    Just got back from the farm after a quick shot with my son.
    4 mallards 2 parries and a goose.
    Not bad for half an hour over a couple decoys.
    Dropped another mallard but lost in the gorse. New pup arrives this week.

    Shouldn't lose many next year.😆

    I'd like to say we got birds for Africa, up to our armpits in feathers, but Murphy came to play today. 6 birds this morning, and only one tonight. I was hoping for a good shoot, since it was the boys birthday, but he was over the moon with the 2 that he got. Great shots they were too. No wind and blue skies, just not the recipe for hunting ducks

    Any way we landed a couple of fat drakes for our effort.

    First one fell on the land.

    Next one landed in the pond and got munched by eels before we could retrieve it

    Buggered if I'd be retrieving anything out of that dam too.

    A man might fall over and quickly become eel bait.

    The boy walked on water the other night. Was picking up a duck and felt something pulling against him. Looked down, screamed like a stuck pig, and hightailed it out of there. Reckoned it was the size of his leg. I've had the odd big one barking it me before on the pond

    true deepen the pond to Dundee.
    but my uncle worked on that more the better theory when blowing a hole for the pump intake in his local creek.
    a fullish plug instead of half was used and when we retreated 50 metres away to await developments.
    we received a rather wet reply as Christ knows how many gallons of water were propelled skywards and what goes up must come down .
    thankfully uncle bill was the most soaked but his enthusiasm for gelly was never diminished.

    I saw a stump go cartwheeling across the paddock because .... it just need some extra oomph!

    Luckily we were observing from a safe distance on top of a small hill.

    Trifecta with Mack this afternoon and just missed out on a pheasant, he flushed four I got shot in the air but no result
    He is developing real well first retrieve on a swan big bird for an adolescent.
    Mallard was a drop in the drain find me if you can he was up to the task.
    He pulled up a winged pukeko too

    Picked up a pie & a drink for lunch from the Z station on the way out, it must have slipped off the front seat said sooty sitting in the back of the double cab with the rear seat up. He managed some how to get the bag containing pie through to his compartment with his paw I thought what's he up to managed to save it before said black pie muncher had done any damage
