    Three of us shooting on a pond in the Flax block Hauraki Plains got a comfortable limit on the saturday (opening) Sunday we got 20 between us.
    Mon got three or 4 ducks between us and headed home.

    Got a swan each on every day as well. More swan around our area than I have seen other years. Could have shot dozens.

    Having a pretty average start to the season so far, poor opening on ducks. A few geese in the first week, and a couple of public roosters to date. will shoot the private stuff later in the season

    What's the theory on shooting roosters in the rain,? Does it bring them out of the scrub .?

    Duck wise, from what Ive heard the Manawatu has had a reasonable couple of weeks, I had a great morning on the opening Saturday ( did'nt go out on Sunday ) & Last Saturday ended up having to go by myself (as a couple of guys bailed at the last moment) & even though I was shooting like shit, still got 9 greenheads & a Puke

    Some places in the Wairarapa had average-good openings, But was talking to a guy that shoots a reasonable pond out'a Paihiatua & between 5 shooters they saw one Mallard all weekend


    So you never know, as they say- shit happens

    Blowing a gale tonight ,am packed Gunnar shoot my maimai out the lake in morning I'm in a good spot so should get reasonable shooting, just hope there some puff left in the southerly . My mates have had i think about 70 birds this week already on a rough lake. .installing log burners sucks can't slack off during the week everyone wants them installed yesterday. So this is my first attempt to shoot the lake can't wait .

    FAILED !. Good old fashioned arse kicking , and it wasn't me kicking ducks arses. That will teach me for talking it up .
    A combination of too much water and rough lake filled my cylinder to the top . I'm now building a portable builge pump . Just need to work out if a 7 amp battery will run the pump long enough .

    Quick morning hunt on Saturday resulted in 8 mallards. Had a balls up at first light when 4 mallards came in with landing gear down. We jumped up to shoot but then realised that in the hazy light they were too far off and they all flared, it's fair to say that we didn't get any of those 4!
