    presumembly they hinder whitebait or trout maybe the native cocka bully??
    i know ducks loved them?
    any hoo checked the old pozzie out for goose sign hopin maybe the non breeding canadas had returned from the high country.
    no sign yet maybe later this month or november sometime.
    gates got a fn great padlock on it at wolfs/yarrs flat to stop idiots driving down in the wet and damaging the tracks and all the shite theyve planted around where the hut used to be.theres buckets of MORE likely thier plants because when i/we suggested they lock the gates when its to wet and make the feckers walk in like we do carrying our deeks and gear doc ''coquetishly said ''oh no we couldnt do that''
    green pick around fresh and ready to eat after the lake levels dropped,

    Had the big village shoot the other day. All guns under 20
    49 on the ground though the dogs got three so 46 shot for 299 can't say we didn't put enough over them!

    @A330driver, what breed are the three ducks at the top of the foto ?

    Mate,....that’s a bloody great question,..talking to the boy and the ones I’ve shot over the years,we believe they are part of the “Anas” breed of duck,very common here in Oregon and Washington.I will definitely check to see if that is correct,but have always believed they are of that family.My boy tells me,that there are 4-5 types classified in this breed,they vary,mainly by colour,and markings(obviously),and we see various colours,but common to all of them........thanks for asking,I should know that for certain!!!

    Thank you for your reply, @A330driver ... I am not a duck shooter myself but I am certainly interested in the waterfowl and gamebirds in other countries ... seeing the migration South of ducks and geese in Canada was a sight I shall never ever forget ... thank you ...
