    yeah not a fan of the local beer and that duck pond is hard to get your decoys set up right there i find just a loaf of bread works best,
    other than that any other advice or points in the right direction

    Don't follow bad advice. Drink the beer and share it around. Gibo was on the nail.
    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

    Cant imagine karapiro being a legal place to shoot but i could be wrong. There are lakes at huntly and ohaupo that mates shoot on otherwise i believe you can float the waikato river out of town but again youd have to make some calls to doc or f&g and check as ive never done it.
