    Haven't done any prep this year but no dog. Might hit the river with @Sean and his new dog Ace.Will be Aces first duckshooting. Got my eye on a couple of khaki ducks that I've seen while fishing.

    About 30 ducks took off. Looks like cattle have been in again.Volt tester read 6.6kv so we didn't go any further,that should keep the cattle out.

    I have a small irragation pond next to my house, there is 5 white geese living there at the moment. Is it worth having a go at shooting it? Never been shot before, you get the odd duck come and go. Would the geese scare them off? Also being close to the house (100m away). Keen to have a crack, maybe get a few decoys and a feeder, will just get one of them portable blinds?

    my pond is 50m away from my house and it shoots no worse then the rest of the ponds. trying to keep my young fella quiet when playing outside the week leading up to duck shooting is the hard bit.

    Some of the best ponds I've ever shot was 40 m from a house and it made no difference. Another 80m from the cow shed.

    All my prep was done in Jan /feb. feeders are out now. Just stay away until opening morning. Put the ducks off quietly at 6:15 , get the decoys out in the dark then wait.
    Oh and stay away in the meantime.
