    Last shoot for the season, left Waiouru for palmy at 0430, arrived at the spot 0630. Things were looking good few birds around, first mob to commit, gun up bang and a jam. Turned out the extractor broke what a pain in the ass after traveling all that way. Managed to drop 1, then headed into town. No extractors in stock so I walked out with a Benelli M2 instead back to the maimai and she was all on, ended up with a Manawatu limit. In the end it all turned out ok.

    Got out last night for the last hour of the north Canterbury season, to finish off the boys school holidays , and a lone drake presented the only real chance which Arlo took with his .410, the bird splashed down but managed to pick him self up and stay off the water just long enough to make cover some 100+m away. The boy was pretty concerned he’d lost his bird but I was quietly confident the dog had a fix on him and no hiding place is a match for her nose so wasn’t surprised when she returned the dead bird to my hand.

    so cool to be out gun in hand with the chance of a goose or parry .
    litteraly 100,s of parries around but just not around us
    saw maybe 100 geese in total but they maybe on the moon as its to warm windless and buggy for them at the mo/
