    Pea soup fog until 9am for the first three days at Lake Aniwhenua where I shoot opening, then clear blue skys.
    I use two Lucky Duck wing spinners and they worked exceptionally well in combination with my calling birds dropping right into the spread.
    22 Mallards, 1 Shoveller, 1 Paradise, in the bag
    I've shot this possie for 7 years now and have got it sorted so built a permanent structure this year and it worked well the improvements for next year will be more flax / broom planting and build a step up to give me extra height
    New gear I used this year a big tick for Higdon Magnum Decoys, Hard Core Full Body's + Sport Sled I imported from Cabelas certainly made the it easier getting the decoys in and out this year ( Its chest waders and a 400M slog into my possie so floating the decoys in worked well.
    New gear that I won't been using again Mallard Machine - just didn't do the business for me to much weed so onto Trade Me it will go next year
    Managed to get a deer stalk up Ohutu River on Sunday afternoon didn't tip anything over but certainly gave the legs a good workout up a leading ridge
    Only negative to the weekend was I lost my camera in the tide it was due to be replaced so not worth $ but no footage of the dog working ...... which is priceless so here he is from last season if anyone can recommend a robust point & shoot digital camera it would be appreciated

    Cheers Hendrix was wondering how the upland hunting was going. I managed 1 female duck tonight at a creek and it was minus 1 leg not even a stump.Must of been bitten off by an eel as a duckling.Very small bird could of been a grey but took no pics cause of the gory state.
    No ducks at no.2 pond tonight..........this is why

    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.
