooting at half a dozen easy ducks while waiting for the flight. Nothing moving so I head back to the truck around 6:30, unload the gun and put it away. I noticed some rabbits on my drive in so grabbed the thermal and .22 and went for a quick look handy to the truck. I got round 50m from the truck when I heard a few honks coming right at me. Around 20 geese flew 10 yards above me on the way to their paddock and I was standing there with no bloody shotgun.😆

    Decided it was not my night so headed home. Will give them another go tomorrow nite and not give up so early.

    ah well -rain and all i decided Id have to go after ducks in mrs car after all.an obliging farmer up the grey valley gave me the thumbs up to shoot on his farm .
    arrive there grab sexy wee russian (baikal) and head down back of cowshed.lots of ducks milling about on the wing-rst up and watch em -see where they land ,"lets go"
    holy shit batman ,from the creek in front of me two mallards erupt ,-first shot of the season dropped the drake into the paddock!!
    now ive got two bloody parries stalking me ,warnin everything,so i goes into stalk mode.this went on for 30mins or so -i couldnt qiute get into effective range.,so bugger it.
    anyhow come to ye old electric fence gate-somehow hand came into contact with bare metal hook holding it to post
    a Decent zap-holy shit a mallard hurtles right over me noggin from behind-In desperation i fired an arse chaser-not that ;;whaaat-he dropped outta the sky into a nearby creek.
    I lumbered over through mud and cowshit but found a deep wee hole(too deep for thigh waders at least)blackberry out over the water and a few feathers -my nasty feeling is the resident eel /sare dining on my duck.still thats Murphy for you
    anyhow rains gettin heavier so set off back to car for a coffee-out corner of me bung eye i spots a very angry white head comin over the hill in the paddock.Hmmmm-one very irate parrie hen trailed by Rambo drake-shes hissin like a puncture.next minute hes got this WTF imoff and away he scrambles,she gives one final hiss and goes airborneonly to run into a double load from the baikal-a cloud of feathers and she dropped like a stone.
    Im bloody happywith my harvest.another jarring note -on way home coming through totara flat-large 4x4 towing a horsefloatroared out of the mist and as he passed a large stone hurled off the horsefloat tyres ,smacked the bonnet and hit the windscreen like a rifleshot. Thought i was fucked,but miraculously it didnt break or even leave a mark.
    givenim driving my mrs car (her second after i wrote the previous one off)It wouldnt look too good on my wifes favourite man ratings.

    wellk done that man, we did shit down boggy in a to mild nor easter
    my pick is he crawled up into that blackberry shit old son.
    seen almost identical on the rakaia bridge southern exit tho this was a truck and the boulder flew up about ten feet and landed on the bonnet of a car 50 metrs in front of me.
    suffice to say that driver needed a change of undies and a new bonnet.
    he panicked a bit to and swerved off the road thank christ there was some distance between us.
    kotuku ive concluded your a worry armed or unarmed and possibly the 2nd unluckiest vehicle operatpr in nz.
    i cant quite bring myself to call what you do DRIVING

    and that friends is the most intelligent character analysis ive ever seen from him !usually its hey you fuck knuckle or similar-used to harass me about owning an escort s/auntil l pointed out when i met him he was using a fucking escort p/a20g until like victor on the electric razor ad he switched to a remington.only reason he didnt buy the company is victor got the bastard first!
    mind you him and his other half are bloody great hosts and of that im eternally greatful.
    Iknow he sniggering too-bloody canes squared the ledger in wellington!
    incidentally that drake was fat as butter,but that parrie hen from the colour of breast meat maybe a little older than her appearance suggested.
    just had WCF&Gon phone asking if id been out -you been tipping em off bro

    @kotuku the male parry usually always flys around when you drop his white mate. When I shoot parries it's the white one the right one to drop

    you.l need jaws of fuckin steel to eat that parry
    you could always do a alf steptoe and take the portable gnashers out and give it a good pre gumming like he used to do .
